Michelle's entourage ?

Subject: Michelle's entourage
If this is true, it is disgraceful.
I hope it's not true, it makes me painfully sick! This reminds me of the Obama's family vacation to India that reportedly cost US taxpayers 200 MILLION dollars a day with the entourage he took with him. At a time when millions of US citizens are having a hard time just feeding their families! How could the lowest of the low justify that behavior....????? If the stories are true, they should be tried in court and put in jail for abuse of the system. PERIOD
The guy Chris Hedges seems to nail Obama 100%. He seems to be one of the few that is not afraid of being labeled racist for telling-it-as-it-is with Obama. After reading some of Hedges columns, I have a bad feeling all these stories are true..... BALHHH
I wonder if this is true...

This is a huge slap in the face of the American people who have suffered for years at the hands of the bankers AND our deplorable government!!! Everyone in the country is tightening their belts and cutting expenses just to survive while those responsible, live an over the top extravagant lifestyle. Shame on all of you!!!
Your money at work!
Wow, what a compassionate person!
Why don't they show this on the TV news???
"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 the 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 Mrs. 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:

Michele Obama's personal staff:

One.. $172,200 - Sher, Susan (Chief Of Staff)
Two.. $140,000 - Frye, Jocelyn C. (Deputy Assistant to the President, and Director of Policy And Projects For The First Lady)
Three.. $113,000 - Rogers, Desiree G. (Special Assistant to the President, and White House Social Secretary for Mrs. Obama)

Five.. $100,000 - Winter, Melissa (Special Assistant to the President, and Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)
Six.. $90,000 - Medina, David S. (Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)

Twenty-One... $35,000 - Bookey, Natalie (Staff Assistant)
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.
Why doesn’t someone in Congress blow the whistle on the Obama’s extravagance, and prompt an investigation? What a sorry lot we have in D.C.!!
