Michelle Obama: Being First Lady is like living in a ‘really nice prison’

First Lady Michelle Obama on Tuesday described living in the White House as like being in a “really nice prison.”

Obama’s comment came during her discussion with former First Lady Laura Bush at the African First Ladies Summit in Tanzania during an interview moderated by journalist Cokie Roberts.

Roberts noted that Martha Washington, the first First Lady, also described living in the role as akin to being a state prisoner.

Obama said she loved her job and found it liberating in some respects, but confining in others.

“There are some prison elements to it,” she joked. “But it’s a really nice prison.”

Former first lady Laura Bush reminded the crowd that First Ladies had a chef.

“You can’t complain,” Michelle Obama admitted. “But there is definitely elements that are confining.”

dude - it's dog shit. Not saying Bush was awesome by any means at all but Obama has been completely dog shit.
Unemployment was 7.8% (and skyrocketing) in Jan 2009. It's now 7.6%. As for GDP, you're way the **** off. 15.6B > 13.9B.

I'm sure the rest of your laundry list is equally specious.

I just saw this clip on the Sunday talk shows. WTF pete? Keep off Drudge. Did you even see the whole conversation? Laura Bush brought up the prison aspect of the White House is a prison.

And as far as I can remember every single person who has ever lived in the White house has complained about it being like kept in a bubble or prison.

Can we just go to the ultra right wing website yourself if we decide to see things taken out of context?

The only aspect I'd critique is that it is bad optics to phrase things this way so soon after visiting the site of Mandela's incarceration.

Don't know if everyone would make that connection, but for those who do and for whom Mandela is very important to them it would seem quite insulting.

Unemployment, if using consistent data as it was done in the past, was actually as high as 22% at one point. Then later around 16% .

Not true. People can visit prisons. They can't visit the White House....

When one goes into politics there is a certain loss of privacy and freedom. These things increase as one moves up the political food chain. I have really no sympathy for the President or First Lady as this was their decision to run for office and then again for re-election.
I have always had quite a bit for the kids that have grown up in the Whitehouse. They really didn’t have a choice but to grow up under the microscope.
