Skip to comments.Michelle Obama: No tension with husband's aides (People paint me as "some angry black woman")
Posted on 01/11/2012 5:24:26 AM PST by maggief
Michelle Obama said depictions of friction in a new book, "The Obamas," between her and former top aides to her husband, President Obama, aren't true.
In a wide-ranging interview with "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King, the first lady also said that some have tried to portray her as an "angry black woman" since Mr. Obama first announced he was seeking the presidency.
" ... I guess it's more interesting to imagine this conflicted situation here and a strong woman and-- you know? But that's been an image that people have tried to paint of me since the day Barack announced, that I'm some angry black woman."
"The Obamas," written by New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor, reports that there was tension with former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanual and with former presidential Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.
But Mrs. Obama told King that simply wasn't so.
"Rahm is -- and Amy, his wife, are some of our dearest friends," Mrs. Obama says. "Rahm and I have never had a cross word. He's a funny guy."

at the end of the day, it’s always about race with the Obama’s.
she just painted herself as one and she is right for the first time.
EVERYONE has fought with Rahm!! Whata LIAR!
Michelle “This is the first time I’ve been proud of my country” Obama - is - an angry woman, and a charlatan.
Please consider buying this book.
hmmmm, woman+anger+black......yeah I’d say angry black woman is fair Michelle.
Yeah! Like she was going to go on national TV and admit that everything said in the book was true.
Come on, you silly people. She is a loving wife and mother who enjoys baking cookies, reading bedtime stories to her daughters and has never had a harsh word to say to anyone. Move on now, there’s nothing to see here...
The picture that always sticks in my mind is where she and hubby are sitting at a table, her in a gold shirt (I think) and him with a black mao jacket or shirt...both with VACANT faces.
“The lady doth protest too much, methinks.”
She transends race!
“All that for a Flag”
It may not be a Kenyan flag, but its our flag, FUMO.
No, I disagree, that's not quite what they're saying at all. In the words of (attorney) Eddie Murphy on SNL:
"I can sum this up in three words your honor...'She ugly bich'."
Maybe she has tension because of her husband “having aids”?
C-BS loves to give them free air time.
Just the tip of the iceberg -
You only get to play the white guilt card once. Whitey got
As far as the girls....Do you really think that daddy and his "If you want to kill your baby, it's okay with me"...is something every daughter wants to hear?? How do they live with themselves? When is he going to have a gay party for his girls??
These people have NO values...none..."0". It's all about money and power.....black power.
What else could she say? No way she’s gonna agree with Kantor.
that was a classic South Park episode
Reminds me of the things we heard about Hillary. Though I don’t remember hillary bringing race into it.
Yeah Moochelle in that first photo putting on her best “Poor little ole me” hurt-feelings look.
Moochelle: “When I rule the world, White people will have to kiss my ass and serve me lobster every day. They will work and sweat, and bust their white asses to pay for Airforce one to cart my ass all over the world on vacations. “
Speaking of “angry black woman”, “HE GOT WEED, HE GOT WEED!”
Maybe it was when the Princeton-and-Harvard-educated MO told us she'd never been proud of her country before that we got that impression.
strange, why would she bring her colour into it?
Is there a stereotype she knows about?
These people have done more to destroy relations between the races than anyone I have seen in my lifetime. They came along at a time where we had pretty much forgot the stupidity of human demarcation by skin color and made it an issue. They made it an issue so they could use skin color as a wedge to gain political power and by that make money. Make no mistake about this. It is not about black or brown or yellow or white. It is about green. Green money.
The thievery of these people knows no bounds. This is followed closely by their lack of class and a glaring blindness to American Christian values.
Kings, queens, dictators, masters.... We are not supposed to have them in America. Our presidents are our servants. Not our taskmasters and certainly not our rulers. The Obamas are not angry, they are hateful and looking for payback for injustices they imagine. The country gave them an opportunity to take the racial healing that had come so far and bring all colors together. Instead the worse possible thing they could have done they did. Instead of using love to unite America as one race they used their hate to poison the country. For money.
God may have mercy on their souls for their despicable actions. The American voters will not. Obama will never be re-elected. Americans see the hate in the current administration. The poison. A poison that we cannot live with much longer.
You nailed it!
Until now ...
That’s right-—make sure you play the race card, you ugly, ignorant cow.
God bless our Moms.
Around the age of five I remember my Mom told me to wipe that scowl off my face or it would become permanent. Poor Michelle never got the message.
Moms are always right.
And people portray Tom Cruise as being as crazy as an outhouse rat. Go figure.
For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country, she told a Milwaukee crowd today...
Nothing angry there...
To be fair, I believe that if you are a black person in the US, our general culture forces you to be aware of your color, while a white person can live most of his life without thinking about it hardly at all.
The mere existence of things like BET, Negro College Fund, NAACP, Black Caucus, etc. tend to do that to you. They are all race centric.
If we had white equivalents, I think whites would, just as blacks do today, be more aware of their skin color, as opposed to just their species.

From Moochelle’s senior thesis at Princeton:
“My experiences at Princeton have made me far more aware of my ‘blackness’ than ever before,” the future Mrs. Obama wrote in her thesis introduction. “I have found that at Princeton, no matter how liberal and open-minded some of my white professors and classmates try to be toward me, I sometimes feel like a visitor on campus; as if I really don’t belong. Regardless of the circumstances underwhich I interact with whites at Princeton, it often seems as if, to them, I will always be black first and a student second.”
Black first, angry second, entitlement queen third, and American down somewhere around 8th or 9th.
I teach boxing and used to do it and now my son fights.
We went to a black college last year and the racism towards us was sickening , even the guys from our gym whom were black were disgusted.
Black kids are taught from an early age off the left that they were used as slaves, they and their rights taken away etc etc.
After talking to a few of these black kids at the gym and after hearing what they are told then I too would be angry if I were black.
Was it not cloward and piven who wanted to keep blacks angry so they could use them in their protests?
When I hear the code words like diversity , comments like “there is not a lot of diversity here”
I say right away “why do you persist in colour, why do you have to notice colour, can you not just look at people as people?”
Or”I had not noticed I only look at people as people not by their colour”
“the shows are full of drama queens, girlie men and a few hours plugging the liberal agenda.”
Girlie men — you nailed it. The men adopt a chatty, feminine persona (e.g., Harry Smith, who I’m convinced is a woman), which goes hand-in-hand with ultra-liberal, or else they act like 6th grade pre-pubescent gossipy boys (Stephanopolos).
NPR follows suit, where only the women have low voices, or they have a snarky, self-superior tone (e.g., Scott Simon), or the sing-song tones of the idiotic liberal-activist “science” guy, Ira Flatow.
That’s the picture. Wish 100,000 of us would send the Obama’s a copy. That’s who they really are!
