Skip to comments.From the right to bare arms to the right to bare legs: Michelle Obama caught short over her shorts

There's a lot of important issues facing America at the moment.
The biggest issue, judging by the amount of noise, is the fact the First Lady made the un-president-ed step of wearing shorts on vacations.
However, no-one seems to be making practical suggestions for what Michelle Obama should have worn on a hike through the hot, dusty Grand Canyon. Short trip: Michelle steps off the plane, protected by some formally-clad, and presumably baking, guards
In an outcry which (almost) overshadows the the debate over the U.S. healthcare system, critics came out en masse to condemn Michelle's choice of clothing.
A search for 'Michelle Obama shorts' became one of Google New's hot topics, with various headlines proclaiming the shorts to be 'hideous'.
However, there were many voices ready to defend the First Lady.
One commentator for the LA Times wrote: 'Think about this for a minute. What should she have worn to the Grand Canyon? A tweed pantsuit? A ballgown? What do you wear on your summer vacation?

not bad...expected far worse.
What, no cardigan?
Subject is guilty.
We may not shop at Wal-Mart, but we look like we could.....
She looks fine. It’s summer.
More change you won’t believe. You would never see Hillary dressing like this, or Laura Bush, or Barbara Bush, or Nancy Reagan, or Roslyn Carter. These people are the trashiest people to ever inhabit the White House.
I agree. I’ve seen her in hideous. So hideous it makes you wish you could scrub your eyes out with a brillo pad.
There’s nothing wrong with this outfit. It’s just everyday clothes and she should stick to this type of thing and quit trying to be high-fashion.
How hard is this?
She should have worn long pants. Just simple slacks. Perhaps a top that doesn’t look as wrinkled and ratty as the one she has on, but the top is not that important.
As First Lady, Michelle Obama owes it to the rest of us to represent some class.
Instead, she got off that plane looking like she’d just come in from working in the garden.
There’s a place for tacky, and it isn’t in front of the cameras.
I think she’s just ignorant.
The Ghetto-ization of America proceeds apace.
Next she’ll show up in a thong at the beach.
She is no “lady” so expect more common “bro looks” for garb. Michele has no class or style. Now we see her for what she is - very common and unsophisticated. She needs to look in a mirror.
bah... you just KNOW these British tabloids are going to be snippy, since they feel their PM was dissed... /s
She's not the only one................
It boils down to one thing. “NO CLASS” There’s a limit that is acceptable. Can you imagine the Queen of England in a bikini? It’s hard to put into words but this is unacceptable.
There’s shorts, and then there’s shorts. Those are kinda ugly and a little short. She looks sloppy.
Twenty Seven people to look like that?
That said, these are photo ops. If Zero weren't a naif he would understand that. Get off the plane in dressy casual wear and have a place to change into the shorts before hiking. This is politics/P.R. 101 for crisakes.
