What do you think about the Obama family?

Is anyone else kind of annoyed about hearing about the puppy, the daughter's going to school, michelle's dress, etc? I'm all for love but I feel that some of it has to be fake because you can't be that lovey dovey every single time. Even couples that love alot have disagreements and their moments. I just find something creepy when I see them it seems kind of fake to me. Does anyone else feel that way or see it? Every family has some dysfunctionality it just seems too perfect and nothing and no one is perfect.

I guess that is but natural that when you are in the limelight you will try your best to look good in front of others. I think they do not need to show that there is a problem with their family. I guess that is their personal business for us to know. I think just leave them as they are in their own private lives.

I agree, however they are trying to show that the Obama's are a normal family so why not show the true colors? It just seems a bit hypocritcal to me and I and others don't buy it. No one is perfect.

Well how would you want them to depict Obama then? I think if you are the reporter and you see them as a normal family then you report them as is. But then, if you find something that is not then you just report them as what you seen. How about you how will you depict them as a family? As for me I haven't seen anything irregular in the family so far. I also do not see any hypocritical about their lives. I've only known them since the campaign and the election time beyond that I really do not know what lies beneath and I am not interested if that would just mean I have to put them down.
