Skip to comments.Michelle Obama: 'I rarely step foot in the West Wing'
Posted on 10/08/2012 9:41:32 AM PDT by ColdOne
"I rarely walk in that office because the truth is he's got so many wonderful advisers. He's got a phenomenal cabinet. He's got people who are in the trenches on these issues every single day and I'm kind of stepping in and out and I've got my own set of issues," she said. "So I don't even have the kind of expertise and the time in to be able to provide the kind of advice and guidance that he's already getting."
"In the end, Barack, our family is priority for him, and I knew that if I said no he wouldn't do this," she said. "And then I had to think of whether I would want to be responsible for not having somebody like Barack you know, someone with his level of intellect, his honesty, his compassion, his vision. Would I want to be the one who stood in the way of this person potentially running this country? And I couldn't do that, because then I had to think beyond myself and my family and I had to think of sort of the broader benefits that this country could gain from his leadership."

That just might be the best caption ever on FR!
“and I’ve got my own set of issues”
Can’t believe this one hasn’t been touched yet, unless Captain Obvious is taking Columbus Day off.
she was talking about this phenomenal cabinet. Kinda like the chair.
What a liar. Edward Klein writes that Moochie is always poppin’ in on Bam and for no reason. and he sits there in his shorts, bouncing a basketball and watching ESPN. These two are the biggest frauds in history. Aunt Edna was going to file for divorce until she realized that she could have a free ride on the taxpayer dime. Those trips and outfits from France are expensive.
It is a crying shame that I'm not black. Because if I were, I could say "N-word, Please!".....
Good! It is going to take a long time to get his stink outta there, let alone hers too.
“I knew that if I said no he wouldn’t do this”
SAY IT!!!! (Sam Kennison voice) :)
She doesn’t need to “step foot” into the West Wing; Valerie Jarret - Michele’s alter ego in the West Wing, is always and only a phone call away.
The expression in English is set foot not step foot.
That’s racist, you Anglo-centric bigot.
You can use both.

No, one either steps or sets foot. On does not "step" one's foot.
It is an error born of illiteracy. People hear the words incorrectly and if they don't read very much they don't catch the error. Somebody likened it to saying, "for all intensive purposes".
Only if you’re willing to be wrong :).
An alternate accepted usage gets that way because large enough numbers of people make the error until it becomes normal. Foe example, the expression, “under weigh” is also, (but erroneously) spelled “under way”. The correct spelling is related to the expression “to weigh anchor”; the other spelling became accepted due to large numbers of erroneous usages.
It’s all trivial, I agree but a woman who has unnecessarily involved herself with the nations schools at least ought to know the language
First Wookie can really pile it on. Too bad it stinks, Michelle...
I could look at that picture a thousand times and still laugh every time.
Looks like Romney ruined her anniversary...actually, First Wookie, it was your husband's gift.
Why does she stand so unladylike. Looks like a wrestler about to try and take Mitt down.
Run, Mitt, she's got the stink eye on you!
There she is...stealing from kids’ lunches.

HA, HA, HA!
