Michelle Obama Carries $1,000 Handbag: Insensitive?

Is this a classic case of "Let them eat cake"?

Michelle Obama was spotted this week carrying a handbag that retails for almost $1,000, White House Dossier reports.

The purse is a large two-tone tote in teal by Reed Krakoff, which was for sale on Krakoff’s website for $990, until it was sold out.



On one hand, we think it's kind of insensitive of the first lady to carry such an expensive bag while the economy is still recovering from the recession.

On the other, we feel Obama is damned when she does and damned when she doesn't: She was also criticized recently for wearing a $35 dress from cheap-o chain H and M on the "Today" show.

Should the first lady find some kind of middle ground between cheap and outrageous? Or should she wear whatever the heck she wants?

    And to think I actually cringe when I am looking at a Replacement Purse in the $30-40 dollar range .. (just pointing out the obvious here .. who can afford that kind of $$$$ for a purse anyways?)

    Girl's at my school carry expensive purses like that too.
    And too all those Republicans out there bashing Michelle for this :
    Remember that Palin happened to spend $150,000 on clothes... JUST SAYIN'.

    No, the Palin's did not spend that money on their clothes. The GOP did because when Palin was nominated, they didn't have nice enough clothes to be on TV with.
    After the campaign, those clothes were donated to charity.
    Get your facts straight or you just look silly.

    Regardless. She wore those clothes. Those VERY expensive clothes. Obama could give that purse to charity for all we know. So we don't know all the facts, Rightside.

    No, they weren't very expensive clothes. They (GOP) bought enough clothes for the family to wear during the campaign for the whole family. That's a lot of clothes. Probably, middle class clothes, nothing like m bama.
  • Zach rightside 2011/05/11 21:23:13

    Sorry but my family is middle class and we don't spend $150,000 on clothes. So yes, that is expensive.

    Ummm, lest we forget this woman is a Harvard graduate. I think she can afford the bag, besides most people can't distinguish a 10 dollar bag from a 1000 dollar one unless they are told.

    Not really, some people in this economy are doing ok financially, should they force themselves to look like they are poor when they are not?

    Also just for a heads up... even though ive never owned a purse that cost more then 30 bucks even i know thats still not a very expensive purse in the realms of the rich. Purses can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. A thousand dollar one is pretty cheap for the mega rich.

    It's obviously what she's doing.this woman loves to flaunt and rub the people's nose in it....amazing this country she hated so much, now allows her to don a 1000.00 purse while so many people are out of work.....just goes to show you how removed she and Obama are from the people.....he's had 61 golf outings since he became president......it appears golf is more important than Japan and Libya are right now.....making political speeches and appearances is all he has accomplished.....America is awaiting his leadership....it ain't gonna happen.....he's no leader and never will be......Hell he's still campaigning.....letting others do the governing......

    They want other peoples incomes to pay for the moocher class. Why didn't they pay full fare in 2010 instead to 26% ?
    The posers only found it in their hearts to share their largess with others when he decided to run for office.

    You can bet Moochelle's over-sized behind I am bent out of shape !
