« It's Ryan | Main | Pelosi Claims Spirits Spoke To Her In The White House »

Employment Open

So, President Obama is now complaining that his wife, Michelle, doesn't get paid* as First Lady. Well, if she needs some extra spending money for her next lavish vacation, maybe she should consider updating one of these, and, you know, sending it out:

Have a nice weekend and post what you like.

Paying the first lady for performance of all her ceremondial duties isn't such a bad idea.

FLOTUS has no official duties.

I don't know now. I just don't think it is right for the rich to be getting richer while the poor are getting poorer. I mean the family as a whole are multi millionaires. Seems to me enough is enough. How much money does one family need. Seems to me that barry could easily up her personal allowance by about 10k a week if she is beginning to have problems with her personal expenditures. What do you think windy?

Her husband is WAY over-paid and now we're going to pay her? When does the insanity stop?

Barry is yearning for the good old days, back when Michelle was hauling in $300,000/yr for a bogus non-job at the University of Chicago hospital, a job so needless that the position was eliminated as Michelle moved up in the political world.

No wonder she says being First Lady is hell. Where's the dough for doing nothing?

Well, he did say "you" , not "we".

Link is to youtube, Obama saying "at a certain point you have made enough money".

August 11, 2012 at 10:21 | Registered CommenterDuff, man

Of course he said "you" Duff. This fool is going around complaining about millionaires writing out fat checks to Romney's campaign while his millionaire friends are doing the same for him. I'll give him one thing, this dude has bigger balls than Godzilla when it comes to feigning self righteousness and pointing the finger at others for doing nothing more than what he himself is doing, and wanting. Need more money for michele? Hell yeah, why not. Meanwhile, everyone else who happens to have millions just need to be satisfied. As for the poor, well, he'll take care of them with our money. No problem. He's got it all figured out perfectly just like any good stalinist would.

I love the Ryan pick. The Veep debates should be hysterical with "Slo Joe" talking about the budget.

August 11, 2012 at 15:17 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

I love this. You guys have gotten your wonderboy on the ticket and all you can do is sit around and whine and cry about Obama.

August 11, 2012 at 16:43 | Registered Commenterkwawk

Complaining about Obama trying to sink the country seems to be a logical thing to do.

Wonderboy Ryan. I like it. He may not be right about everything, but he's pretty darn good. Like Tom, I'm looking forward to the debates and Ryan's other public appearances.

August 11, 2012 at 16:56 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Recklessly spending our money isn't enough for her?

I love this. You guys have gotten your wonderboy on the ticket and all you can do is sit around and whine and cry about Obama.

Certainly you know how things work around here by now Kwawk.... but in case your memory is foggy, usually somebody posts an open thread, often times earlier in the week and hidden in the background awaiting it's scheduled post time.

Ryan wasn't even picked then.

Michelle spent only a few years as an actual lawyer, then surrendered her law license for some reason (saving the $289 annual fee seems a bit far-fetched as a reason, given the Obama's standing as wealthy 1%-ers, but we'll never know for sure), and then she segued into various public sector jobs with vague titles, doing precisely what we do not know. Assistant Commissioner of Planning, Associate Dean of Student Services, Executive Director of Community Affairs, Vice President of Community and External Affairs (the $300,000 gig) -- nice meaningless titles, perfectly suited for a left-wing community organizer and activist like Michelle.

Michelle and Barry were hauling in a million buck a year before he became president. The complaints from Barry about Michelle not getting paid, and her complaint that being first lady is hell, ring hollow to the rest of us out here in the real world. Such ridiculous comments are particularly offensive to those of us who really do build our businesses, create jobs, and pump money into the economy, things that non-productive left-wing leeches like the Obamas will never honor or respect.

I see George Soros is getting married... to a women about 40 years younger than him. Pics were posted this weekend of the happy couple. Doesn't the future Mrs Soros (real nameamiko Bolton) just look so excited to be the woman waking up next to him every day?

Truly the look of a woman who sees him as the 12th most attractive man in America. (lol)

Found this article from one of the Quad Cities' local papers interesting for one simple reason: It's racist to ask people get an ID to vote (months in advance mind you) however it's perfectly okay to demand Obama's supporters to drive halfway across town to pick up a free ticket from Obama HQ first if wishing to attend a public event on the other side of town a couple days later (?)

I'm definitely going to have to go see what's going on there. They're probably checking people's voter registrations there. Wonder if they'll allow me to attend if they realize I'm an evil Republican? How does this work? If they don't give me a ticket, do I declare racism or suppression?

Lord help me if they ask me for my ID, lol. That would put me in stitches.

Can't help myself, had to come back to the open thread to see if any of you caught this play-by-play of a very confused Irish announcer during an Olympic sailing race.

Sounds like he's few pints into his cups, and his language is not at all pure, so those with delicate sensibilities should not follow the link.

But is is very funny.

Before you work on saving money, you must clearly understand what you would like to receive and then start debugging the amount.
