It’s been an unexpectedly busy morning, and I was browsing through my feed reader, when I came across this, via Michelle Obama’s Mirror,
This is a portrait of an enraged woman. Enraged to the point where she exhibits this anger in public functions.
Is she angry for the same reasons as Dan? The Anchoress explains,
People are feeling not just “fooled” but betrayed and disrespected by their elected leaders, who are supposed to be their servants. No one likes feeling that way. Many Conservatives and Independents sense that their hirees are out of control and dictating to them from on high; to them, America feels like a college campus occupied by a bunch of spoiled adolescents who are alternately calling their tuition-paying parents “stupid and bourgeois” or “stupid and oppressed,” depending on the day. They are bristling at the disdain and condescension they sense from their government. In his speech today, Obama seemed one rhetorical flourish away from saying, “don’t you know who I am?” And the sense I am getting is that Americans are ready to say, in return, “don’t you know who we are, who hired you?”
Certainly Michelle Obama’s anger is not due to that.
But, who knows?

I am assuming that this picture is of very recent vintage. It reminds me of the MO of the early campaign when we R’s thought if we could just keep her talking, the election might be winnable. Then the O campaign woke up, Put MO out to pasture for a while and she returned all sweetness and light. My understanding has been that she has remained so because she is really enjoying the perks of living in the WH and being FLOTUS. But maybe not even that can cure her rage.

She has so much to be angry about – first, she’s married to a flaming idiot! Second, her country (which she disdains) has provided her with a first class education (something my parents – both of whom worked full time – could not afford) and a nice life. Not to mention she has two beautiful daughters and a very nice life as First Lady. Ah, the lack of peace and happiness. Maybe Captain Utopia is a dud in the sack?

I know this sounds mean but, let’s face it, she’s not that great looking. If she’s not photographed in just the right light, it ends up looking like the photo on your site.
Barry needs to be put in his place.
Hey, Barry, you are a public servant. That’s right, Zero, you work for us.
We are your boss.
Get with the program and lose the elitist attitude, dude.
P. S. Paul Ryan kicked your butt.

Judith L. – I think it’s a very recent picture. Look at the hair style – it’s the ‘new and improved’ make-over coif.
Too bad they couldn’t remake her attitude as well.
I think she was reading to children.
Maybe that’s the mean look she gives to fat kids.
This almost makes me feel sorry for him.

Who is administering the country? The bad tempered (what’s the word) or the Smoothie. All current decisions seem to be evoced from those of anger/disrespect.
I think the Party needs to step in very fast before the Smoothie is impeached.
Rember Hilary and her health care attempt tried to usurp the perogratives of the President.
Looks a lot like pillow talk or the lack of it is screwing up a lot of policy to me.
Viva Chavez!!!!! Wonderfull are the works of a wheelbarrow!!!! – I don’t believe this woman could kiss without biting. What big teeth you have…..
Call me an old male sexist pig. No woman looks good angery.
O Bloody Hell says
> “Why is this woman so angry?”
Pissed-Off Bitch Syndrome?
