From The Canadian Free Press...which is giving us Conservatives a lot of information lately that Americans aren't hearing here in our own country, have you noticed that?
First Lady Requires More Than Twenty Attendants
“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.
Your tax dollars at work. Next up, 34 czarettes?

Z: I found the above piece from Canada curious and wanted to share it after I'd found out the norm for First Ladies....so I asked a dear friend who worked very near the top at the White House under Ronald Reagan; she tells me that First Ladies usually have about 3 working for them directly, with others permanently in the White House overseeing big dinners, etc. The number above is outrageously out of proportion to past First Ladies. I'd not have printed this without that clarification. (I have to admit I like the new Michelle Obama haircut...) oh, I also find the white lines on this post curious, but whatever...I told y'all I'm no techie! xx
