Michelle Obama 'raged against Rahm Emmanuel and White House advisors'
The Telegraph ^ | 1-7-12 | Raf Sanchez

Posted on 01/07/2012 12:19:24 PM PST by afraidfortherepublic

The First Lady reportedly believed that Mr Emmanuel's willingness to cut backroom deals during the battle over health care reform was tainting Barack Obama's image as a new kind of American leader.

The Obamas paints a picture of a presidential inner circle divided between Mrs Obama's idealistic belief in what the administration could achieve and the grittier pragmatism of Mr Emmanuel.

The book, written by New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor, claims that the chief of staff refused to allow the president's wife into high-level morning meetings, leading a brooding Mrs Obama to berate other senior advisers by email.

She allegedly sent furious notes to Alyssa Mastromonaco, the president's director of scheduling, and to Valerie Jarrett, a Chicago friend who now serves as one President Obama's top advisors.

Ms Jarrett was said to remove the First Lady's name before circulating the emails widely within the West Wing.

The then-press secretary Robert Gibbs was apparently often dispatched to placate Mrs Obama when limits were put on the amount she could spend on clothes or White House redecoration, as well as to explain why she could not take private holiday while on state visits.

Pooh.
He's not an American, and he's certainly NOT a leader... and these sorts of shenanigans are the only things he knows.

If the GOP had any testicles they’d go after the crazy, pricey, tax payer funded vacations. Template: Moochelle’s spending is out of control and O is too weak to control her. And if he can’t even control his wife’s spending, how is he going to restrain gov’t spending.

Middle finger on his right hand is gone —once claimed he’d lost it in a TANK BATTLE in the Negev while serving in the IDF.

Truth is, he had a summer job at Arby’s once, and he cut it off in a meat slicer.

I’m serious.

She could not take private holiday on state visits? Really?

What about her trip to Spain, in which she took a whole planeload of friends and hangers-on with her, and they rented out half of a resort hotel? That was officially a state visit by the First Lady, but somehow I get the feeling it was more of a vacation for her.

And I’m still waiting for the hound dogs in the MSM to dig into who paid for that whole planeload of people who went with Michelle to Spain.

The DNCmedia is too busy trying to find out if Santorum got into a fight during recess in the third grade to worry about hussein and his band of thieves.

Is that considered a disability for the foul-mouthed Rahm?

I haven’t seen this wig yet.

As the elevator car left our floor,
Poor old Moose caught her hair in the door;
..She yelled a great deal
..But had it been real,
She’d have bellowed considerably more.

You posted the stark truth of it
“was tainting Barack Obama’s image as a new kind of American leader.
Pooh.

I just need to add she is a big time shady dealer herself so she would’t even know what ‘ taint” was.

I just will never understand the media love for the vile POS 0dumbo and his America hating bitch moochelle

Yep, sounds like the kind of woman who marries a narcissist. She lives through him and his accomplishments, pushes for him to be bigger, and for those around him to honor him more. She takes personally any rejection of him, because after all her worth is gained through the narcissist’s success. So she pushes him, seeing people who aren’t looking out for his best interests around each corner. She gains her status & prestige by her association with him, yet at the same time wants to be seen as successful separate from him.

How bout those reports of all the pictures just everywhere of BO in the WEst Wing, like he’s some kind of dictator. Ed Shultz said it was kind of weird. Those 2 are seriously insecure and feel the need to force people to pretend like they worship them and tell them how wonderful they are all the time. This is why he won’t make money like Clinton did when he leaves. People just don’t like them, but that fact is well-hidden right now.

When the truth comes out its going to be ugly as sin. I believe she has had a large hand in much that Obama has done. The truth will leak in time. The worst thing that could happen to Obama is to win a second term.

All indications point toward the need for White House staff to bolt down all lamps on the premises, assuming any have survived to this date.
