I THINK JACKIE KENNEDY O, WOULD BE PROUD OF MICHELLE OBAMA!
I AM!

THANK-YOU VIEW LADIES FOR THE GREAT DAY WITH MICHELLE OBAMA!
I KNOW HER TWO DAUGHTERS WERE VERY PROUD!

Michelle is "BARING/bearing arms for America" in more than the literal sense. And America is the stronger for having her (and barack) as our first Woman and Man. Hallelujah - and screw ya to the envious, greedy, obese and flabby critics.

Men love to see a woman with nice arms. It's an indication that she is in tune with wellness.Michelle is indicative of a new wave of women who have a strong sense of self and choose to show it. Good for them and good for Michelle O.

I can't imagine why so many people use valuable
time,ink and space to comment and complain about
something they have absolutely no control of.
When a full page column is written about nothing
except what another well known writer had to say about the Mrs. O's arm... borders the line silliness,without purpose and definitely without
merit. If Michelle Obama desires and uses the creative suggestions of a bunch of designers
who probably would not personally wear their own creations in public, then so be it. At some point in time, she will once again follow her personal trend of dressing. We all remember how ridiculous Jennifer Hudson looked at the Grammys when she allowed Leon Talley of Vogue to dress her. I thought she was going to fly off the stage in that cape that was inappropriate for a young woman starting her career.

To all you haters, spend some at the gym to get your arms like too look like our first lady. Don't worry you will not get the chance the even touch them.

We hear so much about being over weight in this country compared to the rest of the world. So when I look at our first lady she encourage me and hopefully others to get up off the sofa and go walking. THANK YOU FIRST LADY OBAMA !!!!
