I bet some of her servants are white, too. That's gotta piss you guys off.

Well, it's only fair. I'm sure at least 26 of her ancestors...


/dukes up, suckers.

Laura, Hillary, Barbara and Nancy had no servants at all. This is quite a shocking precedent for Michelle to set.

sweetmelissa31: I bet some of her servants are white, too. That's gotta piss you guys off.

I hope she accuses them of stealing silverware all the time too.

At least someone is hiring.

I wonder if one of those staffers proofreads her correspondence, or if she already knows how to spell.

Jealous, subby?
 
2010-01-06 12:12:17 PM  
Sounds awfully uppity of her, frankly.

I would've thought it'd be AT LEAST a year before you were allowed to repeat talking points
 
2010-01-06 12:12:41 PM  
Does this surprise anyone? All of Washington DC--Republicans, Democrats, Independents-- think that we exist solely as a cash machine.
Why shouldn't Michelle live the good life while she's there?
You go girl!

FTFA: 11.Reinstein, Joseph B. (DEPUTY DIRECTOR AND DEPUTY SOCIAL SECRETARY)

Why is his salary not listed? And why is it so low on the column? Is it because he's a man? Is it because he's white? Is it because he's Jewish? I'd be calling the EEOC if I were him so they can start asking some questions. This is wrong on so many levels.

Oh, regarding the servants, Mrs. Obama is probably just setting precedence. As the first African American First Lady, she has the ability to be a pioneer for all future First Ladies, just like Rosa Parks was a pioneer.

Let's play "About the Author."

Paul L. Williams, Ph.D., is the author of such best-selling books as The Day of Islam, The Al Qaeda Connection, Osama's Revenge: The Next 9/11, The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Crusades and The Vatican Exposed.

Osama wants revenge for 9/11? Why?

I don't think that there's any problem with having assistants. The number of assistants might be a bit excessive though.

So what you're saying is that you're dumb enough to believe that no First Lady has had servants in the past?
 
2010-01-06 12:17:43 PM  
I hear that the Obama kids sometimes forget to turn the TV off. My tax dollars are paying for that wasted electricity. This is an outrage!

What did we tell you STUPID LiBS? This is all going as Planned for NOBAMA.

Barbara Bush did her own dishes, and routinely cooked meals for TIP Neil. Nancy REagan, bless her, not only ran a DRUG treatment center out of the whitehouse, she also had time to appear on Different Strokes (with that adorble Gary Willis, mind you) without so much as a driver for her worries.

Laura Bush had to stay behing while GWB cleared brush to keep the cattle fed in the ROSE GARDEN.

I'd say MOBAMA's Mama is clearly out of touch here... you will find out how much come the 2010 midterm elections.

I suppose that if she fired any of them you'd be just as outraged.

F*cking windsocks.

Why does she need servants, her only job is to make Barrak sammiches and give him head.

No actually, I'm saying that I'm not dumb enough to not see sarcasm when I read it.

I don't think so, she's the First Lady. And I bet they're counting people whose job it is to take care of the house.

That 2007 list contains 15 staffers with "first lady" in their job title.

I heard Obama is using a new limo too.

2010-01-06 12:35:52 PM  
Also, Chief of Staff to the first lady with a 6 figure salary is a position you would classify as a "servant"? Really?
 
2010-01-06 12:36:36 PM  
This is right up there w/Hillary firing the Transportation staff in 1992. Republicans were all outraged that she was "cleaning house"--like it's unusual for a new First Lady to put her own staff in place.

Is this substantially more than the norm for a first lady? Is this some kind of unprecedented White House expenditure?

If not, I don't really give a fark.

And honestly, for any first lady, I would not consider press secretaries, or schedulers "servants."

If they're putting on her make-up, and bringing her sammiches... then they're servants. And honestly, if she left the house without perfectly applied make-up or if she was seen making her own sandwich she'd be all over the news for looking trashy and embarassing the US by wasting her time on such menial tasks when she should be doing more stately things.


Damned if you do. Damned if you don't.

I'm not. Never have been. Never will be. Some of my best friends are white, so I wouldn't consider myself racist. However, I'm subtle in my sarcasm.

Hey smitty... there are a lot of much bigger instances of Government pissing money away to get upset about.

This is like biatching about the car that just plowed into you had a crappy paint job.

bulldg4life: Better late than never, right?

It really doesn't make any big difference to me either way. The lady needs a solid staff. However no one should have a problem about someone looking into any expenditures.
 
2010-01-06 12:56:14 PM  
Submitter, you sound tea baggy.

So STFU.

Good point. There was a lot of talk about her being active in many social aspects, you know, helping out and stuff. If this is what she needs to be a more productive First Lady, I can't say I am opposed to the expense. If they're just running for lunch, that is a different story.
 
2010-01-06 01:01:47 PM  
I heard she has aides.
 
2010-01-06 01:02:48 PM  
This is clearly setting a precedent for communism in the United States.
 
2010-01-06 01:05:32 PM  
Funny how Conservatives say Democratic First Ladies have "servants," but the Republican ones have "staff."

Honestly, though...If the worst the Righty 'tards can do is to accuse her of maintaining staffers...just like all of her predecessors...then they've got slightly less than nuthin'. That's why I welcome transparently superficial criticism. Underscores how little there really is to biatch about.

No, it's not the least out of the norm. Also, please note that the first 2 employees are doing double-duty--they're assistants to both Barack AND Michelle.

The First Lady has no official duties but, aside from being the official hostess of the White House, she traditionally takes up a pet charity that is politically neutral. In Michelle's case, she helps out in homeless shelters & soup kitchens, and started the White House Garden & Beehive in order to promote healthy living. So, she travels a lot, sets up a lot of state dinners, gets a ton of mail, she's honorary chair of the Committee for the Preservation of the White House, makes appearances all over the country & abroad, and a whole bunch of other stuff that would require a staff, just like pretty much every First Lady before her.
