No ifs or buts, Michelle Obama anticipates life as 'mom-in-chief'

WASHINGTON (AFP) - Michelle Obama says her overriding role will be to serve as "mom-in-chief" to her and her husband Barack's two young daughters when -- not if -- they enter the White House. ADVERTISEMENT

Beyond that, the driven lawyer hoping to be the inaugural black first lady says she intends to restore a work-life balance to hard-pressed Americans and to support military wives of husbands serving extended tours overseas.

Interviewed by Ebony magazine, Michelle Obama was in no doubt about life after the November election when voters will decide between her husband and Republican John McCain.

"My first job in all honesty is going to continue to be mom-in-chief," she said, "making sure that in this transition, which will be even more of a transition for the girls... that they are settled and that they know they will continue to be the center of our universe."

Malia Obama, 10, and her sister Sasha, seven, are being brought up with the help of Michelle's mother as their parents campaign. They would be the youngest residents of the White House since president Jimmy Carter's daughter Amy.

Michelle Obama's certainty of tone could rile some on the right and foster charges by the Republican Party -- which has set up a website called "Audacity Watch" -- that her husband is arrogantly assuming the election is won already.

Obama, who is a style icon for her admirers and a lightning rod for conservative critics who question her patriotism, said she embraced the challenge of answering any concerns felt by voters.

“Supreme Court appointments are on the table. The fate and the direction of this country for the next four or eight years is on the table...”

She provided a great reason NOT to vote for her husband.

"Barack and I -- as partners, as friends and as lovers -- we accessorize each other in many ways," Obama added.

Lovers? ... Oookaay ... That just about maxes out the ol' CreepyMeter.

Their arrogant attitudes display the improper spirit associated with that office and nobody deserves it less than they do.

Yes He does, but are you saying that prayer is not an effective addition to combating those who would destroy all that is good and just? Should I simply not pray?

OK. Why did you see fit to attend an America hating, Jew hating, white hating racist church for 20 years, and drag your 2 innocent CHILDREN to that same church, children that YOU as a MOTHER are supposed to be protecting from the evil and filth of this world? Answer that, bwitch.

Not at all.

I'm just of the opinion that this time around it will require action as well in order to protect and preserve our way of life.

Prayers alone didn't stop Hitler.

Seen this?

Photographic proof that Obama thinks he's already President

Take a look at the throne that Obama has installed on his plane, and then notice the embroidery on is chair.


Obama's Throne

Now look closely at the throne, and notice it does not say "For President", but "President".

The Obamessiah’s Traveling Throne

"we accessorize each other in many ways"

"ACCESSORIZE"????!!!!????

OK, we knew that Obambi is the ultimate celebutante, but I swear that I never could have imagined a wannabe "First Lady" talking about how she and her Obamessiah "accessorize" each other..... I want to see the list of fashion designers who are helping Obambi and the missus to "acessorize" each other and not merely their clothing.........

She said she intends to restore a work-life balance to hard-pressed Americans.

Mrs. Hussein-Obama I am a hard working American I do not need your help or any gov’ts help to balance work-life> I can make my own decisions. The gov’t is there only to protect and serve us not to rule our lives. So now that you know that you and Mr. Hussein-Obama are not needed to run my family's life I'm sure you will withdraw from the race.

Oh I must be mentally challenged you do not care if I want your help you simply believe I and other middle-class Americans do not have the ability to run our lives. But I remember an old song that has a line that goes like “he can't even run his own life I'll be damned if he will run mine. So please go back to your nanny state of Chicago and leave the rest of America alone. We do not need you.
