US first lady falls in love with Prague ('Bow' wow?)
China Daily ^ | 4/05/09 | (Agencies)

Posted on 04/05/2009 7:23:37 AM PDT by maggief

PRAGUE -- Michelle Obama's whirlwind tour of Prague turned into a love affair with a city and its people. "I'll be back," she said.

Crowds of young Czechs and tourists chanting "Obama! Obama!" waved at the first lady as she walked the cobblestones of the Jewish Quarter. She waved right back, and there were no angry faces as far as the eye could see.

"She was totally with them," said Michaela Sidenberg, her guide.

It's a variation on the spider dress! LOL

Seriously, I love some of her outfits, but when she goes wrong, she REALLY goes wrong!

That wouldn’t be a bad outfit, for a change, if not for the idiotic belt. Does she look in the mirror before she goes out and say, “Hmmm, what can I do to mess this up, now?”

And don’t the Czechs know the Obamas are Communists? What are they so excited about?

A good friend of ours and her husband are Czech immigrants (now US citizens) who lived under communism. They despise the Kenyan more than anyone I know, which is saying a lot. They tell every one they can that they see the same signs from this administration that they saw back in Prague!

This is good news! Looks like Michelle has decided she’d rather be Jacki-O than Bernadine Dohrn!

"...young people in Spain are so stupid they deserve what they get."

Anyone who invites the Muslim Reconquista and looks forward to Boabdil's revenge is prima facie stupid--and will definitely get what he deserves.

Words fail me. Isn’t that the sweater she wore with the white tank top and 50’s circle skirt when she met the Queen? Looks like she added a bicycle tire shined up with Armor All to spruce it up.

Sure enough. I’m sure if I owned an accessory that ugly, I’d wear it all the time (/s). Maybe someone told her it draws the eye away from her backside.

Obama is black. For Europeons and the MSM, nothing else matters.

Where in the HELL does she find these get-ups? I keep reading the headlines in the lame stream media that she’s supposed to be some kind of a fashion plate. She’s compared to Jackie Kennedy all the time. I’ve seen Jackie Kennedy. Lady, you’re no Jackie Kennedy. Or a much of a lady for that matter. She’s an embarrasment. And it’s an insult to Jackie Kennedy. I can’t stand the Kennedys but I have to admit Jackie was one classy First Lady. It was bred into her. And I respect what she did for preserving American culture and the American arts and architecture. At least she was patriotic.

Oh, gosh, you're right! I thought the black part was (rather unusual, but not bad) single piece with the white blouse, but it's that same dumb sweater that would be too small for my 5th-grader.

Yep. It will be worse this time, too, since Moslems have regressed since the 11th Century.

Doesn’t EVERYONE wear their belt at their nipple?

Although, as a man, I find it hard to find a pair of jeans with the waist around my rib cage...

Actually, it looks like she is using a belt because buttons aren’t strong enough to hold her bulk in. It reminds me of a horse’s cinch. And that is NOT a flattering idea...although I’ve got a couple of Arabian mares who probably weigh less than Michelle.

The sweater a size larger and the pencil skirt are actually good basic pieces. It’s a shame she has NO clue what pieces work well together and that blouse is wrong no matter what else you wear with it. This woman used to have an executive position. Seems she’d know what is appropriate by now.

The thing is, Laura Bush was much more classy, much more elegant than Mrs. Obama. Didn’t hear too much about that in the MSM. I’m not in a hurry to dump on Michelle, but I wish the Main Streamers would just stop cramming her down our throats. She’s nowhere near as stylish as they are making her out to be. The empress has no clothes, so to speak.

It just struck me when I look at these pics of her wearing belts, it reminds me of some old guys who wear their belts & pants too high, instead of at the waistline.

A belt under her boobs ON TOP of the too tight sweater she wore the other day??? Then, if that isn't enough, a big clown bow.

At least she finally found a pencil skirt that fits her and doesn't make her hips look 3 sizes bigger than they really are. Too bad she refuses to wear a small heel instead of those ballet slipper flats. Does nothing to enhance the skirt.
