Sununu is complaining about Michelle Obama's dress
3:47 PM EDT, WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 5, 2012
Former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu questioned reports that the Tracey Reese dress Michelle Obama wore for her convention address Tuesday night cost $350 on a conference call with reporters Wednesday. Sununu accused the Obama campaign of peddling several lies, including the cost of the dress: "somehow I don't think that's the truth either."
The Obama campaign hasn't released the cost of the dress, but many media outlets have reported that dresses by Tracy Reese generally start around $350.
She's the effing first lady and she rocked that dress. What an idiot to go after that.
I thought it was well-played to wear colors that were sort of red, and sort of blue, neither strongly/purely so, but a nice tapestry with a mix of both. A good visual metaphor for the country.
Has anyone here seen Michelle in person. How is her figure in real life. She carries it very well but looks to be a rather large woman
Keep it up Sununu. Whatever makes the whole bunch of you look like asses is fine with me.
How much did Michelle's hair and make-up cost? It's outrageous! Get to the bottom of this, Sununu.
A truly stupid comment by Sununu. The woman was absolutely FLAWLESS in every fucking way.
John, that shoulder cut just wouldn't suit you. Perhaps Tracey could redesign it with sleeves for you, or perhaps add a draping of some sort.
That dress is gorgeous and I want it!!!! I hope it goes out to the mass market. Hell, I'll buy two.
getting too old for this shit
John Sununu is a hateful, bitter old crank.
Everyone else I've met in my life who is from New Hampshire has been of sterling character -- and then there's Sununu.
He has an unusual background, this from Wikipedia:
Sununu was born in Havana, Cuba, the son of Victoria (née Dada) and John Saleh Sununu, an international film distributor of Palestinian descent who belonged to the Greek Orthodox Church of Jerusalem. His father grew up in the Ottoman Empire's Mutasarrifate of Jerusalem in Palestine and his mother was born in San Salvador, El Salvador, as part of the mass exodus of Ottoman subjects seeking a better life abroad. He is a Maronite Catholic.
It seems MO has been wearing TR for quite some time now, according to the website. (Search Obama)
So Sununu (and isn't THAT a ridiculous-sounding name) is a fucking foreigner? He has some nerve criticizing anyone; surprised his fellow Repugs haven't dropped him.
He's as cranky as that other overweight slob,Chris Christie,r19!
Sununu, pick your battles. Is a dress really worth it?
R23 that's all he's got. lol
Obama Derangement Syndrome
Sununu is a media whore who will say anything to get some tv air time.
And he's deranged.
I don't think it's just about wanting to hog the limelight.
He's been very angry all Summer, and there have been other threads about his outbursts on other issues.
He calls Democrats "vermin" and is furious that Jeanne Shaheen beat his son for the Senate in 2008.
It may also be that as an older Republican male, he dislikes the fact that the old order is slipping away.
Ah, Sununu, that dress comment was Sonono.
You've really got to do better than that. You're looking even more desperate now.
This is completely bizarre- a republican operative is arguing about a dress. He has nothing substantive to say. At all.
