My guess is that Michelle's sneakers were one of those gifts you aren't supposed to take if you are first lady.

Jack is Back!

Yeah, but does Nordstrom's carry them?

Sue

Nothing sells for more than $14.98 except for anything that does sell for more than $14.98. Great story but for that little bit.

verner

I wonder if Oprah and Michelle have the same shoe size.

As for Marbury--fabulous. Kids don't need to wear $100 sneakers to be "somebody."

jean

I didn't even know sneakers could cost $540,but someone needs to tell our First Lady to buy her slacks one size larger.

Been to a Steve and Barry's recently, Tommie?

Didn't think so.

$450.00 tennis shoes and they "only recently" paid off their "college loans". I want to know how much and when?

http://www.charlotte.com/112/story/572303.html>Michelle Obama:

"They don't want the whole pie expensive sneakers," she told the women. "There are some who do, but most Americans feel blessed just being able to thrive a little bit with inexpensive, functional shoes. But that is becoming even more out of reach."...

"The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie their outlandishly priced footwear so that someone else can have more."

Get a grip! Did any of you complain when Condaleezza Rice was out shopping for pricey shoes instead of dealing with Katrina--or did you all CONVENIENTLY forget?
Or do you expect Michelle Obama to run out and buy cheap tennies just for certain occasions?

Gabriel Sutherland
Been to a Steve and Barry's recently, Tommie?
Doubtful. Steve and Barry's filed for bankruptcy protection earlier this year. Not to suggest that Stephon Marbury and his sparkling acumen for promotion had anything to do with it.
peter

As Secretary of State, Condie Rice really did not have a whole lot of responsibility vis-a-vis hurricanes, unless it was to seek diplomatic sanctions against Haiti for not taking the full brunt of the storm before it went north.

bad

The Obamas are newly rich and making newly rich mistakes. Michelle's attire is scrutinized by the press and regularly reported in detail. Wearing $540 shoes to a food bank for a service photo-op is tone deaf, especially when the president pays lip service to leading by example and shared sacrifice.

That's why the Obama's have advisors... who are obviously overpaid.

Sue

Viewer,

Get a grip! Did any of you complain when Condaleezza Rice was out shopping for pricey shoes instead of dealing with Katrina--or did you all CONVENIENTLY forget?

Find me the quote where Condi Rice complained about her student loans while making $250,000 (which is rich now, but wasn't when Michelle complained about student loans), where Condi Rice told me I had to give up a share of my pie so someone else could have a piece, and I'll GET A GRIP. Until then, enjoy the snarkfest against Michelle Mabelle Obama.

Jack is Back!

I give up when she starts wearing Belgian shoes. You know which ones I mean. My wife will absolutely go purple.

I wonder which lucky farrier is going to add "By Appointment to the White House" to his advertising.

A comment from Tapper:

Interesting how some people in the political spotlight are called inconsiderate or thoughtless for their decisions to wear expensive clothes or get pricey haircuts while others who do the same are called trendy and fashionable. In my opinion, if one has the resources to support a more elaborate lifestyle, they should be able to spend their money as they like. However, I have problems with double-standards. The new administration has been highly critical of company executives flying corporate jets and holding conferences in lavish resorts while the country is suffering. Yet, it is okay to wear $500 sneakers at a food bank.

OUCH!! Did bkm nail it or WHAT???

President O is spending money we don't have like water. All the while telling the public; many of which that have lost, or are at risk of losing, homes, jobs, retirement, health care, businesses, to tone it down and spread the wealth, share the pie, don't expect so much so soon. So it shouldn't be a surprise that we feel like it's a slap in the face when the O's make such blatent "I don't give a darn" attitude photo ops and statements as they do, repeatedly.

Frau Jedöns

Seriously, I am unaware of what duties SOS Condaleezza Rice failed to perform during Katrina. Was she supposed to drive one of the school buses that mayor Nagin *conveniently* forgot to use for the evacuation of *his* city? She was Sec. of State, not mayor of NO, not governor of LA and not head of FEMA; however, I am confidant she could have managed the crisis successfully while buying shoes.

BTW, J.Crew has tennis shoes for $65.00.

A black womans greed for $450.00 shoes runs a world in need.
Fact is liberals are way way way way way too stupid and deluded to object to phonies.
Why? Because they are phonies too.

Chris Jamison

I seem to recall a certain amount of indignation on the left when Sarah Palin got a wardrobe for the election circuit. Isn't that a classic example of hypocrisy?

lurking

Heh, viewer is obviously way to dull to notice that the difference is that Condi looks good in expensive shoes.

lurking

And apparently way too dull to notice how off message he is. Katrina was COMPLETELY Bush's fault. How can it be Condi's fault when she was off shopping for shoes?

Captain Hate

viewer's just making sure we concentrate on Lieutenant Worf's expensive footwear instead of her bowed legs, gigantic caboose, mismatched eyes and ginormous forehead.

verner

Yeah, I did the math. Michelle is wearing 36 pieces of pie on her feet.

Captain Hate

btw, TM is a Celtic fan, no? Will Boston be the first team to ever get out of the first round with Marbury on the team?

verner

In other words, she could outfit three midnight basketball teams with Starbury sneakers with what's on her precious feet.

You want to redistribute wealth? Start there baby.

daddy

Sarah Palin was falsely acused of wearing a $300 plus scarf by the Huffington Post, (a meme gladly picked up and echoed by the MSM) when in fact it was a $12 knock off scarf birthday gift from her sister. Obama's half brother in Kenya, who I believe earns less than $20 a month, would be able to buy a pair of these shoes in 4 years 6 months, as long as he didn't eat, drink, pay rent, or buy anything else.

Therefore, Palin is a spendthrift hillbilly, unworthy of serious national office, and Michelle is America's new fashion ingenue, and naturally in the list of America's 100 most influential people in the catagory of (I think) Courageous. So what else is new?

matt

I'm surprised Michelle wasn't wearing her diamonds and/or pearls. It's what all the "society" women did back in the day, healping the little people.

Old Lurker

OT Folks, but I figure most of you will be checking in with the top topic so I can get your attention.

I have been out all day and just had time to scan the posts. I did see DoT linked to the Chrysler secured bond villians' lawyers statement, but I think we should have a little more focus on the huge implications of the President doing what he is trying to do with Chrysler.

One poster commented "good luck to the next unionized company seeking secured bonds", but that's not the half of the problem Obama has created for the US economy and any hope it might have had for recovery.

There already are hundreds of billions (trillions perhaps) of high quality securitized corporate bonds out there, being components of thousands of portfolios, and they have always been an important component of most corporate capital structures...good for borrower and lender both.

Since we are a nation of laws and property rights, these bonds have always enjoyed the lowest possible non-government interest rates in the world precisely because one can estimate their value should the borrower fail.

Hugo Chavez took over the plantations, the banks, the oil fields, and the other major businesses in his country by isolating their owners, villifying them, then rallying public support for taking their stuff by claiming he was acting for the little people. Then he cancelled the private property rights and the laws that protected them and siezed their assets.

Obama in this one deal proposes EXACTLY that treatment of the securitized bond holders who loaned money to Chrysler, down to the last detail.

In so doing, he communicates to the global market that no secured bond is necessarily senior to the unsecured creditors at all, depending on the political winds of the moment, and the popular support he can rally.

This will have two impacts.

Overnight, every secured bond issue should be revalued as if it is unsecured, and that will significantly reduce their value since their face rates are so much lower than the already unsecured bonds.

Long term, I have no idea why any investor would lend money to a US company unless they earn the banana republic premiums on such borrowing that global capital markets exact today for lending in those risky markets.

Where is the outrage?

This. Is. Huge.

bad

OMG!! I just realized why the left thought Condi wasn't really black.

anduril's right. I am an idiot.

matt

OL;

The whole deal as proposed stinks.

Old Lurker, you spelled out so well what I've been trying to tell my mother. Unfortunately, she is totally into O's class envy.

Tomorrow, I'm going to just read your post to her and see if it helps.

pagar

Old Lurker, You're right, it is huge, and every American ought to be screaming that we are not going to let it happen here.

Sue

OL,

That is exactly how Chavez came to power and has stayed in power and Obama is working off the same playbook. Chavez was very popular with Venzuelans when he ran for office. Now, he stays because he owns the country.

Ignatz

OL,

Yeah we were just having this same discussion over on the 'Now You See it Now You Don't Thread'.

Kind of makes you wonder if Barry wants to be the lender of first, last and always resort doesn't it?
Parker Bros are going to need a gov loan to print all the Monopoly money this idiot is going to need.

Viewer

So tell me, what kind of tennies does Cindy McCain wear when she's volunteering at a food bank? Does she volunteer at food banks? Does she volunteer at anything not involving access to prescription drugs?

Rick Ballard

"every American ought to be screaming that we are not going to let it happen here."

Screaming won't be nearly as effective as refusing custom to any company willing to lick the fascist's boots. If you have a credit card from a Zombiebank - transfer the balance (if you have one) to a new card with a local bank and cut up the Zombiebank card. If you need a new car, then let Ford, Honda and Toyota have your custom rather than giving GM or Chrysler any hope of continuing.

Consumers in the US have a lot more choices than did Venezuela's consumers and making the right choice on consumption can break the wings right off of Zero's flying unicorn.

Sue

So tell me, what kind of tennies does Cindy McCain wear when she's volunteering at a food bank?

Why don't you tell us, since we really don't care what kind of shoes she wears, unless we like them and want to buy a pair for ourselves. You can also tell us when she said she wanted to take our piece of the pie and give it to you.

Roy Mustang

So tell me, what kind of tennies does Cindy McCain wear when she's volunteering at a food bank?

Shoes that look like they are worth $500. If you're going to spend the money, at least get your monies worth.

Of course, Michelle takes after her husband in this regard. $200M Vanity airports, anyone?

Jane

I'd like to count up what the Obama's have spent this week - of our money since neither one of them produces anything.


We had the NY fly-over for $327,000.
WE had the St. Louis HS event to practice his speech for the broadcast that evening for about $500,000. WE had the hour long broadcast costing TV stations millions. Next we have Flotus shoes for half a grand. My goodness these people are complete spendthrifts.

Douglas

McCain received numerous insults because of his shoes, which were cheaper than Michelles.

Palin Caught a lot of crap for what was in essence a clothing allowance so that she can be dressed in proper political uniform.

This isn't so much about the shoes, it's about the hypocrisy.

I don't think anyone begrudges a wealthy person (at least people who are center or right of center) spending as they please, however, there were months of coverage of these silly arguments made by people who were representing Michelle's husband.

As for the other part of the story, it looks like Steve and Barry's, is bankrupt, and caught up in a lawsuit with marbury.

RichatUF

Old Lurker-

Great points. We should see something this weekend, because I don't see how the secured bondholders could take the deal is as and the Government (in the form of TARP, the President's Auto Czar, and the Treasury) and the UAW are far to conflicted for the judge to not hear arguments from senior secured debtholders outside of TARP and start cleaving parts of the company off in this miracle 60-day bankruptcy (your links to that Sec 363 looked to be pretty straightforward arrangments {the only remaining assets being telecom switches and buildings}-certainly nothing of the scale of Chrysler).

Where is the outrage? Me, I'm pooped.

Captain Hate

Does she volunteer at anything not involving access to prescription drugs?

I don't know but I'd bet that she's never left a high-paying position that was subsequently regarded as best left vacant.

If MHO's shoes were any bigger, the Navy could paint them haze gray and commission a couple of new aircraft carriers.

Roy Mustang

In Michelle's defense, the job itself was more of a bribe than an actual job.

Mustang0302

A "no-show" or a "no-work" job, either way.

Roy Mustang

Roy,

Don't hate on Michelle's shoe size. She's a big and beautiful man.

Anyway, President Spending = Stimulus must approve of these $500 sneakers. After all, any spending, no matter how wasteful, is an economic stimulus to Obama. Kindergarten Keynesian at its finest.

Roy that's the type of defense I'd expect from Eric Holder if he ever ventured into providing legal representation for low-income street thugs.

Turns the lyric, "Hate to see her leave but I love to watch her go!" right on it's head.

Old Lurker

Cindy McCain is spending money that she earned herself and for which she paid taxes, or else she is spending money her father earned which was taxed several times. They earned it the old fashioned way by selling a product in a competitive field and succeeded over many years.

MO received "pay" for a makework job from an institution seeking influence from her community activist husband. Who in turn received "book profits" for writing about himself, before he was himself.

Like the Clintons, all of their wealth derives from influence seekers (called rent seeking in the traditional econ books) hoping to game the system.

Even if her husband were earning $400K as a senior associate in a DC law firm, I can guaran-dam-tee you she would not spend $540 on tennis shoes because they would not be able to afford that. Large as that amount of income is, two kids at Sidwell, taxes in DC, and the other costs of living that life here simply would not make that expenditure likely.

Captain Hate

Yeah beauty is subjective but I can't imagine anybody getting excited over the sausage link look.

Old Lurker

Rich "Where is the outrage? Me, I'm pooped."

Exactly what they are counting on, I fear. They are flooding the zone with so many threats that they know the opposition can only pick on a few.

I think we're screwed.

And it's time to follow Rick's advice and protect assets from the looters.

Charlie (Colorado)

Look, is anyone else getting tired of sniping at how Michelle looks? I mean, how many times can "she has a big ass" be amusing?

Breezy

Michelle and Barack Obama paid almost a million dollars in Federal and state income taxes. She can wear any type of shoes that she wants to. I don't even recall ever seeing Barbara Bush out of a suit, and her husband, along with the Republican party contributed to the financial ruining of the entire country while giving the richest people in the country a tax breake. Please!

Mustang0302

Charlie,

You're right. The weaponeering is all wrong. Sniping is for MOA-level precision. We should consider using ICBMs.

Viewer:"So tell me, what kind of tennies does Cindy McCain wear when she's volunteering at a food bank? Does she volunteer at food banks? Does she volunteer at anything not involving access to prescription drugs?"

The coverage Cindy got during the elections was truly a travesty, as evidenced by the fact that you don't know all she has done to help others in her life.
She is a nurse, and has spent much of her adult life traveling the world as a volunteer on medical missions for groups like Operation Smile. She also volunteers for anti-landmine organizations.

I don't care how much any person spends on her clothes as long as she can afford the. The problem with Michelle Obama and her sneakers is that they go against the carefully crafted "She wore J Crew to England!" image.
I'll be very happy when we can stop pretending Michelle Obama has extraordinary style.

Old Lurker:

Now that Major Garrett is on Obama's official shit list, he seems prepared to be pretty frank. He's is not kind about Obama's high handed interference at Chrysler, which is probably about as outraged as he can afford to get. Can't remember where I found the link, but I enjoyed this whole call-in video. He says he was warned not to expect a question at the President's presser, relates the questions he would have asked (good ones) and talks about how pissed off Obama is about the Chrysler creditors, thinks the media worm might start turning before too long. Good Times!

BTW, I claim Major Garrett.

Gee, I guess Shep Smith is still available... o boy...

Dorothy Jane

Why does she need $540 shoes? If she is what she claims to be and if THEY are what the media blathers they are, WHY DID SHE BUY A PAIR OF $540 shoes? You can't tell me a pair of $50 shoes wouldn't have looked as nice, in fact - I think the shoes are ugly and if we didn't know how much they cost, would anybody have looked at the shoes in the first place? Didn't she defeat the whole purpose of what she was there to do, lend aid to the less fortunate, by conspicuously wearing designer shoes? What is wrong with Keds, for goodness sake? Furthermore, why doesn't she donate the shoes to a shoeless person?

I may sound cranky. I am so tired of this double standard.

RichatUF

Old Lurker-

Maybe.

A liberal think tank economist puts together a very good paper that the spike in oil was the primary cause of the recession. The Obama Administration has 9 tax increase line items on oil and gas in his budget and for added measure he defunds the remaining work on the Arctic Survey (probably to make the Russians happy).

No one in their right mind would recommend that the collapsed Fannie and Freddie provide financing for already distressed homeowners, but the Obama Administration (in the middle of ongoing investigations at both concerns) is forcing them to lard up with more debt for already defaulted borrowers.

The Administration makes the private investors in Chrysler the bad guys, when it was those guys trying for years to turn that company around. And for their efforts, without court review, the Obama Administration wants to give them pennies on the dollar, but wants to make sure Chrysler's healthcare trust is fully funded (what the hell are the priorities-building quality cars isn't going to be one).

And the cheery on top has been the "torture" debate and the slimy, tacky, and cheap political stunts he's been pulling with the memos, burning CIA contractors in the national media, his weathervane support for US based "investigations", and with his equally slimy Attorney General, going over to Berlin to let the world know that they might "cooperate" after all with that piece of shit Spanish Inquisitor (don't tell these guys, its from 2005, it was shelved but appears to be back on).

Its only been 100 days-what the hell is left to get more outraged about?

It seems I'm not the only one who is near sighted, but I have better vision than the Daily Mail(UK)not Don Surber, but how could they leave out one of the most obvious
candidates, I made this point at the end of
a long thread, some days back. I think it was bad and extraneous who concurred with me on the point. But they put Tina Fey on the list, no oversight there.

Besides that, why do they wish to rub it in, wearing pricy sneakers to a charity event, all the while demonizing all those
who have the audacity to try to recover their investment, attacking our troops, our intelligence officers, hijacking our auto companies and our banks. They feel their position is really so strong, as that ex Weatherman Mark Rudd put it or do they see it as fleeting as the Northern Wind. I believe it's the latter they are trying to frontload the process as much as possible, to make reversal a hard fought thing.

I'd put Eric Cantor on my personal VIP list, but don't know if he's got a lot of fans here.
Maybe provisional status for Major Garrett?

John King may not rise to nomination level yet, but he's been about the only person on CNN worth listening to these days (not to mention during the election). I caught a rerun of his newish Sunday morning show awhile ago, and he was so superior to everybody else on that circuit that he's probably been cancelled by now. Has anybody else seen his show (State of the Union, I think)?

I just didn't want to make you feel bad by putting Hoekstra on the list myself, MayBee.

JM Hanes

Just to spread the midnight madness around a little: here's an article you probably don't need to read:

Will Obama Move The Court Leftward?

Ya think? What's almost as amusing is that when you get to The New Republic from RCP, you find a different title -- After Souter: Will Obama Move the Court? -- which seems even sillier than the first one. I gave it a shot, but half way through paragraph three, all hope of any actual insight evaporated:

What next then? The president must pick a nominee under overhanging threats and bombast from both the left (which fears disappointment) and the right (which has no genuine influence on the process, but recognizes the great importance of the Court).

So first we learn about the president. It seems obvious to me that he is focused on qualifications. By contrast, we have very little to go on in terms of the weight the president places on ideology in judicial nominations, which is a big deal.

It is really hard to believe that the author here could be the guiding light of SCOTUSblog!

G'night, G'luck

Jane

First of all, if Harrison doesn't think we are paying for the FLOTUS shoes he's nuts. And since her husband is trying to take away all of our discretion, I see no problem taking away hers. If we have to fund those spenders, I think we should dictate what they spend it on, and $540 shoes are not on the list.

Secondly, I agree with our list and note that it is ridiculously short on women. Harumph!

centralcal

"Secondly, I agree with our list and note that it is ridiculously short on women. Harumph!"

Totally agree. I will add Liz Cheney who did such a splendid job slapping Norah O'Donnell down.
