We only see a snapshot, without a full moving picture, we can only conjecture that it was or was not a full salute. Not that I’m defending this POS, just say’in

But I’m inclined to think that someone said..no you are NOT taking separate planes...and when you land...don’t be all smiley. There has been an earthquake and an upcoming hurricane. Look concerned!!

Looks like the vacation sharpened Professor You Lie’s reasoning powers:

I need to finally make a useful decision for my daughters.
I added so much debt to their future - - - .
It is so depressing that I can’t even make a speech about it.
I’ll just have to keep calling “debt” an “investment.”
It has worked so far. ( Everyone is scared to call me out on that distinction. Maybe Joe Wilson might.someday.)
I do so like the picture on the wall of my favorite river in the world.
Can’t think of the name right now, - - - starts with a “D” - - - .
Oh well, it doesn’t matter!
Hmm - - - what decision should I make today to help my daughters?
Hurricane Irene will cause sea level to rise, hmmm - - - .
Well, we are just a few feet above sea level here at the Vineyard that Martha built.
The White House is on a hill well above sea level.
And the Oval Office is on the Second floor!
That is it!
No photo ops of me filling sandbags here!
Guess what girls?
We are going home!
( Wow! It really DOES feel good to make a decision that is good for people other than myself! )

she has a run in her nylons!

The run in her nylons must have happened at the mansion. She might of snagged them when she was chasing him to beat him about the head because they were leaving. I think she can take him easy.

They sure aren’t the picture of a happy family, they look more and more miserable all the time.

I can’t blame the kids for being miserable, I can’t imagine raising kids with SS up their butts every minute and both parents telling stuff to the whole world about them. Grades, fat...whatever. They don’t get to be normal kids.

I imagine Michelle isn’t to thrilled with Obama’s recent comments about her— letting Michelle have her way 90% of the time and about Michelle’s shopping and his golf clubs. That has to be more than incidental—it’s on his mind— that’s why it was his example.

I wonder how long it will take after Obama is out of office for Michelle to file for divorce?

They are certainly a sad, sorry looking bunch. However, I don’t think Michelle is wearing nylons/pantyhose. She never has before. I think it has something to do with the light reflecting on her overly oiled skin. Or, maybe some of the oil came off. But for her to have on pantyhose...well, THAT would be historic.

I have never believed the media's fairytale about the Obama's "loving" relationship. I think there was a pact made between them and their "handlers" long ago that they would precent a facade while Barack was in office. And, along the same lines, Michelle got to demand excessive travel perks so she could get away as often as she wanted...or else!

They always appear miserable, always disengaged or with forced smiles. And both criticize each other to a strange extent, especially Michelle. She faults Barack often and in a smirky way when she is interviewed and asked about him. She only says anything even fringing on praise of him when she is giving a political speech.

Flying back together. A win win.

Quashes the ‘Muslim men won’t travel with their wives’ rumor.

Separate plane expense. Silences the howls of extravagance.

(Of course that 2nd plane is sitting on the tarmac around Cape Cod and has to be flown back. So the only expense savings is the extra weight of Michelle and Co.)

President Barack Obama salutes.........
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

That a man with multiple social security numbers and a crudely forged birth “document” salutes our military is disgusting.

Where are our highest military officers that would allow this to happen? Where is the evidence that these highest military officers sought peaceful and legal clarification from congress and the courts regarding Obama’s highly questionable natural born citizenship? When did overlooking fraud, identity theft, and constitutional illegitimacy become part of the military code of honor? What ever happened to military professionalism? Is this what they teach at West Point and the other military academies? ( Just wondering.)

Only when ordering or eating ice cream, LOL. Otherwise they seem to always have a sourpuss expression. Either they absolutely hate the cameras (which could be attributed to comments their parents have made to them and influenced their attitude)...or they have grown up with the same chip on their shoulders as their parents...or they are just miserable. Probably all of the above.

They surely do not seem like happy, giggling, carefree children who enjoy life...or who are especially glad to have all the advantages they have, even with SS around, etc. Never noticed continual sourness with any previous kids in the WH, of any president.

I bet the WH staff could tell us some stories about unpleasant behavior also. And probably about a lot of unpeasant arguing and behavior of the parents, too. Kids are a reflection of how they are raised and what is going on at home. No matter how Barack and Michelle claim to have a happy marriage, and how they put on a front of a happy famiy...the looks on their daughters' faces (most of the time) do not validate those claims.

She is not wearing pantyhose. If it was a run in her pantyhose, the skin showing through would not be white, LOL.

She keeps a lot of oil on her skin, as we have all noticed before. I believe the "stripe" down her leg is just the way the light is reflecting off the oiled leg. Michelle has never appeared to have any sort of hose/nylons/pantyhose on ever before.
