White House denies Mrs. Obama's 'hell' comment
washingtonpost.com/The Associated Press ^ | Thursday, September 16, 2010; 1:10 PM | washingtonpost.com/The Associated Press

WASHINGTON -- The White House is denying that first lady Michelle Obama ever described her White House life as "hell."

Mrs. Obama's spokeswoman, Katie McCormick Lelyveld, responded Thursday to a purported comment attributed to Mrs. Obama in a forthcoming book, "Carla and the Ambitious," about French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. The book says Bruni-Sarkozy recalled that during a recent White House visit with her husband, the French president, she asked Mrs. Obama about her new role. According to the book, Mrs. Obama replied: "It's hell. I can't stand it."

You can tell she didn’t say it. Look at how happy and cheerful she always is.

Rush just nailed this. The comment fits with Muchelle’s attitude, arrogance, and dislike of this country.

LOL.

Maybe that’s why all the Bummer family vacations, because Michelle is bored stiff of the White House and all the diplomacy involved.

Mrs. Obama replied: “It’s hell. I can’t stand it.”

Isn’t that odd, Michelle, we feel the same about you. Anytime you wanna leave, pleeeeeeeese feel free and take the Candy Man with you.

Her expressions tell the tale. She’s miserable. But, I have a feeling she is nearly always miserable. Except maybe when she stuffing her face with ice cream, lobster and Kobe beef.

Michelle said it and don’t let the media tell you any different.

Since Obama’s poll numbers have been sinking like a stone I bet she hates it even more.

Now I’d even be willing to bet that they wish they had never won especially in light of the current circumstances.

The democrat commies have brought this on themselves and have nobody to blame but themselves.

Even this is something they cannot blame on Bush.

According to the book, Mrs. Obama replied: "It's hell. I can't stand it."

This is a simple language problem. The actual question was. "How is sex with Barry in the White House?"

Michelle does not like being FLOTUS because she can't “M’o-F’o” anyone! Too many eyes and ears around to tattle. She has to mind her manners... such as they are

It is hard pretending to be refined when you have an 800 Lb. chip on your shoulder!!

I think miserable comes naturally for her. Some people are just plain miserable no matter who they are, where they are or what they’re doing. When she does smile, it appears phony. I feel sorry for the children. This can’t be a very happy household.

Me too and here is proof as if we don't KNOW they are lying. Notice the date of this article. They are probably happy this took this long to hit the news. They have probably had a prepared statement for months.

Don't kid yourself. At the very least, they will get very, very rich from this 4 year stint.

And remember, as President and Commander in Chief, he has the power to stage a 2012 coup. So, no, there's no way they're regretting the biggest power-grab in history.

While I don’t support mrs o, a private conversation between her and the “1st lady” of France should remain private. The french once again showed no class.

The French Embassy in Washington also released a statement denying that Mrs. Obama ever said those words. The Embassy says Bruni-Sarkozy "distances herself completely" from the book, which is due out Friday.

Say what? It's Carla's book. How does she "distince herself completely" from it?
