I suppose it does make sense that one of the Obamas should feel compelled to make an appearance as a thank-you. After all, about 98 percent of the people in that audience supported them:

The Academy Awards suddenly turned into the Michelle Obama Oscars when Jack Nicholson told the audience a special guest was joining him to present Best Picture.

“Argo” won the award, which the First Lady read off an envelope while being paged in to Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre.

“[These films] taught us that love can beat all odds,” Obama said. “They reminded us that we can overcome any obstacle if we dig deep enough and fight hard enough and find the courage within ourselves.”

Some were thrilled, while others did not find a Love Connection:

Update: Michelle “someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more” Obama is still holding on to her pie:

Michelle helped present the award live from the White House wearing an “armor-like“ beaded metallic gown. The silver sparkler was a custom design by Naeem Khan with an estimated price tag of $8,990.

Barack & Michelle never miss an opportunity to lead by example.

Iran was offended as well. But I think for a different reason.

    IT`S A BLITZ !!

    Everywhere you look, it`s either pro- or anti- Barry & Mooch ads. "Do you support the President`s agenda ?" No surprise then that the "Bangs" would bring their wearer to the Oscars to show themselves off ! What / Who was she wearing and and how much did it cost ? Who cares, just look at those bangs ….. and those ARMS !!

    Pat, Stu and Glenn Beck have a thing goin`; they do not mention the pResident`s name on air. If they do, they must put $20.00 in the kitty. That`s an idea that should go viral !

  2. Truesoldier__ on February 25th, 2013 2:38 pm

    No surprise at all. Think about it for a moment, you have a 4 hour awards show dedicated to boosting the already inflated ego's of the Hollywood Elite. It is no surprise that one of the most inflated ego's in DC would crash the awards show in an attempt to make it all about them.

  3. SignPainterGuy on February 25th, 2013 3:09 pm

    "….. It is no surprise that one of the most inflated ego's in DC would crash the awards show in an attempt to make it all about them. " "Them ?"

    Oh yeah, the bangs, the arms, the dress and Moo !

    Sir, that was my biggest problem w/ FN ever since the 2010 mid's. We all know His name and reputation thankyouverymuch! My ISP ( Frontier ) can't go a full hour without linking an O'rticle.

  5. Truesoldier__ on February 25th, 2013 3:23 pm

    I loved that ida that Glenn, Pat and Stu have going, but I figured I would take it a different direction and steal a page from the lib play book. That is why I have started calling him 'dear leader' everytime I mention him. It is far better to have images of a communist leader associated with him than it is to just ignore him.

  6. Marshall_Will on February 25th, 2013 3:27 pm

    And how convenient they'd have all the programming time in the world to allow her exactly that!? Their level of media saturation/penetration exceeds that of any banana republic.

    In the end though, it really is defensive/preventative. Allowing for an entire newscycle sans O's would be to invite disaster. They're riding the tiger now. I remember Marcos giving near daily national addresses where he was fading in and out of consciousness just to fill the airwaves and quell dissent. Even if it meant reading out of the phonebook.

  7. Truesoldier__ on February 25th, 2013 3:30 pm

    Politico had a great article the other day about this very subject. It was enttitled "Obama: The Puppet Master":


  8. SignPainterGuy on February 25th, 2013 3:48 pm

    Commenting at my local paper w/s and on Michael Ramirez`s cartoons, libs go nuts at me for calling him and any libs by nicknames we use all the time. I NEVER use their proper names and it gets me attacked a lot ! It`s just so easy and fun ! :-)

    But WE are supposed to show respect for the office-holder ! Just like they did ? http://www.desertlover.com/ (at the bottom) Yep, THAT`s respect !

  9. Truesoldier__ on February 25th, 2013 3:56 pm

    O/T….It appears dear leader has been caught using Twitter 'spambots' to claim support for anti gun legislation:

    Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) accused Obama of trying to make support for his position look stronger than it really is by flooding Twitter with messages from people who don't exist.

    "Obama's anti-gun campaign is a fraud," Stockman said. "Obama's supporters are panicking and willing to do anything to create the appearance of popular support, even if it means trying to defraud Congress," he added. "I call upon the president to denounce this phony spam campaign."


  10. Marshall_Will on February 25th, 2013 3:59 pm

    Great article. Too bad they're not saying anything we haven't for the last 5 years. They're just now putting together the Friday Doc. Dumps? Geez, Doug and Michelle have been doing that w/ the bulldozer image for years!

    Many posters noted below the O'rticle that many in the media brought this upon themselves. Politico repeatedly pointed out "cash strapped news organizations" ( and we can't imagine why? )

  11. SignPainterGuy on February 25th, 2013 4:01 pm

    O`rticle … heh, good one; like O`Stration !

  12. SignPainterGuy on February 25th, 2013 4:06 pm

    Yeah, hold yer breath for him or them to "denounce" it ! They`ll change it to more creative names at most ! They aren`t about to stop !

    They did the same thing w/ fake FaceBook accounts.

  13. Truesoldier__ on February 25th, 2013 4:07 pm

    I just found it remarkable that they are 'going public' with the info. I also noticed that right after this article was published dear leader had an off the record private meeting with members of the WH press corps. Politico was left off the invite list (dear leader even invited a foxnews rep to this one). Looks like someone was miffed and sending a message.

    Makes me wonder what message they will send to Candy Crowley over her line of questions to Ray LaHood (from Doug's post over the weekend)?

  14. Truesoldier__ on February 25th, 2013 4:09 pm

    No kidding. The only thing I could see happening is dear leader throwing some staffer under the bus and hiring someone with a bit more creativity and ability to cover their tracks to replace them.

  15. SignPainterGuy on February 25th, 2013 4:10 pm

    And to the woman on CNN who said the sequester crisis was manufactured by Obama !

  16. Marshall_Will on February 25th, 2013 4:13 pm

    We're best off assuming anything this WH does in conjunction w/ technology/media is fraudulent and/or misrepresented. My guess would be the 6 Tweets that were 'legit' more likely from sycophants and paid staffers/lifelong Dims etc. than "broad based 'support' ".

  17. SignPainterGuy on February 25th, 2013 4:15 pm

    I think WE are really wondering who is the Puppet Master`s MASTER ?

  18. Marshall_Will on February 25th, 2013 4:41 pm

    'going public'

    True enough, any improvement would be good news at this point. In reading between the lines, they're essentially forming their *own* 'media' and stuffing the distribution channel w/ favorable fluff pieces and targeted messaging.

    But how different is this than say, record labels pushing their latest boy band of the month? You can push on a string for awhile but eventually they'll have to put out a 2nd album. Funny thing is; you can use this pResident's image to sell everything but uh… him!

  19. Truesoldier__ on February 25th, 2013 4:44 pm

    Now that is the $1 million question.

  20. JetHeadJoe on February 25th, 2013 4:55 pm

    Mrs O's bangs are a good start. She need to grow them to Rapunzel-like length, though. They'll mask all of her save for those *ahem* fabulous pythons.

    It's now official. We don't have politicians anymore. They think of themselves as celebrity and not public servants.

  21. Marshall_Will on February 25th, 2013 5:15 pm


    MM mentioned at Twitchy that reporters openly groaned during FLTOUS 'stunt'. Then Michelle invited them to just MOVE to Hollywood and get it over with? Which pretty much sums it up for the brunt of us.

    Hell, probably even Liberals.

  22. Marshall_Will on February 25th, 2013 5:28 pm

    OT but just, OH, WOW!

    Detroit — Nearly half of the owners of Detroit's 305,000 properties failed to pay their tax bills last year, exacerbating a punishing cycle of declining revenues and diminished services for a city in a financial crisis, according to a Detroit News analysis of government records.

    The News reviewed more than 200,000 pages of tax documents and found that 47 percent of the city's taxable parcels are delinquent on their 2011 bills. Some $246.5 million in taxes and fees went uncollected, about half of which was due Detroit and the rest to other entities, including Wayne County, Detroit Public Schools and the library.

    Delinquency is so pervasive that 77 blocks had only one owner who paid taxes last year, The News found.

  23. JetHeadJoe on February 25th, 2013 5:33 pm

    Actually, this is FABULOUS! We can move to Galt's Gulch without even moving. Hell, if every Tea Party member didn't pay his/her taxes we could point to Detroit and say "Hey! How come half the city doesn't live in jail?" Then, once the government gets the message, maybe they'll cut spending…oh wait…I bet this has yet to happen in Detroit.

  24. Marshall_Will on February 25th, 2013 5:41 pm


    Oh I agree! Good for THEM. The streetlights aren't repaired, the potholes in the road look like tank traps and… the cops never show when CALLED. Sounds like the City got exactly what was coming to them..!

    I know Jennifer Granholm is all OVER this. Although Detroit probably voted 95% for the incumbent, lots of these homeowners are probably decent folks that have been in these homes for YEARS. These are the ones that decided to tough it out and THIS is how they're treated!

    Too bad we couldn't get them to see the light Nationally? I predicted this type of civil disobedience would be cropping up but, um… thought it would be more like Orange County etc.

  25. Truesoldier__ on February 25th, 2013 5:44 pm

    And now it has been discovered that dear leader is selling access to him for $500k:

    Giving or raising $500,000 or more puts donors on a national advisory board for Mr. Obama’s group and the privilege of attending quarterly meetings with the president, along with other meetings at the White House. Moreover, the new cash demands on Mr. Obama’s top donors and bundlers come as many of them are angling for appointments to administration jobs or ambassadorships.

    “This just looks bad–it looks like the White House is selling access,” Todd said Monday. “It’s the definition of selling access. If you believe money has a strangle hold over the entire political system this is ceding the moral high ground.”

    I'd like to thank my spouse for intercepting the remote before I launched it through the TV screen.

    Thanks honey – xoxo, ObB

  27. Truesoldier__ on February 25th, 2013 7:23 pm


    Carney flounders as he tries to defend dear leader:

    Today, Jay Carney was unable to defend this arrangement at the White House press briefing, implausibly stating that the Obama group is somehow not related to Obama:

    The group, Organizing for Action, grew out of the campaign that helped Obama get elected in 2008 and then reelected in 2012.

    After a few minutes, Carney just hurries away from the podium, even as reporters still question him.


    This whole thing got me to thinking that perhaps those at the Consulate should have pulled together and pledged to donate $500k to OFA, maybe then they could have gotten a bit more attention the night of the attack.

  28. Truesoldier__ on February 25th, 2013 7:29 pm

    O/T…I am liking Sen Ted Cruz more and more each day. He is speaking the truth about Washington and not pulling punches:

    David Brody: Too many people choosing politics over principle?

    Cruz: That’s exactly right. Look, I mean there are a lot of people in Washington, I think, who desperately, desperately want to be in elected office. There’s an old line that ‘Politics is Hollywood for ugly people.’ And there’s an element of truth to that. You see those in elected office who, the prospect of not being in elected office is terrifying to them.

    And one of the sad realities is that it has been career politicians, in both parties, who’ve gotten us in this mess. I think President Obama is the most radical president we’ve ever seen, but I think an awful lot of Republicans, failed to stand for principle and contributed to getting us in this mess, and I think what we’ve seen in 2010 and to some degree in 2012 is a new generation of leaders stepping forward that are committed to fixing these problems.

    Here's a quick vid of MM speaking before the Lane County GOP down in Eugene on that very topic:

    Pretty gutsy stand on HER part, mindful this was I believe an ORGOP-sanctioned event! But if if anyone needs to hear it.., it's US! And great job getting the word out Lane Cty., I only found out about it b/c I happen to subscribe to her newsletter…

  30. SignPainterGuy on February 25th, 2013 7:55 pm

    Soros is of course one of the better known big $$$ contributors and as such you KNOW his voice is heard and it`s easy to suspect him, but there are others, less in the open, who I believe are really calling the shots !

  31. SignPainterGuy on February 25th, 2013 8:13 pm

    It may have increased their chances of receiving back up, BUT you`ve seen how Obama / DNC don`t worry too much about paying their bills; restaurants, the City of Charlotte, NC for the Dem. Nat`l Conv.

  32. Marshall_Will on February 25th, 2013 8:35 pm

    "implausibly stating that…"

    Oh Jay, you're walking comedy GOLD that keeps on giving..! Doesn't strike anyone a little odd 5+ years into this and we're still "organizing for action"? I mean this guy IS the pResident right?

    When have dems NOT tried to shape and then control the narrative ?

    I can`t tell you how many albums / cds I`ve bought for one song, only to be disappointed in that THAT is the only song on it that I like ?

    Sorta similarly, I often wonder who chooses the "excerpts" from movies for the trailers to make the movie attractive to potential audiences ? Often, those excerpts are the only good parts of the whole movie. Sometimes there are clips in the trailers that wound up being cut entirely.

    Has ANYONE noticed that Michelle did not have ONE black servant behind her? Isn't that discrimmination? Besides Obama's LOVE buddy, Nobody Wonders if they even HAVE black servants at the White House…?.

    As a supporter of Martin Luther King…I'm appalled. Blacks should have the same rights as the whites to serve in the White House plantation.

  40. SignPainterGuy on February 26th, 2013 2:11 am

    Sorry, no, actually I haven't! Most of us are too creeped out by M.O's insecure teen-like obsession w/ carefully staged ( and totally unnatural ) "trout-pout" lip contortions to notice?

    She's so self aware and vain it isn't funny. This is not the actions of a fully integrated personality. That's what people hate about her most. Being FLOTUS has afforded her every window to continue indulging her ugliest personality flaws.

  43. SignPainterGuy on February 26th, 2013 2:36 pm

    When the First 2-Daughters become of age and are no longer protected "as much" by the unwritten law "the Kids Are Off Limits" and the swarm of SS agents, we`ll see the quality of parenting they had, the influence of Mom`s teen-like obsessions, Dad`s poor work ethic, both their habits of prevarications. THAT will tell the real tale !

  44. Marshall_Will on February 26th, 2013 3:13 pm


    Excellent point good Sir. When they become a hybrid of Lindsay Fisher-Hilton-Bono it will morph into the unmanageable! Shame they weren't a little older going into 2012 huh?

    As is, you can tell they're completely managed by handlers and aren't allowed the slightest emotional expression. The older one looks like she's made out of marble. That won't last…

  45. SignPainterGuy on February 26th, 2013 3:22 pm

    Yeah, I was thinking on the "Lindsey" line; ooooh, perish THAT thought, but who knows.

    In the few "intimate and candid" photos we`ve been allowed to see they both look staged and constrained. I expect them to burst out one day, their faces being all that`s recognizable !

  46. Marshall_Will on February 26th, 2013 3:38 pm

    'staged and restrained'..?

    They look SEDATED..! I mean seriously, not even an itch or a scratch. Eyes forward. Shoulders back. Perfect little Manchurian Children.

    As Michelle's Mirror noted of MO, "She can't decide whether to be President or Oprah?" Whoopi Goldberg, whom I never agree with said of Will & Jada's son as he plunged into the ent. industry "It's so irresponsible for parents to allow their child to believe this is "the real world". That 'success' can be had this easy they don't even have to bother with school!?" (para )

  47. SignPainterGuy on February 26th, 2013 4:04 pm

    Little Jaden Smith IS a pretty good young actor (I have "The Karate Kid" on DVD); Will or Jada was there throughout production and insisted on his schooling being kept up. All 3 manage to stay out of the tabloids for the most part. They have a good family life in spite of attempts by the groc. store rags to inject some spice into their story !

    That was of course before Jackie Chan went all "capitalism and freedom are bad" on us ! Does he REALLY believe that or was it required of him to continue his "Life of Riley" ?!

  48. Marshall_Will on February 26th, 2013 4:44 pm

    THAT'S their kid's name! I agree and I think Whoopi sort of acknowledged that but the bottomline is; he's still just a kid?

    I believe her inference was; when you have famous parents opening doors for you like that ( does your having been to school even really matter? )

    And more than just who they VOTE for, I always implore people to stop and think before rubber stamp approving by, buying an ALBUM or.., mindlessly renting a movie? Once you invite someone ( or their kids ) into the public eye, you can't get RID of them! Hanoi Jane comes to mind?

  49. SignPainterGuy on February 26th, 2013 7:38 pm

    "…. does your having been to school even really matter?" There are other "successful" actors who dropped out of school, so at least in some cases, it DOESN`T matter.

    In hi. sch. a classmate announced he was gonna drop out. The Asst. Principal almost panicked, gave him the full Monty spiel on how a lack of a diploma would be a real hindrance to his future. The drop out blew it away when he explained, "My Dad owns the largest water well drilling co. in WNC. I will get 1/3 ownership of it as soon as I become a full-time emp. It won`t matter a hill-o-beans whether I have a diploma or not !" The AP`s response ? "Hmmm, I see your point. Never mind !"

    I take what I assume is your point; if you DON`T have it handed to you, you DO need the sheepskin !

    Fascinating that Hanoi Jane`s Son is miffed at her for spoiling his Dad; turned him into a flaming idiot lib !
