    Yeah. Right.

    Michelle Obama is the nation's first first lady to add a full-time makeup artist to her traveling entourage, according to stylists who have worked with presidential wives over the past 16 years.

    From the posted article:

    Last week, Grimes-Miles joined "First Hairstylist" Johnny Wright, 31, aboard Air Force One as official guests of the president, during their six-day trip across Europe.

    The Obamas privately paid
    for the travel expenses of the styling team, according to a spokeswoman for the first lady. But the high-profile jobs don't pay much, say former White House stylists.

    "You do it because you know you will have some prestige and you will be able to make money later," Portelli said.

    Takes a lot of work and constant attention to keep Michele's hair straight. If she's paying the bill I have no objection. I'm sure other first ladies paid a lot to have their hair curled, and dyed.

    blue collar families don't hire united states senators to get a purebred dog from a shelter in texas and get it trained and homed before hand so it arrives perfectly able to adjust to white house life.

    It's the perception. Regardless of who is paying for it.

    She is the first First Lady to do this.

    Don't tell people you are Blue Collar then hire a full time make up artist.

    Oh....never mind. That's right. Say one thing during the campaign, then do another once elected.

    My bad.

    Do they have special dog training specifically for adjusting to living in the White House?

    The dog was given by Sen. Edward M. Kennedy and had some training (house broken) before being given to the BO family.

    Good thing it was Ted doing the training. Poor dog wouldn't be able to dive into water if there was an emergency.

    geeeessseeee folks you were the ones who thought Bush was just a regular Joe remember?

    He was born filthy rich and acted like it his whole life.

    These people were born regular Americans and worked their asses off to be where they are.

    buy a fucking clue would you.
