The Hell Of Being First Lady

Michelle Obama spent some time with the first lady of France, Carla Bruni, as part of her role being First Lady of the United States. Carla has written a book in which she claims when Michelle was asked about life being married to the president of the US, she replied: “Don’t ask, it’s hell. I can’t stand it.” Naturally, the White House issued an immediate denial that any such comment was made by the First Lady regarding her role in the White House. Obviously, it is impossible for anyone to know exactly what transpired between the two very attractive women who are married to heads of state. Of course, one can wonder if having your daughters attend an exclusive private school while black and white children in Washington D.C. do their best with the worst of schools is really a strain on the Obama family. One can wonder, after President Obama urged Americans to vacation on the Gulf Coast, why Michelle Obama was compelled to spend a few weeks in Spain with her daughters who were forced to sleep in a five star hotel. This is an example of life being hell for the Obamas.

Oh, during the summer, Michelle did not spend time on the Gulf Coast but was again forced to spend her days in the hell known as Martha’s Vineyard. These days it is really tough being a First Lady.

In March, 1933, on the day her husband became president, Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt served hog dogs for dinner. When the King and Queen visited America, Mrs. Roosevelt again served hot dogs. One day, when a friend in California called to describe migrant camps, Mrs. Roosevelt, did not head up to Martha’s Vineyard, but got on a regular plane, flew to California and spent a few weeks visiting camps and where poor people were living. How many times did Eleanor Roosevelt appear at a strike encouraging people! Sorry, Michelle Obama, instead of spending time in five star hotels, how about taking a page out of the Eleanor Roosevelt book of life? We poor people loved Mrs. Roosevelt, Michelle Obama will be admired for her beauty and grace, but never loved by poor people.
