Michelle Obama releases
new White House portrait

Star - Ledger (Newark, NJ), by Tom Wright-Piersanti

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 2/20/2013 5:02:37 PM

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

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...

Those "sensible" sleeves the writer noticed cover those menopausal (former) guns. Not so toned any more, they often show the batwing-iness that comes with age.

Oozing toward the big Five-O.

I usually think she looks like a scary linebacker about to eat everyone in her path.
But this picture isn´t that bad.
I still despise her and her husband for lying and cheating and destroying America.

I don´t need to "feel good" about this woman being in the White House because ... I never owned slaves.

Aside from voters "feel good" status, she offers only negatives. And her room-mate is the new version of a Muslim terrorist.

(The collection box for new glasses for #17 is over in the corner.)

Some outrageous folks opine that that new wig (and it is a wig, kids) covers cosmetic surgery scars.

And/or she has been spending too much time lately with Anna Wintour of Vogue - where she is said to be on the March cover. ??? Has anyone seen it in the supermarket and turned it over?

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.

It´s not a bad portrait of Michelle. I still agree with Miss Lucianne that this hairdo is channeling Michelle´s inner Hanoi Jane from the 60´s. And I thought it was ´a strand of pearls´ not ´a set´.

I agree. The right cut for Mooch would have the bangs going down to her chin. Maybe then I could tolerate looking at her.

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.

Clinton White House’s Conspiracy
Theory of Right-Wing Conspiracy Theories
ABC News, by Chris Good    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 4/18/2014 9:02:54 PM     Post Reply
If Bill Clinton’s political camp was known for believing the right wing was out to get him, then this undated memo from his administration codified his team’s suspicions. The memo was released today in the latest, thousands-of-pages-long batch of Clinton White House documents to be posted online by the William J. Clinton Presidential Library & Museum. The National Archives have been releasing tranches of Clinton documents, previously withheld under the Presidential Records Act, every two weeks this spring. Reportedly authored by Chris Lehane, then a young White House aide who would later serve as press secretary for

KUALA LUMPUR - About 100 Malaysian Muslim activists protested on Friday outside the US embassy against the coming visit by President Barack Obama, denouncing him as an enemy of Islam. The demonstration underscored the delicate nature of Obama´s trip to Muslim-majority Malaysia, which will make him the first siting US president to visit in nearly half a century, a period marked by mutual distrust. The protesters marched to the embassy in Kuala Lumpur from a nearby mosque after Friday afternoon prayers, shouting "God is great" and "Obama is the enemy of the Prophet Muhammad." They also bore placards and banners

This is not a joke, but it is funny. It´s also practical. Argentina´s National Institute for Agricultural Technology (INTA) has invented a way to convert cow flatulence into usable energy, and it involves putting a plastic backpack on a cow. In other words, cow fartpacks are here.(snip)Here´s how the fartpacks work: tubes run from the backpack into the cows´ rumen (or biggest digestive tract). They extract about 300 liters of methane a day, which is enough to run a car or a fridge for about 24 hours. Pablo Soranda, INTA press officer, told FastCo.Exist that the project is more about making a point than

Given their druthers, some Kansas high school students and their parents said they would rather keep their graduation day just a family affair instead of expanding the guest list to include first lady Michelle Obama.

Parents attending a school board meeting urged it to reconsider the decision.(snip) "They´ve taken the glory and shine from the children and put on Mrs. Obama. She doesn´t know our kids."

Gov. Terry McAuliffe plans to announce today that he will shrink the time violent felons must wait to seek reinstatement of their voting rights and will remove some offenses from that list. The policy slated to take effect April 21 comes on top of years of work to streamline the process, and aims to make the system easier to understand and to allow more felons to petition the state more quickly. In a series of changes to the state´s restoration of rights process, McAuliffe plans to collapse the application waiting period from five to three years for people convicted of violent felonies

The two bombers who killed and maimed innocent people at the Boston marathon a year ago had come as refugees to America, from conflicts that America and her people did nothing to cause. They had been granted the privileges of a law-abiding democracy, including education, health care and the precious freedoms for which Americans have fought in two world wars. Their situation was incomparably better than it would have been, had they stayed behind in Chechnya. Among the many privileges that they enjoyed religious freedom was by no means the least important. They were able to attend their local mosque, to take part in its services and

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
