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."

“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.
“Painting her as an angry black woman” is the equivalent of painting watermelons green or oranges orange.
Oh, I mentioned watermelons, I suppose “that’s racist”.
It’s the boob belt.

The ugliness of this harpy’s angry, bitter, race-baiting soul is simply mirrored by her vile, loathesome, Medusa-like visage. I don’t care how un-Christian this sounds, I mean it with all my heart. I wish all the pain, suffering and misery they have inflicted on the American people since Inauguration Day 2009 is visited tenfold upon her and her family. No catastrophe is too dreadful to befall them. May she soon pray the Earth to swallow her up and the mountains to fall upon her.
My MIL turned the today show on while she was here and they had a girlie guy telling women what is the best thing for women to wear on their waists, shoulders etc
The next clip was two men and a woman who were loving the fact the guys there were acting like women.
After the AD’s they had a segment which had another girlie guy on.
I told my MIL turn it over I can’;t watch this crap.
She put it on the good morning America and there too was girlie men but also some woman who tried hard to look like a guy.
How anyone can watch those shows is beyond me, it is not entertainment it is not news it is the lefts agenda.
If these people got out of the north east and out of their elitist circles and cocktail parties and got to other parts of the country they would be shocked to see how the majority of folks are.
I want to know who watches those shows and The View. If View wasn’t reported on news channels I would have never heard of it.
“diverse” is defined by the left as “fewer white people and less traditional American culture”.
Therefore, a room full of black or hispanic people is “more diverse” than a room with equal parts white, asian, hispanic, and black people.
You bet they do, and then they go and vote.
Yea LOL the view is another.
What view 3 cackling women spouting left wing crap shouting out the republican and then having a liberal guest on there too.
It’;s all defined as entertainment but it is disguised as that so they can push their left wing agenda and get people used to seeing girlie men, fairy men , drama queens and even shows on HGTV<think it is. has shows where two of the same sex look for an house and the show tries to make them appear a normal couple.
It’s all to make the public get used to their agenda and I;ve still yet to meet anyone who can tell me why they watch all of that crap.
That's because you ARE an ANGRY BLACK WOMAN! Real people (not sycophant hanger on "friends of Obama") see you for exactly what you are: a radical angry black woman who thinks she is "your Excellency" Marie Antoinette.
very sad but you are correct.
NAIL ON HEAD.
One white kid and 15 blacks and the room is diverse.
One black kid and 15 whites and the room is not diverse.
I swear liberalism is a mental disease helped on by other liberals who tell them that they are correct or by parents who say kids need to find themselves at aged 5.
One of the signs that someone is deliberately lying is the wide open eyes and wrinkled forehead.
Yep. There have been countless tell-all books about how presidents and First Ladies have been nasty to the staff. Think back to the books about Hillary throwing an ash tray at a Secret Service agent and getting into screaming fights in the White House. Think about how Nancy Reagan was portrayed in books as "cold" to the staff. Yet when the exact same thing is written about Obama, its racial.

The last few lines of your post reminds me of a truism:
Liberals love the masses, but hate people.
Conservatives hate the masses but love people.
Being a human being is personal. Personal relationships with other people. Anything else is only relevant in marketing and politics.
I wouldn’t call her an angry black woman. I’d call her an angry amazon.
I do sometimes wonder if she has a red hourglass on her tummy. But, then, the little guy is still alive, so probably not.
good way of putting it.
I always say conservatives look at people and judge them as who they are.
The left loves to look at people by race, religion etc.
And, she has toned arms. Don't forget about the toned arms.
It just shows the “diversity” push is an anti-traditional American culture movement.
And to extrapolate, it is actually a anti-Christian movement, as traditional American culture is based on Judeo-Christian values.
agree with that.
She’s a Winnie Mandela wanna-be. If she had the power, she’d be ‘necklacing’ those who displease her. Just like Winnie did.
Scary thing is, she’s not that far from wielding the power she seeks.
" Help lift us up, help us fight this fight to change transform this country in a fundamental way.
This chance wont come around again."
So true. Most black people tend to view things in terms of race because that’s what gets ingrained to them from their own ‘community’. Compound that with their ‘white enablers’ (their ‘Plantation owners’, white Democrat politicians), and you have molded a very captive, indoctrinated, and subservient class of voters unable to move off the Liberal-racist-thinking plantation.
When you don’t know a person, all you have to go on is their race, their sex, their manner of dress and, if watching the person “in person”, their mannerisms and the way they move.
As a salesman, I would always treat women differently than men, at least at first. But it was very “slightly” different so as not to “tip my hand”.
Imelda was Miss Philippines and a hero, an icon who was adored by the Philippine people.
The comparison is with out any basis
No questions on why she has a problem with white irish catholics?
understand what you’re saying.
Her notes are kind of funny.
And - really - there is a bit of truth to them.
She is undoubtedly an affirmative action student at Princeton.
When people in that intellectual demographic meet a black person - we sort of quickly try to figure out “which type” they are. There are a few basic groups: 1. normal smart kid who happens to be black, 2. Smart black kid fully indoctrinated in black racism, and 3. Not very bright, and usually also fully Black Racist indoctrinated.
Type 2s are sort of shunned - really - does anybody need to listen to that? And type 3s are sort of handled differently - because when you are 20 IQ points ahead of someone - it is really easy to embaress them - so they sort of get the “that’s nice dear” approach. Nobody takes them seriously. (In a room full of IQ = 125+, a 110 is really obvious. They don’t get the same jokes, at the same speed, etc.) (Imagine a room full of Ann Coulters, with Moochelle.)
She didn’t belong there - and then is shocked - when she “feels like an outsider”. She got in on race - then whines that anyone notices.
Keep your wig on, Mickey!
Unfortunately, I think so...
and throw in “women’s magazines” too...they are full of Obambot worship, “green” living, the “cause” of the week and how to raise your kid into a limp-wristed OWS “advocate”.
Any time someone I meet quotes something from a “morning TV show”, I write them off...
Don’t forget working in her garden....NOT!
Cleaning out the treasury and fleeing the country was an endearing trait. LOL
The descriptor left out ‘worthless’......
You could be right...
I have a friend who teaches kindergarten in a public school which is predominately black and she is white.
She has a horrible time keeping order and teaching because the kids are disrespectful, undisciplined and “warehoused” there by their parents; she truly believes because she is white, these kids are disrespectful and that they learn it from home. Add the fact that the administration won’t support her and the “rules” favor the disrespect, she wants out of her contract asap. The union reps won’t let her go...hmmmm.
“She is undoubtedly an affirmative action student at Princeton. . . . She got in on race - then whines that anyone notices.”
Angry black women are everywhere...so much for the Obamas solving our race problems.
This was on the news in Portland yesterday. A very pretty white girl attacked by 3 black girls on our mass transit.
“”I’m shocked... I was honestly confused, shocked. Why are these people doing this to me when I literally did nothing towards them ? These kids must have so much anger in them that they feel like they have to take it out on someone whos innocent,” Buckland said.”
Well.....if a person is presented with a shoe, then chooses to loudly announce that it fits.....
What a foul woman Moochelle must be. In every picture I've seen, she always looks like she smells something bad.
