Michelle’s new book is “Gardening as a photo-op”

By | May 25, 2012

As if anyone believed that Michelle Obama was going to be caught dead working in a garden or actually writing a book, the Gaurdian’s Emma Keller was obviously disappointed with the First Lady’s attempt at a gardening book.

Michelle Antionette’s new foray into the literary world is entitled “American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America” and while ill-titled, why bother to write the book at all?

The book is either an afterthought, a forced effort or just a publicity stunt with minimal risk. As Ms. Keller put it “If the first lady’s book lacks soul, it’s because her heart isn’t in it.” Then again, what is her heart in – other than expensive taxpayer-funded vacations, dinners and a large house with lots of servants?

Rumors have been rampant that Mrs. Obama isn’t even all that thrilled with being Mrs. Obama or the the First Lady. Her comments on “finally” being proud of her country only because of her husband’s achievement went further into understanding that narcissism extended further than just the President.

This book has nothing to offer gardeners- current or future. As Emma Keller wrote, “This book is gardening as photo-op and as such it’s a little stomach-churning.”

    As with most progressives it’s what they say instead of what they do. This book venture is an attempt to try and prove ‘she means it’. The book will no doubt be filled with other peoples experiences in the garden, and most likely be even written by others…
