    Michelle Obama makes $360,000 per year at Chicago Hospital.

    Her title..... Outreach Advocate !

    I wonder how many doctors make more than Michelle Obama at the
    Chicago Hospital?

    As Mike Dukakis would say......Good Jobs at Good Wages !

    What is an Outreach Advocate you ask....
    serve the individual, families and communities by providing life saving knowledge to promote wellness and illness prevention.

    I now understand why Barack is pushing Universal Heath care.
    He don't want the Outreach Advocats to lose her meal ticket.

    Good for her!

    Unless she got hired there since he was elected to the senate...then there are some issues, but still--good for her. People should be able to make as much as they can.

    Nobody should make 360,000 for a social service position !
    It is a 35,000 a year position.

    I work for one of the three largest investments banks in the United States. When I started working for the company in 1985 I had the best medical
    coverage available "BCBS Master Health Plus" Everything was covered 100%
    with no co-payment and it was total company funded.

    I now have a much lesser plan "Tufts HMO" and I pay $607 per month
    towards the plan for a family of 4.

    This country has a health care crisis and universal health and
    Michelle Obama's feel good job are not the answer.

    They need to address the cost of medical coverage by first addressing the
    cost of malpractice insurance which is driving up medical costs and is driving talented individuals away from medicine.

    Without regard the hospital hired her, so whose fault is it ultimately?? Should she have said no so all the wrighties could be happy??

    If Laura Bush made that kind of money every Left Wing Democrat in America would have set themselves on fire, they would have been calling for her impeachment.

    Outreach Advocate:
    Sounds like a "politically correct term" for "Trouble Making Do-Gooder"

    I could be wrong though----------:singing:

    When I saw it was Howie Carr I became somewhat suspicious.. not that he would ever spin... She is or was Vice President of Community Affairs.. some of the links indicate she has quit but cannot confirm at this time... this is much different than Howie's version of Outreach Advocate.

    GJAJ: you might notice in my post I said "good for her", so I could care less how much she makes. But I do have to wonder why you'd toss Cindy McCain into the mix. You as one of the people who complains about the "wright wing" mentioning Bill Clinton so much etc.

    Plus, there's a difference between Cindy McCain inheriting the largest Bud distributorship in the Southwest and Mrs. Obama maybe getting a job because her husband was in the state senate or the US senate, don't you think?

    Not that I'm saying that's why she got that job or any other, mind.

    Why would we imply that she got the job because her husband was a senator? Michelle Obama is ridiculously qualified to serve in any capacity as an executive. If you've done any little bit of research you can see that the Obamas are very well educated lawyers who worked together for years. She's been vital to his success and he's not shy about saying as much. She could easily make that much anywhere. Chelsea Clinton makes upwards of 250k, what does that say? Nothing...

    (by the way I don't anyone makes it into the 6 figures without a few breaks going their way but to say it's all because of him just seems silly at best)

    In 2005, Michelle Obama, an administrator at the not-for-profit University of Chicago Hospitals, was promoted to vice president of community affairs, and her income rose to $316,962 from $121,910.

    If she went from $121,910 to $316,692 in 2005, she must be blaming the
    white folk that she is only making $360,000 in 2008.

    Say what you want about Howie Carr.... He has the resources to find
    almost anyone's salary.

    Outreach Advocate or Vice President of affairs.... Don't let the VP fool you......In this case is stands for Vicious Princess

    Hey, rook--I didn't say it.
    I said "good for her".

    "If you've done any little bit of research..." yep...okay.

    Need to go back to remedial reading?

    She's a vicious princess and your health coverage has risen over the years due to her, hmmmmmmm, yea.
    This is Chicago, whereas if your spouse is a politician, you get a very healthy salary. The current governor's wife has received generous commissions in real estate. I'm sure Michelle is capable of a good salary, but politics probably does play a role. Before you scream Dem's, a reminder that the last Ill. Gov (R) is in prison and three of the last seven did time. Sometimes your name carries a lot of weight, currently, we see that nightmare being played out in the White House.

    NO, her salary only TRIPLED when he got elected to the Senate! But don't worry Obama got the hospital millions of your tax dollars in pork barrell spending.

    Dude, slow your roll with that Rook sh!t. I've been here since this place was Rivals. If you don't know what that is maybe ask some of the other "rooks". Remedial reading? You do realize you're typing on a message board right? What an @ss...

    Yeah I know. I don't know what came over me and I apologize for it. For some reason the word "rook" is stuck in my head.

    Anyway, yes, remedial reading, because you were suggesting I had said something I didn't say.

    I said "good for her".

    My next comment was for GJAJ who brought Cindy McCain into the conversation.

    I could give a sh!t how much Mrs. Obama makes, or from where.

    You don't need Howie Carr to find a salary, I found it quite easily through Google.. all of these threads are idiotic, if she was a vp of community affairs she may have deserved the salary.. as there is no comparative salaries listed for similar adms. it is difficult to tell..

    All you folks slay me underneath all of your rants is a strong hint of racism, because a competent woman got ahead.. I read somewhere she resigned, but it is not confirmed.. bottom line is who gives a f..ck.. she is not going to be the president.. remember Laura and her drunken car crash when she killed someone.. that was pretty drastic.

    Howie Carr = Little Green Footballs.
