Living at the White House is said to have always been a rather tedious and tumultuous affair for Mrs. Obama. While she enjoys the benefits of 24/7 service of her day-to-day whims, (which are considerable) ultimately she finds the job of First Lady to be a demeaning one. She has noted more recently the lessening of media attention devoted to her as well, a condition that is alleged to not sit well with a woman who has kept and organized every magazine cover she has been featured on over the last eight years.
Her East Wing office has devolved into a personal media affairs command and control center whereby her staff seek out yet more fawning coverage that separates her from her president-husband. Rumors have long suggested Michelle Obama has little regard for Barack Obama’s leadership abilities. She finds him too weak and uncertain and always in need of a strong push in the back to make certain he doesn’t stray from the path of revolution she has long deemed essential to America’s future.
“She (Michelle Obama) has always been the more radical of the two. As the years in the White House went by, she has been the one to complain loudest that they weren’t getting enough done.”
She enjoys the largest staff of any First Lady in American history – nearly thirty individuals with combined annual salaries of almost $2 million tax-payer dollars devoted to keeping her happy and her policies front and center within the administration. And yet despite that excess, it seems none of it can ultimately keep Mrs. Obama satisfied.
Among the most intimate of D.C. circles, her temper tantrums have become things of legend. On more than one occasion it has been the First Lady’s booming voice that has reverberated against the labyrinth-like White House walls as she makes clear her dissatisfaction regarding presidential policy, congressional push back, or what she deems to be unfair media criticism. Among the most consistent things to evoke an unhappy reaction from Mrs. Obama is her husband’s noted penchant for tardiness. The First Lady is obsessively detailed, demanding from her staff that every minute of her public schedule be meticulously mapped out days and weeks ahead of time. It has become something of an ongoing joke among the White House Press Corps that when a presidential appearance is scheduled, they automatically factor in an additional thirty minutes before the President will actually arrive.
