Sob! FLOTUS Gets Resume From Girl With Jobless Dad

From an irony proof Associated Press:

Michelle Obama Receives Heartbreaking Plea From Child Whose Dad Is Unemployed

By NANCY BENAC | April 24, 2014

WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama’s annual question-and-answer session with the children of Executive Office employees took a serious turn Thursday when a 10-year-old girl in the front row told the first lady that her dad had been out of work for three years. Then the girl popped up to hand the first lady his resume.

The first lady seemed a little taken aback…

We suspect Michelle was furious to have her photo op disrupted like this. ‘Weren’t these kids rehearsed?!’

[B]ut then [she] explained to the other children, who might not have heard the girl’s comment, that the matter was "a little private, but she’s doing something for her dad." Mrs. Obama promised to deal with the matter later.

In other words, Michelle avoided telling the kids the truth about this little girl’s dad being unemployed thanks to the Obama economy and the worst ‘recovery’ in our nation’s history. Perhaps she didn’t want to scare them.

When the event ended, Mrs. Obama gave the girl, Charlotte Bell, a hug and then reached back to grab the resume off a table as she left the East Room. The first lady played host to the children at the White House on Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.

Charlotte’s family had joked over the weekend about making a job pitch to the first lady, but her parents didn’t know she would give it a try, according to her mother, an executive branch employee who did not want to be identified.

Charlotte’s father, Ben Bell —

So much for not identifying the mother.

[H]as been looking for a policy job for more than two years and recently has been trying to get a job with the Obama administration. He worked on the Obama campaign in 2012.

Her father worked for the Obama campaign in 2012 and he still doesn’t have "a policy job" in the administration? (Though his wife does.) No wonder the girl’s parents were fuming about it.

And no wonder the girl thought of telling the Obamas, who are the employer of first and last resort.

  1. Someone should tell little Charlotte that it is a good thing her father has been unemployed for so long. Think about all the time he has had to spend with his family. The opportunity to follow his dreams of becomming a Novelist, or a painter. Now if we could get her mother fired, then the whole family could go on welfare, medicaide, and food stamps. All will be right with the world.

    Here’s another thought. If the guy’s last job was working on the Obama campaign, maybe he’s just not qualified to do anything. It seems that most of the people who worked on Obama’s campaign that do still have jobs, are blindingly unqualified to do them.

    MO: “I love to travel. That’s one of the things while the last few years in the White House”….”Australia is next on my bucket list.”

    She left out telling the children whose paying for her favorite past time.
