    Subject: FW: Our First Lady's Staff




    <table style="width: 100%;" class="EC_EC_MsoNormalTable" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr> <td style="padding: 0in; width: 100%;" width="100%"> Jackie Kennedy had a staff of five, Barbara Bush four, two were part time for letters and invitations. You wonder who would approve this huge expense with so many out of work and our economy what it is. Could the two daughters also have a staff. Makes you wonder.

    “In my own life, in my own small way, I have tried to give back to this country that has given me so much,” she said. “See, that’s why I left a job at a big law firm for a career in public service, “ Michelle Obama."

    No, Michele Obama does not get paid to serve as the First Lady and she doesn’t perform any official duties. But this hasn’t deterred her from hiring an unprecedented number of staffers to cater to her every whim and to satisfy her every request in the midst of the Great Recession. Just think Mary Lincoln was taken to task for purchasing china for the White House during the Civil War. And Mamie Eisenhower had to shell out the salary for her personal secretary.

    How things have changed! If you’re one of the tens of millions of Americans facing certain destitution, earning less than subsistence wages stocking the shelves at Wal-Mart or serving up McDonald cheeseburgers, prepare to scream and then come to realize that the benefit package for these servants of Miz Michele are the same as members of the national security and defense departments and the bill for these assorted lackeys is paid by John Q. Public.

    That shrill harpy is only carrying out her big-eared hubby's promise - to "make more jobs"! I guess that's one way of paying off election favors...... [dunno]
