    Eh, I really don't see this as any kind of a big deal, but then I couldn't care less about the Academy Awards.

    Re: Michelle Obama surprises Oscars by presenting Best Picture award

    How the heck did they keep Michelle Obama under wraps?

    It was done in a style similar to Bill Clinton's surprise appearance at the recent Golden Globe Awards. In that case, it was "Lincoln" director Steven Spielberg who convinced Clinton to appear and speak about his film. This time around it was Harvey Weinstein.

    In a statement after the telecast, the White House didn't give up the secret, but did say: "The Academy Awards approached the first lady about being a part of the ceremony. As a movie lover, she was honored to present the award and celebrate the artists who inspire us all – especially our young people – with their passion, skill and imagination." Obama presented the award via satellite from Washington, D.C.

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, the execution was more top-secret than the on-screen plot in "Argo." Weinstein and his daughter hatched the plan with Oscar producers, who in turn took a secret flight to D.C. to figure out the logistics. Two envelopes were prepared, with Jack Nicholson having a backup on stage at the Dolby Theatre in case the satellite feed went down.....snip~

    Second - you prove to me with links to unbiased factual sources that it cost taxpayers money specifically for that trip that were not covered by the network and I will judge it accordingly.

    Do you have access to such information - yes or no?

    If she cost taxpayers millions to fly out there just to appear on that show then I am against it on that basis.
    However, if she was out there anyway and just 'dropped' by the show (and the expenses for that were covered by the network); then I have ZERO problem with it.
    You don't think Secret Service was there? You need a link for that?

    We have Sequestration in plain view of the nation, and she shows up for a glamour shot.

    So what, OP? Your desperation is pathetically sad.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    So the answer to the second question is 'no'.


    Now how about the first one?

    Where exactly did I type that 'I like it' (as you claim I did)?

    She's not the president. She didn't even "show up", American. She gave the award via Satellite.

    Is she running the country? Is she in any way whatsoever responsible for those sequestration plans?

    Wow. Talk about desperate for something to hate on.
