    She didn't earn it, someone else must have. I hear she is opening a new clothing line, the Marie Antoinette series.

    Michelle Obama sparks fury after splashing out on $6,800 designer jacket for Buckingham Palace reception

    Political commentators have expressed their fury over the fact that Michelle Obama wore a jacket worth $6,800 to the pre-Olympics Opening Ceremony reception at Buckingham Palace on Friday.

    Though the dazzling J Mendel jacket and skirt won critical acclaim from the style set, some pundits are furious that she elected to spend so much money on a garment while so many in the U.S. are suffering financially.

    The hypocrisy is ripe, ain't it?

    God forbid the black woman spend like a rich, white politician's wife.

    Is that where the money for Mrs. Romney's horse came from? Bundlers?

    It's getting riper and riper in here.

    I'm beginning to be afraid that that is what this has been about from the beginning.

    Yeah, the hypocrisy is ripe. The left bitches and moans about Ann Romney, but is oddly silent when Michelle Obama ups the alleged offense.

    Personally, i dont care how much they wasted on their clothing. As long as it was their own money and not mine.

    Yeah. Sure. It has nothing to do with the absolute hypocrisy of the left, particularly the media. This is solely about the race of the person wasting money on clothing.

    Moochelle the linebacker should get a little slack. Affirmative action in play. I think 5900 dollars of affirmative action is reasonable, in this case. Anne romney's white privilege means she should be criticized for her purchase that was relatively modest in comparison.

    Only racists would go after Michelle.
