If it werent for the National Enquirers outstanding work on the John Edwards Baby Mama story, this new story would easy to laugh off. But nobodys laughing. Especially Barack Obama.
Lots of broken bottles next to the smashed dishes in the White House it seems...
It doesn’t matter if it’s the truth, the slander, if it is slander, is out there now.
That’s what the tabloids do, and this tabloid is connected to a former first lady.
A candid shot from her recent Paris trip...;)
“Does Michelle Obama Have A Drinking Problem?”
Married to HIM?? I hope so for her sake!
My first guess from seeing the condition of her eyes during the campaign is that she is on some serious anti-depressants.
He is the only thing going for her without her she would be absolutely nothing except another angry woman
The original story appeared in the Enquirer and it appears to be offline... the entire newspaper.
Technically, if it were not true, it could be libel rather than slander, as it is in writing.
More stories have been appearing, including one about her drinking while possibly pregnant - if that other rumor turns out to be true.
A mean drunk is a nasty animal.
“Does Michelle Obama Have A Drinking Problem?”
We have to consider the source here. As much as I detest the 0bama presidency, I don’t believe this particular story any more than I would the crap the Enquirer was throwing out about Sarah Palin having an affair. My default position is: if it’s from a tabloid, it’s crap.
...you mean we should expect BHO _not_ to drive her to drink?
Are you a friend of Bills?
It DOES matter if it is the truth. But it it not slander on the part of the Enquirer in any case. Slander is spoken, libel is written.
By definition, if it IS the truth, it is NOT libel.
And, if it is NOT the truth, then it IS libel.
But, the Obamessiah’s “pocket-media” can easily be geared up in just a few minutes to “lead” or “headline” with the real story for as long as it takes to make the “bad” story go away.
Of course, he could always get his lap-dog congress to pass legislation making it a federal crime to even THINK about any aspect of the 1st lady’s personal life.
How could drinking a little poss-ibly affect the way one dr-dr-dr-dresshes?
It’s the seriousness of the charge.
While this would explain a lot it would be awful. It would then basically put MO on the "do not touch" list. She would be untouchable by the media for sympathy and "privacy".
BTW, I would love to be able to attend one of her AA meetings....
Maybe it is the other way....Obama has a wife problem...
now that would be a riot if she is an alcoholic and starts acting up. That might make Obama hit the crack pipe again and put Larry Sinclair on his speed dial.
Weren't there rumors to that effect, that they almost broke up before the campaign?
Hello,my name is Michelle,what you lookin’ at you white
That woman’s too well dressed.
By the time The Michelle Obama Clinic is opened, Sharia Law in America will prohibit anything being named after a woman.
I use to feel that way until they uncovered the edwards scandal that the msm were covering up
Wow, who is the woman she is glaring at? I would be a little scared. :/
As a martini drinker myself (from time to time), I would say that she is a serious drinker if that is her favorite drink.
My experience with martinis is that those who enjoy them fall in one of two categories...(1)those who love good gin or vodka yet have the discipline and strength to sip slowly and (2) those who love good gin or vodka and have no plans to drink moderately.
Given the intensity of her personality and the headiness of her current position, she strikes me as someone in the second group.
She must have “a hole in her soul.”
What specific effect do antidepressants have on eyes?
Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. I don't think Carla gives a fig what MO thinks.
Her face seems to relax into a scowl.
That would be Madamoiselle Sarkozy, first lady of France.
That’s the Prez of France’s wife, Carla - who is not at all impressed with BHO or Empress Michelle.
“I can’t believe I’m the first to say it but heavy drinking could explain the choice of clothing”
She may not have a drinking problem. But she and her husband are giving me one.
“I use to feel that way until they uncovered the edwards scandal that the msm were covering up”
They used to say George W Bush was drinking again, with some regularity. Not the Enquirer, necessarily, I wouldn’t want to libel anyone.
I’m no expert of course but with the people I have dealt with thru a whole range of antis they have a delay or mellowing effect that helps to abort the temporary highs which preceed the lows (the hard part). It was one night that I noticed it, heck she might had a couple of glasses of wine before the event so I really don’t know.
They’d have to bring in drunks with top secret clearance to have meetings with her. I’m sure there are plenty, as far as that goes.
They also broke the story about Jesse Jackson's mistress ad love child - the MSM also would not touch that story either.
“Martini” is just a euphemism for drinking straight hootch. Firewater.
Anyone wanna post the Tereza Heinz pix?
But as they say, where there's smoke...
And were the only ones dishing straight dope about the Clinton-Blewinski scandal. That was the big joke back then - the Enquirer and Pravda had become legit, and the so-called mainstream media had become Pravda and the Enquirer.
As to Michelle, the one constant I have noticed about her facial expression is a hardness bordering on angry. I think an antidepressant (whether needed or not) might improve her appearance.;-)
I dunno, but I hear if you soak 9 white raisins in a flask of gin, then drink the gin and throw away the raisins, it will cure arthritis.
