They’re Just Arms, Not Breasts!

I don’t get the hoopla over Michelle Obama going sleeveless and showing off her nicely sculpted arms.


Last month, USA Today ran a poll, and guess what it was about? Michelle Obama’s arms! You’d think they’d have a few other news worthy items to write about, but here are the results:

Is it appropriate for Michelle Obama to go sleeveless so often?

40%: Yes, she’s a modern first lady.

11%: No, it seems too informal.

49%: Who cares? It’s her decision.

I think Michelle Obama is quite a fashionable woman, and dresses very tasteful. I think people are so used to  Barbara Bush & Hilary Clinton’s lack of fashion sense, and the fact that they both dressed like retired gym teachers, to appreciate Michelle’s fashion sense. After all, Firt Lady Michelle “Renaissance” Obama always had a great sense of fashion even before occupying the white house, so why should she change?

Every woman has the right to bare their arms in public, if they choose to do so.

Are all bare arms created equal?

Hell no.

Would you rather see the arms below:shortsleeves

…or Michelle’s arms?
Personally, I could careless who chooses to wear short sleeves or not. I know there have been times, when I wouldn’t dare walk out with short sleeves, because of the extra meat jangling & flapping underneath my arms.
Once again, they’re just arms, not breasts!  But then again, I’m sure there’s some person out there with some type of freaky arm fetish, who just might get a little aroused!

    LOl @ the title,it got my attention!
    No matter what she does or says there will always be naysayers, I read this article that spoke about how she should wear stockings,when she is speaking in public because her bare naked legs were not lady like, huh? WHAT? What ever. They are so used to crinkly ole school marm type of first ladies.

      Exactly!! They don’t know fashion sense when they see it. I think Kennedy was the last woman in the White House with any!

    Why you hatin on the big gurl? That aint right. This country is occupied by many chicks with arms like the big gurl. But I digress from the point of this blog. I say, for as long as we had to have to look at George W. Bush’s ungly momma in the White House, we should be able to see Michelle Obama in a bikini if she so choses.

      LMAO @ Bush’s ugly momma!!

    They really don’t care about her arms they just need to keep up a constant barrage of criticism cause she will never be the conventional first lady cause she’s not White. Remember this Condie Rice, Laura Bush and Grandma Barbara Pierce Bush all belong to the same sorority. Condie was at least they Nig! Michelle Obama will never be that. Never!
