    There are a lot of women republicans, I am certain that are extraordinarily intelligent, well mannered, well spoken and well informed on all topics. Hell, even on this forum you see women who identify as conservative who would be a far more superior candidate for the republican nomination than Sarah Palin or Bachman, from a quality standpoint.
    It's great that you passed a value judgement. I despise the woman myself. But, alas, she is a woman, with a non-traditional family, who was loved by many conservatives. So that 50's era paternalism is bunk leftist drivel unworthy of a second response. I'm sorry I even gave it the legitimacy of my time.

    She is non-traditional (her daughter is an unwed teenage mother), she is outspoken in her beliefs, and she got more hate from the left than Hillary and Michelle could ever get this perverse PC world we live in.

    (Oh, and, conservatives kinda liked her. So much for that paternalistic "keep em in their place" nonsense you were ramblin about)
    LOL, she is traditional. She's all about tradition. Of course there were a few "oops" moments that made here look non-traditional.

    Where are all these hateful bigots?

    Cause I sure know a lot of folks claim these racists exist.

    But where are they?

    Please, name names.
    Well, I do recall someone saying that obama is an light-skinned black man with no negro dialect unless he wanted to have one.
    I thought that was pretty racist.

    Actually there is some great video evidence confirming the bolded. Speaking to a (church?) group in the deep south 5-6 years ago. Don't see where there is anything "racist" about it. But it is sort of funny to listen to.

    Being loved by people is necessary requirement to be President, but it shouldn't be a sufficient one.

    pathetic jealousy, if the republicans had such a representative for their party they would be cooing and crowing like crazy. If the Romney's had won and his wife would have presented the Oscar for best film they would be cheering her on and saying that it was perfectly fine.

    I wonder, when Laura Bush was a guest host on the Today show, whether these same republicans were acting as immature about that then too.

    The republicans are envious because unlike them, Michelle Obama is actually liked by the US people.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    I like the idea of the President doing interviews before the Super Bowl, no problem with that, as he's talking policy mixed with a little football to a huge audience. I don't think what Michelle did here was horrible, just a little weird and below a first lady's dignity to present an award at one of the most pretentious events out there.

    The question should be how can so many Americans not see this man for what he is.

    Even if Reagan had appeared n person he was actually part of that business.

    Michelle Obama has nothing to do with the Hollywood crowd and should not have inserted herslf into the show.

    I wonder what she will do when her husband leaves the White House. The spotlight will dim. What will she do?

    Can we also say that the academy is racist because they never asked a white first lady to present the best picture award?
