However, Michelle may have had a good reason to think of herself as a single mom. While speaking at a fundraiser in Atherton, California, Barack Obama was hitting on California Attorneys General Kamala Harris,
“You have to be careful to, first of all, say she is brilliant and she is dedicated and she is tough, and she is exactly what you’d want in anybody who is administering the law, and making sure that everybody is getting a fair shake. She also happens to be by far the best-looking attorney general in the country — Kamala Harris is here."Was Obama being sexist, wolfish, and boorish? Or is he just a cad? Whatever, he needs to pay more attention to his hormonal problem that pops up from time to time. Obama got himself in deep doo-doo back in 2008 when he addressed a reporter as "sweetie" which was demeaning and condescending, but he also said in a debate that Hillary Clinton was "likeable enough". Many people of all sexes and all political stripes heard that as arrogant and smug.
Maybe the rumors about separate vacations are more true than not. Maybe it's not all kumbaya in the White House residence.
