If you like it, then you shoulda put earrings on it -- at least that's what Beyonce did with a brand new pair of Barack Obama hoops last weekend ... and now, TMZ has learned, sales for the pro-bama jewelry have EXPLODED.

The earrings were designed by a Puerto Rican jewelry designer named Erika Peña -- and up until last week, she had only sold 5 sets of the handmade earrings.

But her fortune changed overnight when Beyonce wore them last Saturday in NYC. Since then, Erika tells TMZ, she's sold over 1,300 PAIRS!

Erika tells us she received orders almost immediately from all over the world -- England, Switzerland, Chile, and Argentina ... with her biggest order coming from London.

The earrings currently sell for $32 a pair -- so if our math is correct ... that's like, a ton of money.

Obama is a disgrace to this country and the office he holds. He decided on September 11, 2012 that the lives of Ambassador Stevens and the men defending our Benghazi Libya embassy were not as important as his re-election. He left those men to die and then flew off to a fundraiser in Las Vegas. President Obama may get his wish and be re-elected but for his betrayal he will be impeached. Nothing he can say or do will ever erase the shame from his name and legacy.

I wonder if Beyonce knows what the unemployment rate is? I wonder if she knows the price of gas? I wonder if the uneducated Beyonce could find Benghazi on a map? It is time for these celebs to stop treating Obama as a God! He is an elected official and that's it. He did a poor job the last 4 years and has lied about the murder of 4 Americans in Benghazi. He may even be voted out of office next week, he doesn't deserve another 4 years

It looks like Beyonce took Oprah's place as Obama's #1 fan! Oprah has been very silent this time around. After supporting Obama four years ago, once he got elected Obama and his wife dumped Oprah, they no longer had any use for the big O.Oprah also would not join Reverend Wrights chuch, Obama and his wife sat in that church for 20 years and had no problem with Wrights racist comments

Another dumb out of touch celebrity who supports the President who would rather attend celeb fund raisers than do his job in the WH.

I didn’t think it possible, but by golly yes its true…your celebrity loving Obama articles are getting worse by the day! Congratulations!
But hey to be unbiased, if you see a HUGE light-up pair encircled with the words: “OBAMA –ITS TIME FOR YOU TO PACK IT UP AND GO BACK TO CHICAGO ….Signed the working 53%” be sure to let me know where to buy them!

Beyonce and Jay-Z's combined income hoovers at $1 billion dollars.. NOT $1 million, but BILLION... They're completely out of touch.. I wouldn't trust them to endorse a horse in a horse race, much less a Presidential race..

--

Jay Z's clothing company sold those Occupy All Streets - etc - shirts, then Jay-Z criticized the "movement"... He has flip flopped on things going back two decades almost..why stop now?

--

They're voting for Obama because he's black.. Otherwise, they likely wouldn't be publicly endorsing ANY candidate...

He's going to need more than celebrity endorsements to win,people buy the earrings to resell years later. If the celebrities care so much than maybe they should open their pocketbooks to the less fortunate in this country and volunteer where they are needed without all the media attention.

Romney made Obama look like a liar and a fool during the debates.. Especially the first debate.. Obama is a shifty fellow and he's been able to dodge any hard hitting questions / debates because his first opponent, John McCain, was equally shifty.. and Obama was able to out-talk McCain..

--

But Romney is WAY more educated than Obama.. He's a lot smarter.. He's a lot wittier and he's a lot "quicker" than Obama.. Even with the help of the liberal media / moderator Candy Crowley trying to clean up after Obama --- Romney still came out on top.. making Obama (and his supporters IE Candy Crowley) -- look even more shady..

--

Obama needs to come clean about Benghazi -- especially to the parents of the victims.. He needs to stop shuck and jiving..and dancing around.. We see right through it.

1300 pair sold? Wow....Sorry, not enough to win the election. This is as bad as lame stream media covering "Sandra Fluke press conference" when less than 10 people were there, but there not reporting the ENORMOUS size crowds Romney and Ryan are pulling at all their events. Again, 1300 pairs of earrings? If earrings could win the presidential election, we are in worse shape than it appears.

both parties, well most politicians in general, are working towards the same goal. corporations run this country now and they own us all. and i'm sorry but if you vote for someone because a celeb endorses them, you are a moron.
