Michelle Sez Barack Has Hit His Boiling Point

From the UK’s Telegraph:

Michelle Obama: Barack has hit boiling point

Barack Obama is struggling to contain his anger and frustration over the constant barrage of questions about his character and judgment, his wife has revealed.

Michelle Obama lifted the lid on the irritation felt by the leading Democrat candidate for the White House at the way anti-American outbursts by his pastor, Jeremiah Wright, have dogged his campaign…

Mrs Obama told a rally in Durham, North Carolina, on Friday that only her husband’s desire to change US politics had helped him to control his feelings: “Barack is always thinking three steps ahead – what do we need to do to make change.”

Her husband was thinking “I can’t let my ego, my anger, my frustration get in the way of the ultimate goal,” she said.

Barack has been characterised as many things that have nothing to do with who he is.” …

Mr Axelrod said Mr Obama had been using games of basketball to let off steam. He said the Wright affair had undoubtedly had some impact on voters, but claimed his candidate was ready for the fight ahead.

“He has enjoyed the chance to shoot a little ball. I think we’re in a good groove,” he said. And in a dig at Mrs Clinton and her husband Bill, he said: “We knew from the start of this race that we were taking on the most formidable machine in Democratic politics.

“It’s in full display right now. She’s tenacious and she can multiply her reach because her husband is working just as hard as either of the candidates.”

In contrast with the Clintons, Mrs Obama said: “We were taught that you don’t rip your opponents to pieces, you don’t leave them on the roadside.” …

James Pickens is typical of those who have been inspired by the black senator from Illinois. A reformed crack cocaine dealer, he is now peddling Obama T-shirts.

Mr Pickens, 50, has served three prison terms totalling 13 years, but vowed to change his ways after hearing Mr Obama speak.

He said: “I never voted for a president before. He’s for change, which is something I need in my life. Until recently I was selling drugs, and now I’m selling T-shirts.” …

Isn’t this the same Michelle Obama who assured us that Barack’s finely calibrated “moral compass” was more important than experience?

Yet now we are told we can’t even ask questions about Mr. Obama’s judgment — or rather, his lack of same?

Barack Obama is struggling to contain his anger and frustration over the constant barrage of questions about his character and judgment, his wife has revealed.

Mr. Obama just answered the questions.

He is deficient in both.
