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!
