Why Does Michelle Obama's Mother Live at the White House?

Here’s a question I’ll bet nobody ever asked Jay Carney at a White House press briefing: Why does Michelle Obama’s mother live at the White House at taxpayer expense?  (If someone has asked, please send link for me to stand corrected.)


Now that Michelle Obama’s mother has caused a disruption on the latest exotic vacation for the first lady, perhaps it is time for some answers about why Marian Robinson is even on the trip to China. Worse, why is she appearing in official photographs with Chinese officials?

Drudge is reporting in big bold lead letters that Marian Robinson is barking orders at hotel staff and generally misbehaving.

How many Americans know that Michelle Obama’s mother is living at the White House at taxpayer expense?  Not many, I’d guess.

So why does the mother of the first lady live at the White House?  Why not cousins or uncles?  Or perhaps brothers from Kenya?  After all, White House digs are better than a hut.
