At the top right hand corner of Page 17 of the New York Post of January 24th, 2009, was a short column entitled “Replacing Michelle” – in the National Review “The Week” column .
I found this interesting, so here it is, word for word, as it appeared:
Some employees are simply irreplaceable. Take Michelle Obama: The University of Chicago Medical center hired her in 2002 to run “programs for community relations, neighborhood outreach, volunteer recruitment, staff diversity and minority contracting”.
In 2005 the hospital raised her salary from $120,000 to $317,000 – nearly twice what her husband made as a Senator.
Oh did we mention that her husband had just become a US Senator? He sure had.
Requested a $1 million earmark for the UC Medical Center, in fact.
No; not really! ! ! It was Chicago, . . . after all! What? Did you think there was idealism and altruism there, because it was academia? HELLO? It’s CHICAGO!
Way to network Michelle!
