The White House issued denials about a Michelle Obama lingerie shopping story where she spent $50000 at a upscale boutique, Agent Provocateur. One story was how the Secret Service closed off access to the Madison Avenue store was rebuked by spokeswoman Kristina Schake. But rumors persist that the First Lady, along with Sheikha Mozah, the Queen of Qatar, did indeed go on a wild shopping spree. That Michelle Obama spent $50,000 dollars on lingerie. That Mrs. Obama boost sales at Agent Provocateur herself by 12%. This follows how Michelle Obama′s SUTO dress cost $2400. Some will say that as America is still suffering in the midst of an economic depression that the Obama free-spending ways are a travesty. This just after they spent millions of taxpayer dollars to vacation in Hawaii.
The new style of Elitism that the Obamas brought to the White House in 2009 has been rather course and abrasive. The in-your-face extravagance of weekly dinner parties for the press. Lavish and expensive vacations. The millions wasted on photo-ops, ranging from a fly-by of the Statue of Liberty to flying the ′First Dog′ back and forth from Hawaii. And then the expedition to India and the Far East where the Obamas dragged along hundreds of friends and campaign contributors, all on the taxpayers dime, costing the American people almost $200 million dollars for the whole affair.
Yes, we understand that Michelle Obama wants to eat Kobe steak and arugula everyday and wear clothes that cost thousands of dollars. Just as we know that her husband, Barack Obama, prefers to goof off playing golf or giving campaign speeches and fundraising instead of doing his job. We would all like to do things other than that which we can afford. So when will this madness stop?
Probably no time in the near future. Meanwhile, the White House does deny that Michelle Obama spent $50,000 on lingerie at Agent Provocateur. That the Secret Service closed down Madison Avenue so Obama could boost sales at the boutique with her new gal-pal, Sheikha Mozah, the Queen of Qatar. Spokeswoman Kristina Schake says that the stories are false. But we do know that the First Lady has very expensive tastes as she displayed when Michelle Obama wore at the SOTU speech a dress that cost $2400. So if she and the Queen of Qatar blew $50,000 on lingerie, who can really argue that it did not happen?
