"The flowers are easy because I've got the Rose Garden."

- President Obama on his Valentine's Day plans with wife, Michelle. Obama, who spoke in Atlanta Thursday afternoon, joked that there is no "more romantic way" to spend the day than with the press.

He wasn't the only politician giving out verbal Valentine's to the media. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, blew kisses to the press when asked what he got his wife for Valentine's Day.

"Same thing I got you, honey," he joked.

And United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice tweeted she was "looking forward" to spending part of her day with Jon Stewart, taping an appearance on "The Daily Show."
