Skip to comments.Michelle Obama 'raged against Rahm Emmanuel and White House advisors'
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.

Just can’t wait for these people to be gone.
You know you’re street cheap when you make Rahm look good.

Just another day of whitey bringin’ her down.
And I thought my wife was a pain lol. My wife is a saint compared to this monster. I bet Zero wishes he’d chosen a better beard to hide his “alternative lifestyle”.
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.
And they called Sarah Palin a diva...
Yeah, the way Alois Schickelgruber was a new kind of Teutonic leader.

The likeness is hysterical! Thanks for the laugh!
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.
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.
