From the Daily Mail:
Michelle Obama thinks being Americas First Lady is hell, Carla Bruni, [France's First Lady], reveals today in a wildly indiscreet new book.From the Chicago Sun Times: April 23, 2009 - [excerpt]:
Miss Bruni reveals that Mrs Obama replied when asked about her position as the U.S. presidents wife: Dont ask! Its hell. I cant stand it!
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...
Get the popcorn!!!
Hey, that’s only if she had to pick a job at the White House.
I hate that your living in the White House too, but don’t worry... help is on the way.
Like wow, I’m so college educated, ya know, and ok, gee, it’s soooo much fun being able to do what I want and eat lobster and stuff every day, and ya know, like the servants have to do what I say and stuff and being First Lady is hell, oh sorry, um, I meant like gee it’s great and stuff.
“uh, duh, you know, ummm, wow, uh, I’m the best of America, educated in the Ivy League and, umm, you know, this is how we talk at, uh, Princeton.... wow, um, do ya wanna read my Princeton honors thesis?”

Been hell for us too, Chewy.
It's "HELL" for us too, 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...
Send in the clown.
geeezzz,,,we have something in common
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?
Look at them chowing down! They want to order everyone as to what they eat and feed their kids and look at them going for the junk food!
those poor, POOR downtrodden blacks.....you just wanna cry.
When, oh, when will there be equal rights in this country?!?
Then quit and move out.
Just PERFECT! LOL!
