First Lady Michelle Obama Gets Resume From Girl with Jobless Dad
TIME ^ | 04/24/2014

Posted on 04/24/2014 12:46:56 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

Michelle Obama’s annual question-and-answer session with the children of Executive Office employees took a serious turn Thursday when a 10-year-old girl in the front row told the first lady that her dad had been out of work for three years. Then the girl popped up to hand the first lady his resume.

The first lady seemed a little taken aback but then explained to the other children, who might not have heard the girl’s comment, that the matter was “a little private, but she’s doing something for her dad.” Mrs. Obama promised to deal with the matter later.

When the event ended, Mrs. Obama gave the girl, Charlotte Bell, a hug and then reached back to grab the resume off a table as she left the East Room. The first lady played host to the children at the White House on Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.

Charlotte’s family had joked over the weekend about making a job pitch to the first lady, but her parents didn’t know she would give it a try, according to her mother, an executive branch employee who did not want to be identified.

I will FINALLY be proud of my FLOTUS if, in fact, she does something for this family. You know, in the same vein that Mooch is ‘finally’ proud of America for ONCE in her adult life... *Rolleyes*

I’m doubting it, but am hoping to be surprised.

Dad an Obama campaign worker, looking for a “policy” job.

Who wouldn’t like to craft policies?

Oh, the ignorance of youth. A girl whose daddy don’t have no job sends his resume to a woman who was paid $300K per year to persuade Medicaid and no-money, no-income patients to visit the nearest hospital NOT part of the University of Chicago Medical system. That woman?

"...but her parents didn’t know she would give it a try..."

Yeah, right. The girl always carries around a copy of her dad's resume...

She is getting him a job as Obama’s Caddy. The hours are long but she is sure he can handle it.

Looking for a “policy” job? I though he was looking for real work. He probably isn’t qualified for real work or doesn’t want to “lower” himself.

The unidentified mother works in the executive branch and the father was a campaign worker for obozo and can’t land a job. Even in DC???? I think that tells us a lot about the kind of people who volunteered for his campaign. It doesn’t take much more than a breathing body to get a job with the federal government, does it?

This is a repeat from a couple years back when some kid sent a letter to Barry.

They are just going back to the feel good well.

Yes he is destroying jobs as fast as he can.

Nobody can say that this president isn’t working hard at achieving his goals.

I suspect it is theater to humanize Teh Mooch. We’ll know if she scores ‘dad’ a job and there is a news special about it later.

That little girl could disappear! Recalls this joke about a boy asking Obama some questions:

Obama goes to a primary school to talk to the kids to get a little PR. After his talk he offers question time. One little boy puts up his hand and Obama asks him his name.

“Walter,” responds the little boy.”

And what is your question, Walter?”

“I have 4 questions:

First, why did the USA Bomb Libya without the support of the Congress?
Second, why do you keep saying you fixed the economy when it’s actually worse?
Third, why did you say that Jeremiah Wright was your mentor, then said that you knew nothing about his preaching and beliefs?
Fourth, why are we so worried about Brazil drilling for oil, but we aren’t allowed to?”

Just then, the bell rings for recess. Obama informs the kiddies that they will continue after recess.

When they resume Obama says, “OK, where were we? Oh, that’s right: question time.. Who has a question?”

Another little boy puts up his hand. Obama points him out and asks him his name.

“Steve,” he responds.

“And what is your question, Steve?”

“Actually, I have 6 questions.

First, why did the USA Bomb Libya without the support of the Congress?
Second, why do you keep saying you fixed the economy when it’s actually worse?
Third, why did you say that Jeremiah Wright was your mentor, then said that you knew nothing about his preaching’s and beliefs?
Fourth, why are we so worried about Brazil drilling for oil, but we aren’t allowed to?
Fifth, why did the recess bell go off 20 minutes early?

And sixth, what the F**K happened to Walter?”
