what an amazing couple, don't you think?

Oh Damn, the RW haters are just going to triple their self-hatred, deep inside they know he and she are smarter and more sane than they are.

Poor things.

I don't think it wouls help which is why I'm not going to give it a try, but if you feel more hopeful, then why not?

37. Yes, especially if the alerter explained what MILF means.

Some jurors, decisions are just inexplicable to me and those jurors also often don't explain why they decided the way they did.

40. same here

And then there are people who I expect to think in a way I find offensive. Sorry to say it but they're out there.

I've made only a very few alerts, but I remember once or twice where I drew a " bad" jury.

Seems a bit better these days, though--fewer of the biiiig jerks.

43. Jury results (the acronym wasn't explained, but most of us knew it)

No explanation from the one who voted to leave it, so we don't know if they knew or not.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS:

This is a disgustingly misogynistic thing to say about our First Lady!

JURY RESULTS

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Sun Jan 20, 2013, 07:17 PM, and the Jury voted 5-1 to HIDE IT.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT and said: There is no way to say that with respect, idiot.
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT and said: Over the line. 'Hawt' and 'sexy' would have been best left unsaid by others in the thread, because it encourages things like this.
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT and said: The First Lady exudes class and elegance this poster lacks in every letter he types.

44. I know what that acronym means too. YECCH!

That's why I'd love to know who the "lone dissenter" was. Curious as to whether it's anyone I "know".

I'd make a serious wager on which forum you'd be most likely to find him!







OT-- I love your name, it's hilarious!

45. I love your name too!

And it appears to be completely original (though it has the air of a Don Martin name, which is a Good Thing). I, on the other hand, stole mine from John Cleese, who more or less stole it from Marty Feldman and Barry Took.

5. Beautiful

Two beautifully intelligent and caring people and great looking, too! We are so fortunate as a country that Barack Obama and Michelle had the insight and courage to run for president in '08. That was a brilliant success and just the beginning. I am proud to have them as President and First Lady.

Just when I convince myself that I MIGHT have a chance with our Prez, SHE gets a hot new hairstyle. It makes me sick to my stomach.

And look at how he looks at her! Disgusting.

I won't just be IGNORED, Mr. President!

Blepharoplasty it's called. Commonly known as an eye job.

And you go, girl! She's showing some cleavage with an amazing necklace. Wish I could wear a dress like that, but I don't have the arms.

K&R

....That, my dear, is beautiful!!! I wonder how many wardrobe changes Michelle has gone through today? She definitely looks 10 years younger in this photo with that haircut. When I seen the clip of PO and Michelle talking to parents/staff/children yesterday at that school they did their National Day of Service, it looked like Michelle has also lost weight! May have been just what she had on.
Yes, they are a beautiful people, inside and out. A more perfect Union? Yesssss we are!

20. I'm surprised nobody has noticed the fact that Thomas Jefferson is in the portrait behind them....

....from a slave-holding two-term President to the first African-American two-term President.

We've come a long way over the last 212 years, but we have a long way to go.

And yes, they look very happy! Wonder what he was saying to her?

36. The Right wanted to make Obama "Carter 2.0"...

They were going to blame him for EVERYTHING and take credit for the recovery.

To this DAY people think the famous "gas lines" happened under Carter.

Actually, they happened under Ford.
