UGH! Live feed with Michelle Obama with a short speech and to announce the Best Picture winner - Argo. The circle stays unbroken. Oh well, I just watch it for the fashion.

You're kidding, right? Couldn't she spend her time better attempting to free the Pakastani Dr. who helped us find Bin Laden or our American Pastor, both of whom are being tortured?

What a self indulgent free political appearance to an audience expecting to watch film awards. The Oscars should be free of all politicians, that's not what they are about. Michelle you should be ashamed.

The Oscars is all political, I have never watched it, because the leftists always drop their spiel in the acceptance. George Clooney's speech was one of the nastiest a few years back.

Every TV on the Oscars, is an implicit vote for the left.

Both of them would jump into a vat of puke if either thought it would appeal to any of the lowest common denominators found in any of the grievance identity groups.

Even the leftist Hollywood press gets it:

"As if Hanoi Jane weren’t fuel enough. Oh My God - the Academy actually fans the fire by drafting First Lady Michelle Obama to help present Best Picture from presumably the White House? So unnecessary and inappropriate to inject so much politics into the Oscars yet again. Hollywood will get pilloried by conservative pundits for arranging this payoff for all the campaign donations it gave the President’s reelection campaign. I don’t understand this very obvious attempt to infuriate right-leaning audiences. Clearly the studios only want to sell their movies to only half of America. And here I’d thought Spielberg had overreached at the Golden Globes by bringing Bill Clinton onstage…"

To the leftists in Hollywood, we have no right to legitimacy for our own views, so rubbing it in is OK.

"Loud Groans" Heard in Academy Awards Media Room When Michelle Obama Announced As Surprise Presenter

Also, this morning it's being reported that the Michelle Obama hijack, last night, was part of a failed effort on the part of Harvey Weinstein to get Hollywood's Obama voters to vote for Silver Linings Playbook for Best Picture.

Naked DC has that story.

The Academy told US Weekly that they approached the First Lady for a part in the annual telecast, but that’s not the whole story. Donor and mega-producer Harvey Weinstein broached the subject with the Oscar producers several weeks ago, and then chartered Disney’s private corporate jet (which they probably get a tax credit for) to fly the producers out to DC, where they met with Weinstein, his daughter and the First Lady’s staff. They then brought Jack Nicholson into the mix and the rest is history.

Weinstein’s motivation was not entirely political, if you can believe it. Weeks ago, he hired the Obama campaign’s public relations “genius” Stephanie Cutter to lobby the Academy to vote for Weinstein’s movie Silver Lining’s Playbook, apparently unaware of the extraordinary talent Stephanie Cutter repeatedly exhibited during the actual Presidential campaign. Cutter then used her social media influence to push for the movie with the legions of Academy voters who pay strict attention to the Twitter ramblings of their favorite campaign team.

I do not get why Michelle is so popular. Were talking about a woman who is known to be to the left of her husband. Not to mention ugly.

Or that she has actual staffers, for a position that does not actually exist in the Constitution.(For the leftists, I would be angry if Ann Romney had staffers as well)

And in before a leftists rips the breitbart link on "friends of hamas"

Weinstein hired the experts at vote-buying and -stealing.
Looks like he took action a little too late, though.
Obama has campaigned for 7 straight years.

Oh right wing heads explode again...Que sera..If it had been Laura Bush or Sarah pukelin you rightists would have been praising the Oscars.

It seeems to me that your blind racist hatred cant stomach the fact that MO is a poised well-spoken and vocal First Mom. Having a strong black woman standing by and supportive of her family and country just burns you up inside doesnt it..let it burn I say cuz theres not much substance to you GOPers anyway

Poised?

Well spoken?

Vocal?


Even the left is calling it "Obama fatigue." These grifters need to stay out of the entertainment limelight and he needs to do his damned job. Nothing "racist" about that.

I liked her appearance prior to entering the White House the first time, one big eyebrow, like David Axelrod.

REVEALED: Military Members Used as Props by Michelle Obama During Oscars Were Blinking Coded Messages

via Doug Ross

An exclusive analysis by Cub Reporter Biff Spackle reveals that members of the military conscripted by First Lady Michelle Obama for her Oscar appearance were blinking coded messages.

Three of the four military personnel were, according to a computer-based analysis, using Morse code to signal the public that they were being forced to appear as props against their will.

This analysis can exclusively reveal the following:

- One male service member appears to have signaled: E-X-T-R-E-M-E P-A-I-N S-T-O-P

- A female service member repeatedly blinked: P-L-E-A-S-E S-E-N-D R-E-S-C-U-E P-A-R-T-Y S-T-O-P

- And another serviceman signaled: S-H-E N-E-E-D-S H-E-R O-W-N D-A-M-N V-A-R-I-E-T-Y S-H-O-W M-A-K-E I-T S-T-O-P

The use of military members for the First Lady's commercial appearance raised the specter of impropriety according to Beltway insiders.

Longtime Hollywood insider Sparkles Malloy observed that, "if the Obamas really want to break the record for most television appearances, they ought to at least move to Los Angeles."
