US First Lady Praised for Style, Warmth in China
ABC News ^ | March 23, 2014 | By DIDI TANG and LOUISE WATT

Posted on 03/23/2014 7:29:07 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

... Mrs. Obama has been photographed at famous spots including the Forbidden City and Great. She has won compliments for her elegant clothing and her interactions with ordinary people.

She visited part of the Great Wall in the northern Beijing suburbs. There, the first lady and her daughters walked a stretch of the wall that looks out to a massive rock inscription on a hillside that reads in Chinese: "Loyal to Chairman Mao."

T-shirts of President Barack Obama in a Mao hat that are common at Beijing tourist sites were absent from souvenir stalls Sunday, although at least one vendor showed a whole box of them when asked.

Obligatory complements from the sycophants in the press whose livelihoods depend on the "pleasure of the Administration."

Absolutely disgusting disgraceful lies.

The Obama press office (MSM) is heard from on this extremely important global issue.

Why was Michelle allowed to take both her daughters with her? I thought China had a one-child policy.

How weird to do a story about the First Ladies “style” and not have one accompanying picture. I wanted to see what these fools thought style was today.

I could not finish reading the article.
All that came to mind was Argentine media stories about Juan and Evita during their heyday.
And some of the “reporting” by the American press about Jackie Kennedy.

I think I will wait until I see the Brutish media reports. They are biased, but usually accurate. Sometimes

LOL…all hands on deck in the ObamaBot media to salvage the failed concept of Mooshelle as fashionable and elegant. Don’t believe your lyon’ eyes….particularly when she was photographed with the stunning First Lady of China.

Hypocracy-—thy name is Obama.

The ‘first lady’ is spouting about Freedom of Speech, while her husband uses NSA to spy on every American—while he give away control of the internet to the UN—and while he tries to take all of our guns away from us, which I consider a Freedom of Speech item, as I will be able to DEFEND my Freedom of Speech.

This pair have more faces that a total crazy person, but then, I have always considered both of them certifiable crazy.

Someone remind me again what the topic of Michelle’s college thesis was....

I remember it was ‘What I Hate About America’-—or some such.

Those Chinese people are scared of her because she is a giant!

A few years ago in Hawaii Chinese people came off of a bus and filed past me. I am 5'3” tall and there was only one person on that bus that was as tall as I was.

Are there any pictures of Moosechell with her new friends?

Shades of Eva Peron........................... Yup, just another Rainbow Tour, one of many that we pay for. The Obamas certainly know how to milk a good thing. These people think the Presidency is an 8 year vacation. They are going to need a train to move all their world tour photos when they leave.

On the playground we used to have a saying: point to the worst Eff-up on the opposing team and declare him “The best man we got”.

I’m sure China enjoys all the catch-up they are getting during the Obama Years.

China’s first lady outshines Michelle Obama

THU 01 AUG 13 | 08:43 PM ET

Peng Liyuan, wife of Chinese president Xi Jinping made this year’s Vanity Fair International Best Dressed list, while America’s first lady failed to make the cut.

http://www.straitstimes.com/breaking-news/lifestyle/story/first-ladies-fashion-20140321

This outfit by 3.1 Phillip Lim has got to be one of the worst Michelle Obama has ever worn in public. It looks like something an old man would wear to tai chi practice - loose sleeveless jacket, baggy shirt and even more baggy trousers. Even her mother’s trousers were cut more stylish and flattering.

Perhaps Mrs Obama was thinking practical - after all, she did start off her day at the Beijing Normal School, where she tried her hand at calligraphy and played some table tennis, so she needed something loose and easy to move about in.

Peng Liyuan, on the other hand, looks smart and put-together in her double-breasted blue suit. Love the pops of red, from her blouse that peeks out from under her jacket, to her envelope clutch and her earrings. Her belt has also been artfully tied and her collar turned up just so. This is a woman who definitely pays attention to detail.

I had a Chinese student (From Beijing) live with me for 2 years.

He was disgusted with the laziness and stupidity that he observed from the general “minority” population.

The Chinese are aware of the character of Americans and certain “minorities.”

They don't respect our lack of discipline. They don't respect our lack of ambition.

I doubt very much that they are impressed by the sasquash-esk First Lady.

We know Mooch has no style.
We know the First Scold, who sees the US as a "downright mean country", has no warmth.
So who got paid off to write this puff piece?
