I wake up every morning wondering how on earth I am going to pull off that next minor miracle to get through the day...That is the dilemma women face today. Every woman that I know...is struggling to keep her head above water...More often than not, we as women, are the primary caretakers in our households, scheduling babysitters, planning play dates, keeping up with regular doctor’s appointments; this was my week last week, supervising homework, handing our discipline. Usually we are the ones in charge of keeping the household together.God only knows what the men are doing all this time. Whatever it is, it's only barely adequate.
I know you men, I know that you guys try to do your part, but the reality is that we’re doing it, right? (laughter and applause) Laundry, cleaning, cooking, shopping, home repairs.Barack is doing something or other, but it's pretty much negligible and she's really doing all the work. She's probably happy is Barack remembers to take his muddy shoes off when he walks in the door. Poor thing. It's not like she expects anything else out of him. After all, he's a man. More humiliating stories about Barack follow.
And, for those of us who work outside of the home as well, we have the additional challenge of coordinating these things with our job responsibilities. How many of us have had to be the ones, when a child gets sick, who is the one who stays home? Or, when a toilet overflows? This was a couple of months ago. I was scrambling around to reschedule being at a 9 o’clock meeting and Barack, love him to death, put on his clothes and he left!Just so you know, if my wife or girlfriend ever gets up and tells stories like this in front of crowds, we're going to have a long talk and she's not going to like it.
There's more, but I just don't feel like reading or quoting it. It's tiresome. Ms. Obama with her law degree, mansion, high-profile job and enormous piles of cash keeps carping about how her life is so lousy and men don't carry their weight. My response is pretty simple.
Michelle, just shove it.
