Ann Romney's $990 blouse sets off a media firestorm

May 3, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Washington Post

It is called "The Reed Audubon Silk Shirt." A yellow-hued falcon swoops across the front; its prey appears to be Ann Romney's right tricep.

Just more proof that RINO Mitt Romney and his wife is out of touch not only with 99% of Americans, but with reality. He doesn’t care about the poor and he likes to fire people… and now his wife is wearing a $1000 blouse… they might as well have sat there eating a big crystal bowl of luxury delicacy caviar.

Last week alone, Mrs. Obama was spotted in two different L'Wren Scott cardigans, priced between $2,000 and $3,000.

BTW, I hope Mitt's first act as president in January 2013 is to install a car elevator in the White House.

President Romney won't be able to move in right away anyhow, they'll have to fumigate first and it can months to get rid of the stink of communism.

Yet not a word about Michelles' lavish wardrobe.......The Left is sure having to make jackasses of themselves in order to try anything to "demean" the competition. Pitiful. I never thought I would see Dems deteriorate into such Trash.

They are defining themselves as brain dead morons to keep raging on Mrs. Romney. If they had an ounce of CLASS or basic integrity they would shut the F up about anyones wives, mothers or children.

REALLY? The Dems playing a ongoing game of "how low can we go" is seemingly endless. Are they trying to lose and election and America's respect? Attacking any Man's family is not Kool.

Queen Ann is measuring the White House lawn for stables. After all, although she loves that other women have difficult lives, she will not be without all of her little 1,200 lb (neigh) luxuries.

She cannot be expected to rough things when her turn in the White House comes around.

She is in great shape and a lovely human being to boot.

Queen Ann the blonde bimbette pales (LOL) in comparison.

Queen Ann the POS misogynist is running for First Lady although she says it is 'her turn' and is entitled to the position.

She is fair game as are any of her adult brats.

What if *you* had several million dollars to spend the way you wished? Are you going to go to Wal-Mart to shop for your clothes? No, you won't. I don't have near the money these people have, but I am not about to let anyone's clothing drag me kicking and screaming into a class-warfare argument. This subject isn't really worth debating.

The Romney's give more than their share to charities. A lot more than some presidents that I could name. If they were frugal in their charitable contributions, then this might be another story. But they aren't.

What difference does it make to you what her clothes cost? She has the money. Let her wear what she wishes. Now, if she were in the WH and my dime was purchasing her clothing, then I might have a comment to make. But she isn't. Let the poor lady along - oops, no, that isn't a pun. lol

'nuff said.

Sarah Palin spent big bucks on her wardrobe too.

Who will ever forget her 2008 run for Vice President, along with the way she'd run up the McCain Campaign's credit cards for spending on fancy cloths for herself and her family?

It's good to see Ann Romney gets some benefit out of being married to that stiff of a husband...

--From Balenciaga and Helmut Lang to Michael Kors and Marchesa, the first lady has been known to wear some big-name, and expensive, designer fashions. Last week alone, Mrs. Obama was spotted in two different L'Wren Scott cardigans, priced between $2,000 and $3,000.

Last Thursday, Mrs. Obama wore the designer's peach embroidered cardigan to a Take Your Child to Work Day event at the White House. The very next day she wore another, similar version in white with red embellishment to greet troops at Fort Stewart with the president.

[...]

Mrs. Obama is familiar with the public tweaking for her pricey choices. During her Hawaiian vacation last December, the first lady was spotted wearing an almost $2,000 sundress by designer Sophie Theallet to church on Christmas day. Later, she reportedly donned a $950 Comme des Garcons skirt for a visit with troops and their families.

"President" Romney?
That would mean the communist are moving in.

Everyone knows that Tea Party revolutionaries fear and hate socialism about as much as the Antichrist. Which is funny, because the Tea Party movement’s dirty little secret is that it owes its existence to the grandaddy of all Antichrists: the godless empire of the USSR.

What few realize is that the secretive oil billionaires of the Koch family, the main supporters of the right-wing groups that orchestrated the Tea Party movement, would not have the means to bankroll their favorite causes had it not been for the pile of money the family made working for the Bolsheviks in the late 1920s and early 1930s, building refineries, training Communist engineers and laying down the foundation of Soviet oil infrastructure.

Our investigation led us again and again to a handful of right-wing organizations and think tanks directly tied to the Kochs. We were the first to connect the dots and debunk the Tea Party movement’s “grassroots” front, exposing it as billionaire-backed astroturf campaign run by free-market advocacy groups FreedomWorks and Americans For Prosperity, both of which are closely linked to the Koch brothers.
Here is a better historical fact, one that the Kochs don’t like to repeat in public: the family’s initial wealth was not created by the harsh, creative forces of unfettered capitalism, but by the grace of the centrally-planned economy of the Soviet Union.
The Communists were so impressed they kept giving Winkler-Koch business and regularly sent Soviet engineers to train in Wichita. It was a sign of growing mutual trust.

"Yet not a word about Michelles' lavish wardrobe"
Could it be because the subject of the article is about ANN?

"If they had an ounce of CLASS or basic integrity they would shut the F up about anyones wives, mothers or children."

Isn't that what you just did?

Just a week ago michelle O had a purse from the same famous name brand and the cost of it, a purse, was $900 Why do some of these website and tv station channels report just some things and not other things? Obamas are millionaires. In my book that makes them rich. Neither one of them has ever had to have a real job. Why can millionaire michelle wear a 900 dollar purse and Anne R can't wear a 900 dollar blouse? Because you exactly do not want anyone to know that another millionaire paid for a very expensive clothing item. You want the out of touch thing to seem real to those people that know not how to think and just get caught on the emotional hook you put out. I hope to God she is our next first lady. Let's bring some respect back to our leadership. Thank you I approve of this message.

Liberal democratic liars have got to lose It is high time they lost Especially this bunch Why make some special deal about a man being first black man a president. Can't you get off the skin color thing?
No that's the liberal ticket.
I just saw a real d!ck on mtv a black man standing on a corner in L.A. saying that "you got me all messed up homey after 400 years of making us your slaves you think I'm not going to hate white people?" You see white people it just goes to show you there you are thinking how perfect and good you are so the white women vote this person in office and what have you done for what you see in the mirror? Nothing. These people are going to hold that slave thing against you your grandkids their kids and then their grandkids and on and on. The only way blacks are truly going to be happy is if they know that everyone of them is better than a white person because they have all the jobs and white people better not say nothin negative bout 'em. And now if a brother knocks you down and starts beating your head into the ground You better just let him do it OR else you will be the next George Z. Why do black people rally for whatever their made up causes are and white people don't do anything but let them spit on them.
