Don Surber, via Larwyn, has the details:
Barack Obama to buy rare £20,000 rhodium ring for his wife to say ‘thanks for your support’
I agree 100% with Don:
Question: What do you think of a £20,000 ring for Michelle Obama?
Answer: How sweet of Barack Obama.
Question: But what about the economy?
Answer: It will help a little but not a whole lot.
Question: But isn’t that obscene?
Answer: No. What is obscene is people who want to take away the right of people to spend the money they make the way they want to spend it. I trust as president he will be more generous in his charitable donations. But buying her a nice ring is a nice thing a husband does for his wife. I ain’t spending the next 4 years hating the man.
A few years ago I bought The Husband a Rolex for his birthday in appreciation for his support.
It’s a free country, and everybody has a right to spend their hard-earned money every best way they see fit. Let’s keep it this way.
