The Obamas announced today that they will be hosting another Performance at the White House event on May 28 to honor American singer and songwriter Carole King:
As part of their In Performance at the White House series, the President and First Lady will host a concert in the East Room honoring singer-songwriter Carole King, who will be awarded the 2013 Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. President Obama will present the award as he did when the Library of Congress honored Stevie Wonder (2009), Sir Paul McCartney (2010), and the songwriting team of Burt Bacharach and Hal David (2012). The program will include performances by King, as well as Gloria Estefan, Billy Joel, Jesse McCartney, Emeli Sandé, James Taylor and Trisha Yearwood.

Mrs O was roundly criticized for her scary appearance at the Oscars---the star buzz is that those in the seats heaved a collective groan when she appeared. Post-Oscar stories left her out of the reports centered on red carpet apparel---one star's dress was designed by the same designer as Mrs O's dress. But reports omitted any mention of her, or her pricey dress.
LOYAL DEMOCRAT DONNY DEUTSCH WEIGHED IN ON MRS O'S OSCAR BOMB: "As far as I'm concerned, she was an uninvited guest. Now what I mean by that is (as an advert guru), you have to give the consumer, the viewer, the ultimate respect. They tuned in to watch movie stars, to watch movies. And all of a sudden, politics is thrown at them."
"If I want to watch her on Jimmy Fallon, that's okay. But, (the Awards)---that was an intrusion, and I have a feeling that three out of four Americans -- Democrat or Republican -- don't want to see the First ady (there). I think you have to respect your audience enough to not impose her, that's not a moment we're looking for there---the President or the First Lady," Deutsch said on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight."
DONNY CONTINUED: "....the tone of it, it was almost a monarch quality.....an elitist flavor....(replete w/ uniformed military guards). I was watching and going, 'huh?' and I'm a Democrat," Deutsch told host Piers Morgan. "I just thought it was very very tone deaf and I was really surprised they did it," Deutsch concluded.
If this keeps up, pretty soon the self-serving O's will be depicted as the new Juan and Evita (/snix).
One could even say Ohaha's using the "Argentina Strategy." He and his wife see themselves with unlimited power---employing military strongmen to keep the we, the rabble in check---while duping the citizenry into thinking they are "humanitarians.
SOUND FAMILIAR? The Perons bankrupted Argentina, took savage, total power by confiscating money from the rich-----and letting Evita bestow the money on the poor, in numerous well-publicized "acts of charity." Evita traveled around in luxurious designer fashions, furs and lavish jewels; she was infatuated w/ Hollywood.
Reigning movie queen Lana Turner saw Evita adopt her look and hair styles---and was alarmed when her jewelry was confiscated so that Evita could get it copied.
Course, I may be a bit cynical (cackle)......but Hollywood coming down hard on Michele's scary Oscar visibility could be reason Obama might be considering ordering the dreaded drones and DHS tanks to roll over Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive, Malibu, and like environs.
Nero planning another party while Rome burns.
Truly, if the past is any indication, this fool has nothing to worry about.
Can I put my plug in for ZZ top now??
Memorial Day sounds like an appropriate venue for this pile of tripe.
This didn't end well in 1789 France.
This is disgusting. I can’t help but feel this administration is pushing the envelope, purposely. The more they get away with without a significant reaction, the easier time they’ll have knowing when to make their ultimate move.
What sequester? Cut off funding for this pretend POTUS.
How come most any Hollywood “Extinction Level Event” movie we see has a black President? Is that racist?
The Wookie will be reading her own poems
Why Carol King? Because everytime Michelle walks by Barry says “I felt the earth move Under my feet.”
It’s all about “dontions”.
The Obama’s, Barack & Michelle are truly, Nero, Caligula, Hitler & Satan combined!!! And....add thugs, criminals, enemies of the state, triators & America haters!!!
And 93% of blacks say “you go boy, you go girl, They be sticken’ it to the whit man!”.
After all that’s what it’s really all about isn’t it? That and destabilizing the general strengh and well being of the country...............while they laugh and laugh.
whit = white
Look at him positioning the hand like some object. I can't imagine the level of discipline it took for that Marine to not snap that smug little chicken s**t’s neck.
Our Marines are truly incredible!
Titanic goin down Whoop whoop!
you`re so vain.....
intrusion? more like an invasion of privacy.
A line-up of liberal’s liberals...the worst part of the seventies are back!
They’re not pushing the envelope, they ARE the envelope.
Nothing can stop them from continuing blithely to keep doing all they’ve managed to get away with for more than 4 years.
It serves as “proof positive” to them and their bitter-end
supporters, in a kind of in-your-face way that THEY are “the ones” who can set us on the proper (mock)-Utopian course where there’s a pot of gold awaiting everyone at the end of the Green Energy rainbow, which WE know will never come, but THEY believe is out there, “soon” to be revealed, if only we would just see the light and roll over for their Agenda.
Their constant partying serves as an implicit celebration that everything they’re doing is something to be celebrated,
with us as the fawning bystanders lucky enough to witness it.
Carole, it looks like “you’ve got a friend” in the WH.
“Over hill over dale, we will hit the party trail, Reconstruction keeps rolling along!” (apologies to the official U.S.Army song!)
They always seem to give these awards non-stop to people who haven’t written one hit song never mind one good song in 40 years. Paul McCartney is the absolute worst. All this idiot has been doing for the pasty 40 years is sing Hey Jude and harangue the masses to eat veggie, and it’s just non stop awards over and over and over and over for this guy. Any other business he would have been run out of town decades ago.
I like Carole King, but when it the last time she had a hit? 1973 when she was 30? So if I had a job and I retired when I was 30, forty years later I should get an award? This is more leftist propaganda, they keep using these awards to promo their agendas like when the worlds worst comedienne Tina Fey imitated Sarah Palin, liberals couldn’t fall over themselves fast enough to give her the Mark Twain prize for humor, an award in the past given to the likes of Neil Simon, George Carlin, WW2 Marine Jonathan Winters, Bill Cosby, Richard Pryor, Carl Reiner. Now if you are a massive leftist like Whoopi Goldberg or Ellen Degenrate *boom* you get the award.
What about Carol Burnett? They mean to tell me these leftist women are more talented than Carol Burnett or a Republican like Goldie Hawn or Teri Garr who have been in the business since the 1960s?? Baloney. I am so sick to death of leftists using awards shows to promo their leftist BS, especially this Kenyan schmuck given the peace prize LOL! For doing NOTHING other than being a commie.
why is this , the white house, our house still closed and why has no one been arrested and lost their pensions over all this corruption?
This is outrageous, I;m sick of it, frigging sick of it, This Govt is corrupt to the core and yet the media is now slacking off their reporting over all of this and trying to still defend him and what does the GOP ever do.
Oh they just do hearings, ask questions to many of the wrong people are being asked . Get oabma out there and question this man and many need to be arrested, lose their pensions and prison time.
most Obama stickers I see which is rear today around here are put on their cars by blacks and I just think racist and dumb.
Most blacks would vote for Obama again if they saw a video of him raping a white old woman shouting kill you cracker b@@@@.
To them he;s an hero, the first non white guy though he is more white than black.
Obama still goes around the country and still gets a decent crowd, yes many are black but there are still dumb white guilt low info vhitey;s out there
Yeah but, who’s winning American Idolatry and Danzing vit der Starz in between commercials for Viagra, Sleeping Pills, and Depends this week?
That’s about the extent of the American McSheeple’s attention span.
I don’t know why you are so jazzed about this. Wasn’t the Obamunist elected on American I-Dull?
I have a patio umbrella I’ll loan to the WH if they will promise to return it in good condition...
Obama can completely destroy “White America” and it will not change the failed destiny or growth of Black Americans!!! In fact: Obama has set Black Americans into permanent poverty, which is his goal. Until the culture of Black America changes, they are going nowhere, no matter whether a slave master like Obama is in power or not!!! What culture you ask??? The culture of the “something for nothing” mindset!!!
Fact is: The Obama “stash” mantra will destroy America very quickly. Just look at cities like Detroit, Cleveland, Philadelphia, etc. Obama has ‘em in economic chains....and that is where they will stay!!! Poor souls don’t have a clue. They just keep aborting their babies by the thousands or shooting themselves in gang and drug wars. That’s the Obama legacy for our Black communities. You can lead a horse to water....but....you cannot make him drink!!!
I wasn’t invited. Were you? Ack, the WH is still closed to the little people.
yep , sadly I agree with you .
Revolt is coming.
Obamas plan another star-studded White House party.
It’s for the media he needs some cover asap and he will get it.
Seems really worried by the scandals, doesn’t he? He knows he has nothing to worry about.
The Monkees were manufactured but somehow those who wrote songs for them in the Brill Building music factory weren’t making “product” for “pop stars”. Music bigotry sucks.
Those who have to be constantly entertained, have few thoughts of their own. To be left in silence or to create and develop their own set of interests or skills, is very foreign to people who must be constantly entertained.

"Let zee peasants eat cake!"
WHO is obama going to invite to this party?
I can’t see a the members of the CBC sitting around listening to Carole King albums.
I didn’t know Carole King was still alive.
Funny this came up today. The other night I was dreaming that I was singing “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” a la Shirelles. When I woke up I asked myself who wrote that great song? And then I remembered it was Carole King, and her singing the song herself. What a talent! But from where she’s coming from, it would be hard to be associated with anything but liberal.
