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

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

Don’t be silly. Black racists can’t be racists. Didn;t you go to college? (Sarcasm)

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

Remember this from Campaign 2008”

“Whitey” somehow became “Why’d he”

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.
