Michelle Obama's Staff and Salaries

By April 11, 2011

Follow me on:

Michelle Obama

You may have heard or read that First Lady Michelle Obama has amassed a paid staff that dwarfs those of her predecessors. Glenn Beck, for example, declared "It's like 43," on his radio show of Feb. 25, 2011, and included "a personal shopper." What?! Is Beck right? Who does work for Michelle Obama and how much do they make? [Learn more...]

She is nothing more than an opportunistic socialist lawyer out to get as much as she can from the taxpayers ! The Obama’s are insults to the White House and to the American People !

I would dread to have suffered the alternative bommer.
You know, the old man and his bimbo.

The “alternative” would not have our country in the pitiful situation it is in now. The Obama’s are an embarassment to our country. The current President, and his entire, ever-changing staff, have never managed a budget. This may explain why they haven’t found it necessary to submit/pass a budget during his reign. They ran on ‘transparency’, but every negotiation has been in secret. Remember how they passed Obamacare? They met, secretly, with members of Congress to threaten, bribe, or do whatever necessary to pass this bloated, beast of a piece of legislation … AGAINST THE WILL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

Our ancestors left their homes to come to a new land to get away from this type of government. We need to make sure their efforts weren’t in vain.

Stand up and fight for the American way of life. All it takes for evil to prevail, is for good men (and women) to do nothing.


Are you better off than you were when Obama was sworn in? No, you’re not. If you’re like most of us: your home value has declined, many of you know have lost your job, your retirement savings (if you have any) is worth less, your health care costs have risen while coverage has decreased (just wait till Obamacare kicks in, you ain’t seen nothing yet).

Give me the old man and his bimbo any day, anytime.

The size of Michelle Obama’s 2010 staff is comparable to the staff of former First Lady Laura Bush in 2008. Both First Ladies had 15 staffers directly under them.
She was a big embarrassment too… Remember?????

I am so appalled. With this country in the financial disaster it is in, I would think that the First Lady would want to cut back on excessive expenses.
It is truly amazing how all of the other First Ladies except Laura Bush and Michelle Obama could get along with 1-3 staff members. Apparently neither one of them give a damn about this country.

The Bush family gave more of their personal time and money to our country than Obama would ever part with!

MO’s betterment programs for kids have been flops and when she speaks she insults anyone with a true thought process in operation. Often when they go on vacation they take separate planes which is extremely costly.

There IS NO comparison to the love of the US that the Bush family puts forth, unlike the division and poor judgments by the Obama’s
