    This is just plain abuse.......

    Written by Dr. Paul L. Williams

    "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

    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 from her husband's salary.
    Total Personal Staff members for other first ladies paid by taxpayers:
    Mamie Eisenhower : 1 paid for personally out of President's salary
    Jackie Kennedy: 1
    Roseline Carter: 1
    Barbara Bush: 1
    Hilary Clinton: 3
    Laura Bush: 1
    Michele Obama: 22

    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 Ms Michelle are the same as members of the national security and defense departments and the bill for these assorted lackeys is paid by YOU, John Q. Public:
    Michele Obama's personal staff:
    1. $172,200 - Sher, Susan (Chief Of Staff)

    2. $140,000 - Frye, Jocelyn C. (Dep Asst to President and Dir of Policy And Projects for First Lady)

    3. $113,000 - Rogers, Desiree G. (Spec Asst to the President and WH Social Sec for Mrs. Obama)

    4. $102,000 - Johnston, Camille Y. (Spec Asst to President and Dir of Communications for First Lady)

    5. $100,000 - Winter, Melissa E. (Spec Asst to President and Dep Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)

    6. $90,000 - Medina , David S. (Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)

    7. $84,000 - Lel yveld, 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. $64,000 - Reinstein, Joseph B. (Deputy Director and Deputy Social Secretary)

    12. $62,000 - Goodman, Jennifer R. (Dep Director of Scheduling & Events Coord For The First Lady)

    13. $60,000 - Fitts, Alan O. (Deputy Director of Advance and Trip Director for the First Lady)

    14. $57,500 - Lewis, Dana M. (Special Assistant and Personal Aide to the First Lady)

    15. $52,500 - Mustaphi, Semonti M. (Assoc Dir and Dep Press Secretary To The First Lady)

    16. $50,000 - Jarvis, Kristen E. (Spec Asst for Scheduling and Traveling Aide To The First Lady)

    17. $45,000 - Lechtenberg, Tyler A. (Associate Director of Correspondence For The First Lady)

    18. $43,000 - Tubman, Samanth a (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. $35,000 - Bookey, Natalie (Staff Assistant)

    22. $35,000 - Jackson, Deilia A. (Dep Assoc Dir of Correspondence for the First Lady)

    (total = $1,591,200 in annual salaries)

    There has NEVER been anyone in the White House at any time who 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.

    Note: This does not include makeup artist Ingrid Grimes-Miles, 49, and "First Hairstylist" Johnny
    Wright, 31, both of whom traveled aboard Air Force One to Europe.

    Yes, I know, The Canadian Free Press had to publish this perhaps because America no longer has a free press and the USA media is too scared that they might be considered racist or suffer at the handsof Obama. Sorry America !

    It would be much more interesting and meaningful if the source of the data and similar stats on a couple of recent preceeding administrations was included.

    Otherwise we are left with just opinion without a basis.

    This is obscene!!! What the hell, does she need a staff of that size? This is the great change that the Oboy promised. It's time for a taxpayers revolt!

    And if I remember right, Truman wouldn't even accept gratuties after leaving office & drove himself home to Missouri after innagurating his succesor, without secret service. Todays ex's have the world by the A** and smile about it. And the present one is going to lead the pack of thieves.

    Even with the claims of jobs created and "jobs saved" used by the administration, I heard it comes to somewhere around 250,000 dollars of taxpayer money per job. I heard that cash for clunkers came to thousands of dollars per car for the taxpayers. Add in the 8000 dollars per house for new home buyers. At this rate I don't think I want Obama and the Democrats to keep on fixing the economy. They would be far better off taking the trillions they are spending and giving it straight back to us by a check in the mail. Not sure what that would do for the value of a dollar and inflation. We will find out won't we. And he still has better than a 50 percent approval rating. And they want this bunch to take over health care. It is supposed to save us money. What has happened to liberals brains.

    It seems that the liberals have their tales between their legs today, and rightfully so. They have absolutely nothing to offer, except spend OTHER PEOPLES money.

    Hussein told some of the biggest lies ever told while campaigning, and now it has come back to haunt him. His words and deeds are written down. He can't vote 'present' in the Whitehouse, like he did in the Senate. That, alone, should have been and indication of just how conniving and untrustworthy he is. He can no longer hide his extreme socialist agenda. He is nothing more than extreme liberal socialist, and is America's worst nightmare.

    Hopefully, the exposure about hussein will continue, and he will be a one term pres. The country's existence depends on it...

    Hey guy, here you go:

    There has been some discussion of Michelle Obama’s staff payroll compared to Laura Bush’s. Here are the results of my investigation.

    Michelle Obama has 16 paid staff which cost the American taxpayers $1,256,700.

    Laura Bush had 10 paid staff which cost the American taxpayers $764,900.

    A difference of $491,800.

    Mr. Largedog

    They both seem obnoxious to me.

    I'd bet the Clinton and Reagan first ole ladies had exorbitant staff expenses as well.

    Shouldn't a good wife be barefoot, pregnant and chained to the stove? Or falling short of that ideal, out working earning money for her family like 99% of most real women in America?

    What about all the money congressman of both parties spend on personal BS and benefits that no real American is entitled to? Those congressman make me the most upset, both donkey and pacaderm.
