it’s their money and they can spend it as they wish.

Not really. It's a "business expense." She needs them to feed the poor for a few minutes.

I don’t care if she spends $540 on a pair of shoes.

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.

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.

Don't forget the Kobe beef ($500/lb) canapes served at the weekly Obama cocktail parties. Not sayin' they should serve sliders from White Castle, but conspicuous is conspicuous . . .

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.

Let's guess the bottom line....When things at the Whitehouse are "messy"...her clothes will be put up for auction "for charity". Betcha....

From a website called, AltMuslim.com:
"...speaking of hypocrisy, and the southside of chicago- and barak obama- one time i went to the bud milliken parade ( a very big event- about 6 hours long) and at one point- michelle obama appeared waving on top of an escalade, she was wearing torn jeans, a drumpled semi dirty t-shirt half tucked in and out- and her hair was crazy undone- then she made a small speech- and actually referred to barak as her "baby daddy" (not baby's daddy even you'll notice)

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."
http://www.altmuslim.com/a/a/e/2676/

#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"

#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?"

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.'

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.”

“All animals are equal” read the original sign in George Orwell’s 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.”

Wonder if Sarah had any $540 shoes for walkin’ the dog in her campaign wardrobe?

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.
