According to Canada Free Press, Michelle Obama has more paid assistants than any First Lady in U.S. history. The total combined salaries of her 26 assistants is $1,750,000 per year paid for by tax payers. That does not include the cost of the lavish benefits package each one also receives.
When compared to past First Ladies, Michelle Obama is so far out of the norm it’s actually stunning.
Hillary Clinton = 3 assistants
Laura Bush = 1 assistant
Jackie Kennedy = 1 assistant
Michelle Obama = 26 assistants
It sounds like Michelle is doing a hell of a lot behind the scenes that we don’t know about to need that many assistants. Congress should look into this and find out what she’s up to.
I know, I know, I’m racist for bringing this up. So be it.
These are the people promising Idiots to save
Tax payers money? 16 Trillion,No Sh*t...
Analysis: It's true that if you include the White House Social Secretary and the various deputies to that position, First Lady Michelle Obama oversees a paid staff of at least 22 people, according to the 2009 Annual Report to Congress on White House Staff.

That's as compared to Laura Bush's staff of 18 during the final year of the G.W. Bush administration (2008).

It's disingenuous, needless to say, to refer to the size of Michelle Obama's staff as "unprecedented" when virtually all of the existing positions were established during previous administrations. It's also disingenuous to refer to the members of that staff as "attendants."

But that's politics, isn't it? Carry on.

As have become usual, the short sighted rhetoric spewed by the morons on the right refuse to accept responsibility for the Taxing polices and naming China the favorite trade partner of America.

America didn't have debt accumulating until George Bush signed into law in 2001 and 2003 those destructive tax policies that lead to people like Romney avoiding legally their tax obligations.

This anti American rhetoric is juvenile, especially when idiots are lobbying charges of which they have no accurate understanding and, or out right lying to defend.

Since the cabal of Bush and Cheney, not a single policy this destruction combination ushered onto the backs of American has been change or altered in any fashion because of the secret conspiracy designed by the Republicans to ensure the complete economic failure of America through obstruction and inactivity in Congress.

There will never be a moment in American history to duplicate the Treasonous Republican Senate Leader, Mitch McConnell proudly touting his goals to assist in the complete demise of the President of the United States which would ensure high unemployment and one Term, his single focus.

McConnell and the members of the Cabal in that meeting should be outed, shackled and quartered. At the very least Hung for Treason and High Crimes against the Citizen of the United States.

You actually saved this post from the 2008 campaign?

How sad and pathetic of you. However, typical of the Republicans and their supporters, they're completely out of ideas and, as always offer no solutions.

You get points for being an unprincipled American and consistency.

If you can find a flux capacitor, I will travel back in time with Michael J Fox, log in to Topix, and complain about Bush, Sure! You wont catch me defending Bush. He made PLENTY of mistakes.
I have never said Bush didn't make mistakes. I will even admit that they affected Obama's presidency...

The real debt crisis started under Reagan and the Dems compromising. The two gutless parties have been compromising and
prodigiously increasing the federal debt ever since. And the majority of the voting public doesn't seem to care.

I applaud your analysis and agree totally. Reagan took America from a Debt of $880 Billion to more than $2.4 Trillion.

That was followed by George H.W Bush who lumped onto that $2.4 Trillion a cool $1 Trillion, and his infamous Son who approved more than $6 Trillion for a grand total just in the last 33 years of over $9 Trillion of the current $15.9 Trillion in National Debt or more than 60% of the nation's debt since George Washington.

Laughable - all the CONS on here think that the economy is all Obama's fault.

Truth is that it wouldn't matter which PRES got in or which PARTY won the Whitehouse last election.........they would have been FORCED to spend all that money to keep the US economy barely afloat - not to mention the world economy.

Any person with any intellect KNOWS that is was the GOP that is mostly to fault for the economy, and there is no way ANY PARTY was going to turn it all around in 3 years. This spiral started with Reagan and the Bushes - Clinton corrected course FAST and the GOP destroyed it all again.

Of course the Dems are better off today. More unemployment benefits, more food stamps, higher gas prices, Emmanuel is Mayor of Thugville, Axelrod now has his millions, Obama is set for life, at our expense. The Dems that count are much better off.

Whenever I hear Ryan defending his speech's lies, I hear that old jack-in-the-box song "all around the mulberry bush... POP goes the weasel" and see Ryan's smirking court jester face.
