That's not fair, subby. Ann has to do that to her clothes, lest she spread the tard AIDS that her magic horsey couldn't fix.

My SO knew a girl whose job was to discreetly go at the house of weatlhy socialistes, to buy back the very expensive dresses that they only wore once. Apparently, it was a very-well known little secret, but everybody acted like they bought those supremely expensive dresses, wore them once, and then put them in a closet, never to be touched again.

For a fringe of the population, appearance and hypocrisy really is a way of life. I think I'd go mad living in the vicinity.

This was probably done quite intentionally just to get people talking again about what a disconnected-from-normal-people's-reality twunt Mrs. Romney is.

I agree, and the earrings with the first outfit were nicer too. Though nice is a relative term, and the second outfit was perfectly good. It kind of amazes me that people pay so much attention to what she's wearing. I rather suspect the president reuses suits more than once or twice.

I don't like asymmetric gowns and I think black gowns are ugly for being drab . That said, she wears it pretty well, an exception. The fact she wears it more than once is awesome.

I used to work for an upscale retail chain in the DC area. One HUGE problem they had was the practice of wealthy trophy wives coming in, purchasing a $1500 evening gown from the designer section, wearing it to a formal event, and then returning it the next day. Bonus - Often, the gowns had blood and/or semen stains on them.

Things got so bad that they implemented a special policy against returns. My job was to audit compliance. So my wife (girlfriend at the time) would go in with my audit credit card, purchase a fancy gown in one store, then drive to another the next day and try to return it. A fun little bit of fantasy.

//No, her's did not have blood and semen stains on them.

Given that woman's hideous taste in shirts, she has no room to insult anyone else's fashion choices.

I hear you... I'm unable to see why Michelle elicits such hatred from some folks in this country.

Wow... She's smart, articulate and wants our children to eat better and be more active. How outrageous. *rolls eyes*

And on a superficial level, she far more attractive than Romney's Stepford Wife, in my opinion.

Because at some point a liberal probably said something about Laura Bush, ergo, right wingers are required to say 20000 times worse things about Michelle Obama.

It's easy to see why conservative parents didn't like her. Think about it. They've been brought up on a steady diet of talk radio and TV pundits telling them all the problems in their life are somebody else's fault.

Kids are fat? It couldn't be the parents fault for not encouraging eating right. It must be the fault of the internet or TV commercials for junk cereal and soda.

Kids turned out gay? Liberal Hollywood turned them that way with their anti-family values movies and music.

Kids can't get into college? There was only one spot left, and affirmative action made sure a black kid took it.

Your husband can't get a job? Illegal immigrants stole it.

They didn't have a problem with Nancy's drug education plans or Laura's child literacy plans because the schools were doing the bulk of the work. But Michelle's plan puts personal responsibility on conservative parents' doorsteps, and a lot of them hate that.

Party of personal responsibility, indeed.

Did I miss the part when Ann Romney criticized Michelle Obama in any way? I admit to not reading TFA; I just looked at the pretty pictures. But they have always been extremely cordial with each other and very nice. It's one of the few bright spots on this campaign. They've never had a bad word between them...

Sadly, I would also say a fair bit of it has to do with the color of her skin. Pathetic in this day and age, I know, but it certainly seems to be the case.

As someone whose mother was a Librarian her entire life, I never had a problem with Laura Bush, even though I vehemently disagreed with her clod of a husband.

Yep, the "a dress can never be worn twice" crowd, given half a chance, will drive a Mom & Pop gown boutique right out of business.

That said, I think the headline was a cheap shot at Ann Romney. She isn't mentioned in the article. I get that the submitter was attempting humor, but it doesn't work in this case. Unfortunately, the headline was not funny and just comes off as unfair.

Also, I agree with other posters that Michelle looks fabulous. I really don't prefer one belt over the other. I think she looks great in both. Despite her beauty, I think it is nice that Michelles' intelligence is even more impressive than her fashion statements.
