people that steal your money don't spend it wisely.
that said, i'd hit it.
I don't mind her clothes, in fact, despite all the continual bashing of her style I actually think most of what I have seen her wear is nice. I do object to the large ticket items pointed out like the jets and accommodations. If these political leeches want to have entertainment it should be on thier dime. If they have official functions to attend then they should have a strict budget.
You theft dollars at work... As usual... I bet she thinks she is the black Jackie Kennedy too... Sigh!
End The Fat
70 pounds lost and counting! Get in shape for the revolution!
Really? Are we here to talk bout liberty, non intervention, peace, prosperity, sound money and Ron Paul or are we here to discuss the First Lady's outfit? This is stepping LOWER than Fox News. We all know there's a laundry list of good reasons to criticize the president and his wife but this is wasting everyone's time.
Look at me wasting my time responding to you!
For an elite spending less than $2000 on clothes to an award show is actually quite thrifty. Not here to defend her, but she also is the first lady to wear vintage clothes, wears target brand, etc. Sure it's all for show and doesn't matter, but then again: WHY ARE WE DISCUSSING WHAT SHE WEARS? simply a non issue.
So bottom line, poor attack, poor delivery, waste of time and you paint a negative image on the DP. You are what I would call: THE CANCER.
Let's get back to the issues, folks!
The "First Lady" is held up as a role model, this is part of the skanking of America. I consider it a very pertinent problem, since we are, as a nation, grooming our children to be compliant prey for the pedophiles running the governments and churches.
Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.
an executive family similar to that of a Monarch that possesses an ideal social image that we should all strive to conform to? If we start judging individuals by their clothing choices rather than their actions we're headed in the wrong direction.
How about we worry about ourselves and not judge others.
This post is much more Tea Party than Libertarian, if you know what I mean... and something Ron Paul probably would never lower himself to comment or discuss.
Ron Paul does not discuss the Franklin Scandal, or any of its ongoing ramifications. But hey, that is why we are here, to discuss the things he finds too "hot."
Too many folks on this thread are caught up on the cost of Michelle's garments. They say because her clothes are expensive, they must be tasteful. What a foul view.
Back in Roman days, when silk was first introduced to Rome, it was as it is now an expensive luxury, and highly prized.
"I can see clothes of silk, if materials that do not hide the body, nor even one's decency, can be called clothes. ... Wretched flocks of maids labour so that the adulteress may be visible through her thin dress, so that her husband has no more acquaintance than any outsider or foreigner with his wife's body." - Seneca the Younger
It will take more than liberty to fix this republic.
"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." - Benjamin Franklin
What we SHOULD be doing, instead of playing politics.
It's a universal method of communication. Mrs. Obama is not wearing price tags. Most people can not read the tag inside the clothing to see which company made her clothes. It's not about money. So what other message is she sending by wearing this outfit to a Kid's Choice Awards ceremony? Is this appropriate, especially around children? Is this the way we want our kids to dress- your daughters? It can not successfully be argued that what she wears is of no concern to us. She represents us as the respected wife of an elected (we presume) official. If our children do not consider her a role model we still must realize that many of the neighbor kids do. And those kids will be living alongside ours. It's a basic issue of modesty and respect.
what are some of these posters here gonna do when they can't scream RAAAAACIST constantly. They need to realize that the reason people don't criticize obama more is because they are afraid of that label, especially in DC.
or anyone else. Hate black people? fine -just keep it off DP
if the first lady was a white woman?
would that race card you pulled work?
why wasn't this done to Laura bush?
maybe she didn't dress like a cheap date
who uses mountain dew as mouth wash
If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence
Can anyone imagine Laura Bush dressed in that outfit? Or Pat Nixon, or Jackie Kennedy - or even Hillary.
That's too funny a visual to even compare.
I have been officially, called a RAAAACIST by Reconstitutor001. For any who can't see me, I'm hanging my head in shame and my eyes are welling up. May I should just slink away into the night. I may even kill myself......... Nah, I'll just consider the source and keep going. lol
i said people have the right to be racist. if you are, then good for you.
And yes , people should consider the source.
Good luck getting people to the side of liberty, with posts like this.
did you? I not only read the verbiage, but also between the lines. It would be hard for me to be a racist, lol, but you can insinuate it anyway. And you're a fine one to be speaking of liberty.
huh? Maybe you just feel like crying over this.. She looks like a skank. Plain and simple.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.
Got any links to share??
or do you only have insults and hot air?
you classy people have a blast on this thread!
ass, you might be able to see more than the turds on the tip of your own nose.
Just because you haven't taken the time to look or have chosen not to because it's easier to stay ignorant doesn't mean this hasn't happened to a lot of presidents and their family.
Your link proves ZERO.
over 5 years, and you still don't understand freedom of speech. lol
Sure buddy. I've been here long enough to spot the idiots and I'm looking right at you..
It's obvious that you are a class act sir
How's that hoochie mamma defense working out for ya.
from the Active Forum Topics Column, it's going very well thanks!
I've seen many replaced with newer stuff all the time. This is entertainment mostly so I can understand it being moved.
And you too.
but in a 'fair' universe, ALL POTUS admin would have to pay for their own clothes, food, gas/heat, electricity, and food (um, you know...kinda like how every single one of us has to do??), out of their own salary, aside from 'official' govt functions. And would list the cost of every event, before the event commences.
right... in an actually 'fair' universe that is.
yeah... if that were so, we would've gotten rid of every European 'royalty' derived 'pomp & circumstances'-rituals: red carpet, servicemen as backdrop props (hell, ANYONE as 'props' for that matter), marching band, parade, inauguration coronation, lavish 'diplomatic' dinners, etc. a loooooooooooooooooong time ago.
the only question one should ask is: What Would Ron Paul do?
Or, more apropos of this, what would Carol Paul do?
Obvious fashion taste aside, would Mrs. Paul waste taxpayer money on this crap? No. And Ron wouldn't even have to remind her not to: they're from the frugal generation. They simply do not waste money/currency on worthless things.
Potemkin douchebags, all of them; the more illegitimate, more lavish the ritual: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WqIDqWOJ0A
Now if all manner of the State is done via rituals, ie black robes, imposing temples, monuments/statues, idolatry, militant marches, ridiculous uniforms, even more ridiculous alchemical metal trinkets *cough* I mean medals & badges, tithing (the 60~80% kind in taxes robbery)... doesn't that literally define it a religion??

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul
Please vote this kind of 'joke' down. We are BETTER than this.
Look, I saw a liberal attack on Rand Paul's hair and his short stature.
I recall hearing liberals on the radio call Ron Paul "the turtle" because of his age..... "Did you see the GOP debate last night? Who was that turtle up there?"....."Oh you mean that crazy nutjob Ron Paul, what racist quack. Now they are really dipping to the bottom of the barrel to pull out this David Duke loving yokal from texas who says he was a baby doctor"...... "A baby doctor?! Yikes, I don't want no racist gran-daddy turtle to be president, are you flipping kidding me!!."
Talk about how Michelle Obama lost her license to practice law and why. Talk about her socialist leaning speeches and explain why those ideas don't hunt. Talk about how her ideas, the good or bad ones.... but don't do this kind of low-life political attack.
Please down vote and get this off the DP.
