"First Lady requires more than twenty attendants

“The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it”
--Albert Einstein

“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.

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 Michele are the same as members of the national security and defense departments and the bill for these assorted lackeys is paid by John Q.

Wow, that's a lot of money. They're spending money faster than a drunken sailor at the nudie bar.

Thanks Em!!! Agree.   TigerAngel said ... one of the last things done to bring a country to its knees (so the USA can be EASILY folded into the North American Union due to Americans having been 'broken') is to loot the treasury.

I don't think Michelle is enjoying any more than any other First Lady has. Why not publish stats on others...there are "perks" that come with the office. she doesn't get a salary, so lets be fair about this matter .or is it because she is black and is not supposed to privileges that others before her have enjoyed. They have worked hard to get where they are....

Thanks Miss Pat and Andis!!

I'm not sure which part of   " UNPRECEDENTED NUMBER OF STAFFERS "   you both fail to understand.

That statement is irrespective of race.
