Obama spoke to women supporters at a Denver event today ..."...I wanna make sure that when she is getting paid the same as men, I gotta say that First Ladies right now, they don't, even though that's a tough job!"

This woman has spent MILLIONS of dollars of U.S. income taxes on behalf of her PERSONAL vacation trips including South Africa with her own safari; Spain, Copenhagen, Vail, Las Vegas, Honolulu, and London for the Olpmpics plus sending her 13 year old daughter with 12 classmates and 25 Secret Service agents on their own personal trip to Mexico in violation of travel warnings for government employee's family members

Add to that, all the White House parties held for the Obama's entertainment! Now, Obama thinks she should be paid!

NO WAY! (It's not that women don't deserve fair pay for the same job as men, it's that this women has been an absolute parasite when spending our money, not hers!)

(The html is playing crazy, so try this link, OK?)

    Oh she does have plenty of money, she had several hundred thousand in stocks options from her old job as a board member of a vendor for Walmart, she received a generous package from University of Chicago Hospital, and her book deal too.

    Remember this speech?


    What she should have said is, "A whole lot of you are going to have to sacrifice;
    so a few of US may prosper........ like beautiful clothes, wonderful Kobe beef
    parties for our friends and lavish vacations for me, my family, my friends and
    my service people who need to come to wait upon me. After all, I need to look my
    best as 1st lady. Yes, that is what she should have said if she were honest.

    BTW, does anyone have the exact number of people she employs, paid for
    out of the treasury, to be her servants? She has plundered the treasury as much
    as any Roman Caesar did........and eventually Rome went bankrupt.......LOL

    This adds up to a whopping $1,600,700.00 and the amount doesnt include the elite benefit packages granted to the White House staff and their significant others (include same-sex partners). Nor does the figure take into account the salaries for the two additional full-time staff members mentioned by Mrs. Obamas Press Secretary nor the full time hair-dresser and makeup artist assigned to her. A guesstimate of the total salaries for Mrs. Obamas attendants is $1,750,00.00 plus the additional benefits.

    However the claim that other 1st ladies had only 3 or 4 is not true.

    This one left after she allowed someone to crash a party at the W/H,
    but gauging by the number of parties at the W/H, she must have been
    replaced. Deseree seemed to like to party with the guests.

    i haven't said she has 43, but you on the other hand haven't listed
    any 1st Lady to back up this statement you made earlier:http://www.sodahead.c...

    "That's as compared to Laura Bush's staff of 18 during the final year of the G.W. Bush administration (2008).

    Needless to say, it's disingenuous to refer to the size of Michelle Obama's staff as "unprecedented" when virtually all of the existing positions were established during previous administrations."

    You just posted, "I was off by 3 and you wonder why many of us are rude to you conservatives.."

    Let's keep it honest and not just insulting responses........

    You have not answered that question?.......

    MIchelle has 28 employed personal assistants:
    This adds up to a whopping $1,600,700.00 and the amount doesnt include the elite benefit packages granted to the White House staff and their significant others (include same-sex partners). Nor does the figure take into account the salaries for the two additional full-time staff members mentioned by Mrs. Obamas Press Secretary nor the full time hair-dresser and makeup artist assigned to her.
