She looks like she was up all night and slept in that dress.

Take two aspirin, Auntie.

Sheila Jackson Lee would be very appropriate. She frequently appears in a hairdo of braids on the top of her head that make her look like an ACORN.

If so, she better stop drinking “adult” beverages.

Since there is a book coming out claiming that BHO is other than “straight,” her pregnancy would be “proof” of his manliness.

She’s just a fat pig.

Is Barbara Bush a fat pig? Mrs. Bush, whom most of us adore, easily broke 200 pounds during her husband's administration, but we did not say she was a fat pig.

Be fair. Criticize MO for her terrible manners, awful choice of clothing, resentful and grasping personality, pursuit of power, and generally ghastly behavior. But while she has put on ten or fifteen pounds since she got to the White House, she's not any fatter than most Americans.

Those belts make her LOOK pregnant. That’s where pregnant women wear belts if they do—up high above the belly. LOL.

The difference being Mrs. Bush did not pretend to be a fashionista, nor did the state run media attempt to portray Mrs. Bush as a fashionista.

Mrs. Obama is a dumpy middle-aged black lady with a big rear end. The media needs to stop telling us she is “one of the sexiest women in the world.” (Seriously, Mrs. Obama was in Maxim, heavily air-brushed.)

There’s plenty of women bigger than Michelle that look great in what they wear. There’s a show my daughter watches on TV sometimes where a couple folks come in and dump your wardrobe and start from scratch giving helpful tips along the way. Maybe M.O. could be on the show? And she could bring her husband along with her. I bet that episode would be one of the highest volume watched shows ever on TV. I would tune in.

MO has trouble distinguishing something that’s appropriate for night and day wear. She needs to have on a simple, dark colored dress. Russians don’t really like “powerful” women and she should dress accordingly. She needs to blend in with the men. She’s an idiot.

Absolutely. In all of what you have written, I agree with you. We're seeing a case of the Empress has no [decent] clothes--and no taste, no dignity, no culture. But let's not call her a fat pig because exaggerations reduce the credibility of the legitimate criticism, which is that she is a real embarrassment, and the press is an even bigger embarrassment.

Not only that - it’s cold and drizzly in Moscow right now. The temperature is in the 50’s during the day and in the 40’s at night. What is she doing in a dress like that? Is she having hot flashes?

Lets get this straight; TFDOTUS is a 6 ft. tall, lumbering, slouchy shrew with an a$$ that can soon declare statehood, tree stump thighs, bow legs, pidgeon toes and size 12 feet.
There is NO way she will EVER be ‘pretty’ or look good in ANY clothes, not matter how the state-controlled press tries to spin it! She is an embarrassent- a stain on America.

Someone needs to tell her that in Europe you wear dark colors — even in the summer. People look at you like you are from outer space over there if you have bright colors on.

Menopause. Hot flashes would explain the sleeveless dresses in the middle of winter and the sweaters in summer. The sweater/belt combination would hide the perspiration absorbing shields.

What I find so upsetting is that in her position she should be able to call upon a trusted friend to help her with appropriate fashion choices.

Also, in the line of culture, that you mentioned, comes appropriate manners, graciousness, protocol, body positioning (walking appropriately, stance, etc.)—these are learned activities! Is she not capable of understanding or will she not accept a few lessons in those areas? By not attempting to improve in these areas, she is doing a disservice to the country as well as herself.

Is it just me, or is she starting to look more like Cynthia McKinney every day.

If they tell us how glamorous she is every day we’ll begin to believe it. Same M O the _resident uses for policy making.

Am I missing something here???? Over and over, we’re told how she’s such a glamourous “beauty.”

I received a complimentary year's subscription to Glamour magazine due to some purchase or other from Amazon, ordinarily wouldn't be bothered, but it's okay *waste-of-time* material. Every issue has some note in it about how Michelle is "oh so glam", in the Q&A in the latest, some dingy woman writes, "Michelle 0bama always looks so put-together, any tips?" I shake my head at all of it -- are any of these people actually LOOKING at her, the photos I see??!! GLAMOUR?

I'm not with the program, either ... thank goodness!!

If you look at the photos at the Yahoo source there are two of Svetlana Medvedev—# 15 and 33. She certainly looks like a very conservative demure person. Also there is another of MO taken from the side in that terrible thing she wore on the 4th which someone on FR described as a sports bra attached to a pillow case. There is no mistaking the weight gain there. I’m surprised she didn’t wear her black or clear belt with that one because it actually would have matched the dress and could have been worn right where she likes it. Maybe she wears them so high up because she paid a small fortune for them and they no longer fit if she puts them at waist level.

I wouldn't care what she looked like if the media didn't keep feeding us these absurd "most beautiful" stories. She's a typical middle-aged black lady. Not ugly; not beautiful.

Exactly. There wouldn't be near the kinds of catty comments there are if it was so *in your face* and so totally inaccurate. The wife of the president, ANY wife of any president, doesn't have to be a looker, trying to convince me she is when it's perfectly obvious she is not is beyond the pale.

Exactly right. I liked Mrs. Bush. She dressed appropriately for her age and position as First Lady. She was mature, kind and gracious. In short, an exceptional First Lady.

Mrs. Obama is an embarrassment, the least of which is her bizarre and immature taste in fashion.

You have a point - the MSM NEVER gushed about President Bush's wife. The MSM might be using Michelle as another way to stick it to us (conservatives).

That said - Michelle's obviously a loving mother and wife - she brings a warm family type joy to the White House.

Here's what I'm wondering ... where is the WH assistant who helps the First Lady chose her wardrobe, not just the purchase but the actual "What am I wearing today?" gal who knows the schedule of events?? Hillary Clinton no means a dish nor a clothes-horse, but she was generally outfitted appropriate to the occasion. It wasn't until she headed for the Senate that she began the pantsuit-and-only-this-pantsuit wardrobe.

It's like the gaffes from the State Department, has Michelle 0bama foregone the Letitia Baldridges of the world?? If she is choosing her wardrobe herself, she has poor taste and style and really, puffing it up this way, insisting that she's stunning, glamorous, gorgeous and all the rest doesn't help her one bit. Better to have someone who is honest and helpful, especially when she is in the public eye, light so often.

Unsurprising, really. If you reject capitalism and democracy, the premises upon which this nation was founded, chances are you're not going to be on board with our social norms either. Very common in leftists.

Only recall how they used to describe Nancy Reagan, anorexic, emaciated, the fawning eyes as she watches her husband give a speech ... I don't know that I can even remember the last compliment they may have given her. She was always neat, presentable, dressed for the occasion, dignified, stockings, (no matter the weather, a lady always wears hosiery), very tastefully dressed.

There's no objective reason whatever to be lauding the poor clothing choices of the wife of the current president.

Just got to your post, Tarheel, this is the very point I was making myself. Trust me, if I were married to a politician, I would need comportment and deportment lessons my own self, it's no shame to admit you need assistance this way. But especially if I happened to be married to a man who thought to run for president, I would never have allowed myself to go through the campaign without having someone instruct me on the proper behaviors, it is a reflection on America, not just on her as a person who lives here, why has this been forgotten? Why isn't there ANYONE of the *old school in Washington* with the guts to take her aside and say, "Michelle, my dear, let me fill you in on a couple of things ..."? Are they all so darned afraid of being called racist for daring to offer some (obviously needed) advice?? Or really, is she just so stubborn and arrogant that whatever may have been tentatively offered was brushed aside immediately?

It puzzles me, considering the business of being First Lady, you have to contend with all manner of cultures that you just don't encounter as a Chicago homemaker or professional woman. It is an embarrassment to us that it is allowed to continue this way.
