I get the feeling that this administrations wants to be viewed as a television show.  Something like a sit-com with a cast of characters that we are supposed to love regardless of their policy and behavior.  The media of course has played along with the charade but lost ratings.  Only FOX ratings have gone up and only FOX has any substance. 

The emperor has no cloths.  I don't think most people are buying the BS as easily anymore.

We can only hope that the mindless masses are beginning to awaken...

i think the article talks about what other 1st ladies have had.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
