While much attention is paid to the failings of President Obama, the First Lady with her sour face, bitter attitude, didactic speeches and sense of entitlement has run amuck in the White House. Despite her royal lifestyle, Michelle appears to be steeped in resentment and plays the role of victim with aplomb. This is at odds with her obvious willingness to capitalize and take advantage of all that she has been offered.
- “For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country, because it feels like hope is making a comeback.”
- “Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.”
- “It’s easier to hold onto your own stereotypes and misconceptions; it makes you feel justified in your own ignorance. That’s America.”
- “I don’t lose sleep over it, because the realities are that, you know, as a black man, you know, Barack can get shot going to the gas station, you know.”
- “The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.”
- “(America is) just downright mean.”
- (On being First Lady) “No, there are prison elements to it. But it’s a really nice prison. You can’t complain. But there is definitely elements that are confining.”
The problem is that no one really wants to talk about the fact that Michelle Obama is bat-shit crazy. For starters she has multiple personalities and we never know which Michelle we are going to encounter. Is it Madcap Michelle - a featured guest on one of about 150 talk shows, reality shows and sitcoms? Or Mod Michelle dressed like a punk rock psychotropic 1950s black Barbara Billingsley? Or is it Mad Michelle scowling for the camera as she suffers through "official" duties? Perhaps it’s Macho Michelle winning a pushup contest with Ellen DeGeneres. Maybe it’s Machiavellian Michelle transforming the nation with her bizarre theological cacophony of socialism, black liberation theology, and monarchy. Or possibly even Materialistic Michelle dressed in the latest Latino designer fashions more appropriate for a svelte Latina starlet who is 15 years younger, desperately seeking celeb status, and taking taxpayer-funded $100 million dollar vacays? Could it be Meddling Michelle policing her husband’s choice of playmates (no Oprah allowed) and food? Or the more recent Militant Michelle back to instructing folks what they can and cannot eat and threatening to leave personal appearances if hecklers do not shut up.
Consider the case of Michelle Obama. She was raised in a two-parent, middle-class family on Chicago's South Side in a one-bedroom apartment. Her father, Fraser Robinson, was a city pump operator and a Democratic precinct captain. Her mother, Marian, was a Spiegel's secretary who later stayed home to raise Michelle and her older brother, Craig. Marian now lives in the White House at taxpayer expense.
Michelle often talks about her days as a struggling poor black child with the repeated line from her stump speech: "All my life I have confronted people who had a certain expectation of me. Every step of the way, there has been people telling me what I couldn't do. When I applied to Princeton, they said: you can't go there, your test scores aren't high enough."
Wow. Sad. Except that her test scores weren't high enough. Michelle Obama took advantage of the affirmative action generation of above-average performers who were granted preferential admission to America's most elite institutions without meeting the same criteria as white, Asian or Indian students. Hardly grateful for her opportunity, Michelle bitched and moaned – even her undergraduate thesis was about the trials and tribulations of a black woman at an Ivy League university.
“These experiences have made it apparent to me that the path I have chosen to follow by attending Princeton will likely lead to my further integration and/or assimilation into a White cultural and social structure that will only allow me to remain on the periphery of society; never becoming a full participant. This realization has presently, made my goals to actively utilize my resources to benefit the Black community more desirable.” - Michelle’s Thesis 1985
Michelle went on to marry Barack – a man of many names who lacked any academic transcripts or verifiable work history. Michelle took advantage of her gift of Ivy League education and worked in positions that were all political appointments. She became an assistant to Mayor Daley and then assistant commissioner of planning and development for the City of Chicago. In 1993, she became executive director for the Chicago office of Public Allies. Michelle joined the University of Chicago in 1996 as associate dean of student services, developing the university’s first community-service program. She then worked for the University of Chicago Hospitals beginning in 2002, as executive director of community relations and external affairs.
In 2005, she was appointed vice president for community and external affairs at the University of Chicago Medical Center, where she focused on staff diversity and “outreach” for a salary of $400,000 per year – luckily she only had to work “part-time” while Barack ran for president.
Michelle’s list of accomplishments as First Lady are numerous: defiling the East Room of the White House with her televised sack race with Jimmy Fallon, forcing ghetto liquor store owners to have fresh produce available at check out, being booed at NASCAR, leading a failed delegation to the Olympic committee to attract the Olympics to Chicago, going to Target, sporting bangs, claiming obesity is an issue of "national security," committing voter fraud to win the Family Circle First Lady cookie bakeoff against Ann Romney, constantly appearing in public wearing yoga pants and driving school lunch programs into the ground with new absurd government regs.
Despite her charmed life, Michelle is still pissed off and no one knows why. One would expect that someone granted so many privileges financed by the generosity of others might offer up some gratitude. Instead, she lashes out and transforms her inferiority complex into an “I’ll get you back for making me feel bad” victim mentality, obsessed with white privilege. Of course, the vast majority of whites have never encountered the privilege she has been granted by virtue of the color of her skin.
