New Fears That Michelle Obama's Appearance At The Oscars Could Bring Down The Obama Administration


By Charles Stedmeyer
The Associated Press


(WASHINGTON) — Michelle Obama made a surprise appearance at the Oscars, opening the envelope that contained the name of the Best Picture winner, “Argo.” However, commentators are now discussing the possibility that her appearance could be one of the biggest scandals to hit Washington since Watergate.

“You can be sure this incident will be investigated to the fullest extent by the House of Representatives. I have seen some big Washington scandals in my lifetime, but this could be the biggest one of all," wrote Washington Post blogger Jennifer Rubin. "How did President Obama manage to get the Academy to agree to this? Clearly a large exchange of cash and gifts was involved which would definitely constitute a high crime and/or misdemeanor. Barack Obama makes Richard Nixon look like a choir boy.”

“This is one of the most corrupt Administrations this country has ever seen,” said a columnist for the Breitbart website. "The left constantly talks about Bush's multi-trillion dollar war in Iraq, but they just brush this off like it means absolutely nothing. This is ten times worse than leading the country to war based on false information. We don't know how many Americans will ultimately die because of this."

"Articles of impeachment need to be filed immediately," wrote New York Times writer David Brooks. "We cannot let a precedent like this stand where the First Lady is allowed to present an Oscar at the Academy Awards. Can you imagine if this was allowed to happen again?"

5. OMG!! I'll have to quit the party

It's obviously a plot to own Hollywood and Oscar, too!

We can't afford Hollywood.. can we? Wow, maybe we could?

Anyway, Obama needs to go on TV tonight and apologize. Don't have a clue what he should apologize for but hell, Hollywood can make something up. They're good at that.

If it will make the republicans happy, he should just do it. Or I'll quit!! You don't want to see me quit... do you? ??

8. You've captured the right wing mentality perfectly, Cali..

I'm fairly sure, not 100%, but fairly sure, that the billion or so people who watched the Oscars went right to the Limbaugh page afterwards, and tuned in to his show to get his opinion, because they, along with us of course, consider Limbaugh, Hannity, Levin, et al, to be the experts on what's appropriate in every situation.

Limbaugh believes that Obama’s appearance “was out of place,” and “unneeded"..

31. YES SHE DID

DrudgeReport.com screamed the headline, "Obama Crashes Oscars."

http://www.opposingviews.com/i/entertainment/conervatives-attack-michelle-obama-appearing-oscars-not-laura-bush-video#

....In 1981, President Reagan taped an appearance for the Oscars which, as noted by the New York Times, stated: "He will not be the first President to make such an address. Franklin D. Roosevelt spoke to an Oscar audience by radio in 1941."

Imagine if POTUS Obama had spoke to the Oscar audience?????Horrors!!!

Why are RWs watching the Oscars??
I thought they hated the left coast and all the Commies in Hollywood? MacFarlane fans?

30. I talked to two Republicans today. They both brought up Michelle Obama.

A woman from our homeowners association stopped by, and after we finished the official part of our discussion, she mentioned that people where she worked were all talking about "the Queen" today. My wife was puzzled, but I knew what she meant immediately and pleasantly remarked that she must have seen Michelle on the Oscars.

Guilty as charged.

Later, I talked to my brother. We talked family and argued politics for an hour. Toward the end he said that he watched the Oscars until Michelle came on, at which point he immediately turned off the tv. LOL

Of the link between Hollywood and the Obamas. Hollywood will make the propaganda films while the Obamas will emasculate God fearing American men by stealing their guns and forcing them into gay marriages.
