If looks could kill - Michelle Obama, Carla Sarkozy

Taken at the D-Day memorial 6/6 - you know, the one where they forgot to invite the Queen of England, who is the only living head of state who actually served during World War II.  The one where Gordom Brown slipped and called it Obama Beach instead of Omaha Beach? And before the Obamas jetted off to France where they had decided in advance not to accept President and First Lady Sarkozy's invitation to dinner:

She is one angry human being.
I sure wish she would get rid of that chip on her shoulder.

*snort* Wow. I sure hope that was a just bad timing. Michelle needs to work a little harder at maintaining a pleasant expression on her face, methinks.

Michelle Obama's thinking, "Quit lookin at my man or I'll kill you!" :)

Is there a chance this is a photo shop job ?

I'm just thinking the person who submitted this may not be truthful.

How can we know ?

It's a Reuters photo: See it at http://news.yahoo.com/nphotos/Most-Emailed-Photos/ss/1756;_ylt=A9G_b7JUly1KlToBBwCaK8MA

I posted it on FB last night with the title:

A picture is worth 1,000 words!

Wow! That's quite an unflattering photo.

what in the world could they possibly have against the Sarkozy's? Why not accept a dinner invitation? (I am sure I have missed something...)

I thought they hired an image consultant to get rid of her "angry eyebrows". (sorry, help thinking about Veggie Tales.)

Pretty is as pretty does.

Thank you, Anonymous.

The picture is awfully awful then isn't it, showing the need for a bit of civility coaching.

Contrast this picture with the one of Michelle shopping in Paris. Quite the different lady there.

Am I old fashioned at 41 to think that white is inappropriate for a memorial service for what was a slaughter of men that day on Omaha Beach?

I could be wrong, but Michelle may prefer an event that feature her on center stage over one that honours others.

"Civility Coaching?" Really? If she needs coaching in how to be civil, then she already has a real problem, doesn't she?
