Have you ever realized that one of the very real problem extremely shallow people who have no real values in life other than to be completely fake have problems finding “substance” in their lives?
Pity poor Michelle Obama. Her life lacks substance and a purpose. So, she canned her staff and hired new people to help her re-tune her image.
A person who knows who they are and isn’t afraid of being themselves and letting the world see who they are and what they believe doesn’t need to “re-tune an image” they can just be themselves.

She was horrified to learn that she had become a liability to the candidate for saying that for the first time in her life, she was proud of her country.
“Obviously, given how fundamentally distorted the public lens was on her, I think we could have done a much better job for her. . . . I don’t think there’s any question about that,” Axelrod concedes. “It took her a while to dig out of that.”
It was against this background that the first lady and her staff were determined to create in the White House a culture that was, as Norris put it, “authentic” to the first lady. Since the election, her disciplined (journalists might say controlling) staff has carefully managed her media exposure and methodically laid the groundwork for her issues, a “soft launch,” as one aide said. And the first lady’s approval ratings flew into the 80s, exceeding her husband’s, and higher than any other first lady’s at a comparable time….”
