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.

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

Actually, I heard those shoes were $10,000 and Vera Baker works for Bishop Romney's campaign.

I just hope that sassy Queen Ann covers those elbows when she goes to Mormon temple. It sure doesn't look like she's wearing the required underwear for that outfit. Frankly, I don't like that Ann, but I have to accept her because I'm for Bishop Romney 100%. He's charmer and most of all, he's Mormon-American. I'm converting and we stick together.

I can't speak for all my southern evangelical friends who take the Holy Bible word for word, but I get all emotional when I think of that glorious day when Bishop Romney puts his hand on the Book of Mormon and swears to uphold the Constitution of the USA so help him Joseph Smith.

THE POOR ARE DOING FINE enough with the poor and the people who did nothing with there lives and now are bitching about it, who didnt further there education bounced from job to job ect. pretty soon the programs for a helping hand will no longer be there since we seem to spend more then we take in,
For decades, the U.S. Census Bureau has reported that over 30 million Americans were living in “poverty,” but the bureau’s definition of poverty differs widely from that held by most Americans. In fact, other government surveys show that most of the persons whom the government defines as “in poverty” are not poor in any ordinary sense of the term. The overwhelming majority of the poor have air conditioning, cable TV, and a host of other modern amenities. They are well housed, have an adequate and reasonably steady supply of food, and have met their other basic needs, including medical care. Some poor Americans do experience significant hardships, including temporary food shortages or inadequate housing, but these individuals are a minority within the overall poverty population. Poverty remains an issue of serious social concern, but accurate information about that problem is essential in crafting wise public policy. Exaggeration and misinformation about poverty obscure the nature, extent, and causes of real material deprivation, thereby hampering the development of well-targeted, effective programs to reduce the problem.

Even if I could afford a $1000 blouse I don't have any reason why I would buy one.

Apparently, I'm supposed to be angrier about what Mitt Romney and his wife does with their money than what Barack Obama does with mine.

BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLUKE TOGETHER…………………………

Obama administration urges freer access to cellphone records...

Gov't seeks more than 1,700 secret warrants...

Al-Qaida memo praises ABC and CBS...

MSNBC 'good and neutral' until it fired Keith Olbermann...

How many times in how many speeches did Obama rant about how unfair it was that Buffet's secretary paid a higher rate..........turn the page and it was found Obama's secretary pays a higer rate than he does.........plus he pays women 18% less per year than the men with the same jobs......he is a fake, a liar and a Marxist.

how quickly we forget Michele Obama's $600 tennis shoes she wore to a soup kitchen. Talk about being out of touch for a photo op.

How can the Obama's and members of Michele's family go on 4 vacations to Hawaii at the tune of 11 Million per trip. Not mentioning the cost for Air Force 1
Why was it allowed for the Obama kids go to Mexico on spring break and trips overseas.
Air Force 1 is in the air more then it's in the hanger. Jet fuel is paid by the tax payers at 18 dollars a GAL

Why is the tax paying for Michele mother to live in the WH

Why was it allowed to have the bowling alley in the basement of the WD taken out and reconstruct a basketball court.

Time to halt all the useless spending under Obama and ground Air Force 1

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.
Michelle actually worked for what she has. The Republicans have been trying to Paint Michelle and Barrack as elitists for the last four years. Now look at who they pick. The best part is when Ann tries to tell everyone about how rough she had it.

Obama signed a bill 2 months ago that made eating horse meat legal in the US.
This is legal in France
This means chopped beef could be mixed with horse meat.
Next will be dog and cat This is legal in China.

Obama stated that he ate dog when he was a kid
See where America is headed
Horse owner community is up in arms
