Michelle Obama: "Distressed" about Daley, Madigan, Hynes clout
Chicago Sun-Times ^ | 1/9/12 | Lynn Sweet

Posted on 01/09/2012 1:59:23 PM PST by Nachum

Washington - When Michelle Obama worked in Mayor Daley's City Hall in the early 1990s, she was "distressed" by how a small group of "white Irish Catholic" families -- the Daleys, the Hynes and the Madigans -- "locked up" power in Illinois. And as she prepared to become first lady, Mrs. Obama naively wanted to delay a move into the White House for six months, so her daughters could finish the school year. Her initial thought was to "commute" to the White House from her South Side home. And Marty Nesbitt, one of President Obama's best friends, had been recruited to run for Chicago

I’m sure she would have been equally concerned if a bunch of black muslims were running Chicago.

I remember that well.

If the tape/video of her racist rant didn’t exist, then why did they need a cover story of what she said- Why’d he instead of Whitey.

And where is that tape. People said they actually heard it. Where is it?

“No…what I will say is that those are two of the three tactics we are engaging in against Barack Obama’s re-election – continuing to push Eric Holder out of the DOJ, securing a primary challenger, and the other thing…it relates to a staffing issue. The loss of a critical member of the Obama staff. A resignation that will further the growing perception that the Obama White House is a place of internal disarray– which it absolutely is. And this event will also be a signal to those in the Democratic Party that Barack Obama’s re-election is not in their best future interests.” - WHITE HOUSE INSIDER: August 2011

Would Moochelle feel any better if Chi-Town was run by the likes of Nelson Mandela, Idi Amin, Robert Mugabe and Jean-Bédel Bokassa? I thought race didn't matter to them. B-P Right.......

Come to think of it, there are places in Africa that have a lower life expectancy than people had during the Middle Ages or even in the days of cavemen, and here we are in the 21st Century.

The racist attitude of the Obamas, specifically Michelle, has always been clear. As we suspected, the woman also is a very difficult person...wanting things her way all the time. From the article (and the book):

Camille Johnston, Mrs. Obama's former communications chief, told the Sun-Times, "We had some disagreements over how certain things would be handled, but in the end we all got back to the place Mrs. Obama had set at the onset...

That seems to be a nice way Camille Johnson announced to the world that Michelle doesn't budge and people have to do as she says.

She also fails to understand that the “White Irish Catholics” have had a firmly entrenched power base, and political control, since long before the Northern Migration of Blacks to the Industrial North. I believe that started in the Thirties, and really reached it’s peak in the Forties.

When Michelle Obama worked in Mayor Daley's City Hall in the early 1990s, she was "distressed" by how a small group of "white Irish Catholic" families -- the Daleys, the Hynes and the Madigans -- "locked up" power in Illinois.

~~~~~~

Imagine the chutzpah, the brazen hubris of actually being an aide to Daley, along with her also hate-filled mentor Valerie, kissing up to his Chicago Way network to get up thru the ranks to a plush $300K/yr 'gift' hospital political position as a result of that incestuous system.

And, obviously, as well her pathetic husband, who without the aid of this embedded Chicago/Illinois patronage system network could've NEVER risen above a mildly successful mid-level local societal figure .. .. and she's EVER MORE AND STILL a selfish, greedy, opportunistic, partisan, ungrateful, bigoted, arrogant, two-faced, backstabbing, racist witch.... all this group of evil, rotten cretins are. DAMN THEM all! It's the poisonous, totally corrupt and immoral, vote pandering snakepit of the Chicago Way.

UPDATE Vice President Joe Biden, Jill Biden and Mrs. Obama flew to Chicago for the Maggie Daley funeral.

Seems like Bill Daley learns of MO's reported bigoted nastiness and boom: he resigns today as BHO's chief of staff.

My speculation about Bill Daley’s resignation may be wrong.
Apparently, the day after BHO returned from his luxurious, taxpayer supported paradise vacation, BD handed him the resignation note, which was just made PUBLIC today. Still,
he’s so ‘connected,’ he could’ve learned or maybe had on-the-job exposure to MO’s bigoted comments in that previous time period.

Hawaii spy ...

The power of prayer: First lady Michelle Obama, who is most thankful the tax cut brouhaha was resolved so her hubby could join her in Hawaii on Christmas vacation, used prayer power to get him there.

Quoth Mrs. Obama: “We were all praying and praying and asking Santa and the tooth fairy and every fairy they could think of,” she said during a phone call with a child anxious to know how close Santa was to the child’s house.

Wish I could find the link but a couple of years ago I read that Moochelle left a big bundler and his family waiting a long time and then wouldn't even shake his hand when he extended it to her. Supposedly, she was overheard by bundler and his family making snarky comments about ‘sweaty whites’ just prior to meeting the family. Apparently, she and her entourage were absolutely cackling over racist comments.
