So now the buying habbits of the administration is being critisized? come on, lets have some legitimate critisizms and not this childish stuff.
It's not about the buying habits of the administration; it's about the callous, unconcern for the citizens of this country that were in peril.
Is this a legitimate critisizm? I'm one republican that thinks so!!

Please do not think I intentionally misread your point. It is a little hard to see it. Try unmasking next time. Armed in sarcasm just makes this into an insult fest and I don't really want to have to pull the thesaurus out again. Besides it would be much better if we actually discussed whether or not it was right for her to go shopping for shoes at a time of national crisis. Not whether you think I’m ----- insert word here.

Drudge broke this first, so it's hardly a politically motivated hack job.
It's simply shocking. Not that she went shopping, or took in plays or played tennis or made an appearance at an internet convention, but that she (or anyone on ATS frankly) would be shocked people are shocked by Imelda Marcos here being covered on the very Internet she was in NYC to showboat for.
She's not buying soup here people. $7 grand boots is a poorly planned photo op. Don't be obtuse. She's supposed to be strategic minded and represent this country to the world, but can't figure out how to represent herself to us? This isn't right. It's poor judgement.
And the defense of her by some like she's just regular people here doing her daily chores is freaking nuts. I was certainly both ashamed by and sympathetic to Bill Clinton's animal urges and poor judgement, but he didn't do it on camera on purpose!. :shk: Wow guys, come on.

I'm not getting the fuss here. She had some down time, everyone is entitled to that. Besides, I bet she had her cell with her if she was needed.
