'Mama Kaye' Wilson, godmother to the Obama girls, is a low-profile member of president's inner...
Chicago Tribune ^ | April 3, 2011 | Katherine Skiba and Lolly Bowean

For her long friendship with the Obamas, 65-year-old Kaye Wilson has been lavished with invitations to state dinners, Camp David and trips aboard Air Force One.

But the Olympia Fields woman — "Mama Kaye" to the president and other friends — is one of the least known people in his inner circle and seems to like it that way.

Her ties to the Obama family are many, and in some cases, uniquely hers.

I wonder why we so very rarely hear anything in the press about Obama’s live-in mother-in-law. I had almost forgotten about her before I read this

Shouldn’t Moochelle be worrying about the woman’s weight problem instead of sticking her nose in our business?!

Is there no end to the moochers and hangers-on that this nobama family has gathered in their “posse”? All of this is at taxpayer expense, of course. I guess the nobama’s see this as some sort of retribution or repiration from the “white man”.

What’s interesting to me is that everyone interviewed
in this article belongs to some NGO, Community this,
Community that. Not a business person in the bunch,
all organizers or academics of some stripe.

spoke first of food when talking about Kaye Wilson, judging: "A fantastic cook. You'd want to get some of her apple-peach cobbler." He is with The Emmaus Community, a nondenominational Christian church in Chicago Heights. Others tout her dinner rolls. And when Family Circle magazine asked Michelle Obama for a cookie recipe, she volunteered a shortbread cookie recipe calling for a splash of Amaretto, crediting Kaye Wilson.

Are these wimmen posting FDA calorie counts on all this fat-laden food?

what curdles me is “Mama Kaye” didn’t want to stay in the Lincoln Bedroom afraid of “spilling coffee on the Gettysburg Address”.

what a bunch of chicago crooks,cronies and crack-heads and GRIFTERS

MamaKaye is a Grifter-her boy don’t win 2012-you be sure there will be a book penned by her concerning her repugnance of what she saw & did, i.e., her public confession.

“I wonder why we so very rarely hear anything in the press about Obama’s live-in mother-in-law.”

She threated to put a Santeria curse on the media if they get up in her bidness.

Well, it could be worse. Zero could have invited that Auntie of his, you know...the one who is here illegally...to come live in the WH. Instead, he just made sure she got a better apartment, has a job, and has made it through the legal system and is still on our soil. Remember, when it happened, he proclaimed that if someone commits a crime, they should be punished. Never happened to the Auntie, however.

Conservatives do things, build things, and provide for future generations. Liberals abort their future generation, do as little as possible, and are happiest when denouncing everything conservatives do and have done.

********

Yeah, that would be Aunt Zeituni, the illegal who made a big deal out of her ‘right’ to stay here in the USA. Zero did make sure she got to stay and got her all the other perks.

And now here’s another one, ‘family friend,’ on the plane with the rest of them on ‘vacation.’ Just disgusting, and getting more and more so every week.

My biggest fear is that we will get another four years of this CRAP. Trump is right — the country is going to HELL.

Saw a bumper sticker here in the People’s Republic of Austin this week that cheered me up - Jan 2013 - reclaim America with a Nobama icon. Can’t wait!
