    I don't see any real gaffe in the Obama present: new technology with
    pics and moving images of your host's, The Queen, visit to your country
    is a form of flattery.

    I'm more annoyed with Michelle Obama's apparent aversion to sleeves.
    She wore, yet again, a sleeveless thingy to the official dinner.
    I knew somebody would mention Michelle being sleeveless.

    Give me a break. After the last decade of that complete retard in office and the entire planet laughing at you, you're complaining about Obama?

    Get fucking real.
    Grim I assume you are smart enought to realize that just because I bash Obama for his stupid shit doesn't mean if this were a Bush thread I would not have done the same thing-I never said I liked Bush either-why do people always get so one sided here?

    It just seems dumb to say "omg this is the most embarrassing thing" when, in comparison, this is pretty much brilliant.

    Hell, Obama flinging dog shit at the queen would still be less embarrassing.

    To you he isn't embarrassing-to me he is-again, to each their own I'm not losing sleep over what someone who doesn't know me says about my opinions over the internet...

    If I had arms like Michelle I'd go sleeveless too. She's making the most of her good points. She just needs to put a little more thought into what's happening from the waist down.

    That outfit is VERY Jackie O - the 60s vibe, the bow, the pearls, the hair... I hope Michelle isn't going to allow herself to get sucked into the "fashion icon" thing but I fear it's too late.

    and?
    sleeveless is entirely appropriate for evening attire, no matter how formal the event.
    check out pics of european royals (that's about as stuffy as it gets, and they stick to protocol), and many of the women are in sleeveless gowns, even strapless.

    I don't get the obsession with her arms. People go sleeveless all the time here in California. She has great arms so why not. She's not wearing a tank top, or halter top. She looks wonderful, always does. the queen really liked her also.
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    So the queen was playing a little grab-ass with Michelle?
