    Default "The first lady makes due in tough times"

    "In my own life, in my own small way, I have tried to give back to this country that has given me so much," she said. "See, that's why I left a job at a big law firm for a career in public service, " Michelle Obama

    First Lady requires more than 20 attendants

    No, Michele Obama does not get paid to serve as the First Lady and she doesn't perform any official duties. But this hasn't deterred her from hiring an unprecedented number of staffers to cater to her every whim and to satisfy her every request in the midst of the Great Recession. Just think Mary Lincoln was taken to task for purchasing china for the White House during the Civil War. And Mamie Eisenhower had to shell out the salary for her personal secretary.
    How things have changed! If you're one of the tens of millions of Americans facing certain destitution, earning less than subsistence wages stocking the shelves at Wal-Mart or serving up McDonald cheeseburgers, prepare to scream and then come to realize that the benefit package for these servants of Miz Michelle are the same as members of the national security and defense departments and the bill for these assorted lackeys is paid by John Q. Public:

    1. $172,2000 - Sher, Susan (Chief Of Staff)
    2. $140,000 - Frye, Jocelyn C. (Deputy Assistant to the President and Director of Policy And Projects For The First Lady)
    3. $113,000 - Rogers, Desiree G. (Special Assistant to the President and White House Social Secretary)
    4. $102,000 - Johnston, Camille Y. (Special Assistant to the President and Director of Communications for the First Lady)
    5. Winter, Melissa E. (Special Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)
    6. $90,000 - Medina , David S. (Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)
    7. $84,000 - Lelyveld, Catherine M. (Director and Press Secretary to the First Lady)
    8. $75,000 - Starkey, Frances M. (Director of Scheduling and Advance for the First Lady)
    9. $70,000 - Sanders, Trooper (Deputy Director of Policy and Projects for the First Lady)
    10. $65,000 - Burnough, Erinn J. (Deputy Director and Deputy Social Secretary)
    11. Reinstein, Joseph B. (Deputy Director and Deputy Social Secretary)
    12. $62,000 - Goodman, Jennifer R. (Deputy Director of Scheduling and Events Coordinator For The First Lady)
    13. $60,000 - Fitts, Alan O. (Deputy Director of Advance and Trip Director for the First Lady)
    14. Lewis, Dana M. (Special Assistant and Personal Aide to the First Lady)
    15. $52,500 - Mustaphi, Semonti M. (Associate Director and Deputy Press Secretary To The First Lady)
    16. $50,000 - Jarvis, Kristen E. (Special Assistant for Scheduling and Traveling Aide To The First Lady)
    17. $45,000 - Lechtenberg, Tyler A. (Associate Director of Correspondence For The First Lady)
    18. Tubman, Samantha (Deputy Associate Director, Social Office)
    19. $40,000 - Boswell, Joseph J. (Executive Assistant to the Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)
    20. $36,000 - Armbruster, Sally M. (Staff Assistant to the Social Secretary)
    21. Bookey, Natalie (Staff Assistant)
    22. Jackson, Deilia A. (Deputy Associate Director of Correspondence for the First Lady)

    There has never been anyone in the White House at any time that has created such an army of staffers whose sole duties are the facilitation of the First Lady's social life. One wonders why she needs so much help, at taxpayer expense, when even Hillary, only had three; Jackie Kennedy one; Laura Bush one; and prior to Mamie Eisenhower social help came from the President's own pocket.
    Note: This does not include makeup artist Ingrid Grimes-Miles, 49, and "First Hairstylist" Johnny Wright, 31, both of whom travelled aboard Air Force One to Europe .

    6 of the listed staff do not have salaries attached

    Of the salaries listed the total comes to

    ONE MILLION, Two Hundred Twenty Five Thousand, Five Hundred Dollars.

    And she still is Butt-Ugly.
    The liberals are asking us to give Obama time. We agree and think 25 to life would be appropriate.

    I'd damned well like to know how in the hell she figured out why even a fraction of these positions were required?

    Where are they officing so many?

    Amazing how these frauds are milking the system for all they can get......When the Hell comes down on these 2, and it will, it's going to be amazing to watch.

    The majority of America will grow to loath these 2 and their cronies before it's all said and done and they'll have nothing to blame but their greed and deceit.

    OT, they took their Q from GM. The GM President has to have several VP's who have to have division vP who in-turn have to have several vp's each needing a staff of mangers so they can have a v or a p in their title. If it's good enough for GM, its surely good enough for the Obama's.

    America is the land of equal opportunity, not equal success.

    Tex you can rest assured Thumbs, Havasu 1986, Ultra, Rod and all the other "Leaping Liberals" will be along any minute to explain how Michelle is justified doing this and why Laura Bush didn't need them. In the same explanation we'll surely get full disclosure on Pelosi's travel expenses. Just a side note, Snopes hasn't covered the Kenyan's butt on this one in case "anyone" was checking.

    Then, and only then, we'll understand such a waste of taxpayer moneys.

    Personally, I think it's just another example of trashy people who have moved into government housing bilking the system as they all seem to do.

    hmmmm, Laura Bush is pretty, smart and well organized....I'm pretty sure that just about covers it.

    All you raciest white boys need to shut up! Oops, I was speaking for Shake Your Big Ass!

    She was not, or any other first lady, elected to an office or appointed to a position......a free meal, room, and board should be all they get. Sounds like if they need help there should be some intern position's offered.

    Say no to CZAR'S also!
