As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Video || Michelle Presents Best Picture Oscar

First Lady Michelle Obama Sunday night made a surprise appearance on the Academy Awards to present the Oscar for Best Picture. She made the award via video from the Diplomatic Room of the White House.

Michelle used a group of young servicemen and women as props for her latest high-profile media appearance, having them stand behind her as she spoke.

Mrs. Obama wore a silver, art deco-inspired gown by Indian-born American fashion designer Naeem Khan.

Here’s how it went down:

  1. I hate when they use our young men and woman in uniform as potted plants for this type of crap. They should be ashamed….but, they know no better.

  2. Having worked int the WH myself in past years, I know that these young members of the military as the social aides who attend all formal events and assistant in the event. I’m sure there was a big party last night given the way she is dressed. Can those bangs get any longer?

    • The odds were good that the Obamas would get a picture of the year which played into their self-promoting little paws. If Lincoln had won, you would have had the descendant of slaves and the wife of the contemporary Lincoln announcing the award. If Zero Dark Thirty, everyone would have been reminded that Obama ‘got’ Bin Laden. Argo offered the least, but if you’ve seen it, you know that the end of movie leaves everyone thinking Jimmy Carter solved the Iranian Hostage Crisis without a shot being fired or a life being lost when in fact the movie portrays Carter as almost having screwed the rescue up and we all know who got the bulk of the hostages out of Iran, Ronald Reagan.

      • Or as Rush Limbaugh pointed out: 1) “Argo” gives Hollywood partial credit for the heroics (although Canada’s role is minimized) and 2) The irony of Mrs. Obama naming a best picture about a successful rescue of Embassy personnel in light of the Obama Benghazi failure.

  3. How much does something like this cost to set up? I’m sure we, the taxpayers ,paid for it!! I don’t watch the Oscars anyway, but did turn it on at the end, and was I ever sorry I did!

  4. … Now we know why the makeover happened ….just in time for the Oscars….
    I think she actually believes she is a movie star…
    Bet she is planning her star and footprints at Graumans Chinese Theatre
    next……

  5. This Marxist administration has their fingerprints on everything, from the Super Bowl to the Oscars. What’s next? An Obama statue in every town?

  6. In case you missed the Oscars, host Seth McFarlane sang “We Saw Your Boobs” at the beginning of the show, which called out all the actresses who have gone topless in the movies. The song was crass and stupid and some of the actresses looked mortified at being called out. Maybe they’ll learn to keep their clothes on next time… During that song, 8 minutes into the show, is when I changed the channel. We did see the end though with Mooch presenting the award. Her hair/bangs remind me of the doll with magic hair our daughters used to have.

  7. Michelle Obama talks as if the movies never existed before she and Barack came onto the scene. We get a lecture about what the movies are all about (as if we didn’t know) and reassurance that the Marxists running the country give their full approval and permission for us serfdom to go to the movies.

    This is just so ridiculous I can’t believe that I’m even writing this in the United States of America.

  8. First thing I thought of, what did this cost us ? Oscar results are better guarded than the First Family, so we fly the envelope out with a security team (or whatever Hollywood magic gave her the results at that second), some people to rehearse and stage her appearance and set up cameras and crews at midnight ? (or was is pre-recorded?)

    Then Twitter exploded, that was the place to be for the surprise! Even people who like her as First Lady thought it was a shark jumping buzz killing moment. We can’t escape her!

  9. Did Michelle wear the same dress for her Oscar premiere (presentation) that she wore for the Governor’s dinner? Or did we pay for two dresses similar in appearance?

  10. You can hear the fear in Jack’s voice; he knows something is very very wrong even though he probably couldn’t articulate it even if he wanted to.

  11. The wife of the President gives out an award voted on by members of a private organization she has no association with, whie members of the military stand behind her and they think this is OK.

    One of the constants of this Obama administration is the use of people or groups that Americans traditionally hold in high regard; our doctors, our teachers, first responders, and most of all, our military. They are used as backdrops to give the impression that these people are backing them, have their back, or are supporting them in whatever they are saying or doing.
    As a visual tactic, it’s not too subtle, but effective even as it is misleading and a false pandering.

    The handlers or publicists of the Obamas are better than those of the Hollywood actors who have used them for years to further their careers.
    But, unlike those actors who use these tactics to get the attention of the industry’s mogels, the Obamas are using them to gain a popularity that has nothing to do with any talent or expertise. Their public appearances are becoming nothing more than promoting their personalities, to what end is unknown.

    They have managed to cast the Presidency and all of it’s majesty that we allow to become a crass vehicle for their personal public enhancement and not the best interests of the United States..

    • Well said, srdem! It’s the ‘cult of personality’ combined with Rules for Radicals. We are becoming Argentina with a twist of N. Korea. They have taken over the MSM and now…the public aiways. It’s going to take an Act of Congress to put a stop their unprecedented abuse of power and misappropriation of Federal funds. It should be grounds for impeachment, i.e. dereliction of duty on Obama’s part.

      They are both out of control! The WH has become BET headquarters. It warrants a full investigation.

      Question: How did MO go from this: http://cdn.pophangover.com/images/michelle-obama-ugly-12.jpg
      to being a presenter at the Academy Awards?
      Answer: Your taxpayer dollars!

    • Are you talking about the same Obama who stood in silent assent when Wanda Sykes wished kidney failure on Rush Limbaugh, Hoffa vowed to march an army and “take these s.o.b.s (GOP) out”, and Paul McCartney, in a demonstration of crassness, and ill-mannered ignorance told Obama it was nice to have a President in the White House who actually knew what a library was (ignoring both George W. Bush’s literacy efforts and his wife’s job as a librarian)?

      Are you talking about a President who can’t be bothered to work with “Congress” to avoid national bankruptcy, but can do numerous media interviews, and play golf with Tiger Woods? (Karma? Woods was eliminated in the first round of his next tournament.)

      Stay tuned. Obama’s NCAA brackets are right around the corner.

  12. Sorry but the metallic gray is NOT a good look on black skin. Halle Berry wore the same color to the Oscars, and as beautiful as she truly is, it is not a good look for her skin color.
    Is there no place we are safe from having to look at or listen to Little Barry Boo Boo and MooChow? Do they have to stick their noses into everything?

  13. Truthfully, when I saw her come on the screen I thought it was going to be due to Zero Dark Thirty being the winner. To be honest, I was surprised that it wasn’t. I haven’t seen this piece of propaganda, but with Hollywierd being so enamored with this President, and vice-versa, I thought it would win best picture simply on the weight of all the help the producers and director received from the WH.

    Perhaps next years WH sponsored movie will take the Best Picture category. My only question is, what story will the next one tell? Will it be about how “radical, fringe elements” of the TEA Party try to overthrow the duly elected government, and the leadership that Obama showed in keeping the Union together? If Obama starts to grow a beard à la Lincoln, we know we are all in trouble.

  14. Leave it to the Brits. Michelle is NOT going to like this:

    David Cameron is encouraging Barack Obama to leave his wife Michelle at home when he attends the G8 Summit in the UK this year.

    British sources say the Prime Minister wants the summit in June to be WAG-free to ensure leaders remain ‘focused’ on issues like tackling tax avoidance, without the distraction of having their wives and girlfriends in tow.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2283129/Cameron-bans-Obama-bringing-Michelle-G8-decrees-summit-WAG-free-zone.html

  15. Enough is never enough when you know no different. The problem we have is that the Obama’s have fallen in love with being Potus and Flotus and now re-elected have no natural line in the sand with what is the correct role never mind how to perform it. Those being two different things. I’d like to see them make low key mutlitple visits to the graves of those killed in Iraq and afghanistan, visit the thousands wounded many beyond comprehension, many now without the support of an acceptable support network. I’d liek to see the president spend a long weekend at the emergency ward of Chicago’s main hospital and see just how well his city is doing, meet with and speak to the thousands of young females both domestic and foreign enslaved by vice rings around the country, I’d like to see them actually sit and work out issues with those who disagree and realsie as we all do every day that solutions often require doing something we don’t like 100%, but its better than the blame game. Above all I’d liek them stopping behaving as if they are campigning in the banal way that almost all politiciaisn in the US do now. Potus and Fotus spend more actual thought and energy pleasing themselves than the citizens of the country, they don’t see it that way but that is a fact. Pres Obama clearly put more effort and personal involvement into his golf days recently than any debt plan, Mrs O into picking clothes and going skiing as well as making sure her Christmas vacation as all it could be for her. The fact that makes this worse is that there appears to be no platform untainted by GOP colors to make the middle and the left take notice of the abuse of tax funds and above all time of the President for personal gratification.

    • Low-key visits? Really? This is not George and Laura Bush we are talking about here. The sorry assed Obama’s will never pass up a chance to keep their ugly mugs in the spotlight. Let us remember, no matter what they do, the photo op or the ensuing riot when there is no access, is the all important thing for these two.
      Since Little Barry Boo Boo and his Freaky Bride do not have any real accomplishments to build a life on once they are no longer stinking up the WH, Hollywood will be the only route that will keep them in the spotlight and on track with the frivolous, ridiculous and demeaning.

  16. The potted plants seem to be non-diverse Typical White people :/

    (Does anyone know what branch of military they are? I don’t recognize the uniforms.)

  17. Missed the hoopla last night and have no desire to watch Mooch live the life of a movie star vicariously through some phony awards presentation. Keep wondering how far the grifters will go, and there seems to be no limit. Drudge has a photo of her performance. Swear she puts Miracle Gro on that wighat – her bangs keep getting longer and longer. Not much longer before she looks like Cousin Itt from the Addams Family.

  18. Give her some credit…at least she didn’t spend our money flying cross country to be with her Hollywood pals. But the dress probably wasn’t off the rack at Wal-Mart either.

  19. This hideous, over-exposed grifter is a blight on the United States. What an unpleasant surprise when she popped up on the screen.

    The irony of Me-Chelle Obama presenting an award to a film about the rescue of Americans from their embassy is absolutely mind blowing.
    I will never watch the Oscars again.

    • She certainly did grab the spotlight away from the award, and not in a good way. I was so dumbfounded by her WTF! appearance, I didn’t realize Argo won until I saw Clooney and Affleck run to the stage.

  20. Ok, so the presentation was a live feed from the WH. This has me thinking, if they can do this for the Oscars, then why not for some of the 30 min home town speeches that BO has made this past month? Other than a limited grip and grin exercise, or having pre-school children teach him how to read, what else does it amount to? To me it amounts to allot of tax payer funds wasted by tying up WH Air and SS security, and making a mess of the local community for a 45 min visit.

    Yes there are times he needs to be out and about, but we have a current WH staff that knows how effectively use every current form of media known today (Twitter, Video, You Tube, Oprah, The View, etc,). Think about the cost savings!! 2 way feeds are easy to do, and it was proved last night.

    • Otis, such talk will not be tolerated by Dear Leader. Look outside now. See the 2 stripped Ford sedans containing tall men wearing dark glasses and ear wigs? The knock at your door will follow shortly…….

      That said, I agree with you 110%. Unfortunately, live feeds don’t satisfy the power cravings like convoys, thousands of flashing strobes, cheering masses, etc. Nice idea you had though.

  21. I am shocked by the high ratings – thought conservatives who’ve had enough of liberal Hollywood and many celebrities supporting Obama would be enough to affect ratings. We need to stop supporting these celebrities and hit them via ratings and their pocketbooks..

    • I’m beginning to see why several here call her The Beard. Both on the Fallon show and the Oscars, I notice that the bottom half of her face looks darker than the upper part. Is that a poor attempt to make her face look thinner than it is?

  22. Rush Limbaugh’s thought was interesting. He says there is a huge animosity between Spielberg and Weinstein, and Weinstein had the coup. Spielberg got Bill Clinton to do a shill for Lincoln at the Golden Globes (I think, could have been the BAFTA). And Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. But Weinstein got MO to do a shill for the movie industry itself, and then, Argo won. Interestingly MO praised the industry to high heaven with narry a mention of all the gratuitous sex and violence. Yes, the movies are so inspiring for our young people.

  23. Just to set the record straight, for all those posting around the web that Laura Bush didn’t get questioned when she was on the Oscars in 2002. Laura Bush was NOT at the Oscars last night. She occupied 6.5 seconds out of a four minute documentary on our reactions to films. She mentioned “Giant”. Of the nearly 100 other people on the video were Mikhail Gorbachev, Jerry Brown, Walter Cronkite, Donald Trump and Al Sharpton.

    It’s tough fighting fantasy with facts, but even in Hollywood it should be possible.

    PS: Anybody know why Nicholson said “Sorry” after “Life of Pi”??

    • Sorry. Laura Bush wasn’t at the Oscars THAT night (in 2002) OTOH, comparing the actions of Obama with those of Bush, and the topic of “Argo”, maybe she should have been. Or as someone suggested elsewhere, Rosalynn Carter would have been more appropriate in this case.

  24. I watched The Amazing Race (spoiler: the hockey brothers won the leg), and then fired up my PS3 to start Ni No Kuni, which I’ve heard was pretty good.

    The funny thing is, the opening chapter of Ni No Kuni had me more emotionally involved than anything Hollywood put out last year.

    AND I got to miss Mouchelle, who’s never worked in Hollywood, present an award she had no business presenting.

    All told, a good Sunday night. The Oscars? Who needs ‘em?

      • That, I think, is one thing Hollywood is not going to budge on, especially if the entire house of cards collapses on Obeyme’s watch.

        On reflection, though…perhaps this was an appropriate appearance, after all. Considering the fiction of her love of country; the charade that she lives a healthy life; the put-on that she’s just another American mom; and all the lies that her clan is built upon, and which it peddles to this very day; perhaps it’s only fitting that she announce the winner of the highest honor in the business of make-believe.

  25. can’t stand her or him, RUINED the oscars, she is such a bitch. affirmative action got her a place in good schools. she didn’t deserve it, at all., usede here race card…nio fooling!

  26. Beautiful irony here: Argo is about a time when Muslims dissed America due to the weakness of our President. BTW: All other US Embassy hostages were released the day of President Regan’s inauguration. Why? Because he threatened to destroy them, if they didn’t….AND they believed him.
