Disapproving of Richard Daley and Mike Madigan has absolutely nothing to do with the color of their skin, their religion or their ethnicity. It has to do with their lack of moral character as individuals.
I am offended by this woman, yet again.

A new book on the Obamas reveals that Michelle Obama was distressed and resented the power “white Irish Catholics” held in Illinois.
The Sun-Times reported:
Mrs. Obama worked in the Daley administration between Sept. 16, 1991, and April 30, 1993, according to City of Chicago personnel records. She was hired by Jarrett, then Daley’s deputy chief of staff.
Kantor writes Mrs. Obama “disapproved of how closely Daley held power, surrounding himself with three or four people who seemed to let few outsiders in — a concern she would echo years later with her own husband.
“…She particularly resented the way power in Illinois was locked up generation after generation by a small group of families, all white Irish Catholic – the Daleys in Chicago, the Hynes and Madigans statewide.”
When Jarrett was forced out of City Hall in 1995 — even though she was close to Daley — “the Obamas were horrified, their worst suspicions about the world confirmed.”
