Michelle Obama’s Oscar
presentation raises questions
about the role of a first lady

Washington Post, by Krissah Thompson

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 2/25/2013 10:49:20 PM

Is this what Michelle Obama looks like untethered to the pressure of a campaign? Is she free to follow her whims without worries about political backlash? The first lady became the buzz of the weekend when she beamed into the Academy Awards from the White House to present the award for best picture with Hollywood legend Jack Nicholson. Attendees and viewers were flabbergasted at the satellite image of the elegantly dressed Obama, flanked by young service members in full regalia, opening the envelope to name Ben Affleck’s “Argo” the winner.

Personally, I think it demeans the position of First Lady to be involved in "pop" culture and their glorified self aggranizing awards, which is all the Oscars really are. But then, Michelle Obama demeans the position of First Lady all the time.

She may be a nice lady, but she is just way too rough on the eyes and ears. Maybe float check the "Cousin It" wig, and do some real and meaningful charity work, away from the boot lick media and the spontaneous adoring crowds.

The Os are celebrities in their own minds. And in the minds of most of their voters it would seem.

Other than laughing how lame the award ceremonies are, (we watch it every year just to make fun of the clown clothes, makeup and speeches), MO topped it off...with her "Moe" hair cut, sans "Curly and Larry", facade Military back drop when clearly our soldiers were agonizing being around her (of whom she detests), and regurgitating the speech of which she has delivered countless times regarding her "Lets Move" campaign to get federal funds for school lunches to teach kids how to eat.

In my opinion, MO, as role of the first unlady...please go on TV and every where else to show how you do not represent any woman with class, confidence and actual earned success.

She has not made any contributions to the motion picture industry, so she cannot become a member of the academy, and has never been awarded an Oscar. All the above are required by the academy (see their website) by way of rule and/or tradition to be a best picture presenter. So she should not have been there. By inviting her, the Hollywood high mucky mucks told the world that the academy is just another liberal Democrat political constituency group.

If Nancy Reagan, while first lady, had been an oscar presenter it would not have bothered me as she is an academy member and therefore a voter. Oh silly me I forgot she´s not a member of the right political party!

She can do what she wants, she´s just a private citizen MARRIED to an officeholder. A "First Lady" like a nickel doesn´t officially exist. It´s a throwback to the time when a woman´s rank was as her husband´s baggage. She needs to be reminded of that hourly apparently. In fact as soon as the first woman entered any of the three branches of government, the whole idea should have been scrapped. Why the heck should a Supreme Court Justice or Speaker of the House take a back seat to some woman with a marriage license? We´ll revisit this when the first married woman is elected President, and it won´t be pretty.
OT:My offense is at this civilian has somehow been allowed to press U.S. military personnel into service in support of a purely commercial venture at the behest of a large political donor. What´s next? Drone strikes on the Weinstein´s neighbor´s yappy dog?

Somehow when she showed up in Grant Park in that ludicrous Black Widow Spider dress, we knew it would come to this.

However, this will not stop her from going for a new low.

I think she and they (the Academy) can do whatever they want, but the chips will fall as they may.

The same was true with the Dixie Chicks. You have to realize that the audience did NOT tune in for politics.

Let´s see how the viewers react next year. I am already turned off by Hollywood, but I did watch for about an hour. Next year, I will probably not watch at all.

After awhile, you do get tired of this stuff. I am very tired of the Obama´s.

In over 200 years, the USA has had but 44 presidents.
The Obamas apparently fail to grasp the significance that being elected as president makes one very special.
Yet, they seem to be constantly begging for our attention in the same way an insecure teenager acts out.
By appearing on commercial TV while rubbing hips with a comedian who is desperate to sell advertising, Mrs. Obama tarnishes what is special about her position as wife of the president.
Same thing goes when she appears (with an extremely small bodice) on a self serving commerical entertainment venue like the Oscars.

It was a very classless act by a buffoonish black woman who thinks she is better than everyone else in America. She didn´t have the decency to even mention or introduce the military members she was using as a prop. Just another example of how there are two sets of rules in America: if you are a conservative, you will be crucified like Christ on a Cross for the smallest of slip-ups and faux paus actions. If you are a liberal Democrat, you get accolades galore and you can get caught with live boys and/or dead girls and it doesn´t make any difference because you will be lionized as a hero for "voting the right way".

What a badly written article. Astonishngly incoherent. You can tell the "reporterette" just can´t bring herself to write a critical article about her hero, Moochelle, being an overexposed publicity hound who is finally starting to generate the disgust of even some of the propaganda reporters in the media that she so richly deserves. If the Post was a real newspaper the author of this article would have been fired on the spot by her editor when she turned in this piece for publication.

Since nothing worthy comes out of Hollywood, I thought it extremely fitting to have the Queen of Wigdom present the best picture. It is an award bestowed upon the work product of a group of individuals whose very existence relies on their ability to portray individuals in situations that confirm their own belief system. They will be worthy of an award when they make an honest film on the life of Mohammed. Until then, it is all just a big dress up party giving out awards to fellow narcissists.

"He usually has a messiah complex. He is very self-centered. He is like a "school bully" who is very unruly. He does not respect the rights of others. He uses mass meetings to intimidate his "scapegoat" and rally people to join his ranks. These mass meetings have much pomp and power displayed in them. It is not uncommon for these mass meetings to have uniformed fully-armed guards around them. They like to display their "power" in a massive parade for all to see. This strikes fear into those who would refuse to get out of his way. He can never get enough. He is obsessed with ruling the whole world."....Howard Wright
Another characteristic of a tyrant: "Invasive, intrusive, and obnoxious."
Not only is Obama a tyrant....Michelle is right there with him. She is unhappy, feels wronged, angry, and she needs a lot of attention.

Thank goodness I was watching 13 episodes of "House of Cards" - a Netflicks series about fictional Congressional Representatives and their egos and a reporter who wants to get the "big dirty" story. Every Congress critter seems to have an ulterior motive for every vote.

At least the zombies in la-la land may be questioning the Mooche´s "invasion". It´s like Neil Armstrong said when he stepped out onto the moon:"That´s one small step for man..."
This may be a watershed moment regarding Michelle and the MSM: "That´s one small question for fawners".

The question is will they take another step or two before 2014 and 2016? A smart reporter would realize that a Pulitzer might be there for asking good questions which reveal things the powerful in DC want covered up.

Is every event in the U.S. a state event? The military had no reason to be there other than a show of force to the subjects. Why does she and her husband push in on non political and pop culture news and occasions?

I could have tolerated (barely) her appearance if she had used the opportunity to emphasize with the servicemembrs standing in the background that two of the best picture nominees show how the US military has contributed to this country; the Union troops who fought, bled and died to save the union (Lincoln) and how the military and its civilian counterparts in the foreign service put their lives at risk stationed oveseas (Argo - okay - bit of a stretch), but instead we get her vacuous comments about how we all can overcome...

Other than The Passion of the Christ, every movie I´ve seen in the theater in the last 12 years has been made in England or New Zealand - Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings.

If enough of us boycott ALL Hollywood productions, maybe they won´t be able to afford to hold the Oscars next year. Maybe they won´t even be able to afford to make movies. That would be a good thing.

To tactlessly exploit members of America’s Military, by using them strictly as window dressing, was the ultimate insult. To not introduce or even acknowledge them was, at best, thoughtless. Along with a host of other awkward, inappropriate behavior, our First Family is also quite tone-deaf.

When I first saw her emerge from the glare of Bollywood glitz and fill the TV Screen, I thought OMG its another Obama Nobel Prize moment only this time it´s a surprise Oscar for Dancing (Hiphop, Gangnam, Booty Pick, etc. )Then she almost ripped off a fingernail and there it was, The Best Picture. A stunning moment as the gold braided military enthusiastically realized that this was the highlight of their career, national exposure..... for service to their country. A new medal will be created by the Obama´s to commemorate this moment. Can anyone out there name this award?

Here is a prediction for you - she will run in 2016 against Hillary. They will not give up the power and perks and once Hillary starts running she will have to distance herself from this administration and they won´t be able to take it. They think they have this magic database, but it´s really their Chicago style / thug / union thug fraud machine that got him re-elected and they will use it again.

With all due respect to fellow poster #2, much of what the Obama´s know is pop culture, bubblegum royalty and faux issues. So--dating myself greatly--we need more Bess Truman-type first ladies!

From sitting down with late night entertainment show hosts to knee-bending kiss-kiss of Hollywood nobodies, there is a long list of demeaning behavior by the Obamas. Here, she was more properly dressed than when she wore short-shorts getting into and out of the presidential limo.

I find it amazing that Hollywood, the center of the world for fornication, drug use, self-indugence and illicit and perverted lifestyles, can find comradery and unity with the Obamas and the Obamas with Hollywood.

We live in a very sick society and these sickos have taken over the country.

with the 1,812 flag draped coffins that have returned to Dover AFB since her husband was inaugurated ???
Or those of Ambassador Stevens , Glen Doherty, Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods ?
This was her most offensive and inappropriate act... to date.
And we are just two months into the second term.

Just makes me DOUBLY GLAD that I never watch.

Here is what chaffs me - the Leftist nimrods who have equated GW Bush´s "nation healing" appearance on the Oscars (after 9/11/2001) with this BLATANT political appearance by a celebutard wanna-be.

The FLOTUS orangutan is a national embarrassment and the only justification for her insinuation into this miserable night would have been if she was accepting an oscar for their Planet of the Apes home movies. So, Jack Nicholson is now on my list having behaved like another toady tossing to the the bow legged amazon who suddenly loomed in full regalia complete with bangs that stop just above her six inch teeth and lantern jaw. This hideous woman looked like a fool, sounded like a fool, and that must be because she is a fool who´s kidding no one.

Michelle Obama Unchained. She just cannot wait until 2016 so she can assume her rightful position as talk show host. Creepy, creepy, creepy. No end in sight. At least it looks like she realizes she could never amount to anything a real attorney would aspire to: Senator? No. Thank God. Sad. Does she even recognize how she proves the point about Affirmative Action? Or does she revel in what it brought her? And she is just nothing more than the wife! (She allegedly had divorce papers drawn up at least once).

I don´t see why we should get all exercised over this. This sort of thing has become the norm. Americans are being squeezed by their policies and life for them is one big party. We knew they were snakes when we picked them up. Unfortunately a slight majority of Americans like being snake bit. And after all this going on, nobody is asking questions about Benghazi or sequestration or anything else.
Mission accomplished.

Considering what oscar´s have become we shouldn´t be commenting on them.
first lady? what first lady? Of course we have to pay attention to what obozos are doing - our well being (most likely, ill being) depends on what they do. oscars? don´t care. She can comment on the awards for the best gay/lesbian/transgender movie - still don´t care.

I really don´t care what this woman does. I despised her before her Oscar appearance and still do. Liberals eat this stuff up because they seem to think it´s better to have a Hip Hop President who is perceived as ´cool´ than one who is competent and loves his country. Especially one who hands out goodies paid for with Other People´s Money.

I barely go to the movies now. But, with the Wookie´s appearance and the obvious politicization I will never, ever set foot in a movie theatre again. I am so sick of Hollywood, the nauseous fawning articles such as the one above of the main stream media and I am sick of this disgusting president and his ugly wife. Will this nightmare never end?

Those young officers are White House social aides who volunteer to serve in that position in addition to their regular duties. I would imagine they´re thrilled to be in the White House. Further, you have to be single so it´s a great place to meet people. Lynda Bird Johnson met her husband Captain Charles Robb, USMC while he was a White House social aide.

when i read all of the comments about the obamas and their terrible behavior and what bo has done to ruin this country, i hope every ldotter voted for romney. it´s the people who complain bitterly about obama(s) but didn´t vote because romney was mormon, not conservative enough, flip flopper, whatever who get my goat. if all the republicans, conservatives and libertarians who didn´t vote had, we would have a dignified, smart and able man in the white house now.

On Thursday, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius resigned her position. The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

Contempt and the IRS

The House Oversight Committee has voted to hold former IRS subpotentate Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress, while the House Ways and Means Committee has referred her case to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution. The facts in the case suggest very strongly that Ms. Lerner has earned the contempt of the American people as well as criminal prosecution to the full extent of the law. The question of whether Justice will do justice now rests with the Obama administration, in service to which Ms. Lerner organized and oversaw the repression of nonprofit activists under color of IRS authority. That

Another day, another chronicle of Democratic Party malfeasance. Enjoy: In Congress, Rep. Darrell Issa of California has just leveled an explosive charge against his Democrat counterpart on the House Oversight and Government Reform committee — to wit, that the gentleman from Maryland colluded with the IRS to harass a conservative organization fighting for honest elections: Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, non-profit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud.The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS

With the rocky rollout of his health care law in a post-deadline lull, President Obama will move this week to shake up his health care team, accepting the resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and tapping his budget director as a troubleshooting replacement, the White House confirmed Thursday. Mrs. Sebelius, a former Kansas governor who has served as HHS secretary for Mr. Obama’s entire tenure, was the president’s point person as his signature law stumbled out of the blocks in October. Despite calls for her to be fired, Mrs. Sebelius stayed on the job to oversee a

A few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice’s tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government — a very old debt. When Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise. Until the kids turned 18, Sadie Grice got survivor benefits from Social Security to help feed and clothe them.

Two months ago, a petition bearing more than 110,000 signatures was delivered to The Post, demanding a ban on any article questioning global warming. The petition arrived the day before publication of my column, which consisted of precisely that heresy. The column ran as usual. But I was gratified by the show of intolerance because it perfectly illustrated my argument that the left is entering a new phase of ideological agitation — no longer trying to win the debate but stopping debate altogether, banishing from public discourse any and all opposition. The proper word for that attitude is totalitarian. It

A Divisive Attorney General

Attorney General Eric Holder must be suffering from a sort of amnesia. He is upset at supposed divisiveness and rudeness directed at him when testifying before Congress, and suggests not too subtly that he and President Obama have been accorded inordinately harsh treatment (fill in the blanks why). Aside from the fact that he seemed to have relished the combat with Representative Gohmert in quite unprofessional tones (“you don’t want to go there, buddy, alright?”/ “good luck with your asparagus”), he seems to forget what former attorney general Alberto Gonzales once endured both in the liberal media and before Democrats

If you have not yet heard, Brandeis University has rescinded its offer of an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the Somali-born activist whose work has focused on the barbaric misogyny rampant in Islamic societies like the one in which she was raised—and whose efforts to call attention to them as a legislator in the Netherlands led to a political crisis there and her eventual flight to the United States. Given that it only takes a Google search to find out everything one would need to know about her, including the controversial aspects of her views, it is disgustingly laughable

When Chief Justice John Roberts rewrote ObamaCare from the bench in order to save it, most of the ramifications were immediately apparent. But there was one aspect of the stunt that as a member of the Supreme Court Roberts should have been sensitive to: precedent. Having caved to a public intimidation campaign from the president and his congressional allies (as well as the media) Roberts signaled that the way to get a conservative justice to discard his better judgment and rule against constitutional law was to impugn the court’s reputation in the public square.

Sen. Mark Begich has said repeatedly that he thinks President Obama is wrong about a host of policies, whether on oil drilling, the military or the environment. Begich also has made it perfectly clear that he has no interest in having his fellow Democrat out to his home state of Alaska, saying earlier this year that he doesn’t “care to have him campaign for me.” But that doesn’t mean he’s not looking for the president’s help. Begich has in fact submitted a long wish list to the Obama administration for agency decisions that he thinks would boost his reelection chances.

A leading gay blogger has accused the movement of displaying the same intolerance activists accuse their opponents of practicing, while

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment,” Pelosi told a Politico reporter. “It’s really a black mark,” said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during World War II after Japan’s sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor. Pelosi also urged Obama
