"...it wasn't until I stepped away from the corporate track and worked in city government and eventually helped to found the Chicago chapter of Public Allies, an AmeriCorps program, a national service program, that I realized how important public service and community service was to my own development... And now that the two of us have moved to Washington, our new home -- (applause) -- we both have continued to stress the value of national and community service..." --Michelle Obama, 17 March 2009
The phrase "public service" must mean different things to different people.
For Michelle Obama, it translates to spending $10 million of the taxpayers' money on vacations in only a single year's time and living like, well, a millionaire or billionaire.
Michelle Obama is the very model of selfless public service.
Remember, she did make a six-figure salary for a number of years before Obama ran for President. For that matter, he has some serious book royalties coming in. I therefore don't care how much she spends on her clothing -- until and unless it can be demonstrated that she is somehow putting that clothing on the taxpayer's tab like she does with her vacations.
"Rhymes" nailed it. If the Republicans would let us raise taxes on all their millionaire and billionaire buddies, then we could all live like Michelle Obama. Until then, maybe we can marry someone with major political connections so people will put us on their boards and pay us big money for doing nothing, just like Michelle Obama.
She did not make a six figure salary till Barry stole his Senate seat. After he was elected, she somehow got a $300k+ a year job doing nothing at a hospital that somehow ended up getting millions in earmark. Imagine that.
The first wookie loves sticking it to whitey this way. It's her own personal version of reparations.
