Michelle Obama wants to escape the bubble, go to CVS
politico44 ^ | 10/10/12 | BYRON TAU

Posted on 10/10/2012 10:08:35 AM PDT by ColdOne

The toughest part of the job for first lady Michelle Obama? Not being able to stroll around her local drugstore.

In an interview with NBC's iVillage, the first lady said she sometimes chafes at the bubble of the White House.

“I can’t walk outside. I can’t take my dog for a walk," the first lady said.

Acknowledging that most Americans face much more hardship and difficulty than she does, she said she nevertheless sometimes regrets the "loss of privacy" and "loss of anonymity."

"I tease, it’s like one day I am going to walk out that gate. I’m just going to walk out. I'm going to walk out. No one's going to know, I’m not going to notify anybody and I’m just going to walk … I’m going to go to CVS," she said.

~~SNIP~~

"Now at CVS you have to get your bag, you have to pay if you want a bag. I heard about that, so it’s like I don’t want to go into CVS all ignorant and be like what’s this … and now I know that you have to pay for a bag which wasn’t the case three and a half years ago so things have changed," she said.

“Purple drank” WILL make you babble like that. It can be embarrassing.

And the American citizens who shop at CVS would like to fly off to Spain on a private jet with the kids, grandma, and a few dozen friends and staff for a long vacation at a luxury resort. The American citizens who shop at CVS would like to fly off in a private 747 to NY City, Chicago or anywhere else with their spouse for a dinner date. The American citizens who shop at CVS would like to fly off to Hawaii for Christmas at a luxury home every year.

Oh, how this nation needs to have that arrogant elitist piece of garbage out of the White House along with her Marxist failure of a husband.

“I tease. It’s like one day I am going to walk out that gate...”

As eloquent as ever, the FLOTUS is slavishly quoted by the Obama press.

Don’t tease us, Mo. We are counting the days.

Let me see if I understand: You’re just going to walk out?

Has the obligatory , irrelevant “ like” in the sentence. What does “ so it’s like”

Like her husband..... 0

Wait until November 7th, go and no one will give a fat rat's ass.

Afterwards just keep walking all the way to your paid for 35 million dollar estate in Hawaii. BTW call us when you make it as I am certain that you just like your 'husband' can also walk on water.

Didn't the media pounce all over Bush because he was fascinated by those new-fangled scanners? Bet they don't say a word about Michelle amazed they are charging for plastic bags. But, really, why is she amazed - it is the Liberals who want to charge for the bags to clean up the environment. She should be thrilled to pay more for the government mandated regulations.

All baldfaced frigging lies. There is not one word of actual truth that comes out of the mouths of people who live in that house, nor who work in the upper levels of our government.

We’ll know. We’ll be tuned-in to FOX News, and as we stand and cheer while we watch the Romneys walking in, we’ll know that just prior to that you finally did walk out.

Hey Michelle, There’s the door, take a hike.
Nothing stopping you from going to the drug store
like any other citizen, heck you could even go
down to the corner and cop just like anyone
in the hood.

Think back, Michelle.

Remember on Inauguration Day when you and that ‘husband’ of yours couldn’t even be civilized enough to see the Former President Bush and his lovely wife, Former First Lady Barbara Bush, leave to fly to their home in Texas, saying you had dinner reservations?

Remember? You couldn’t wait three minutes for a dinner reservation about 3 miles away. You left.

There is no amount of plastic surgery, no amount of liposuction, no amount of freebie designer clothes and jewelry, no amount of $1500 a day applied makeup and wigs that will ever erase or change who you really are.

If you still don’t get it, look at the picture of bitter, angry, seething you with the very elegant, very classy Former First Lady Carla Bruni Sarkozy. THAT is who we know you to be.

"“I can’t walk outside. I can’t take my dog for a walk," the first lady said."

But, she and her posse can travel all over the world on the citizens' dime.

When I saw "bubble" in the headline, I thought this thread would be about her ass...her bubble butt that she seems so fond of, like her arms.

I haven’t been living in The Bubble, but I did not know CVS charges for bags. That must be a liberal area tax scheme.
