    FOX News is the thinest veiled Neo-Con Republican propaganda machine this side of THE MOUTH ( Rush). I long for the sanity my moderate party once stood for and I don`t mean the NO Party that`s controled by the far right wing.

    Michelle Obama is a fantastic role model for women around the world. And a world led by the kind hands of women is a better world indeed.

    Regretfully our First lady does not know how to handle the other first ladies. She has been a disaster for our country. I hope that Obama goes away sooner than later. It is a big mistake that we opted for this change.

    This lady is an anti-american traitor and shouldn't be allowed to show her face. How low have we come to embrace this disgrace

    Jennifer, she looks no more like a gaint than the other taller white female with dark hair standing near her.
    Of course, they would place her between two women who looks like they are about 4 feet 10 inches. I guess you didn't see that though.

    There are 22 women in this photo...either 1) there are more than just spouses in this picture or 2) at least 1 of the G20 Heads of State is a polygomist!!! Go you rascals!

    I would argue that the american journalist taking the photo is the one most likely to have requested Mrs obama's positioning. not her. you get points for reaching as far as possible to find fault in her though.

    What's wrong with the photo, Democratic Party = Organized Crime? Why are you embarrassed?

    Maybe you should ask your doctor to prescribe medications for your steel heart - you are a very ill person!

    This is a G-20 photo.

    23 women present.

    Two H.O.S. are women; two male spouses missing .

    That would be 25 "people"

    Government math. Calculation is only 20% off.!!! ( 25 x 20% = 5 ( 25 – 5 ) = 20 ) .

    There are 22 women in the photo, and among them is not Prof. Joachim Sauer, the husband of German Chancellor Angela Merkel. So if at least one spouse is missing, and these are the spouses of the G20 leaders, how are there more than 20 of them in the photo?

    Where's a pic of the mental healthcare providers for Ghaddaffi and Achmadinijad? Otherwise, looks like a family reunion to me.

    Wow some of these comments are atrocious! The First Lady embodies what is truly great about this country. The fact that she is well educated, a great mom, normal, strong and comes from the regular working class makes her an example of why people from all parts of the world want their daugters to become American Citizens. Michelle Obama worked very hard to get to where she is. There was no silver spoon. Just as Sotomoyor worked hard. Its The American Dream. I do feel that people are trying to reduce her to stereotypical nonsense in reference to black women, a lady emersed in fashion, or just a run of the mill wife who is married to a powerful man. Its unfortunate that a country such as ours that frowns on the inequalities towards women in other countries can't accept ALL of The First Lady's accomplishments or her status in this country.

    Poor little man calling himself "Democratic Party=Organized Crime." The day of the incompetent conservative thugs are over. You lost. And you'll never see power again. Get used to it.

    Where are the MALE spouses??????? I can't wait for the 22nd century; clearly the 21st still seems to reflect the 18th.

    Imagine if these were the actual leaders, queens, princesses, head of states.etc. i think the world would have been more safe, more peace, more love, more respect for one another instead of hating each other and killing each other.
    let us come back to the real world, i guess i was day dreaming. There were great women leaders from all over the world, from Britain, Ireland, Philipines, Srilanka, India, Pakistan. What about America?Not yet! Sarah Palin could have great commander in chief with a lot foreign experince..ooops!
    However, I believe they are capable of becoming better leaders than their husbands. For now, they should have more influence on their spouses. Forinstance, for instance first lady should talk to may be secretely to Hugo Chavez's wife, Kim ill's wife, Ahmedinijad's wife etc. That way we'll have less wars in this planet. All mothers should do everything to protect their offsprings. I am a man and i know headless men are. Good idea huh.

  24. Oh no..

    Too bad it wasn't Cindy McCain instead. Michelle Obama is about as attractive as watching Erkel get runned over by a mack truck.
