Michelle Obama looks chic
in Jason Wu... AGAIN! First
Lady chooses sparkling
crimson cocktail dress by
trusted designer for President
Obama´s State of the Union speech

Daily Mail (UK), by Deborah Arthurs

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/13/2013 10:55:30 AM

They don´t call her the First Lady of Fashion for nothing. And last night, As Michelle Obama played host to honoured guests at her husband´s State of the Union address, she proved that she can do glamorous power dressing with the best of them. Wearing a shimmering crimson and black cocktail dress by Jason Wu, she looked every inch the perfect politician´s consort. Wu of course is one of Michelle´s most trusted designers. He not only designed the white gown she wore for her debut as First Lady at the President´s inaugural ball back in 2009,

Sparkles and no sleeves at the SOTU? Inappropriate. She dresses like a child. Odd for such big woman.

I used to think she looked liked James Brown in a drag queen dress.
However after seeing her with the wig on several times she now reminds me of an out cast from the Huli tribe from Papua New Guinea known for their ´wig hats´. Google ´Huli tribe´ for more info.

I feel sorry for the woman, I really do. Wookie face, basketball player arms, no decolletage to speak of, and her hips...well, bless her heart.

But its obvious the trailer park sensibility has never left this woman. I cant decide if the fashion designers are scared to tell her that her choices just. don´t. work. Or if they are incapable of finding a style that fits her...or if they are merely incompetent. Its a hard call.

As for myself, I´m taking a Downton Abbey perspective...

Doesn´t she know that business attire is appropriate for this event? It is not a cocktail party.
She doesn´t have a clue. AND she should dump that wig.

I always wonder who writes this stuff. Michelle has no sense of fashion whatsoever. That wig is hideous and out of place; her cocktail dress was inappropriate at the state of the union, and bare arms are horrid and shows she has no class at all. I am so embarrassed to say she is our first lady. Michelle has no class and no common sense.

It is obvious that Mrs. O has no sense of decorum. A cocktail dress is inappropriate attire for the SOTU. What next, a ball gown? I am sure that no one tells this woman anything negative including her husband. She is more in the vein of The Queen of Hearts than she is the First Lady. Off with their heads!

Mrs Obama with her bare arms is either ahead of all the other ladies present in the room fashion wise, or was out of place fashion wise. We will have wait until the gay fashion designers weigh in to find out.

It may have been the camera angle, but it sure looked like her wig was a little out of calibration with the front of her head. Then again maybe that´s the way it was designed to be.

Does all that really matter compared to what President Obama said he wants to do to America?

Let me be clear: are we paying for all of the stuff that makes her "stunning?" I am also stunned, but not in a polite and adoring way. I do not want to be told that she is keeping all of those ugly outfits, and the accessories , and jewelry, and shoes...and is more concerned with those things than just sitting down somewhere and being quietly seen from a distance. She is making a mockery of "First Lady" at least as I see that honor.

I´d wager her "stylist" fried her hair or skin and that´s why the banged wig. But those hair relaxer products are like crack. Addictive & dangerous. Her clothing style seems immature and misguided. Her facial expressions are very telling but no doubt she is still in grooming classes from Hollywood syncophants.

She´s a chic? Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha to the nth power. This middle line backer looked like an orangutan in a dress. We should all be thankful that she wasn´t sitting in a place where we had to look big oiled llegs she´s so fond of crossing any chance she gets. The woman is trailer trash and has the manners of a hog. But, I do thank her Just seeing her standing there with that lower lip pulled up enough to cover her six inch teeth gave me the last reason I needed to switch to watching Westminster and dogs one can enjoy watching.

Her dresses are like tents--small at the top (because she is flat-chested) to make it look like she is thin and flared out at the bottom to cover her hips and thighs. All we see are her sinewy arms and the bottom part of her legs. It is really a remarkable feat of camouflage.

Those who could not read the article: please do. The Mail is notorious for its tongue-in-cheek coverage of Michelle´s fashion "sense."

For example:

Putting on the glitz: The otherwise simple tweed dress was shot through with sparkling thread

The key to the TIC is the emphatic "otherwise." A "simple tweed dress" (with at least three-quarter sleeves, preferably a jacket) would have been entirely appropriate for the occasion. A woman with class would immediately wrinkle her nose and gasp, "Ruining a good tweed with sparkling thread??? Ugh! Woman´s only taste is when she´s stuffing her face."

TAMPA — The Florida State Fair, reeling from a rampage involving hundreds of youths on opening night, announced late Tuesday it is taking steps to curb such outbreaks by requiring that any minor presenting a free entry ticket after 7 p.m. be accompanied by an adult. The move had been discussed by the Hillsborough County Sheriff´s Department this week as one possible response to a night of violence Friday that resulted in a dozen arrests and 99 ejections for disorderly conduct, including a 14-year-old boy who later was killed when he was hit by a car crossing Interstate 4 nearby.

Ted Cruz will demand that the Senate come up with 60 votes to raise the debt ceiling, but indicated he won’t delay the vote as D.C. awaits a snowstorm. The GOP freshman senator from Texas told reporters Tuesday afternoon that he will not allow a clean bill to lift the debt ceiling through the Senate with a bare majority. “Under no circumstances will I agree to the Senate’s raising the debt ceiling with just 50 votes. I intend to object and force a 60-vote threshold,” Cruz said. Given that the entire 55-member Democratic caucus is expected to support the clean

Previously she donned one-shouldered pieces from Peter Soronen and Doo-Ri Chung, and a strapless gown by Naeem Khan for the administration’s first official state dinner in 2009 for India. The dress includes a black hand-sewn beaded embroidery applique scallop-edged top over a liberty blue silk faille corset, according to a statement from the designer.

After Special Report is over, I’ll often turn over to NBC to see what’s going on with the MSM bastion. I rarely find the news all that newsy, but I find it useful to see how they’re covering things. Last night was pretty classic. To their credit, they opened with a serious piece on the horrors of the Syrian civil war, but Brian Williams was almost apologetic for covering it at the top of the show, calling it “a situation that demands our attention.”(I suspect the suits wanted all Olympics.) Later, at about twelve minutes into the show, Williams spent

The House passed a clean debt ceiling suspension on Tuesday — a vote that alienated dozens of Republicans and led some conservative groups to call for the removal of Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio). The bill was approved in a 221-201 vote, largely on the back of Democrats. Only 28 Republicans voted for it, while 199 voted no. Every Democrat except two voted for the clean debt bill backed by the White House and Democratic leaders in the House and Senate. The two defections were Rep.

It´s no surprise that Barack Obama´s authoritarian streak is revealing itself at last. It was always there; clearly apparent in his rhetoric (e.g., his envy of Chinese president Xi Jin-ping´s powers), his abuse of executive orders, his threats against Congress, his sultan with fly-whisk attitudes toward his opposition, and even his vacations, which reek more of third-world trash gamboling on the Riviera than any American leader (George W. Bush settled his mind by clearing brush in Texas, Reagan at his ranch in Santa Barbara. Obama unfortunately finds the brush already cleared in Martha´s Vineyard and Hawaii.)

Instead of treating Hillary Clinton as a possible presidential candidate who must be vetted, NBC framed her as a sympathetic victim of a "brutal" and personal attack on Monday´s Nightly News.Andrea Mitchell bemoaned that "inflammatory excerpts" of "once-private papers" of Clinton´s close friend were published an "anti-Clinton website" -- the conservative news site Washington Free Beacon. Would NBC say that an "anti-Cruz" website attacked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) if he faced a similar report? [Video below the break. Audio here.]Anchor Brian Williams teased the report as an opportunity for an ugly GOP ambush: "Still ahead for us tonight, the private lives

BAGHDAD — A group of Sunni militants attending a suicide bombing training class at a camp north of Baghdad were killed on Monday when their commander unwittingly conducted a demonstration with a belt that was packed with explosives, army and police officials said. The militants belonged to a group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, which is fighting the Shiite-dominated army of the Iraqi government, mostly in Anbar Province. But they are also linked to bomb attacks elsewhere and other fighting that has thrown Iraq deeper into sectarian violence.

Every year, prior to Valentine’s Day, the Vermont Teddy Bear Co. runs ads advising guys that the most romantic thing in the world – the best gift a love-struck guy can give his girl – is a teddy bear.

But, it’s the way these ads are put together that cause the creep-out: the girl

Powerful winds in the Pacific Ocean, which have driven surface heat deep underwater, could be the reason behind the current ‘pause’ in global warming. This is according to a joint Australian and U.S. study which has looked at why there has been a slowdown in the planet’s global average surface temperature over the past decade. Their research shows that trade winds in central and eastern parts of the Pacific have caused warm surface water to sink to the ocean´s depths, reducing the amount of heat in the atmosphere. Last year, scientists on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said the pace of

From its inception, the strategy behind the Obama administration’s implementation of ObamaCare has been simple: to frontload the benefits and postpone the pain and costs of this massive government intrusion into the private sector for as long as possible. This deceitful approach enabled President Obama run for reelection in 2012 on the spurious promise of extending insurance coverage to the poor and those with pre-existing conditions without being held accountable for the problems with the law that would only become apparent in his second term. Over the course of the last year, as the president’s signature accomplishment debuted with a
