Leftist hate having their spending choices second-guessed.
They'd be the first to pillory Laura Bush or Sarah Palin for wearing $540 sneakers. You can bet they would point out how many homeless people could be clothed or fed for what those sneakers cost.

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 . . .

Remember the Palin wardrobe scandal?
You could buy 300 pairs of those ugly French Sneakers for the $150,000 that was spent on Governor Palin. And let us not forget that many of those clothes were never worn and were returned.
300 pairs of sneakers could just about take care of the Obama Entourage.
