Now tell the truth - did you get this from my last comment the other day?

Pretty superficial, but what do you expect from the plutocrats. I'm sure if the press were to make a big deal over this, she would stomp her feet and cry, "Why are you ruining this for me?". Because, as I've mentioned before, it IS all about them - the pharaohs live above us all and the screams of the impoverished shall never reach their delicate ears while in their Ivory Towers. Remember Babs and her "Why should I sully my beautiful mind" crap.

In Laura's defense, however, it was allegedly ordered years ago and I expect she believed that - due to endless wars of aggression and imperialism combined with the Patriot Act - she would have several more terms in which to use it.

Rest easy knowing she will have many sleepless nights worrying about those damned uppity black people who are using her pasty white china.

Besides, it's a bit gaudy, perhaps the Obamas will bring their own.

It is god awful is what it is..lol
I could not believe it when I saw how much it cost and that we actually bought something like that. But I guess it is some kind of tradition. I think that is a tradition that needs to be broken.
Or at least something simpler, something at least pretty...lol Even my Corelle is prettier than that nasty stuff...lol

Even Melmac with more scratches than my 95 Chevy is more attractive.

Fran said...

Ewwwwwwwwwwww!
Figures she would pick ugly dinnerware.
The Bush family all seem to have that stupefied glazed look in their eyes-- what is with that? (in the linked article).

Lauras choice has the most pieces for all that entertaining Obama will have time to do while cleaning p the effing monumental messes her husband left behind.

I'd be tempted to whip that chine at them as they leave. OK that is a bit aggressive, but frankly, fuck them & their uppity china.

It's bad manners to have blood on your hands when doing formal dining with tacky eagle design china.
Laura Bush- stick the china where the sun don't shin-a

I'm not having happy thoughts about the bush era.
I posted my scathing farewell thoughts on my blog today.

Mauigirl said...

Unbelievable. I don't care if it was "in the works" for several years - you'd think they'd have cancelled the order under the circumstances!

The Obamas will probably never use them, for sure.

Lisa said...

Is that typical? I wonder if they had any second thoughts about the purchase considering what's going on with the economy.

D.K. Raed said...

I thought new presidential china is usually purchased way earlier on. I recall Jackie Kennedy and then Nancy Reagan buying all new china. It's done earlier so that the new prez is using it for state dinners all through his term. This just smacks of the Bushes trying to leave an imprint that the Obamas will have to live with. Think of it this way, it denies Michelle the chance to pick her own china. That's what I think Laura was all about.

Annette said...

According to the article they broke the china the Clinton's got so they had to order new... what do you bet she broke it throwing it at shrub after she ran out of shoes...lol

enigma4ever said...

Hey all....so I did see the part about how it got Broken ( cough-yeah- right!!!) I would bet anything that it got broken from living with a ripping drunk....

I don't think Michelle will ever use...she has MUCH better taste than that crappy golden eagle crapola...

I think they usually order for state dinners etc...* the funny thing is that Bush had only like 4 state state dinners their first term ( cuz he was so paranoid after 911)

Thanks for all your comments - I was thinking later maybe I was just being petty but it pissed me off all day....grrrrrr.

( you all made me laugh at ....nice to know I was not the only one that thought it was tacky....)

enigma4ever said...

( I posted this late thursday night- but moved it to Sunday When DK found out that Michelle has selected the LIncoln China - yeah....)

Hey E, the Obamas only chose Lincoln china to use for the big inaugural dinner, but that's a good start! So much better than the crappy-ass memories eating on a bush-designed plate, probably paid for with TARP money, would engender.

But really, most of the presidential china is awfully gaudy. Maybe it's just my non-pretentious taste, but I prefer plain bone white. I like to see my food. The Franklin Pierce set looked the nicest to me.

Annette said...

I agree...something plain and simple... like I said my corelle is white with 2 black lines around the outside rim... that's it. and then my "fancy" dishes have lighthouses on them...one right in the middle and a ring around the outside...other than that white... guess I am not very high faluting like the Bushes...lol

D.K. Raed said...

hey Annette, a lighthouse is different; it in no way resembles food & could therefore be pleasant to see while eating. I don't like all the flowery wierdo stuff on my plate competing with food. One of the old presidential plates had a rim design that looked like big brazilian cockroaches running amok. and then there's that masonic eye thingie looking back at you on some early prez plate. ewwww! If I was into psychotropic drugs, the Zachary Taylor could occupy me for hours.

But hah, high falutin' laura went for that magnolia thing on the "informal set"! It looks vaguely pornographic to me. I'm sure Michelle won't let the family use it.

Fran said...

Either that or she WILL let them use it--- these plates are ok to break kids.....
Perhaps the Obama's will bring us into the 21st century....
Go with a solid color or maybe Hawaiian???

golden eagle motif-- Bah!

Fran said...

By the way I'm not that talented to design plates.... but posted some random suggestions @ Ramblings.

I bet you can come up with some good ones.

Distributorcap said...

maybe they will steal it when they leave -- i am sure the obamas would love to get rid of anything bush
