Is Michelle Obama the new Jackie Kennedy? A new book says yes, reality says no.

by editor on January 5, 2010

Given the raging success of Mrs O the website, which chronicles the fashion statements by the Most Glamorous First Lady In History, a book was a foregone conclusion. And, of course, reviews of Mary Tomer’s Mrs O have been nothing less than stellar

Jackie Kennedy never wore an outfit that made her belly look like the Michelin Man's

“Tomer’s is at least the third fashion-related book on the first lady, and so far, it’s the most comprehensive, tracing Obama’s style from that frigid day in Springfield, Ill., when her husband announced his candidacy to the first lady’s springtime tour of Europe,” Politco.com noted.

“[Tomer] spoke with more than 40 designers for the book, which includes two-page interviews with such Obama favorites as Jason Wu, Loree Rodkin, Isabel Toledo and Peter Soronen. It’s also filled with fabric swatch close-ups, dress shots (both famous and less well known) and displays the thoroughness of a librarian in cataloging the origins of Obama’s many brooches, pins and patent-leather heels,” the Washington Post raved.

But here’s the only review you really need:

“Only on a planet where Barack Obama is considered a moderate, where a tax cheat is named Secretary of the Treasury, and where a pervert is put in charge of safe schools, could Michelle Obama be called ‘the new Jackie Kennedy,'” said IHateTheMedia.com.

And now to prove our point, let’s take a journey around le monde du faux pas de mode de Michelle Obama (for those of you who aren’t up to speed on your French fashion lingo, that means “the world of Michelle Obama’s fashion don’ts”).

The Grand Canyon. Hey, c’mon, we’re talking about the landscape.

Women can have big butts and still be slim or slender in midsection. having a big butt is not indicative of fatness. The problem here is how she wears the clothes or else how the clothes wear her and her inability to choose correctly.

One word: LIPOSUCTION
Her Let’s Move obesity campaign is hypocrisy’s finest moment. No one with a tush like hers has room to call ANYONE fat.

The Danbury Mint sent me a very excited package assuming (perhaps because I am black and how did they know I don’t know) that I would be as excited as they are to aget a “A Stunning, all porcelain, true-to-life collector treasure.” THE MICHELLE OBAMA INAUGURAL DOLL…

Ewww… http://www.danburymint.com/collectibles/prod/Michelle-Obama-Inaugural-Doll_12568.aspx

I am supposed to get excited for this? I am suppose to part with over 150 dollars of my hard earned money just to have a doll of the Queen in my house? Really? The doll looks ugly, it does her no favors.

Michelle Obama has never compared herself to Jackie O. The media are guilty for making such comparisons. Michelle is just Michelle; has her own style and is not seeking for anyone’s approval. Besides, why is everyone talking about Jackie O as though she was the personification of beauty or had the monopoly of style…well to me she wasn’t beautiful and compared to all the other first ladies, Michelle is refreshing and beautiful. Most of the comments about Michelle are racially motivated as usual as some cannot stomach the fact that she is in the white house. Had she been white with the same features, she would have been worshipped. Michelle is beautiful, period… To all the haters out there, get a life.

You’re right on one point, Jasmine. I can’t stomach the fact that Michelle is in the White House. But once again I feel I must point out that her color has nothing to do with it. It’s her attitude towards this country, and everything that the country has ever stood for. We didn’t get to be the greatest country on earth by being socialist. She has always hated America, and she still does.

Michelle Obama is the new Jackie O? Yes?

Jackie O had Camelot and Michelle O has…Camel Toe! There is not level field on that…
Michelle O also has your money in her wallet to fund her shopping jags and to pay the piper for her life of ‘glamor’ with.

Old Joe Kennedy might have been bootlegger but at least he did SOME work for a living. Contrast that with Obama’s blood line back to the patriarch and what that jackass did.

JFK was in the Navy. Obama looks to neuter the Armed Forces. JFK stood up to the Red Russians. BHO simply bows and has a stupid s*it eating grin on his face as they move to crave up the markets of EU turf and parts of Asia for themselves. The new ‘cold war’ is that of dollars and profits and market control- we, thanks to BHO are now losing that ‘Arms Race’.

BTW- China still thinks Michelle Obama is a low class tramp with a high price wardrobe (which that stupid American Tax Payer was yoked to pay for- that dumbass!). Scary as it maybe, I concur with China on this…

That picture above is not the First Family looking down into something call the “Grand Canyon”. That is a 3D life size model of the nations unemployment data made to scale and showing the shape of the USA’s future health and over all stability and security. So to the untrained eye it just looks like a giant eroded ditch.

F*ck You Obama!

Thanks for the photos! I really enjoyed you proving once again that the media is a bunch of liars. Yes, I agree. It’s not about her; it is about the blind idiots that can not bring themselves to acknowledge truth. Kool-aid is Kool-aid no matter how much sugar you put in it.

“Stick to the media, not the family.” the kids i like. begrudgingly, i will admit obama looks to be in good shape. but c’mon, patrick ewing in public, i don’t give a damn what she wears, is just butt ugly. my god, she has millions of dollars and the best medical care our taxes can provide and she can’t get that chipped tooth fixed or that ass reduced.

if it is my head the “media” keeps on pissing on, i respectfully decline to call it rain. the point of this post is to yell out to the media that we know the emperor has no clothes. the media is still enraptured with how they were able to dupe the public and manipulate the news and play a large part in getting obama elected. we know the media has an agenda to support this administration, after all, they gave birth to the obamas and they just can’t admit their baby is ugly.

Women with a tush as big as Michelle Obama’s should wear wide belts. ‘Nuff said.

Thanks for the chance to do an honest year in review. I see several themes here 1) Drapery and wallpaper – they are for windows and vertical spaces, not dresses. 2) the too casual look. Since I dress like the new Mrs. O to go to Home Depot and then schlep out the muck in the yard, I am feeling kind of special right now. Oh wait, I wouldn’t be caught dead in the prints and bows getups, and I got over belts when my hips out measured my shoulders. 3) Check out the expressions – Mrs. Dear Leader has some nasty looks on her face. I know she is a mom and a lawyer, but she may not need the legal system to get her point across. Hope I am never on the receiving end! 4) The fawning media is busy trying to make us all see the empresses new clothes. There are some hits in her collection, but they are far outweighed by the misses. My advice would be for her to stick to the middle of the road, don’t get too cute with color and print, and in the name of all that is holy, give all of those belts to charity.

As much as I enjoy reading the posts on this site, I do find this one particularly distasteful and irrelevant. You were pointing out how liberals were wishing death upon Rush Limbaugh while you here are criticizing how the first lady dresses instead of policies, etc. And the comments you added to each picture just made me cringe even more for how petty they are. Hopefully you don’t have another post like this in the future..

Jackie, you’re missing the point. We are actually making fun of the media that is gaga over Michelle, treating her as if she Jackie Kennedy reincarnated. If they were to have treated her as they would any other First Lady (since Jackie Kennedy), there would be no need for our story.

If its policies you would prefer to show the vast difference between Jackie and Michelle how about starting with Michelle’s thesis work that was under lock during the election, that wonderful piece of literary triumph that was so anti America, racist and filled with angry it was sick! But excused because she was at a crossroads in her life? I cannot even guess at the rage and media coverage if Mr. Palin or Mrs. McCain would have authored such a piece! Sharpton and Jackson would have been screaming about the racism in the white house, instead the media makes a laughable comparison with Mrs. Kennedy and sings praise of the grace and refinement of Michelle, which is ridiculous! If you want to compare character alone, Michelle would have a difficult time competing with none of her own!
One excerpt: “Black community, I am obligated to this community and will utilize all my present and future resources’ to benefit the ‘Black community’ first and foremost
She can thank the system she despises for her free ride Princeton scholarship paid for by those evil, hateful white tax payers! Jackie O was proud of America her entire life not just when her husband was in the limelight and to think she got along with just one personal assistant, while Michelle last count was twenty! Anyone who remotely believes Michelle to have class of any type should seriously consider taking a course in Human Anatomy and Geology!

Little known fact. Michelle’s wardrobe was designed by Louis Vuitton when he was living in a trailer park.

Please tell me that pix #3 was taken on Halloween…that is the ONLY excuse for a get-up like that! And she should fire the White House laundress for shrinking that sweater! LOL!!

In the Grand Canyon Picture, it took me awhile to find the First Lady. I saw two guys with two little girls.

pic. 16 says it all for me. Dang, that’s UGLY! It looks like she was raiding Miley Cirus’ closet (in the dark). Only women with BIG attitudes dress like that. Show me 1 person over the age of 14 that dresses like that, that is not a mean and nasty person. Maybe just my experience, but I imagine its more universal than not.

Honestly, I could care less what Michelle Obama wears. Not everyone has any kind of taste or fashion sense. I do care about her character and how she conducts herself as FLOTUS, though. I can’t say that I am impressed with her in that respect. Comparing her to Jackie Kennedy Onassis is laughable, though.

Neither Jackie or Michelle impress me, just because the MSM humps their leg like a dog means nothing, but it is instructive. It instructs me to look at at these people, & others they treat this way, with more scrutiny & a higher level of distrust.

She does seem to like to immitate Jackie O’s hair styles and so forth. It is so noteable that some people have started to refer to her as “Blackie O”.

Personally I’m not that hepped up on either one of them.

Comparing Michelle Obama to Jackie Kennedy is like comparing a pharmacist to a drug dealer!

What is it with the belts and bows?

I do not agree with calling out her body shape for ridicule, but seriously, a nice bra will do wonders. Maybe Mrs O wasn’t watching when Oprah did her bra show.

I do think we should let the lady be comfortable and casual, but the tank tops are not appropriate for public view. There are so many other ways to be cool and casual, this is not the look.

I can see cracking on “The Chosen One”, and even the fawning media. Getting after Mrs. Chosen One for the size of her ass or belly isn’t worthy of this or any website. Stick to the media, not the family.

Oh, and JPT, yeah you’re right … tasteless.
