Michelle Obama may actually be creating more jobs than her husband, the President. Unfortunately, all of the jobs she has created have apparently been to surround herself with aides to assist her with her tedious job of finally being proud of America. Let’s take a look at this inventive job creator, shall we?
“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. “ Michelle Obama
Back in July, Dr. Paul L. Williams wrote in an article for TheLastCrusade.org that Michelle Obama, First Lady of The United States (FLOTUS) had 22 “attendants” (i.e., paid staff to do everything for her from correspondence to purchasing $600 tennis shoes).
However, in an update, it appears that she has increased that staff to 26. I’m not sure, but that might just beat the number of new jobs created by POTUS Barack Obama.
One thing is certain: Michelle Obama has more “attendants” than any first lady in history. Here’s a breakdown on the majority of them and what they are costing us taxpayers:
- $172,2000 – Sher, Susan (Chief Of Staff)
- $140,000 – Frye, Jocelyn C. (Deputy Assistant to the President and Director of Policy And Projects For The First Lady)

- $36,000 – Jackson, Deilia A. (Deputy Associate Director of Correspondence for the First Lady)
Mmm Mmm Mmm…
Oh, and just a reminder: She doesn’t really have any official duties.
Yep, all hail “the most fiscally responsible administration” as, I believe, the President promised during his campaign.
I wonder how many of Michelle’s assistants have radical backgrounds? We know, based on the choice of her wardrobe, there’s at least one.
