The First Lady’s Inaugural wear yesterday cost much more than $15,000.

Meanwhile, in the real world, incomes are dropping.
In 2011 the annual median income was $26,364 in America.

That means Michelle Obama’s clothes for Inauguration day cost more than half as much as the median US income.
She feels your pain.

    Michelle Obama: “Liberalism for thee, not for me.”

  • http://! l.barney

    Anyone remember she wore RED when the Chinese came calling? Somewhere the Communists are laughing-at O voters for foisting him on for ANOTHER FOUR YEARS!

    Red is the color of good luck in CHINA-for the rest of us, not so much!

    Meanwhile, she sits with her arms on the table – shoveling food into her trap – while rolling her eyes at the Speaker of the House.

    I’d call her a Wookie, but Chewbacca has better table manners and better social skills.

    DON’T CARE, anymore about her. I realize she will continue to force the food police down our throats but just looking at her makes me sick.

    We have bigger fish to fry. Our nation is in a Battle for OUR RIGHTS, right to work, right to exist in a free nation under God, right to eat, drink and be ourselves, so long as it doesn’t harm others. We are good people and because of the Obama’s we are becoming a nation that is divided and feel we must stand up to a President who insist on taking more of our freedoms away. He is spending more than any other president and insist on bankrupting our nation and tax the wealthy out of of 2/3 of their income. There is no accountability for his actions, yet, being a dictator as he is he is counting on us to pay for his extravagance.

    Our nation is faltering economically as more entrepreneurs are hiring less and producing less. The real issues weren’t address yesterday and that would be spending, budgeting, debt, jobs and true recovery. So, for their personal spending on vacations, clothes, party and whatever we now can see that there is a complete dysfunction in the White House and no intentions on tackling the hardcore problems we are facing and the damage and debt we are laying at the feet of future generations. Obama again, has divided a nation in place of uniting one.

    If you spend that kind of tax payer money, you should look a lot better that she looks. What a total waste of money. just think how many house notes could have been paid or food shelters could have been stocked. What a bad day for our country.

  • Patty

    The days continue and years have past and I cannot think of anything the Obama’s have done to truly help Middle Americans feel like they have some dignity. They both are so depressing and so arrogant it is sickening and what does the media do, ADMIRATION, LETTERS OF LOVE, TICKLES UP THEIR LEGS.

    The disgraceful treatment of Bush and disgraceful way in which Benghazi was handled the arrogance and hate continues with no accountability whatsoever.

  • Sasja

    Who cares anymore? We have a republican congress who are content to stand idly by and watch as our once great country is destroyed from within and without. If I could get to DC, I would personally slap each one in the face after I spit on them and it would be worth the jail time, I am so incensed.

    I will comment that a price of $50 would have been too high for that ugly creation.

    Gallup: Obama average first-term approval ratings among lowest in modern history

    A Gallup poll released on the morning of Barack Obama’s second public presidential inauguration shows that his first term was marked by a level of public disapproval exceeded in the modern era only by Presidents Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford.

    Obama “averaged 49.1% job approval during his first term in office, among the lowest for post-World War II presidents,” Gallup said Monday.

    “Obama’s first-term average is most similar to Bill Clinton’s. Lyndon Johnson, John Kennedy, and Dwight Eisenhower were the most popular first-term presidents.”

    The president’s job approval rating was highest — 57.2 percent — during his first year in office. His worst-performing year was his third, during which only 44.4 percent of Americans approved of his work in the White House.

    Obama’s 48.1 percent approval rating in the fourth year of his presidency also ranked third-worst among modern-era presidents who sought re-election after a four-year term. Presidents George H.W. Bush and Carter, the only two in that group to lose their re-elections, were also the only two to fare worse by that measurement.

    Gallup: Only 39 Percent Have Positive View of America

  • cavt

    Nothing is too good for the king and queen. Louis was known as the Sun King–maybe Barry should take that title.

  • http://! l.barney

    I guess I count myself in the 38 percent. No one seems to see or care that thanks to Kig O we are now virtual slaves tot the whims of terrorists, that we have to have King O grovel to China for more money to keep us afloat. Yesterday Diane Sawyer even showed pictures of King O and and how gray his hair is now. Please, they all get gray! A family member agreed.
    Then there was the manage to their “growing girls”. I was so angry I snapped, “please when Bush’s daughters were mentioned they were described as “partying drunks!”
    Unfortunately I had to stop-people were becoming angry at my snide remarks and that I should respect the president. Hell, I don’t have to LIKE him!

    I feel like I am in an outer limits world. These people really believe King O cares for them and our country- but as I told a cousin: “What it he doesn’t give them what they want? What it they riot?”

    With the way King has been shooting his mouth off about the rich and such, my worries cannot be unfounded.

    God help us and save us!

    Rosebud: you nailed it. Whatever she wears she’s still fugly.

  • Roger

    The Obama’s are good examples of what of what low intelligence people can achieve when they decide to lie and steal.

    I get the fashion statement with accessorizing the outfit in black, but what the heck is with the purple gloves. Or is it just her hands are that color from all the blueberry pies and ice cream she scarfed down before the start of one of the party’s. I’ve heard 175 people did not get their dessert.

  • Robbie

    Who cares? Jesus Christ, you people are desperate if all you complain about is the price of a dress for the INAUGURATION. I’ll personally call her to see if she’ll pay for the procedure to help y’all grow testicles. Now THAT is ObamaCare.

    And you were right out front to defend Sarah Palin, weren’t you, hmmm?

    Frankly, I could do without the mean comments about the First Lady’s looks from all sides, over the years. But it’s just a little damn late to get after these people, after what’s happened, before, so just STFU.
