eveday--maybe racist was the wrong word, but your comment was exactly my point. Trixie--The Obama's didn't pose nor sat down with People, Us or any of those glossy tabloids. Those mags. buy the photos from different outlets and the interviews are pieced together from previous ones, that's why they always have unnamed sources.

"Michelle Obama is not a model, she's the president's wife so I can't see why her beauty (or the lack of it) should be relevant."Well said, Eve.I can see that there are plenty of people who dislike the Obamas' politics and are unhappy with the election, but I don't think that that should be expressed in petty comments about the way the First Lady looks. And as for people trying to make it the Obamas' problem that the tabloids are treating them like celebrities, that's just silly. It's the tabloids' problem, not the Obamas'.

I agree. The comments about her teeth/chin were tastless & uncalled for. The sad thing is, IMHO, once the Obamas sat down for interviews with People & US etc. they opened the door for paparazzi type scrutiny. I don't like seeing them on the cover of any of these mags because they are not celebrities in the vein of George Clooney & Julia Roberts. The office of the President deserves more respect than that.

I can see your point as well, and I don't think people were necessarily being racist (and that's why I said that I could be wrong but it probably had something to do with the comments about her appearance). Maybe Lexie_Kesh was just being a little defensive and considered that racism. However, I thought the teeth and chin remarks pretty tasteless. Michelle Obama is not a model, she's the president's wife so I can't see why her beauty (or the lack of it) should be relevant.

eveday - I see your point, but nothing anyone said was racist. Remarking on someone's teeth or chin isn't making a racist remark. It's not necessarily nice, but it isn't racist.

Trixie6, I don't think Lexie_Kesh was referring to "everybody" who disagrees with her. She said "some of you...". And I may be wrong, but it probably has to do with people pointing out Michelle Obama's teeth and chin (and that shouldn't be the point, I mean...we're discussing the fact they're politicians on the cover of gossip magazines, not if they're beautiful or not).

I really like Obama and hope he is a great president, but the covers bother me. And not for the reason listed above. I just don't think the president should be treated like a regular celebrity. He has enough to worry about without his family being stalked by photographers. And by putting them on the covers, all of those magazines are just encouraging it.

Lexie_Kesh - So anyone who disagrees with you about Obama is racist?

I love seeing them on covers - they are the face of our country. However, the tabloid headlines ("lies") seem disrespectful - they may be celebrities (because they are world famous) but they are not entertainers. They deserve more respect.

Seriously doubt all this media attention would have occurred if McCain had won. They didn't do it for Bush. The parades and balls are tradition, but the hoopla? Its all new, not even as popular as Clinton was, he never got any of this attention. Its interesting reading the comments. Some of you are not hiding your racism well. Shameful.

Milehigh so what if Bush graduated from Yale and Harvard. Tons of rich kids "graduate" from prestigious schools, doesn't mean they got an education. The man couldn't speak in complete sentences, he couldn't enunciate anything, it has nothing to do with his accent, which imo is a silly analogy. Spin it all you want, the man lacked intelligence, period. President Obama is no savior, he is no Messiah, the media right are the ones spinning that nonsense. Bottom line: HE WON, GET OVER IT!! The man is the first African-American president. He is well educated, smart, well spoken, cultured, calm and collected. Why shouldn't people be happy? Why shouldn't they celebrate intelligence going back to the White House? In due time it will calm down. As far as I'm I'm concerned it can go on for 8 YEARS!!! If your grandmother dresses like the first lady, she has impeccable taste. Good for her.

I read these magazine as an escape, I'd rather read about politics elsewhere.ALthough I can understand why there were so many covers of the day he became the 44th President of the U.S.A.That event wasnt just about politics.
