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.

Kim Jong-un gets mobbed

Kim Jong-un has taken on his role as North Korea’s Supreme Leader with gusto — even, if reports are to be believed, culling some members of his own family. He expects his people to follow his lead — from haircuts through to behaviour and rarely shows his relaxed side. That is until he gets mobbed. By females. Specifically, hot Korean ladies. Just moments earlier he showed his formal, restrained side by posing alongside members of the Korean People’s Army. Then the admirers came running. We’ve never seen Kimmy’s smile so wide. He bathed in the female attention.

WASHINGTON — According to a new study, commissioned by the federal government, says that biofuels made from the leftovers of harvested corn plants are actually worse than gasoline -- when it comes to global warming in the short term. The research published in the journal Nature Climate Change challenges the Obama administration´s conclusions that biofuels are a much cleaner oil alternative and will help fight climate change. The study is being criticized by the biofuels industry and Obama administration as flawed. Corn residue is one of the most promising ways to make cellulosic biofuels. Biofuels have struggled to reach the volumes

First-time movie producer and mom-to-be Chelsea Clinton has premiered a short film at the Tribeca Film Festival. Clinton is the executive producer of the short “Of Many,” a documentary about the friendship of two religious leaders at New York University. One is rabbi, the other is an imam. Clinton was previously an assistant vice provost at NYU. The 34-minute film made its Tribeca debut Thursday night. The screening was attended by the 34-year-old Clinton and her father, former President Bill Clinton. Chelsea Clinton announced Thursday that she and her husband, Marc Mezvinksy, are expecting their first child this fall.

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 National Archives have been releasing tranches of Clinton documents, previously withheld under the Presidential Records Act, every two weeks this spring.

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."

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a
source of deep rifts in Christian religion

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
