"I just wanted to have the taxpayers fund my vacation junkets"


"After graduating from college, we did everything we thought we should do to be successful -- Craig went to business school, I went to law school, we got prestigious jobs at an investment bank and me at a law firm. We soon had all the traditional markers of success: the fat paycheck, the fancy office, the impressive lines on our resumés. But the truth is, neither of us was all that fulfilled,” said Obama. “I was living the dream, but it wasn’t my dream. And Craig felt the same way, unbeknownst to me."

I wonder if Michelle is "fulfilled" now that she's been the First Lady and has had the opportunity to have the taxpayers pay for her luxury junkets in this time of economic despair -- y'know, as her husband says, "the worst recession since the Great Depression"?

Hube- don't forget that neither of them left that fat paycheck behind.

Craig is paid $950,000 to coach at Oregon St. and Mrs. Obama was being paid nore than $330,000 annually when she worked at the Univ of Chicago Hospital.
