    I felt like it politicized the show. Honestly, Hollywood acts like teacher's pets towards a teacher when there's a Democratic President in office, especially with President Obama and his family. Personally, I don't think First Lady Michelle Obama ought to have acted as a Presentor, but felt that President Obama should have at LEAST been nominated for an Oscar after the Newtown Massacre.

    Now, if we could just KEEP them both in Hollywood and get an actual President
    who wants to 'Lead' the country, as that is the job of the President... and not once
    again 'playing to the audience', that's Hollywood, and they do not represent America, at least to the people who know the difference between facts and 'fiction'.

    Michelle Obama's appearance on the Oscars cheapens the office of President. Of course, considering the President and First Lady's pandering to the Hollywood Elite, it's not really a surprise.

    I wonder how much it cost the tax payer for her get up to try to look fabulous? hairdo, makeup, camera crew, additional security, new dress and tailors. And Obama says spending is not out of control-Hmmmmm? I do believe I just saw another example of an unlimited checkbook for our king and queen to do whatever they want at taxpayer expense. Even die hard democrats can see this on their private ski vacations, and golf with Tiger Woods. Their only arguement is comparing them to past republican presidents, but as bad as Bush was he did give up golf while the country was at war. Obama just spends more taxpayer dollars without a thought of how hard we work for our money. But when you have never had to actually earn a living in the private sector then you are clueless. He's a career politician hell bent on destroying this country from the inside out. Can't believe the democrats approve of this waste of taxpayer dollars.

    The camera crew would likely be provided by the academy. Designers knock each other loaning presenters gowns and jewelry. I fail to see why extra security would be necessary over a small camera crew being in the White House.

    Remember when Obama started 2 wars that there wasn't money for while giving tax breaks? No? Hmmm.

    Obama has taken less vacation days then any other recent president has during the 1st term. Which do you think costs less, a trip to a TX ranch or a round of golf?

    But why let reality get in the way of you being pissed off at President Blackenstein for doing what they've all done.

    If you dont care, why the rants? And just so you know, her makeup and hair were probably done by artists working for the Academy, which, by the way, why do you think the camera crews were not working for the network? Her dress was on loan, it will be announced tomorrow on all the gossip shows and give a big sales boost to the designer. If I were you, I dont think I would be ranting about something I SO obviously know nothing about. Kinda makes one look petty and small.

    @tgirl2 Extra security for this to include the make up is not donated by the academy. Don't even go there think hollywooders just walk in to the white house. Background checks are performed and that cost money. I will rant everytime nomatter who is president when I see any politician or their wives wasting my money and having the gall to ask for more taxes. BTW Obama didn't give anyone a tax break, and look at the gas prices that he fails to adress. Presidents before him have released our oil stockpiles to counter the Arabs lower productions which is very little since we get most from countries like Venezuala. Sorry you had to read my rants. Guess it's OK to you for politicians continuing to raise your taxes, while spending more of it for personal pleasures, while you pay $4.00 a gallon for gas.

    @tgirl2 If the politicians can control what a gallon of milk cost they can certainly release reserves to combat cost. Also we need the pipeline bad, and to do more offshore drilling. Other countries are doing it near our borders so why shouldn't we? If you look back presidents have released reserves to bring prices down. Fox right now is adressing that issue on how to lower cost. The middle east is toying with us. How about we toy with them and cut off all aid, trade, and quit buying from them altogether? We need to gain control of our economy-not Opec, not China, or Mexico.
    But all the politicians are dirty and making millions while turning a blind eye. But Obama could do something, and you are dead wrong thinking he can't.

    They can't help themselves from being the damn center of attention. He's not the king nor is she queen. Stop indecting you're selves into every aspect of cilvilins life's and try to hold you're selfs at the level of office you hold.

    Go back and read. She was asked to do it by the academy. Would you prefer she act more like Nancy Reagan who gave Sinatra a blow job in the Oval Office?

    @Cheenoguy of course it's going to say she was asked. Moron. As for Nancy Reagan thing. I thought the right was the only party that believes in conspiracies.

    @Cheenoguy BTW what's with the name calling? I never projected any angry in my statement but you felt the need to belittle me. Nice show of charter

    1) If that was you not being angry you seriously need to see a therapist. Or consult a dictionary to see what the term angry means.
    2) Act intelligent if you don't want to be treated as intellectually challenged.

    You know what right wingers remind me of? I have two dogs. One older one younger. The older dog can be napping and the young dog comes over for a pet the old dog jumps right up and comes pushing her way past the young dog to get her's FIRST. You right wingers aren't upset that Michelle Obama gave out an award. You're upset one of yours didn't. It's call petty jealousy.

    Of course all those who think it "politicized the show" would have absolutely no problem with Michelle Bachman giving out the award while curing gays.

    @DrFunkenstein LOLOL I think she's about the most down to earth First Lady we've had in some time. She has the ability to adapt to almost any environment.

    Those soldiers on each side of her really gave a Nazi SS feeling to the ceremony. We all need to be remined that we are a war loving country.

    You can tell she was posturing to support that propaganda film.

    Michelle
    Obama again? Enough already! Is there a camera she won't mug for?
    Jeopardy, The View, Jimmy Kimmel. She makes Kim Kardashian look like a
    recluse. Hey Michelle, How about presenting awards at our bowling banquet? They'll be CAMERAS there!

    On the other hand we had Nancy Reagan consulting astrologers and trying to steal the White House China and giving advice to her husband who had Alzheimer disease. On balance I prefer Michelle. I actually like her more than her husband but that's just me. .

    @MadAmerican No it wasn't. Nancy tried to claim that it was a gift and it was valued well over the amount that departing White House occupants could take with them. Stop it.

    @jessejaymes Thank you, and it does chap my ass that every time we get a new president they all spend millions on their taste improvements. I can see new paint every five-8 years, but furniture, curtains, dishes, and other needless spending is deplorable. If I can go ten years with my diningroom and livingroom set why can't they? I'd love to see a president (demo or rep) say enough is enough and set the example of being tight with taxpayer money.

    I hate her "bangs" look that everyone was fussing about. They make her look like an old woman trying to look young. The arrangement of gaudily dressed servants who are staring at her adoringly make me wonder if she ever got over her childhood dream of being a princess. I find it very hard to accept any of Barack Obama's gestures about balancing the budget and reducing the deficit while he and his wife are trying to outspend and outshine Britain's Royal Family. Want to reduce government spending? Stop spending hundreds of thousands on clothes, stay at home and watch TV like your broke-ass citizens instead of flying off on expensive vacations all of the time. What part of "Public Service" means that you get to spend tax payer money like Louis XIV?

    Ah, every right wing meme covered here in this post....and why on earth would you give a damn about her haircut? Did Adeles hair annoy you, too, or do you reserve that just for the FLOTUS? Jeez...

    @tgirl2 I mentioned her hair because it is apparent in the photograph that goes with the story. Reminds me of a sheepdog. At least she isn't wearing that expensive copy of the Star Trek Romulan Commander outfit that she wore for the inauguration. I didn't watch the Academy Award show, so I don't know what Adele's hair looked like. I had more important things to do, like clipping my toenails.

    I'll add your description of me as a right wing meme repeater to the stack of accusations of being a war monger, socialist, communist, left wing liberal Obama worshipper, and all of the other shallow, dismissive responses that I've gotten over time.

    @Dan_Tien So, please tell us what your credentials as a fashion critic are. I'm sure your personal sartorial style is stunning.

    @tgirl2 I've been bombarded with the same fashion shows, beauty tips and American top model BS that every American who ever watched broadcast TV has been. I know about Versace and Gucci and that the Devil wears Prada. I know that my wife can buy a Coach clone knock-off purse for $15 that looks exactly the same as a "real" one other women pay hundreds for. I know that designer dresses are very expensive and often poorly made. I imagine that your snarky comments are probably what got your first account suspended, also. Going for two?

    @Dan_Tien Learning the difference between "designer" and "couture" would be the place to start for you. Also, one can only suppose that you are acknowledging that you're really not complaining about Michelles bangs, you're complaining because shes black, a Democrat, and in the White House.
