Why was Michelle Obama at the Oscars?
The Washington Post ^ | 2-25-13 | Jennifer Rubin

It was the average too-long, unfunny, over-produced Academy Awards TV show and then, after suffering through the 10-hour (well, it seemed like it) show, there was the first lady. In a ball gown. With military service personnel in dress uniform behind her.

I can only imagine the outrage if Laura Bush had ever done something like this.

Laura is too classy to be on something as debauched as the Oscars. Michelle Antoinette, on the other hand......

Laura Bush didn't see the WH as her personal ‘trademark’ for self-aggrandizement.

Shouldn’t the Worst Lady (mooch-elle), the equal-opportunity, affirmative-action grifter loser be in a prison cell? What a shameless, classless, large-posteriored loser.

Because the Obamas are more concerned about being celebrities than they are about leading the country.

She had a global audience of how many people? She chose promoting homosexuality in her little speech with some of our military standing in the background with forced smiles on some of their faces. The whole thing is Peronish.

The background props were there for a purpose. The young military members in the background were put there to make a statement that the military is solid behind Obama. Far from the truth.

Fake and phoney....just like the Hollywoood crowd.

The Obama’s are determined to take full advantage of their positions for celebrity golf trips, lavish vacations and now the Academy Awards and don't want to be bothered with the minutia of the job, like protecting the lives of American embassy staff under attack overseas.

This is nothing more than advertising. They are using every free and government paid opportunity they can to advertise the obama brand. This is opportunistic and degrading to the office of the President. It is nothing more than a continuation of the massive propaganda that obama deploys by using every opportunity they can create or infuse themselves in.
This is just wrong.

There won't be enough band width in the universe to accommodate their combined egos!

I am so very pleased that I don’t have smellelevision.

I have seen some very beautiful, intelligent, exciting, sexy, big hearted and talented Black women/ladies....but that ugly ghetto-rat sure isn’t one of them.

If a guy had a 1972 Ford Pinto and put a fortune into it, trying to make it look like a Bentley, it would still be a 1972 Ford Pinto.... looks bad, too much road noise, embarrassing to even be around and cost far more than it’s worth. Fact is, if that thing was hit from the rear, it would likely explode into a ball of fire.

I actually find her very disgusting.... in every way.

They have done a marvelous job of segementing the low informed voters by pandering as “cool” and “hip” (e.g. Clinton on the Arsinio show). To Hell with what their ideas are or capability to lead. It’s how they look.

I'm afraid it's far more serious than that. It's the "Cult of Personality" mode. This is the "Juan and Eva Peron" style of governing, typical of totalitarian governments. The ruler(s) "become" the State. The media are 100% complicit in the propaganda.

I only tuned into the Awards to see who would win Best Picture(Figured Zero Dark Thirty would get snubbed which it did) and BAM, I see a giant hippo on my TV screen and I said “OH HELL NO” and left the room..too bad she didnt go on her little rant about how those evil rich need to pay their fare share you think those celebs would have grabbed onto their wallets extra tight(Oh yeah, almost forgot, they are Dems, and therefore they don’t have to pay a dime..Rich Dems are not considered rich by the left)

Nancy Reagan is probably a Life Member in the Screen Actors Guild and would have every right to be at the Oscars. Moochelle is a SCAB.

I would have to have watched that worthless waste of time to know that the worthless waste of skin appeared.

Who cares? The Oscars are staged, bought and nothing more than a combination of self-aggrandizement and public self-abuse on the part of Hollywood.

I think she was there cause someone told her
she was nominated for best supporting FLOTUS.

Haha, she wasn’t even named.

She did pick up an award for best supporting actress
playing the part of a wife of a gay man though.

I done nothing to support Hollywood in years, including watching those fools give awards to each other.

Turn them off.

I can't tell if you're actually serious (I have trouble with that lately).

I'm almost positive that they knew in advance that that wouldn't happen.

That could be what we should be talking about.

The White House had to know in advance what film would win, so as to avoid embarrassment.

So much for all the supposed secrecy about the results.

Interesting, because I named her “Wookievita” this morning on a post.

I am convinced that she will be making her own inauguration speech in 2017. She has been taking some walking tutoring, and she has gotten a makeover. Why now? Got to be a 2016 pseudo run for the WH, which will just be a sham so that Soros can pretend we actually had an election.

The Obamas have to constantly be in the news. It keeps the sheeple drinking the kool-aid, otherwise they would wake up and see all the failures of this administration and denounce the plan for Barrys’ idea of a socialist nation.

“The Obama’s are determined to take full advantage of their positions for celebrity golf trips, lavish vacations and now the Academy Awards and don’t want to be bothered with the minutia of the job, like protecting the lives of American embassy staff under attack overseas.”

This is a common misunderstanding. Your definition of “the job” is not Obama’s.

It’s true that, by your definition, he’s not doing the job.

But this does not mean he’s lazy, or interested in golf/vacations/celebrity. If only that were true!

His job is to transform the United States into a Marxist-Leninist dictatorship. He’s following a script that has been carried out before, and which is well-documented and well understood.

So far, he has completed all of his designated tasks on o ahead of schedule. Resistance within the political system has been virtually eliminated. Preferential enforcement/non-enforcement of the laws is well underway. The battlefield for civilian disarmament is being prepared. Te general staff turnover is tremendous.

The next act, of course, is provoking a rebellion in order to crush it and institute the dictatorship of the proletariat.

He’s not lazy. He’s not incompetent. He’s very, very good at what he does - and our liberty hangs by a thread as a result.

The real question isn't why her people wanted her to appear on the telecast.

It's why she was allowed on the show.

The producers of the show, Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, produced Chicago.

They are gay and this, I guess, is payback for getting rid of "Don't Ask Don't Tell" and Obama's shift back to support for gay marriage.

Zadan got his start co-producing the original Footloose, so maybe the preacher was on to something about dancing and where it leads ...

Very interesting... And someone connected with the Oscars has definately got the connections at the WH to have run this idea by staff, MO and 0 himself. Then they put together this whole production. They would have required a film crew/production staff at the WH and some type of rehearsal with MO. A lot of planning went into this. It has all the appearances of State run media.

Tonight, just as Hannity was going to tell us exactly how much Michevita's appearance cost the taxpayers, we had some excitement in the neighborhood....I ran outside, pajamas, robe and all.....and missed the rest of his program.

Did anyone catch his report on this?

(Couple of break-ins, homes being searched, cop cars with blazing lights zooming up and down the streets, two helicopters circling overhead.....wow, such excitement)
