Brit calls Michelle's Oscar appearance "pointless and bizarre"

Rate this post


Nile Gardiner is a Washington-based foreign affairs analyst and political commenter for the UK’s paper, The Telegraph. The following is excerpted from his essay of Feb. 25, 2013, “Michelle Obama’s Oscar cameo was pointless and bizarre“:
“[…] All in all it was an entertaining evening, recognising some truly great cinematic achievements. However, the entrance of Michelle Obama, via video link, at the end of the ceremony to announce the Best Picture winner was a bizarre moment that was completely pointless. It was reportedly arranged by Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, a close friend of the Obamas (hat tip: Drudge Report). If the First Lady was a former actress (à la Carla Sarkozy), or had some official role in promoting the American film industry, it might have made some sense. Mrs. Obama, though, has no connection to the world of cinema.
It was a cringe worthy moment that came across as cynical liberal Hollywood pandering to a Democrat White House, a fitting match for an Obama presidency that is obsessed with show biz celebrities. As Tim Stanley noted earlier, “the bias discredits both the White House and movie industry.” Even the First Lady herself looked a bit embarrassed by the whole affair, and who knows what Jack Nicholson was really thinking about the spectacle. At least there is a silver lining. Argo is not only a nail biting movie based on a true story, but it is also an unflinching indictment of the Iranian revolution and the Islamist regime that came to power in 1979. To anyone who has seen this movie, Barack Obama’s policy of engagement with the tyranny in Tehran looks foolhardy and naive in the extreme.”
I would have used stronger words than “pointless and bizarre.”
But then I suppose we should all be grateful that Mooch didn’t have snot dribbling from her nose like she did, for minutes upon minutes beginning at the 12:06 mark in the video below, when she spoke at the 2011 National Governors Association Meeting in the White House:

  1. I agree 100%. I think the only reason for this was to stroke the Hollywood elites into paying more homage to the “Anointed One”.
    One other thing the turned me off was the the ancillary awards presentations that were previously recorded with that Paragon of Liberal Hypocrisy Michael Moore doing a presentation. I almost lost my lunch.

     
  2. Much like her husbands appearance in the w.h……..pointless and bizarre . As a couple , they are about as useless as t$ts on a bull .

     
  3. The Telegraph is the Rothschild’s UK rag, along w/The Economist. It’s best to read between the lines, which is simply that this is the wife of the man whom the Rothschilds helped put in office. If you think I’m kidding, do a long vetting of the Obamamama’s financial supports, and find the rather obvious line from the Rothschilds to Goldman Sachs to the Pritzkers to his campaign, etc., etc. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pritzker_family]
    “The Pritzker family is one of the wealthiest families in the United States, being near the top of Forbes magazine’s “America’s Richest Families” list since the magazine began it in 1982.
    The family is most famous for owning the Hyatt hotel chain, and the Marmon Group, conglomerate of manufacturing and industrial service companies. Other holdings have included the Superior Bank of Chicago, the TransUnion credit bureau, the Conwood tobacco company, and the Royal Caribbean cruise line.”

     
  4. It’s all about the attention!

     
  5. Her hairdo made her look like one of the three stooges. And no, I did not like her gown. I thought it made her look like the Cobra Woman.

     
  6. Disgraceful.
