Mrs. Hussein's Staff or Your Tax Dollars At Work

Written by Dr. Paul L. Williams

"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

Mamie Eisenhower : One-- paid for personally out of President's salary.
Jackie Kennedy : One
Roseline 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. Public:

Twenty-Two.. $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.
