Here's The Job That I Want!

(Two posts today. Please scroll down)

The President's chief of staff to the dog gets an annual salary of $102,000!

From this source:
...The executive mansion is not in that much trouble, of course. It’s certainly not in sufficiently dire straits for Air Force One ($181,757 per hour) to be grounded, or to see the executive chef ($100,000 per year) furloughed, or to cut back on the hours of the three full-time White House calligraphers ($277,050 per year for the trio), or to limit the invaluable work of the chief of staff to the president’s dog ($102,000 per year), or to trim his ridiculous motorcade ($2.2 million). If Ellen DeGeneres wants another dancercize session or Spain holds another clothing sale, the first family will be there before you can say “citizen executive.” Fear ye not, serfs: Austerity may be the word of the week, but the president is by no means in any danger of being forced to live like the president of a republic instead of like a king....
Millions of Americans are scrambling: low salaries, higher taxes, and rising health-insurance premiums. But those in the Obama White House are living like kings.

  1. I wonder ... does the Chief of Staff to Bo carry a pooper-scopper with him? ;)

  4. 102K is not a bad salary for a dog walker -- typical of The Governing Class in Washington, DC, I'd say, where they believe an inexhaustible supply of taxpayer's money exists primarily to fund their every whim, caprice and fancy.

    I imagine another federal employee is paid a large sum just to pick up the poop. [Union rules demand "Separation of Labor" you know.]

    What I'd love to find out is what they pay the poor DOG for putting up with such a household? There isn't enough money in the world to pay me to play such a role! ;-)

    And think what the VET bills must be!

  5. Except that $102,000 in DC doesn't go very far!

  6. I might not like what I have to put up with were I to have a job like this.

    But I could nab that salary for a couple of years -- then go live under a rock.

  7. It would be nice if all of this was just a bad dream ... we wake up and the only one in the white house existing today, from the nightmare, is the BO the dog!
