2006: university of chicago hospital gets a $1 million earmark, requested by st. obama.
here's the fun part:
You know who works for the University of Chicago Hospital?obama may be able to give a speech and raise money, but he's a political amateur. as much as i disagree with sen. john mccain on some issues, there's no denying that st. obama will look like the empty suit he is when on stage with this man.
Michelle Obama. She's vice president of community affairs.
As Byron [York] noted, "In 2006, the Chicago Tribune reported that Mrs. Obama’s compensation at the University of Chicago Hospital, where she is a vice president for community affairs, jumped from $121,910 in 2004, just before her husband was elected to the Senate, to $316,962 in 2005, just after he took office."
