Besides being an ugly shoe (in my estimation), it appears that the shoe is too small for mo’s foot.

Thanks for the ping. Ugly shoes, ugly dress, overpriced. Ever get the feeling the Obamas are messing with us and seeing how over the top they can go before the MSM notices?

lol. . .of course, there was less bang for the buck on these shoes as they do not even have 'tops'. . .look like an 'upscale' copy of a Kenyan walking shoe. And herein, may be the appeal.

Of course tax was not included in quote; so price closer to seven hundred dollars for those leather soles.

If a Republican woman shows a taste for extravagant clothing, the media jump all over it and make her look like a combination of Imelda Marcos and Marie Antoinette. But when Dem women do it, it just shows how classy and chic and hip and trend-setting they are.

Here is a sample of very glitzy SCD with a moderately high standard of dance done at some BBC event. Best viewed with high speed internet, though with time and patience you can use dialup, then replay. IIRC it's a Glasgow dance team, and should have very good dancers, but I would say the men seem a bit "wet" and do not have the "presence" of strong male dancers.

You don't have to be Scottish or have a partner to do SCD. Check out Scottish Country Dancing on YouTube and Freepmail me if you'd like to know more.

The “reel” - starting at about minute 2:30 of the Scottish Dance video is similar to the “basic level” of America Square dancing.

Typical square dance caller routine will have a pattern call of switching and exchanging partners more rapidly and vigorously than this dance - but using almost all of the same swings-your-partner, dos-si-dos, alemand-left, alamand-right, etc, etc that these are using. For basic square dancing I'd estimate there are thirty some-odd individual moves, but any (or all) of them are inserted at different times by the callers. Here, the whole routine is more stylized and fixed - but, of course, there is no caller either.

A good square dance caller will break all of the partners up, exchange and swap them - sometimes even with other squares across the room - then at the end of the dance, be able to get everybody back in their own square with their own partner.

(So of course, if you start off in the lead square at a square dance convention with your partners already swapped and switched, ....)

Advanced I and advanced II square dancers use even more moves and calls.

After the square dance pattern call, the caller will change to a dance pattern with a simpler routine of exchanging each partner with the one on your right, going through 4 repetitions of equal steps to get back at the end “go home with the one that brung ya”

No, I believe their taste is really that bad.

Those legs look unshaven too on those mannish feet. I concur with your opinion.

She has got to be either bipolar or schizophrenic (sorry if that’s misspelled). How does the woman go from A, which I think is kind of nice, to B, which is so heart-stopping ugly? There has to be something going on in that woman’s brain. Maybe the psychiatrist was called out and that’s why Obama left the golf course. They had to make something up to hide the shrink!

Here’s to outfit A:

Outfit B:

“Hmmmm, don’t know how they could afford these things.”

IIRC, they made over $5 million in 2007, mainly from book sales.

I’m not a 0 apologist by any stretch of the imagination, but they can afford nice things. Are they setting a good example? Now that’s a different question...

THE most ugly first lady. Whatever she wears is like putting lipstick on a pig.

Unfortunately out of your price range? Why should they be out of range of anyones price range? They are rags made by some poor unfortunate Taiwanese slave. They should be worthless!

You’d think the woman could at least shave around her
Ugly shoes, I hope they are cruel.

Did she write that or did some idiot transcribe it? The grammatical error is obviously hers, but somebody can’t spell “lens”.
