    She hasn't forgotten...she just repeats what she's told to say.

    Michele and Barack are indeed a well matched pair (not a compliment).

    No, I didn't forget that. I do remember the IRS audit that found that she and Ronny never paid taxes on the gifts they received from donors while he was president. They had to pay $3 million in back taxes.


    There is no more evidence of Michelle Obama being all uppity than there is of Nancy Reagan feeling the same way. It's all subjective and based on how one feels about the president/husband's politics. She wants children to eat healthy diets and get more exercise, Nancy wanted them to say no to drugs. Both care about american kids having healthy lives.

    You could even make a case that the War on Drugs policies implemented by the Reagan administration have eroded our constitutional freedoms much faster than policies that encourage restaurants to offer healthy alternatives to french fries have done, or even have the potential to do. "Just Say No" was the propaganda wing of the WOD. Now, pretty much every employed adult has to submit urine samples to their employer on a regular basis, and a good number of high school students are required to do the same. The government can confiscate money and property from someone who is accused of drug crimes before that person is even convicted of a crime, thus subverting due process. The government pays television networks to incorporate anti-drug messages in their shows, an unnecessary spenditure at the least and a crossover into censorship at the most.

    She sang "Second Hand Rose" at the Gridiron Dinner in 1982, in response to the criticism on her fashion sense and buying all new china for the White House (privately funded, by the way).

    You do realize that every new president gets their own set of China, right? BTW, your hero Bill Clinton's China was stolen by his staff. This probably happened with the band of hicks Carter routinely had in the WH.

    This is not true. The full set of Reagan china was the first purchase of an entire service since the Johnson administration. Before that, the last entire service was from the Truman administration. You can get a full list of services and when they were added to/augmented from Wikipedia.
    Easily the most fabulous set of China was introduced during the Hayes administration. Lucy Hayes chose "flora and fauna of America" as the theme, and Limoges designed a gorgeous service. Here's a serving platter:



    An oyster plate (obviously):



    Two dinner plates:



    Limoges did a fantastic job. (My own formal china is Limoges [Haviland], so I'm prejudiced). The Wilson china was the first to be produced in America, and since then Lenox, Castleton, or Pickard have produced all of the White House services.
