FLOTUS: It's hard to get mad at Barack
politico ^ | 9/2/12 | BYRON TAU

Posted on 09/02/2012 12:08:46 PM PDT by ColdOne

First lady Michelle Obama said in an interview that she finds it hard to get angry with her hard-working husband.

"This last three and a half years, it’s been hard to be really furious at him, because he’s working so hard and doing it at great personal sacrifice, but he’s still managing to be the father and husband he was before. So I have a harder time taking [issue with] his little foibles, whether it’s leaving his shoes out or not," Michelle Obama said in an interview with Parade magazine published Sunday.

"We have people [here] who pick them up. [Otherwise] they’d still be there," she said about Obama's shoes.

The first lady admitted that there were still things that bothered her, like being forced to wait for her husband.

"Little things, like, I’m waiting for him today for 30 minutes, ’cause I’m always waiting for him. He comes down and he’s, “All right, let’s go!” And it’s like, “Oh, so now you’re in a rush?” she said.

President Obama seconded her, saying "She’s more punctual than I am."

Little Barry “Me Too, Me Too” is now trying to say what a wonderful family man he is after Romney's story, hence all of these types of stories popping up like weeds all of a sudden.

By all accounts, he is the laziest POTUS in known memory. Up late morning, to bed early, takes long vacations, puts all the decisions off on his (unqualified) staff.

This article says more about her than him. For instance, she won't pick-up the shoes of a hard working man? Obviously she is not a team player. When I am putting in long hours, my wife caters to me. When my wife has had a hard day, I may draw her a nice hot bubble bath (complete with a flower in a vase, a glass of wine, and some chocolate resting on the side of the tube). Putting shoes away? We both do it for the other.

It is amazing how little things like that, keeps you focused on the other and minimizes the friction of daily life.

Yeah, still managing to be the liar and loser he was before. Where's the barf alert?

Working hard playing golf, signing executive orders, leaking classified info to the press and Hollywood, vacationing, campaigning, blah, blah, blah!

Must have been ‘upstairs’ working out with Reggie Love, or smoking crack.

So... [they] have to correct Michelle’s [otherwise] atrocious grammar when quoting her ?

"And so LIKE"...."LIKE" ...."it's LIKE"

You would think that a person who graduated from a prestious college could speak better!

I have prayed everyday since these grifters/commies have been in our house that the people will vote them out, but I am really nervous about the number of ignorant, stupid and gimmie voters.

So I have a harder time taking [issue with] his little foibles, whether it’s leaving his shoes out or not,"

Well, Moochelle, I have a bigger problem with him putting his feet and shoes ON the White House and Oval Office furniture. He has absolutely no respect for the office he holds. He mocks us at every turn. I am a Christian but am finding it harder and harder to follow Christ's admonition to love your enemy.

Notice the headline says "mad" but Michelle says "really furious."

Furious is such a strong word. How often do you get furious with a spouse that you are in a loving relationship with???

Mad or annoyed? Yes, maybe occasionally, but furious?

I can't picture the two of them in a room together without her being furious at him. I picture them living completely apart.

On the other hand, I'm "really furious" at jug-ears myself.

Funny. I recently read The Amateur by Edward Stein. According to the book, Mooch pretty much stays mad at him. Stein says it’s a crime the way the media has fallen over itself to portray the Obama marriage as a good one, when, in fact, it is anything but.

Plus, as pathological liars, they live in opposite-ville. If she says she’s not “furious” at him, then she’s definitely “furious” at him.

Very, very good catch. I used to listen to Laura Ingrahm radio show. She mentioned how often Michelle talks him down in public. That is when I first noticed how Michelle does this to him a lot.

You can almost understand why he may be gay. That kind of woman could turn a man gay. At the very least, adulterous or impotent.

Foibles??!! Someone must have told her that word would ring well with white ‘folk’.

And you know dang well they both insist on being waited on hand and foot. I wouldn’t be surprised if they both have dressers and wipers as well as someone to pick up their shoes.

My gawd, how many of these fluff puff pieces are we going have to endure...

Barack the family man, Barack the hard working guy, Barack loving father, Barack typical man leaving his shoes, Barack no social life...

Blah, blah, blah...

How about Barack growing the economy, Barack helping small business, Barack cutting the deficit...
