Skip to comments.Michelle Obama slaps ‘corporate’ work, ‘fat paychecks’
Posted on 06/18/2012 9:51:20 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
First lady Michelle Obama took her inspirational family story on the road over the weekend, telling the graduating class of Oregon State University that having a corner corporate office and a big paycheck isnt the prize it looks like when entering the job market.
Success isnt about how your life looks to others, its about how it feels to you, Obama said Sunday, retelling how she and her brother, Oregon mens basketball coach Craig Robinson, grew up in a small Chicago home pushed by parents who said be true to ourselves.
For both, she said, that meant throwing away their corporate suits and trying something different after realizing what they thought was the American dream.
After graduating from college, we did everything we thought we should do to be successful -- Craig went to business school, I went to law school, we got prestigious jobs at an investment bank and me at a law firm. We soon had all the traditional markers of success: the fat paycheck, the fancy office, the impressive lines on our resumés. But the truth is, neither of us was all that fulfilled, said Obama. I was living the dream, but it wasnt my dream. And Craig felt the same way, unbeknownst to me.

Soon, the taxpayers are going to slap her fat paycheck and perks.
That’s real cheeky, coming from someone who doesn’t know what work is.
Hmmmm, what was that wench’s salary when she got that useless job at the hospital as (coincidently, I’m sure) her Obamadork hubby was busy taking kickbacks from local Chicago libs?
Shove it, Moochelle.
You’re even dumber than your hubby.
And man, that’s duuuuuuuuumb!
And her law license was taken away from her for breaking the law. Success in business is not about how people feel about you or how you feel about yourself. It’s about how productive you are. They still don’t get it and never will.
I guess that’s why she “gave” up her law license.
Is "fat paycheck" the new PC euphemism for "derriere?"
"I wanted POWER!! And I couldn't get that POWER myself, I would marry POWER! I would have sycophants everywhere. POWER and PRESTIGE -- THAT would fulfill my life! KNEEL BEFORE ME, PEONS!!!!"
Can you imagine working as a young HLS grad at a big law firm and not being able to think or write any better than as shown in Michelle’s senior thesis at Princeton?
Not only would every sentence of her work have to have been redone by someone else, but it also must have been excruciatingly painful for her to hand it in as a professional contribution.
Assuming she had any self-awareness, that is.

She’s A Democrat. A BLACK DEMOCRAT.
Those were reparations, doncha know.
Are you a RASSISS????
It’s speakers like Mooch that make me glad I skipped my college graduation ceremony. I spent the night before up late, saw a movie, drank some beer and went to bed about 4am. I intentionally slept through the ceremony - because I knew that sleeping in was a far better way to spend my time.
My folks wanted to attend, so I gave them instructions and told them to have a good time. I figured that since I was the one who financed my college degree, this decision was 100% mine to make. After 24 years, I’ve never had a second’s worth of regret.
She could have shared her family history and how her ancestors let the slaves go that they owned...not!
It’s hard to read this without a barf bag or two.....
Did she pull out the box of her fat corporate pay checks?
Pardon me while I power-wretch.
It looks like she left out the part where her getting the “fat paycheck” just happened to coincide with her husband being elected a US Senator ...
