FLOTUS Flawless in Tracy Reese 

First Lady Michelle Obama was flawless last night in a Tracy Reese dress as she delivered her speech at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. The speech brought the convention crowd to their feet and had many at home in tears as they listened to Mrs Obama make the case for her husband's reelection. FLOTUS was so flawless that her carefully coiffed curl garnered its own Twitter account, @MichellesCurl. While the First Ladies' curl does not have as many followers as @InvisibleObama it was still a nice try.

While Mrs Obama looked great she was not just window dressing. Her speech definitely differentiated her husband from his challenger, raised the energy level at the convention and rallied the base at home. describes FLOTUS' speech as the "Speech That Destroyed Twitter." According to

"Michelle Obama’s Tuesday night speech about her husband and the Obama family at the Democratic National Convention drove 28,003 tweets-per-minute at its peak, nearly double the 14,289 mark reached by Mitt Romney‘s acceptance speech at the Republican convention last week."

"By the end of its first night, the Democratic Convention as a whole had sparked more than 3 million tweets, nearing the 4 million point reached by the entirety of last week’s Republican Convention."

And who could forget the most epic line of the night...

"Being president doesn't change who you are. It reveals who you are." Michelle Obama

Pundits are touting the speech as "politically masterful" saying we're witnessing the transformation of Michelle Obama the political spouse to Michelle Obama the politician. While no one knows the future, we do know that the First Ladies' speech delivered and now it's up to the Democratic base to bring it home.

Well, hopefully the DNC and some tax payers feel they got their money's worth for all the prepping and primping and rehearsals Michelle's gone through over the last few weeks, trotted out like a newborn filly in test markets to deliver small speeches in anticipation for her
"big" moment. There she was, eyebrows freshly painted on, skin burnished, hair coiffed and teased (I think the "curl" was really just flyaway hair but that's just me), talons, I mean, nails pressed on tight.

But whoever her Henry Higgins was couldn't get rid of the "old Michelle" entirely. There was that same awkward galumphing walk across the stage, looking down at her shoes and her shoulders hunched over like she was still conscious of being the tallest girl in her high school class. All those same scowls and pointing fingers held over from the 2008 campaign. The inability to get her teeth around the word "struggle" that repeatedly sounded slurred.

And that outfit, oh Lord! A Speedo swimsuit top attached to a hotel bed cover. Scarlett O'Hara recycling the family's curtains came to mind. Yes, yes, we know she loves showing off those arms, but can a woman nearly 50 really still carry this off? I n Michelle's case, I say no. Anyway, it's not a cocktail party, it's a convention and she totally missed the mark with this silly gown.

As for the speech, it's not entirely Michelle's fault it was such a bore. Every Republican speaker from Anne Romney on down ("I served tuna casserole on an ironing board") has to preface their remarks with a long-winded teary history of their poor parents landing in America with 2 dollars and change. No matter that in every case they left a much worse world to come to this country, no matter how bad their first years MAY SEEM have been. Does no one enjoy being called middle class or, perish the thought, upper middle class anymore without having to dress down for the great unwashed?

Finally, where does Michelle get off calling herself "Mom in Chief"? In addition to being disrespectful to her husband's REAL title of Commander of Chief, the whole idea that she is some kind of role model for moms in general is ludicrous. Most mothers would take issue with her painting herself as the typical Mom, what with servants at her beck and call, her mother recruited into the role of unpaid day care, the kids flying on Air Force 1 whenever they want. She hasn't loaded a dishwasher, brought laundry to the cleaners, been in a carpool, or coached a soccer team her whole 4 years. Great life if you can get it!!

lavaughan, she was perfect in every way. Don't be mad at her all because you cannot get a proper man that can do what President Obama can do for Michelle. I have never heard so many jealous and sad people in my life. Your comments were just stupid.

I read the first commenter post on this page and felt the ugly spirit of the poster expressing his her right to the freedom of speech. The unfortunate side of the internet is that its a breeding ground for cowards whom express every thought rolling through their mind. I would love to get a look at the 'real' lives of who the 'so servery dissatisfieds of the world' are. I would love to see what kind of mother/father, sibling, adult child, friend, employee, and co-worker that they really are. For me this was a riveting speech because finally I was able to relate.
