Michelle Obama: First Lady Of Spending Taxpayer Money

During Obama’s latest venture into fantasyland, he opined about income inequality for women, saying, “It’s time to do away with workplace policies that belong in a ‘Mad Men’ episode.” That’s rich. This is the same person who had the audacity to complain that Michelle Obama did not receive a salary for her First Lady duties. (Obama Complains Michelle Doesn’t Get Salary As First Lady; 8/8/12; breitbart.com/Big-Government)

He continued on that occasion by saying “I want to make sure that when she’s [i.e., Michelle’s] working she’s getting paid the same as men, I gotta say that First Ladies right now don’t [get paid], even though that’s a tough job!”

And as Dr. Paul Williams noted, who can forget Michelle Obama saying: “In my own life, in my own small way, I have tried to give back to this country that has given me so much. See, that’s why I left a job at a big law firm for a career in public service.” (First Lady Now Requires 26 Servants; 8/17/09) Ironic, isn’t it, this coming from the woman who said she hadn’t been proud of America her entire life until after her husband cashed in on the presidential lottery ticket, er, I mean, she said until after he was elected. But I digress.

Obama unfathomably sang the blues that Michelle Obama didn’t get paid for her duties “even though that’s a tough job.” But he omitted the fact that she has twenty-six attendants (i.e., staff) at an annual cost to taxpayers of $1,750,000. That includes a hair dresser and the same make-up artist Oprah uses who charges $15,000 per day for his services. Actually I’m surprised she didn’t try to put her daughters on her payroll insofar as she lied and named them as staff when she took her taxpayer-funded African safari where she ate her way through the jungle.

Then there was the DailyMail.co.uk story that revealed just how hard it is for Michelle in her life as a public servant in the role of First Lady, “Michelle Obama Accused Of Spending $10m In Public Money On Vacations.” This included “expensive massages, top shelf vodka, and five-star hotels.” The article, which was written in August 2011, reported that she had “spent $10 million of U.S. taxpayers’ money on vacations alone in the past year. Branding her ‘disgusting’ and ‘a vacation junkie’, they say the [then] 47-year-old mother-of-two has been indulging in five-star hotels, where she splashes out on expensive massages and alcohol. The ‘top source’ told the National Enquirer: ‘It’s disgusting. Michelle is taking advantage of her privileged position while the most hardworking Americans can barely afford a week or two off work.” (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2029615/Michelle-Obama-accused-spending-10m-public-money-vacations.html)

The DailyMail article quoting a source specifically noted, “Michelle also enjoys drinking expensive booze during her trips. She favours martinis with top-shelf vodka and has a taste for rich sparkling wines. … The vacations are totally Michelle’s idea. She’s like a junkie. She can’t schedule enough getaways, and she lives one to the next — all the while sticking it to hardworking Americans.” There were the separate presidential jets that had them arrive 4 hours apart on the same day for their lavish Martha’s Vineyard vacation at a substantial cost to taxpayers. A vacation where she ate, drank, and spent, as Obama was reported to have read books “about porn kings and gangsters…as [the Libyan crisis erupted].” (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2028888/Obama-reads-porn-kings-gangsters-Marthas-Vineyard-Libya-crisis-erupts.html)

Alan Pappas writing for the dailycaller.com wrote, “Taxpayers spent $1.4 billion on everything from staffing, housing, flying, and entertaining President Obama and his family last year, according to the author of a new book on taxpayer-funded presidential perks.” (http://dailycaller.com/2012/09/26/taxpayers-spent-1-4-billion-on-obama-family-last-year-perks-questioned-in-new-book/)

The author of the referenced book, “Presidential Perks Gone Royal” notes that while “Obama isn’t the only president to have taken advantage of the expensive trappings of his office…the amount of money spent on [this] first family, he argues, has risen tremendously…and needs to be reined in.”

First Lady is not an elected position, nor does it carry any official duties. And yet Obama opines about his wife not getting paid and compares her life to that of ordinary working women. Of note is also the fact that Michelle shares in the family’s annual income stream of $44,000 per month. And that is on top of all the lavish perks mentioned above, and the countless lavish perks that I didn’t mention in which she indulges herself. Suffice it to say there’s about as much correlation to her not receiving a salary and the supposed income disparity of women as there is a correlation between the income of Bill Gates and an illegal-alien-kitchen worker.

So, why am I mentioning this? I’m mentioning it because Michelle, as the SOTU address approached, was seeking $10 donations to supposedly help protect obamacare. The day before the SOTU address, she sent fundraising emails to supporters to “help protect obamacare.” The money is to be used to help liberal candidates who, if elected, will make sure obamacare continues as the giant Ponzi scheme it is intended to be.

My point is that with all of the over-the-top, lavish spending she engages in let her donate her own money to help candidates. Let her take some of the nearly $700 million dollars we paid for the obamacare website and donate that.

And people think I’m being hyper-critical when I condemn the behavior of Michelle Obama. I’m not being hyper-critical; I’m standing up for America.

    can't back any of it up with other than uniformed-biased quotes, conservative publications…not a single fact present. One should really invest the time to include facts, even if they don't support your prejudice.

    • Mychal Massie May 27, 2014 at 1:18 pm #

      karen gentile: interesting the only time people like you call for facts is when one of your neo-leninist icons is exposed…that said the supporting data was included and spare me your puerile petulance…

    America elected this jackass twice! Not once, TWICE!!!!!!!!!!!! No wonder he thinks he can pull the wool over our eyes. Look at all of the idiots who supported him!!! I can proudly say I voted for him neither time! I'm no fool! I saw this coming a mile away!!!

    Bravo, Mychal. Kudos to you for standing up for America and her taxpayers. The Obamas have been living like royalty, at our expense. As if they have no idea for whom they work. Their behavior is deplorable and shameful.

    To those who point at other first ladies, what, that makes it right? We're printing more and more money to cover our debts, and she's spending it, while her husband's financial worth has gone up more than 400% since he took office? How's that work?

    • Mychal Massie May 20, 2014 at 12:03 pm #

      j. conrad guest: you are spot on my friend…I have often written the exact question you proffer…how does a person enter office one step from poverty and leave office a multi-millionaire…and this couple has taken spitting in our face to unparalleled heights…

  5. Lisa Hornsby May 14, 2014 at 6:14 am #

    Get this ..Barbara Bush traveled 212 times out of the country during their two term comapred to Michelle Obama…haters gonna hate.

    • Mychal Massie May 14, 2014 at 1:10 pm #

      lisa hornsby: even if that were true…the numbers do not lie no first lady in history has been as reckless with American people’s money as the obama woman…the numbers are quantifiable…she is on pace to spend a billion dollars in travel and lascivious living…it should also be mentioned that other first ladies frequently spent their own money and they didn’t falsify their own children as senior aides for the specific reason of not having to pay for their costs out of their own pocket…the obama woman should have been indicted for that alone…and since you brought it up Mrs. Bush wasn’t flying around on the taxpayers dime so she could carry on an illicit adulterous relationship with a member of her secret service detail…but being the informed person you would like to think you are…I’m betting you didn’t know that…who’s the hater…you are for trying to deflect righteous indignation and cast it as hate…

    • J. Conrad Guest May 19, 2014 at 8:52 am #

      Lisa Hornsby, get this: Barbara’s husband, George Herbert Walker Bush, was in office for only one term. Please cite your source for this alleged 212 trips out of the country, because I couldn’t find it. Barbara Bush often traveled with her husband and even the vice president to perform first lady duties. Michele is simply a party girl, going on lavish vacations, staying at five-star hotels and drinking expensive vodka.

    I can't wait for the posting of all the spending reports of other presidents and their families over the last several decades, given that the deficit is way down under this president (facts only, please) and those before him raised the debt. Don't believe it? Can you handle the truth? Try it sometime. I can be very liberating.

  12. Kyle Schlapkohl March 18, 2014 at 1:23 pm #

    Every time I read about this overweight "health nazi" spending our money it pisses me off. Especially since liberals will always say that other presidents spent more. If you contextualize it though, the other presidents didn't spend money during a time where a large number of Americans were in need. This president just doesn't care and the only work he does is preparing for his next million dollar vacation.

    If we HAD to have a black president, why couldn't we get Herman Cain instead?

    • Mychal Massie March 18, 2014 at 2:42 pm #

      kyle schlapkohl: overweight health nazi indeed…and the other presidents didn’t spend more…that is untrue…that said I still support Herman Cain…

  14. Jeffery Meche February 3, 2014 at 9:24 pm #

    Mr. Massie,

    The truth hurts, but that is exactly what this country needs today. You and I know that this deteriorating of our country didn’t start 6 years ago, although it has been excellerated at mach speed during those last 6. There is a dark agenda that is corroding our country from the inside-outward.
    This is my first visit to your sight and I have to tell you that I have been inspired. To know that there are others that feel the same way that I do. I believe that the mainstream Americans are sick and tired of the administrations divisional propaganda, the media circus, the stereotyping of people, the criticizing of Religion and followers, the promotion of same sex and bi-racial relationships, satanic memorials, etc…..
    I will visit in the future to get your insight and word, I will also pass on to friends and family, good luck, stay passionate, and keep up the good fight…………

    While some people may have had a president and first lady, I haven’t had one since November of 2008. She works so hard, does she? I guess it takes a lot of work for her to look good. I know. That was sarcastic. I just wonder why she doesn’t spend time doing something about human trafficking or the plight of the elderly or the 92% unemployment among young black men in Chicago. There are so many good causes she could participate in as her position as first lady. But, she calls herself a public servant. She only serves Michelle.

    If one watches carefully, anywhere, anytime, any news network or entertainment media, and the camera catches MO in an unguarded moment, which amazingly enough happens often, there is for all the world to see, the face of a very angry, self-indulgent, America-hating, self-absorbed, even frightening, woman. All the expensive Hollywood elite make-up artists, fashion designers, and over-priced hair dressers…cannot hide that fact. That level of acrimony in facial expression, manner, voice, body language, cannot ever be truly disguised or hidden from those on the other side of her face.

      Oh yes….that hateful evil look can be seen everywhere she is, especially if she doesn’t think the camera is watching her. The only ’cause’ these two are involved in is their OWN cause. It’s all about them….gimme, gimme, gimme. This country can’t give enough to ever satisfy those egos. Hatrid for America permeates everything they do and it’s so obvious. I remember seeing a copy of their tax return and the pittance they have given to any charity. One person was absolutely correct….why can’t they help all the children in Chicago work on a better life. There are so many positivie things that need to be done for this country, however, we’ll never see any of that while the exalted one is in power. Their motto is ‘divide and hope we can conquer’. So very, very sad we have let our country come to this.

    Mychal, America is at a crossroads. We can no longer allow these ambitious feminist feline, liberal Democrat first ladies like Michelle Obama to usurp power while they continue to misuse our hard earned dollars on their own self-serving. political ambitions!

    The Obama’s will go down in history as the most arrogant president & first lady in the history of our nation! Sadly, most Americans still don’t get it. They are so mesmerized into celebrating the symbolic notion of our nation “doing the right thing” in eradicating the racial wrongs of our historical past by elevating an extremely irresponsible, biracial enemy of the state into the office of the U.S. presidency!

    Yes, Mychal, you ARE standing up for America, and we cherish that determination in you!!!

    Where to start? First, with the amount of money Michelle spends on make up and hair, she should look a heck of a lot better than she does! Of course, corrective cosmetic and dental surgery is what she needs first and foremost. Next, why should we foot the bill and pay this ungrateful hag for going on vacation? Or for telling us how and what to eat? For that matter, why should we pay Barry anything for his endless rounds of golf, vacationing and campaign speeches? He seems to be averse to doing real work, what he was elected to do, and avoids being in the Oval Office, or communicating with Congress. The only thing royal about this couple is the royal duping that America got when he was elected.

    Thank you for your on-target and fearless analysis of the Obamas and all that is wrong with them. I stand with you, as you stand up for America!

    I wonder how many ladies-in-waiting look after The Queen, and how much they are paid. I wonder how much the ladies-in-waiting to the other real queens, empress, princesses cost tem. Royal courts are always extravagant. I saw somewhere that Herself (HRM the Queen) was down to her last million of operating expences. Oh, before I forget, Herself pays a lot of her expences out of her own pocket—which Michelle Obama hardly ever does.

    All of this behavior from the same ideologues that condemned Nancy Reagan for possessing a high-end set of chinaware that she used on her White House dining room table. The chinaware was a PRIVATE gift from a PRIVATE friend and instead of having the taxpayers pay for chinaware, Nancy Reagan used her own PERSONAL set.

    But Nancy Reagan was none-the-less vilified in our socialist, left-wing media for having "nice things" that ordinary people can not have.

    Why the duplicity? Because conservatives actually HAVE a moral standard in which to be judged by. Leftists do not. Leftists use the "anything goes/ if it feels good it's right" mantra to justify undermining a Christian nation and once they have possession of that nation they bolt everyone down in politically-correct legalism so rigid that Nazi Germany may be a fond memory by comparison.

    Leftists hate God, Jesus Christ, Jews and Christians. They hate their morality, their standards, their claim that God is the Supreme Authority of the Universe–NOT the leftist state. It's really that simple.
