  • There is always some truth to it, isn't there? Why else would insiders 'turn'?

  • Supposedly, the First Lady of France has written a book which is said to include a conversation between herself and Michelle Obama. MO was asked how it was being First Lady, and she was to have replied that it was hell - don't ask. I haven't read the book only heard the discussion by people who have. My only comment on that is this: did she think it was going to be easy? I would think that she should have known the demands on her time, her husband's time, the loss of privacy, and the expectation to always be "on". If that is too much, go back to Chicago and have a private life. No one forced your husband to apply for the job. (or at least, I seriously doubt there was force..............)

  • Sweet,
    You mean like you did to Sarah Palin over her clothes when she was running for vice president.

  • Politics is a fickle business. I wouldn't be surprised.

  • Mrs. O does not like being first lady, maybe they will both step down. I hope.

  • So, I guess he discovered in involves actual WORK? I don't know why the Mrs isn't happy..she has servants out the wazoo, designer duds and parties whenever she wants...not to mention a few other perks. Maybe her mother is driving her nuts?

    I wouldn't be surprised to find some kernals of truth in the opinion piece. Things are going badly and there has to be a huge amount of stress in that alone.

  • and if she DID say it, what? Her family receives death threats and are publicly attacked for everything they do...even what CLOTHES they wear...

    And this is something new?! LOL

    See, NONE of us were fooled when she sputtered a lame attempt to say "for the first time in my life, I'm proud to be an American." Following Obama's win/loss for this country! She is an intensely BITTER woman through and through!! :oP
