    Good Lord, why is she still trying to be in the public eye?

    Please, just go away.

    People want to be portrayed as they wished others would see them.

    Are taxpayers paying for 'official' First Lady portraits? If so, that's a good place to start on efforts to reduce government spending.

    Possibly because we tend to have a good sense of humor.

    Apparently this is a normal thing for presidents and first ladies. They get their portraits done after they leave office.

    They should have used a photo like this:

    On the bright side they did get the size of the dress proportionately correct.

    What is official about it? Edited to add: apparently official White House portraits of President and Mrs. Obama for display.

    It will be in the National Gallery. People will see what they want in it. No big deal other than it is done and that is one fewer PR moment for the Obama's.

    I did not think it was possible to be less attractive than michelle o, that artist proved me wrong.

    I agree with PhotoFeller, I sure hope none of my tax dollars went to pay for that garbage.
