For Michelle Obama, the Oscars
were an unbecoming frivolity

Washington Post, by Courtland Milloy

Original Article

Posted By:drive, 2/27/2013 8:54:59 AM

It’s time for first lady Michelle Obama to raise her game. Nothing wrong with telling kids to eat their peas or showing them how to Hula-Hoop. But after four years of focusing on the body, she’d do well to spend these next four on building strong minds. Especially girls’. “If I had the first lady’s ear, I’d say talk more about the kind of education that women and girls — girls of color, in particular — will need to make it in a global economy,” said Avis Jones-DeWeever,

This assumes there was "an intellectually superior Princeton graduate" rather than a woman whose grades have not been published, whose thesis held spelling errors etc. and who gave back her law certification for........? We will never know about this, nor about Obama´s doing the same.......only Bill Clinton had his yanked and they both ducked out prior to being yanked themselves.

But that is not who she is. Intellectually she is very shallow. She is much better smoozing and dancing her way through the day shows like ´The View´.

As a product of the "take your daughter to work" 90´s and mother to a little girl, I´m sick of the focus on educating girls. Enough already. Now if you want to focus on the girls who actally need help, like say, the ones oppressed by Muslim men, then by all means, have at it.

The focus should be on educating black male children - to get over the "acting white" nonsense, to get a good education and work ethic and to learn how to be responsible fathers.

If only the president and Mrs. O would focus on the sad plight of the black male student. So often he is the prey of gangs and of his peers who tell him to succeed is to act white. It´s enough to break my heart. There may be many Dr. Ben Carsons out there, but they get sucked into the thug life.

She and her brother had to sleep in the living room! Horrors! Well, I guess that is one thing she can proudly tell us whe has overcome.

I saw a photo of Michelle in her high school prom gown. The gown was appropriate for a movie star attending some red carpet affair. It´s long skirt had a slit almost to her crouch and a very shaply leg was in view. She looked great but not in good taste.

So Michelle speaks French?? Never heard that before.

Jackie Kennedy spoke French and demonstrated her linguistic fluency (I believe she spoke Spanish as well) on a number of occasions. I suspect if Michelle really did speak a foreign language passably, we´d have heard it by now.

More media nonsense. . .

To say this woman has taken on softball issues while First Lady is putting it lightly. While promoting healthy eating and the value of exercise is all well and good, it´s also very easy and non-controversial. If she really cared-or for that matter, if any liberal really cared-she would be wading hip-deep into the problems of the inner city and the black community, focusing on personal responsibility, the value of self-reliance, intact families with fathers present and accounted for, and education. I don´t hold out much hope, because it sure is easier to hula hoop and hand out Oscars than it is to get your hands dirty in the trenches of real life.

#12 -- Yes! Thank you. No way in the world she spoke French by the 6th grade. How? Wasn´t she in public school? I speak Spanish fluently, but it took years of studying, living overseas and a lot of work (plus a knack for it, and desire) to be able to be fluent. It ticks me off when people make it sound like it´s easy to learn another language.

Thank you, L-Dot family, I´m now done with my rant.

Even being First Lady is not enough for her. She doesn’t know what it means really to achieve anything. She is someone who wants to BE somebody, not DO something.

That hairstyle MO is sporting is the same one I had for my very blonde hair when I was a child. I believe she thinks my life was somehow better than hers. I, too, slept on the couch and was very smart. But nobody ever paid for me to go to Princeton or Harvard.

When you blame whites for everything, sit in a church for decades blaming whites, and obtain everything through affirmative action, why should you take responsibility, have accountability or actually do something worthwhile. It is so much easier to wear jewels and gowns paid by the taxpayers or "donated" by designers, fly on jets all over the world with mom and pals, go on TV everyday, and tell every one else how to live and eat. The Oscars are nothing...as the gravy train starts to get closer to the station in 2014/15, she will be on an upwhirl climb of securing TV and radio gigs, political, social and cultural appointments, books, speaking gigs, designer, perfume, jewelry, make up and wig endorsements, commerical diet food/programs and so forth.

The only thing holding MO back is the security issues surrounding the WH. Once no longer in office, she will be an absolute daily fixture in all aspects of media, and be paid handsomely by the DNC, Hollywood, black groups and other insane liberal groups.

With few exceptions, there´s an awful lot of meowing about Miz Michelle, "intellectually gifted" mentor of the Man Who Never Was.

The problem is that her Oscar appearance isn´t a danger to the country; her ideology that she shares with her husband is the real danger.

What with Michelle, Barack, Valerie, Van, Anita, Cass and others colluding on how best to take America down, we have more important things to concern ourselves with, Mr. Milloy.

If the producers of The Oscars had believed Michelle Obama´s appearance would be a crowd pleaser, they would have announced her appearance days before the show in order to increase their audience.

Does anyone doubt that a pre-Oscar-night announcement of FLOTUS´s appearance would have hurt the show, causing groans and eye-rolling throughout the fruited plain, followed by the worst Oscar ratings in history?

If Michelle Obama were popular in America, she would have been able to attract more than the minuscule ´´crowds´´ who came to see her at her campaign appearances last year, even in solidly Democratic areas.

It´s clear that Michelle Obama is running for something; that she wants maximum public exposure; and that she prevailed on the Oscar producers to include her in their show. And what could the producers do but say yes if they didn´t want their tax returns audited?

There used to be tv show called Soul Train.
The dance participants, all black, would dance to the latest songs.
And at one point in the program, each couple would dance in peculiar ways, showing off really hideous dance steps, in a showing off contest.
Michelle belonged on that show.

FTA: "She ought to be under consideration for a seat on the Supreme Court, not recruited as a presenter in some Hollywood movie contest."

This about a woman who we are constantly told (even in this article) about her intellectual giftedness, her Princeton and Harvard education, her work as an intellectual property lawyer (which she ditched because it was boring, and the law license which she gave up, but no one knows why).

What a load of malarkey.

Why The Feds Chickened Out

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre.

On New Year’s Eve in 2011, software developer Robin Seggelmann was in front of his computer trying to work out some kinks in the security software most of the Internet uses. That’s when he made a mistake, which led to one of the worst bugs ever in the Internet known as “Heartbleed,” a flaw in the security infrastructure (OpenSSL) for a large swath of the Web. Nowadays, it’s unusual for someone to step up and take responsibility, But Seggelmann, a German developer, did just that.

I never wanted to be a pawn in President Obama’s absurd and irresponsible attempt to mandate, regulate and complicate the American health care system. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much of a choice. I was a casualty of Mr. Obama’s Big Lie.

NEW YORK — Millions of passwords, credit card numbers and other personal information may be at risk as a result of a major breakdown in Internet security revealed earlier this week. The damage caused by the "Heartbleed" bug is currently unknown. The security hole exists on a vast number of the Internet´s Web servers and went undetected for more than two years. While it´s conceivable that the flaw was never discovered by hackers, it´s nearly impossible to tell.

Last week Hillary Clinton gave what appeared at first to be a rambling and unfocused answer when asked to name the proudest achievement of her four years as Secretary of State. The short version is, she doesn´t have one. But Clinton´s words make a lot more sense when seen not as a non-answer to a specific question but as an effort to lay the foundation and establish a theme for a presidential campaign. The occasion was her appearance on a panel discussion at the "Women in the World" meeting in Manhattan. It was pretty easy going; the moderator, New York

WASHINGTON — Even when Sylvia Mathews Burwell was in her early 30s, friends speculated that she might return to her native Hinton, W.Va., and run for governor someday. After all, she had been a Rhodes scholar, and her mother — who later became mayor of Hinton, population 2,600 — had driven her daughter’s interest in politics. So far that has not happened, but plenty of other things under two presidents have. On Friday, President Obama is to nominate Ms. Burwell, currently director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, to take over one of the largest and most unwieldy

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
