‘oopsie: fox unwittingly eviscerates reagan over obama easter egg’

Politicususa: On Fox and Friends, guest Laura Ingraham kicked off FNC’s Easter attack on Barack and Michelle Obama by suggesting that Obama is full of ego for handing out autographed commemorative Easter eggs as part of the White House Easter Egg Roll. Ingraham claimed that Laura Bush never did this….Only the Obamas would be so arrogant as to give away autographed Easter Eggs to the kids:

In fact, the tradition of handing out autographed Easter Eggs at the White House event began with…….Ronald Reagan (“Autographed eggs were hidden in the Egg hunt for kids to find during President Ronald Reagan’s reign. By affixing signatures to the commemorative egg, President George W. Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush became the first to do so”):

Corbis Images: Children play on the lawn of the White House during an Easter Egg Rolling Contest being sponsored by President Ronald Reagan. (April 4, 1983)

Desperate wingnuts sure love embarrassing themselves, eh? :lol:

Fred reminded me of similar previous outrages:

‘Obama has no class – he puts his feet on the Oval Office desk! Can you EVER remember a Republican President doing that?!’

‘Obama has no class – he throws a ball around the Oval Office! Can you EVER remember a Republican President doing that?!’

‘Obama has no class – sometimes he doesn’t wear a jacket in the Oval Office! Can you EVER remember a Republican President doing that?!’

‘Obama has no class – he wore flip-flops in Hawaii! Next thing he’ll be wearing Crocs in the White House!”

‘You know, Obama is so classless it wouldn’t surprise me if he eats his meals off the sacred Oval desk!”

    There is an endless supply of these stupid trumped up pseudo-scandals. My all time favorite was the claim that the logo used for the the Nuclear Summit arranged by President Obama looked Islamic. In actuality, the logo was based on the Bohr model of the atom. Never mind……

    Salon made a list of some of the pseudo-scandals of 2010. I am sure the Easter Egg pseudo-scandal will have lots of company in 2011.

      My personal favorite was the feet on the oval office desk. They went on endlessly how it was an outrageous show of disrespect that no other president ever did blah blah when a simple google search turned up pictures of Ford and G Dubya Bush doing the same thing….lol!

      Ladyhawke this is a great link. I remember koshats talking about how condescending Obama was to poor joe. Joe the man they did not even want to be vp. Lots of memories relived with the salon article.

      Ladyhawke, I have a link to PM Carpenter’s site. It is very small, but he is a really good writer who is totally supportive of PBO. He has the following article up on his page today. It is about the loony Michele B. It is the second item–C.P. Boneheadedness. Guess who he is talking about?

        Thanks Dorothy. That pm carpenter commentary was chilling. It really is scary to think that Michelle B., who is unhinged and deranged, is even being taken seriously as a potential presidential candidate. She’s just plain nuts. And that doesn’t say much about her supporters.

    What else can you call these people over there at Fox, and Laura Ingraham, I call them liars. They don’t care about telling the truth when it comes to this President and First Lady. They know that the people who listen to them will believe whatever comes out of their mouth, even if they are telling lies. Why? Because they hate that Black Family in that White House. Thank God for the people who shows and have common sense. I disapprove of GW Bush because of the Iraq war, and his policies. But I showed Laura Bush respect. They never have shown Michelle Obama any respect, never have.My support for the President is still strong. And I don’t mind telling anyone who will listen how much I am a fan of Michelle Obama.

      I will say the same also. I have friends who are so surprise when I talk how decent, intelligent, and warm I felt Former First Lady, Laura Bush was in the WhiteHouse. (I still think the same about her) And these are ultra-conservativess)they told me loudly one day), but this blew them away. My point to them was how respect is important no matter what is behind your name as you take that slip of paper into the voting booth. It amazing me at times when people can’t separate their political stands from the human respect that is due to those who show it everyday. Respect. I do not have to agree/like your policies, but I must respect you when you display goodness, humility, intellect, common courtesy, and love for others. It it plain and simple. Michelle, our First Lady does nothing but show intellect, love, smiles of caring for others, humbleness, respect for humans all over the world, and a love to share the Whitehouse like I have never seen before. I think hatred, bitterness, and smallness are very ugly and telling aspects of ones inner-core..

    This is preposterous. It is no wonder that FauxSnooze is losing viewers. I think I saw that their rating was down like 25% this last year. Maybe people are finally beginning to understand what hate mongers they are. They are still number one, but how many times can you hear the same lies being belched by that motley crew of idiots.

    When I read Jonathan Alter book on Obama, apparently Murdock said he was going to vote for PBO, and Roger Ailes(?) told Rupert he would quit if Rupert did that. Guess who won? The man who said his goal was to bring down Obama. Racist, you think?

  5. April 2, 2011 at 1:57 pm

    All of this traditional white house information is all so new to me also. I never paid any attention to any of this holiday stuff that has gone on in the White House until 2008. That year was a turning point for me wanting to see and to know all the celebrations . Maybe these “know nothing” people are in my same shoes of not paying attention in previous years. How does that saying go, “People might think you are a fool, but open your mouth and they will know you are a fool.” Ask me something that happened on H.W.Bush’s watch and I couldn’t tell you a single thing;(hardly even remember who was married to whom: Laura married to H.W., no Barbara married to G.W., oh no that’s his mother.) ask me something about my President and his family now, and I can give you every detail, read every credible book about him, and even know the color of the dress Mrs. Obama wore for his first State of the Union.

      President Obama possesses many gifts, I think one of his most potent attributes is his ability to inspire and engage people.
      Your story, Graciouslady, is the same as mine. I was a political ostrich, with my head in the sand until late in GWB’s second term. My wake up call came from Barack Hussein Obama. If he can engage enough of the divided 98% of our electorate….he will upset the imbalance of power that exists in the current status quo. Our system will once again function as it was designed to.
      I am sticking with the O-Team, and will exercise my rights and responsibilities. That is the power of O.

I don’t know if there is a connection, but it’s not a good look for catholics! Factor in Pat Buchanan, bill O’reilly who according to him spends every easter at the pope’s vatican and of course little jerk Hannity, and it is a very poor line-up!

    Good Afternoon Dear Friends and Chipsticks:

    These people are just liars. Also they are filled with hate. They are very, very angry that an African American man is the President of the United States. They are very, very angry that an African American family is living in the Whitehouse. They need all of us to call them on their pure hatred. It is really sad. I am old enough to just be sick everyday of my life now, because of ALL of this hate, but I am not stupid enough to believe that it is nothing more than PURE HATE. Once they come to recognize where their hearts are filled with hate rather than enjoying this Presidency and a decent, very intelligent and calm President who just wants to do his job that we elected him to do, they will forever be hypocrites. They talk about God, but these people DO NOT KNOW the Lord that I read about. So let us enjoy our President, pray hard, and disspell their constant lies. IT IS A SHAME!!!! I am so angry, I am going to go on and make that LARGE Banana Pudding that I was not going to make.

Bless you for all the love you share.

        Thank you so very muchSue. I rarely speak like I did here because I have found that when I allow people who come across to me as haters my heart just is filled with pain. My dear mother and grandparents taught me to listen, reason, and above all pray and love even my enemies, and I saw my mother and grandparents actually practice what they told me. But today my heart was just so full, and I had to speak it. That was what was present in my heart. However, I always try to replenish what I have allowed these types to take from my restful peace of mind. The banana pudding is sweet, and it is the recipe of my precious mother, so I felt that making it and eating it would refresh my heart, fill me up with loving memories of seeing her in the kitchen making something lovely, delicious, and sharing it with others. You know Sue, if we could just do this type of loving, it would be so good for all of us. I have to maintain a loving heart because medically, it is faulty, but the hating constantly on this President and his family is the ugliest that I have seen in my sixty-six years on this earth, and I have seen and experienced some ugly hate in my years. It does hurt so much, Sue. But with kind and loving human beings like you, we will make it. Thank you. I have the music and my candles on now in my home and a lot of prayers with tears,, but I will continue to support our President. I think, Lord, if I feel this way at times, what must President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama feel? We will make it, I know. Thanks for your kindness and thanks to Chipsticks for this wonderful site. Have a great weekend Sue.

          HZ…You know you can always let off a little steam here, just release the valve. Think of it as necessary maintenance for good heart health. People here understand. Your generous spirit is clearly evident. I’m inclined to internalize alot of the ugliness I see in the world. When things hurt that are outside of my control, I cry. I have never felt it to be a weakness, or even inappropriate, but rather a way to unburden my heart, creating space for more generous and positive feelings. I think it’s why so many of the videos that Chipsticks shares with us seem to prompt the flow of my tears. It ultimately is a source of comfort, a good thing. Being able to share here, both commenting and reading, absorbing all the evidence of positive interaction and reaction that surrounds our President and FLOTUS is invaluable, and good for the heart. Chipsticks is medicine for our hearts.

          President Obama and FLOTUS are exceptionally strong people, and I suspect they anticipated some of the ugliness that is being directed at them. Even still, they need and deserve our prayers, our support and our voices. This is not their battle to be fought alone. I try to focus on the millions of Americans that support, and even love them. It blunts, although doesn’t erase, the nastiness. Being kind, being generous, being loving is a choice, that benefits both ourselves and others. I happen to think it is the responsible way to show up in the world, that it does make a difference, and that even in small ways, it benefits the greater good.

Several people quickly co-signed, talked about how despicable and unAmerican the President is. It took me all of about 10seconds to pull multiple pictures of the President saluting. Of course I got crickets after that. SMH

    These people are incredibly mad because they cannot find anything real to blast the president on. They were SO hoping they could find corruption in his background and impeach him. Remember Issa bragging that this was “the most corrupt administration” and he would be investigating and bringing indictments? Well, he is amazingly quiet. There’s nothing to find. So….they are making up things that they know will get to a certain portion of the population. These targets are,of course, the low information people who accept anything anti-Obama they see or hear. All these things are tired. Before the election, a man I worked with said he was concerned because Obama didn’t put his hand over his heart when he said the pledge of allegiance. I found a picture where he did just that, and showed him where the lies were debunked. We have to do this. I just can’t say enough…factcheck.org is a wonderful source. We have to be the ones to point out the lies. This group reminds me of 13 year olds…..always talking behind someone’s back telling lies, and throwing a tantrum when they don’t get their way!

      These symbolic gestures like the hand over heart with the pledge of allegiance, or the flag pin on the lapel, or saluting the troops – these are all empty gestures really. May of these Republicans do all these things, but we see that they voted against providing health care for the 9/11 responders. We see that they have held the American people hostage in order to protect the tax cuts for the corporate fat cats – even though many of them keep their money in tax havens or aren’t even American. We’ve seen these Republicans willing to put American lives in danger, by promoting anti-Muslim sentiment which just perpetuates the hatred of Americans around the world. The symbols mean nothing if the heart isn’t committed,too.

      IMO Oprah is not loyal to anyone when it comes to her show. And I don’t buy that it’s only show business. This woman has so much money and celebrity, it’s apparent it has overcome any sense of decorum she may have had. Funny, she can have the likes of him on her show, but wouldn’t ever have the likes of Louis Farrakhan on. Now, in light of all the shit Farrakhan has been dishing about my President, he can go suck a pig. I was just making a point. I remember when Arsenio Hall had him on and not much later, he had no show. So, it goes to show that the corporate entertainment industry pulls all the strings still, even with Oprah, or she would not have to stoop so low as to have the likes of Palin and Trump–2 people spewing racism against the President she so supported…..once…and I do wonder “if” she so supported him or wanted to be known for doing so.

        In addition, April 4th is also the 43rd anniversary of the death of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King. Seems more fitting she would have a show about the work of Dr. King and countless other humanitarians, especially in this toxic climate concerning our President, as an African American, and the people who are working to make the King dream a reality. But no, not Oprah. Such an accommodationist. Stopped watching that fluff show years ago. I liked Phil Donohue better.

        For you, Dorothy, I will give her the benefit of doubt. But, if she is so true, as you say, had you watched when Palin was on the show? How did Oprah handle her? If I am mistaken I’ll certainly apologize, but my beef with Oprah has more to do with her lack of substantive material she presents on her show. I have no interest in Hollywood, so I don’t get anything from her show. Phil Donohue was all that in his early shows…..loved him. But when Oprah came along, she blew up big, and he had to find frivolous means to keep his audience, thus he tanked. But I always found him provocative, engaging, personable, and brave. I guess to each his own. Also, if she thinks of PBO as so great, I would like to see her speak up more concerning the dilemmas he faces ongoing. For instance, the issue of the continuing tax cuts for the filthy rich which he had to compromise on last year. I was so hoping to see Oprah take the charge of stating publicly how she and others like her don’t need those cuts….you know, be an advocate of sorts, for the middle class and the poor in the country, and the financial health of the nation. I thought she had the advantage of doing so as she just does not need anymore money, IMO, so she could risk disappointing her sponsors, for a noble cause. In other words, put your money where your mouth is.

          I think she should stay apolitical, I think the Republicans labeling her a King Maker is yet another means of attempting to diminish PBO. I think that is wrong. Tackle the social issues….education/poverty/obesity….be a conduit for information, leave the politics out of it.

          I wonder why she considers Donald Trump an interesting guest? I won’t watch….I was upest when she had Sarah Palin on, not because she did, but because she didn’t challenge anything she said. Palin’s whole public persona is a fraud, that is easily verified through a little investigative work. The MSM was invested in promoting and perpetuating the fraud. Oprah participated in the game. For ratings, for the bottom line, they are as shameless as Palin.

            I am not an Oprah fan, but to her defense, she did not pick Trump/Chump to be on her show. I listened to a snippet of the Gail King show on Friday, and she was talking to Oprah’s head producer/chief of staff. She mentioned that she got a message from one her producers that they had extended an invitation to Trump/Chump to appear on the show for a makeover, and they had not received a decline at the time of the Gail King taping. She said she had to text Oprah to let her know that if she heard that the Oprah show had extended an invitation to Trump/Chump that it was real, and it wasn’t an April Fool’s joke.

            So, she didn’t actually pick this Trump/Chump character to be a guest on her show – her producers did.

              Theo67, that sounds like spin to me. Doesn’t Oprah have sway over her producers? From my angle, I suspect that is spin, attempting to deflect criticism since Chump has been lying about, and bigoted towards PBO.

          Ed, thank you so much for your support. I never watch Oprah. I did years ago, but I do not watch much television. Too much hatred. I cannot abide having PBO attacked–particularly by the left.

          Oprah is a woman of color who has been very successful. I like that. She is not perfect, but I know that she really adores both of the Obamas. Her show is not about left or right. It is just a public airing of people and subjects. She has given much to the black community. One of my personal favorite things she has done is to sponor the black high school band that she paid for their trip to a national competition.

          All I can say is, thank you for giving her a chance. Ed, I know you did not trust me in the beginning, but I love Obama too–with all of my heart and soul. good night.

        Whoever watches this, let us know how is works out. Donald Trump is not worth my time, I really don’t think Oprah is going to expose him either, as much as I would cheer that effort on. She is our friend, IMO, I don’t consider her influence to be political in nature. Of course, I might be underestimating the scope of her influence.

      It is actually a repeat! This show with Trump originally aired a month or so ago! It was quite senseless actually with Trump trotting out his many children from the 3 wives and every one of them telling their well-rehearsed tale of how great a father he is and of course a preview of Melania your potential first lady and her Baron! It was funny to watch the older children from the first wife Ivanna throwing dagger looks at the other half siblings!

        Audry, I think this show is a new one where they are going to have him on alone and do a “make-over’ on Trump. I also saw the show that you are speaking of, and I thought oh how they planned that one by having all of his family there with him and trying to pose before America and the world what they feel will be our next President. I thought it was well rehearsed by the Trumps also., I wondered, where is Oprah on this one. Did Trump just get Oprah.Then remember he came out after that and starting talking about our President’s birth? We got it, Trump.

    I always say money is the fastest way to seperate a person from their principles. Oprah is business. And as the saying goes, “It’s nothing personal, only business.” I understand the logic…but I chose to stay connected with the personal.

    No one has posted about the great Memorial Day/Tomb of the Unknown Scandal of 2010. Remember the “Obama the first President to not place a wreath at Arlington on Memorial Day in over 100 years!!” Except for just about every President over the past 100 years… Clinton being one of if not the only with perfect attendance over his 8 years.

    Sue, I concur on your statement. I was discussing this same item of Donald Trump being on Oprah with my best friend, and we could not figure what would be Oprah’s motivation for having Trump on again especially since in his recent rant about our President’s birth has been so hateful and just plain ugly. I have seen Oprah with President Obama and First Lady Michelle at her home in Monticito way before he was a candidate etc., and we all know that she endorsed him as a candidate and supported him and still does; so what is up?How can you really care about a person, and invite a liar and ugly spirit into your home knowing what is at his core in his words?
    We all have seen Oprah “dress down” some people on her show in the past;so what is she doing with this one. So my friend and I thought that we would watch it just to see if Oprah would bring up the question about the lastest comments of Mr. Trump. We will see next week. I remember watching her with G.W., and before they went on, remember she said to him, “You know I think we can make something good come out of this Katrina thing…blah, blah. ” and she did broach the subject on that line, but not enough to my liking, but I liked that she brought the subject up. Hopefully, she will just come out and say it to Trump. otherwise, I do not understand why she is having him on. Oprah does not need Donald Trump even if they are friends. My mother always said make sure you understand your own definition of friends before you start hanging out with them, otherwise, you might attract something that might make your life miserable inside after they are long gone from your presence.

    Derp herp duhhhh!!! look at those former potus’s,, My dear granny would say “bless their hearts”. Between the b list movie actor and The court appointed worst president ever….. G Dubya I can’t even get mad. The double standards will never go away but tbqh, our first president of color will remain better than all the rest, the faux news crowd knows this that’s why they can only lie and fake no knowledge of the facts.

    So the show is a repeat, good. I didn’t see it the first time, and I still don’t plan to watch it this time. I have nothing wrong with Trump going on any show discussing what he disagree with the President about, you know the issues. But to be sitting up there lying and jumping on this birther b.s.is a low down dirty disgrace. Now before I go, that picture of G.W. Bush with those shorts and shoes on is terrible.

    Jazz….I read the article by Leonard Pitts. And it’s a article which I could have written myself because I have said the exact same thing so many times. My family and I are always discussing this. This birther B.S. is racism, they don’t like this man because he is black. So for Donald Trump to attach his wagon to that birther B.S., you know what that makes Trump, a racists. I agree that these haters will talk about how you can’t criticize this President without people shouting racism. That is so wrong. That’s like saying how black people are always playing the race card. Who know racism better than the people who have suffer it all their life. Disagree with the President’s policies, fine. If Trump wants to go on any show and talk about how he would do things if he was President, that’s what the sensible people expect. But we don’t expect these haters, we don’t expect Donald “in love with himself’ Trump to be allow to get on tv and just flat out lie.

    Keep up the good work you do, I know I am one blogger that really appreciates your work.

    Crocs in the White House? Heck, he was on his way to golf, right?

    What got me was the Seal of the President of the United States, on the socks. If it’s not abuse of the presidential seal, it should be.

    This is off topic sort of but that bunny behind Nancy Reagan brings to mind the comment by the father in A Christmas Story when Ralphie had on that pink bunny pajamas……”He looks like a deranged Easter bunny”…LOL. That rabbit probably scared a lot of little kids :-D
