Laura Bush Responds to Obama Whining About Michelle Not Getting PaidThe Patriot       February 22, 2014

During the 2012 campaign, Obama whined at a campaign event focused on women’s issues in Colorado that Michelle doesn’t receive a salary as First Lady.

An obvious ploy to win over women voters, he said that First Lady is a “tough job” and he wants to make sure “she’s getting paid the same as men.”

Never mind all of the taxpayer-incurred costs that Michelle accumulates doing her “job” as First Lady, which, as we’ve written before, includes taxpayer-funded vacations.

Former First Lady Laura Bush spoke recently to CSPAN on this very issue, and her response is great.

Our friends at IJ Review report:

Quote
In a sneak-peek for a special “First Ladies” interview with C-SPAN, former First Lady Laura Bush responds to a question about whether or not the president’s spouse should get a salary. She replies that she doesn’t “think so,” because “there are plenty of perks.”


 
Furthermore, Mrs. Bush adds that the real question is whether or not a “First Gentleman” or a First Lady might be expected to maintain a career while married to the President of the United States.

Mrs. Bush couldn’t have given a classier or more appropriate response.  Instead of insisting on taking even more money for taxpayers, she noted that the First Family is already living in the lap of luxury with chefs, personal assistants, trips, access to Air Force One, and many other benefits.  Demanding a salary on top of the $1.4 billion it takes to fund the White House each year is just immoral and disgusting.

Help us get the word out about this good reminder to Obama from Laura Bush about how many perks the First Lady has included in her “job” without receiving a salary.

Moochelle could still have her $300k/year no-show job in Chicago, couldn't she?   :shrug:

And think about how much more Laura Bush did as First Lady........ literacy, women's rights (real ones...like in Afghanistan), visiting wounded soldiers, comforting and calming the nation after 9/11, and always with pure CLASS.

Michelle, shut up.  Barry, SHUT UP!
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

She may as well.  Mooch and Barry have always  liked those high-paying jobs for which they don't actually have to do anything or even show up. Even now, BHO isn't doing the "work" of president, ValJar is.

And Laura managed to do that without all the LAVISH vacations too.

How many assistants does Moochelle have?  Isn't it something like 24?  I'll bet she doesn't do the family laundry, clean the toilets, dust the house, etc., etc.  Maybe if she gave a wage to each position that caters to her every whim she might see she's making more than that $300,00 having people serve her.
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

Princess Poopy Pants Marie Antoinette is upset she isn't paid? That just takes the cake.
Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.

And she'll eat that cake, too, as soon as she finishes the ribs and French fries.

It astounds me how the media fawn over Michelle Obama and even worse tried to make her something she is not...Jackie O.













I think the media represents, controls and supports the liberal progressive way but they want their cake and eat it to. They want the radical progressive ideals yet they want to mix-in some Kennedy into it back when the party was less liberal progressive.

First Lady Laura Bush, is truly a class-act, lady. Michelle Obama is a partisan radical.

Excellent pictorial, Gazoo. The most potent propaganda is subtle, inconspicuous. So that you don't even know you're being played.

Yeah, in a side-by-side comparison, Michelle comes off looking like Bullwinkle.

I don't think MO liked the Jackie O costumes.

Remember her big belt stage?  :silly:

Or the bangs. The media stopped the presses for the bangs.
