There used to be a time when the first lady of the country handled herself with class. From her inappropriate fashion choices to her obnoxious eye rolling, it isn’t hard to see that Michelle Obama isn’t concerned with being a respectful first lady. Michelle Obama even complains about the title she holds. She onceÂ compared living in the White House to living in a prison. One would think that the millions of taxpayer dollars she uses to go on an outrageous number of vacations would be enough, but apparently not.
Obama has said in the past that he thinks that Michelle should get paid for being the first lady.
Let me tell you, now, Michelle would point out First Ladies get paid nothing. (Laughter.) So thereâ€™s clearly not equal pay in the White House when it comes to her and me. But before we were in the White House, I wanted to make sure Michelle got paid as much as she could. (Laughter.) I want a big paycheck for Michelle. (Laughter.) That wasnâ€™t a womenâ€™s issue. If she had a bigger paycheck, that made us able to pay the bills. (Applause.) Why would I want my spouse or my daughter discriminated against? That doesnâ€™t make any sense.
So this should be a no-brainer. And hopefully weâ€™ll â€” weâ€™re just going to keep on pushing until the light bulb goes off above the heads of some of these Republican friends of mine.
At another campaign event he said,
â€œI want to make sure that when sheâ€™s working sheâ€™sÂ getting paid the same as men,â€ Obama said. â€œI gotta say that First Ladies right now donâ€™t [get paid], even though thatâ€™s a tough job!â€
Let’s just take a moment and compare that to what Laura Bush said on the subject.
You may ask, why bring this up now? It’s because the stark difference in attitude of these two woman symbolizes just how far America has fallen. Â Laura Bush reflected the love and pride the majority of hard working Americans had for this country. She believed that a person should only be paid if they work. Michelle Obama believes that she deserves a paycheck, plus perks, for simply existing. We call that the “liberal mentality. I fear now the majority of Americans reflect characteristics of Michelle Obama, ungrateful in nature with a contempt for American values. I only pray that we can make a change before it’s too late.
