The [righty] blogosphere is not happy that President-elect Obama bought his wife a gift that turns out not to even exist.  Granted, the invisible gift of non-existence would’ve cost more than most Americans spend on a car, but it’s none of our business how Obama chooses to stimulate the economy.

According to Politico workhorse Ben Smith, the story that about Obama buying his wife Michelle a $30K ring as a “thank you” gift, is just not true.

The communications for Obama’s transition, Dan Pfeiffer, flatly denied a Daily Mail report that Obama is buying an exotic $30,000 ring to thank his wife “for her support during the election.”  [no bling, bling]

We do offer President-elect Obama a little advice in case he does look to spend $30,000 in the next few months; advice that might just settle the stomachs of conservatives.
