Mrs. Obama Demands Small Army of Attendants
Paul L. Williams, Ph.D.
"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, thats why I left a job at a big law firm for a career in public service,"
We were wrong.
Michelle Obama, as we reported on July 7, is not served by twenty-two attendants who stand by to cater to her every whim.
She is served by twenty-six attendants, including a hair dresser and make-up artist.
The annual cost to taxpayers for such unprecedented attention is approximately $1,750,000 without taking into account the expense of the lavish benefit packages afforded to every attendant.
Little did American voters realize the call for change would result in the establishment of an Obama oligarchy.
The discovery of the additional attendants was made by DAngelo Gore of factcheck.org and by calls to Katie McCormick Lelyyeld, Michelle Obamas press secretary.
Mr. Gore launched his investigation of the First Ladys staff in the wake of an appeared on thelastcrusade.org and Canada Free Press on July 7.

How does this compare with other first lady’s?
It would be interesting to compare to the staff of a smapling of former First Lady’s....
oops - sampling...
Did not see mention of the numbers previous first ladies had.
From the article;
“This amounts to a total of $1,083,700.00. Laura was no piker when it came to spending. But she pales in comparison with Miz Michelle requires eight to ten additional attendants at an extra cost to taxpayers of $700,000 and change - the only change American taxpayers can believe in.”
It’s well worth a read.
(I am not affiliated with the articles I post....I am far too lazy to write articles that no one will read!)
There was an earlier article on this that did compare with previous first ladies back to JFK’s. They had 2 to 6 attendants each.
Any racial preference?
I saw somewhere that Laura had one.
“Any racial preference?”
That’s funny! I wonder...
Judging from those pictures of her at the Grand Canyon, it doesn’t look like she even has one!
Probably white. The same thing Oprah does. They like their servants and underlings to be white.
“Judging from those pictures of her at the Grand Canyon, it doesnt look like she even has one!’
Yeah! She probably just wanders around her kingdom all alone with a bus-pass and a bottle of water.
She has 300,000,000 to add yet. They do not.
1.7 million !!!!!
Come on , that is soooo last decade.
We spend trillions now!!!!
Does the number of attendants include Secret Service security detail and travel personnel? Or is this just the make up artists and various other members of a bureaucratic entourage?
(By the way, I believe “entourage” is French for “bunch of parasites.” Or so I am led to believe by observing the sports and entertainment industries.)
Well I guess when you make it to “the big house” you can do what you want.
