15 Photos That Prove Michelle And Barack Obama Are Made For Each Other
All through these eight years the one person who's back Obama always had was none other than his wife Michelle Obama. And in his farewell speech the outgoing President never forgot to thank his wife and his family for supporting him and doing extremely well even in difficult times.
In a recent post on The White House's official page, outgoing First Lady Michelle Obama wrote a touching post dedicated to husband and outgoing President of the United States of America Barack Obama. She wrote, "Being your First Lady has been the honor of a lifetime. From the bottom of my heart, thank you."
On Tuesday, Barack Obama addressed America and the world for the last time as US president in a speech that was both a tearful goodbye and a call to arms.
Capping eight years in the White House, Obama returned to his adopted hometown of Chicago to recast his "yes we can" campaign credo as "yes we did."
And all through these eight years the one person who's back Obama always had was none other than his wife Michelle. And in his farewell speech the outgoing President never forgot to thank his wife and his family for supporting him and doing extremely well even in difficult times.
He said, "Michelle - for the past twenty-five years, you've been not only my wife and mother of my children, but my best friend. You took on a role you didn't ask for and made it your own with grace and grit and style and good humor. You made the White House a place that belongs to everybody. And a new generation sets its sights higher because it has you as a role model. You've made me proud. You've made the country proud."
Michelle too, time and again has displayed her love and support for her husband. On the day Barack was to deliver his farewell speech, Michelle took to Twitter and wrote, "So proud of @POTUS and all that we've accomplished together. An incredible journey filled with remarkable people. I love you Barack. -mo (sic)."
The love, affection, support that the two show for each other, the sweet talks and little moments that they steal despite being in public glare, the care they express for one another is nothing less than magical. And it seems as if the two were always meant to be together.
Here are some never seen before photos that are proof that Barack and Michelle Obama are made for each other.
