Bitter Half Bedecked in Diamonds

No wonder Comrade Obama keeps denouncing “millionaires and billionaires” and calling upon them to be sacrificed to the public good. Nothing grates like ostentatious displays of wealth during hard times. For example:

That was no ordinary bling on the wrist of First Lady Michelle Obama at the DNC fundraiser in New York Tuesday night. Those fancy diamond cuffs were the creation of 23-year-old Katie Decker, whose namesake jewelry line has been making a serious splash since her graduation from Texas A&M two years ago. …

The First Lady wore Katie’s Lotus cuff priced at $15,000 with 2.9 carats of diamonds, her Gothic cuff at $15,350 with 2.17 carats in diamonds and the Quatrefoil bracelet at $11,800 with 1.73 carats in diamonds.

You can’t buy taste, but you can buy diamonds — if you’re the Queen. If you work for a living, the cost might be a problem.

A less than passionate smooch from the jewel-bedecked Queen, as B.O.’s teleprompter looks on jealously.

On a tip from Scott.

    No matter what these two do in public, it will never get worse than the face sucking exhibition Al Gore and Tipper subjected the American public to.

    Nothing says “Class Warrior for the Middle Class” like draping $42K worth of bling on your ho.

  6. Fiberal says:

    Nothing says “Well you gotta know by now that we’re not exactly descended from old money” like draping $42K worth of bling on your ho.

    Nothing says “I gets all ma class from yo money, bitch..” like draping $42K worth of bling on your ho.

    The picture is perfect: a presidential marriage we’re only allowed to see through the teleprompter.

  9. AC says:

    I wonder how many of those diamonds were dug out of the ground of Africa, by workers laboring under the shackles of social justice under an unfree, collectivist system.

    If we give him another 12 years he’ll create so many jobs that even American children will have the opportunity to dig up rocks for Her Imperial Majesty Michelle Antoinette.

    Questions:

    Before going to the WH, how many $15K diamond bracelets did the First Ho own?

    How many times did she stay in a $2500-per-night vacation suite?

    How many times did she have a private jet take her on vacation?

    How big was her “entourage” before the Marxist-in-Chief was elected?

    Before the WH, how much of her own money did she spend on designer clothes?

    How long has she hated White people, and why?

    From QUEEN MICHEELLEE comes LET THEM EAT PIGEON POOP

  12. Sorry, I thought I was still in the open thread

  13. Spartan24 says:

    I read in the original article that the bracelets were on loan- a common advertising tactic from designers to get their products noticed. I still think it was a disgusting and ostentatious display from someone who is constantly spouting “sacrifice”.

    Moonbattery demonstrates pathetic hackery once again. From Blount’s own link, here is a key paragraph he chose to conveniently “edit out”:

    The native Houstonian is over the moon with the fab pub that photos of the first lady in Katie Decker are already providing. Michelle Obama’s stylist picked up the bracelets at Katie’s showroom in Fragments in Soho. The bracelets were on loan for the evening; a common practice in the fashion industry. You can see more photos of the Obamas from the evening here by checking out the Gotham Hall event.

    Naturally, Moonbattery’s usual parrots chime in with their whining about nothing.

  16. laous says:

    Slurp! Chomp! Grrrrrrrrrrrrr!

  17. lao says:

    When it’s been conclusively demonstrated that Blount has played for for mindless fools, yet again, out come the sock puppets.

    Goodness knows, a rational response isn’t possible.

  18. lao says:

    er..played YOU for mindless fools.

  19. TED says:

    DIAMONDS will NOT make a silk purse!

    lao is a FAKE, Nobody can be THAT stupid!! 😎

    You could put diamonds on a pig but it’s still a pig.

    Lao-Z, –(‘face palm’)—….
    It’s the appearance, you tree stump.

    No one with a bit of a sense of the country’s dismal financial condition would be flaunting $42K worth of diamonds.

    Especially not after strutting around holding yourself out as a “Warrior for the Middle Class” or clucking about people putting salt on their food.

    Can you imagine the refined and modest Laura Bush doing that? (oops…Here’s where Lao-Z drops everything and does his famous Google Search).

    But you expect behavior like this from the First Ho, having watched the Affirmative Action Trollop living high on the hog for the last 3 years. Like I said, obviously, she’s not exactly descended from royalty.

    .

    I notice your snarks are becoming fewer and fewer. I take that as a sign that you have less and less to say as more and more of what we were warning about is happening or has happened.

    You are just not in position to defend your Messiah very much anymore, are you? He has fallen from Grace, has he not?

    I think you and your two moms might need another hobby these days.

  22. Marci says:

    No class as usual….the rest of the country must sacrifice while she lives in luxury AND flaunts it. As for that kiss…ewww, I did NOT need to see that before lunch.

  23. SR says:

    In 2009 Obama lectured America. Everyone must sacrifice for the greater good..Everyone must have some skin in the game. I guess he meant ‘everyone’ except for him and his wife.

  24. wingmann says:

    How did these two EVER have children?

  25. anono says:

    That she should wear such expensive jewelry (on loan or not) when the economy here is going down the Sh*t-hole is further proof of what a self-serving, insensitive elitist she and her husband are. In your face America

  26. lao says:

    President George W. Bush and first lady Laura Bush also were remembered by their Arab friends. The Saudi king gave the first lady an $85,000 sapphire and diamond jewelry set and a $10,000 piece of artwork made of gold, depicting a desert scene of Bedouins, camels and a tent.

    The first couple also received embroidered pillows with the names and pictures of the first dogs, Barney and Ms. Beazley. The pillows were given to Laura Bush by the wife of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

  27. Obama's Swinging Cod says:

    lao’s mouth is especially warm and pliant today.

  28. laous says:

    But Bushhhhhhh! Slurpppppppp!

  29. lao says:

    fibby apparently failed to notice this added bit of Blount mendacity.

    You can’t buy taste, but you can buy diamonds — if you’re the Queen. If you work for a living, the cost might be a problem.

    If you want to whine about “appearances” how about noticing the actual fact of deliberate lies?

    Gifts of more than $100 become property of the US Government.

    The gifts are less odious than what happened here. Not only is such excess out of touch in the current economic climate, but it is in incredibly poor taste for the first family to become an agent of advertising.

    So Lao
    When O said “at some point you have made enough money” is that point before or after earning the forty some thousand for that setup ?
    Or is my suspicion correct in that she was only modeling those rocks for the “special” people.
    You can’t have your class envy, and eat it too.

  33. lao says:

    Blount edited out of link he quoted: Michelle Obama’s stylist picked up the bracelets at Katie’s showroom in Fragments in Soho. The bracelets were on loan for the evening; a common practice in the fashion industry.

    Blount then complained: You can’t buy taste, but you can buy diamonds — if you’re the Queen. If you work for a living, the cost might be a problem.

    Feel free to discuss.

  34. Fiberal says:

    Lao-Z,

    What is it about “tree stump” that you didn’t understand?

    Stop with the straw man stuff – Moose is a Ho and her husband is an Affirmative Action race hustler.

    Accept it.

    Moose does not have the common sense, shame or decency to know not parade garish wealth along her bare, overly-long muscle-arms while telling the little people how to live and while her Kenyan husband wants to “redistribute” the wealth.

    .

    And you know why they don’t have the shame to see the hypocrisy? Because they’re trash. They’re trash trying to float a stunted perception of fairness. That’s why.

    And trash is just the best you liberals can do.

  35. Fiberal says:

    And after seeing that picture again, I still say: “someone get a damn hose!”

  36. Jack Schytt says:

    YUCK!! Reminds me of when Zira and Cornelius “kissed” in Planet of the Apes. Hilarious!!

  37. lao says:

    Did Blount post a selective quotation that edited out that the jewelry was borrowed?

    Yep.

    Did Blount then make a statement about Michelle buying that jewelry?

    Yep.

    That’s reality fibby.

    Accept it.

  38. Sexy Snake-Eyes says:

    Nice “Fake hetero Hollyweird kiss”…

    Notice how neither of them really want to touch ‘lips’?

    She’s kissing his chin and he’s kissing her right cheek.

    LOL!

    MAGIC!

  39. Spartan24 says:

    Lao- I guess you didnt see my comment. The point is she made a pretty ostentatious display after telling people to “eat their peas” and “shared sacrifice”

  40. lao says:

    No spartan, the point is she borrowed the jewels, a fact that Blount deliberately concealed so that he could then whine about her spending money on jewelry that others can’t afford.

    I think poor people can understand the concept of wearing borrowed jewels quite easily.

    Moonbattery is immensely fond of showing the picture of Michelle coming off the plane in her very casual shorts and then whining about how disgracefully low class that display is.

    Do try to be consistent, not to mention honest.

  41. Fiberal says:

    Like I said Lao-Z, I notice your snarks are becoming fewer and fewer.

  42. Momster says:

    I couldn’t help but notice, once more, the apparent brain surgery scar on Mr. Obama’s head! I had thought that perhaps the photos I had earlier seen had been doctored–but there it is again! hmmmmm.

    I also LOVE the kiss taking place in the shadow of the teleprompter. Did it say “smooch wife–your wife?”
