First Lady Michelle Obama is currently pretending to be a domestic goddess with the publication of a new food and gardening book. Of course, this also provides her with free TV exposure to promote her husband’s re-election in November.
Michelle Malkin isn’t impressed with her domestic goddess role-playing. Malkin points out that Michelle Obama is a bitter political operative who was deeply involved in cronyism and political games when she and Barack were plotting his political future in Chicago.
Michelle Malkin writes:
Obama’s outspoken bitter half conscientiously and deliberately inserted herself into the public square long before the family moved to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue — whether it was organizing a Woods Fund panel with her husband and Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers, taking a publicly subsidized government job with Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, or parlaying her relationship with political mentor Valerie Jarrett into a cushy public job at the University of Chicago Medical Center, where she oversaw a patient-dumping scheme that benefited her political cronies.
In addition, the First Lady has been traveling throughout the country strong-arming restaurant chains to change their menus to fit her personal health standards. And, of course, she’s taken numerous lavish vacations at taxpayer expense. Her vacation in Spain, for example, included 70 Secret Service agents and 250 Spanish law enforcement officers in 2010.
