First Ladies and Their Fashion Choices



The chattering chipmunks on the right never miss a chance to insult and denigrate the FLOTUS, Michelle Obama.  No matter what she wears, what she eats, or how she smiles.  It's all bitchy talk from them all the time, because, y'know, THOSE PEOPLE are in the White House.


I thought Laura Bush was a gracious First Lady, and no one that I know of attacked her for suggesting people read to their children--no one said she shouldn't tell other parents "what to do." 

And she was never attacked for her looks, her body shape, or her fashion choices on this blog.  I don't know what the problem is with the right wing bloggers who seem to relish making fun of our first African-American First Lady, but they do it with a vengance and full-on spite.  They, of course, are the ones who come off looking like dreary little gossips who have nothing better to do than pick apart someone else instead of looking in the mirror and discovering the wreckage in their souls.

Just for the record, here are some photos from Laura Bush's time as our FLOTUS.  
Her fashion choices are not anything I'd call elegant or stylish, but she was happy wearing them, and that's all that matters.

I rather thought First Lady Laura Bush dressed frumpy or like a school marm. But that was Mrs. Bush, se was comfortable and always presentable. And, as you say she was happy and comfortable in her own skin.

I'm quite sure First lady Michele Obama is comfortable in her own skin and happy as well. And, that black formal gown is elegant and looks super fine on her!


The sad sacks at the sad sack sites simply have nothing better to do with their 1/2 dozen functioning brain cells. Makes me embarrassed to admit I'm a conservative/libertarian.

Hey there owner of progressiveerupts.blogspot.com. Great site. I think you should be little more strict with the comments.

Cool images. They are fun :)

As far as the criticism from some, I can't get excited about it.

Haters gonna hate.

Better to save my energy for things I can influence.

Best to you and yours, Shaw.

I wonder if Bill Clinton will face the same kind of venom about his clothes when he's First Gentleman.....

Who cares what righties with the brains of chipmunks think about Michelle? They're jelous of her natural beauty and grace, something they lack.

I think their fashion complains have more to do with skin color than fashion color.
