Caught an interesting article covering a new book that claimed Michelle Obama considered divorcing Barrack Obama after his apparently disastrous Congress defeat in which she urged him not to run. Here are some of the details.
This was a calamitous turn of events, and during the dark days that followed his defeat, he turned to Michelle for comfort. But she was in no mood to offer him sympathy. After all, he had refused to listen to her warnings about taking on the formidable Bobby Rush. He had put his family in a precarious financial position. And he had dashed Michelle’s hopes of creating a stable and secure future. As a result, their marriage was on the rocks, and Obama confided to friends that he and Michelle were talking about divorce.
I believe this story has legs because this is the very definition of an I told you so moment that also smells like hypergamic urges. After all she thought she his career was probably finished and was ready to cut bait for a more successful suitor. If only she pulled the trigger on the divorce perhaps the nation would have been spared this presidency. Men take heed even the eventual most powerful man in the world is subject to the universal law of hypergamy.
Expecting sympathy when your down? Don’t.
Expecting her on your side win or lose midaswell flip a coin.
Maybe Mr. Obama consulted Athol Kay and gamed his wife back into control. Oh wait I doubt it from all appearances it appears she still pulls the strings like Geppetto.
