    WASHINGTON, D.C. – First lady Michelle Obama is flying 150 students and their chaperones to Washington D.C. to dote on their college acceptance, including undocumented students enrolling this year through her husband’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Amairany Bautista, an undocumented student who graduated from Lincoln High School in Tacoma, Washington, will be among those trekking to the White House July 23 for the special event for students who have overcome odds to attend college, The News Tribune reports. “On June 15, 2012, President Obama announced a way to apply for a two-year work permit that gave me some...

    She was only 15 minutes late. That's amazing! After all, she is the First Lady of the United States. She has a busy schedule. She was scheduled to speak to the Girl Up Leadership Summit at 11:15 a.m. And by 11:27ish she was in the house. "You all look amazing," Michelle Obama told the 200-plus activists who represent some of the world's 1,000 Girl Up clubs. They'd come to Washington, D.C., to bond, to learn about girls' issues and to lobby Congress. But she also made two subtle and important points about activism. Point No. 1: Activism should be personal....

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)During a passionate address at historically black Tuskegee University Saturday, Michelle Obama said she refused to let the "sting" of racial bias define her. "Over the years, folks have used plenty of interesting words to describe me. One said I exhibited a little bit of 'uppityism,'" the first lady said. "Cable news charmingly referred to me as 'Obama's baby mamma.' "All of the chatter, the name-calling, the doubting, all of it was just noise," she said. "It did not define me, it didn't change who I was, and most importantly, it couldn't hold me back." Conjuring up the incidents in...

    It's not just her husband. She is simply and completely dishonest. They're quite a matched pair. Over the last couple of weeks we've been hearing her tell us how her husband "struggled" as a youth. CHARLOTTE — Michelle Obama’s convention message was simple: Barack Obama understands the hardships of working Americans. He’s been there himself. “For Barack, these issues aren’t political, they’re personal because Barack knows what it means when a family struggles,” she said. The first lady used the word “struggle” or a variation seven times throughout the speech, much of which was an extended retelling of the Obamas’...

    First lady Michelle Obama increasingly is being used by the campaign to boost the president’s support among African-American women, military families and gays. Her campaign priorities are showcased in a June 3 post on the campaign website which features the first lady warning supporters about the steps needed to register, lauding gays, lesbians and military families. -SNIP- The first lady’s tone in the video is a sharp change from her widely panned remarks in 2008. In Feb. 2008, she declared that “for the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country because it feels like hope...

    President Obama's most valuable fundraiser - first lady Michelle Obama - landed Friday in San Francisco, where she urged 350 supporters at a high-dollar re-election campaign event to get involved because too much is at stake in this election. She reminded the audience not to forget "how my husband appointed those two brilliant Supreme Court justices." "For the first time in history, our daughters and our sons watched three women (sit) on the Supreme Court," she said. "And we're now feeling the impact of those court decisions that will affect our children's lives for decades to come. On privacy, on...

    Grumpy Michelle frowns through state dinner as President thanks Iraq War veterans and their families By Daily Mail Reporter and Associated Press Last updated at 10:40 AM on 1st March 2012 With a formal dinner for the few, President Barack Obama on Wednesday paid solemn tribute to the many. The president, who opposed the Iraq war from its outset, thanked those who fought its battles by sitting down to a candlelit meal with a small cross section of the million-plus who served there over the past nine years. Though the mood was reflective, the First Lady was caught looking rather...

    In 2010, she wore red. In 2011, she wore white. So, what did Michelle Obama wear in 2012? A politically-charged, patriotic shade of blue. The First Lady looked regal in a short-sleeved, sapphire-blue, Barbara Tfank dress Tuesday evening for the President's State of the Union address. Tfank, a New York and Los Angeles-based designer, prides herself upon designing pieces that are "timeless." [Snip] The First Lady's hair and makeup looked perfectly elegant as well... and we're dying to see some photos of her shoes.

    NEW ORLEANS — Chaka Khan is more than angry. Instead of getting to rest before her show at the Louisiana Superdome, the R&B star has been booked for two speaking engagements. She’s holed up in her hotel suite, fuming. Outside, her assistants are waiting for her to open the door. Her makeup artist, Derrick Rutledge, is waiting, too. He just flew in to do her after working on Michelle Obama in the East Wing. After New Orleans, he’s scheduled to fly out to do Oprah Winfrey before returning home to Washington. But first Rutledge has to persuade Khan to open...

    "Better Homes and Gardens" hasn't had a public figure on its cover in 48 years. With President Obama's approval rating plummeting along with the nation's employment picture, they must have figured now was the time to break with tradition and do an ultimate exposure puff piece on his wife: Better Homes and Gardens will feature First Lady Michelle Obama on the cover of its August issue - the first public figure to grace the magazine's cover in 48 years. Obama will be the focus of an article on healthful eating for children. The issue will hit newsstands July 19. Editors...

    ...the trip is already provoking disappointment from Africa advocates who argue that President Obama, whose father was Kenyan, hasn't devoted enough time to the continent since winning the presidency. Mwiza Munthali, public outreach director of TransAfrica Forum, argues that U.S. officials "are not seeing Africa as a big priority. There has been some ambivalence." The president has made just one trip to sub-Saharan Africa since his Jan. 2009 inauguration and has chosen not to accompany his wife on her journey. This isn't the first time the First Lady has come under fire for travel plans. Below we review some of...

    Barack ain’t got nothin’ on Michelle In an earlier post this week, I wrote about James Clyburn’s claim that opposition to Barack Obama is largely due to racism. Not to be outdone by her husband, we now learn that sadly, Michelle Obama is also a victim of the worst kind of bigotry. Less than three years into the job, the first lady is on her third chief of staff, third social secretary, second communications director, the White House chief usher recently departed, and Mishy’s press secretary’s last day was Friday. Whew! The Guinness Book of World Records level of staff...

    --SNIP--SNIP- IRT: Whom is she likely to wear? Ms. Tomer: It’s likely to be a celebration of Indian-American designers. Naeem Khan said the first lady had several other gowns by him and was excited to see when she was going to wear them. This may be the chance to do it, although it kind of depends on her schedule. She recently wore a necklace by jewellery designer Ranjana Khan, Naeem’s wife. I wouldn’t be surprised if she wore more of her pieces on this occasion. Michelle Obama is known for her statement necklaces. She’s also likely to wear Rachel Roy,...

    With her husband facing electoral oblivion at next week's mid-terms, Michelle Obama is clearly prepared to do anything she can to help. Whether showing off her dance moves on Ellen was a politically astute gimmick, however, remains to be seen. The First Lady appeared on the daytime chat show just hours after her husband went on The Jon Stewart Show in a desperate attempt to woo younger voters. The President has been attacked for appearing on a comparatively lightweight show hosted by a comedian. At one point Stewart even called him 'dude', the first time word has been used...

    The more popular half of the White House's first couple is hitting the campaign trail. Michelle Obama, who has largely avoided political events this midterm cycle, is slated to hold rallies and fundraisers for Democratic Senate candidates in seven states over the next two weeks, including stops in Illinois, Colorado, and Wisconsin. Obama campaigned extensively for her husband during the 2008 presidential race, although her individual appearances were generally low-key, featuring intimate roundtable events and discussions about specific policy issues like support for military families. The upcoming tour of midterm battleground states -- Illinois, Colorado, Wisconsin, New York, Washington, Connecticut,...
