From The Conservative Tribune:
It’s unreal how many times Michelle Obama has embarrassed herself and shown just how classless she is.
She’s been whining about not getting a salary as First Lady, telling people while on a foreign visit that it’s “very rare” for her to get to travel overseas, and she even literally told an interviewer that she’d rather sleep than go to church on Sundays.
This latest example of her classlessness reaches a new low even for her. She just suggested that her glamorous life on the campaign trail being adored by thousands at rallies and being treated like celebrities by all of the media is a lot like military life, and because of these experiences, she feels like she understands military families. Absolutely unreal.
The Washington Examiner reports:
“I first was exposed to the military community on the campaign trail. I remember that we would do these gatherings with moms, women — mostly working women — because I wanted to hear through — for my husband what were some of the challenges of working women out there. And everywhere we went, I heard the voice of a woman that I hadn’t heard before, and it was your voice. And I was just awed and blown away by what I heard through those voices, the challenges you all face,” she said.
But, she added, life on the campaign trail felt like military life. “Dealing with everything that I was dealing with — a spouse traveling, a job, kids — we didn’t deal with multiple moves, but I learned about the challenges that happen when you move from base to base to base; the way your kids have to adjust on a dime. And doing it knowing that the person you love is in harm’s way. And those stories moved me in a way that I didn’t expect.”
At some point you have to wonder about he utter cluelessness of the First Lady, who was graduated from both Princeton and Harvard Law School. Did Mrs Obama have to deal with a husband on the road a bit? Yup, sure did! But I’m guessing that being a millionaire, and having all sorts of support staff, along with Secret Service protection, makes that a bit different from what Cassy Fiano Chesser faced when her husband was deployed to Afghanistan.
When President Obama is away from the White House, Mrs Obama and her daughters still have a fully staffed mansion in which to live, complete with cooks, butlers, housekeepers, secretaries, and you name it, to insure that the Obamas need not worry for a single second about who’s taking care of the children or what to cook for dinner or whether they’ve missed anything in gathering the laundry or if there are dirty dishes piled up in the sink. And while it’s possible that Mr Obama could be shot at while he’s out, the odds that he would actually be injured or killed seem rather low compare to our soldiers and Marines on the ground in Afghanistan.
