Not really. It's a "business expense." She needs them to feed the poor for a few minutes.
Man, them things is too big to fit LeBron James. They looks like about 19 EEEEE. Put a handle on them for a nice briefcase.
Ugly shoes and what the heck size are they????...they look huge!
Ugly sneakers,feet,ankles,outfit,face etc.
First of all,they're *sneakers*...not shoes.There's a difference.Second...on a more philosophical note...my Dad,who passed on a few years ago,worked damn hard during his life and was very careful with his $$$.As a result he achieved what many would consider a very comfortable life.Yet in spite of that he used to wear Timex watches and drove Oldsmobiles...although he could have easily afforded watches and cars that were *much* more expensive.My Dad was a child of the depression.Mrs Osama is clearly a child of the *me* generation.
Just my 2 cents' worth.
She should also encourage those at the food bank to sample the cake.
I agree on both counts. How clueless do you need to be to show up to work at a food bank in the latest over-priced sneakers? Audacity is not always a good thing. In fact, it’s highly over-rated.
Hey, Sarah Palin, how much yo’ shoes cost? Let’s see ‘em.
They are nice to wear while eating Kobe beef.
That's right "BOGO"!!!!
Her answer to her own question---- Watcha gonna do with 600 bucks?...Remember?
Truth be told, she probably got them at a yard sale for a lot less.
Exactly my point. ; )
Well, at least she didn’t get the $1200 pair with the solid gold shoelace rings!
I don’t like class envy and it’s ugly to see it in people who call themselves conservatives- because pointing the finger at another’s rich extravagances is something I have always associated with socialists and democrats. I see things have shifted so far left in the States, conservatives are roughly where socialists were in the 80s. Which kind of makes this sight a left-wing hangout if you think about it.
It doesn’t bother me that she wears expensive shoes. I don’t see why it should bother anybody. Some people like being bothered though.
She wants to wear expensive sneakers, her business, not mine.
$540 sneakers? Hell, I got good shotguns that cost less than that.
Everything they do precedes a plan up ahead...
Those things are just ... words fail me. What is it about Marxists that they have to buy the most expensive *trashy* stuff?
did somebody say sneakers?
She is a fan of mugly shoes & camel toes.
did somebody say sneakers?
did somebody say sneakers?
I’d guess you think she would do better with these. ;)
some of the crowd bought it- but i thought it was really over the top in the way of pandering, as i knew she was going to a state dinner that evening and can only assume her demeanor and dress would morph accordingly."
#1 Definition of "Baby Daddy", from urbandictionary.com:
"Usually a broke ass black man; Who you met through a friend and had sex wit when you was upset and confused. Now you don had his baby and he dont pay child support and denies yo son ray ray. He just my baby daddy"
WOLF BLITZER: We can take a look. Maybe he will and maybe he won't but she looks like she's about to introduce him. Let's listen in.
MICHELLE OBAMA: "My babys daddy Barack Obama. Yeah!"
#1 Definition of "Baby's Daddy", also from urbandictionary.com:
"A guy who is a lousy father, who gots one or more kids with one or more chicks and, thinks he's a pimp. And instead of takin care of the baby he goes out an finds another chick to ****. Until she too becomes just another baby's momma and he moves on. So on and so forth."
girl one: "Who is that?"
girl two: "That's my dumbass baby daddy and his dumb ho"
From ABC News...
Marry Your Baby Daddy Day!
One Woman Wants to Bring Marriage Back to the Black Community
"This was not the historical norm. Most black kids were born to married parents until the time when President Johnson promised to end poverty. Perhaps because poor people were offered more government aid, moms had less need for a husband. Some mothers could lose a welfare check if their husband made money. People respond to such incentives, and the out-of-wedlock birthrate has continued to grow across the board, but especially among blacks.
'There is no stigma anymore in the black community about having a child out of wedlock,' said Reid, which led to the creation of Marry Your Baby Daddy Day. For those who don't know, Reid explains that 'a Baby Daddy is simply...an unmarried father. But they've become caricatures in the ghetto.'

Oh gosh! Sorry for the triple post! Slowwwww computer!
Grat tagline, sneakers! My mother’s real estate agent years ago was one of the RAF “Dam Busters” bomber squadron in World War 2. (An American citizen, long story.) The squadron was introduced to the King and Queen of England when they were given their for destroying the Rurh dams, and each man got a personal thanks from the Queen. All the British flyers bowed to the Queen, of course, but after she thanked Joe for his service, she said, “You need not bow; simply turn and walk away.”
It should. As long as she's doing "the peoples business", she can charge them to us as business expense.
What's in your wallet?
All animals are equal read the original sign in George Orwells Animal Farm, but shortly after Napoleon and his fellow porcine commissars take over that motto is emended to All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.
I'll take Sarah on a bad hair day. It's laughable that the media tries to portray Michelle as glamorous. The woman, God bless her, is simply unattractive. And these sneakers don't help.
$540? I spent less than half of that yesterday on 2 dresses, 2 tops, and 2 pairs of shoes! I waited for a big sale at Peebles. I also drive a 1992 car. But I was one of those rich people attending a Tea Party on April 15.
I really don’t care how much money rich people want to spend on clothing, or anything else they wish to buy, until they try to lecture the rest of us on how we should share what we earn.
1) This is not class envy it is pointing out the blatant hypocrisy.
2)Conservatives ARE NOT where the socialist were in the 80's, dead wrong, try again.
3)Again, this has nothing to do with envy, it has to do with THEM telling us what to wear, what to drive, what to eat, what the temp in your house should be, how to raise your kids, how much money we should have, on and on and on. Then the non-proud American slicky chick in the White House has the balls to wear $600 a pair sneakers. She needs to get a clue along with some class.
Beats the h*ll out of looking at her face.
How many homeless people could have gotten good hot meals for the money the First ***** paid for those ugly sneakers?
I doubt it.Her ilk wants *everyone* to know that they paid outrageous sums for everything they own...from sneakers to vacation houses.Clowns like her a dime a dozen in my neck of the woods.....driving a Mercedes with plates that read "VINEYARD"...(as in "Martha's Vineyard").

Class with a capital C
Let’s not forget those $600 earrings.
And we thought a $500 haircut on the LA airport tarmac was expensive.
ha ha ha ha. She’s a groupie wannabe
Put a “A country boy can survive” bumper sticker on it. They love that.
