WASHINGTON — Michelle Obama says she won’t wear shorts on Air Force One again because the one time she did, it created “a huge stink.”(snip)Mrs. Obama was asked about her biggest fashion regret. She said she’s always happy with her outfits but that, quote, “sometimes I forget I’m the first lady and I’m running around in shorts.” She recalled her family’s first White House vacation, to the Grand Canyon in August 2009. Mrs. Obama said her wearing shorts getting off the plane “created a huge stink because people were like, ‘she’s wearing shorts getting off of Air Force One.’” She said her thought

It wasn´t shorts so much as it was SHORT shorts on a more than ample derrier with the obvious disdain of proper decorum.
But then, you can´t make a silk purse out of a sows ear unless you start with a silk sow.

Again, that sense of entitlement syndrome.

That plane belongs to the people of the USA. It doesn´t take a genius (or an adviser with an IQ above 50)to know that a certain level of decorum is mandated when you represent all of America in your travels.

Her shorts episode just shows her (and his) contempt and disgust for this country.

My recollection of first ladies is one of poise, dignity and an interest in making a worthwhile social contribution wherever possible. Two exceptions are Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton. Nothing but devious, self absorbed low life bottom feeders.

You are on Air Force One (something you were not brought up with) taking your first family vacation and you forgot you were wearing shorts? That doesn´t pass the smell test Mooche. You and Obie The Won must really think we are stupid.

Actually, the comments are not meant to be helpful. Michelle has no common sense, no class, and many of us are very tired of all her expensive, lavish and luxurious vacations the the taxpayer has to cover. Michelle feels entitled, and she should have more sense about what to wear and how to act when she is first lady. In December, the 0bamas will once again go to Hawaii on another multi-million dollar vacation, and they feel they are so deserving.

Give me a break - her advisers didn´t let her know that she is under a microscope every day no matter where she is? I think she didn´t really care - she probably thought that because she and Barry were on vacation that the MSM would go on hiatus, too. It was giving American expectations for a First Lady the middle finger, IMHO. She should have looked through a picture book about Princess Diana. When Diana was in a relaxed situation, she still dressed with dignity and appropriateness.

Sure, it would be really difficult to forget you are first lady since you woke up in the White House and rode in a limo to Air Force One. s/o Her sense of entitlement, arrogance and "in your face" bad attitude infuriate me. She is unlike any first lady ever to reside in the peoples´ House. The rest of them had the grace, dignity and appreciation for all they were afforded. They knew when they husbands were elected that they would represent our beloved country 24/7. Jackie Kennedy may have had her faults, but she would be shocked and appalled by the low class behavior from this hateful woman. She went on vacation too and she never looked like a slovenly slob like Mooch. Mooch really doesn´t care about anyone but herself and how much she can take while she is there. She and her disgusting husband make a perfect pair.

Her shorts outfit (I use that word loosely) looked as though she had slept in it for a week and/or dumped it into the laundry bag and had to pull it out for this trip. Which trip, BTW, was said to be some kind of official trip to the Grand Canyon and another place (which probably justified the use of Taxpayer One for transort).

You can take the girl out of the ghetto but you can´t take the ghetto....

PS. She was indeed braless though her unboobs don´t require much.

PS 2. Dontcha love her, like, use of "stink" to describe the public reaction? Princeton-Harvard edyookashun.

Much later she sashayed down the street in Marbella dressed to the nines and visited the Queen of Spain for lunch on Majorca dressed like she should be going in the servants´ entrance. Probably thought that the Queen was on vacation there so dress code was casual. Oy.

So the only reason she never did it again was that it caused a "stink". Charming. How about skipping this remark entirely. She should never have worn them because they were inappropriate for Air Force One. And for the president´s wife for any public appearance.

What a crock. She not only knows better, she was deliberately giving the nation her middle finger. Same way she´d explain putting her elbows on the table and sucking her fingers at a state dinner is another oversight, or sitting on elevated stages all around the world with her hefty thighs crossed, or hanging a Mao Tse Tung ornament on a White House Christmas tree, and so on. This woman is a crude and classless boor—a skunk at a lawn party. The oxymoron in first lady is "lady." Laura Bush is a lady, so was Margaret Thatcher.

Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

An autopsy on Peaches Geldof was inconclusive and toxicology tests will be conducted in an attempt to determine what killed the 25-year-old celebrity, police said Wednesday. Geldof was pronounced dead by paramedics at her home in southeast England on Monday. Kent Police said a post-mortem examination had not revealed the cause and a toxicology report could take several weeks. Geldof, the daughter of Irish musician Bob Geldof and the late TV presenter Paula Yates, had worked as a model, writer and television show host. She grew up in the glare of Britain´s press, which reveled in the late-night antics of her teenage years, and

The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression. (With all respect to Paul Krugman, the truth is more complicated, but that’s not within the scope of this article.)The president’s view of spending, deficits and debt is not merely Keynesian theory run amok. Its origins and objectives are far more terrifying. Where the traditional Democratic playbook for economic downturns was provided

WASHINGTON — About the only thing former President Ronald Reagan doesn´t have named after him is a mountain, not one recognized by the federal government anyway.(snip)Rep. Jared Huffman, D-Calif., said he thought DeFazio´s amendment was "terrific" but wanted to take it a step further and name the planet after Reagan. "We may want to consider going big with this Reagan-naming enthusiasm," Huffman said. "I´m beginning to see some possibilities in this." Huffman said his reasoning was that if the planet were named after Reagan, then Republicans might be more concerned with taking up legislation dealing with global warming.

Poll: 62 Percent Of Americans Believe

A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 62 percent of likely voters believe that Republicans will repeal Obamacare, which recently marked its fourth anniversary. Only 23 percent of those polled believe that the health care law has been a success, compared to 46 percent who describe the law as a failure. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, offered a Republican alternative to Obama’s health care overhaul last week, saying states should play a greater role in containing health care costs while

Viscount Simon, 73, a Labour peer who has been a member of the House of Lords for more than 20 years, raised concerns about the “smelly emissions”. His comments came as energy minister Baroness Verma answered questions in the Upper House on how the Government was tackling climate change.(snip)Lady Verma described his question as “so different”.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
