Commenting on her own taste of clothing, Michelle Obama once said: “Everything in my closet is something that I love. So that I can make choices based on what makes sense, knowing that I’m going to love whatever it is.”
What's there not to love about $2400 designer dresses?!
And while the First Lady was once quoted as saying that, "Someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more," apparently THAT "someone" is someone other than her.
In any case, there's an old saying that says, "Birds of a feather flock together", and if Michelle and Barack married one another, they must have something in common, right?
The common denominator?
Well, first of all, Luxist reported in 2008 that:
"A spokesman for top Italian designer Giovanni Bosco has confirmed that President-Elect Barack Obama is looking to purchase a $30,000 Harmony ring made of rhodium and encrusted with diamonds as a thank you gift to his wife Michelle....One of the world's rarest and most precious metals, only about 25 tons of rhodium are mined each year, setting the price at over $7,660 per ounce -- or about ten times the cost of gold. The ring may be uncharacteristically extravagant for Mrs. Obama, but we're sure she'll find a way to wear it with all her usual grace and confidence."Heh...
But the biggest common denominator between Barack and Michelle is, well, that they're both a couple of phonies!
The Liberal lamestream media is now reporting that Michelle Obama wore a $350-400 dress to the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday, while Ann Romney appeared at the Republican National Convention with a dress that cost nearly $2,000.
Hmmm, suddenly the First Lady is toning down her extravagant lifestyle?!
But what will become of those lavish, high-priced vacations? And the $2,000 a night suites at the Sebastian hotel?!
$2000 suite for one night's sleep - almost as expensive as her Barbara Tfank designer dresses.
And what will happen to the $2000 dress that Michelle wore last year at the Christmas Day church service at the Kaneohe Bay Marine Base? The aforementioned dress was designed by the French-born, U.S.-based designer Sophie Theallet, and - according to an ABC News celebrity blog - it would have cost Michelle almost $2,000 when she purchased it in 2009? [More recent designs by Theallet sell for even more.]
What will become of all those luxuries?
Conclusion: Michelle and Barack are, without doubt, a couple of shammers, phonies, frauds and fakers, aided and abetted by the drive-by media.
