    Re: Michelle Obama surprises Oscars by presenting Best Picture award

    So...

    A taped message from the white house is similar to a trip to California to physically attend and present an award?

    A taped message in the midst of a larger video montage is similar to a trip to California to physically attend and present an award?

    A via sattelite message from the white house promoting charitable action is similar to a trip to California to physically attend and present an award?

    And please...exactly which of those is the one you were suggesting is "even more inovolving" than what Michelle did? I'd be delighted to hear the answer.

    Thank you for illustrating how the partisan hacks on the left and right are like peas in a pod with gross exaggerations and faux outrage. I'm sure to you Soccer and Basketball are very "similar" because they both involve a round ball, a team of athletes, and running back and forth on the playing surface and naturally expect everyone to treat their views of each in an equivilent manner as well.

    No, the point being is you didn't want to get left out of the political hackiness party and decided to jump in head first with over exaggerated analogs to highlight your own pathetic feigned outrage and spotlighting your own hypocrisy. Bravo.

    Complaining about michelle here is idiotic and hacky. Retorts like yours also fit with those adjectives beautifully.

    What do you people NOT UNDERSTAND. Michelle Obama did not travel to California to physically attend and present an award. It was done via tape from the whitehouse. You need to get your facts straight before you try to attack me as being partisan on this issue. My point exactly is that the left didn't jump up and down salivating the way the right-wing has tried to do.

    Ever since the "Kenyan anti-colonialist" became President, the crazy exhibited by the stupid has indeed been priceless.

    And here I shall do what good posters should do.

    Admit I was wrong.

    When looking at the info of the ridiculous outrage, I kept seeing pictures of Michelle seemingly in a typical Oscar's type of gown with what seemed like other formal dressed individuals near her. That coupled with the statement of "presents" which usually indicates a physical precense over something like announces gave me the distinct impression she was actually AT the Oscars.

    That was incorrect, and my last post was wrong and based off that incorrect understanding.

    Point retracted, error noted and acknowledged.

    and in the spirit of admitting our errors...I will admit that I was wrong in suggesting that others have had a more prominent role. I was under the belief that Reagan had appeared in person, at least that was my recollection. In checking I discovered that his was done via tape as well.

    I figured that Reagan had probably actually ATTENDED at one point, I just figured that point would've been during his acting days or at best his Gubenatorial days, rather than when he was President.

    Re: Michelle Obama surprises Oscars by presenting Best Picture award

    I didn't watch the Oscars last night, but when morning TV showed the First Lady in the White House making a presentation I was impressed. Quite a coup for the Oscars.

    Then I wondered if there would be a backlash from the radical right whiners. I did wonder who could be so bitter, so hateful, so small and partisan to attack the First Lady over this....

    now I know....

    I knew as soon as Nicholson announced her name that conservatives were going to throw a fit. I love it. Haters gon' hate.

    It's funny that she presented the award to a film about the CIA though.

    I also like that she took one of the most watched programs involving the arts to stress the important of the arts to children and education. Perfect venue for a worthwhile message.

    I thought for sure the winner was going to be Lincoln when she presented it.....it was a good PSYCHE from the Oscar Producers.

    Now Nancy Reagan was very active socially and probably attended more social type events than any other first lady. Of course I never had a problem with that and think she was a great first lady.
