To White House outsiders and maybe even more than a few insiders, the life of a first lady would seem to be a fairly anxiety-inducing one. After all, there is no greater fish bowl than 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
So NPR's Michel Martin, host of Tell Me More, asked the first lady during an interview scheduled to air Tuesday how she deals with the pressures of being both the president's wife and the mother of school-age children.
Mrs. Obama, however, didn't accept Michel's premise:
"I have to disagree. I don't have the stressful job. He does. I have the privilege of working on the issues that I choose and the issues that I feel most passionate about.
"There are definitely pressures that come from being in the spotlight, but they are far overshadowed by the amount of great things I've been able to do and the impact I've been able to have. And to be able to do it in the warmth of the White House and to do it around people who do care about my kids and a country that has been respectful of mu children and their privacy, it has been less stressful than I would have imagined for me.
"The president's job is a lot harder. That's why I'm working hard to get him re-elected. Because he's handled himself with a level of grace and poise that not many people could given the challenges he's faced.

The Wookie needs to be reminded in no uncertain terms that she holds no position, and though she has frittered away a boatload of taxpayers hard earned dollars, she is most definitely not empress of Amerika!
Since she's more concerned with pestering Americans about how they eat instead of working some of that fat off her butt and thighs, she's obviously a filthy hypocrite. I didn't know that was a job.
At least she has the honesty to admit it.
Perpetual Lavish Vacations are SO stressful!!
I won’t insult Wookies by calling her “Wookie”. Wookies everywhere are offended when we do this.
Asked to comment on the Rosen-Romney contretemps, she said:
“Let me tell you, the one thing I believe is families are off-limits. My husband said it, and he was clear on that, and I totally agree with him. Also, my comment that I tweeted was, we need to respect all women in whatever positions and roles that they play in this society. That’s where we need to be. And I think that’s all I have to say on the issue.”
Ah, there’s the point of the orchestrated Rosen “dust-up”. MO, her pet project$, vacation$, etc. are off limits.

Chewbacca doesn’t have a job! She just jets around the world, staying in 5 star hotels and spending our money as if she actually did anything to earn it. I cant wait to send Chewbacca’s oversize ass back to Kenya with her husband Barry in November.
“great things I’ve been able to do and the impact I’ve been able to have. “
Sorry, I must have missed them.
Just when will this deranged, self-entitled grifter (mooch-elle) go back to Chicago?
,,,,, come on Moochie ,,, planning all those lavish trips has to be very stressful ,, Give yourself some much needed credit ,,, planning all those stinky meals for our school children must take it’s toll on you ,, being the biggest moocher in the world has to be wear you down ,,,, I just don’t think you’re giving yourself the credit you’re due .
