Is the Obama marriage on the rocks? Astonishing claims emerge of ugly fights
The Daily Mail ^ | 1-18-14 | Tom Leonard

Posted on 01/18/2014 6:55:47 AM PST by afraidfortherepublic

With invitations warning guests to ‘EBYC’ — Eat Before You Come — and rumours they’ll be dancing to star turns from Beyonce and her rapper husband Jay Z, it won’t be your usual White House knees-up.

Michelle Obama was 50 yesterday and President Barack Obama will be feting his redoubtable First Lady tonight with a party that will give them the chance to let their hair down and forget their troubles for a few hours.

The email inviting guests to the ‘snacks & sips & dancing & dessert’ advised them to wear comfortable shoes and practise their dance moves.

Purse-lipped Washington etiquette experts have tutted at the informality of it all, but the Obamas have always been keen to appear accessible, even if the stand-offish reality is somewhat different.

The Obamas are the world’s most scrutinised couple at the best of times, but it will be rare to find a guest at the bash who won’t be secretly watching them with particular interest.

After all, the last time they were pictured together — at Nelson Mandela’s memorial — the First Lady was looking none too pleased as the her husband posed for a ‘selfie’ photograph with the leggy blonde Danish Prime Minister, Helle Thorning-Schmidt.

Indeed, if the U.S. tabloids are to be believed, the relationship of Washington’s golden couple is facing problems that go far beyond dirty looks.

Under the headline Obama Divorce Bombshell!, the National Enquirer claims their 21-year marriage has dissolved in a string of ugly fights that were prompted by the Mandela memorial incident and — far more outrageously — Mrs Obama’s discovery that Secret Service bodyguards had been covering up infidelity on her husband’s part.

It’s an allegation the White House has declined to comment on, though after Bill Clinton’s trouser-dropping scandals, Americans would be rather...

Full title: Is the Obama marriage on the rocks? Astonishing claims emerge of ugly fights over that selfie, and even a Presidential affair

This is the Daily Mail's take on the National Enquirer story about trouble in paradise reported last week. There are additional details reported here, plus dots connected to other reports, such as effect on Hillary's political ambitions.

FTA: As for the First Lady, she plans to show she’s young at heart tonight by doing the Dougie, a hip-hop dance popular with cool American teenagers.

Whether she’ll feel the urge to slow dance with the President remains to be seen.

Can anyone in their right mind imagine being married/intimate with either one of them?

Personally, I think it is a sideshow and a trap. They want to make their own I Love Lucy episode and distract us from the train wreck.

If they divorce after he leaves office, does she still get USSS protection?

If you have not seen this “President Psycho” photo bio of Obama, it’s really excellent.

No doubt Michelle is just Obama’s “beard” in an arranged political marriage.

The Clintons have been on the verge since about 1994 and they are still married.

Rumors of problems with the Obama marriage have been going on for 5 years.

Elvis continues to be spotted at convenience stores throughout the world.

Marilyn, JFK, Elvis. Those used to be the ‘slow news day’ topics. Then, the Clintons got added in.

Tabloid fodder.

Since he was elected President, two books have claimed the couple came close to splitting in their early years together, with Mrs Obama even drawing up divorce papers after deciding his burning political ambition was ruining their chances of domestic happiness.

In 2009, veteran Washington reporter Richard Wolffe claimed that the marriage almost collapsed nine years earlier because of Obama’s political drive and the family’s shattered finances.

Why did she discontinue divorce proceedings? Because Rev. Wright and Jesse Jackson both promised her that if she stuck it out with Barry she would have no money worries anymore.

So, she's in it for the money...especially the million dollar vacays to every exotic location where Air Force One can fly.

This is a quibble, but I have a female relative who was named for her father. It is one of those unisex names, like Leslie (it’s not actually Leslie). I will admit, Stanley is a pretty bad name for a girl. He should have given it to her as a middle name, that would have been much better.

I hope someone puts Ex-lax into the dessert.

Male or female?

I know it's a pile of gossip, but let's get all the details!

This marriage was never real. The only question is whether she ever thought it was.

I'd imagine it is very much a marriage of convenience.

Though even being in a partnership with a complete narcissist (as O is) probably would be very trying and she seems predispositioned towards unhappiness anyway. It is probably a very toxic combination.

If there is any fighting, my guess is, it's all her. He seems very passive aggressive and probably never raises his voice, he just knows the buttons to push.

Wow.

I don’t ordinarily say this, but the linked article has an amazing photo of the Obamas, with Mrs. Obama yelling, about what I don’t know.

All I can say is, I had never seen that look on her face before.

Recommended link.

Oprah has described the estate as a place where she and guests sit on the porch sipping guava cocktails, and ride horses to the top of the mountain to watch the sun go down.

Gonna need some BIG horses for those two to ride.

If Obama can't spend TAXPAYER DOLLARS on a party and has to spend HIS OWN MONEY --- guess what happens? ROFL!

The word in Chicago around the 2008 election was that unless Barry ran, Michelle was planning on divorcing him anyway.

I think we all know what's gonna happen within a few years of Obama finally leaving office: they'll "quietly" divorce.

You can see the signs of it coming: separate vacations, not travelling together, etc..

I honestly do not know one lovable liberal. They are remote unhappy people who are not capable of showing genuine love. This is why they have these compassionate ideals, it makes them appear to be caring.

Wake up honey... He lies to everyone including you! Or did you think he only lied to "the little people?" Maybe what upset wookie is not that he was fooling around - but who or what (gender, race, species) he was fooling around with.

But hey, I understand bammy somewhat too. I wouldn't want to put up with wookie. I wouldn't want to "come home" to that (if ya know what I mean) every night either... She does not impress me as a particularly loving/giving person.

Wow, just read the whole thing. Nothing new for me — though I’m a bit weirded by Obama parading his erection to photographers on the plane. Never saw that before. He seems to be looking down at it, then spreading his legs to display it a few times. Reporters snapping away. What kind of weirdo would do that?

“EXAMINER tabloids were full of claims of “divorce” rumors”...

as well as some woman who was rumored to have gotten pregnant by GW, that ultimately Larry Flint and some others never revealed. I think Gloria Alread was also sniffing around but never found anything substantial.
