Watch: Jimmy Fallon Performs ‘The
Evolution Of Mom Dancing’ …With
First Lady Michelle Obama

Mediaite, by Matt Wilstein

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/22/2013 9:26:28 PM

First Lady Michelle Obama is making her second appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Friday night, and as the show wrote on Twitter, they just “couldn’t wait” until tonight to show America this epic segment. The last time the first lady was on the show, she brought Jimmy Fallon to the White House where the two competed in a fitness competition to promote her “Let’s Move” campaign to fight obesity. This time, Obama was on Fallon’s turf. Fallon decided to bring back a classic segment from last year’s Father’s Day, “The Evolution of Dad Dancing,” this time recreated as

Comments:
This one´s a stunner! She is the epitome of such grace, glass and dignity. NOT. I can´t even in my wildest dreams see Laura Bush, Jackie Kennedy, Nancy Reagan, et al behaving in such a low class manner. It´s just unbelievable. You sure can´t take the ghetto out of the girl!

The fringe/bangs on those wigs are gradually getting longer. Natural hair doesn´t grow quite that fast.

Don´t get me started on the First Lady dancing on these public appearances.

For the Nth time in my adult life, I am ashamed of my country (well, the people who voted for these low-life´s anyway).

In any case, I find Jimmy the more attractive of the two.

Yes, Jimmy was really rocking the soccer mom! I agree, this is totally inappropriate behavior for a first lady....however, I have to say, cute outfit and great moves!

The mooch is a disgrace. Is this the way the first lady should conduct herself? And to think during the campaign, Mrs.
Romney was criticized for riding her horse.

Our very own ghetto queen.............I wonder if her kids are proud of her. I´m not!

The bangs get lower because the wig is slipping forward with all her stripper gyrations.

Hideous outfit, of course.

And I´m noticing a cozy relationship between Capitol One, NBC, the WH, Jimmy Fallon and Alec Baldwin. Hmmm..... CapOne ought to dump those two idiots and just use Kylie, the little red-haired girl. I wonder how much interest on my charges go to pay those morons.

I guess the concepts of dignity and pride are lost on this first lady. Sad, so very very sad. But then I guess she didn´t roll her eyes and say "feets, don´t fail me now". Pathetic.

Ghetto trash from the get-go. The moral and cultural decay that´s invading our country is moving faster and faster at the urging of our current administration. Wonder what O and grandma think of this behavior - probably encourage it. But the daughters, at their ages, are perhaps very embarrassed (at least I hope so) - most young teens want their parents to behave decently, not act like some teeny-bopper. And those bangs, almost covering her eyes - yikes! This woman needs to grow up.

You can´t buy grace and class.

To them... it´s all about THEM not dignity of Country.

The wighat situation has also reached the absurd. When those bangs go up and down, straight across then higher in the middle or above one eye, it is more than positioning on her head (although that could contribute). She has a pile of these puppies and they are not exactly alike. Silly woman thinks we don´t notice.

I remember when her psychofans used to talk about her cute haircut (chin length bob), and the next day she´d have a shoulder length do, and on and on.

Her real hair - what´s left of it after all the overprocessing that went on in her early WH days with that tony hairdresser from Chicago - is probably still fuzzy wisps, hiding under a succession of wighats.

This look is not at all flattering. That´s fine.

My mom used to amuse us kids by doing the twist & her early childhood tap-dancing routines on the tile kitchen floor. I had an aunt who upon request, would do the "turkey walk" on her elbows & was also flexible enough to lock her hands & feet behind her head & roll around in circles on the floor. It was good clean fun & we kids loved it. However, I wouldn´t want them doing this in public on TV. Her daughters are probably quite embarrassed!

I can only compare this video and Mooche´s lack of grace and class to my mom who is an amazing ballroom dancer who can actually dress herself. It took a few years to get used to my mom dancing down the aisles at the grocery store (when a good song was on and it wasn´t crowded), but she didn´t make a fool of herself on national tv.

I´m sorry, I must have missed something. Like the point of this video and of "mom dancing". It´s juvenile, not funny, not dancing, expresses no creativity nor particular talent, is repetitive and not even fun.

More to the point, she is supposed to be the First Lady of the United States of America, not a publicity-seeking, lackluster, plain, talentless opportunit with no respect for the position she holds.

If Obama knew about this, why didn´t he suggest she not lower herself? Is it because neither of them can get any lower?

Not an admirer of Michelle O. She´s a verifiable America-hater. Nonetheless, her little dance performance is far less offensive than Laura Bush´s "blue" joke during a nationally televised banquet some years ago.

I got a lot of grief on this site for criticizing Mrs. Bush´s donkey joke, but sorry, it was so over the line into obscenity, it was ridiculous that anyone defended it.

But then, I confess to being a non-fan of every first lady since Grace Coolidge.

My wife saw this and was horrified that
the First Lady of the United States
was bumping and grinding on national tv .
The Obamas do not have any class or sense of propriety.
You´ll never see Kate Middleton behaving like Michelle Obama.
The last First Lady was Laura Bush.
This woman is just Obama´s spouse
or does that title really belong to Reggie Love ?
If Obama feels free to cavort with Reggie Love
and Michelle is pelvic thrusting in just the second month of this term...one can hardly imagine the public behavior and debasement and excess these three
will feel free to engage
in by the end of the fourth year.
Who knew a POTUS and FLOTUS would need a TV-MA warning with sub -ratings for D, S, L and V ????

Notice Jimmy Fallon eyes? They are hal way up his skull. It is a sign of a drug user. He also does not look like a nice guy as his face always has that smirk of derision on it.

When Jay Leno leaves this guy gets to take over. Him, Jimmy Kimmel... no talent, no morals.

As you may recall, Fallon´s house band, the Roots, played a slanderous and profane introductory tune to another Michele (Bachmann) as she walked out on Fallon´s stage last fall.
http://tinyurl.com/aunksxc
Why the band wasn´t fired for that I´ll never understand, but then again, it is NBC.

One wonders what kind of liberties the band took in selecting appropriate welcome music for Michelle Obama... An entirely appropriate, respectful and even keister-kissing selection, I´m sure.

She is not the one who is screwing the country up, it is her husband. If she wants to dance on TV let her, she is the queen and it´s good to be queen. Me I would be happy if gas was under $3 a gallon and the Congress could pass an actual budget that was not a laugh.

If you posters can be this venomous now I cannot imagine what you´re going to be saying at the end of the impostors 2nd term. She isn´t the problem, he is. Take it out on him and leave her and her kids alone. I don´t like him and don´t much care for her, but some of the above comments are downright embarrassing. Would your mother approve? I don´t think so. My mom used to say if you can´t say something nice don´t say anything at all.

No Michelle is not her own person right now. She is paid substantially and financilly supported for her representation at home and more importantly abroad solely by taxpayer dollars. No spouse of the leaders all over the world have ever publically portrayed themselves in such a shocking way.

Has nothing to do with her looks, her race, her age, her clothing (although always totally hideous), but with her blatant and hostile disrespect for the American people.

If she and her husband want to turn their own private home into a ghetto-thug rap trap, that is their business. However, it is OUR business when they want to flaunt it world-wide on our dime.

The SPLC’s Attack on Rush
Limbaugh, David Horowitz, and Me
PJ Media, by Ron Radosh    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 10:01:12 PM     Post Reply
The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran Refuses to Pull Terrorist
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 9:55:46 PM     Post Reply
Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

Politico: Dr. Ben Carson´s Talent
Doesn´t Lead to ´Elevated or Even

NewsBusters, by Tim Graham    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 9:47:27 PM     Post Reply
At Politico Magazine, writer and physician James Hamblin tried to answer the question "Who is Dr. Ben Carson?" After describing how he became a "darling of the right-wing media" after calling out President Obama at a prayer breakfast, Hamblin tried to explain how he speaks in "over the top" language about America in decline. But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

Obama’s Malaysia Trip
Includes Visit to a Mosque
Cybercast News Service, by Patrick Goodenough    Original Article

When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign.

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

Secretary of State John Kerry called Earth Day today “proof that the steadfast determination of millions is powerful enough to change the course of history.” “I still remember participating in the very first Earth Day back in 1970,” Kerry said in a statement this afternoon. “It helped to unleash a wave of grassroots activism that ultimately led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and landmark laws like the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. This Earth Day we need to consider new ways to unleash a new wave of activism to tackle today’s long list

When she was secretary of state, Hillary Clinton instituted a Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review. The first one was completed in December 2010. Nearly four years later, AP reporter Matt Lee asked State Department Jen Psaki to name one thing that Clinton’s QDDR accomplished. Just one. She can’t. LEE: “Off the top of your head, can you name one tangible achievement that the last QDDR resulted in?” PSAKI: “Well Matt, obviously it’s in an extensive, expansive process.” LEE: “So no.” PSAKI: “We’re looking at how it was done last time.” LEE: “Just one.” PSAKI: “I know, I’m making an important

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration
