Michelle Obama Went Sleeveless


This is evidence of her daring-do, her confidence, her commitment to working out, her every-woman approach, and no other interesting Michelle Obama storyline to come out of Barack Obama‘s Congressional address. [NYT]

      Mrs. O is smart, classy, beautiful, and elegant, and if I were ever to get the chance to vote for her, I would in a hot minute.

      Isn’t it “derring-do”?

      I am sorry but I am just loving the fresh energy, style, and charisma that Michele Obama brings to the Whitehouse. I couldn’t help but smile back at her smile when she walked onto the “scene” last night.

      She looks gorgeous, but I somehow feel she was a smidge underdressed. Am I the only one who feels this way (and I am by no means conservative whatsoever)?

      The First Lady is a very elegant and classy woman. She is confident & very self assured, she is as comfortable(it seems)in front of 1mil plus people as she is at a PTA meeting. The Obama’s have brought a new elegance to the White House which has not been seen since the days of Jacqueline Kennedy. It is such a refeshing change to see not only a President but the First Lady as well so able to bring such style & elegance to the most prestigous address in the country.

      Look at her beautiful brown skin. It’s flawless.

      I’d go straight for the night with her. LOL, kidding, but I love her and her style.

      @Julian – your probably just confused after looking at LauraB’s wonderful attire for the last 8 years. Before that Hilz and before than BBush. Shriek

      On a side note, I think Hilz has been making an effort lately especially since her Asia trip. Does anyone know what color she was wearing last night though? I’m not sure what that was called. Pork Project Pink? PPP

      I’m a big Obama supporter BUT her wardrobe was completely inappropriate for the occasion. It is a joint session of Congress for crying out loud!

      Every man was in a suit and tie and every other woman was in a pantsuit. Michelle should have worn sleeves even if it was a sweater or jacket over the dress.

      Speaking of First Lady Michelle Obama:

      Michelle Obama is a racial-minority individual, and in her heart and mind she inevitably does not endorse hate crimes committed by George W. Bush.

      George W. Bush committed hate crimes of epic proportions and with the stench of terrorism (indicated in my blog).

      George W. Bush did in fact commit innumerable hate crimes.

      And I do solemnly swear by Almighty God that George W. Bush committed other hate crimes of epic proportions and with the stench of terrorism which I am not at liberty to mention.

      Many people know what Bush did.

      And many people will know what Bush did—even to the end of the world.

      Bush was absolute evil.

      Bush is now like a fugitive from justice.

      Bush is a psychological prisoner.

      Bush has a lot to worry about.

      Bush can technically be prosecuted for hate crimes at any time.

      In any case, Bush will go down in history in infamy.

      I am not sure where I had read it before, but anyway, it is a linguistically excellent statement, and it goes kind of like this: “If only it were possible to ban invention that bottled up memories so they never got stale and faded.” Oh wait—off the top of my head—I think the quotation came from my Lower Merion High School yearbook.
