Just last week a report from CNN Money said that 76% of Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck.

While the average American is struggling, while there are reports of cutbacks because of sequester, the Obamas live large and it's all paid for by the taxpayers

Expensive clothes are all a woman in prison has left.

Those, and fine foods, expensive travel and A list entertainment.

Boy, did these two really put one over on some Americans. What a con job this King ran and stupid people still cannot see through it. At least half of Americans are plain ignorant.

The designers donate to Michelle and give her media coverage as the best dressed evah.

It’s a win-win. Michelle gets good press and the designers get photo coverage.

None of this would bother me if either of them loved America. When I see her I see hate of America and its values. I see evil.

a $1,295 designer dress

That is nice, as hubby is telling Africans they don't need air conditioning or cars because that would make the planet boil over.

It looks like she tripped, fell, and rolled around in some soot that caused smudges all over the dress.

When I see the first couple all tricked out like this and giving/attending extravagant events...I remember reading about the coronation (yes, coronation) of Napoleon I.

He forced his generals and Marshals of the Empire to attend in full court regalia... many of whom began their careers as (and SOME of whom remained) staunch Republicans.

I believe it was Marshal Ney who said out loud: ‘Two million people died to put an end to this s%$#”

“but that is one ugly dress”

You could’ve said “BUTT-ugly dress” and been more accurate.

Nah... they are just cashing in or the lack of refinement of SOME women.

I always say fashion is the industry that markets ‘style’ to women who have none of their OWN.

Do you know HOW hopelessly stupid, ill-bred and laughably insecure you have to BE to want and WEAR a $2700 garment that looks like a rag?

As opposed to the absolute crap outfits she and her daughters wore in Ireland. This is a family that has perfected the art of sticking it in people’s eye.

He's following in the steps of 'brother' BJ in hopes it will improve his after-presidency image on the world stage.

His judgement regarding many things were questionable.

Sarah Palin and family of five are loaned $150,00 worth of clothes for national convention = MSM trash fest.

Moochie 'n' Bammy spend $100,000,000 on a vacay with an entourage of 1,000 after a 5-year recession = no problemo.

re: it's about time us gals got catty!!! The dress actually looks good on Michelle. It's a lot like some of the Dress Barn styles this year. They're about $50. I certainly hope it's not government money subsidizing that pricetag.

I'd like to know if that dress and the daughters' dresses were made in either the USA or Senagal. Anything else would be an insult to both clothing manufacturing local industries.

The girls look good, too. It's nice to see the little one dressed like a young girl for this event.

I wonder who dressed them all....they usually don't wardrobe well lately.

I believe that is it in a nutshell. Because they hate America so much, they want to do their part in stealing as much from the "man" as they can. Your are right, I see evil as well. They are truly wolves in sheep's clothing.

I haven’t spent $1,295 on my entire wardrobe in the last 10 years combined. I just noticed I’ve almost worn out a pair of flip flops I’ve worn nearly every day for the past 8 years.
