BOOK BOMBSHELL: First Lady Says Job "Hell... Can't Stand It"
Daily Mail Online (UK) ^ | September 16, 2010

Posted on 09/15/2010 9:16:01 PM PDT by Southnsoul

Michelle Obama thinks being America’s First Lady is ‘hell’, Carla Bruni reveals today in a wildly indiscreet new book.

Miss Bruni reveals that Mrs Obama replied when asked about her position as the U.S. president’s wife: ‘Don’t ask! It’s hell. I can’t stand it!’

Details of the private conversation, which took place at the White House during an official visit by Nicolas Sarkozy last March, emerged in Carla And The Ambitious, a book written in collaboration with Miss Bruni.

No comments on the article, yet. It’s 5:20 in the morning in the UK. Will be interesting once they awake.

Makes sense...18 months is about the longest either of them has held a real job...guess the bloom is off the rose and the hard work is getting to them.

CAn’t you just imagine the headline? “French Whare insults our sweet 1st Lady”.
Then comes the stories of how she stole her husband away from his previous wife and compare that with sweet Michele standing by her man through thick and thin times.
The scandal her book causes will force her husband to retire to the French countryside.........blah, blah, blah.

Her job is to be perky and positive. Having lived her entire life and not being proud at all of her country for the 40+ years prior to her husband’s success intones that she is not normally perky and positive. It must grate on her. Shame, that.

She gets to be the stay-at-home mom to her kids and has a nice house and a husband who works from home, sort of. She can curtail public appearances to a bare minimum if she wants to. I don’t think Pat Nixon did much in public, did she?

Some people just don’t know how to count their blessings and be happy.

Michelle was TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT and regrets any misunderstanding the French Whore has.

If you think about it, MO has probably had to do more manual labor since she became a WH occupier.

We’ve seen her working in her garden looking very mad. She’s painted some stuff just this past weekend. She served in the soup kitchen. Chased the dog around. She done football camp. All of these things require her to DO WORK.

Now we don’t know how long she did these things. They all could have been photo setups only. But I expect from some of the pics I’ve seen here, she’s tired of working.

“Catty Carla Bruni lifts lid on Michelle Obama’s ‘hellish’ job”

Carla says “Meow” but Michelle says “Woof!”

It’s completely irresponsible for Bruni to disclose private conversations while everyone is still in office. TACKY and potentially dangerous. I don’t care who the President and First Lady is...it’s wrong. The is absolutely no manners and decency anymore. It’s all about money...God has completely left the picture.

I think the responsibility falls on MO. She has a responsibility to display the manners to comes with being a first lady. She does not ‘know’ Bruni and should not confide in her as if she does. Her complaints should be with a good friend or her husband. I don’t think any person of a high position in a company would complain to a client that they just met about how dreadful their job was. It would be bad for business and make the business look bad, right? Well, her complaints do the same.

You can make this about Bruni, but that does not change the subject at hand.

There are two subjects at play here. Why be surprised that MO made a wildly inappropriate comment. That’s what she does. The story here is a sitting first lady revealing private conversations. I think this says so much more about Carla than about Michelle. That’s my opinion. What happens when the two get together again?

There are probably, what, 50 million women of the age that could be married to the President and be First Lady, and we managed to pick the ONE ungrateful harridan who thinks it’s hell.

Despicable low-life scum. Do the country a favor and go back to your make work affirmative action job in Chicago.
