Hard-Hitting NYTimes Hails Michelle Obama's 'Elegant Arms' and Barack's Shirtless Photos
NewsBusters ^ | 10/02/12 | Clay Waters

Posted on 10/02/2012 12:21:11 PM PDT by DFG

The New York Times's Sunday Styles section offered some hard-hitting journalism about the toned-up and good-looking First Couple, complete with fabulous photos. Joyce Purnick mock-criticized Michelle Obama for looking so "toned and elegant" in "(Psst: We Feel Bad About Our Arms.)" Text box: "It's time to face the truth: we don't all look like the first lady."

I had expected to keep mum about my problem with Michelle Obama until after the election, but my frustration has gotten the better of me. I can contain it no longer.

I refer not to her politics, but to her arms-- her bare, toned, elegant arms. Enough!

"It's time to face the truth: we don't all look like the first lady."

And I for one am thankful I don't look like that ugly hulking manbeast.

Michelle’s brother was on one of the morning news shows today.

He’s the spitting image of a bald Michelle, same vocal inflections and mannerisms.

It was creepy. Family gatherings of that clan must be very intersting.

Stupid article. I am disgusted with Michelle Obama's politics on the rare occasions that she comments on real issues about our country, a country she was in her own words never "proud of" until her husband could take power. I am disgusted with Michelle's efforts to improve fitness among kids, not by modeling an active life or by talking up the benefits and encouraging but by using government force - by, for example, presuring school systems to cut the calories in school lunches without corresponding cuts in the price.

Despite that, both the drooling NYT article and the critical response are simply stupid. The big issues are the damage that crony capitalism and the transition to some form of socialism will do to our economy and to our freedom, the damage that ObamaCare will do to our economy and to our freedom, and the damage that Obama's other national socialist or soviet socialist policies will do to our economy and to our freedom. Michelle's questionable beauty and Obama's shirtless appeal to the sort of men who like skinny guys with limited clothing are such trivial issues that they should not be allowed to distract us from the immediate danger posed by Obama's agenda.

Other than her color, Michelle could easily be confused for one of those East German bulked-up and hulking Olympic athletes. Very manly, and fugly.

Well I remember her having rather flabby arms. It’s taken her four years as the First Lady to tone up her arms??? Sad.

Very manly,

Yes, she does appear testosterone laden. Barrack is quite feminine. Maybe she's really the husband and Barrack is really the wife. They're a weird couple, for sure.

In this white house Michell is the manly one and Bammy has girly man looks.

What a bunch of losers.

I saw a picture of our first lady, and she is ours, where she is holding a piece of vegetation close to her face. The caption unfortunately stated something along the lines of “are mountain gorillas really herbivores?” I am sure that comment was only because of her enormous glutes, which evoke mental images of our evolutionary ancestors, such as gorillas. Does anyone remember the photo taken in Europe where she was walking up a set of stairs flanked by Carla Bruni, arguably the culmination of the evolutionary process, and another average size woman? Our first lady's glutes were twice, at least,the width of those other women. The Times should comment on her enormous glutes instead of her arms. With glutes that huge she must squat eight or nine hundred pounds. And yet, I doubt that she could curl anything more that a large bunch of bananas, which weigh about twenty pounds and are loaded in potassium and very good for all of us. As a guy, I have been told to evolve,I think it is even a democrat imperative, but maybe our first lady should evolve. Her proportions just do not seem to have reached modernity yet.

I’m tired of seeing every TV bimbo going sleeveless no matter what the weather or the season as they pledge allegiance to the most profligate First Lady in our history. Most have flabby white arms that are no match for the muscled Amazon in the White House, but they keep hoping no one will notice.

And we are supposed to take these faddish intellectual adolescents seriously?

Could be. She does look like a male transvestite. They're from Chicago, so they could have gotten the girls anywhere for the right price.

Seriously, with Obomas down low (DL) history, what are the odds? (Pretty good, actually.)

There are "rumors" that Obama like guys, and he probably likes women too.

With Michelle, he gets both.

Most department stores sell sleeveless dresses today no matter what the season. It’s very difficult to find a dress with sleeves. Believe me, I’ve tried.

What about Benghazi?
What about "Fast & Furious"?


Speaking of Moochelle... what about her big fat @$$?

I remember hearing about the "eye candy" comment, but I didn't know exactly how Obama phrased it.

Last week, when he and the first lady were on “The View,” the president made it clear he didn’t seem entirely unaware of his physical appeal, joking (or was he?) with the cast that “I told folks I’m just supposed to be eye candy here for you guys.”

Guys??? LOL! Now I know that Obama is prone to using the slang term "you guys" a lot when he talks to people, but I think this time he intended for it to have a double meaning. You know, with his obvious support of homosexuality.

But, on the subject of the thread...it is truly a sad commentary that anyone votes based on someone's appearance. That said, I think Obama is skinny, his legs and arms are lanky, his ears are too big his lips are purple, and he has a phony smile. To me, he is not at all attractive. And Michelle...well as long as you only look at her oiled arms (which are too long anyway) and not the rest of her body. 'Nuff said.

Uses less fabric yet costs have increased. Kind of like making all the packaged items in the grocery store smaller yet costlier. Skirts are also getting shorter too. Skirt length seems to be a sign of the direction of the economy. Would love to see the “old fashioned” tailored well made suit return.

I doubt seriously if Michelle shops where most of us do. In fact I would suspect that if we were to buy anything off the rack it would have to be altered. Her idea of what is appropriate for the wife of the President to wear and mine are generations and worlds apart. She does have class, albeit low.

On The View? C'mon.

But, on the subject of the thread...it is truly a sad commentary that anyone votes based on someone's appearance.

It's sad that they talk the way they do. But they aren't voting based on people's appearances. They find these people attractive because they agree with them. If the Obamas were in the other party or they were themselves, they'd think differently about their looks.

I would like to see better quality fabric too. A lot of the the stuff you see today is cheap and flimsy looking. Have you noticed that you can’t find reasonably priced leather shoes anymore? They’re all made of man-made whatever, and if you go to Marshals to buy a leather handbag, you’re looking at $75 to $100.

Some of Mrs. Obama’s clothes look like she got them at Good Will. She really wore some ridiculous looking outfits at the beginning of her “reign.”
