Michelle Obama Sports a $1,000 Handbag
WH Dossier ^ | 3/10/11 | staff

Posted on 03/10/2011 9:27:09 PM PST by pissant

Well heavens!

Mrs. Obama was gaining a lot of traction as the fashion icon for the everywoman when all of a sudden she stepped out of the Michellemobile – reportedly Monday – grasping a $1,000 tote bag.

Take a look-see!

When Barney says ‘We’re not broke’, he’s specifically talking about everyone in DC. Now, flyover country is another matter!

Looks like one of those reusable shopping bags you can buy at the supermarket - it’s green and everything....looks leak-proof too - good for chicken.

It’s not that she bought that bag but that someone would pay $1,000 that FU Bag! Looks like it’s made of plastic for a bag lady.

$1,000 for a bring your own grocery bag?

I'm still using a black Wilson leather bag I picked up at one of Frencie's (thrift) in Nova Scotia 6 years ago for $4.00...

I only use my $1 grocery totes when I'm shopping for groceries.

But I'm glad she's cutting back -

I suspicion spending only a thousand on a handbag is a sacrifice to her...

Love the comments—one “michelle fan” rants about the purse and the 15-car motorcade for the dear leader and moOchelle to go to parent-teacher conferences earler this week...slowing down traffic making people late for work. FIFTEEN-CAR MOTORCADE IN DC?!?! No wonder there is an oil shortage.

That bag and those shoes...oy! Is she color blind? The jacket is cute however.

While I don’t think our ...gads...I hate to call her this....FLOTUS should run around in rags I just can’t shake the feeling that these two are like any other African dictators who plunder their country but don’t care because they are living the high life. Same old story but new to the US. I wonder if stories will leak out from the WH staff someday about how insufferable mr and mrs zero are.

She looks horrible.

Maybe it’s because the way you look on the outside is a reflection of what you are on the inside.

The bag is ugly, but not as ugly as the stupid blue shoes that don’t match anything she’s wearing. She’s just a slovenly creep.

$1000.00 is a lot of money, but I have several distinctly middle class friends who have bags that cost that much or more. Ridiculous? Perhaps. But many women love handbags.

Wake me when she buys a Hermes Birkin or something similar.

A $1000 handbag is not expensive. If it is quality and it lasts for many years, it is a better deal than cheap bags that wear out from poor quality construction. It is much less wasteful to buy quality.

I am distinctly middle class and have a clothes and accessory thing. I shop very smart and own some really nice stuff. I have a Chanel and an LV that both cost more than that bag.....they look better too.

No, No, Michelle - the bag goes over your head. A bag over your head: Priceless.

Who, BTW, pays Marie’s high maintenance? Are we picking up the tab for all this tastelessness and ugliness?

phat ass mabelle michelle is one ooooogly beeeotch!!! She & 0dumbo are raping this country silly with their extravagant hedonistic narcissistic lifestyle. They love raping the taxpayers, especially the white taxpayers. Payback for their hatred of whitey. I know they will never pay the price in this lifetime for their raping & pillaging of our country, but they & their family will roast in hell in outer darkness & weeping & knashing of teeth. Be not deceived, God is not mocked. Whatsoever a man (or phat ass) soweth, that shall they also reap!

I don't understand how any self respecting secret service man can grovel & prostrate at the feet of 0dumbo's! I would quit my job before I would grovel or pay any respect to those two hedonistic bastards in the WH!

You pegged it exactly right! The 0dumbo's are like sadistic African dictators who rape & pillage their own country while the people scratch the earth for bugs & roots to eat, while systematically starving to death or dying of AIDS or other diseases.

Speaking of phat ass michelle's 15 car motorcade to grovel for her sorry ass, I just read an article about the thug president Mugabe of Zimbabwe which stated that "President Mugabe and other senior government officials travel around Harare accompanied by large and aggressive motorcades that have been known to run motorists off the road, and by security personnel who occasionally beat and harass drivers who fail to pull out of the way quickly enough."

http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/cis/cis_1063.html

This is a dead ringer for 0dumb0's arrogance & narcissism. Hopefully we will vote their sorry asses out in year 2012.

You've got to be kidding me. Please tell me that vinyl-looking thing is not worth a thousand bucks.

And those shoes? I mean, I've got the fashion sense of a turnip, but dang, please...

It is to someone whose budget only allows $50 for a purse. You don’t think $1,000 is expensive for a handbag??? I’ve never spent more than $50 and have gotten some pretty nice ones on sale at Carson’s, Kohls. Where do you shop lol?

I thought the days were over when your shoes had to match your bag. At least that’s what I’ve read in magazines. They also say panty hose are very outdated. Guess everyone’s supposed to go bare legged in order to fit in with the crowd, whether you have nice leg skin/color or not.

A good coach or Dooney and burke bag might go for a couple hundred...we usually get them used or on Ebay because they last forever.

In Obama's case, though, he insists that there be a multi-million dollar environmental impact report done before even that is allowed.

He makes 400,000 dollars a year so 1,000 dollars for a purse is not too much.

Plus $5 million per year in book royalties.
