´I am so proud of her!´:
Michelle Obama praises Beyonce´s
stunning Super Bowl performance

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 2/4/2013 6:07:11 AM

First Lady Michelle Obama watched every tackle and fumble of this year´s Super Bowl along with the rest of the country, but it was Beyonce´s incendiary performance that she singled out for praise. ´Watching the Super Bowl with family and friends,´ Obama wrote on her Twitter feed. ´Beyonce was phenomenal! I am so proud of her!´ Launching the show with a strong performance of ´Crazy in Love´ complete with a guitar flaming as it played out its solo, Beyonce proved her doubters wrong by singing live one week after the controversy over her lip-synching at the Presidential Inauguration.

Comments:
She´s so proud of Beyonce? Why? Is she her secret mother? Her voice coach? Her rip-off-your-clothes expert? Just what is Michelle taking credit for?

I guess she missed Alicia Keys. I guess Obama wasn´t on fire anymore.

I was exposed to some of the weirdness as I switched between channels, and all I could think of was Ancient Rome, games and spectacles. We are in big trouble in this country.

These people have to stick their nose in everything even if their comments are totally misplaced.They also want you to know they´re still knee deep in celebrity worship to stay in touch with the low info crowd.

She was basically a Michele Jackson with breasts! Where was the originality? The music was simple; she kept repeating the same words over and over again for the most part! And, she was lip syncing at times with her last song. I also think that her show put so much strain on the electrical system that her show is the reason that there was a black out in the second half.

Michelle Obama watched with family and friends - as Beyonce stripped down to a negligee, gyrated like a poll dancer, had crouch busting movement (watch close ups if you dare), screamed to top of her lungs, slung hair back and forth. AND MICHELLE WAS PROUD.

"Proud"? Why would Mrs. Obama be "proud"? That is a completely unusual use of the word.

Unless, perhaps, Mrs. Obama meant that Beyonce´ is a "credit to her race"...

(wow, haven´t heard, or even thought, that in a very long time)

Could someone please point out to me what exactly has Moochelle Obama done on her own in her life, I mean besides voluntarily surrendering her law license to avoid disbarment, or working at a basically no show job at a hospital after her fake husband was elected to public office, that makes her an authority figure whose stamp of public approval of a shimmying, shaking, scantily clad mediocre singer is necessary? Beyonce was about as interesting as watching clothes drying. It was awful garbage designed to appeal to the lowest instincts of our celebrity rotten culture.

Even is she wasn´t known for her childish and hateful "Take that mitches" I wouldn´t have watched that overrated pole dancer.

As soon as halftime began, I switched to TCM and watched The Music Man and kept watching until the power outage was over.

After a few minutes, I went and took my meds. Did not need to watch a gentlemens club act. I wondered where the dance pole was as Beyoncy started humping the microphone. Not a good act to show the kids that were watching the big game. What a bunch of trash.

Beyonce was beyond tasteless. Vulgar, promiscuous and blatantly flaunting uninhibited sexuality. We thought that her performance would be followed by a PSA from Kathleen Sebelius on how ObamaCare now provides free condoms and abortifacients to sexually active people of all sexual preferences.

It´s funny how the media narrative is that Beyonce was great but if you read the message boards of the internet-based media, the comments about her by ordinary posters are largely negative. This includes the liberal internet news sites.

What you have is a case of the media manufacturing a narrative which then gets repeated along the chain of media outlets. You only need one or two writers to have formed the narrative but it gets amplified along the chain so that is appears as if everybody is thinking along the same lines.

It´s the liberal media narrative trick.

Sick and tired of all these million-dollar payday "acts" getting praise for what I thought was their craft. Geez, Michelle, what are you proud of - the fact that she actually SANG?! That is even suspect. How exactly would it be easier to sing live when you are gyrating all over the stage as opposed to standing still at the inauguration. I think she lip-synched again last night. Truly don´t care about this woman or any of her ghetto connections in the WH.

Same thing with these sports players - they make a touchdown and they act like they cured cancer. Then you have the players, making millions, who can´t catch a pass to save their life. As long as we fill the diversity quotas, I guess that´s OK.

It was a boring show. We´ve seen the same bump and grind routine hundreds of times, the music was repetitive dance club noise. We´ve seen the same light show, the same backup singers, the same strutting, the same yelling audience. I think it´s more interesting to watch the stage being taken off the field after the show. MO´s idiotic tweet is just a cherry on top of the idiocy.

There was one lovely moment at halftime - one that many of us were concerned about for a number of reasons.

The choir of children from Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, sang "America the Beautiful" in their clear, lovely voices. Pure. Then Jennifer Hudson joined them as soloist for a repeat of the first verse. And for most of her solo, the camera remained on the children.

Jennifer Hudson showed so much more class than Beyonce, appearing in a straight white calf-length skirt and black blouse, her hair pulled back. Simple elegance. Her voice is magnificent. She can sing rings around Beyonce.

No tweeting by Mooch about that.

A truly emetic announcement from the grim but indispensable Swedish flatpack furniture emporium IKEA: they are considering changing the recipe of their most popular food line--meatballs--in order to help save the world from global warming. [Snip] IKEA--the place you go to, reluctantly, because the furniture is so cheap and practical, not because you want to save the planet for Mother Gaia--actually employs a "head of sustainability"? If that´s not a strong dump signal for the stock, I don´t know what is. What´s worse, though, is that IKEA actually admits to allowing the kind of food it serves in its restaurants

The price of chocolate could soar over the next few years as surging demand puts further pressure on the global cocoa crisis--and experts predict the demand could become unsustainable by 2020. Experts are warning that a growing taste for chocolate in Asia--particularly in China--means cocoa farmers will need more help to provide a greater amount to export or manufacturers will be forced to use less cocoa in their products. It is predicted chocolate prices will soar to keep up with the rising demand--otherwise consumers will increasingly be offered products filled with substitutes, such as nuts and fruits, to ‘pack out’ chocolate bars.

In 1925, Rudyard Kipling wrote an uncharacteristically restrained and sombre short story called The Gardener. It tells of a woman’s search for her illegitimate son, who goes missing in action on the Western Front. After the Armistice, she learns that he has been killed, and is buried in a military cemetery. Arriving there, she finds a man planting flowers in the earth and asks him where she might find her “nephew”. The man looks at her “with infinite compassion,” and tells her “Come with me, and I will show you where your son lies”. As she leaves the graveyard, she

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.
