    How much would they have to pay you to work for her? I suspect she would make Simon Legree look like Santa Claus.

    Probably pretty good now that for the first time in her life she is proud to be an American

    I suspect it would be very expensive to take a 4 year job in DC. I'd want at least $90k.

    I guess Michelle has found out this country ain't so "mean" after all. After all, she's living high on the backs of us taxpayers. Pretty nice gig.

    while the countries being drained dry.
    and what about the rest of us who are paying for this and can't afford to live ourselves, it costs to live no matter where you live.

    I wonder how her staff expenses compare with those of Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton as First Ladies.

    Now this would be an interesting bit of info. However, I would like to see the same for all 1st Ladies from, say, Bess Truman, thru today - As well as the cost for their pet projects.

    The only one of these that I'm remotely acquainted with is the "BEAUTIFICATION" of the nations highways by Lady Bird, (at least IIRC, it was her) and the almost comical implementation of at least part of same.

    But again, IIRC, each and every one their pet projects that naturally came from the public till.

    I don't care who spends the money, it's waste at tax payers expense. Now someone post a link proving she spends less on staff then previous first ladies.

    Apparently Laura Bush's staff expenses were $561,325


    Seems Michelle is a little high maintenance, at our expense.

    I once read, when Reagan was president, that they bought their own food, if they had a dinner party(or whatever, personal guests) they paid for it themselves, the only time the tax payers paid for it was when it was a more offical, political dinner in the white house. Now how much her personal staff was I don't know.

    Agreed, but it would also need to be shown in actual dollars and then adjusted for inflation.

    As for Lady Bird's project, that is not staff expense, and I don't know if it was a national project or not...but if you have ever driven the highways in Texas during spring, you cannot beat the beauty of the bluebonnets and indian paintbrushes growing everywhere.

    The Czar in chief promised change with a difference. Now we know what he meant.
