Ol' Hard-Knocks Barack

If this shitepoke didn't exist, it would be necessary for The Onion to invent him.

Obama: We didn’t have “the luxury” for Michelle to not work

The Big O's version:
And once Michelle and I had our girls, she gave it her all to balance raising a family and pursuing a career. And something that, could be very difficult on her, because I was gone a lot. Once I was in the state legislature, I was teaching, I was practicing law, I’d be traveling. And we didn’t have the luxury for her not to work.
Vs. (a part of) the actual record:
In 2005, when Obama began serving in the U.S. Senate (and his daughters turned 4 and 7), he and his wife were earning a combined annual income of $479,062. Barack Obama was paid a salary of $162,100 by the U.S. taxpayers, and Michelle Obama was paid $316,962 to handle community affairs for the University of Chicago Medical Center.
And according to Wikipedia,
According to the couple’s 2006 income tax return, her salary was $273,618 from the University of Chicago Hospitals, while her husband had a salary of $157,082 from the United States Senate. The Obamas' total income, however, was $991,296, which included $51,200 she earned as a member of the board of directors of TreeHouse Foods, and investments and royalties from his books.[
And of course that's just what they claim. I dunno, Mr. President, sir. A million a year will buy a certain amount of luxury - y'know, if you plan your budget carefully.

Don't forget that Mrs Obama's salary at that hospital more then doubled after Obama had control over funding for that hospital. She got a Chicago deal.
