Hey, that's not Obama! Prom queen Michelle poses with her first love

She has established herself as the First Lady of fashion and has graced the cover of Vogue.

But long before arriving at the White House Michelle Obama was already putting on the style.

In a shimmering low-cut silk dress slashed to the thigh, the then 18-year-old Michelle Robinson posed with her first boyfriend at the High School Prom.


High school sweethearts: First Lady Michelle Obama with David
Upchurch before the 1984 Whitney M Young High School prom in
Chicago, Illinois

More than a quarter of a century since that night, David Upchurch still has fond memories of escorting Michelle to the dance at the Whitney M Young High School in Chicago, which they both attended....

Her revealing dress choice...was perhapsan indication that she would always stand out.

Over 25 years since that night Upchurch still has fond memories of escorting Michelle to the dance....


Darling of the dance floor: Barack Obama takes Michelle, now his
wife of 17 years, for a spin at one of the 10 balls they
visited on inauguration night


He's still got the moustache:
David Upchurch outside his
home in Colorado Springs.
'Barack Obama's a lucky man,' he said

David said:...junior year, we began dating and continued to date for a year-and-a-half.'

He says he can't even remember if he received a goodnight kiss after the prom.

The romance ended when Michelle went off to Princeton to study sociology.

...David, a customer sales rep, has only fond memories of his time with Michelle....

'...she has always been a wonderful person,' he said....

What, your all going to make fun of her prom picture? Is this what it’s about? I dare ANYONE here to post THEIR OWN prom picture. Ridiculous. This is the part of FR that embarrasses me because I know what you guys look like, so to make fun of anyone else’s looks is grotesque.

She kind of looked like the first Mom/Aunt Viv on "Fresh Prince."

That's not a compliment.

If it makes you feel better, but it’s childish. And like I said, I’ve met Freepers...there is no room to talk.

It isn't the picture, it's the degree the Sycophant Press pushes this kind of fluff while we are in the middle of “Worst economic catastrophe since the Great Depression”.

I have no recollection of this kind of fodder with any recent Republican Presidents. Mrs. G.W. Bush is a gorgeous woman, and she never made the Best Dressed lists.

If I see one more story about Michelle Obama’s upper arms, I'll scream. And yes, my Prom picture sucked, but my girlfriend was beautiful so nobody noticed.

Bill Clinton did enough to our youth redefining sex. I dread what this will do for prom dresses because it has already reached ridiculous levels of lewd.

Yes, this is juvenile and makes us look small. I signed up here because I think the GOP needs to discuss issues and come out with their own plans. We’re better than this.

The press is trying to sell newspapers and magazines...they’re trying to make this couple as glamorous as possible. I think people are getting tired of it..but to go back to one’s high school prom is ridiculous. I’m tired now, but if I get a chance, I’ll type in an article from the National Enquirer that states Michelle totally dissed Oprah at the White House! It was very juicy..made Michelle look TERRIBLE...I’ve been reading more and more bad things about Michelle...it starts with the wife..as it did Bill and Hillary. It’s only been 6 weeks or so, right? Doesn’t it feel longer?

Unlike the left (and apparently some squishy newbies) we like to have some fun around here.

I think she looks great in the top picture.

The dress is a bit revealing.

Agreed. My own prom picture today would ruin my marriage and destroy me professionally. (Pink, frills, polyester, Sun-In hair streaks, enough said.)

I'd say her old prom date has class.

Dave was very handsome, still looks like a nice guy, someone you could talk to. Michelle looks pretty, too, and no sign of the anger I have come to associate with her. But you can't tell from photos.

He still seems to hold a high regard for Michelle, hope he has gone on and found a good mate. His nice comments about her reflect a gallantry on his part.

I don't remember ever reading anything about Obama being interested in any other girl but Michelle.
