"Camelot With A Tan"?
Based on what?

Yes, Michelle Obama recently stated "I am Camelot with a tan".

First off, other than being roughly the same age as Jackie Kennedy was back in the early 1960's, I don't see a helluva lot that would equate the Obama's to so-called Camelot.

Secondly, Michelle... you don't have a tan. Your body has a higher content of melanin. Try to get it right, sweetheart.

But to further dispel the myth that the Obamas are resurrecting Camelot, here's something I posted a few months back....

Barack Obama Is JUST LIKE JFK!!

1. JFK volunteered for military service. BO never joined the Armed Forces.

2. JFK volunteered for combat duty. BO never joined the Armed Forces.

3. JFK was decorated for personal heroism and was wounded in combat. BO never joined the Armed Forces.

4. JFK served in the United States House of Representatives for six years. BO never served in the US House.

5. JFK authored a Pulitzer Prize winning book. BO hasn't.

6. JFK served in the United States Senate for six years before he ran for President (a total of twelve years experience in the US Congress). BO served in the Senate for two years before he ran for President (a total of two years experience).

7. JFK supported the Armed Forces to the degree that the US Army officially named their Special Forces school the "John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School". BO didn't even bother to vote on the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008, which among other things, reaffirmed support for all men and women of the United States Armed Forces, and allocated funds for veterans health services.

8. JFK was young, handsome and married to a beautiful woman. BO is young, handsome and is married to a beautiful woman.Yeah... Barack Obama is just like John Kennedy.

I think "beautiful" might be a little subjective when it comes to Mrs. Obama. Mrs. Kennedy was an ICON. Somehow I don't see First Lady Obama (I shudder at the thought) decked out in Givenchy.

For Michelle's sake I hope Obama is not JUST like JFK.

Just like JFK - even to the very end?

i'm fairly sure you don't understand what the word "stated" means.

from your source:

"She is a study in little black dresses, conservative pearls, preppy hair and restraint. Again, the implied message is unmistakable: I am neither subversive nor threatening. I am not some scary "other." I am Camelot with a tan."

michelle obama can be called a lot of things, but i doubt someone would characterize her as "an implied message."
