FOX News ^ | August 08, 2012 | Barack Obama

Posted on 08/08/2012 1:42:22 PM PDT by LucianOfSamasota

Would a man, who loved his wife, say something like this?

I’ve also heard Michelle say that she married Obama because she knew he’d prove useful.

Do people who love each other say things like this about their spouse?

Well she used to have a 100,000 a year job when he was a State Senator.

Then she got a raise to 300,000 a year job when he became a U.S. Senator.

Their promotion of her was well rewarded because of all the hard work she did for them. OK, not really - they ended up getting a lot of money through crony capitalism.

Apparently she was so good at her job that absolutely NO ONE could fill her shoes - the job was left unfilled when she left to be the FLOTUS.

I agree with Barack Obama in the sense that he and Michelle Obama are worth the same amount to our country.

He should get her on a hospital board and pad some legislation with a federally paid $300,000 a year salary for meeting once a month. He did that as senator; could work again.

If it’s too much send her and her kids back to your mansion in Chicago. No one will miss her and the taxpayers will probably save a bundle.

It’s just like the entitled (Obamas believe being president is a welfare program), they always believe they deserve more. This FLOTUS has spent more taxpayer money than the last 4-5 first ladies combined.

"I gotta say that First Ladies right now, they don't,"

Umm...yes, they do. They get a stipend, as do wives of Senators and Congressmen. And, she and your mother in law owe US for their joyriding around in AF-1, and countless overseas vacation trips.

Yes its a really tough job taking trips all over the world & wearing expensive clothing while the rest of us can’t afford to take even a weekend trip. They are the worse Presidential couple we have had in the history of the United States.

” - - - First Ladies right now, they don’t - - - “

Hmmmmmmmmmm - - - - - ? The use of the plural TWICE in the same sentence, - - - - hmmmmmmmm ?

Well, lemme see now, there’s The First Bitch Michelle, yep, the same one who can’t understand why Americans celebrate “All this for a flag.”

But who is the OTHER “First” Lady? Shouldn’t she be a second, or something?

BTW, does this mean that two First Ladies are paid without being elected?

It is an honor and distinction to be FLOTUS. If that isn’t enough for the “golden” couple let them go back to CHItown. Talk about ungrateful leeches. And don’t get me started on her vacations.

Yeah, it’s a tough job all right, at least for Moochelle. I just read The Amateur. She spends all day working out, picking out clothes, playing with makeup, and deciding on her next vacation destination, and according to sources, she wants to make the most of it while she can, the disgusting grifter.

Can’t see why anyone would want to pay Moochelle, given the extraordinarily crappy job she’s doing as First Lady. It’s not like there are very many stringent requirements associated with her “job,” but she fails spectacularly in meeting what few there may be.

No, and no. Edward Klein, in his book The Amateur, says that Obama didn’t even want to marry her. She browbeat him into it because she thought he was going places. He also says the press has shamefully portrayed their marriage as wonderful, when it’s really anything but.

If he thinks she is “working” it would be better if the nice lady just stopped doing it. (We did not elect her to anything, anyway.)

Let us see, remembering that you have to look at the situation of the FAMILY, not just each member. As POTUS, Obama earns a $400,000 annual salary, along with a $50,000 annual expense account, a $100,000 nontaxable travel account and $19,000 for entertainment. The Family lives rent-free, has no worries about medical care, security, child care or household staff. Vacations can be taken at Camp David without any personal costs. Finally, the retirement following is a very good inflation adjusted pension with continuing health care and security as well as opportunities for both adults to work for years (given their current young ages).

So, am I concerned with the FLOTUS not given a salary? Not hardly!

That would be a guttersnipe from Chi town who collects kickbacks from all of her overpaid and under worked staff.

She takes $500,000 African safaris with the kids.
She wears $2700 sweaters.
She's taken on $15,000 dates to NYC via Air Force One.

These people live in their own reality; Moochelle Obama gets paid and she gets paid handsomely.

Any First Lady duties or responsibilities are voluntary and done for the success of her husband—who stands to make $100M+ after his term is over.

Had we a bachelor/bachelorette prez, he/she wouldn’t go out filling a FL position.

Jeesh!

Wow she makes no salary? Oh the shame.
How does she pay for all those vacations?
How does she pay for all those expensive clothes?
How does she pay for the staff that surrounds her and kisses her butt?
Oh that’s right we pay for it through our hard work, but poor Michelle she get no salary doing the hard job of spending tax dollars.

Taxpayer funded world travel & vacations, except to muslim countries of course where Obama can't take her.

Gifted designer clothes and shoes.

And how many taxpayer assistants?

Personal chef, taxpayer funded groceries.

Mooch is getting far more of her share!

That 325K+ make work ‘job’ that the Mooch had in Chicago was SO important that when she left, the job also went ‘poof’.
