This is too cute to spend much time on, so let's just be out with it…
"Today is Valentine's Day. Do not forget," [Obama] said with a grin, drawing laughter from a friendly crowd at an event in a White House auditorium.
"I speak from experience here. It is important that you remember this," Obama added. "And go big. That is my advice."
Maybe he should've clarified for Rick Santorum — by "go big," he doesn't mean the number of children your wife has to bear.
But the real message is that, hey, guys, the president's just like us! He knows what it's like to upset his significant other by forgetting about a day that was important to her, and then to apologize profusely like you always do, but for that apology to not be good enough this time, and then to have to move all his belongings out of her apartment because this wasn't just a single, isolated incident, but rather the latest example in a long line of neglectful acts in a relationship that seems to have lost that initial spark, and don't call this breaking up, it's more that we need a break, okay?
I need to be alone.
