Skip to comments.Michelle Obama shifts into 2012 campaign mode
Posted on 10/19/2011 5:42:40 AM PDT by Rummyfan
First lady Michelle Obama has gold-plated her appeal, in part, by playing it safe, focusing on signature issues and family while staying out of the partisan politics so deeply loathed by many Americans
Her value as the most popular member of the Obama administration is inevitably sending her back into the field, raising money and delivering speeches for a 2012 reelection effort that increasingly needs some happier news.
Humanizing the president is a traditional and nearly inevitable role for the first lady at campaign time, which tends to roll around after the shine has come off a president and supporters need a refresher on his likability.

I think she has had some cosmetic work done....
Looks like someone did a pi$$ poor job of hair straightening this time.
Its my personal side that makes the strongest impression on the trail
Her husband is doing the same thing. He's campaigning on the tax payers dime while he pockets all the campaign cash he can rake in. By election time, these two scrounges should have quite the bag full.
These freeloaders will also use the dumbass protesting freeloaders to FORCE people to donate - or else! (Extortion is a community organizers greatest skill.)
Anyone who votes for this loser again is a suicidal idiot.
“I think she has had some cosmetic work done...”
Doesn’t matter how much cosmetic work she has done, she will always be an ugly, nasty, loathsome, grifting POS. Lord, I truly despise her and Barry.
LOL That sure isn't saying much.
How true, and what kind of politician needs to remind voters of his likeability?
Yes; they seem to have filed her australopithecus teeth down a bit.
She is about to become the Secretary of Loot.
Yeah, but the teeth are still a problem... “Nobody knows the schtruggles I’ve seen”.
Don’t you wish her “hate Whitey” tape from Jeremiah Wright’s church hadn’t been flushed pre ‘08 election? That woulda led to the road to nowhere for the Usurpers.
Add to your apt description: bitter, hateful, racist rageaholic.
Another botox queen?
VFW Call to Action
Stop Balancing Budget on Backs of Military and Veterans
The individual letters signed by Levin and McCain were far more ominous, because they both agreed with proposals President Obama announced last month to create a commission to examine the current military retirement system, and to alter military TRICARE benefits for those retirees age 65 and older. The president also wants to increase pharmacy copayments for military dependents and retirees of all ages, but both senators suggested the proposal needs further DOD review. THIS HAS ALREADY GONE INTO EFFECT on Oct 1, 2011
Regarding the military retirement system, Levin wrote the commission should expand its scope to “encompass all aspects of military compensation, including the current system of basic pay, allowances (including the housing allowance), special and incentive pays, and health care, as well as the tax treatment of the various components of military pay.” Levin also agreed with the president’s proposal to institute a $200 annual fee for military retirees age 65 and older who are enrolled in TRICARE for Life, but he would link future fee increases to the percentage amount of a retiree’s annual cost of living adjustment. The president’s proposal has no such linkage, and if approved as is, TRICARE for Life fees would rise from the recommended $200 in 2012 to $295 in 2013. This would be in addition to Medicare Part B payments they must already pay.
And what woild that be as I don’t see anything different.
I think she has had some cosmetic work done....
CAUTION: VPL, er VThongL alert!
Michelle Fashion Police Alert Ping!
FReepmail maggief if you want on or off this ping list
Maggie, it’s so funny you always send the pic of Stacey & Clinton from ‘What Not to Wear.’
I have 50 of their shows recorded on Tivo. That’s how I escape from politics at night...
I literally cannot stand to see the face of obama or his wife on tv.
That pic is so embarrassing for michelle obama. She broke so many ‘What not to Wear’ rules. YIKES!
I’m sure Stacey & Clinton like the obamas, but I hope they don’t say so. Then I’ll have to delete the 50 shows I recorded...:)
What is wrong with these people?
She’s skirting Michael Jackson territory when it comes to plastic surgery. Toss up between who looks more evil, though.
This picture is from October, 2008.
Today her wrinkles around her eyes are gone. The texture of her skin is more glowing and dew-like, and that makes her look younger. I think her nose looks different. And she must have changed the color of her contacts.
Her hair... before in 2008 was longer with that flip thing and that made it look more severe and dated. But, she has it going up and down and in different lengths. I think she does wear wigs, because of the frequent changes.
I know that is a part of her culture. And yet, I think it makes for weird optics. It just doesn’t read well. I find it jarring to look and have the first thought be, “Oh. She changed her hair, again.”
When you look at the above picture and the look at the pictures from the US Open with her on the court and also the state dinner in January when she wore the red McQueen gown, the above woman from 2008 looks like Michelle Obama’s older sister!
And that’s saying a lot. Because Michelle Obama looks mean and ugly most of the time, from the inside out... because she isn’t a kind and happy woman. She’s an ideologically driven Marxist, like her husband.
She had major work done this past summer around the time of Hussein’s birthday. The major work done on her chin required her to eat only liquids for several weeks, causing her to lose about 15-20 pounds but she’s already packing the pounds back on.
Gosh! Forget the plastic surgery. She needs to get that terrible overbite fixed to keep that lower lip of hers from jutting out.
I heard Stacy talk about Michelle Obama’s dressing habits.
She said her clothes are fine. She said the biggest mistake Michelle Obama is making is the fit of the clothing.
New designers are sending Mrs. Obama their designed clothing, begging her to wear their fashions. And she does choose many of their designs. She wants to be seen as a fashion-forward woman. A woman who is making her mark on fashion. (I know! Roll your eyes!)
But, when these huge boxes of beautifully wrapped designer dresses arrive at the White House, they are displayed beautifully for the First Lady to choose from. She chooses, tries them on and picks.
She misses the big step of getting them fitted for her. These designers are never called to the White House to fit the dresses. Mrs. Obama doesn’t realize that she should call them in.
When it comes to an established designer, she’ll go through that step, because that established designer demands it and she thinks that’s how they do their job and she goes along with it.
But with the others, the lesser-established designers who are just starting out and begging for Michelle Obama to wear anything that they’ve designed, she calls the shots. She knows if she chooses anything they’ve done, they’ll keep sending her free clothing.
She thinks she knows better than someone who designs clothes, and doesn’t understand that she does look like she just threw something on and dashed out the door. Her fawning, meek staff have never told her how awful she really looks. If they had, she wouldn’t have worn the ‘boob belt’ more than once.
I say that’s why she often looks like she took the drapes down from the Blue room and threw them on over her shoulders.
In August... more nose work, full face lift, major work done on her chin to help get rid of the “monkey Mouth” and no that’s not racist, white people also sometimes have monkey mouths. She had to be on liquids for about a month while the jaw and chin healed. You will find NO closeups of her and very few pictures at all and NO closeups for a month after the surgery. Probably no lipo, but could have had some done. Hard to tell because being on a liquid diet for 4-6 weeks, caused her to lose about 20 pounds. Cost of work done, around 50K.
Get glasses if you don’t see any difference:
Definite nose job. And the thong? OMG!
If her nose is smaller, which I think it is, it just draws attention more to those enormous teeth and gums.
LOL That sure isn't saying much.
yep. That's like saying she is the prettiest turd in the punchbowl.
I cut Fox News and stopped listening to talk radio. It’s amazing how anxious I start feeling now after only listening for ten or fifteen minutes. At some point I’m probably going to have to say Farewell, Cruel Free Republic as well. But not today.
Thanks for the info. A couple of times ‘What not to Wear’ did over women who worked for the obama campaign or Michelle. I have a Tivo Season Pass for WNTW, and I immediately deleted those episodes.
WOW! Talk radio does not bother me if the viewpoint is coming from our side, but I cannot stand actually seeing obama's face anymore.
I did not know about Michelle’s plastic surgery, probably because I avoid looking at her...:)
That was a risky thing for her to do, especially if there had been some type of national or family emergency where she would have had to show her healing face.
Michelle Obama wouldn’t see it as risky. She felt entitled to the surgery and wanted it. The idea of an emergency and a necessity to appear wouldn’t have phased her in the least. She’s doesn’t think of others, first.
Thanks for the ping.
That was a happy baby. Now, a surly, frowning, petulant child, just like her parents.
