What Year Is This? 1912?

It’s freezing in Washington, D.C., in February.
But despite the chill, First Lady Michelle Obama is still exercising her constitutional fashion right to bare arms.
The first lady is becoming known for her casual sleeveless styles and impressive muscular arms, which we’ve glimpsed along the campaign trail and even on the cover of Vogue.
And she was bare-armed again last night when President Obama was addressing Congress for the first time.
“Oh my God,” Cindi Leive, Glamour editor, e-mailed the New York Times last night. “The First Lady has bare arms in Congress, in February, at night!”
Obama’s super-sculpted arms are reportedly well-earned. She started working out with a personal trainer a few years ago.
In recent years, she’s kept up her exercise regimen a few times a week — cardio and lifting weights, or doing Saturday training sessions with the same trainer who kept her husband in shape on the campaign trail.
Now her strong arms getting international attention as they slowly come to symbolize the inner strength of Americans, particularly American women.
Either that or Michelle is just a big fat Madonna copy cat. What do you think of Michelle Obama’s bare arms? Is it proper or disrespectful? Is it admirable or shameless? (La Times)

All of these events were indoors so it is most likely she had a coat on. So, if she was wearing a long sleeve blouse in the summer time would that be considered inappropriate? It is not as if the First Lady is wearing a plunging neckline or a short tight skirt or looks disrespectful in any way so why all the hoopla? Stop being so angry people. We haven't had a First Lady that could rock her biceps since....ever? Imagine Barbara Bush rocking a halter top. Got the vision? Now suck on that for a while and embrace the tone.
Oh and the whole "they come to symbolize inner strength of Americans? Who is the journalist that wrote that pile of dog shit? It's like in Forrest Gump when everyone is asking him "why are you running?" "Are you running for World Peace?" "Are you running for Women's Rights?"
"I just felt like running."
