Poor Little Rich Michelle

Cross posted from Monkey in the Middle

I know we’re spending — I added it up for the first time — we spend between the two kids, on extracurriculars outside the classroom, we’re spending about $10,000 a year on piano and dance and sports supplements and so on and so forth,” Mrs. Obama tells the women. “And summer programs. That’s the other huge cost. Barack is saying, ‘Whyyyyyy are we spending that?’ And I’m saying, ‘Do you know what summer camp costs?’”

Poor Michelle Obama. She and her candidate hubby Barack only make a combined income of $481,000 a year. Yet they can’t afford piano lessons, sports lessons, dance class and summer camp for their daughters.

Poor, poor Michelle. Her candidate hubby had only 2 best sellers, bringing in millions of dollars in royalties. Yet they are having trouble saving for their daughters’ college education.

What will they do?

Trying to look like a middle-class family, Michelle Obama made the statement above. But let us look at the facts.

FACT: They make $481,000 in combined income. This puts them in the top 2% of all US taxpayers. Middle class they are not.

FACT: Michelle Obama doesn’t do housework. She has had maids, nannies, and gardners. The average American can only dream of those luxuries.

FACT: Michelle and Barack Obama went to the best schools in the nation. Universities that cost $50,000 a year. Most Americans if they go to college, can only afford city or state schools.

FACT: Michelle and Barack Obama send their children to the best (expensive) private schools in the Chicago area. Most Americans send their children to public schools because they cannot afford the tuition to the private schools.

FACT: The Obamas are rich! They are not middle class. They do not struggle to make ends meet. They do not worry how they can afford gas and food, let alone the luxuries of piano and dance lessons for their children.

Michelle I have some advise for you. I know how you can afford all the luxuries for your daughters. You can send them to the YMCA. They have dance, music and sports all in one place. They have reasonable fees and a great staff to help you. You can even join and use their gym equipment instead of the expensive health club you and Barack use. But then again, with the elitist attitude you and Barack have, you’d probably decide not to. After all you would have to associate with real Americans. The Middle Class and poor.

UPDATE: (Hat tip to Jem of America Needs Sarah Palin) Since writing this, it has come to my attention the indulgences that Michelle Obama has.

Michelle Obama ordered lobster apps, two whole steamed lobsters, Iranian caviar, and Champagne at the Waldorf Wednesday afternoon when she was there with her dear hubby for a meeting.
