According to The Washington Examiner’s "Campaign 2012" the White House Press Secretary Jay Carney is railing against the” irresponsible media” for running what he describes as a “badly sourced” article about Michelle Obama’s alleged lingerie shopping spree.
"It’s irresponsible for an American news organization to repeat this story even allowing that it could be true," Carney said during today's press briefing. "It's utterly false," he also said.
The Telegraph, a London newspaper, claimed that the First Lady spent $50,000 at a luxury lingerie shop, but didn't identify a source for the claim. The store CEO "refused to be drawn on the stores’ closely kept 'secret client list,'" The Telegraph said. "But he admitted the brand had attracted a high number of “unexpected famous names” – especially in the US, where sales have overtaken the UK."
Whether or not Michelle Obama is some sort of modern day Marie Antoinette, decked out in Agent Provocateur underwear, what is a work here is the utter hypocrisy of the left.
When Sarah Palin was provided with clothes by the GOP to prepare the basically small town girl for the big stage the media went absolutely berserk.
She was portrayed,stairized and viciously attacked as some sort of big spending trailer trash woman and the alleged money she was supposed to have splashed out with went to astronomical figures.
That she hadn’t asked for the clothes that were provided for her, and it is perfectly normal for someone in her position to be given clothes and other items-was she supposed to have bought all of them from her own money?
To have needed, perfectly legitimately, a large wardrobe for all the public events she was scheduled for was passed over in the left-wing media’s feeding frenzy.
Now that Palin is not perceived as a threat to the Dem’s and anyone can see that she is not a fashionista spendthrift the MSM has let the matter drop.
But let anyone imply that Michelle Obama goes on expensive holidays or spend up large on clothing and they are “irresponsible”. Saul Alinsky is alive and well in the attack attack, attack leftist game plan.
