"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 from her husband's salary.
Total Personal Staff members for other first ladies paid by taxpayers:
Mamie Eisenhower: One-- paid for personally out of President's salary.
Jackie Kennedy: One
Rosaline Carter: One
Barbara Bush: One
Hilary Clinton: Three
Laura Bush: One
Michele Obama: Twenty-two

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 Ms
Michelle are the same as members of the national security and defense
departments and the bill for these assorted lackeys is paid by YOU, John Q.
Michele Obama's personal staff:
1. $172,200 - Sher, Susan (Chief Of Staff)
2. $140,000 - Frye, Jocelyn C. (Deputy Assistant to the President and
Director of Policy And Projects For The First Lady)
3. $113,000 - Rogers, Desiree G. (Special Assistant to the President
and White House Social Secretary for Mrs. Obama)
4. $102,000 - Johnston, Camille Y. (Special Assistant to the President
and Director of Communications for the First Lady)
5. $100,000 - Winter, Melissa (Special Assistant to the President and
Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)
6. $ 90,000 - Medina , David S. (Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First
7. $ 84,000 - Lilyveld, Catherine M. (Director and Press Secretary to
the First Lady)
8. $ 75,000 - Starkey, Frances M. (Director of Scheduling and Advance
for the First Lady)
9. $ 70,000 - Sanders, Trooper (Deputy Director of Policy and Project
for the First Lady)
10. $ 65,000 - Burnough, Erinn (Deputy Director and Deputy Social
11. $ 64,000 - Reinstein, Joseph B.(Deputy Director and Deputy Social
12. $ 62,000 - Goodman, Jennifer R. (Deputy Director of Scheduling and
Events Coordinator For The First Lady)
13. $ 60,000 Fitz, Alan O.(Deputy Director of Adance and Trip Director
for the First Lady)
14. $ 57,500 - Lewis, Dana M. (Special Assistant and Personal Aide to
the First Lady)
15. $ 52,500 - Mustaphi, Semonti M. (Associate Director and Deputy Press
Secretary To The First Lady)
16. $ 50,000 - Jarvis, Kristen E. (Special Assistant for Scheduling and
Traveling Aide To The First Lady)
17. $ 45,000 - Lechtenberg, Tyler A. (Associate Director of
Correspondence For The First Lady)
18. $ 43,000 - Tubman, Samanth a (Deputy Associate Director, Social
19. $ 40,000 - Boswell, Joseph J. (Executive Assistant to the Chief Of
Staff to the First Lady)
20. $ 36,000 - Armbruster, Sally M. (Staff Assistant to the Social
21. $ 35,000 - Bookey, Natalie (Staff Assistant)
22. $ 35,000 - Jackson, Deilia A. (Deputy Associate Director of
Correspondence for the First Lady) Total $1,591,200 in annual salaries

There has NEVER been anyone in the White House at any time who has created
such an army of staffers whose sole duties are the facilitation of the First
Lady's social life.

One wonders why she needs so much help, at taxpayer expense.

Note: This does not include makeup artist Ingrid Grimes-Miles, 49, and
"First Hairstylist" Johnny Wright, 31, both of whom traveled aboard Air
Force One to Europe ...

Yes, I know, The Canadian Free Press had to publish this, perhaps because
America no longer has a free press and the USA media is too scared that they
might be considered racist or suffer at the hands of Obama.

Sorry America !

If you think you're too small to make a difference, you haven't been in bed
with a mosquito.
