Michelle Obama quote: "Living in the White House is like living in a really nice prison."

Know what?  Sometimes it is difficult to believe what is written in some blogs.  I will admit that.  There are times when I have to question what some conservative blogs divulge.  That's why it is always a good idea to check out sources of the information.

But the quote in the title of my blog post  just HAS TO BE TRUE if it came from an interview moderated by journalist Cokie Roberts...right??

I have tried to avoid criticizing Michele Obama.  But this just goes so far over the top - it made me livid with anger!!!

Now The End Begins

Excerpt Quote:
From Washington Examiner: First Lady Michelle Obama on Tuesday described living in the White House as like being in a “really nice prison.” Obama’s comment came during her discussion with former First Lady Laura Bush at the African First Ladies Summit in Tanzania during an interview moderated by journalist Cokie Roberts.

Roberts noted that Martha Washington, the first First Lady, also described living in the role as akin to being a state prisoner.

Obama said she loved her job and found it liberating in some respects, but confining in others.
“There are some prison elements to it,” she joked. “But it’s a really nice prison.”  /end of quote


Notice how Cokie Roberts tried to smooth things over by sharing that Martha Washington said something similar.  Earth to Cokie...THINGS WERE NOT AS LUXURIOUS BACK THEN!!!

 Of course, we would NEVER hear former First Lady Laura Bush utter such a stupid comment!  At least SHE had the grace to try and help MO out of her dopey utterance when she stated:

  "Former first lady Laura Bush reminded the crowd that First Ladies had a chef."

Unfortunately, Michele Obama did not take the hint.    She went on to say in her twisted, elitist way:

“You can’t complain,” Michelle Obama admitted. “But there is definitely elements that are confining.” source – Washington Examiner

It shouldn't surprise me. Michele Obama is just as out of touch with the American people as her idiot husband!

Some of the comments at "Now The End Begins" are priceless!  Here are two of the best:

I would be happy to “let her & her husband out of jail” ! It is expensive to house regular prisoners. But these two are ridiculous!

Honestly, you just haven’t lived ’til you’ve stayed in a private 3-story villa at a 5-Star luxury hotel, the Villa Padierna.

 It only cost $95,000, and I was able to hold the total bill under $500,000 for the week. What a bargain!

Thank you also for the use of Air Force Two and the 70 Secret Service personnel who tagged along to be sure we were safe and cared for at all times. Air Force Two (which costs $11,351 per hour to operate according to Government Accounting Office reports) only used 47,500 gallons of jet fuel for this trip and carbon emissions were a mere 1,031 tons of CO2. That’s quite a carbon footprint as my good friend Al Gore would say, so we must ask the American citizens to drive smaller, more fuel efficient cars and drive less too, so we can lessen our combined carbon footprint.

But hey, Barack’s Air Force One costs about $200,000. per hour to operate and with his many trips, he spent almost half a billion dollars on flights alone last year. Yeah, that’s with a B? $500,000,000.

By the way, if you happen to be visiting the Costa del Sol, I highly recommend the Buenaventura Plaza restaurant in Marbella ; great lobster with rice and oysters! I’m ashamed to admit the lobsters we ate in Martha’s Vineyard were not quite as tasty, but what can you do if you’re not in Europe, you have to just grin and bear it.

I know times are hard and millions of you are struggling to put food on the table and trying to make ends meet.   So I do appreciate your sacrifices and do hope you find work soon. I was really exhausted after Barack took our family on a luxury vacation in Maine a few weeks ago. I just had to get away for a few days.

P.S. Thank you as well for the $2 BILLION dollar trip to India from which we just returned!
P.SS. Thank you, too, for that vacation trip to Martha’s Vineyard – It was fabulous! we were away from the White House for eleven days.
