Carla Bruni Book: Michelle Obama in 'Hell'
Politico ^ | September 16, 2010 | ANDY BARR & AMIE PARNES

Posted on 09/16/2010 9:36:00 AM PDT by lbryce

Michelle Obama told French first lady Carla Bruni that her life as the first lady of the United States is "hell," according to an account in a new book.

The White House declined to comment on the account, first noted by London’s Daily Mail.

In an authorized biography written by French journalists Michael Darmon and Yves Derai, Bruni recalls that during her March visit to the White House with French President Nicolas Sarkozy, she asked the first lady about her post.

“Don’t ask,” Obama said, according to Bruni. “It’s hell. I can’t stand it.”

The book, "Carla and the Ambitious," is due out Friday and was written, in part, as a competitor to an unauthorized biography.

“Don’t ask,” Obama said, according to Bruni. “It’s hell. I can’t stand it.”

From her responsibilities as the unofficial food Czar to hosting the most glamorous parties imaginable, taking flight on Air Force One to the most exotic, luxurious resorts on Earth, her quote that her life as First Lady is hell, can't stand it, is difficult to comprehend. But at least it explains how, the way she looks.

Poor thing, maybe she just needs another vacation and a new pair of $500.00 shoes.

I think she thinks “WE THE PEOPLE” owe it to her.

Why the surprise? Who would want to be First Lady of a country they weren't proud of?

“It’s hell. I can’t stand it.”

Turnabout is fair play.

Any mention in that book about the “hell” America is in as a result of that beast occupying the sacred halls of the WH?

Report: "“Don’t ask,” Obama said, according to Bruni. “It’s hell. I can’t stand it.”

Response: Yes, it is hell and WE can't stand it either!

She just doesn't want to appear niggardly.

FLOTUS is probably the first (ONLY) position Michelle has ever had where she has to account for herself.

She can’t adjust and is out of HER element.

Moosechelle - it's an HONOR to be First Lady, not hell. The 'good news': We the People will be glad to help you out and make sure that you and Obummer don't have to spend a single minute past 4 years in "hell". PS - quit doing the 'Michelle Antoinette' thingy: let them eat cake greens/arugula/low fat/wheat pasta. We're tired enough of your hubby 'The Professor' lecturing us so when you start up too, it's more than annoying.

I wonder if she was served rock lobster once instead of Maine lobster? For an elitist, that is hell.

A caller to WLS this morning brought up a good point on this subject this morning -

Perhaps this is Obama's way of being only a one term President and not seeking the nomination knowing his ass is toast in two years...

"I have to make a choice... of what is best for my wife and family, or for the country. I have chosen my family at this time, letting my successor continue my Legacy of Change..."

I doubt that Michelle said that because it’s the kind of talk that a public figure and our First Lady especially would not engage in.

Yeh-—nothing can compare to her gig as VP of Community Relations at the Univ of Chicago Hospital making $300+/k.
Now she sacrifices with downgrades of residence and hardships of travel. Slave girl blood suffers the ever- eternal struggle against social injustices.

Maybe staying the next year in Spain would lift her spirits. But imagine her arriving back early to finding Deval Patrick’s wardrobe and makeup kit in the First Bedroom.

Might that be the Don Wade and Roma show? When I lived near there, I used to call in occasionally.

It’s a morphing of photos. The first photo is with the Spainish princess and Bruni, those are the two women on the left. And they are climbing the steps, together on a day when Michelle Obama was not there.

They then took another photo of Michelle climbing those steps, in that dress, on the day she met the Spanish king and queen.

So, yes, she did wear that dress. And yes, the other two ladies and Michelle are morphed into one photo.

What makes that photo stunning, of course, is the size comparison between the women. And THAT has not been altered. They are in correct scale. It’s just made to look that they were all climbing the steps together on the same day.
