I was looking at pics of Jackie Kennedy today and it appalls me that Michele Obama is compared to Jackie.

The lamestreammedia has never let up in comparing the two and Michelle Obama has none of the qualities ;photogenic or otherwise .

Her husband told the wookie before he was elected that she’d be the new Jackie. Well, maybe the most kind thing one can say is that love is blind.. However, I think of this as more evidence that BHO is just delusional.

you know, jackie wasn’t even jackie. she was
spinning the camelot myth before
spinning began. she was rather silly too,
and shallow and spoke in a little baby
voice except when she was coldly admonishing
the help for improperly ironing her hose.

BINGO!

Imelda Marcos had more class, which was very little.

You got that right. "Jackie" was as big a myth and a fraud as "JFK" was. Still, at least she was telegenic and fashionable.

Because Jackie was “proud of her country”, did not bitch to her husband about the time in folding the American flag and Jackie was human, not yeti or wookie.

Exactly. Jackie was a phony. But she did have some glamor, and the Wookie and her syncophants in the media refuse to admit that the Wookie is incapable of glamor.

I was a grade schooler when Kennedy was in office, and literally revered the President and the First Lady almost like royalty (I was just a kid, ok?)

For that day and time, Jackie Kennedy was about as close to perfect as anyone could want for a First Lady. Even decades after Camelot had come crashing down, she remained the standard.

I saw the magazine cover you’re referring to in the grocery store the other day, and the same thought occurred to me. How far Americans’ standards have fallen. Moo-chelle can’t hold a candle to Jackie on her very best day. She has shamed the honorable station she holds, since the day she moved into the White House.

What a fitting companion for the worst president of all time.

Jackie kept Carolyn and John Jr. away from Teddie and the other Kennedy’s as much as possible when they were growing up.

Disbarred Lawyer. Rents summer home. Takes family on US Taxpayers vacations. Tells the country they need to go on a diet when she should be leading the way on her weight problems. Now what are we comparing?

In that picture she looks like she spends most of her time slouching around the house in ragged house slippers. Maybe that is where Obama got the house slipper idea.

comparing Jackie O to Obama’s Husband, would be like comparing Rosanne Barr(the singer) to Charlotte Church.

Ugh- the rolled shoulders, the horrible posture, the crooked bow on a COTTON shirt, the...the...hair...

If the two genteel ladies sad side by side, I bet they are not as wide together as the wookie. And I will bet they love our country more than it does.

Not an ounce of class and incapable of being a lady. Disgusting. Just downright embarrassing.

She is voluntarily inactive, which means she was not disbarred.

In a battle of the shoes, we have Payless vs. Louboutin

$8.00 vs $800

And, when you are representing our country, we would appreciate it if you didn’t get your clothes from The Dress Barn.

Someone should photoshop a tiny pink pillbox hat on top of the moose’s head. Then put a caption below “Camelot”

Cameltoe perhaps...never Camelot!

The lamestreammedia has never let up in comparing the two and Michelle Obama has none of the qualities

One of the qualities Jacqueline Kennedy had was standing by a husband who relentlessly cheated on and humiliated her - a fact which she knew was well known to the socialites, politicians and media she had to encounter every day. Another quality was marrying some billionaire for money - and then watching him cheat relentlessly on her.

Quite frankly, the fact that Michelle Obama hasn't exhibited these "qualities" is a point in her favor - Jackie Kennedy was not exactly a walking advertisement for dignity or self-respect. Compared to that, bad taste in clothes and a big butt aren't really the biggest deal in the world.

"Why Michelle Obama will never be Jackie Kennedy

I was looking at pics of Jackie Kennedy today and it appalls me that Michele Obama is compared to Jackie. "

Jackie was naturally elegant while MO is nothing more than a reasonably attractive black woman who is trying to look elegant.

My sister says that MO doesn't walk elegantly, she galumps around like a woman with too much weight to carry.

Wasn’t it Joan Rivers that referred to Michelle as Blackie O, early in Obama’s term?

The picture is one of those that’s Photoshopped but true. The two ladies are Carla Bruni, the First Lady of France, and Letizia, Princess of Asturia, wife of the heir to the throne of Spain. Carla is the one in the Laboutins. Michelle was shopped in, but the proportions are accurate. Both ladies are quite lovely, but unlike Mrs Sarkozy, the princess does not have a long and colorful personal history with men.

Camelot was/is a Jackie cojured up myth carried on by ass kissing media whores.

She may or not have been a phoney. I don’t know...but look at the time in which she lived. It just wasn’t the thing to do to not support your husband.

Thank you for the info. This is good academic fodder to be aware of.
Nevertheless, when Moo lectures us on weight or health, it's good to keep accurate perspective.

I think obozo cheats on his wife , too, altho w/men.
Flotus still stands behind him, no?

On another note, my post , perhaps unclear, referred to public & political deportment and fashion sense of which Flotus has none.
