Is she the one making racist remarks that led to the incident of the firing of a Secret service member?

I can’t wait for more on that story.

She said her son-in-law is the hardest-working person she knows.

She should be called "First Mother-In-Law"

She is not Obama's grandmother.

I predict that the next President will have to completely remodel the entire place when the present occupants are done with it.

I’m glad I didn’t have to say that.

Does Obama repay the government for the cost of having her in the WH ... air travel, food, lodging? Any other politician would have to.

Classless. I don’t doubt other presidents may have sat this way, but I am not aware of one allowing a picture of themselves be taken while sitting that way.

Truly classless.

"And the world travel is free!!!!!!"

Being a man of integrity, I'm sure the President is compensating the American people every dime of room, board and travel that it costs them to support his mother-in-law in style.

Is she also on Michelle’s payroll of 20 attendants (make that 21?) at a cost of 1.6 million each year? She does watch the children right, she must be paid by us taxpayers you know!

I would really like to have 20 attendants to take care of me and my kids. Will you taxpayers please pay my bill?

Thats it for my rant today, guess I’m a little cranky...

I can’t blame this woman for feeling as she does. The sad part is that she can’t see that her son in law is going to be attributed with destroying America.

And I would have screamed about that too if I knew! No one should be allowed to staff that many people that we did not vote in. It seems we have no control on where our money is spent. Maybe these are the reasons that our country is bankrupt. Add up all these little nicety’s! It would be an eye opener to know where it all goes.

We don't vote in lots of people who have large numbers of people on their staffs. We don't vote for generals, who don't vote for cabinet officers, we don't vote for the director of each national park...the list goes on. If we had to vote for everyone who controls a staff of more than 20 people, the ballot would be thousands of pages long.

It seems we have no control on where our money is spent.

You get to vote for the congressmen and women who appropriate the money.

Add up all these little nicety’s! It would be an eye opener to know where it all goes.

The budget is a public record.

I stand behind no man or woman when it comes to calling Obama an absolute, unmitigated disaster as president, but the criticism for having his mother-in-law live with him in the WH is silly. Presidents and their wives have routinely housed family, friends and even staff in the White House. If anything, I applaud Obama for bringing his childrens’ grandmother to live with them and be a part of their lives.

Marian looks great for her age. This is her reward for encouraging her two kids to work hard and study hard, and to appreciate higher education. She did a good job. She deserves to rest on her laurels.
