No, Michele Obama does not get paid to serve as the First Lady and she doesn’t perform any official duties. But this hasn’t deterred her from hiring an unprecedented number of staffers to cater to her every whim and to satisfy her every request in the midst of the Great Recession.

Sarah Palin has a larger staff and she is a quitter.
I would hope that if YOUR wife were being attacked, the way you deep south hill-billies are attacking her, you would want some help too.
Give it up and get real.

Looks like I need to get my husband into politics so I can have 20 people waiting on me so I don't have to do a thing. I can understand hiring one or two assistants to keep track of her schedule or run errands, but 20? Come on now, that's just ridiculous. No First Lady in the history of our country has done anything so taxing that they needed 20 people to wait on them.
All it is is an excuse to spend more money while the rest of the country is cutting down on expenses and many are now struggling to make ends meet. Maybe instead of calling on the country to support Obama and his policies, Michelle should be calling on herself to risk breaking a nail and not have 20 attendants.

I can understand 5 assistants, maybe a little more, but I guess I'm ignorant about why 20 would be needed. I sure would like to see the time sheets of what is being done for 800 hours a week at our expense?
