  • Michelle Obama 'raged against Rahm Emmanuel and White House advisors'

    The Telegraph ^ | 1-7-12 | Raf Sanchez
    The First Lady reportedly believed that Mr Emmanuel's willingness to cut backroom deals during the battle over health care reform was tainting Barack Obama's image as a new kind of American leader. The Obamas paints a picture of a presidential inner circle divided between Mrs Obama's idealistic belief in what the administration could achieve and the grittier pragmatism of Mr Emmanuel. The book, written by New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor, claims that the chief of staff refused to allow the president's wife into high-level morning meetings, leading a brooding Mrs Obama to berate other senior advisers by email. She...

    *snip* “She feels as if our rudder isn’t set right,” Mr. Obama confided, according to aides. Rahm Emanuel, then chief of staff, repeated the first lady’s criticisms to colleagues with indignation, according to three of them. Mr. Emanuel, in a brief interview, denied that he had grown frustrated with Mrs. Obama, but other advisers described a grim situation: a president whose agenda had hit the rocks, a first lady who disapproved of the turn the White House had taken, and a chief of staff who chafed against her influence.

  • Apology follows email referring to Michelle Obama as ‘Mrs. YoMama’

    Chicago Sun Times ^ | January 6, 2012
    Kansas House Speaker Mike O’Neal apologized Thursday for forwarding an email poking fun at first lady Michelle Obama and referring to her as “Mrs. YoMama.” The Lawrence Journal-World reported Thursday that O’Neal, a Hutchinson Republican, sent the email from his personal account. The email also had a photo comparing Mrs. Obama to the Grinch and the subject line, “Twins separated at birth?” The photo has been circulating on the Internet and shows Mrs. Obama’s hair being swept by the wind, recalling a drawing of the fictional Dr. Seuss character from the classic Christmas cartoon. In forwarding the email, O’Neal joked...

    We know by now that first lady Michelle Obama isn't afraid to get on the dance floor, and this time, FLOTUS has taken her grooves to Nickelodeon's "iCarly." Obama will appear in the January 16 episode as part of her Joining Forces initiative that supports military families, Entertainment Weekly reports. In the (adorable) clip, Miranda Cosgrove's Carly and her pals are given a verbal pat on the back by the first lady, who tells them she's proud of the way they set up a webcast to celebrate the birthday of Carly's dad, an Air Force colonel, when he couldn't make...

    It's all so weird. It's all so unseemly. Multi-millionaires begging for $3 and selling themselves off in raffles. The email Michelle Obama sent to me: This holiday has felt a bit like one last long, deep breath before we plunge into 2012. This time next year, I don't want us to have any regrets. I want to be able to say we rose to the task, and got it done. We've all got some work to do right now. Over the next 11 months we've got an organization to grow, voters to register, and people to get fired up. I...

    White House Dossier ^ | 12/30/11 | Keith Koffler
    Speaking from her paradisical $4 million Hawaii vacation, Mrs. Obama wants to know: Do any of President Obama’s supporters have $3 to spare for his reelection? This is approximately like coming upon Warren Buffett on a street corner with a McDonald’s cup asking if he can have 15 cents. Michelle’s request was part of an email sent to the Obama 2012 list today. Over the next 11 months we’ve got an organization to grow, voters to register, and people to get fired up.

    Atlanta Journal Constitution / AP ^ | December 24, 2011 | Julie Pace
    Michelle Obama was looking for help from more than just House Republicans so her husband could make it to Hawaii in time for Christmas. "We were all praying and praying, and asking Santa, and the tooth fairy, and every fairy they could think of," the first lady said Saturday. She said their children prayed as well that the president "would be able to be with us." President Barack Obama eventually made it to Hawaii, about a week late, and only after Congress resolved its stalemate over extending expiring payroll tax cuts. With the tense tax standoff behind him, the president...

    Michelle Obama would come back as Bo. Not just any dog, but Bo the dog. In a television interview, the first lady was asked what person or thing she would want to come back as when she dies. She named her family's Portuguese water dog. "He's got a great life," she told ABC News' Barbara Walters.

    First lady Michelle Obama enjoyed a lovely evening at Co Co. Sala on F Street on Monday night. A Yeas & Nays source tells us she dined with seven friends for dinner and, of course, dessert -- which featured an edible chocolate sculpture and house-made artisanal chocolates by Chef Santosh Tiptur. We're told Obama's favorite savory was Chef Tiptur's Moroccan Swordfish Sliders with chermoula marinade, fennel salad, aged pecorino and hazelnut coffee dressing.

    On his Wednesday show, radio host Rush Limbaugh illustrated what would otherwise be an ill-advised hypothetical situation by suggesting that if Michelle Obama were to appear on his radio show, he would introduce the first lady with Sir-Mix-A-Lot’s 1992 hit “Baby Got Back.” Limbaugh’s goal was to “illustrate” what the reaction would be, compared to the scant attention given when GOP presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann was introduced on Jimmy Fallon’s Monday night NBC program to Fishbone’s “Lyin’ A** B****.” “Ladies and gentlemen, it is not often that we have guests here on this program at the EIB Network,” Limbaugh...

    Good Morning America on Monday repeated White House talking points in regard to the booing of Michelle Obama at a NASCAR event on Sunday. News reader Josh Elliott played a clip of the booing and then parroted, "The White House says it was a chaotic event. It was not clear, perhaps, what the boos were specifically for." The Today show didn't cover the event at all. On the Early Show, Jeff Glor linked, "Some people booed [Michelle Obama and Jill Biden] when they showed up last night. They were on hand to honor military troops and their families." So, is...

    CNS News ^ | 11/14/11 | Terence P. Jeffrey
    (CNSNews.com) - Visiting an organic farm in Hawaii on Saturday, First Lady Michelle Obama said that “arugula and steak” was her “favorite” meal and expressed her view that American children need to “get their palates adjusted” so they will begin eating properly. Mrs. Obama also said that children in “underserved communities” become obese because they “aren’t growing up with vegetables because there are no grocery stores.” The first lady was participating in a roundtable discussion at the Ma’o Organic Farms in Waianae, Hawaii. During the discussion, according to the White House transcript of the event, she said that she had...

    Michelle’s back, and she’s madder than ever. She was already pretty angry, seemingly unhappy with just about everything. As her husband wrapped up the Democratic nomination in 2008, she let fly her real feelings: “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m really proud of my country.” A few months into her job as first lady, her French counterpart asked how she liked the gig: “Don’t ask!” she reportedly spat. “It’s hell. I can’t stand it!” She even seems to be mad at her silver-tongued husband. When the two were to set off on a luxurious 10-day vacation to...

    WhiteHouse Dossier ^ | 10-28-11 | Keith Koffler
    In a chilling appraisal of President Obama’s Republican opposition, First Lady Michelle Obama Thursday suggested a Republican victory in the 2012 presidential election would result in curbs on freedom of speech and religion. Speaking at a fundraiser at a private residence in Tampa, Mrs. Obama noted the power of the president to appoint members of the Supreme Court. She clearly indicated that a Republican would select justices who would attack basic First Amendment rights, saying, “that’s what’s at stake” in the election. From the White House transcript: Let’s not forget about what it meant when my husband appointed those two...
