Please note that Mrs. Obama chose to show off her legs today instead of her wonderful “fit” arms. Her skirt was hiked up half way to the stars in that photo.
The woman needs to take lessons from other prominent women on how to dress.
She is an embarrassment.

I thought Rosa Parks was the Civil Rights icon? I never heard of this woman.

Does obama have anything on his mind other than race?

That dress of Michelle’s is really tacky. Nothing like sitting at a funeral with bare knees. Especially when your knees seem to have little screws holding them together.

After the past two years, I have to say an emphatic NO! Like most liberals, he views everything deep through the prism of something shallow.

I think we need a pic of him crying for future FR threads about his poll numbers (and for general amusement).

Tears for a non-relative & non for granny toot? Instead he put her on ice and kept on campaigning. I say, something is rotten in Denmark & it's high time we find out just who this fraud is.

BTW, did you get a load of the look on Flotus’s face? She seems annoyed by his public display of compassion & how about Stretch P, she sure seems to be enjoying the services of a dead one. Or did she get a botox injection before attending?

LOL...just like Bill Clinton at Ron Brown’s funeral. What a phony. He was a little Muslim boy in Indonesia when this woman was an activist in the USA. He has absolutely nothing in common with American Blacks and just sopped up the gravy from affirmative action later.

I wonder if she died knowing that 0bama has set back race relations at least a full generation since he came into the national spotlight? It makes me sick that he seems to think he is some kind of hero in the realm of race relations, when in fact, he has brought racism to a level not seen in many, many years.

YOU are talking about her looks.

I am talking about her choice of clothes and how much skin she shows.

When you are First Lady, your choice of dress is mentioned all the time.

Remember how the press mention Jackie Kennedy’s clothes? Her choice of clothes was wonderful. She was admired for the way she dressed.
Now, that lady was good looking also and I am not saying Michele Obama is not, only that she shows way too much skin for a First lady.

He didnt even bother to go to his Grandmother’s funeral. Went over a couple of weeks later and tossed her ashes in the ocean. Not a tear shed.

Well what the hell all she did was raise him from the time he was 10, and she was white. I understand.
