'Barack and Michelle' tells story behind domestic tension that nearly ruined the Obamas' marriage -- (Double Barf Alert)
There was something different about the screams this time. They were more piercing, more frantic and insistent. As usual, it was Michelle who climbed out of bed first and made her way to Sasha's room while Daddy stayed in bed, hoping his 3-month-old daughter would quickly be lulled back to sleep.
The baby would not be consoled. Barack finally threw back the covers and plodded down the hall. "Jeez, Michelle," he asked, "can't you get her to stop?" Michelle, who gently cradled Sasha, shot her husband a withering glance.
It was a look he had grown accustomed to since the birth of their first daughter, Malia, in 1998. Michelle, like so many other working mothers, was the one expected to bear most of the parenting burden that only intensified with the birth of Sasha.
A nagging concern she wasn't afraid to share with him directly - and repeatedly - was that he seemed willing to put politics ahead of the family.
"You only think about yourself," she would say to him again and again in a tone dripping with disdain. "I never thought I'd have to raise a family alone." Barack, convinced that whatever time he devoted to his career would ultimately benefit his wife and daughter, shrugged off the criticism.
"Barack just doesn't seem to care what I think," a frustrated Michelle complained to her mother, Marian Robinson. "He can be so selfish - and I just can't get through to him that we're supposed to be in this together."
At one point, she went so far as to question whether, after eight years of marriage, their days as a couple were numbered.

playing the sympathy card seemed to work for the clintons. the mindless masses love drivel like this.
What a troglodyte. I spent plenty of nights with my kids. Changed my share of diapers. Didn’t resent it either.
Don’t tell me what happens. I’m dying to read it.
This can’t be serious...
Gee whiz. Babies yell. Who’d a thunk it.
Morons. If you don’t want to deal with screaming babies don’t have kids.
LQ, who gives new parents earplugs as a joke as part of their gift LOL
Domestic Bliss Ping
I know I’d get mad at my husband right before he became...the most powerful man in the world! ‘Cause he wouldn’t have time to tuck in the kids anymore (boo-hoo).
Michelle Obama described as a “working mother”?????
Didn’t she have a politically connected “make work” position at some local hospital that paid her $300K annually?
“Gee Michelle, we can’t let the Ayers babysit them anymore!”
“I think its Bernadine and Bill always running around and filling their house up with the smell of burning flags and copies of the Constitution.”
Two evil people live evil lives... what else does one want to know?
I’m sorry, I just don’t give a f**k. ... So what’s going on with ACORN ??
Why are you bothering me with this crap while I’m busy changing the world?’”
Crybabies! Babies cry, get over it.
I guess they hired Harold or Kumar to write this bad Lifetime Channel screenplay.
Let me guess, they hug and look lovingly at the girls at the end.
Is this for real?
‘withering glance’ hahaha. I’ve seen her withering glance. It’s a wonder he has any manhood left. Wait, he doesn’t...
