Michelle Obama: I hate being first Lady, it's hell, but it's a lot of fun and a real joy
The Obama Report ^ | 9/15/10

Posted on 09/15/2010 9:46:41 PM PDT by Frankusa

From the Daily Mail:

Michelle Obama thinks being America’s First Lady is ‘hell’, Carla Bruni, [France's First Lady], reveals today in a wildly indiscreet new book.

Miss Bruni reveals that Mrs Obama replied when asked about her position as the U.S. president’s wife: ‘Don’t ask! It’s hell. I can’t stand it!’

From the Chicago Sun Times: April 23, 2009 - [excerpt]:
Michelle Obama celebrated "take your child to work day" at the White House by taking questions from kids of White House staffers:

Q If you had to choose a job in the White House for a day, what would you choose?

MICHELLE OBAMA: If I had to choose a job in the White House, it would be this job, being First Lady. I think I have the best job in the White House, because like I said, I get to -- I don't have to deal with the hard problems every day... And there's so much fun to be had in service. And it's -- because I don't get paid, I get to do whatever I want to do. And it's kind of a -- it's kind of a good mix of substantive stuff, things dealing with issues, but it's also fun stuff. So I think I have actually one of the best jobs in the White House...

Q What's your least favorite thing to do in the White House?

MICHELLE OBAMA: What's my least favorite thing to do at the White House? Wow. You know, I don't know that there's a least favorite thing to do. Gosh, I don't have to do anything that is all that bad. That's a really good question. I don't think I can list one thing that I just don't like to do... Maybe it's running on the treadmill... Sometimes I don't like to do that. But pretty much everything that I've done here so far has just been a real joy...

Q How does it feel to be the First Lady?

MICHELLE OBAMA: You know, it feels just like probably being a mom... I wake up every morning..., making sure that my kids get to school on time and they do their homework. And then I get to have a lot of fun because I get to do things like come and talk to you guys and go out to schools and plant a garden and go visit military families. So I think it's a lot of fun, the job that I have. But it feels good, actually...

Q My name is Cynthia..., and what is it like to be at the WhiteHouse, to live at the White House?

MRS. OBAMA: Well, since I answered that question already, it'sfun, okay? It's great...

Q How does it feel to be the first exquisitely dressed First Lady?

MICHELLE OBAMA: You know, it feels great being adored for my fashion sense... I wake up every morning..., and decide what color I will be. And then I get to pick out which belt I will wear. So I think it's a lot of fun, the job that I have. But it feels good, actually...

The same as her husband.

She is not upset by ‘being’ first lady. He is upset by ‘being’ President.

The thing that irritates them both, is what we White honky folk call ‘expectations’.

They are not used to aspiring to anything. No aspirations, no expectations.

Now they are both expected to actually ‘do’ something and they are baffled.

What is this ‘doing something’ that you guys keep harping on?

------------------------------

Right!

I would say that that's the quote of the day Gator!

Our anger could not be the result of a president perpetually on vacation or on the golf course or out campaigning and fund-raising or shooting hoops and looking cool while oil flowed into the gulf, the the economy tanked, an average of 500,000 people a week signed up for first-time unemployment benefits while Michelle is renting 60 rooms in Spain eating caviar and living the high live and the president is too busy to meet with his commander in Afghanistan - the war of his choosing, or meet with the governor of Arizona to come to an agreement on securing the border before suing her and her state.

When you vote someone into the presidency without the experience of a hot-dog stand manager, you get turd-in-the-punchbowl results.

Liar = Obama.

Cheater = Feds.

Thief = Congress.

Con artist = Piss-Stream Media.

Throw 'em all out.

IMPEACH-8sm

So maybe her hubby considers their money separate and she has nothing while he has millions? Interesting.

But even if that's not true Michelle is a serious malcontent.

She’s bored, that’s all.

That’s why bammy has to take her on more and more expensive trips and continue the over the top meals.

If she had some sort of talent or connection with this country, she could find something to do to occupy her time. But, sorry there mooch elle, you are not one of us and you are just like your kenyan boy king. Got there by what you are not by what you can accomplish.
Are mooch elle’s chickens coming home to roost?

When she was asked least thing she liked to do in the Whitehouse, I would think laying under that man might have slipped out :)

I don't think I can list one thing that I just don't like to do... Maybe it's running on the treadmill... Sometimes I don't like to do that.

Ya Think?....

I never realized 'treadmill' was mandatory in the FLOTUS handbook.

She enjoys the playing and the boondoggling on our money. Its the part where she has to act nice toward blue eyed devils that she can’t stand.

There is no good within that corrupt—incompetent—self serving family.

Tossing this rubbish out of OUR White House can’t come soon enough.
