(CNN) - President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, found themselves Monday night in a spot where only few lovebirds have landed: the Kiss Cam at the Verizon Center in Washington.
The first couple appeared on the jumbo screen while sitting on the sidelines of the mens' USA National Team vs. Brazil basketball game.

As the crowd urged the couple to kiss, the president held his arm around the first lady and smiled, but didn't kiss - prompting a wave of boos from the crowd, according to pool reports.
But fans didn't leave entirely disappointed. Not long after the couple shied away from some affectionate display, reporters were brought back into the arena to watch as Obama and his wife re-appeared on the kiss cam, this time with the president going in for a full smooch.
Oh my God... he's human- and just like me !
Really ??? THAT incredibly tame post is awaiting moderation ?
The last time I remembered it Mr and Mrs Obama were humans just like the inhabitants of planet earth! Leave them be,its not that big a deal if they kissed in public or in private. Besides, they are relatively young and smashing...the same can not be said of their nigerian counterpart. Now that's error. #Team Obama all the way please!
Wish I had that kind of power: to be able to get on kiss cam twice in the same night to fix your first attempt. I guess that's reserved for the leader of the free world and above level.
Sucking face in prime time.
Say what you will about this man, I personally like him.
My day is now complete.
I think they are an adorable couple and obviously deeply in love.
Nothing like campaign mode nonsense. What about Fast and Furious? Any "reporters" behind cameras going to ask when we are going to get answers?
The best couple in the world
In other news... where is the news?
Beautiful couple! I am soo proud of their family. God Bless.
Awww, isn't that so cute? I bet this will make us totally forget all of Obama's failed policies and his baseless class warfare tactics – and his big Bain lie.
If only he could run the country. Kissing is just not going to pay those trillions of dollars that he has racked up and that we, our children and grandchildren will have to pay. On top of that we have anything to show for it. We're worse off then when he came into office. Yup, Barack – you just keep on kissing and playing golf. I'm sure you will be re-elected, you're quite the charmer, liar and campaigner and obviously that's all the American people need to hire you into that position. Good job people. You really know how to pick'em.
it all gud have fun....
So who won the game?
That's so cute.
Awww – so good to see!
and this news, HOW?
That was really cute. No go from Mrs. Obama on the first round but prodded by their daughter they finally did it!!
This is what happens when given a second chance. FORWARD 2012
Yeah, and that certainly wasn't planned.
GOP is watching to spin.......watch out!!!!obama12.
