How Michelle Obama is backing fashion
queen ´Ambassador´ Anna Wintour all
the way - to Paris, NOT London (despite
the fact she speaks little French)

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff

Anyone doubting the veracity of Washington rumours that Anna Wintour, the famously icy fashion queen of New York City, will soon become a high-profile American ambassador in Europe should look no further for substantiation than the archives of Vogue magazine. In March 2009, the magazine – ruled by Wintour as her personal fiefdom – devoted its cover and eight glossy pages inside to an interview with the new First Lady Michelle Obama alongside a fabulously glamorous set of photographs shot by legendary portrait photographer Annie Leibovitz. The ‘Michelle Obama Edition’ hit the newsstands with the glowing headline

Incompetence is the hallmark of this administration. If it is something that you can´t do, are not qualified to do, have no ability to do, then please apply because then you qualify. Affirmative action on steroids!

Why not? Moochelle needs a gal pal to go shopping and restaurant hops with on her upcoming monthly clothes horse trips to Paris. The White House chef will have to learn new dishes. Anna will feature new trendy burkas.

So Vogue puts Mooch on the cover, and now Wintour is going to be ambassador to France? Surely, the editor,of People Magazine and In Touch deserve something, they´ve put out an awful lot of fawning Obama articles.

Hate to be a killjoy, but Conde Nast owns Vogue, owns Vanity Fair, just in case you don´t want to support any of these creeps.

The leftist toadies and politically correct group go bonkers over our first black president and will continue to worship at their feet and put Michelle on that pedestal. They say that she is the black Jackie Kennedy, and next she will be our black Joan of Arc, they are all atwitter devising new ways to glorify a very ordinary black woman, who has no special talents. It is amusing to see how far they will go. All of us know that with all of her makeup, special shoots, glam clothes, and coddling, even the most unattractive person would look great. Michelle, you´ve come a long way, baby, from your America hating days. Enjoy it while you can, one day the truth about your husband will come out and you and yours will be shocked.

History´s Grossest Quid Quo Pro.

FTA: When she first appeared on the political stage, Michelle was dismissed as a slightly awkward, intellectual lawyer: an angrier, African-American version of the young Hillary Clinton. But when Vogue was finished with her, Michelle was recreated as a softly elegant global fashion icon and role model: a perfect Jackie to her husband’s JFK for a multi-racial age.

The rest of the article (and the pics of AW with her permanent, supposedly winsome chin-tilted-down pose) is big-time upchuck-time. Sometime watch some video of her striking that pose. Incredible.

But then POSE is what this pair of primitives in the WH are all about.

Maybe the real goal is to encourage Paris to get going on some fundamental fashion change to add slash booty ratings on their clothing.
So for example a size 8 dress becomes a 8/16, a size 10 becomes a 10/20 and so on...

If the first lady we have been waiting for is a tall angry black woman who can´t be happy unless she is on an expensive vacation at the country´s expense, then yes, she is the one.

If I didn´t know her true nature,(mean & angry) I would be able to say honestly that that cover shot actually made her look nice for once. She is dressed for her age and position in life, not as a teen wannabe. I wonder what kind of fight they had to go through to get her to wear that dress.

The first comment after the article says it better than I can, plus it´s all I can do to keep my breakfast down before heading out to church. I´m feeling the need to ask forgiveness for my thoughts about the Obamas.

Question: Did Michelle rub oil all over herself for that picture in the dress that looks like the top is a swimsuit?

Comment after the article:Wintour wants something for all the funding parties she headed. She´s about as qualified to be an ambassador as obama is to be president. With that in mind, anything is possible.

I didn´t know that she left school at 16. She´s a high school drop out! Someone in the article is quoted as saying that appointing her ambassador is like Caligula appointing his horse a senator. I think she should be appointed ambassador to France. Then the French will see that the country has an incompetent president with an incompetent foreign policy.

There was word that Mooch would be the cover again this December. Didn´t happen. Maybe Wintour wasn´t so sure how the election would come out.

Does anyone think Big Moo doesn´t really know that the world laughs at her and particularly when it comes to the fashion icon baloney? Who in the world, and especially the nasty, awful, almost as repulsive as Big Moo Anna Wintour thinks this hog woman has style? It´s suspected that she harvests retread rubber from the sides of highways for her belts and that the oil of choice for her bared bowed-legs is Mazola. This woman is a national embarrassment and seeing at least 10" of thunder thigh in any of her hideous dresses is enough to cause one to lose lunch. She is classless and its showing more every day e.g., as in her upcoming 4 million vacation in Hawaii with her surly daughters, her entire grifter family, and Zippy.

Michelle Obama lags behind
Laura Bush’s poll ratings
Daily Caller, by Neil Munro    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 3/4/2014 5:29:30 AM     Post Reply
First lady Michelle Obama’s poll ratings lag well behind the ratings earned by Laura Bush, according to a new Gallup survey. Obama’s positive rating among adults is only 66 percent, compared to Bush’s 73 percent favorable rating. Barbara Bush, wife of President George H.W. Bush, outscored both, at 77 percent, the poll of adults revealed. Michelle Obama is dragged down by a negative rating from 25 percent of Gallup’s respondents. But Michelle Obama still scores higher that Hillary Clinton, whose positive ratings were at 56 percent. Clinton’s negative ratings were 37 percent. The poll ratings are shaped by the first lady’s activities. Generally, the public

Ukraine´s outdated and underfunded

Ukraine´s underfunded and outdated military, with Cold War-era technology and salaries to match, would be an anemic deterrent if the Russian invasion of Crimea were to widen into a bigger confrontation, according to a 2012 Ukrainian Ministry of Defense report. Obsolete tanks and fighter planes, a miniscule navy and a dwindling army whose approximately 100,000 soldiers earn about half the nation’s average salary all bode poorly for the nation of 45 million what declared its independence from Russia in 1991. “It is absolutely not a combat ready force. It’s sharply underfunded, and they don’t have any real air or surface to air

A sordid account involving illicit sex in uniform will be aired this week in an austere courtroom at Fort Bragg, N.C., and the results could tip the scales in a high-stakes debate in Congress over the future of the military justice system. The defendant, Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair, is accused of carrying on a long affair with a junior officer and sexually assaulting her on two occasions, among other crimes. He is only the third Army general to face court-martial in more than a half-century. But after two years of investigation and preparation, the prosecution is in disarray. The Army’s lead

Emails obtained by Fox News continue to shed light on the ongoing dispute between congressional lawmakers and former IRS official Lois Lerner over her long-sought testimony on the IRS targeting scandal. The release of the emails follows a bizarre public back-and-forth on Sunday that started when committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., told “Fox News Sunday,” that Lerner, a central figure in the targeting scandal, would testify, after pleading the Fifth Amendment last year. Within minutes, Lerner lawyer William Taylor said he was still under the assumption his client would assert her constitutional right not to testify – a statement followed by

Patrick Snay, 69 -- the former head of Guillver Preparatory School -- filed an age discrimination complaint when his 2010-11 contract wasn´t renewed. In November 2011, the school and Snay came to an agreement in which Snay would be paid $10,000 in back pay, and an $80,000 settlement. Gulliver Schools also agreed to cut Snay´s attorneys a check for $60,000. But before the ink could dry on the deal, Snay´s daughter took to Facebook, boasting,

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama and his Russian counterpart, President Vladimir Putin, strongly disagree over what´s at stake in the Ukraine crisis. Those differing views were made clear in a 90-minute phone call and could make it difficult to find a resolution to the crisis in Ukraine. In the Saturday call, Obama called Russia´s actions "a clear violation of Ukrainian sovereignty" and called for Russia to pull its forces back to bases in Ukraine´s Crimean region and de-escalate tensions. President Putin responded that the turmoil in Ukraine posed real threats to the life and health of Russian citizens living in

President Obama’s foreign
policy is based on fantasy

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

She lit up the silver screen during her heyday, but Kim Novak left the Oscars audience in shock as she took to the stage on Sunday.

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.

Republican lawmakers have failed to pin down senior military officials on how they characterized the Benghazi attack to the White House and President Obama on Sept. 11, 2012, the day terrorists stormed a U.S. diplomatic mission and bombed a CIA annex in the eastern Libyan city. The issue gained importance in January when Republican members of the House Committee on Armed Services released former top-secret transcripts of senior officials testifying on the military’s response to Benghazi. For the first time, it was disclosed that retired ArmyGen. Carter Ham, then head of U.S. Africa Command, testified that he had told Defense Secretary Leon
