I am glad they’re getting to see some historic things first hand.

Glad you approve because you're paying for it.

She’s wearing doilies (sp?) - it is horrible!

Boy those girls are cute though. The older one is a real beauty.

The only thing the outfit is missing is the pink $500 tennis shoes she wore to the homeless shelter....

“Aren’t those girls a little young to be taken to a BAR?”

Depends on what kind of a “bar” it is.

Actually, when I was young, there were neighborhood bars or taverns or whatever where the family could go. The parents might have a beer or two and the kids soft drinks.

The atmosphere was not such as to attract drunks or rowdies, at least not in the early evening. Don’t know about later on.

Is the economy soooo bad now that MichelleMyBelle now has to wait tables in an ice cream parlor? Is this the new uni for PinkBerry? And two sweaters!?!?!? What, a precursor for when we all don’t have heat in our homes anymore (be fasionable like Mrs. O!!! Bundle up!!!)?

And the belts. Why the belts. Someone. Anyone. Explain any of these belts. Anyone???

Well, I can’t see trying to make something out of this. I know that if *I* went to London, going to a traditional Fish & Chips Vendor or Shoppe would be on my agenda. And not as an after-thought.

I’d want the full experience if possible, with the fish & chips served up in newspaper, even! Every bit as much as seeing the Tower of London and the Beefeaters and the Crown Jewels. I’d feel cheated of a truly British experience if I came home without doing so.

I'm usually kinder than most with regard to Mrs. Obama's fashion style.

Can't do that here. What was she thinking?

She did not actually wear that. That was the tablecloth that got stuck to her shirt when she got up.

They party hearty while America burns..
The resentment that the Americans are starting to feel is going to boil over and soon. This is so in your face to the American public that there are just no words. The kids are not cute to me...they display a precociousness I don't like and they are developing a Superior I deserve this plush life. Makes me wonder what the parents have told them...”don't worry kiddies..in 4 years it will not be an inauguration for a second term. I am working on the designs now for our royal diadems..Daddy will be King, I will be queen and you two will become the first Princesses of America..”

Had to look it up. Potty mouthed Brits, LOL! Warning: adult terminlogy


(wiki)
Meaning
The term wanker originated from British slang in the 1940s, based on the verb wank.[1] Wanker literally means “one who wanks (masturbates)”. It is normally intended as a general insult rather than as an accusation. It conveys contempt, not commentary on sexual habits. Wanker has similar meanings and overtones to American pejoratives like jerk,[2] and jerk-off. One connotation is of someone self-obsessed or a show-off [3] Another implication is that the wanker is unable to find a sexual partner.

By the 1970s, the general meaning of wanker had shifted from its literal origin (as a masturbator) to that of a generic insult,[4] i.e. “a contemptible person”. This shift in usage is comparable with that of dick, arse or jerk.

Looks like she took a strong belt while dressing

She's usually wearing some bizarre looking outfit. Yet the drooling liberal media tries to make her out to be some sort of 'fashion goddess'. Speaking of 'strong belts', I'd say that belt she's wearing in the pic is pretty 'strong'. Ugly as **** too.

That black belt is from her dominatrix collection. Remember during the campaign the talk about the Obamas enjoying fisting. YUK!

I will say, in the ninth picture down (the part on the right), Michelle looks gorgeous.

I have never seen her look better and it's a candid. Whoever snapped that picture should be hired. The outfit is so goofy though.

I remember the nasty WaPo Style article after Chief Justice Roberts had his swearing-in. The whole thing went on and on about his wife and children's light color clothes, calling them "Easter eggs." Mrs. Roberts and both darling youngsters were wearing very traditional beautiful clothes. Any mocking articles about MO's ridiculous clothes? Of course not, because if she wears it, it is the style, by definition.

This proves to me that MO wished she were not American, but a citizen queen of some kind of superworld.

Her brocade (or some other very formal fabric) caped outfit on inauguration day looked so much like what the queen of England wears walking up the aisle of Westminster Abbey for her coronation. fashionable? I don't think so.

She must have been drunk out of her gourd when she bought it ... and when she decided to wear it in public.

Regarding the belts, given that they all seem to be studded with metal and wide, I am wondering if she does not have a part time job as a dominatrix.

Money sure can’t buy taste or good manners. Greta had Laura Bush on her show last night. Laura was, as always, well dressed, gracious, articulate, soft-spoken, and talking about others (she was talking about breast cancer awareness and the work she and others have done in Arab countries on this). The contrast between our former First Lady and this dressed-in-kitchen-curtains bitter tacky woman just makes me want to scream.
