New book claims Michelle Obama prepared divorce papers to separate from Barack
Daily Mail ^ | May 15, 2012 | Daniel Bates

Michelle Obama prepared divorce papers to separate from Barack Obama in 2000 following his disastrous attempt to win a House seat in Chicago, according to a new book.

When he lost miserably the future First Lady was supposedly disgusted that her husband had ignored her warnings not to take on the four term incumbent Bobby Rush.

Their marriage - in its eighth year at the time - was ‘on the rocks’ with Mr Obama so depressed some of his friends feared he was suicidal.

The claims mark the second time the Obamas have faced allegations they were on the verge of divorce after reports in 2010 suggested they were having difficulties.

The couple have admitted that in the past they did go through a rough patch but that they patched things up and grew closer together.

The Obamas have now been married for 21 years and have two children, Malia, 13, and Sasha, nine.

In ‘The Amateur’, Mr Klein’s unauthorised account of Mr Obama’s life and first term in office, he claims that Mr Obama was over ambitious in his attempt to take on House member Mr Rush for the black South Side seat in Chicago.

In a crushing blow, he lost by two votes to one prompting claims from Mr Rush that he was an ‘educated fool’.

I thought it was because he suggested she get Breast Implants to accentuate her collection of fashionable Boob Belts.

If he was suicidal then, what will he do when he realizes he lost his presidential reelection?

I think I gotta side with Barook 0dumb0 on this one. Can you imagine waking up in the morning to that leviathan mooochelle snoring next to you. It would be like waking up to Godzilla. I wonder if mooochelle sleeps with the same angry scowl on her face, as she perpetually has on her face during the day.

To bad their fears were not fulfilled.

So is it just a coincidence that she was considering divorce in 2000 when the alleged Wild Limo Ride in Gurnee happened allegedly in 1999?

I don’t understand why people don’t make more of the fact that Obama’s mother-in-law lives with Michelle at the White House. If Bush’s mother-in-law lived with him at the White house you bet it would have been the butt of 1000s of jokes on Leno/Letternam/SNL/etc. But we get silence from comedians for some reason.

Must be one of those "shovel ready jobs" we used to hear so much about.

The only shovel-ready job nowadays is the White House jester apologist Spokesman, Carney or whatever his name is.

Cheers!

Hussein ain’t the baby daddy o’Sasha.

Mooch had two affairs back in the day and their second daughter be the by product o’ one of those trysts.

Waaaay off base, IMHO. Wives and children are off limits in a civil society. If he’s having marital problems it really is none of our business, and it has no bearing on his fitness for office (he has none). If Dan Rather did a piece on the Romneys’ trial separation in 15 years ago (just to invent an example) everyone on the right would justifiably be incensed at the invasion of privacy and attempt to make political hay out of a long-forgotten problem time in the candidate’s marriage. Ronald Reagan was a divorcee when he was elected (the first, if I remember correctly)— but I don’t remember much being made of this in a partisan way. We should treat our opponents with the same respect we expect them to treat us. Even politicians are entitled to a private life, as exemplary or messy as it may be, so long as it doesn’t impact on their ability to do their jobs. Leave the gossip out of politics—we’ll win in the end on the issues, not on out National Enquiring the opposition.

Combined with his stench, no wonder the First Family more resembles The Adams Family.

When dealing with the commie rats trying to take over our country, taking the moral high ground is equivalent to BOHICA because the left will take that as weakness and attack.

Families of Conservative politicians are fair game, and wives and children have been the victims of the most malicious stories, spun (LIED) in the worst light possible, and trumpeted all over the news reports and headlines for weeks.

Demwits? They will scream bloody murder in hysterical outrage if someone says Malia has a pimple.

You think that Ronald Reagan’s divorce wasn’t covered in a partisan way in the media at the time and afterward to this day? [shakes head] Sheesh!

Wake up and smell the coffee about just what we are dealing with here. “Double standard” is a gross understatement.

Well, I’m reminded of two things my folks used to tell me: Two wrongs don’t make a right, and never try to win an argument with an idiot; he’ll drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

Right on, dearest LucyT, but that horse left the barn within days hours of McCain naming her his VP running mate, and, ours is NOT a civil society.

I am not suggesting that we do wrong. Our reaction tactics should be more like theirs, though.

There is nothing wrong with making a reasonable, outraged fuss when our people’s families are attacked in this manner instead of running with our tails between our legs because someone on MSNBC might call us doody heads.

It is our disadvantage that we must stay above board while the enemy, and I mean The Enemy, lies, cheats, votes after they’re dead, kills people, and steals elections with seeming impunity.

We must be smarter than they are. Fortunately, that is not difficult.
