Epic media hypocrisy: Ann Romney’s $990 shirt bad… Michelle Obama’s $6800 shirt good!

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

The media has really outdone themselves with this one. They roundly thumped Ann Romney for wearing a $990 shirt – but when Michelle Obama wears something almost seven times as expensive, she’s lauded for saving a struggling economy. It doesn’t really make a whole lot of sense, does it?

The Washington Post had said:

Does Ann Romney wear her $990 designer shirt while driving one of her two Cadillacs?The very wealthy Mitt and Ann Romney have often been painted as out of touch with average Americans. Ann’s pricey shirt will not help her husband change those perceptions, no matter how many Laundromat photo ops are on the campaign’s daily itinerary. On Tuesday Ann wore a colorful silk T-shirt with a large bird print by Reed Krakoff during an interview with her and her husband on CBS’s “This Morning.” Fashion blogs quickly tracked down the “The Reed Audubon Silk Shirt” and noted the whopping price tag.

But now with Michelle Obama they are saying:

Michelle Obama has been criticized for not dressing up enough for Queen Elizabeth II, so she stepped up her game Friday night at an Olympics reception for heads of state at Buckingham Palace. The first lady wore a very fancy J. Mendel capsleeve jacket — “white viscose techno crepe tailored jacket with overlapped side panels and silver embroidery” from the 2013 Resort collection, according to a press release from the company. It’s not in stores yet, but high-end retailer Moda Operandi listed the jacket at a princely $6,800. The White House declined to comment.

Where is the outrage? Where are the comments calling the Obama’s out of touch and out of step with the American people? Are they tone deaf? Or is it suddenly OK for them to do it since they are on the other side of the aisle?

How about the media’s attack on Sarah Palin?

“I tend to remember a little story that would be turned into a major disaster for the campaign when Sarah Palin had really expensive clothing,” Stu said.

The guys recounted the attacks on the Palin when numbers came out for what she spent on clothing for the entire campaign. Meanwhile, the media doesn’t criticize the First Lady for spending more on a jacket than some people spend on their first car.

And make no mistake, this criticism isn’t about what Michelle Obama does with her own money. The issue is the stunning hypocrisy from the media who refuse to apply consistent standards to the Romney’s that they do to the Obama’s.

    No it is not stunning to those of us who have seen it happen since the self annointed, narcissist in chief entered the White House. He has become the darling and god-king of the media and the fanatical, radical, extremist leftists and socialists/marxists/communists; so he and the first lady cannot be seen or talked about in any way that has them doing wrong.

    Anymore the media is only about ideology – THEIR ideology – and all else is in opposition that needs to be coerced or forced into compliance, or failing that, discredited, defamed, distorded and then destroyed.

    It is absolute hyopcrisy beyond any doubt, and the current propaganda of the leftists would make even the propaganda ministry of Wilsons admin smile with delight, while secretly they plotted their usurpers downfall to take over the helm of state again.

    Understand the core rule they use – tell a lie long enough, loud enough, often enough, and there will be those who accept it as having a basis in truth. They do not need to change a persons perceptions of the Romneys completely; just cause enough doubt to come into play to make a person hestitate in casting a vote for him this November.

    Failing that, their secondary purpose is to get potential voters so sickened of politics and the constant rhetoric, that they choose not to vote.

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    Glenn here is the nutshell meaning of the media – propaganda for the purpose to defame, distort, and discredit while demoninizing their life and earned wealth. At the same time they attempt to make the Obama’s into the new Kennedy Camelot inheritors.

    Unlike the Kennedies and the perception of Camelot; the Obama’s are nothing more than a pack of thieves and destroyers. I have to wonder when they’re time to leave or flee the White House in January comes, how much damage they will leave behind and how much precious national treasures will have disappeared?

    Glenn, you are missing the bigger point here. We’re all used to media hypocrisy. But HELLO — Ann Romney spent (reportedly) almost $1000 ON A SHIRT. Michelle Obama spent (reportedly) almost $7000 ON A SHIRT. How many meals could be provided to hungry Americans with that kind of money? How many bus rides? How many books and school supplies?

    The outrage here is NOT the actions of the news media. It is the actions of two women who ought to be more concerned for the struggles of ordinary Americans. And even if ordinary Americans could afford to be that greedy, it still wouldn’t be right. This is a disgrace, a ridiculous waste of money, even if it is from their own bank accounts. There is such a thing as greedy, and this a good example of it. They both ought to be ashamed of themselves. I’m disgusted.

    What would you have them do?  Sew their own clothes?  Buy their clothes at second hand stores before going on TV or before the Leaders of Europe?  Its not greed to wear expensive clothes.  It just is what it is.  A better argument to show greed would be to look at how much both families spend on charitale giving.

    Yes, completely digraceful! They have no regard as to what they are doing. The personal spendng is sickening. The comment that was made about Michelle not dressing up enough or appropriately the last time she was in the Queen’s presence should have no bearing on the First Lady. After all, she is supposed to be setting her own standard. I for one, think that the Queen’s attire is completely dated.So, why would she care. Fashion has a pice tag! Shouldn’t she be more interested in whatever it is she does behind our supposed President? What is it she does anyway? Oh, that’s right! She is working on childhood obesity. What has she done with that lately?

    So, you live on a bare minimum and give all of your money to those who don’t work, right?

    Did you ever stop to think (there’s the issue I’m sure) that someone had to design and make those pieces of clothing? Why do you think those people should be put out of work, or should have their earnings cut, simply to satisfy your sense of guilt (at someone else’s actions I might add)?

    One only matters because of the hypocrisy of calling out the $990 shirt then wearing on that’s $6800. What they do with their money is their decision, it’s no different than a person opting to buy the cadillac instead of a chevy, but to call out the cadillac owner for spending too much, then turning to praise the rolls royce owner… that’s just pure hyprocrisy. The Romneys spend millions on charity, why can’t they enjoy some of their money themselves?

    It’s really not up to us to judge how others spend their personal money. I could say the same thing about you what you did about them. Instead of buying your $15 (or however much) shirt, why not give that money to a homeless person to eat for a day or two, or to a child who needs new pencils for school? I’m just saying that we could say something like that about everybody, but where does it get us? If you find spending money on clothes a waste, put it to better use. Every single time. Otherwise, it’s just plain hypocritical.

    Complaining that lots of hungry children could have been fed with the $900 or $6800 is beside the point. In both cases, the purchasers (Ann and Michelle) paid retailers, who paid wholesalers, who paid producers, who paid WORKERS !!! If the rich didn’t buy that clothing, the WORKERS would not have a job! Because Ann and Michelle purchased those items (with THEIR OWN MONEY, mind you), those workers are able to feed their children. And likewise the people at each point in the process (retailer, wholesaler, etc.) are able to feed THEIR children. Isn’t that better than giving everybody a HANDOUT ??

    Wow, all of you seem to forget several key points:
    1.  If you have a powerful position and want to make a good impression, you have to dress the part.  Hell, the Wharton School of Business teaches this basic lesson.
    2.  If you are being presented to Royalty, you certainly are not going to go in your Levi’s.  Let’s face it, President and Mrs. Obama have money (just like every other president we have had).  Why shouldn’t they utilize their funds (yes the First Lady does get a clothing allowance, as all of the other First Ladies did).
    3.  No one seemed to criticize Nancy Reagan on all of her designer gowns when President Reagan was in office.

     Do a little homework and see how much money Romney has donated!!  Even before he started making his BIG money, he nearly gave away all of the money he inherited from his father.  Compare that to Al Gore, who also comes from a very wealthy family and he’s not even on the same planet as Mitt.  Gore, Biden, Pelosi, Reid are among the tightest people in the world.

    It’s a catch-22…although, I don’t appreciate how the Obama’s spend “our money” she’s still representing our country. If she was to wear something nice from Nordstrom’s for $600.00 that she bought on sale, the media would have a field day with how tacky and unfashionable she is. Although, to me tacky and unfashionable is an understatement regarding her fashion sense, does she really have to spend so much money and still look like a cow?

  • Brett McGowan

    Catherine, you are the one missing the point all together.  Meals, bus rides, books, etc could that money buy is indicating that if they can spend that amount on clothes, then somebody should take away from them to give to someone else.  If you look at the charitable giving by % of income of both families, the Romney’s have done more to provide meals, rides, etc, than the Obama’s ever will voluntarily.  Based on reported incomes, $1,000 is a small % of their expendable income as opposed to the Obama’s income.  My question might be, who actually paid for that $7,000 jacket? Obviously, there is far more people able to afford these expensive items or they wouldn’t be available in the first place.  Who really cares, except the greedy and the takers, how much they spend on clothes.  Just keep it all above board and equal when reporting.

  • Victoria Wilcox

    Actually, lots of people were fed with both articles of clothing.  The people who made the shirts got paid, the people who made the fabric, the people who delivered them, etc.  That the simple law of economics.  When something is bought, someone gets paid.  Selling and buying is how we afford to live.  Yeah for expensive clothes that feed lots of people!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Catherine-Alexander/1495456521 Catherine Alexander

    YOU are missing the point. To ask the question “How many people could have been fed with that money?” does not necessarily mean I think that is how it should have been spent — only how it COULD have been spent, as a comparison to show the outrageous expenditure. It could have been spent to buy clothes for children who genuinely NEEDED them.

    Me, too!  No matter was Michelle puts on her body she will still look frumpy because she has no taste.  The Romneys earned their money; let them spend it as they see fit.  Obama’s problem is that he is spending OUR money without a care in the world and you can add his spouse to that MO.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Catherine-Alexander/1495456521 Catherine Alexander

    I have no problem with the First Lady dressing her part. But she need not spend $7000 on a shirt to do it (assuming it was not given or loaned to her by the designer). Kate Middleton dresses like the royalty she is without (typically) spending that kind of money.

    And I certainly recognize that people have the right to spend their money the way they see fit. But when Jeff Bezos gives 2.5 million dollars to support gay marriage, that tells me something about him, and I don’t admire him for it. How you spend your money is one of the ways people evaluate you. If you are a person who believes you can justify spending $7000 or even $1000 on a SHIRT that tells me your priorities are mixed up, and that you have a pretty high opinion of yourself — probably much more than you deserve.

    It is the land of double standards, they can do and say anything they want and we must follow whatever the MSM decides is best..Romney can’t send jobs to foreign countries as a private business owner, but Obama can as President, we must pay our taxes,but congress can do whatever they want..we must have obamacare but they can get waivers , they can say whatever they want about Republicans and their children but we are haters for being pro marriage and family.they can kill border agents , mexicans and blacks can kill blacks but when some sick white guy does it we need to talk about normal people’s rights..no one can buy a chicken sandwich because the guy loves his dad and wife and talks about it on Father’s Day, but they are pro people who will kill you for being gay and are building mosques everywhere.I am sick to death of their double A. standards..I don’t care what anyone is wearing, most of us haven’t paid that much for our whole wardrobe in a year..Could we talk about that!!  The Romney’s earned their money and gave more to charity then anyone they can do whatever they want with their money and that’s not our business..What is our business is Solyndra and Air Force One and everything else the taxpayer is funding that is like burning millions in a bonfire.

    Extend what has been said here, visa vie, Romney’s money he made, vs. Obama’s spending ours…to Corona del Mar, in Orange County, Ca. where Obama ran up a bill of over $35,000 and refuses to pay it…the Secret Service..refuses to pay it. (evidently they only pay for prostitutes).

    On the other hand, Romney spent approximately $10,000 bill in Newport Beach,  Ca. and he paid before he left.

    We’re still waitng for Obama to pay for his bill. Remarks in the L.A. Times are yelling that Newport Beacher’s can afford it and should pay it!

    Rick, if the Obamas have made their money working for the state, they have earned their money just as surely as the Romneys have earned theirs. People who work for the state deserve to be paid. And they have the same right to decide how they spend their money.

    If Michelle Obama’s clothes are paid for from her husband’s salary, her own savings, or even a budget provided her as First Lady, then she gets to spend it the way she sees fit. And I get to criticize her poor judgment, just as I criticize Ann Romney’s.

    This is true, and I would agree with you,

    that our media is hopelessly biased,
    that, rather than trying to fix our problems, both sides of the isle continue to point fingers at each other in order to increase their prospective votes at the next election,
    and that, as a people, Americans hopelessly buy into all this drivel, using it as a source of righteous fury, losing their ability to compromise, the very nature of politics.

    Michelle Obama should be criticized because she is not sharing her wealth enough. She didn’t get to the White House on her own. Millions of people along the way got her there. She should buy off the rack at J C Penney and distribute any money and expensive wardrobe she has among those that would like the same opportunities she has had. Isn’t that what the Obama dream is all about? 

  • susan

    EVERY person has the right to spend their earned income on what they want!  If either of these women want to spend this money on expensive clothing, that is OK…it is THEIR MONEY!!  The point of the article is how the MSM attacks one and praises the other.  And as far as charitable contributions for the “poor children”, the Romneys should be commended; the Obamas just recently bumped up their contributions (and paled in comparison) during election seasons.

    Tc, we all have our own opinions on Michelle Obama’s looks, but for the record I think she occasionally looks fantastic, and other times she is indeed frumpy. I think the $7000 shirt looked great — but then for $7000, it should have.

    First off, Im sure “The Washington Post” has different authors for their different articles. Secondly, the reason i’m sure Michelle Obama wasn’t called out about her $6,800 shirt is simply because the article wasn’t about that. The article about Ann Romney was to counter attack her and her husbands claims about being in touch with average Americans. The article toward Michelle Obama was to state her attempts to be more in touch with the extravagant Queen Elizabeth II. Also, the article about Michelle Obamas expensive shirt did not even relate it to her saving a strugglinhg economy (in response to the opening paragraph)

    Two different articles. Two different authors (I assume) two different purposes. So please, try to examine the situation a little more, and also try to refrain from any possible future claims of reverse racism, and Washington Post conspiracy theories -_- smh

    Victor, be careful calling any married woman a parasite. Both Ann Romney and Michelle Obama are probably, at this point in their lives, dressing themselves with their husbands’ money (unless the First Lady gets her own budget for clothes, which is likely). That does not make either of them a parasite.

    The Romneys earned their money by  ”working” to earn it. The Obamas see wealth as their right and love to spend the money of the American taxpayer. Ann Romney is a classy lady. MIchelle is, well, she’s not. When I see Michelle I think of her husband’s comment about Sarah Palin. You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.

    You are right most of the money Obama spends is our tax money – but- he did make a lot of money. Most of his money came from his socalled autobiography that is mostly fiction.  He had little money until he became famous and people wanted to buy his book. Michelle made a large salary at a hospital after the gov.(Barack) gave the hospital a large grant.

    A bit touchy, are we? That saying is the equivalent of our “you can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear”. That is not calling the person a pig, nor is the Spanish saying calling her a monkey, and even if it is calling her a monkey, that does not necessarily mean it in a racist way. The Spanish saying obviously was not coined to only call out Blacks, but people who make a vain attempt to be what they are not. In the olden days, when purple was worn only by nobility, they would say something along the line of “painting a pig purple does not make it a prince.”

If you are talking about our careers as athletes and how we got to the top and if you are talking about Mitt and his team, what they did to bring the games here a success, no one does it alone.

    Obama wasted $535 million of OUR money-as in the store that supports homeless and addicted women-your money, my money on Solyndra.  Think about that.  Romney took the olympics from $400 million in the red, to a $100 million profit.  President Obama has taken our country from $9 Trillion dollars deficit to $15 Trillion dollars deficit in 3.5 years.  I’ve made up my mind.Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/hannity/2012/07/31/exclusive-olympians-romney#ixzz22FDaYlMg

    I am a believier that most of our Gov’t is corrupt now and has their hidden motives and agenda. We fight wars for their monetary battles, the business practices put costs on our shoulders to bare. The Tax and spending is out of control! All the money given away to secure business and policy doesn’t come back to the people just the big business. In the end we serve there needs. Not right. They should pay their own policy kickbacks, greasing pockets, and aid. these countries make the money and put on our backs. Sick of it!
    Obamas agenda is terrifying and so many peole are blind to the ” what the world will be like when it happens”.  I think they fantasize that it is some romantic notion to rebel, revolt, to overturn a country, and cannot imagine what a country that has so much to lose will be like when divided and at war……   The most powerful nation on earth ( for the moment)  Think about all the people used to freedom.  most of these people have lived in little bubbles never understanding what other peoples of america are like ( culturally) We varry greatly! And sadly will not bend when it comes to destruction of our world.  
    How and why this man has been able to do the things he does ( illegally ) and cannot be held responsible amazes me…..   Why is that?  We don’t even need a president in office to function correctly!  Why is it then that this phony is allowed to stay and pursure his agenda?

    When Michele goes shopping, I believe she is spending our money not theirs. It is an expensive account. If it is their personal money that they earned, then they should spend it on anything they please. Even if they earned it with books or speeches, it would be theirs. I have a problem with spending our tax dollars on the parties and using Air Force One for vacations, etc. I don’t think that is their own money. That is much different from what Romney did.

    When I read/hear what wealthy people do with their money, my first realization is how many people, charities, animals etc. could be helped with that money.  Did either woman NEED to spend that much money on a BLOUSE?  Did they even need another blouse?  Ann Romney is used to spending that kind of money on her clothes but it doesn’t make it right; in the White House, Michelle et al are living in high cotton and nothing she does invoves thinkng of other people.

    This is BS. Michelle
    Obama’s $6800 Made-In-USA jacket was stimulus for US
    economy. Ann’s $980 shirt sent American dollars & jobs to Europe – in classic Romney fashion. Here is research
    indicating the shirt was made in Italy:http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20120503141047AAt3EgT Furthermore
    Michelle Obama, famous for shopping at J. Crew & Target, was attending a
    state dinner with the Queen of England, Royal Family & heads of state at Buckingham Palace during the
    International Olympics, not a morning TV interview like Ann Romney when she wore
    her $980 Italian shirt.

    What we can infer is that normal everyday outfits for Michelle Obama & Ann Romney come with vastly different price tags. And if anyone wants to say the taxpayers paid for Michelle Obama’s outfit, prove it.

    The $6800 Michelle Obama pumped into the US economy was multiplied exponentially, and Republicans and Democrats alike should thank her for buying this expensive American-made jacket.

    “At least Ann spend their money, earned money, whereas the O’s spend our money”

    Oldlady, are you aware that the President is paid a salary? He is being paid for the job he was elected to do. That it ultimately comes from the taxpayers is beside the point. It’s HIS money. It isn’t fair to say the taxpayers get more say-so over his salary than over Romney’s. If you don’t like Obama, don’t vote for him, but don’t begrudge him the money he earns as president.

    “While kids go hungry and families loose their homes, she goes shopping with BO golfs.” 

    Well, that’s almost incomprehensible writing, but I get the gist of it. If Romney wants to be president, shouldn’t his wife be already acting the part of a First Lady? The same kids are still going hungry, and the same families are still losing their homes, while she spends $1000 on a shirt, and tens of thousands (hundreds of thousands?) on a dancing horse. How is she different from Michelle Obama?

    And once again, a reminder that President Obama makes a salary, for crying out loud. Every time he buys a hamburger or his wife buys a $7000 shirt, it could be pointed out that they may be spending THEIR OWN MONEY. That it originated with the taxpayers is beside the point. He earned it for being elected, just as every president does.

    Youre completely right Catherine. I was just overexaggeratin my opinion of how people tend to be hypocritical with their judgement. Im sure not every person that commented on how obama should use his money , donates to a charity regularly themselves. Alot of these people im sure, do not even REALLY know where the money came from for michelle to buy that expensive piece. Either way, Ann & Michelle both were rocking expensive pieces. We dont know for sure, who or where or why they had it, so why are people resulting to name calling SPECIFICALLY to michelle obama and attacking her? I feel like we are old enough to have realized that anything was possible, and unless one was actually with michelle while she took some money out her little taxpayers money hat and used it to buy her piece, no one should be assuming, on either OBAMA OR ROMNEYS SIDE. But im glad you got my point instead of deeming it irrelevant

    I do not care what Ann Romney wears or drives.  That is her business.  As the First Lady, Mrs. Obama very much gives me HUGE concern with her lavish lifestyle. How many American families who have lost homes and furnishings and jobs would the cost of Michelle’s pricey jacket have fed and housed?  Has she no shame.  Apparently not.

    Well, it is too bad that the first lady picked what appears to be a skirt from a rack at a beach side resort to wear with this beautiful jacket.  Maybe they were all going for a swim after tea and she had her swimsuit underneath. This woman needs some serious fashion help. I would say that the only thing that was stimulated at Buckingham Palace was a collective groan.

    Please stop yelling. Let’s see, Ann Romney’s husband is a hard working man that has unusally good business accumen and made millions of dollars. That is a fact. Michelle Obama’s husband never held a paying job, uses the People’s jet, Airforce One for personal vacaions, and as far as I know, Michelle doesn’t have a job and doesn’t collect a paycheck.  So, it stands to reason, that she has no money of her own and is used (too used) to using taxpayer money.

    new2la, President Obama gets his money through a salary he is paid. He earns that for having been elected to the job of president. Yes, the taxpayers pay his salary. That’s how it works. But how he spends the money he makes and how the Romneys spend the money they make should be held to the same standard.

    Both shirts were paid for (presumably) with money earned by the husband of the woman who bought it, although it’s possible the First Lady is given a clothing allowance.  In this case it is largely irrelevant that the First Lady’s shirt money source was tax dollars; it was money earned by the President.

    As far as we know, neither Michelle Obama NOR Ann Romney have paying jobs right now; as far as we can tell they both are using their husbands’ money, and there is nothing wrong with that. If Michelle Obama is using her husband’s salary as president, she is not exactly “using taxpayer money,” at least not in the sense you and so many people on this thread insist on believing.

    The Romneys’ have given more to help others than you could earn in a lifetime.  The obamas’ have given $300 according to them.  Romney inherited millions from his father and gave every penny to charity; he donated his salary as governor during his 4 year term, and has worked for no pay at various times during his career.   Noting that, I would say that Ann Romney is entitled to spend $900 of HER money on a shirt; on the other hand, Michelle obama is NOT entitled to spend $6800 on a shirt she purchased with other people’s money (US Taxpayer) that she will wear only once so as to impress a Queen of another nation.   And if asked, it’s a safe bet to say the Queen was not impressed.

    Ann Romney almost certainly gets her money from her husband, and there is nothing wrong with that. But Michelle Obama almost certainly gets hers the same way — from her husband’s SALARY as the President of the United States. That is not exactly the same as “at taxpayer’s expense.”

    I am a registered Republican. More specifically a tea-party conservative.

    I do not consider myself racist, nor do I make any attempts to be prejudiced toward any race. However, our party’s platform seems to “earn” us the title of “racist” because it’s a very effective way of skirting the political issue at hand.

    Regarding being “anti-gay”, I believe in the Biblical definition of marriage, a man and a woman. I do not believe the government should be able to legalize gay marriage because the church originated the institution of marriage. However, if they decide to give gays the same benefits under the law without them being legally wed then I see nothing politically wrong with it. Grated it’s against my personal beliefs, but not my political ones.

    Lastly, I am pro-life. In all cases, including rape. I believe the government has the responsibility to protect the unborn’s right to life, liberty and the future pursuit of happiness.

    I hope this clears thing up.

    I mistakenly posted this elsewhere. XD
    I am a registered Republican. More specifically a tea-party conservative.
    I do not consider myself racist, nor do I make any attempts to be prejudiced toward any race. However, our party’s platform seems to “earn” us the title of “racist” because it’s a very effective way of skirting the political issue at hand.
    Regarding being “anti-gay”, I believe in the Biblical definition of marriage, a man and a woman. I do not believe the government should be able to legalize gay marriage because the church originated the institution of marriage. However, if they decide to give gays the same benefits under the law without them being legally wed then I see nothing politically wrong with it. Grated it’s against my personal beliefs, but not my political ones.
    Lastly, I am pro-life. In all cases, including rape. I believe the government has the responsibility to protect the unborn’s right to life, liberty and the future pursuit of happiness.
    I hope this clears thing up.

    CSGZERO: I am not a Republican. I am a conservative. There is a difference, since many Republicans, like most Democrats, are progressives. I dislike progressivism (which is not the same as progress, although progressives would like us to believe that). But I often vote Republican since it is, to me, usually the lesser of two evils.

    As a conservative, I do not appreciate seeing “pro-life” lumped together with “anti-gay” and “racist.” Those are prejudices. Being pro-life is the opposite of being prejudiced. And assuming that someone’s being conservative makes him a racist homophobe is bigoted itself.

    That I do not support the gay lifestyle or gay marriage does not mean I am “anti-gay.” I am not against gay people. I am against their choice of lifestyle. I do not necessarily believe gay people are born that way (no “gay gene” has been found, and the human genome has been mapped). But I do believe that most gay people did not make a free choice to be gay. How it happened remains a mystery; perhaps it was a problem in their childhood gender-identity development. But if they believe they have been that way as long as they can remember, I will not argue with that. They have my sympathy and compassion, just as anyone with an addiction, a compulsive behavior, bad habit, etc. does (including myself). But their desires are disordered. They go against nature. Their insistence that the rest of the culture adapt to their disorder is not helpful — not for them, and not for the culture, and especially for the children in our culture. Gay people themselves claim only 10% of the population (this is not supported by science, which indicates 2-4%). But if gay people are correct in their claim, 90% of the culture is heterosexual, which means the best place for children is with heterosexual parents. Gay marriage threatens that.

    There are people who identify themselves as conservatives and/or Republicans who are racist and homophobic; there is no doubt of that. Some of the racism can be seen on this thread. But having those characteristics does not automatically indicate that someone is conservative, and being conservative does not automatically mean that someone is racist or homophobic.

    Similarly, being liberal, progressive, Democrat, or Libertarian does not automatically mean that someone is compassionate, intelligent, and better than people of other political persuasions.

     Jeb, I consider myself a conservative, and I have seen several racist comments on this thread. They may not have used the “N-word,” but they didn’t have to. Characterizations like “madam obammy” pretty much speak for themselves. And there is a similar Facebook thread where Mrs. Obama is repeatedly called “Moochelle” (like a cow?) and vulgar, childish remarks are made about her backside. 

    I’m sure all those people would vehemently deny that their nasty comments are racist, but I would disagree. I can smell a racist conservative pretty well; they do exist, I’m sorry to say.

    As a libprog, how do you redeem yourself from the socialist lifestyle and enslavement to the government nonsense you promote?  Personally, I like people, but I don’t have to like the things some would like to force me to accept.  I don’t subscribe to organized religion, but still have a firm belief in the Almighty and would die defending my beliefs.  I would never accept the islamic garbage we are being forced to recognize–why should I?  The Constitution recognizes a person’s right to religious beliefs, but it  does NOT recognize those organizations pretending to be religious and are bent on usurping our government and our Constitution.  I don’t care what you do in your bedroom–keep it there; we call it privacy.  Don’t waltz around in public and demand that I observe because you think your preferences make you special.  And don’t, if you are black, tell me that certain words in the English language are forbidden to be spoken by non-blacks when you use those words on a daily basis to insult not only your mothers, but the rest of the community as well.  The only reason you claim you are having a “hard time understanding” what a republican is, is the fact that you use selective listening and reading–you refuse to loook at the big picture.  I am an independent, but used to be democratic.  However, the democratic party has reduced itself to the moronic level of despotism, cronyism, and tyranny.  It is a disgraceful means of representing any country–and I for one do not want any part of it.  And FYI—blacks are more racist than any other group; they were that way long before I left the idiotic dems.  And I think you are just as racist as they are.

     ”At least Romney is using her own money.”

    Anita, you have absolutely no way of knowing that. Reason suggests she paid for it with money earned by her husband (not that there is anything wrong with that). But if Mrs. Obama paid for her shirt with money earned by her husband — from his salary as the President of the United States — how is that any different from Ann Romney?

    By the way, it’s people who use offensive (and probably racist) characterizations like “odumbos” that make all conservatives look bad. Do the rest of us a favor and vote Democrat, or better yet, just stay out of politics.

    The First Lady went to Spain with her daughter on a shopping spree on our dime. She said she was bored and needed a trip to shop. As for Romney giving to charity, that is what we all should do. Then there would be no need for these entitlement programs. It would take the control from the government and put it back where it belongs ­ The People. It sounds like you like control IcameŠ You must enjoy giving up your freedoms and constitutional rights. Tell me you don’t know what an expensive account is?

    YOU don’t consider yourself racist, and don’t make any ATTEMPTS to be prejudice. Nice way to get around the question. But, without “considerations” and “attempts” (whether you mean to openly be it or not) , are you racist? Yes or No. It’s as simple a question as asking are you male or female.

    Next thing, I already know you might take this as a total sign of hatred and disregard, but really this next statement is test: I really hope that you have a child that grows up to be a lesbian, and in turn she is treated as negatively and poorly as many lgbt children are treated, and in turn attempts suicide a number of times as a result of her homosexuality, as many other LGBT children have. and she in turn is raped by a family member, and in turn, before the baby is even close to development, it is sure that the individual will be born with major defects due to an act of incest. I’m just hoping this crazy situation on you to see how you handle things when it is your own family that becomes victims of these circumstances.

    Michelle can write this jacket off on her taxes too.  More than likely it was paid for by we the taxpayers anyway because it was an article of clothing worn to represent the United States.  That is a normal rule for one in office.  A cop that buys his own uniform is reimbursed by the taxpayers.  This was a nice jacket and perhaps the best she ever looked…..normally she is pretty frumpy regardless what the press says.  As for Mrs. Romney’s silk T-shirt, well she can afford it, the tax payers do not pay for it, and the money for something like this also benefits the society that she purchased it from.  I guess you can say charity.  The press doesn’t tell you these things because they are idiots.

    Sandie, the point I was making is that being First Lady is indeed a job. Certain things are expected of her, and among them is making personal appearances, meeting important people, representing the President and the American people, etc. If she is given an allowance for clothing suitable for that job, I don’t have a problem with it, and I don’t understand why any reasonable American would have a problem with it.

    The problem is not that she has or needs a suitable wardrobe. It’s even that she should not receive some sort of budget or stipend for that — if she doesn’t, she should. The problem is that the First Lady is not a queen, and should not have expenditures like that. If Ann Romney is a potential First Lady, she should not either.

    First, how do you know the shirt Mrs. Obama wore was paid for with “our” money? If it was a gift, or a loan, or paid for with her husband’s salary, it wasn’t “our” money.

    Second, we should all care what the Romneys do with their money, because it tells us a lot about what they will do with ours if he becomes President.

    If a man spends his money on child sex trafficking, is that our business? Of course it is. If Jeff Bezos gives $2.5 million of his money to support gay marriage, is that our business? Of course it is. It is ignorant to suggest that we should not concern ourselves with how other people spend their money. Sometimes it’s none of our business, but sometimes it is very much our business. We should be able to discern the difference.

    I am well aware of the magnitude of Romney’s weath and his benevolence. My point, perhaps not very well made, has to do with the amount of wealth, not just in this country, but world wide that sits in people’s accounts and never benefits anyone but the owner.

    You questioned why it would be wrong for her to deduct the cost of her clothing and my response was directed exactly to that. If you meant your point to be different in that post, you should have made that point instead.

    As to what you say your point is, I disagree. The 1st lady’s hubby makes $400,000 /yr with a $50,000 non taxable expense account (as of 2001 – in 2000 it was $200,000 + $50,000), and he can certainly afford to dress her appropriately to do the meet and greet that he wants her to do. The taxpayers elected/hired the president, not his wife. She functions or not at his discretion and thus she has no individual salary. He is responsible for her support, and any reasonable American would understand that. If that isn’t clear, think of the big CEO whose wife is expected to function socially with respect to him as the 1st lady does with the Prez. She doesn’t get a separate salary from the company for it, her hubby provides.

    You are also contradicting yourself. You say the 1st lady should have a budget/allowance for clothing, then on the other hand you say she “should not have expenditures like that”.

    stillwild1111, I thought it was comparing her to an actual monkey, which is extremely rude and pathetic.  So saying it was not racist is a cop out.  If you’re going to say something either rude or racist, at least have the ‘guts’ to admit it is rude or racist, and do not try to turn it around on someone else. If I insult someone, I take responsability and/or credit for the insult.

    Each former president and vice president can take funds allocated by Congress to help facilitate their transition to private life. These funds are used to provide suitable office space, staff compensation, communications services, and printing and postage associated with the transition. They also get $$ for travel expenses, Secret Service protection for family, etc. However, if he is impeached – he doesn’t get all this.

    Yes, islam IS now reduced to garbage by the INFIDELS who run around murdering innocent people throughout the world because these victims refuse to accept the bastardized “religion” that it has become.  As for the shar’ia, if you like it, go to the middle east and live there—perhaps their lifestyle is something you crave.  And by the way, I have yet to meet a truly peaceful islamist–they are all terrorists.  I never said a thing about the muslims, unless they are also islamists.  It is understood that not all muslims are islamists, but all islamists are muslims.  Now if you have a problem sorting that out, you really are living in a sinkhole.  And it is also A FACT that blacks are more racist than any other group and that  they commit more crimes then any other group…get off your high horse and go back to your political HQ and tell them what a failure you are because you couldn’t convince your opposition to fall for your line of garbage/crapola/hoya…..talk about ‘selling opinions as certitude,’ you take the cake.

    Apparently, even if you simply call them “the president and the first lady”, you are still being racist because you omitted the term “african-american” from the phrase, thereby ignoring the fact that they are “african-american”.  And by ignoring that fact, you are being racist by default.  But, if you refer to them as an “african-american president and first lady”, then you are being racist becuase you felt the need to label them as something other than white.  Understand?  Unfortunately, idiots actually believe that crap.  Kind of like the un-Sharper Won above.

    Exactly, but apparntly it is no racist when Sarah Truesdell above says, “White People.” There is your true racist. By the way racism is everywhere. You have to be totally naive to think that there are not Black or Latino racists. Anyone who believes that,  is not of this world. Ever since Obama has gotten into office all I have heard is racist comments towards whites, but the NAACP lets that slide. Hey, the New Black Panthers can say to other blacks, “You must kill white people, you must kill white mothers and their ******* babies, but that is not racist. Oh, there is more, Eric Holder can allow the Black Panthers go free, even after they threatened white people from voting. Eric’s response was, “White people have done far worse throughout history.” So, apparently it is true that Eric Holder will not prosecute Black on White crimes. Apparently, that is not racists? You have Nancy Polosi walking out with an oversize gavel saying the TEA PARTY made racial slurs and she felt threatened. A $100,000 reward was prepared for anyone who could hand over the video showing there were racial slurs by a TEA PARTY member. Guess what, no tape, no reward given! So, Nancy was caught creating a racial division between blacks/Latinos against the TEA PARTY, I wonder why? Every single mass shooting has been blamed on the TEA PARTY. Wow, since the left believes te TEA PARTY is made up of only whites, is this not racism? Now in every case the person who performed the terrorist acts was a left leaning thug. So, who are the racists, really! Now Obama attacks Mitt’s religion by utilizing his thugs, but don’t call that reigious bigotry. The fact is that you can be a racist, and you can be bigotted, as long as it is against white people, and that my firends is pathetic. There are many of our youth who have been taught that whites are bad. Those who play sports or work together, do not look at each other as Black or White. We all get along, because we see ourselves as Ameicans, but the liberal left refuses to let go of racism. They can make racism out of anything, as they have attempted to do on this site. Don’t believe me just watch an sitcom on T.V. or any movie and the Whiteman will be portrayed as an idiot, a person who doesnot have rhythm, or can’t jump or is a red neck. Heck, if Hollywood portrayed Blacks or Latinos the way they do whites there would be riots by progressive community organizers. Yet, Sarah Truesdell learned in her high school to hate whites by progressive community organizers who taught Sarah, it is okay to hate whites. White people are bad and everyone else is good. What Sarah further was taught is that America has a violen historyand its founding fathers loved slavery. Nothing could be further from the truth, but that is the goal of progressives. Lie and lie lot until people will eventually believe it.

    I think it is an issue because the Romneys keep trying to show that they are like every average America.  I’ve not seen the Obamas make that clalim, and they do not have near the wealth the Romneys do.  And, when I buy a jacket, it is way more than 7 times the price of one of my T-shirts.  Mrs. Romney went to an interview, a rather everyday occurance.  Mrs. Obama went to buckingham Palace.  Two WILDLY different occasions, two different pieces of clothing.  But leave it to Mr. Beck to tell people there is a comparrison there, knowing there are many that will eat it up because they either cannot, or do not want to see the discrepencies.

    I think this society is going nuts with always assuming everything is “racist”.  This is an old Spanish saying – it is most often used to refer to a woman who has no idea how to dress in an appropriate and elegant way, or who has no class, and is often used to describe “nouveau riche” people.  It’s the level of genteelness, not the fact that they look like a monkey.  It means that fancy clothes cannot remake a person’s ability to function in polite society.  It has traditionally been a refinement reference.  It is definitely not racist.  Only people who are focused on being insecure about race or who don’t have any idea of historical Spanish culture would say this is racist.  Oh dear, now, if I were like that I would say people are racist against Spanish culture!!  LOL See what I mean????

    And while we’re at it, a good example of Michele Obama’s lack of ability to be appropriate concerned her attire and demeanor at the Vatican.  It was disrespectful.  And her touching Queen Elizabeth II.  And in many circles, it is considered rude for a man to even eat a meal in shirt sleeves at certain events and she is constantly showing up in sleeveless outfits.  This is so inappropriate.  Her attitude is that she is above the norms of polite society that have existed for years to show respect to others.  But she and her husband are very self involved.

    Obama has not earned is own money in HIS OWN eyes.  Remember he is saying small business owners didn’t sacrifice, and take risk and build their own businesses because they used public roads (paid for by taxpayers INCLUDING them) or that they didn’t build their businesses because “someone must have helped them”, so if he applies that to himself, then his money is not his either, because he would not have earned it without the public having elected him to this office (no one would have been interested in his book without that) and he used public roads to travel on his campaign.  So if he doesn’t believe in private property, isn’t it a little weird to have a wife that dresses in clothes that expensive?

    Your comment is not racist lady bug, it was actually very intelligent. TheSharperWon apparently thinks black people are monkeys, and that my friend is racist. Catherine Alexander, has also bought into Blacks being apes and again that is insulting and racist. Summer217 has also been trained by the progressive left to believe all monkeys are black people, again insulting, obtuse and pathetic. Today you can say the word screw and instead of meaning a screw, it now means sex. The word pig in the 1960′s mean’t police officer by the progressive left. Progressives have done everything they can to pollute the english language in such a way that you can accuse any white person or black conservative as being predjudice. For those who are Latino or Black just remember that the progressive left tolerates you as long as you remain a radical, but as soon as you become a conservative, who loves America, its Constitutional Republic and its Founding Fathers you will be branded as a racist, even though you are black or a latino. You will be hated and attacked, so no one will listen to you. The liberal progressive democratic party is no different than the slave owners in the late 1700′s. I watch as they manipulate blacks and Latinos or votes. They tell Blacks and Latinos that we will tax the rich and take their wealth and make your life better through government programs. They tell the blacks and Latinos that the rich are evil and d not pay there fair share. What is pathetic, is the Obama administration speaks to you as though you are idiots, that you are uneducated and that you wll not take the time to get the facts. Obama, believes you will count on the government taking care of you and that you will actually believe the rich are evil. Here are the facts: 51% of Amercans do not pay taxes. The rich pay approximately 70% of the total tax liabiity, thus the midde class pays the remaining 30%. This means that under Obama 51% of the people are either under employed or unemployed Thus, the issue is jobs. If you tax the rich what Obama wants to tax them it will run this country for 4 to 6 days nd that is it. So, why is Obama making a big deal out of this? Because he is trying to create class warfare. He wants you to believe he is helping the poor. The fact, he is counting on creating race wars, but in the end he is looking for votes and power. When he gets another four years you will see you life styles drop. Why? Because Obama believes in sharing the wealth and tht means sharing the United States wealth with the world. So remember, those who believe they are poor ae not poor when compared to the rest of the world. In fact, you are rich. Thus, when Obama gets his way your status must necessarily go down in order to evenly distribute wealth throughout the world. The race card played by Obama and may on this site is a ruse to get your vote. In the end, you will see you have been taken for a ride by Obama, while the big bad whiteman, Mitt believed in free enterprise which would have created more jobs and thus allowed the 51% to have jobs that paid for a higher standard of living. What is the catch? Everyone must be willing to work, we drill for oil and we place dollars aside for real alternative technologies. We have an opportuity for America to be great again, but we can’t if we buy into this racst bologne.

    Given that it’s not in stores yet, I’d bet that Obama got that jacket for free from the designer, since she was going to be wearing it at a major national event (because designers think rich people should get lots of free stuff). Whereas Sarah Palin spent not her own money, but her donors’ money on fancy clothes to make herself look better. 

    You seemed to miss a part that you emphasized, Glenn, which is that she’d been *criticized* for not dressing up more for the queen. So she wore something expensive, that she probably got for free, to BUCKINGHAM PALACE for a dinner with heads of state, while Ann Romney wears thousand dollar shirts every day, because that’s what she does. How is this even a comparison?

    Wow, that comment is dense! First of all, Ann Romney is hardly a disgrace. Her husband *earned* his money, and – more to the point – is defending the traditional American view: Earn your money, and spend it as you like, and nobody will criticize you or get in your way. Obama and his husband have been screeching about “the rich”…and then they go blow $6800 on a *jacket*! More their mythical 99% would or could ever spend on something like that. I’d bet you have things in your closet for which you spent more than necessary; I’d bet you could – if you chose – paid less for a skirt, a shirt, some shoes, or a blouse. Does that make you a disgrace?
    The problem here is precisely the *OPPOSITE* of what you seem to think. The hypocrisy is obvious and multilayered. We have the Obamas – champions of “there comes a point where you have enough money” – spending like drunken sailors; and we have the media (just as you say, but in reverse) shrieking in outrage about Ann Romney’s $900 shirt, but swooning in delight about Obama’s jacket, that cost about three times as much. Double standards and hypocrisy abound.

    Very well said. The progressive liberal wants to keep the poor and uneducated in an underclass, much like slaves, to do their bidding – keeping the ultra-rich Hollywood and Wall Street crowds’ hands clean and full of money. Thanks for doing the math. If you want to know what is going on in this administration and in this election, simply stop listening to the race card and the religious card and the greed card and the bigotry card and – do the math.
    And it makes me sick that Ann Romney is criticized, while Michelle can wear & do anything she wants – even when it is completely inappropriate. After the first shock when she wore a gold sparkly coat set at the inauguration and then, a sweater set when she met the Queen of England, nothing she has worn has surprised me. Puleeze. I guess it took a while to get enough of our money to dress better. How about all Obama’s Hollywood friends who wear thousand-dollar teeshirts?
    Ann Romney has fantastic style and would look great in a flour sack. But that’s okay. Ann Romney doesn’t have to wear ten-dollar teeshirts to prove she’ll be a great First Lady. I can’t wait!

    Hypocrisy is the name of the game. Liberals have never played by the same rules they expect Conservatives to play by and Obama worshipers are the greatest hypocrites of them all. Romney is blasted on his experience while Democrats seem to forget Obama had none in 2008. And truth be known, golfing 90 times, partying every week, taking 18 vacations while Americans are having trouble putting food on their tables, having dinners with Muslim Brotherhood representatives, campaigning over 150 times doesn’t count as experience in my book. He is still unqualified to run a dog shelter much less be the leader of the free world. Facts are nasty things, aren’t they?

    With the Looney Left you can’t win. Their minds were warped long ago and will never be untwisted enough to have the mentality of a normal human being again. Facts don’t faze them. Truth is unrecognized by them.

    It will take a while to undo the damage Obama has done to USA but we may never be free of the idiocy that put him in the White House in the first place.

Far right extremists are in the minority. Of course I’m a liberal Democratic Obama supporter; I never lied about that! It’s in my profile; I’m proud to say it out loud. So what in the world did I lie about?

    I think the Obamas are simply taking advantage of all the opportunities to fill their coffers they can because neither of them will ever have the savey to earn the kind of money Romney has on their own merit as he has.  They are green with envy.  Romney has more experience in his little finger than Obama has in his whole body or even in one of his ears.  Please America, wake up and try to see the forest for the trees.  We need honesty and integrety in our government.
    And Reid’s attack on Romney about taxes is breaking one of the 10 commandments.  “Thou shalt not bear false witness.”  I’m ashamed he is a member of the my church.

I would be more interested to know about the apparent $77, 000 tax break one of these ladies receives for a “dancing horse”? Most families receive $1000.00 per year tax break for their children. Seems a little off center to allow that and provide such breaks for a horse. I’ll be interested to see the responses and if this remains on this board.

    No, when you criticize a black family and call the wife out of her name, and insult her with terms such as, “mowchelle,” “MOOchelle,” “monkey,” and go on to go on off topic about how much you dislike her( you as in general) because she has a big butt O_o (which mind you, is a highly reminiscent characteristic of most of the African American female community), thennnnnn YES. That kind of talk does make one sound racist.

    Just as if I were to mention Romney and the term cracker in the same sentence, others will think it is racist as well. We’re human beings, we assume. Cmon now, you act as if you’ve never been in touch with the real world before.

  • Anonymous

    The big difference is that you cannot PROVE by facto, unless you were with either of the ladies when their expensive pieces were received, that Ann Romney paid for it with her own money, and Obama did not.

    See, there you go again assuming btw. Can someone be rational and not be a “libprog” at the same time. Sheesh, earlier, Catherine clearly stated that she was conservative and against progressives.

    You, on the other hand, CJM2, seem not only to be against progressives, but PROGRESSION of the human race as well. Can one not defend a person of a political party without being considered apart of that party. Catherine is a perfect example of probably one of the only unbiased people in this whole commentary. You obviously are not.

    I’m guessing you don’t know the definition of certitude, because nothing I said I have said was certain. I simply ask for people to back up their opinions since they choose to be so opinionated without any facts to support it.

    And so what if it’s been in the news? The point is not about their tax returns, the point is specifically referring to the EXPENSIVE PIECES WORN BY BOTH ROMNEY AND OBAMA. whether either ones tax returns looked iffy and ones didn’t, does not at all prove where exactly the money came from to buy such expensive pieces, if it was even bought by them at all.

    If you give money to a homeless person. The next day you see them using drugs. How in the world do you now it was exactly YOUR donation money that went to his drug habit? Don’t be cocky now. Saying whose money was used for what is merely an opinionated ASSUMPTION.

    It makes plenty of sense to me.  It is well known that Ann Romney is a very wealthy lady.  She Can afford expensive clothing and cars.  However, when my tax dollars fund anything for a First Lady and she wears expensive outfits, I want to know IF my tax dollars are paying for that.  If memory serves me correctly, Laura Bush was never blamed for wearing high cost clothing, also she had her Own money.  I do Not know if Michelle pays cash for the Very expensive clothing.  When Ann Romney is First Lady, she will wear what she buys with her Own money.  I Will bet on that. That, Catherine, Is the difference.

  • Anonymous

    Can you please quote or reference anything Catherine has said that slanted to the lib prong point of view, and why you think it does? Don’t worry, I’ll wait… And seriously, I mean quote, verbatim. Not conjur up what you THINK her statement meant and take it out of context. Literally reference exactly what she said in either of her comments that made her out to be a liberal. Because all I recall her saying is basically no one should be praised for such expensive wear, especially when none of us know for a fact how the pieces were obtained.

    And so you’re telling me you would ntdefend a libprog for anything under the sun? That’s making you completely biased. let’s switch the parties here. If in the situation the obamas were republicans, and the Romneys were democrats, who would your comments be defending?

    Last but not least, I beg to differ that liberals are antiAmerican. But that’s just my opinion. Now why I say this is because, notice the word “liberal” and “liberated” are one in the same terms. Both relate to FREEDOM. Also note, that America was founded by fathers looking for FREEDOM, and many of thenfoundingnfathers were even AGAINST religion. I’m saying this because I’m tired of people claiming America to be a CHRISTIAN Nation, found by Christians for Christians. NO, this is a FREEDOM COUNTRY. Stop trying to rewrite history to fit your religious beliefs. There is no freedom when you’re pushing your morals down other peoples throats . If then US was founded onnchristian religion, it would say so, which it clearly does not. So unless you can find me an excerptnfrommthe constitution holding America to be the pot only meant for Christians and people of certain beliefs other than LIBERATED FREEDOM, I stand firm in my comment.

    Btw, for all those who are mad when people are non-religious believers, and say that it makes them anti-American, please just remember one thing. “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.” (Article 6, section 3)   This provision was radical in its day– giving equal citizenship to believers and non-believers alike.  The founding fathers wanted to ensure that NO religion (and yes, that includes you Christians ;)) could make the claim of being the official, national religion, such as England had. (and as many Christians seem to do anyway, even though they claim to be proamerican, but cannot even abide by their own consitution. Hmmm)

    The word you use to describe our President is rude and has no use but to stir the pot.  It does not matter what color anyone’s skin is.  That, CJM2, is my opinion.  But I can agree that the Obama’s tend to spend lavishly and with our taxes flipping the bills for bottles of wine at near a hundred dollars each, well that is beyond lavish.  Especially when so many Americans are in homeless shelters or sleeping in their cars.  That is sickening.  $6800.00 for a jacket? OMG.  I am going to the store Sales to buy school supplies for our community as many kids have no money to buy those needed supplies. The banks in our area, all have bins for us to drop off school items.  Glenn, If you read this, PLEASE pass the word on your radio show.  Let’s get everyone involved.  THis is a nation wide situation and especially in rural areas and in the city areas of Sect.8 housing.  Thanks in advance.

    Yes, liberal and freedom go together. 

    The freedom to force people by proxy (taxation) to supplement their incomes when it comes as a direct result of bad decisions and lack of ambition. 

    The freedom from having to bear the responsibility for piss poor life decisions through shifting blame or playing the race / victim card. 

    The freedom of demanding that people recognize your “rights” while stomping on the right of another that does not follow the liberal doctrine.

    This entire country is going to HELL in a hurry. There are so many issues that need to be addressed for the good of this country. And yet, the attire of the candidates wives are what seems to be making the headlines!  If either one of these ladies think that they are setting an example, they are.  The example being…”I don’t care if there are sick and starving people out there. I have to wear designer clothes and spend a lot of money or someone will think I have bad taste.”    What they should be doing, is giving money to the homeless, ect.
    I honestly don’t give one big s*** as to what they wear, as long as the money did not come from government funds.  It seems like they would know that more folks would have more respect for them and even, maybe be impressed enough to vote for them if they weren’t so vain. They don’t have a clue as to what the average person has to deal with. Maybe they should go to a grocery store and take a look at what our elderly and poor have in their shopping carts. Most people, myself included, would love to have to money that these women spend on clothes, to buy food.
    And, why is race always a factor. The things that happened long, long ago are over and done with, no matter what color you are.  The people that are alive today had nothing to do with what happened then and history cannot be changed. Maybe all government officials and their wives should wear identical uniforms!  That way, at least, they would be even at the starting line.

    Michelle Obama was going to meet the Queen, and for all we know the jacket on a President’s wife could very well be an endorsement for the designer and possibly could have been borrowed.  Mrs. Obama has been shown time and time again wearing modestly (as in real middle class clothing) priced clothing while I’m sure Ann Romney wouldn’t every consider shopping the places Mrs. Obama has.  There is one very BIG difference between a $900 ever day shirt and a $6800 jacket worn for the Queen of England. Besides Mrs. Obama does not own a very expensive horse, she has a dog ( or I should say her family has.)  Now don’t get me wrong. I have a couple of friends with M.S. and neither owns a horses, but I can see that riding one would be somewhat helpful.  Certainly much more helpful than having an insensitive husband running for president if I had M.S. nevermind had previously had cancer.  Finally, would Mrs. Romney wear her $900 shirt to see the Queen.

    You people are simply rude and still ignorant.  Truth of the matter, I am as far away from a liberal as anyone can possibly get.  What I am is a Christian, who happens to be African American.  That being said, I understand that out of respect for a human being should not be said simply because it is simply the right thing to do.  I wouldn’t dare call a policeman a PIG.  Not appropriate.  You all missed the point, be respectful.  Funny, I am not an OBAMABOT, can’t stand Sharpton, Jessie and most misguided African American political pimps.  I am independently conservative.  That being said, respect is always in order.  Unfortunately, the more insulting, sarcastic and rude your are the better in this thread.  Indeed, Mrs. Romney can wear whatever she wants, regardless of what she paid for it, her money and thank God, she earned it.  Yes the media is biased and liberals have a way to go to get to reality.    I understand and agree with most of what is said, but what is sad, is that folks do not understand or respect the fact that you don’t use or refer literally or figuratively to African Americans as apes or monkeys.  Sad!  Call it what you do or don’t want to call it.  I call it ignorance.

    Bill Clinton was forced by Newt and the Republican Congress to address Welfare reform and deal with the problems facing our country.Jesse Jackson nearly had a stroke over Clinton accepting the Republican reforms.The Keynesian economics approach that is the European model of economics has never worked and Europe is a prime example of the failure of Keynesian economics.Obama is trying the same failed system in America and you are starting to see the total economic collapse of the American economy. You need to take a basic course in Economics 101.

  • greywolfrs

    I agree with most of what you are saying, but there is one point I believe you are wrong on. Respect is earned, NOT given. A person needs to do something to earn respect, they do NOT get it simply by holding a title or being elected to a position. It really depends on what they do while they are there. Obamao (Michelle or Barack) has done NOTHING to earn respect. In fact, one could argue that the latter has done everything they can to divide this country further. That does not even take into account the lies this man has told, which are numerous…

  • greywolfrs

    You are an idiot of epic proportions. Obamao campaigned on everything that was NOT GWB, yet has changed NOTHING. He has continued the exact same policies as GWB. He has spent far more than GWB to try to accomplish it and failed. He has had 4 years to stop the out-of-control spending and only spent more. He has had 4 years to get unemployment back to around 5% and failed horribly. He wanted to be out of those “foolish wars,” but followed GWB’s timeline for Iraq and we are still in Afghanistan. He has put us in more wars. Drones flying over Yemen, Uganda and Libya, just to name a few. GWB may have to own his part, but morons like you don’t want Obamao to own their part, imagine that. Dunce.

    WOW! Another dumb left winger, imagine that. First, saying that those inalienable rights, in the constitution, come from the “creator” would mean “god” was the one who gave them to all. Second, most of the founding fathers were English and either Catholic or Protestant, both “Christians.” If one wants to understand why the First Amendment exists, particularly the freedom of religion, one only needs to look at history and people like Henry the 8th or Bloody Mary. Third, you sanctimonious left wing idiots are pushing your morals and standards on other and you have the nerve to talk people pushing their religious beliefs? That’s called hypocrisy and you epitomize it.

    So, stand firm in your stupidity and show the world exactly what you are.

    Sorry, Len, but ‘apparent’ can mean there is no truth to the amount stated–perhaps it is a matter of semantics.  And therapeutic animals are tx deductible from what I hear; if you have the IRS ruling on ths, please let us all know so we will have an absolute understanding.  And so what if Ann Romney owns  more than one horse and uses them for show–it does not necessarily mean she is using them as illegal tx deductions.  Besides, many owners of horses bred for racing evidently do have some sort of tax deductibles for the care of those horses (it is a business, you understand).  So why all the fluff about Ann Romneys’ horse?  As for the tax returns–the Romneys have already released the REQUIRED returns (the past 2 years) and there were no problems with them.  On the other hand, the liar in chief releases NOTHING–yes, he did provide 2 years of tax returns, but there were questions pertaining to them-illegal deductions, maybe?  Seems to me obammy has som explaining to do–not the Romneys.

    Slavery was a horrible thing, but if this country is so racist…..and the black community is so badly treated in the USA…..I think the US Government should buy a first class ticket on a flight to Africa for every single solitary person who wishes to return to their homeland to live.  I think it is horrible for people to be forced to live in a country they hate, and where they must remind others constantly about the slaves in their families who lived nearly 200 years ago, in order feel good about themselves.

    Those who wish to go live in Africa, and help build that country into a great nation, should immediately be given the opportunity to do so. 
     
    I realize that what I am saying might be taken wrongly, but all communities in this country need to either decide to be a part of the entire community, or just plain, be shown the opportunity to leave.  After all, the black community’s ancesters were sold into slavery by their own people 200 years ago, and that just isn’t fair to those in that community who are living today.  Surely, if they hate this country so much, they should be given every opportunity to correct what was done to their ancesters, 200 years ago. 

    I think it should be put on the ballot in November!  We should vote on giving every single unhappy “African American,” a first class plane ticket, with all the trimmings, to go back to live in Africa.  I am absolutely sure that they will even be able to trace their ancestry to the very areas where their families lived 200 years ago.  I think it is only fair!

    Does Ann Romney wear her $990 designer shirt while driving one of her two Cadillacs?The very wealthy Mitt and Ann Romney have often been painted as out of touch with average Americans. Ann’s pricey shirt will not help her husband change those perceptions, no matter how many Laundromat photo ops are on the campaign’s daily itinerary. On Tuesday Ann wore a colorful silk T-shirt with a large bird print by Reed Krakoff during an interview with her and her husband on CBS’s “This Morning.” Fashion blogs quickly tracked down the “The Reed Audubon Silk Shirt” and noted the whopping price tag.
    But now with Michelle Obama they are saying:
    Michelle Obama has been criticized for not dressing up enough for Queen Elizabeth II, so she stepped up her game Friday night at an Olympics reception for heads of state at Buckingham Palace. The first lady wore a very fancy J. Mendel capsleeve jacket — “white viscose techno crepe tailored jacket with overlapped side panels and silver embroidery” from the 2013 Resort collection, according to a press release from the company. It’s not in stores yet, but high-end retailer Moda Operandi listed the jacket at a princely $6,800. The White House declined to comment.I am so sick of the two faced Democrat’s.  And the teeming masses’ are either too ignorant (most likely) to do their homework or too stupid to care what the truth is just so long as he is spewing lies and keeps it up.  If the idiots would check his records they would see the lies.

    The Obamas are pro’s. at trying to fool the American public,they try to deceive everyone into thinking they are just one of the folks , Obama is a multi millionare, so is Mitt Romney, but to hear Obama talk(scream, is a better word) to the people, he wants them to think he’s an average Joe. Here is a man that has a brother living in a hut, in Kenya,but never gives him a cent, yet he preach’s to  Americans to share everything. He’s good at spending the tax payers money but won’t spend his own,maybe the American people,paid for Michelle’s jacket through a new found loop hole in the white house.

    That picture of the corner in the log cabin reminds me of home,  I forgot how long ago it was,,,Thanks for the memories boys,,,the tears of happiness of days gone by flood my memories with joy,  You have inspired me to “force” the kids to assist me into making a log cabin.  Time to get out the old tools. I still have great granfathers wooden wood planes,crosscut saws and axes.  This is a good way to reinforce those good ole fashioned work ethics. 
    Thanks Glenn, you inspired me with just a photo.

    $990.00 for a TEE SHIRT!?!!! You people are out of your minds!! I pay maybe $12.00 for a tee shirt. I paid, for my nicest shirts $25.00 on sale.  Just seeing this ‘contoversey’ on facebook made me wonder AGAIN about the loose screws that are running this government. No WONDER this country is is such rediculous debt.

    There are several sayings about ’ turning a sows ear into a silk purse’.. putting lipstick on a pig..pitbull…something, doesn’t change it from what it was originally. Michelle is the greater spender with the lousiest taste. She hasn’t been able to dress herself appropriately except for the odd occaision where she must have had help… Left to her own devises, she comes off as trailer trash..

    Who cares about who is wearing what?…. Its about American’s winning the gold medal in London… The Constitution of the United States of America… The Declaration of Independence… The Bill of Rights… Michael Phelps is among if not “THE” greatest at the Olympics… If the communists want to wear Armani but gripe about what TRUE Americans wear… Then the communists in OUR country should move back to europe, china and russia and stay there where they can sit and live with communist laws there and be ruled by the obamas there… NOT HERE!!!.. lol……

    I do care what the Romney’s do with their money because if they are fiscally conservative with their money they will be more prone to be so with mine.  Who needs a $1000 t-shirt?  That is a little out of step and out of touch with the rest of us.  And Michelle Obama wearing a nearly $7,000 outfit is ludicrous.  They are all out of touch with what the rest of us are able and or willing to do.

    I think we should stop tearing down the people who WORK for their money and simply try to learn from them. If The white house wants open records about so much, what about the college records of Mr. Obama? The Romney records are more open than the Obama records. What happened to openness and clarity?

    It’s even better in Spanish because it rhymes: “Aunque vestido de seda, mono se queda.”

    Ha! Wow. Ladybug2948 didn’t make the slightest allusion to race, yet how quickly you made the inference. The saying is the same and has the same meaning and intent of description regardless of race. It’s actually a very popular saying south of the border, where pretty much everyone is “brown”.

    Oh, and btw, having lived in central america for an extended time, the thing that made me laugh the most about human nature was that the light brown people were always making racist remarks about the dark brown people. As a pasty white guy, all I could do was laugh at the propensity for people EVERYWHERE to divide by differences rather than unite by purpose.

    In regards to stillwild1111, I agree with you it is not racist!  It is a saying in a different language.  And I wish people would get educated in this country and quit with what they “want to be identified with.  The only true African-American, is someone born in Africa and has moved or their parents are American ( think US Bases)  These people are Black American.
    I do not identify my friends as French Americans, German Americans, Euroasian Americans.
    It sounds pretty stupid.  An American is a person who was born on American soil.
    and   “African” and the word negro both mean the same thing Black.
    The O’s do not have a clue about the real struggling America that we live in today they are too busy spending our money on a vacation every 6 weeks, and wild parties with the highest price tag for their Hollywood friends.  I do not think it is proper for a first lady or sitting president to be on tv shows of any kind, unless it is a debate.  They are classless.  I want MY House back!

    God in Heaven, you racist heathen. Unbelievable to see this written down despite the location. It’s always the most self professed godly that spew the most hate. Oh and minor point you idiots……………..taxpayers do not fund her wardrobe. Ever. The expensive outfits tend to be donated for publicity so that argument is BS too.

    Actually, the saying is, “La mona por más que se vista de seda, mona queda.”

    A similar saying in English would be, “You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear” or “Fine feathers do not make Fine Birds” or “You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.”
