Get a Grip!!

I just heard that there has been complaining about the President and his wife being too affectionate. OHMYGOSH!!! Are you kidding me?? It was wonderful to see these two happy young people enjoying themselves on a triumphant and probably equally stressful day.
Do those people really prefer the standoffish behaviors of the Bushes and the Clintons? I for one am enjoying the fact that the Obamas act like a couple. She teases him and shares it with the rest of us. He looks at her and glows. What in the world is wrong with that?? They weren't exactly french kissing or anything--now that you could criticize.
If you preferred watching Laura Bush cringe next to her husband or Hillary act as if hers didn't even exist, then that is your problem. Leave the new President and his wife alone.
People are also criticizing the way Michelle Obama dressed. For crying out loud, what is the problem? She wore conservative clothes made by mostly American designers. What more do you want?? At least she wore something besides a two piece suit or a pants suit!!
I guess when you are a public figure you don't even get a one day grace period before people start to criticize. But remember Camelot?? Couldn't these people have a little time for their Camelot before we start dogging every step and every turn in their personal lives?
Come on, everyone, let's give the Obama family a break.
