The youth, glamour and dashing political style of Senator Barack Obama has evoked many comparisons with President John F Kennedy, but the most Kennedyesque member of the Obama family may be his wife Michelle...

Why? Because she wore a strand of fake pearls in a photo-op?! You’re right—the bark alerts write themselves.

Gosh, I must have missed the quote where Jackie O calls Americans ‘sloths’.

Jackie Kennedy didn't attend Princeton.

PU did not accept female students to its undergraduate program.

Either that, or it's because her hair flips up at the ends -- also a fakeover.

I saw an article that showed Michelle Obama’s clothing and then similar outfits on Jackie Onassis. Obama has obviously been aiming for the comparison. One dress, a sleeveless shift was exactly the same as one that Jackie wore, others were just the same type of print, like a large black and white houndstooth with a big collar. It is no accident. I’m still waiting for M.O. to show up in a pill box hat.

Jackie O was to the manner born, had a squeaky voice that sounded like someone was poking her in the butt with a sharp stick. Dynastic Marrage.

Jackie behaved like a president's wife.

Michelle Obama behaves like a loudmouthed broad.

I've no illusions about Jackie, but fer cripes sake, she was not a clueless whiner.

She recognized that she was privileged and acted like it. Michelle is privileged and whines about it. Sheesh.

Obama’s wife is loud, pushy and obnoxious, lacking elegance and etiquette. She is more like Amarosa.

A bad comparison. Jackie was fluff and later married Onassis for his money and was nasty to her stepdaughter. Michelle is far more outspoken and more formidable. They are not the only ones to dress properly. Laura Bush and Pat Nixon were also.

JFK was a womanizer who shared a mistress with the Mafia. Obama MIGHT be more conservative in his personal life but not in politics. One similarity - both JFK and Obama won an election because of the corrupt Chicago political machine.

“Had a squeaky voice that sounded like someone was poking her in the butt”

Not that I recall. If anything, it was so soft she was often hard to hear.

Jackie-O and Michelle Obama???

Jackie-O’s higher education culminated in a “is my school racist” joke of a thesis?

Jackie-O was never proud of her country until people voted for her husband?

Jackie-O spewed arrogant hateful trash talk?

Odd comparison.

envy can cause people to do strange things.

mrs. obama's oft-espoused covetousness of the privileges of the privileged are littany; is it any wonder she's channel the Poster Girl of Privilege?

If she thought she could steal her identity and pretend to be her, she just might do that.

addendum:

what is it with the left? They're never happy. Bill Clinton wants to be Clarence Clemmons and Michele Obama wants to be Jackie O.

Regardless of that, as many have already pointed out, she didn’t run her country in the ground like this woman has done.

Have you ever watched Michelle Obama walk? She is awkward, gangly — totally lacking in grace. Jackie O walked with elegance and never felt the need to chime in with strident opinions while her husband was campaigning.

Amazing, but effective. I'm not interested in her clothes, but if she says one more thing about how this country wasn't good enough for her until just lately, THAT is newsworthy. This other stuff just allows Freepers to show their worst and often catty side, unfortunately.

Jackie was breeding stock, she knew it. She did have a certain amount of class, she knew what fork to use, how to walk in high heals, dress well, engage in small talk, and smile.

Her post White House carrier casts doubts on her class factor.

Channeling Jackie “O”?

She shopped and decorated while her husband had a string of affairs?

Wow, that’s something to aspire to.

Go Michelle.

Jackie O was a LADY - something Michelle O is unlikely to be rightfully accused of.

And Jackie didn't consider herself a co-candidate. She kept to the traditional role of a First Lady - and that has unique functions that are valuable.

Jackie used her traditional role to spiff up the WH...concerned herself with the historical aspects, on being a perfect hostess to Foreign Dignitaries, etc.. .

Laura B has been a perfect First Lady.

Hitlery, and now Michelle, thinks the public is electing not just their husbands to run the country, but them too.

Hopefully, she'll keep running her mouth. She's an even better asset to us that tahreeza was.
