The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The main diff between the Obamaloon and a septic tank is that the tank contains much less sh**.
Even then they barely saw each other. Beards - both of them.
He made a $186K and they couldn’t live on that?
That’s alright. We tax payers should pay for her lack of traveling, along with your daughters and all the family and all the security it takes.
We wouldn’t want her to feel under-privileged.
I think Obama spent more time in the Chicago bath houses than he did “practising law.”
I wonder if she's not “tucked in”.
Working Mom my you know what. It was a payoff. Did she even show up?
How much does Community Organizing pay?
LOL, there are some photos that seem to show that. But it could be one of those strap-on things.
So the 0blahblahs had to scrimp by on a measly $479,062/year. My God, just like Ma & Pa Joad, they had to leave the barren wasteland of Chicago , where Barry was barely scratching out a living organizing, and move to the land of milk and honey in DC.
Maybe we can call this one the Grapes of Trash
Her “job” was pure political patronage. It was created for her and abolished when she left. No real work was involved.
They couldn’t scrape by on 162K/yr,even in Chicago? This is grade A bullshite.
Tell me again how out of touch Romney is. At least he never poormouthed.
geez this guy is freakin’ clueless...
I wonder how many hours a week it took to “handle community affairs”.
I'm willing to bet those two line items alone would have gotten them a first class nanny with $$ to spare.
FWIW, when my daughter was working for a first class nanny agency, she was racking up more frequent flier miles to the Chicago, New York and Bay Areas just interviewing for various jobs than I was working in international business.
Oh, poor babies. He makes it sound like she was flipping burgers at McDonalds. And the shepple nod and wring their hands over this understanding, compassionate leader of all men.
Her job was SO important, and she was SO uniquely qualified for her hospital job that to this very day, they have not been able to fill her rather large shoes. The quid for the pro quo was a job for her in exchange for state funding from him. Welcome to Ill-Annoy, where the secret handshake has something to do with cash crossing one’s palm. The dirty politics have been successfully transplanted to the White Crib. There is always a quid for the pro quo.
If you can get cushy jobs at over $300K a year, she could work 2 months a year and stay home on that $50K for 10 months.
She made 316K? I wonder if any doctors at that hospital made 316K.
It was a slip, he meant to say “Practicing raw”
Im sorry, it was right there, I had to do it....
“and something that could be very difficult on her, because I was gone a lot.”
Well, you were spending a lot of evenings in gay bars when the babies were little. You could have chosen to spend more time at home, but Larry Sinclair and the others beckoned...
That 317K moochelle made in one year, would have lasted 15 years for me. I did the math. Granted if I had two kids, that amount may have lasted maybe 5 years.
Nope, no pity from me.
It’s tough to get by in the mean streets of Hyde Park
And yet, somehow,I have managed to be a stay at home mom for my hubby’s entire military career. And...um...let me tell you, he makes far less than $160,000 a year...and for the past 3 years we’ve been in the DC metro. I wonder how we manage to survive!!! Oh right, no wagyu and lobster parties, no elegant vacations, no Hawaiian Christmas adventures...and darn it, my shoes usually come from Target.
They had it sooooo bad, I feel soooooo sorry for them. I should totally vote for them so I can help dear Queen Michelle continue to stay at home (occasionally) with her kids. Even though another 4 years of them might make it so that I have to get a job, just so that we can eat. NOT
Why didn’t she just trade cattle futures?
She was punished with a kid.
They made $12,000 every two weeks for takehome pay and he is trying to claim he was poor??? Talk about out of touch!
With all due respect, Mr. President, it’s not about “luxury”, it’s about “priority”.
My wife stayed home and raised our children no matter how little money I made to ensure that they didn’t grow up to believe that gov’t was the solution to any of their problems.
My children put their trust in God, hard work, and family. They see their parents as the ultimate authority in their lives, and they see God as the ultimate authority in their parent’s lives.
They know that they will be held accountable for their actions in this life or in the next and they would like to be able to reap the benefits of their hard work and good behavior and not be forced to subsidize the poor judgment and slothfullness of others.
What a well-written post!
Once I was in the state legislature, I was teaching, I was practicing law, I'd be traveling, he said. And we didn't have the luxury for her not to work.
Ha ha ha ha! Hee hee ha ha ha! Oh my goodness, stop, Barack! You're so FUNNY! Ha ha ha ha! That's almost as good as the one you tell about your being a Christian! ROFL!
He's such a bald-faced liar. If you can't make it on $160K, putting you between the top 12% and the top 3% of income earners according to the IRS, YOU ARE DOING IT WRONG.
On her income alone they were the Top 1%.
Really? They couldn’t live on $162,000 and change? Many Americans live on much, much less.
How does he explain that to “his” voters?
She STILL doesn’t take care of the kids...grandma and 100 slaves do.
And we didn’t have the luxury for her not to work.”
But he found the time to assist in the writing of two books about himself
before he was 45, and to get bungholed at every bathhouse along the way.
That’s weird, seems to me I remember articles stating he never actually practiced law. Was he practicing law like he was a law professor? (neither)
Gee . . times wuz hard for the Obamas. . and then, the amount he was making was actually more in real dollars than it is now.
Sigh . . but, you know how it is, it takes a lot when you’ve got champagne tastes. . but, now, like Bill Clinton, he’ll never have to pay another light bill.
Her thighs are too big, that’s as close as she can get!
Not mention the fact that being a Senator has many perks and benefits. $162k goes a lot farther for a Senator than for an average Joe (not that many average Joes make $162k a year.
Michelle only had the $300K job for the two years Barack was in the Senate/running for president. Not that point-of-access-to-hubby had anything to do with it.
The real family finance calculation would take her (much lower) income while he was a state rep. No, they weren’t rich. They were comfortably upper middle class, but I’m sure Barack’s anguish over the price of argula was not feigned.
| Barry -- ''Let me be clear, as clear as mud; I don't know anything about Michelle's 'Patient Dumping' while at the University of Chicago Medical Center.
''Or the doubling of my wife's salary ($317,000) at the hospital through my state senate earmark.
I don't know anything about it.''
Countdown until Jackwagon leaves Office: 286 days as of April 9, 2012.
From what I gather, that position no longer exists. Wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't a job listing like that until she needed to make a ton of loot (or get out of the house).
“I’ve always wondered why moo-chele consistently stands with her legs spread.
I wonder if she’s not tucked in.”
She is just drying off her ‘check book’!
I can understand women who WANT to work even if their husband has a six-figure income, but really... “could not afford” for her not to work.
It is true that people can have financial struggles no matter how much they make because you can always spend more than you make. But a person who simply cannot make it on a low six-figure income doesn’t know how to manage money AND definitely should not be in charge of the world’s largest economy.
