Are you kidding me? Someone wasted 4 minutes of their lives reporting on this? Our country is on a collision course with the fate of Rome and some 90 year old biddy's half wit comment about the first ladies attire warrants press? Let's create a new millionaire with the first person to invent a tool that will help jerk the entire media monsters head out of its collective arse.

If clothes made the man, Bush would have been a great president. Also, why should Obama and his family be obsessing over fashion formalities when most of us can't afford to even buy new socks? Get your priorities straight.

Even Versaci couldn't rescue Bush. I mean, I just cannot believe that our country has been reduced to such trival nonsense. Who cares about Michelle Obama? Or more importantly I suppose, who cares about the decorative fabric in which our countries handbasket to hell is decorated. We need five across the eye's to get peoples focus back on track.

Maxine,

We respect your wishes to maintain hairy armpits. You should respect her wishes to wear what she wants.

Best regards.

I had to actually open this article to make sure I was reading things right and I think my IQ dropped a few points.

Some idiot is opposed to wearing a sleeveless dress?! It isn't like the First Lady was outfitted with a miniskirt and a sports-bra for Chrissakes!

Whats next?! The First Lady can't wear any color other than red, white or blue because it would be inconsistent with the the American flag?

Hilary & Maxine! Ladies!

Instead of talking trailer trash and fundamentalist nonsense, why don't you volunteer to do something productive with your excess free time? Is is NOT the Obamas who are obsessed with dress. They simply dress and look great because they are not old fat White prunes. Get a life & turn that other cheek!

This is like O'Reilly complaining about Obama working without jacket and tie in the oval office. Then the picture of Bush doing same surfaced and O'Reilly shut his hypocritical biased trap. What YOU think is appropriate does NOT matter since YOU are sitting at home wasting time while the President and First Lady are taking the country in a NEW direction... so open your mind instead of your mouth, and grow up.

Sleeves or no sleeves, I'm consistently touched by the genuine warmth she exudes.

What? Don't you think there are way too many other problems to beef about than what the heck Michelle Obama is wearing at what time of year. Oh, don't worry about the economy! Worry about what Michelle is wearing. Please.

If I had to guess, Ms. Elges is over 50 and would still require women to wear pantyhose in 90 degree heat. Your stale ideas are out.

I agree we spend too much time on Michelle Obama's wardrobe choices. At teh same time, I agree that her look was a tad too informal for the occasion. The season is Winter. The occasion is Business. A little more polish is in order. Nancy Pelosi in her green Armani was spot on.
Yeah, but Nancy Pelosi was AT WORK.

This is such a non-reportable event. The country is going to hell in a handbasket driven by Obama, and yet we care what Michelle is wearing? She's no Jackie O, so why do we care? Move on, please.

michelle obama should realize she can not dress like a TRAMP and wear sleeves. It's biblical that a woman should cover her arm pits.

What a pathetic jab by a tabloid-chasing vampire.

I'm sure if Mrs. Obama didn't feel comfortable, she would have made the necessary change post-haste. Really, what wise enough person would really care about this?

Ahhhh, the perfume of a critic's burning flesh.
