Paul Mirengoff wrote about Michelle Obama’s description of her financial travails in “Michelle Obama sucks it up.” On the basis of Ms. Obama’s performance before a group of six women around a table in the basement playroom of the Zanesville Day Nursery, Paul adjudged Ms. Obama to be “a depressing speciman of a post-modern class of victim — demanding, whining, self-absorbed, self-pitying, and infantile.”
Ms. Obama’s grievance tour continued yesterday in North Carolina, where she discussed the hardships of paying for educations at Princeton, Columbia, and Harvard Law School:
Obama told the crowd that when she and her husband left law school, the monthly payments on their school loan debt was more than their monthly mortgage payment. She said they only got out of that debt when Barack Obama wrote his two books, “The Audacity of Hope” and “Dreams from My Father.”
And that’s not all:
Michelle Obama said each time her husband exceeds expectations in the presidential race, the standard changes.
“They tell you to raise money, you raise money,” she said. “They tell you to build an organization, and you build an organization.
“And you work hard and you reach that bar. Sometimes you surpass the bar and you look around and all of a sudden the bar has moved. The bar has changed on you and you wonder what happened.”
No doubt Reverend Wright can explain it to her.
