Michelle Obama Was “Distressed” About the Power of “White Irish Catholics” in Illinois

A new book on the Obamas reveals that Michelle Obama was distressed and resented the power “white Irish Catholics” held in Illinois.
The Sun-Times reported:

Mrs. Obama worked in the Daley administration between Sept. 16, 1991, and April 30, 1993, according to City of Chicago personnel records. She was hired by Jarrett, then Daley’s deputy chief of staff.

Kantor writes Mrs. Obama “disapproved of how closely Daley held power, surrounding himself with three or four people who seemed to let few outsiders in — a concern she would echo years later with her own husband.

“…She particularly resented the way power in Illinois was locked up generation after generation by a small group of families, all white Irish Catholic — the Daleys in Chicago, the Hynes and Madigans statewide.”

When Jarrett was forced out of City Hall in 1995 — even though she was close to Daley — “the Obamas were horrified, their worst suspicions about the world confirmed.”

    Michelle was right this time. The white Irish Catholic Democrat gang has run Chicago Mafia style since the 50’s.

    I just hope and pray that voters are sick of these people as I am, come election day.

    Yes, Michelle Obama has some very keeeeen insights on many subjects…men, politics, vegies, trips, clothes…what a catch she was for Barry and I’m sure he never strays, or gets caught looking at other women.

    If I say I’m “Distressed” about the Power of “Black American Marxist” in the White House, would the Alinsky media not report that either? (cough cough)

  • Remco Kimber

    Yes, there are plenty of white corrupt pols, but they’re corrupt because they’re white. They corrupt because they’re thieves.

    But Chicago, NYC have put up skylines.

    Corrupt black pols on the other hand have given us Detroit.

    In this case, the mooch is right. White Irish Catholics in Chicago are frikin leftist machine democrats. White Irish catholics took illinois and ran it into the ground. Daley, Madigan machine.

    Michelle was right this time. The white Irish Catholic Democrat gang has run Chicago Mafia style since the 50′s.

    She might be right, but her motivations are unlikely to be anything besides just plain envy for the power they wielded.

    Republicans candidates WTF are you waiting for? In the last 2 days info about secret lavish party and now this racist slur by Michelle Obama–add to it her obscene spending on vacations–there is plenty of ammo to fire at her. I do not know ONE PERSON that likes her so why clobber her with her own words and actions? When will the Republican Party learn to fight for a change? And does anyone doubt that there was a “whitey” tape?

    What’s with the X-Mas tree? Did it know who was hovering next to it?

  • Sasja

    Seems to me, no matter the color of one’s skin, liberals destroy everything they touch. I’m am so thankful I live in a city that is not run by a dim political machine, and is thriving.

  • anna

    Does anyone else remember the cover of the new York magazine that caricatured the obamas as radicals, yucking it up that’s that was the way conservatives pictured them? Guess that wasn’t so off target. We should use that picture as billboards and bumperstickers now, because it proved true…

    While she was feeling nervous about the Irish Catholic Machine, O’bummer was going to school on how they worked and ran things. So we get a president with a few advisers who run the show and the least transparent administration ever. She may have been nervous then by she is in like Flynn now. mpw

    Lets look at the absurdity of this. Michelle Obama goes to work in THE CHICAGO Mayor’s office and then she complains about the politics there? That’s really rich isn’t it!

    One of the good things about seeing how people behave over a long period of time is that you can put together a mosaic about them that’s fairly accurate. Michelle Obama is clearly an angry person. It’s clear from her words, her actions, her facial expressions and her body language. We all know the type. These are the people with a chip on their shoulder. When people are angry on occasion, that’s normal. When people are angry all the time, its a character flaw.

    There are certainly things in life that make us all angry, however, when you look at this woman, it’s clear that she is just a repulsive malcontent. We see them everywhere. She is the type of person who just isn’t happy unless she’s unhappy. Too bad for her.

    What’s now interesting to see is how Barack, who portrays himself as the imperial President, is really a PW’ed MF’er at home who seems to walk on eggshells so as not to upset his bit*hy wife. No wonder he puts up such a facade!

    She’s too young or too naive to know who runs Chicago. John D’Arco and Fred Roti ran the city council for years. Both made members. Even Blago has an outfit connection through his wife.

    Didn’t keep the greed, no nothing from accepting the cushy and lucrative ( paid in the $350 thousand range annually) hospital position though did it?
