    Well if she or The Big O paid for it I don't have a problem. Tho I doubt she takes it to the "little dry cleaner on the corner" to have it cleaned.

    I can see where this is a double-edged sword for politicians. We expect them to look polished when representing us. But we also want them to spend the same as us on clothes and haircuts. What if you walked into the House of Representatives and everyone looked like they do in the House of Pancakes? Not good.

    I am sorry but no Republican or Democrat should have clothes bought and paid for by the Ameircan public. I don't care if it's been that way since JFK or not. How many poor people in our lifetimes have been elected to president? They can afford their own clothes.

    Last time I checked, Michelle isn't an elected official. She is his wife just like the Joker, Hillary, Babs, Nancy, etc. We shouldn't foot the bill on crap like this. Yeah I know its a drop of water in the ocean compared to how much we spend elsewhere but I find it wrong.

    They are not royalty. They serve us, not the other way around.

    Sickens me that this one dress could have really helped a family here in this country. Just this one dress could have made somebody remove debt or feed their family for almost a year.

    If American taxes are paying for Michelle's designer clobber then that is wrong, wrong, wrong.

    Between the pair of them, I feel pretty sure they earn enough to afford to buy their own clothes. Justifying using the public purse to fund the purchase of designer outfits as a necessary expense in representing the country is just not good enough, I'm afraid. Does she plan on auctioning them off and donating the proceeds to the country once she and her hubby are out of the White House? I doubt it.

    The woman needs to learn about ebay - it's what the rest of us fashion-conscious birds do.
