    Is there anyone in America more out of touch with middle America then the frat boy we have in the White House? Now all the Obamabots will screech Romney and I would agree if he had said anything near what Obama says.

    Obama Complains that Michelle Doesn't Make Money As First Lady - Michelle Obama - Fox Nation

    President Obama spoke to women supporters today at a Denver event.

    "...I wanna make sure that when she's working she is getting paid the same as men, I gotta say that First Ladies right now don't, even though that's a tough job!"

    I'd work for nothing too just to have her expense account.

    If she is working it is for his reelection. If that is so then she is fair game. Of course what Obama really is doing is dividing the country once again. Yes, if all the jobs are averaged then women might make less. But in this day and age if a woman works next to a man on the same job I would think they make the same money. They do where I work.

    Well, first off she wasn't hired for this 'job', nothing is keeping her from getting one either. And if she was, she'd be fired for abuse of privileges (vacations, campaigning, 22 servants.)

    Keep Obama off the teleprompter, I really like his sponteniety...

    Strange.....I didn't see any complaint there

    Does FoxNation have a problem with English?

    Is the quote accurate? If so he most definitely WAS complaining.

    He was talking about equal pay for women

    He merely stated a fact that first ladies don't get paid for all their work. Where was the complaint that she should be paid?
