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.
what was that wenchs salary when she got that useless job at the hospital as (coincidently, Im sure) her Obamadork hubby was busy taking kickbacks from local Chicago libs?
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 ...
Well I didn’t get drunk but was working the day they had ceremonies. I never had any intentions of going anyway, had already told them to send it in the mail.
Moochelle is the new Freddy the Freeloader.
She ought to know what a ‘fat paycheck’ is. She ‘worked’ at a cushy job in hospital administration as the wife of a ‘community organizer’..
Between the two of them holding ‘appointed’ jobs in consequence of their connection to the Democratic political machine, ‘fat paychecks’ were the norm!
It's good to be the Queen.
Now hush yo' mouff about all their globe trotting and Wagoo beef meals, lowly serf.
How about all the debt they accumulated until Ayres book about bo en”riched” them. I remember her whining about not being able to keep up with only about a 200 thousand dollar joint income. The nerve of some people is never ending.
I despise her and her commie husband. Normal people volunteer or give e to charity if they feel guilty. These people want to impoverish all of us. They re vile and demented.
Average salary and benefits of Government workers; $ 125,000.
Damn them fat private pay checks and benefits.
Does anybody know a Unionized Public school teacher that makes LESS than $65,000. and has benefits out the wazoo including full pensions at 55 years of age for life?
I hate this lying POS and her switch hitting husband!
That’s certainly a fat payoff.
As I recall, her brother was fired by Oregon for stinking the house out and then rehired after Obama sent Stimulus Money to the school.
I saw on Fox Business Wall Street 35 Million to Roomey
4.7 Million to Obama is donations
Like expensive designer clothes and boob belts or travel the world on the taxpayer dime....shame on Michelle Obama! Ms. Obama gets the anti-Capitalism message out loud and clear.
What is really clear is that Michelle is an elitist telling American youth not to try so hard for a rich life like hers, just settle for "Feeling good" will be fine - that is all the success you need, the government will take care of you. A conservative would tell you to go to work and work hard.....you know the rest.
And their payment to her was well worth their money - because whatever she was or was not doing for $300,000 a year (nothing too important as nobody now is currently doing what she supposedly did); they got a HUGE return on investment when 0bama was doling out the money from his “stimulus”.
——It’s good to be the Queen.-——
Some call it “giving back to the community.”
Good and hard, I’d say.
When is the last time first wookie met and actually knew an ordinary American that draws a coporate paycheck?
??? I mean actually KNOW one, just one, in current days. Not some from her fantasy world.
Didn’t Michelle make over $300,000 working at a hospital in Chicago?
That fat beast got $300,000 a year for nothing other than influence her feminine little Senator husband to route millions of tax payer money to a Chicago hospital in a Ponzi scheme.
She thinks we al;l forgot about her and her job of sending the poor and uninsured to another hospital.
I wonder how she salved her conscience about that.
Oh!! I forgot. she has no conscience.
Doesn’t she realize that everyone can’t live the way she and Barack do, as parasitic grifters, sucking the lifeblood of working class taxpayers?
I wonder if part of her "inspirational story" was the $380,000/year "directory of diversity." job created for her by the University of Chicago after her arrogant ignorant ass of a husband was elected to Kongress. BTW after she collected the salary for a while she quit the job and the University of Chicago got rid of the position thus making it even more obvious that it was a political payoff to the 0's. (like there was ever any doubt in anyone's mind)
Exactly correct. Every job has a value to a company, regardless of what an employee feels he/she is worth. It’s important to people to understand what that value is. If they don’t like what the company determines that value is, go some place else.
They live as parasitic grifters, sucking the lifeblood of working class taxpayers.
But some of us have to work, create and produce or there wouldn't be any hosts for parasites like them to bleed.
