    Now please does anybody actually believe that politicians mean what they say? They are expensive ornaments (no not her accessories - Politicians!)


    No one besides Oscar de la Renta gives a shit that Michelle Obama's dress was European in origin. When did the First Lady's choice of designer become such a concern that a prominent fashion designer felt as though he had to speak out? And why try to turn it into a political issue when it doesn't even matter in the first place? Oscar de la Renta is just pissed that she didn't wear something designed by him. The fact that her dress is European is irrelevant when it comes to why they were at the State Dinner. She wore a beautiful dress and chose the color out of respect for the Chinese President. De la Renta needs to quit pouting and get over it.


    If this is the biggest concern anyone has about the Obama's, we're in deeper s*it than we thought. Besides, President Hu probably acknowleged the color (the dress) and nothing else.
