In response to skeeter20's comment:
Laura Bush was featured in an Oscars broadcast, but not as a presenter.
You make it sound like she gave a personal message to the gathered hollywood minions.
That's quite the leap in logic from the one sentence I posted above, but whatevs.
For some people, everything is politically motivated, I guess.
Donnie Duetch, a hard left guy, AND OBama supporter, does not share your difficulty in discering my point:
"When asked by Morgan if the first lady should have been included, Deutsch said, “absolutely not.” His main argument hinged on the notion that Obama was essentially an unwelcome political intrusion. At an event that focuses exclusively upon entertainment and film, he argued that she added an unneeded political dynamic to the evening.
“As far as I’m concerned, she was an uninvited guest,” Deutsch said. “Now what I mean by that is, you have to give the consumer, the viewer, the ultimate respect. They have tuned in to watch movie stars, to watch movies. And all of a sudden, politics is thrown at them.”
He went on to say that the tone was also unpalatable. Describing himself as a Democrat in an effort to showcase that his views aren’t rooted in political bias against the first lady, Deutsch said that Obama’s brief speech had a “monarch quality” and an “elitist flavor to it.”
