You’re not supposed to attack the families, right? The families are sacrosanct.
What about when they do something really, really, really dumb?
Yesterday, during the President’s Wild and Wooly African Weekend, FLOTUS declared publicly that living in the White House is “like a prison”.
The White House.
If the White House were on the private market it would be the most expensive home in the world. President Obama would be trying to tax it, Occupy Wall Street would try to blow it up, and George Soros would try to buy it. All of them would be claiming Mitt Romney owned it.
Despite former (and classier) FLOTUS Laura Bush’s attempt to remove, albeit gently, Michelle’s foot from her mouth on a global stage, she pressed on. She even continued declaring it a prison even after it was pointed out that the first lady has her own personal chef!
Five years ago, we heard Michelle say she was proud of her country for the first time. We elected her husband, vaulted her into permanent celebrity status, and placed her in the most expensive home in the country at its most famous address. And how does she thank us? The White House is a prison.
For the first time in my adult life I am sorry for Barack Obama.
No, scratch that, I’m not. He made his choice.
