[QUOTE=LINK;5866596]She is served by twenty-six attendants, including a hair dresser and make-up artist.
Every woman I know does their own, little money saved there?
When questioned by Mr. Gore, Katie McCormick Lelyveld, Michelle Obama’s press secretary, said that the First Lady does retain a staff of more than twenty who remain at her beck and call.Really?
But the actual number is 24, not 22, as the article reported.
Mrs. Lelyyeld failed to provide the names of the two additional attendants to Mrs. Obama. But she did confirm that six staffers who do not have “first lady” in their title but are a part of the First Lady’s office staff, such as Desiree Rogers, who bears the title “Special Assistant to the President and White House Social Secretary,” and Natalie Bookey, who is listed as a “staff assistant.”
What’s more, even a list of 24 would be incomplete since it would fail to include the names of makeup artist Ingrid Grimes-Miles, 49, and “First Hairstylist” Johnny Wright, 31, both of whom travel aboard Air Force One and provide Mrs. Obama with daily attention. Guess she can't do her own "upkeep" since she is so busy with everything she does.
The first lady does a lot more then just stay at home.
She goes around and does many events.
I'm not upset the first lady has this many. Could it be cut down? Sure....
What all does she do, and how necessary, is what she does, for the good of the country? Is there anywhere i can read to find out what all she does? Not trying to be smart ass really, honestly curious, to see the justification of spending so much on staff member like this.
