Michelle Obama released her official White House portrait today, and it´s hard to miss the photo´s most prominent feature: her bangs. The 49-year-old fashion-forward first lady debuted the bangs in January, sending the Internet into a frenzy. She recently told TV host Rachael Ray that the bangs were her version of a "mid-life crisis." The new portrait, taken in the Green Room of the White House on Feb. 12, shows
Comments: Holy Mackerel Andy....last time I saw a mouth like that, it had a hook in it.. But seriously, given what the photographer had to work with, it ain´t that bad...
OK. The bangs make her nose look wider and blobbier and her face doughier. She can no longer let a sweep of hair cover that her "Little (right) Eye". And she generally looks older and more common. If that is possible.
And she´s now stuck with all those bange wigs of different lengths. Just when the closet floor was so cluttered...
I´m told that Jerry Springer has a recurring theme show where black tranny hookers come on, wearing the same kind of wig Michelle has chosen to wear. And she is built like many of those Jerry Springer tranny guests. geez.
Maybe it´s just me, but doesn´t this whole dog and pony show bother anyone else? I don´t care how flattering her bangs or sleeves are, or how the photgrapher did a reasonably good job given the subject. The country is going through the toughest economic times since the Great Depression; we are being invaded by foreign nationals who are taking our jobs, medical care, educational opportunities and promise to skew our elections; our national defense is being gutted; we no longer have a reasonable expectation of representation at the federal level; we have certifiably liars, loons and buffoons at our highest cabinet levels; we have a president who is either complicit or indifferent to our suffering and in the midst of all of this insanity, Michelle unveils her self-portrait after flying back from her annual, taxpayer funded, ski trip to Aspen and her husband´s taxpayer funded $1M plus three day golf weekend. I wish I could say that this is a Marie Antoinette level of disengagement and disinterest, but even poor Marie cared more. This is more like Nero.
I do not like this woman, not one bit. But this picture of her is good, as far as pictures go. If she would just dress and look this way when she is on official White House business, she would be MUCH less of an embarrassment. A quiet dress with no wide and high belt, pearls (not a chunky African necklace), a nice hair style and an actual smile on her face. Even her nails are toned down and nicely done, with no loud jewelry. This picture doesn´t make me cringe.
I just love reading all the oozing up to Moo trash being written when the truth is that the woman is repulsive and a single look at her is enough to put any need to find a word beyond "ugly" to describe her. Whe really does her in is that she´s ugly from the inside out and it shows. I don´t care which sleaze designer she favors, they can hang anything on her and it won´tl change mean, nasty, cheap, and classless. In a woman like this pig, it´s inbred.
I´d rather read her answers to why she no longer has a law degree and about 50 more questions that were inspired after reading her Princeton thesis in which she makes it crystal clear that her hatred for "whitey" is real.
Man it´s a good thing that I ate a few hours ago. I am sick to death of people who fawn all over this ugly woman as if she were the next Jackie O. Say what you want about JKO but at least she was beautiful. The Wookie on the other hand is NOT a good looking woman. If beauty is in the eye of the beholder then I´m bllind as a bat and can´t hold up much.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a last minute decision not to participate in a memorial service for the late South African President Nelson Mandela, despite having notified the South African government that he would attend the event. The decision was made in light of the high transportation costs resulting from the short notice of the trip and the security required for the prime minister in Johannesburg. The Prime Minister’s Office found that the trip would have cost roughly 7 million shekels ($2.4 million) – 2.8 million shekels for chartering a private El Al plane and a further 3.2 million shekels for
A waitress, who last month said she was left an anti-gay note instead of a tip, will no longer have a job at the Bridgewater establishment where she served, the restaurant announced Saturday night. Gallop Asian Bistro, in Bridgewater, wrote on its Facebook page Saturday night that the results of its investigation into the allegations made by Dayna Morales — and those made against her — were inconclusive, and has come to an agreement with the waitress that she would no longer work at the restaurant. "The Gallop Asian Bistro has taken seriously the allegations made by Ms. Dayna Morales, and those
WASHINGTON -- The Affordable Care Act is a "war on women" that denies mothers the ability to make choices for their families, U.S. Rep. Renee Ellmers, R-N.C., said Saturday. The ACA, beginning Aug. 12, 2012, requires insurance plans to provide new preventive benefits including contraceptives, breastfeeding supplies and gestational diabetes screening for pregnant women, prenatal care, routine breast and pelvic exams and pap tests used to detect potentially precancerous and cancerous processes in the cervix. Delivering the GOP´s weekly address, Ellmers called on President Barack Obama to get rid of the law or at least delay its implementation. Ellmers, a nurse and mother
In South Carolina, the American flag that flies over the Pickens County Sheriff´s Office will be raised high over the weekend despite an order by President Obama that flags be lowered to half-staff to honor the death of iconic South African leader Nelson Mandela. Sheriff Rick Clark told GreenvilleOnline.com that he is ordering the flag be raised on Sunday because the honor of lowering flags to half-staff should be reserved for Americans. "The flag at half-staff is for Americans´ ultimate sacrifice for our country," Clark said. "We should never stray away from that." The flag is currently flying at half-staff in honor of
Mitsubishi is the latest in a long line of automakers to slash prices on an electric car, the unpronounceable, unfortunately named i-MiEV. The model is now the cheapest EV on the market, yet it’s still hard to imagine many drivers excitedly running out to buy one. Overall, American consumers are paying more for cars. The average price paid for a new light vehicle in November was $32,769, up 3% compared to October, and 1.1% year over year, according to Kelley Blue Book. Yet as average prices rise, one segment of the new car market has gotten markedly cheaper. “Electric vehicles had
Nelson Mandela is being remembered across the world (and political spectrum) for his heroic, life-long battle against apartheid and injustice in South Africa. But with all the accolades being thrown around, it’s easy to forget that the U.S., in particular, hasn’t always had such a friendly relationship with Mandela -- and that in fact, as late as 2008, the Nobel Prize winner and former president was still on the U.S. terrorism watch list.(snip)Eventually, of course, the U.S. did pass economic sanctions, which are widely credited for helping topple -- at least in part -- the apartheid regime. Mandela went on
President Barack Obama and his family will spend Christmas in Hawaii again this year, and are expected to stay in the same beachfront Kailua neighborhood where they´ve spent the past five year-end holidays. Hawaii News Now reports the Obamas are expected to arrive around Dec. 20 and stay until Jan. 5. While Obama typically spends a lot of time at the nearby Marine Corps Base Hawaii at Kaneohe Bay, working out in the gym and playing golf, he does tend to venture out to the same local businesses each trip. Among his favorites are Island Snow and Buzz´s Original Steakhouse in Kailua,
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
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
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
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 most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
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
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
