09 Sep The President & His First Lady ! Barrack & Michelle Obama Are Too Adorable As They Cover Essence Magazine
The First Couple That Became The Cynosure Of Pop Culture .
It’s been 8 years since the Obamas came to power. As they prepare for their last days in the White House, Essence magazine spotlights the power couple for it’s October issue in what can be seen as a mini send-off. While the Obamas pose romantically in the images seen, they open up on their 8-year journey in power, state of the nation, life after the White House and more .
Potus believes that America is definitely better off than when before he came into office : “…I can unequivocally say that America is better off now than we were when we came into office. By almost every economic measure, we’re better off,” President Obama said. “But having said that, we still have a lot of work to do.”
First Lady Michelle Obama is proud of how the First family has impacted on the lives of Black kids : “I think when it comes to Black kids, it means something for them to have spent most of their life seeing the family in the White House look like them,” Flotus said. “It matters. All the future work that Barack talked about, I think over these last few years, we’ve kind of knocked the ceiling of limitation off the roofs of many young kids; imaginations of what’s possible for them. And as a mother, I wouldn’t underestimate how important that is, having that vision that you can really do anything—not because somebody told you, but because you’ve seen and experienced it. I think that will be a lasting impact on our kids.”
