Did she buy the bracelet, or is it just borrowed? It is not unusual to borrow or rent high priced jewelry for special occasions.

Looks like the Wookie was wearing the same bling a few nights ago
when, tastefully dressed as always, she was promoting green energy.

If I ever rented or even borrowed something that expensive so I could show off for an evening, I believe my hand would shrivel.

If you look closely you’ll see the TelePrompter is right in front of Zero.

How fitting.

Also how can anyOne be sooooo ‘tone deaf’?

I'm not sure that matters. I don't care about the household budget of the Obamas. I see that they spend my money foolishly. How they spend their own money is of no interest to me.

What bothers me is that Michelle wants to live like a queen. Her money, our money, someone's money -- I don't care how she accomplishes this: I just think it is in poor taste while her husband's policies put most Americans in the poorhouse.

It doesn't matter as far as I'm concerned. She probably borrowed it because these people don't like to pay for anything themselves. It's a disgusting display at a time when Americans are hurting. Have a look at the Duchess of Cambridge. That young woman is smart enough to wear High Street dresses more than once. Michelle flaunts her freebie riches while we're suppose to pay higher taxes & eat our peas. These people need to go!

I never noticed Mrs. Biden before. Not bad looking for her age, (or is just a rare good photo).

This should give inspiration out there that even the most stupid doufous guy can get a hawt chick.

I wonder when the Vacation Wh_re is going on her next Big Trip!? I hope its somewhere exciting and exotic! I am sure she will take her mother, her 25 personal slaves (paid for by taxpayer dollars too), and 432 strap hangers from the Obama campaign.

I recall the media making a big deal about Cindy McCain’s expensive jewelry and First Lady Laura Bush wearing designer Oscar de la Renta custom gowns while America’s working families did not have much. The newspapers reported that it was very insensitive of these ladies to do. Obama’s wife, who brings up the working class often, seems to act more like a Hollywood star than understanding the country is in bad financial shape.

She also ate three $16.00 Muffins and drank a cup of $8.00 coffee.
Why?
It's your money, she loves to spend it. . . . .

You are right about her acting as though she is a queen. The Integrity doll company has dolls out which look just like her. And yes, the dolls are taller than the regular 11 and 1/2 inch Mattel Barbie doll.

Bush’s fault!

(Barky did complain that his taxes were too low and that he had extra money.... someone call the IRS to help the obama family relieve its suffering at the injustice of the Bush tax cuts)

Better yet, DOCTOR Jill

She is one of these pretentious Jr college professors who insist on being called DOCTOR Biden

Agree, yet the media has given MO a pass on this disgraceful behavior. The expensive vacations, the $2,000 dresses, the $500 sneakers .... etc. I don’t have a problem with FLOTUS looking nice, but I do have a problem with flaunting when Americans are hurting with no relief in sight. This is while they tell us we need to have “skin in this game.”

Great photo! The frou-frou on her chest is to counter-balance the frou-frou on her bottom. Both Obamas are all about “in your face” 24/7. They never let up.

Let’s cut the class warfare BS. When people on the right adopt this rhetoric, what they are really saying is, “We’re not as mean as as you socialists think we are.” It’s none of anybody’s business what Michelle O. wears, unless she stole it.

Do you even know/understand what class warfare is? Cuz you're barking up the wrong tree here buddy. What I don't appreciate is this neuveax riche slob flaunting her new found wealth while her husband sticks his fists in our pockets for mo' money. I don't appreciate the 10 (lost count to be honest) vacations this broad has taken this year alone while Americans have to cut back.

I've silently cut back. We have suffered in this economy like everyone else ... everyone except the Obamas. I don't give a crap how much $$ they have. Never have, never will. But don't shove it in America's face when you know damn right well Americans are hurting. People are losing their homes. 1 in 6 Americans are in poverty. Our leaders should be sensitive enough to at least give the appearence that they care. It's freaking trashy. And it comes just days after Obama screamed that the rich aren't paying their fair share. So the gov't is demanding more money from us to pay for checks they cashed, and this idiot is sporting $42K worth of jewels??? It's as disgusting as when she had the audacity to wear $500 sneakers to a homeless shelter.

If it were 1 or 2 instances, I wouldn't care. But I am sick to death of this woman acting like she just won the lottery. Maybe if her husband actually did his job, America wouldn't be hurting right now. If that were the case, I simply wouldn't care about her bobbles.

@Dead: love that pic!! Perfect! Can I use that sometime

“wow ain’t history something?”
I found myself engaged in that speech by Nixon because it seemed so completely honest. First of all, the television coverage was in its infancy, no slick angles,nothing fancy just a few camera angles and Nixon talking. It was certainly a more technologically naive age and because of this I found myself thinking that this bare bones news cast was about as real as any political message could be. I miss those days.
