No, it wasn’t your imagination. As Twitchy reported last night, the White House-Hollywood industrial complex jumped the shark when Michelle Obama appeared to announce the best picture winner at the Oscars. Press secretary Carney proudly tweeted out a photo today.

Notice anything? Twitter users did.

Yep, they do. Everything is just a photo op to them, and using people, including children, as props is standard shameful operating procedure.

Laura Ingraham asks a key question.

Asked, and answered.

That’s right. She didn’t even thank them:

She declared of the Best Picture nominees, “They reminded us that we can overcome any obstacle if we dig deep enough and fight hard enough and find the courage within ourselves.” Alas, none of the films nor her aides reminded her to mention the military, not those personnel behind her nor those serving overseas, an odd omission for the White House that nevertheless was pleased to have them arrayed behind her like, well, set decoration.

The disgust and outragre rightly continue.

Amen. Our men and women in uniform deserve unending gratitude, not  to be used as props for someone else’s gain.

This Twitter user puts it in a sad nutshell.

        Hi, Jennifer:

        Look for Lt. Col. Robert “Buzz” Patterson’s book, ‘Dereliction of Duty’. Lt. Col. Patterson was a Clinton aide who carried “The Football” (Nuclear Attack Codes) for then president Clinton.

        Lots of interesting information inside.

        • Jennifer Bishop Mason

          Thank you :)

          • Jack Deth

            You’re welcome, Jennifer.

        • pen44

          Just downloaded it from iBooks, Jack! Thanks! Clinton was the prez that turned me from associating myself in any way with the Dem Party. They caused me to become a hardcore Independent…though I never was a card-carrier for either Party.

          Blame us for your shortcomings, that’s good. You could have beaten Obama, if you hadn’t wasted your time alienating the Hispanic community and preaching outdated ideas that only old people from middle America agree with anymore. But who cares right? Who cares what minorities think?

          • SturJen

            Well they didn’t alienate this Hispanic woman, nor her family. We can see a fake messiah from miles away. How come YOU didn’t?

            But what I DO Find really darkly hysterical is that old mantra that Republicans are only ‘rich, old white guys.’ so you insist that ‘they’re bad’. BUT…………you’ll let a rich black guy and his rich old white guy handler (Darth Soros) lead you around like lemmings on a death march! So, is it the color of his skin that gets you all tingled up? Because they’re both rich and guys….

          • SFCPat

            I can think of a couple of minorites that I really don’t care what they think and a whole bunch of libs also. Hope you live in a city and are on a drive by route. We know that Obama’s house in Chicage is on a street that they are getting closer to EVERY day!

          • 1CatEye

            Yeah, those old people from middle America are the ones you should be on your knees thanking for this great country. What have you contributed, besides pooping on cop cars and economic stupidity? What have you accomplished? Pssst! Sticking your hand out for freebies doesn’t count.

        because the foolish masses were taken in by a man of no substance does not mean more Americans disagree with those of us who do not claim blind obedience to the POTUS. The liberal machine orchestrated his meteoric rise from nothingness, and they will reap what they have sown soon enough. Too bad out country is a flaming craphole of lazy good for nothing handout mongers now. We all have to suffer for it.

      • kobrien674

            The United States would lead the way ….if only we all believed the same way? Is that really what you are saying here?

            The difference between Conservatives and lib-progs ;
            Conservatives understand that not everyone will see every issue the same way and encourage different ideas.
            Lib-progs are afraid of different opinions and seek to squash any opposing ideas.

          • Adam Baumb

            This is almost the most laughable comment made by a libtard in this thread….almost. America leads the world in so many important categories, only liberals dredge up the fact we fall behind some socialist ditch water outfit in the number of kids in school uniforms, or maybe the number of kids that can actually do math, read, or understand actual history. America leads the world in ideologues in academia and mass media — liberal morons with no concern over facts, only appeasing liberal vanity. The fact we trail other socialist nations in kowtowing to wholesale liberal fraud is a blessing future generations of Americans will forever thank us.

        • $24698634

          I’m fine with disagreement and diversity of opinion.  I think a line is crossed when you get into the realm of disrespect and cries of illegitimacy, where some have gone.  The tide will turn again, but I doubt extremism will be the catalyst.

          • Adam Baumb

            What a complete idiot you are proving to be. Did you miss the eight years of insults and disrespect leveled at President Bush? How about the Palin family? Condoleeza Rice? I’d go on, but your mom probably blocks the web sites where this information is readily available. Liberals — pond scum they are — reached into the deepest sewers to find ways to insult President Bush. Legitimate Americans and conservatives need only point out the reality of the fraud that is this carnival huckster to make their points. Meanwhile, libtards like this kellyslane can’t hammer a pencil up their rectums squawking about “disrespect”. The junior senator from Illinois couldn’t carry George W. Bush’s dirty laundry across the street. Further, that communist diva impersonating a First Lady should be doing President Bush’s laundry.

        You mean stealing, don’t you?

      • JeannieJ

        More Americans did NOT disagree…but those who did voted more times. The voter fraud will probably never be truly investigated nor revealed, but it’s awfully funny how the numbers didn’t stack up, and how comfortable some demographics feel–no shame or shyness about admitting to having voted more than once.

      • 1CatEye

        You are the LIV we fear. You know nothing, you understand nothing. Your whole view of the world is bumper sticker platitudes you mastered while studying for your transgender uptwinkles degree. Good luck with that.

      • Adam Baumb

        That’s the thing, liberal moron. We win elections — fair and square. Libtards steal elections. Proven fact. I’ll bet a steak dinner you idiots don’t realize the carnival huckster didn’t win a single state that has functional voter ID laws in place. Not one. When eligible voters are required to prove they are who they say they are, Democrats lose, and lose big. Where rampant fraud and abuse occurs, you’ll find the Democrats win by margins so unrealistic, even the Democratic pollsters are at a loss to explain how the margins were so tilted. They know the truth — so do we. Scum, the whole Democratic Party — and the lickspittle, low information morons comprising the base.

        As Jimmy Carter told CNN prior to the Oscars, while “90% of the
        contributions to the ideas and the consummation of the plan was
        Canadian,” the film “gives almost full credit to the American CIA.

        “The main hero,” said Carter, “was Ken Taylor, who was the Canadian
        ambassador who orchestrated the entire (rescue) process.” But, hey,

      1. Sailors are found on USN ships…not soldiers.

      4. Herman Cain wasn’t a prop. He was the #1 prospect until the Dem media took him out. But thank you for showing us how libs think.

      • Greg

        Do you have amnesia? It was a scheduled, written, televised speech to announce that major combat operations in Iraq were coming to an end (keep in mind this is 2003). It was George W. Bush’s idea to do a speech in front of a “Mission Accomplished” sign in the middle of two wars, it doesn’t matter who put it up. And Obama isn’t “chillin’ with Hollywood actors for a frickin’ award show.” And yes I do know what COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF entails, when it comes to Obama, it means finally capturing and killing the most wanted man in the world, while Bush was chillin’ on his ranch in Texas watching the middle east burn. Also, if you honestly think the Republican party had any intention of choosing Herman Cain for the Republican ticket, you guys are crazier than I thought. It wasn’t the Dems who nailed that coffin, it was the fact he had no idea what the Arab spring was while it was happening.

          Question: What policy change from Bush’s did Obama implement that actually lead to locating/killing bin Laden?
          Answer: None…in fact, it was Bush’s policies (specifically waterboarding) that yielded the information on his whereabouts.

          Thank you Seal Team Six and President George W Bush!

          — Why did it take 16 hours for pResident Scooter to make a decision to go or no go?
          — Why did he have to be pulled off the golf course after Panetta actually made the decision himself?
          — Why did Obammy insist on a memo being drawn up that would place the Blame on the Admirial in charge should anything go wrong with the mission?
          — Why does he still take all the credit?
          — Why didn’t he get ANY boost in his approval ratings from this? (Could it be that Americans could see through this idiot, and didn’t enjoy him spiking the football conatantly?)

          You have some Homework boy…better get to it.

    Best Line in Argo was when one of the CIA characters said Carter was shitting enough brick to build a house and all I could think of was at least he cared enough, as incompetent as he was, to shit some bricks. Our current president apparently rolled over and went to sleep while folks were actually being killed on his watch.

    It is not the ‘audacity of hope’ . It is – and always has been – the ‘audacity of hubris’. Glad America is starting to catch on…too bad they didn’t start thinking until after the election. Mrs. Romney wouldn’t have been so crass. Actually, Hollywood wouldn’t have asked the First Lady if Mr. Romney had won the election.

        Reagan actually had personal ties: Reagan was once President of the SAG, was once Governor of CA, where Hollywood is found, and was also personally acquainted with many of the people in the room.

      • stellatruman

        I’ll answer that one for you..what I have against her today in particular is her shameless spending of American tax dollars while she goes on her pop culture tour and talk show circuit. It is disgraceful for her to show up and present and a hollywood awards ceremony , wasting security personel ( more than was there for Ambassador Stevens ) while the people in this country are struggling to pay their mortgages, insurance, losing jobs, sequestration looming in a matter of is absolutely disgusting , in your face dispaly of wasted tax dollars.
        That’s just today…I am reasonably certain the two occupiers of the WH will piss me off tomorrow and until their sorry asses vacate

        • Greg

          ….you do realize that the numbers generated for the first family’s vacations are grossly inaccurate right? They’re all generated by right wing “news” sources. The Obama’s expenditure for travel is no more than past presidents. All of these “talking tours” are paid for by the money she gets for actually talking. I’ll ask again, without using false claims about the first family, what problems do you have with them? Also, why do suspend judgement about past presidents expenditure for security and travel? If you look at vacation time spent, George W. Bush has FAR more days than Obama will ever have. He spent so many, that he started calling his trips to the Ranch “business meetings” to divert attention. The facts can’t be disputed, just look up the numbers regarding vacation days.

    MY Guess: They were part of an Army Band or Army Chorus entertaining at the WH, and they were asked to stand behind the First Lady while she read her script. No blame to the Army- they are not in a position to say “no” and the NCOIC or Officer in Charge wouldn’t turn down the request either. Is it the right thing for her to request? Of course not.

    Yes, military personnel around the world got dolled up in their mess dress to honor Hollywood. After all, making a movie about a war is soooo much riskier than actually fighting one.

  • Adam Baumb

    You all need to remember who watches this load of horse manure in the first place. No rational American watches the Academy Awards unless there is absolutely nothing else to do anywhere on the planet. Secondly, the wife of the carnival huckster plays to the morons that voted for them — commonly known as a low information voter. Hollywood is a cesspool and the wife of the carnival huckster sanctions every bit of the slime coming out of it. Those service personnel should be ashamed — disciplined for allowing such a despicably patronizing gesture.

  • jensensah

    I don’t watch the Hollyweirdo love fest! It disgusts me. But when you have your so called first lady, and our half assed so called POTUS constantly partaking in these disgusting love fest….it only solidifies the fact, that Obummer and Mooochele, think they hit the lottery. This is nothing but one big disgusting GAME, to them. I am so sick of their narcissism. I could scream. Just think we have another 4 years of seeing their hateful, arrogant, mugs plastered everywhere! God help us all!

Is Daniel Day Lewis a better actor that Quvenzhané Wallis? Why the separate-but-equal…nay, apartheid between male and female actors. ONE award, Best Actor, where men and women compete against each other. Oh dear, I hope female actors are paid 100% the pat male actors receive – I dread to think that the FLOTUS would honor a dscriminatory industry with her presence. Don’t Cry For Me, Argentiiiiiina…

  • Guest

    Everyone knows that the left only views the military as props. Why should that have changed last night? My question is why did anyone on the right even watch? Anyone who claims to be a conservativve and yet finances leftist propaganda by attending movies or watching network television needs to truly question if they are truly conservative. Yes I know Limbaugh watched it last evening, and in my humble opinion he should not have.

  • Christopher Hayes

    there are five classes of liberals:
    1. wackos: the left fringe elements intent on imposing their ‘religious’ agenda on all of humanity.
    2. entitlements: people who believe it’s the government’s job to support them cradle to grave with every desire they have. Sandra Flukes who want everyone to pay for her personal condom budget.
    3. victim: they believe the white business man (or any person who succeeded on their own) is out to get them and if the government doesn’t protect them they will ultimately lose.
    4. elitist: those who feel they are morally and intelligently superior to you because they were educated in a liberal silo college, mostly lawyers and career politicians.
    5. jellyfish: those who feel their race, religion or creed infringes on others and so as to not offend they vote against their better judgement.

    ABC broadcast edits out Michelle Obama claim that Chicago teen was killed by an ‘automatic weapon’

    “She was caught in the line of fire because some kids had some automatic weapons they didn’t need,” the First Lady explained. “I just don’t want to keep disappointing our kids in this country. I want them to know that we put them first.”

    It is extremely unlikely that the murder weapon was an automatic handgun, an extremely rare occurrence, even in the streets of Chicago.

    For the broadcast, ABC’s Good Morning America producers edited out the First Lady’s “automatic weapon” line.

    She was standing out in a park with her friends in a neighborhood blocks away from where my kids grow – grew – up, where our house is. She had just taken a chemistry test. And she was caught in the line of fire because some kids had some automatic weapons they didn’t need. I just don’t want to keep disappointing our kids in this country. I want them to know that we put them first.

  • John Beam

    I’m not the least surprised by this. In fact, it is rather fitting of her to have ONLY WHITE service men and women there, because, as I have read about her behavior in the White House, M.O. treats military and secret service personnel like SERVANTS.

    I’m sure that when it was over, and the cameras were off, she dismissed them with “you all can go now…I’m through.”
