Simply disgusting. [/quote] Nothing about her is ghetto. You are very clearly jealousy and hating on her success. Go back to your cave. [/quote] You are so very wrong, she is Ghetto in every sense of the word. Living high on the American hog at others expense...yep ghetto. [/quote] So every First Lady of the US is ghetto by your definition.. Because they all live [b]"[color=red]high on the hog[/color]"[/b] and contributed little. And before you start comparing numbers, go read the post about inflation. [/quote] Michelle is living "high off the hog" well. Been doing it for years.

Several years later, they moved into their $1.65 million mansion in Hyde Park--with the help of fraudster Tony Rezko. Barack often told a story of hardship on the campaign trail in 2008 about having his credit card declined--once. The fact that he thought this counted as real hardship speaks volumes. As her husband moved onto the national political stage, Michelle Obama began to enjoy a lavish lifestyle at taxpayer expense, directly and indirectly. When Barack Obama was elected to the U.S. Senate, he obtained a $1 million earmark for the University of Chicago Hospital--and his wife's salary as Vice President for Community Affairs jumped from $121,910 to $316,962. Her job: pushing poor, uninsured patients to other hospitals. As First Lady, Michelle Obama has lived high on the hog while the rest of the country has suffered through an extraordinary recession. In 2010, she and her entourage decamped to Spain for a lavish vacation. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/09/05/Fact-Check-Michelle-Obama-s-False-Fairy-Tale-of-Struggle ---- http://newsbusters.org/blogs/noel-sheppard/2008/08/23/michelle-obamas-hospital-shuns-uninsured-poor-people ---- "In February 2009, outrage in the Obamas' community exploded after a young boy covered by Medicaid was turned away from the University of Chicago Medical Center. Dontae Adams' mother, Angela, had sought emergency treatment for him after a pit bull tore off his upper lip. Mrs. Obama's hospital gave the boy a tetanus shot, antibiotics, and Tylenol and shoved him out the door. The mother and son took an hour-long bus ride to another hospital for surgery. I'll guarantee you this: You'll never see the Adams family featured at an Obama policy summit or seated next to the First Lady at a joint session of Congress to illustrate the failures of the health care system. Following the Adams incident, the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) blasted Mrs. Obama and Mr. Axelrod's grand plan. The group released a statement expressing "grave concerns that the University of Chicago's policy toward emergency patients is dangerously close to 'patient dumping,' a practice made illegal by the Emergency Medical Labor and Treatment Act (EMTALA)" – signed by President Reagan, by the way – "and reflected an effort to 'cherry pick' wealthy patients over poor." Rewarding political cronies at the expense of the poor while posing as guardians of the downtrodden? Welcome to Obamacare." http://michellemalkin.com/2009/09/18/one-woman-michelle-obama-will-not-mention/ ---- [/quote]
"Now, reports are surfacing that her entire entourage costs taxpayers around $1.4M per year. That is almost three times the cost of Laura Bush’s staff, which was $561,325."

"Word coming out of a Canadian press outlet is revealing that American taxpayers are shelling out a staggering total of
$1,591,200 annually for the First Lady’s 22 member personal staff. She has deputy assistants to the President and Policy and Projects; a press corps; deputies for chief of staff social secretaries; and associate directors of scheduling, traveling aides, and correspondence people who help full time directors of these divisions. This figure doesn’t include her make- up artist or First Hairstylist who rode with her aboard Air Force One on one trip to Europe."
