First Lady Michelle Obama Describes Herself as a ‘Busy Single Mother’

While foot-in-mouth moments happen to all public figures from time to time, first lady Michelle Obama has come under particular scrutiny for her consistent attempts at painting herself as an average, everyday woman. The most recent verbal faux pas came during an interview with Burlington, Vt. CBS affiliate WCAX, when the first lady described herself as a “busy single mother.”

Perhaps realizing the backlash such a statement would cause, Mrs. Obama quickly backtracked, qualifying, “sometimes when you’ve got the husband who’s president, it can feel a little single, but he’s there.”

Really??  Does that ever happen to the rest of you married moms?  Do you accidentally say you are a busy ‘single mother’ and then have to back track?  Think about it….?!?

Quote of the Day: @JT_Dudenhoffer3h – “Moochelle Obama called herself a ‘single mom’ in an interview today – It’s ok, Moochelle – many of us already know your Barack’s beard…”

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
