Michelle Obama misses life without scrutiny

But she says White House life is ‘greatest single benefit’ for her family

"It's a lot easier to live your life when everything you do doesn't have a consequence," first lady Michelle Obama told Time magazine. May 21, 2009

WASHINGTON - First lady Michelle Obama misses life without the constant commentary, but says she does what works for her since there's always someone who thinks she could have done something better.

In the latest issue of Time magazine, Mrs. Obama says it's difficult to watch President Barack Obama burdened by the world's problems, and that White House life has been the "greatest single benefit" for her family.

She also revealed the most unexpected bit of advice from her predecessors: go to Camp David early and often.

"It's just one place you can go where you're completely ... where you feel some level of freedom and an ability to breathe," she said of the presidential retreat in Maryland, in an interview for the magazine's cover story. "I think every single first lady felt that that was an important resource, an important thing for the health of the family."

...where you feel some level of freedom and an ability to breathe...

Unlike the rest of the nation which is suffering horribly under suffocating tyranny of Obamunism. I feel we are going to lose our ability to breath very soon now with her cretin husband in the WH.

“It’s a lot easier to live your life when everything you do doesn’t have a consequence”

You mean when she could throw on any old dress and the media wouldn’t salivate over what a fashion icon she is? Yeah, scrutiny’s tough.

This arrogant eedjit doesn't realize that everything that everyone does has consequences. We are all in this together. I guess she thought it would be easy.

Well, if you could talk your liberal media lackeys into stop telling us that you’re a good looking sasquatch, we would stop scrutinizing as well.

Sasquatches everywhere are gonna find you and beat you with Nerf bats for comparing them to The First Crackwhore.

p.s. Oh yeah, and I hope her kidneys fail. DAMN, I'm funny. And I'm not even an 8th-rate angry feminist quasi-comedienne who happens to be famous only for being a lesbo.

Yes, it’s harder to lie, cheat, steal and be a black racist and traitor when the media spotlight is on you.

Maybe they should move back to Chicago.

OK with me.

What a liar.

She spends her entire day coordinating her public relations team for Hollywood, and the NY/DC press.

Pure propaganda.

She can forget about that. Their privacy is going to be gone for long after they leave the WH. That train left the station.

You probably wont lose your ability to breathe, but you will be taxed for it.

What an astounding admission of innate immorality. Even more, I'll bet she didn't even notice she'd said it - or care if she did.

I think it's interesting that she didn't say public consequence. That distinction would be patently obvious to anyone coming from the private sector such as herself, and it could indicate that she doesn't understand or maybe even recognize rights and freedoms as belonging to individuals...and that could be a consequence of someone who was constantly exposed to an entitlement ideologoy.

Maybe...maybe not. Just a thought.

Its interesting that she has apparently had this type of life at some point.
