The Tan Suit: Who Wore it Better?

The Republican’s latest attack on President Obama is centered around a tan suit. I wish that I lived in a world where that would be hard to believe. Congressman Peter King discussed the President’s remarks on ISIS yesterday. Transcript from Buzzfeed: “There’s no way any of us can excuse what the president did yesterday,” King said of President Obama on NewsMaxTV.

“When you have the world watching… a week, two weeks of anticipation of what the United States is gonna do. For him to walk out — I’m not trying to be trivial here — in a light suit, light tan suit, saying that first he wants to talk about what most Americans care about the revision of second quarter numbers on the economy.”

Yes, going after someone’s suit when discussing world affairs is definitely not ‘trivial‘; it’s serious and sober criticism – that is, if you’re on Entertainment Television. Peter King, let me repeat – who is a Congressman – regularly shows up to TV shows like this… with an open shirt, without a tie, is clearly not one to criticize. This made me think – are tan suits really the problem? I mean – Washington DC is in the south, and lighter colored suits are a pretty normal thing. So I did a bit of searching and found another President that wore brown. So, we ask you readers of –Who wore it better? Make sure to answer on our facebook page!


After writing this I did come across Congressman Dingell’s brown suit photo.

Some extra fun additions of Reagan rocking the tan suit at inappropriate times that we just couldn’t let go.

Oh, and you can get a doll with Reagan in a tan suit!

    Wingnuts planned to sow some wild oats in the minority fields,but their phobia towards established scientific methods led them to another crop failure. Had they planted test plots they would have known it is not a good practice to insult and belittle prospective voting groups.. Obie is ripe for criticism,just not about the color of his suit(unless he plays a round of golf wearing it).

    amen to Jeff Friedman in FB remarks above and high-5 to ZR there too 🙂

    The real problem is that it’s “tan”. You know, not “black”. They are making it a racial thing. “Flesh-colored” is what they mean. If that’s the best they can come up with, I think the President wins.

  6. Without a DOUBT: President Obama….!!
