´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.

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.

1. The BBC knows it´s in trouble and is desperate to prove it still has meaning. The BBC did a good job last night, wheeling out its political big gun--David Dimbleby--to moderate in his arch, feline, Flashman-esque way, not showing any noticeable left-wing bias and following up with some integrated coverage from Paxo on BBC Newsnight. But gosh wasn´t the BBC eager to tell us how well it was doing? The BBC stands for everything Farage hates and no doubt cordially loathes Farage. Unfortunately, the way the political debate is changing, the BBC can no longer afford to marginalise its nemesis

An artist from Wales has become the latest face of the ‘NHS refugees’ forced to flee to England to get decent healthcare. Mariana Robinson, 60, has a life-threatening pancreatic condition and needs a biopsy before it can be diagnosed and the correct treatment given. [Snip] The Mail revealed two weeks ago that longer waiting times and poorer access to drugs mean thousands of Welsh patients are now flocking across the border to be treated in English hospitals. The number of Welsh cancer patients doing so has quadrupled from just 3,471 a decade ago to 15,450 last year.

Nigel Farage was tonight accused of being ´dangerous´ after admitting he ´admires´ Russian President Vladimir Putin and defending Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. Two snap polls showed the Ukip leader easily triumphed in the second live TV debate with Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg, in which he urged voters to join a ´People´s Army´ to topple the political establishment in Brussels. But Mr Farage was forced on to the defensive after claiming Assad did not use chemical weapons against the Syrian people. Mr Clegg condemned Mr Farage as ´dangerous´ and accused him of ´conning´ the British people.

Spam sushi, anyone? Canned wartime

Spam is back in vogue say New York restaurateurs, who are serving the wartime staple atop of sushi, salads and even straight up out of the tin as a side. John Daley, the head chef and co-owner of New York Sushi Ko, told the Gothamist that he likes to use the tinned meat mix - which retails for around $2.50 per 12oz - when rustling up his fancy $150 tasting menu. One diner who tried his ´Spam fried rice´ creation topped with seared tuna and pineapple, described it as ´so good´, ´savory´ and a ´little bit [like] oxtail´.

This is the moment a suspected Irish bomber blew himself up after it was believed that he forgot about the clocks going forward an hour for British Summer Time. Police are investigating whether the man, who was allegedly seen running from the scene covered in blood, had injured himself in the blast because he had got his timings wrong when the clocks changed. Officers suspect the bomber planted an explosive device under a Volvo SUV in the centre of Dublin and that it had either gone off too early, or he had returned to the car to investigate why it

In the nightmare world of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, three vast totalitarian states were permanently at war. Big Brother needed outside enemies to rally the masses behind his rule. As ever, real life suggests that Orwell was on to something: authoritarian states do seem more likely to go to war; democracies, by contrast, very rarely fight one another. The country which might have modelled itself on Orwell’s vision, North Korea, duly tells its people that they are permanently on the brink of war. Whenever the tension with South Korea eases, North Korea always turns the temperature back up again. Only

Nigel Farage accused Nick Clegg of “wilfully lying to the British people” and warned that the European project could end in bloodshed during the pair’s second debate on Wednesday night. In a heated and confrontational televised debate the leader of the UK Independence Party warned that extremists would resort to “violence” unless the European Union “ends democratically”. Early polls showed that Mr Farage won the debate comfortably, securing 68 percent of public support in a YouGov poll and 69 percent according to ICM. Following the debate, Mr Farage said: “I’m very pleased with the result and surprised about how dishonest

If the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) had been set up to investigate an apparent fall in global temperatures it is not hard to guess what its latest report would assert: falling temperatures will lead to mass starvation, millions of deaths from hypothermia, the smothering of northern cities with ice sheets. I have long come to realise how environmental science works: it starts from the premise that everything in the natural world is under threat, that mankind is to blame and that only drastic changes can save it. It is bad news if temperatures rise, bad news if they

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement. Last week, Eich attempted to dispel fears on whether he would support equality as the head

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

Dem Rep.: ‘Members of Congress

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

5 Reasons Why Republicans
Should Say No to Jeb 2016

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December

At a press conference to push legislation to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) criticized industrialists David and Charles Koch, calling them “shadow billionaires” who use their wealth to “rig our political system.” Reid’s sharp comments come on a day when the Wall Street Journal published a commentary written by Charles Koch, in which he described the brothers’ decision to get involved in politics to preserve the individual freedom and free markets that he said are the pillars of the American republic. “These two men are a pair of shadow billionaires spending

Senate majority leader Harry Reid has a whole page on his official Senate.gov website devoted to revealing "THE FACTS ABOUT THE KOCH BROTHERS." One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid´s website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don´t pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White House official
