´Nobody disputes the quality of the First Lady´: President Obama pays loving tribute to wife Michelle as she appears in stunning red dress at the Inauguration Ball Daily Mail (UK), by Louise Boyle & Lydia Warren
With the formal portion of the day over, all that was left for President Obama and First Lady Michelle was to kick up their heels at the inauguration ball to celebrate his second term. The Obamas appeared on stage at the Washington Convention Center to wild cheering and thunderous applause from thousands of people. First Lady Michelle´s choice of dress was finally revealed - a dramatic, red chiffon and velvet gown by Jason Wu. The designer had also created her dress for the 2008 ball. Obama paid tribute to his wife saying that although he was often criticized
The only good thing about today has been my book sales have been doing pretty good. The book is based on Owebama and the conspiracies around him and.... oh yes! A friend of mine was on Glenn Beck´s show today and got a plug in for my website!
Beck was the only TV I could watch today. I couldn´t bear to even watch that man desecrate the Lincoln Bible.
That first pic made me think of Fred and Ginger. What is that weird thing she always does.with her mouth. It´s like she´s always pursing her lips. And we all got to see those famous arms. I´ve been depressed all day at the use of my tax dollars to fund these two and their lavish lifestyle. Remember how the New York Times criticized Bush for having an inaugural during a war? How about all the money spent this weekend and the economy stinks and people are hurting, yet not a peep from anyone at the NYT or anywhere else. I´m disgusted.
He wants to be so like Lincoln that he plagiarizes his speeches. Remember that Lincoln was President during the Civil War. May the outcome of Zippy´s War be different. OK all you NSA guys, figure that one out.
I´m less impressed with your armpits, Michelle. They need to be de-stretched, sweetie. Those marks come from muscling up in the gym and the associated skin expansion that occurs. Somebody should have advised you that it´s not an appropriate look unless you´re planning to scare horses in the parade.
As for the dress itself, it´s marginally elegant. You can only do so much - much depends on the wearer.
i guess you have to now define the word quality. it appears that it doesn´t mean the same to me as it does to the nyt. i don´t really care about michelle (may i call you michelle?) except that she exudes "no class." may she slide into the dustbin of history and grow wings on those precious arms of hers. am i being mean or what.
I don´t know how much of our money she spent on that new look but it´s wasted money. Her bangs should have been about a foot longer and I think she had botox in her cheeks. She´s still ugly inside and out. He is the most condescending phoney I have seen in a long time. Couldn´t even watch TV today. It was truly a funeral for our country.
I wish someone would train her how to walk and move in a ball gown. She lumbers and fights with the dress. And the video of her shoveling in the food at the banquet.....she looks like someone who never had a bite to eat. I just caught glimpses (and felt terribly sad and depressed). My country is gone and yesterday was not an inauguration of a U.S. President, but a crowning of a king.
Obama is running from Obamacare to his zone of strength and core value: class warfare. Democrats are geniuses at playing on group identity. When I ask friends what principles lead them to vote Democrat, it is a hard question for them. After a baffled pause, I often hear this: "Republicans are the party of the rich." It is said as if that is all that needs to be said: not like me, exploiting people, bad for the country. Not my party. As the liberal Howard Dean says, many Republicans "have never made an honest living in their lives." Democrats have
Senate Republicans on Wednesday launched an around-the-clock talkathon over some of President Obama´s nominees in the wake of a new, Democratic-driven rules change last month that weakened the GOP´s ability to block nominations. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., threatened to hold the Senate in session through the night to deal with 11 nominations, most of them non-controversial. Republicans retain the power to use up all procedural time, including post-cloture debate time on nominees. If Republicans refuse to give up their allotted debate time, the Senate could be in session continuously into Saturday -- or longer. "If we have to
CHICAGO-- Chicago will soon host a sculpture that’s both inspired and angered viewers around the world, reports CBS Chicago. CBS affiliate station WBBM Newsradio’s John Cody reports “Homeless Jesus” will be installed Friday outside the Chicago offices of Catholic Charities. Canadian sculptor Tim Schmalz said Pope Francis has blessed the statue, but two cathedrals have rejected his bronze image of Jesus on a park bench. “Imagine a life-sized figure totally wrapped up in a blanket, or a sleeping bag, with the only thing visible the feet of the figure,” he said. “If you look in the feet, you actually see
Alabama kicker Cade Foster has received a lot of hate since missing three field goal attempts in his team’s stunning loss to Auburn, but he has at least one fan: former President George W. Bush. The 43rd president reportedly sent Foster a personalized letter encouraging him to press on through life’s challenges. “Dear Cade (#43), life has its setbacks. I know! However, you will be a stronger human with time. I wish you all the best. Sincerely, another 43, George Bush,” the letter reads. Foster posted a picture of the letter to his Twitter account Wednesday. Foster was inundated with
The Hollywood Reporter gathered some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry Wednesday morning at the Beverly Hills Hotel for the 22nd annual Women in Entertainment breakfast to honor the Power 100 and present Oprah Winfrey with a leadership award named for former Paramount and 20th Century Fox exec Sherry Lansing. Lansing took the stage at the packed event, sponsored by Lifetime, Gucci, Samsung Galaxy, Audi, Roberto Coin, Guggenheim, City National Bank, the Gersh Agency, Loyola Marymount University and the Entertainment Industry Foundation, to speak about Winfrey, whom she called one of her personal idols. "You conduct your life in
President Barack Obama reportedly plans to nominate Stanley Fischer to be the next vice chairman of the Federal Reserve. The former Bank of Israel Chief would take over for Janet Yellen when she leaves the post to become Fed chairwoman. Fischer, a dual-citizen of the U.S. and Israel, served as the head of Israel’s central bank for eight-years before stepping down on June 30 of this year. Later this summer, the economist sung the Fed’s praises on the Charlie Rose Show. “The United States managed — although it is hard for Americans to believe — managed the crisis better than
Walking out of a private conference room beneath the Capitol Building on Tuesday, Republican House members looked tired. Not the typical "I-had-a-bad-night’s-sleep" tired but something deeper — a look of battle exhaustion. Unlike past meetings in the same place during periods of fever-pitched warfare with Democrats, it appeared — for the first time in a long time — the fire in their bellies that drove them to shut down the government and risk federal default, was, for now, no longer evident. These Republicans had just been briefed on a new, bipartisan budget blueprint that would establish long-term federal government spending
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
