Looking every bit as poised and elegant as her mother, the long-limbed first daughter has taken the awkward out of adolescence with ease. In the weeks since election night, the emerging styles of the Obama daughters, and especially Malia, has taken center stage - the 14-year-old blossoming from the President´s wide-eyed ´baby´ into a self-assured young woman who has inherited her mother´s confidence, bold fashion sense and looks. Wearing a shiny blue full skirt from ASOS with a neon pink Zara belt, and J. Crew flats, Malia proved she has inherited her mother´s classic but bold sensibility
For those of you out there who think it is wrong to attack some young teen because the White House, probably at the instructions of Mama 0bama, put Malia in our face by claiming both have the real style sense that we should follow, you´re wrong. I have no problem with family pics and portraits, but saying she is a role model to young girls because of her Father´s job is way over the top.
No attack. Just saying Madam Queen is a Fashion Victim who most often wears the wrong clothes for the occasion, ill-fitting (including too tight), and garish. The first Nickolodeon first lady is stuck in her teens. Maybe Malia will end up teaching mamma to dress?
I won´t pick on the girl and I wish her well, but for "staff" to insist that she inherited her remarkable sense of style to make her America´s next style icon makes me wonder if we´re talking about the same president´s wife. Surely they jest! Somewhere in the article there´s bound to be a hidden happy face or a "NOT" or "JUST TEASING TO SEE IF READERS ARE PAYING ATTENTION." There are way too many actual photos of the current First Lady floating around to refute the claim that she´s a fashion icon, poised and elegant. But then, remembering how many Americans voted for her husband in the recent election, it makes me wonder if a large segment of the population has any sense themselves, fashion or otherwise.
We only have to put up with this for another 4 years 2 months. Unless Mrs. & Mrs. Obamanation figure out how to stay in the White House another four years so we can watch Sasha blossom and spend our tax dollars.
I protest - pics of both the hag, the linebacker and child - all on the same page. lol I agree with above poster, our Pubbies are much better looking and behave very well in public. No pouts, frowns or noses in the air.
She definitely has Barack Obama´s body. As to her looks, I think the media judges women on looks too much. When I say media, I include women in the media who harp on and on about women´s looks. I never hear men harping on and on about other men´s looks unless they´re some batty queen.
At the end of the day, what you see with women in public is basically something that has layers of foundation, tons of mascara and rivers of lipstick. Where did au naturel go?
I´m sure glad that my food from yesterday has finally digested because I feel like I´m going to hurl. Not only is the Odummer loving press slobbering all over the First Wookie with their stupid stories about her looks, fashion sense and other drivel but now they are shoving the older of the two ewoks on us. From the looks of the pics the Malaria is certainly taking after the Klingon in every way and trust me folks that is NOT a good thing. And just a note for you people who think I´m being too harsh all I have to say is this. Everytime the media sees fit to shove the two Odumbo urchins in my face I will show them the same difference that they showed the Bush twins and the Palin kids. Have a nice day.
“I think I just became the first president to ever publicly mention Area 51,” President Barack Obama joked at Sunday night’s Kennedy Center Honors event at The White House. The line got a big laugh from the audience in attendance, but he may have been telling the truth. This year’s honorees included Carlos Santana, Herbie Hancock, and Billy Joel. But it was during his remarks about actress Shirley MacLaine, who wrote about her own UFO sightings in her memoir Sage-ing While Age-ing that the president brought up the top secret military base in southern Nevada. “Now, when you first become
WASHINGTON- For months, the talk was all about computer code. About response times. About glitches and bugs. People who didn´t know a URL from an http were blithely expounding on software snags and web design, thanks to the clunky launch of healthcare.gov, the insurance marketplace for the government´s big health care overhaul. With the website improving and tech chatter settling down, the conversation about the Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare," is turning in other directions. (Snip) Or an agenda? The debate over President Barack Obama´s health care law has gradually morphed into a broader discussion about
George Zimmerman´s girlfriend is asking a Seminole County court to lift a no-contact provision against Zimmerman so the couple can "talk and be together," according to a court document obtained by CNN on Monday. Zimmerman was arrested on November 18 at his girlfriend Samantha Scheibe´s Apopka, Florida, home after the two had a heated fight. According to a police report about the incident, Scheibe said that after an argument, Zimmerman broke a table with a shotgun and then pointed it at her "for a minute." Zimmerman is charged with aggravated assault and misdemeanor counts of domestic violence
She wakes to the sound of breathing. The smaller children lie tangled beside her, their chests rising and falling under winter coats and wool blankets. A few feet away, their mother and father sleep near the mop bucket they use as a toilet. Two other children share a mattress by the rotting wall where the mice live, opposite the baby, whose crib is warmed by a hair dryer perched on a milk crate. Slipping out from her covers, the oldest girl sits at the window. On mornings like this, she can see all the way across Brooklyn to the Empire
On Sunday´s NBC Meet the Press, host David Gregory used the death of former South African President Nelson Mandela to lecture American politicians: "Mandela refused to be consumed by hatred and insisted on working toward a common purpose with his political foes. That, seems to me, is what is missing from this era of argument in Washington." [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump] However, Gregory portrayed President Obama as the victim of such polarization, rather than one of its instigators: "The election of our 44th president was similarly an example of how countries can overcome
All three networks on Monday morning highlighted the appearance of the Obamas at the Kennedy Center Honors, but only ABC fawned over "fashion win" of First Lady. Lara Spencer enthused that " one of the stars of the show was Michelle Obama." An excited Spencer explained that Mrs. Obama looked "absolutely ravishing in a flowing teal gown as she accompanied President Obama." The co-host declared, "Another big fashion win for the First Lady. CBS This Morning offered a full report on the various performers who were honored, but co-anchor Charlie Rose avoided ABC´s superlatives.
BANGUI, Central African Republic — Dozens of young men stood waiting for storm clouds to pass, as wind stirred up swirls of red dust on the largely deserted street in Central African Republic’s capital. Through the drizzle, they spotted a man in a flowing white robe traditionally worn by Muslims, hand-in-hand with his adolescent son. The style of dress was enough to confirm that this was their enemy. Hungry for revenge, the crowd descended upon the pair. The man’s terrified son broke away, and fled on foot, abandoning his father as the knife-wielding mob clutched the middle-aged man. Muslim rebels
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
