The “insider” contends that there was an episode involving the First Lady and a member of her staff that shook up everyone. It was a big enough deal it reached folks in Congress, who forwarded it on to some donors, who then had calls into Plouffe’s office wondering WTF was going on. The First Lady is being prepped as one of the few assets for the re-election campaign but those inside know she is as big a potential liability as anything associated with the administration. They are using her in controlled environments only. That’s the word from on high. What went down between her and the staff member wasn’t just a tantrum, or some shouting. It was put to me as being “an eruption.” Talking full on screaming here. Not the first time this kind of thing has happened. I’ve shared a bit of that w/you before but this was on another scale apparently. Put the WH on security alert for a brief time. It was that bad. No mention of the president’s involvement or reaction. He was apparently AWOL during the whole thing. First Lady is complaining a lot these days. LOUDLY. To everyone. Apparently a very unhappy woman.My alarm bells went off when I heard Michelle had left four hours earlier than Barack for their Martha's Vineyard vacation, flying on separate aircraft. That just doesn't sound like a happy family.
Nobody wants to see trouble in the White House family quarters, but Obama clearly wasn't ready for this job, and neither was his wife. Read the whole column. It doesn't paint a very pretty picture of this White House.
