    When so many Americans are scrimping this holiday season ... where's the media scrutiny of the opulent rich, like oprah, and the obama's ??? oprah shrewdly has thrown enough crumbs to charities, and the occupier types ... and, bought herself enough P.R. in the media, to absolve herself of all associations with the one percernters. People all but forget her years with barack and michelle in Wright's anti-Amercan, racist church, or her voracious appetite for additional power, with 'The One', who she promoted to death for the Presidency. Yes, I believe in self made success in America, but this woman is a blatant hypocrite. While falsly appearing as an icon for free enterprise, and personally indulging in the extravagances it has provided her, behind the scenes, she campaigns for socialist candidates, like barack obama. Like most elitists, it's ok for her and the obama's to live a life of luxury, as long as the rest of us live off their table scraps, and view them from afar in awe. oprah made her fortunes off middle class white women, who loyally watched her show over the years, while behind the scenes, she embraced racist policies, like the 'black values system' in wright's racist church ... the same church which gave racist, louis farrakhan, a life time achievement award, while oprah, and the obma's were faithfully attending every Sunday. In today's world, big money, and the biased mainstream media are extremely adept at covering the tracks of famous hypocrites, whether it be oprah, or even the President, and michelle.

      A person was hired to replace the photographs of my mother's grandchildren in her nursing home room and replace them with a portrait of an African-American child, which confused my mother. I asked her where her photos were. She didn't know. She didn't know that someone replaced her photos with the other portrait. This was a race crime. She was asleep in the nursing home when the person caused this. When I inquired it was discovered that the cleaning woman replaced her grandchildren's photographs with the portrait of the African-American child.

      When I asked the woman, she replied in fake tears for my mother's audience, "I though she'd like it!" I said, "Why didn't you ask her before removing her property and replacing it? My mother is right here – ask her." She failed to ask, so I did, "Mother, do you want this portrait or your grandchildren's photos?" My mother responded, "I want my grandchildren's photographs. I don't know who that child is! She's lovely, but she's not my grandchild."

      I asked, "Do you want me to take it down?" She said, "I want my grandchildren's photos. I don't know who this child is."

      I removed the portrait and handed it to the cleaning woman who sulked and walked out of her room.
      That nursing home was the
      Rochester Manor in Rochester, New Hampshire in July of 2008.

        How does that seemly fake story have anything to do with once again american tradition of the first lady welcoming the christmas tree...that several first ladies have done before her. Every single thing this first lady do, wear, say is always wrong. I am over it. I love the fact Michlle Obama is a strong and confident woman and she realize what and who she is dealing with. So she does not take them serious...and I wouldnt either. I love you MIchelle Obama you are an amazing first lady your style and grace is priceless...and better yet you doing it your way and on your own terms..I love it!

      To Howard and American Citizen (above) What the heck do your ridiculous rants and those that follow here on this sound-off page have to do with the White House Christmas tree? – We get a big one every year. This was donated from a farmhouse front yard. They did a story on it (on the real news). Have you all gone completely mad or are you just worked up from listening to the made-up tirades from the dropouts running the hate-tain-ment media – don't you know it is all just made-up BS? This is really getting out of control. Grow up and do some research of your own, listen to the real news and not the "cult" stuff. Do you know that Gadhaffi asked his remaining followers to not listen to the "mainstream media" and claimed that only he had the truth, that the rest of the world was lies? Now what does this sound like? You realize that cult leaders tell their followers that the claims of those in the outside or "mainstream" world are false and that only they have the truth – how gullible are some Americans these days? All of this hype and hatred is made up vilification and myths to promote the agenda of those doing the "telling" – why are you buying into all of this?

      • Howard

        Sounds like you're the one who has been drinking the obama kool aid Peg. And, your ridiculous analogy about Ghaddafi and the main stream media is laughable. YOU are obviously a brain washed, blindly devoted obama stooge. Americans are beginning to see through the obama B.S., and his demise is coming ... so, Peg, it's up to you as to whether or not you go down with the Obama ship ... because it's definitely sinking.

      • Peg - Az

        In response to Howard's comment towards me, in addition to getting a degree in Business and Economics, I also worked in research. I have a background in psychology where I studied things like propaganda and persuasive techniques, if you feel that the rantings of dropouts on talk radio are a better source of "information" and actually believe that the mainstream media "conspiracy" exists in the size and scope of "reality itself" and that only those few who tell you, "what you want to hear," have the "real truth." Then I think "you" are the one who needs to "look around" and get reacquainted with the real world.

        November 26, 2011 at 6:39 pm |
      • Howard

        To Peg ... so, you got a degree in Business and economics. Then what did you do? Did you use your education to build a business, and employ other Americans? Or, do you live and work in the ivory tower of academic America ... where, instead of having to make it in the real world, you can't be fired, get automatic pay raises, tenure, and pensions. You say you studied propaganda, and you can't even recognize the obama / unions / main stream media propaganda machine ??? Well Peg, I have degrees too. And, instead of working in academia, and research, I built several business, which helped pay the salaries of many others. A completely inexperienced candidate, is promoted and sold to the the American public ... and even wins the Nobel Prize, for doing nothing. Staged events and photo ops abound. This empty suit, upstart, polarizes America, and preaches the downfall of all the conventional wisdom which built this country, before he came along. He never had a job, yet dictates anti-capitalist policies, which result in massive unemployment, a national credit downgrade, sinking real estate values, record gas prices, half a trillion dollar loans to losers like Solyndra, 4 Trillion dollars in additional debt, in just 3 years, etc., etc. etc. ... meanwhile the biased main stream media, who never vetted this foo in the first place !, continues to protect and support him ... and, you, a student of propaganda, can't even see what's going on in front of your eyes ... and, you think YOU are the one who has a grasp on reality !!! ... WAKE UP Peggy !!!

    This is not an episode of American Idol ... instead of choosing a President on the basis of popularity this time, we need a leader who has the experience, intellect, and judgment to get America back on track ... that's why Newt Gingrich is by far the best prospect for leading this country back to its former greatness !!!

    November 25, 2011 at 1:30 pm |
    • jean2009

      Newt Gingrich....Really!....that is the best laugh I've had....you really think the creep that left his wife dying of cancer is going to be President? So, you don't mind that the Family Values choice is working on wife #3? Or that, he thinks child labor laws are stupid? You don't mind that he was brought up on ethics charges by the house for miss using foundation funds? What about the $1.6 Million he took to lobby for Freddie Mac? You don't mind he was the architect of the CONTRACT ON AMERICA..... Paul Krugman is right: " Newt Gingrich is a Stupid Man's Idea of What a Smart Person Sounds Like."

      November 25, 2011 at 2:03 pm |
      • Howard

        You cackle about Newt's dying wife, while obama is killing America !!! Compared to the inept, community organizer, Newt is a genius. And, in response to your criticisms about Newt and his associations ... you might want to vet your phony messiah and your sacred cow icons ... like oprah. oprah shrewdly has thrown enough crumbs to charities, and the occupier types ... and, bought herself enough P.R. in the media, to absolve herself of all associations with the one percernters. People all but forget her years with barack and michelle in Wright's anti-Amercan, racist church, or her voracious appetite for additional power, with 'The One', who she promoted to death for the Presidency.

        Jean, your 'sacred cow', barack obama is a fraud. This corrupt fool, who promised transparency, and an end to biased favoritism, is guilty of deception, and crony capitalism, as well as destroying America's economy. Like most elitist hypocrites, it's ok for the obama's to live a life of luxury, as long as the rest of us live off their table scraps, and view them from afar in awe. The obama's embraced racist policies, like the 'black values system' in wright's racist church ... the same church which gave racist, louis farrakhan, a life time achievement award, while the obma's were faithfully attending every Sunday. obama relishes the use of divisieness and blame. He's too cowardly to ever take personal responsibility, and he has polarized this country more than any leader in our history. In today's world, big money, the biased mainstream media, and the blindly devoted, non-stop defending groupies, like you, are extremely adept at covering the tracks of hypocrites, like the obama's.

      • carol

        Are you a paid employee of Mother Jones? First of all, Gingrich's wife asked him for a divorce months before she went into the hospital to have a benign tumor removed. His ex is alive at the ripe old age of 75.
        His "contract for America" helped Republicans take of Congress after 40 years.....maybe dumb to Democrats.
        He has been a sought after congressman to be an advisor to many corporations, healthcare organization since 1999 because of his experience in governmen. If you believe your definition of a lobbyist fits Gingrich then Obama has many lobbyists in his administration.

        while Slick WIlly was also
        Doing his Wife,,, I mean doing his wife good deeds and stuff,,,

        and yet some Americans want to change the
        Number of Terms a President can hold to
        3 instead of 2
        so that Slick Willy can become the Next Black President (again)?????

        I need a good cigar from a good humidor at this point,,,

        I hear there is a call from DemoRats to get Commie-in-Chief to not run for President!

        Get out!

        Yup,,,, A serious attempt too!

        I think they want the Jilted Wife of the Ex-President, Bill Clinton, to run for President!

        Get out!

        Yup,,, How many Obama CHEERLEADERS here would rather Cheer for Hillary!

        Hillary,,, HILLary,,,, HILLARY!!!!

        You'd have to be a real sucker to believe anything out of the obama administration these days. They spend most of their time getting campaign kickbacks from crony capitalists, doing damage control and cover ups, or conning democratic stooges out of their money ( for barack's BILLION dollar reelection campaign). Obama has even stooped to the level of hawking obama t-shirts and tote bags, in a vain attempt to substitute leadership, with simply buying the Presidency (again). And, all the while, obama hides what he's doing, by redirecting everyone's attention, with useless trips to south east asia, blaming Bush for the millionth time, and fueling the occupiers movement. And, believe it or not, there are still a considerable number of blindly devoted obama stooges and lackeys, who continue to defend this charlatan. It's time to remove power from this scoundrel, and find a competent, ethical, replacement for the Presidency.

      • jean2009

        @Howard I wasn't cackling about his wife having cancer. I was cackling about your thinking Neuter Gingrinch might be presidential material. I would suggest reading "Newt Gingrich is Not as Smart as Newt Gingrich Thinks Newt Gingrich Is." by Jeff Dweck

        The fact that his wife divorced him was due to his cheating on her. Isn't she the teacher he married at age 19 to avoid the Viet Nam War draft? Didn't he state:"She isn't young enough or pretty enough to be the President's wife." Didn't she take him to court because he was a dead-beat dad? Didn't he bounce 22 checks during the House Banking Scandal?
        Try: "Newt Gingrich's Skeleton Closet"

      You talk about voting for a leader who has the experience, intellect, and judgment to get America back on track. And then you put forward Newt Gingrich for that role. You must be very young and impressionable, and not remember his ignominious so-called leadership as Speaker of the House, at which time he is best remembered for such things as shutting down the government and leading the impeachment against Clinton while he himself was carrying on a hot adulterous affair. Newt Gingrich’s head swells more with each debate as he rewrites his past and the country’s. It is the height of gall that someone with his sleazy and smarmy ways should be running for an even higher office considering he already disgraced his Congressional position. I do not look upon Newt Gingrich as an intellectual; believe me, his degrees do not make him so. Newt’s latest “intellectual” ideas including bring back child labor. I believe he impresses only the ignorant.

      It is no accident that a disproportionate number of the very educated support Barack Obama, who is much intelligent, certainly has better judgment and has accomplished so much more than the Republicans would ever give him credit for. Check nonpartisan websites and you may learn something about the differences between these two. This country has been fortunate to have Obama as president, and I hope we will have him for another term.

        Oh yeah Barbara ... I forgot about all obama's accomplishments, you keep alluding to ... now, let's see ... obama sleazed his way into the state senate, by demanding that minorities have the right to vote ... only to rob them of that right, by disqualifying his black female opponent, on a technicality. Then, after writing two books about himself, he hung out with scumballs, like Bill Ayers, and spent TWENTY YEARS in an anti-American, racist church, which gave biggot, Louis Farrakhan, a lifetime achievement award. Then, he made it to the U.S. senate, where he voted present 127 times. Then, he bought his way into the White House, where he polarized America, destroyed our economy, crippled domestic energy production, disrespected our allies, forced through the unconstitutional, pork laden, 'pass it to see what's in it', TRILLION dollar obamacare monstrosity, and, he also went back on his promise of transparency, Barbara, you're right ... obama should get all the credit for all of his policies and blunders ... but, why should obama take responsibility for any of his actions, when he can simply blame everything on his predecessor, from three years ago ... especially when he has a biased mainsteam media, and blindly devoted stooges and lackeys, like you, to defend him, whether he's right or wrong.

        OK.

        You guys are right.

        No Snow,,, How about the trees in the background!
        Do they have SNOW?
        Or is that ICE, or FROST?

        Imagine you were standing at the Site of the NATIONAL CHRISTMAS TREE in Wash, DC,,,

        WHAT WOULD YOU SEE IN THE DISTANCE?

        Snow on Trees?
        A little Frost on the CHRISTMAS TREE in the Wagon?

        Or would you see something like:

        http://www.visitingdc.com/map/white-house-map.htm

        where there are No Hills or Dales or Rolling Landscape with Snow, Ice, or Frost
        with WOMEN IN Light Sweaters, Ballet Shoes, and Bare Arms????

    "The 'Machine politicians' have shown their colors... I feel sorry for the country however as it shows the power of partisan politicians who think of nothing higher than their own interest, and I feel for your future. We cannot stand so corrupt a government for any great length of time".

    From the dying hand of Theodore Roosevelt, Sr. to his son over 130 years ago. Not much has changed it seems.

    November 25, 2011 at 2:49 pm |
    • Peg - Az

      Yes, his son, Teddy, went on to become one of our most liberal presidents, a trust buster, pro-union, pro-labor, started the national parks. He once said, "We are not building this country of ours for a day." "It is to last through the ages." He was a great environmentalist. So, I'm really not sure I really understand the point you are making at all. You provided no context for your point.

      November 26, 2011 at 6:12 pm |
    • Peg - Az

      So, are you simply pointing out the problems of our partizan politics? I'm not sure what inspired your thoughts. My first impression was that you were continuing on with the tirades above against our president, perhaps you are simply stating the sad state of affairs in Washington at the moment.

      November 26, 2011 at 6:18 pm |
  5. Anglo-American Patriot

    Howard, I would just like to point out your historical mistake about President Obama polarizing the country more than any other President. I would just like to inform/remind you that that distinction goes instead to one of this countries greatest leaders, Abraham Lincoln. His election caused half the country to leave the union. Our current President has yet to come even close to that.

    Obama 2012!

    November 25, 2011 at 3:51 pm |
    • Peg - Az

      Honestly, I think a significant portion of the polarizing is not even coming from Washington. It is being written and paid for by big "interests" and being spread by certain sectors of the media that are "for hire" and who are spreading these myths that divide us and that support the agenda of those who are causing this. The politicians are actually, in large part, reacting to the privately generated hysteria coming from their constituents that has actually been manufactured and perpetuated on platforms like opinion shows and talk-radio. Who is really running the show? Who is really polarizing us? Think about it.

      November 26, 2011 at 6:27 pm |
    • Peg - Az

      Honestly, I do not think that most of the polarization is originating in Washington, although it is certainly ending up there and causing a stalemate. It is originating in the media, particularly through the exaggerations and misinformation in talk-radio entertainment shows. The hysteria and passion these shows generate in the public causes the politicians to "react" to a over polarized constituent base. In addition, some politicians are capitalizing on the hysteria and myths that are being generated in the media.

      obama wrote two self-serving books about himself, even though he had accomplished nothing ... he got the Nobel Prize, even though he had accomplished nothing ... he has the entire mainstream media, and an army of lackeys and stooges defending all of his blunders ... he even boasts of a Billion dollar reelection fund ... and, yet even with all of this, he still can't avoid the consequences of all his blunders and failed policies ... which is why he is dropping in the polls. America is finally waking up to what an inept, incompetent, loser obama actually is. America will experience a dramatic recovery, once this fool is out of the White House.

    The White House Christmas tree is donated by the National Christmas Tree Association. The WH gets it free of charge. In 1982, when the national unemployment rate was 10.8 %, the Reagans featured a Fraser Fir. In 1983, when unemployment finally came down to the mid-8% range (from the 10% it had been most of that year), the Reagans had a Noble Fir as the WH Christmas tree.

    It's almost certain that news outlets will feature the arrival of the national tree each year, just as the news outlets show the traditional "pardoning of the turkey" at Thanksgiving; the First Lady accepts the tree per tradition.

    I have read all your comments about President Obama failing America. He has done well considering who we have in Congress. Before he took office, the republicans had made up their minds that they was not going to cooperate with him no matter what the cost. If you think they care about you, keep thinking and waiting!! President Obama don't subject himself to the race issue, only other people do that. He walks and rises above that daily, just like all other hateful, disrespectful comments that have been said about him. I might not like that person ways but I am not disrespectful because I was taught from home not to be like that. His policies are not in full effect yet, we are still going by the last president policies that is still affecting us. I have seen and heard a lot of Christians say and do lot of things they shouldn't do because they don't like President Obama. I suggest they go back and pick up the BIBLE AND REREAD IT AGAIN on how you are to treat people and love people. GOD is about love not color.

        What on Earth are you talking about. Most adults could name several dozen narcotics, yet have never used them. Also, you really need to take a moment and check your grammar, it's truly dreadful. And everyone, please try to remember that this news article is about the current administration continuing on a long and proud tradition, nothing more than a profile peace that has attracted way to much attention. I think we all need to calm down and remember what this time of year is about. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, or any of the other religious end of year celebrations, or am an atheist like me and just enjoy the spirit of togetherness, we should embrace it and put aside our political differences.

    Howard,

    Your bitterness is a wake-up call in terms of how far America has yet to come...Obama, like any person, especially in politics, is no saint, but you speak of this man as if you have some sort divine insights into his motives towards humanity; you may not agree with his politics, but he has hardly come close to destroying America or for that matter causing the financial melt down that you describe; and what has Oprah ever done to you? She has reached out to help a lot of people in this global community. Both of these individuals studied in school, worked hard, and became two very successfull individuals. The receipe they followed for success is no different than ALL the people that they have succeeded in their prospective careers; televsion and politics. The only difference is that they are the first blacks to succeed at this level, and in Oprah's case female.

    You harp on these individuals because they belong to a particular church in which the preacher is anti-white. Prehaps you should analyze the history (recent & not so recent) of this country; it has not been kind to minorities, whether we are talking about churches, schools, or country clubs...Let's be fair about the point you are trying to make. Some of your greatest white Americans were hardly welcoming when it came to minorities; they were slave owners, staunch segregationists and out right biggots, so if it is hurt or distrust you are feeling towards the Obamas or Oprah, they along with most blacks in this country know how you feel...Get your mirror out and have an honest discussion with your god, whomever he/she is.

    Obama 2012!

    He is doing the best job he can, considering the fact that the problems we are facing in this country and world over are insolvable by any man. I might add that they didn't begin within the past three years; they have been a long time coming, and there is plenty of blame to go around.

    The tree came from Schroeder’s Forevergreens in Wisconsin, a member of the National Christmas Tree Association, and one of the Christmas tree farms that donates free trees to military families as part of the Trees for Troops program. I must have been watching a history show about the White House trees when it comes to the one in the front of the farmhouse, unless that is also part of this same story. I just get so worked up about all of the mean-spiritedness out there that was expressed in some of the comments above. I find it alarming. As you can tell by the state I live in, that we have certainly had our share of it here. I'm really tired of it.

    Enjoy you're last Christmas in the WH. Next year you'll be packing boxes and wondering where your 4 wasted years went....and your only legacy is 9.5% unemployement, healthcare plan no one wants, collapsed 401ks and an exploding deficit. Nice job ob!!

    Wow cnn actually called it a christmas tree instead of calling it a holiday tree.i guess they figured out they took the political correctness to far.i mean for real do u have a hannakuh tree or a ramadan tree or even a sinco da mayo tree.maybe one day they will realize this is america and we celebrate christmas and marriage is between a man and a woman and socialism is evil that capitalism made america great.

    It's amazing how the First Lady's attitude has improved about being an American once her husband got elected. You see. Give her an unlimited expense account and a jet airplane and now she's not embarrassed to admit she's an American.

    This is "1600 Brief" folks, just reporting on what's going on there. Gee-ma-eez! These anonymous comment boards are one of the things wrong with America!

    What a joke. They hate Christmas. They hate Christians and Jews. Stop pretending. Any couple who could take their children to that hate-spewing Rev. Wright church for all of those years, is no Christian.

        God bless you, I will not and I repeat I will not allow for hate to enter into my heart. One of the greatest treasures as Americans, we have is the ability to forgive, this is an humbling outcome for us as a nation, this is why no other country can say with favor we have every nationality flocking here, why? can any other country have such a diverse mixture of folks? I am proud of being an American, I can relate to what the First family has experienced before being elected by the people for the people. We elect our leaders based on the vote, give this First family the respect and favor that past presidents have been afforded, then based on our beautiful way of doing business we vote. LOVE people and move on have an awesome holiday and God Bless America and its people throughout the world.

    This is a time to celebrate the coming of the Christ, a joyful time to remind us what Christ did for us and man kind, now if one does not believe or is of a different faith that is ok, but since we have the First family of this Great nation believing and practicing what our tradition has always been, why not be positive and uplifting of mankind instead of spewing hatred and negative thoughts. The old statement is YOU ARE WHAT YOU SAY AND DO!!

    God please continue to bless America and show us how to LOVE OURSELVES AND OTHERS.

    no keds race has nothing to do with it.everything i said can be found in the history book.king is turning over in his grave right now cuz when the race card is pulled these days its just a feel sorry for me tactic.ur president is a socialist.so where the nazis.that is the definition of nazi-national socialist workers party.nazis where white.ur great black hope is a nazi race has nothing to do with it but his idealology has everything to do with it and the best u can do is pull the race card.

    no keds racism has nothing to do with it but ideaology has everything to do with it.obama is a socialist.there is very little difference between socialism and communism.both are the enemy of democracy and have done nothing but fail.its all in the history books and happening again in ur face cuz instead of learning history u want to bury ur head in the sand and pull the race card.mlk must be turning over in his grave.he gave his life for ur freedom and instead of realizing we to are fighting for ur freedom u label us racist.for example todays tea party wants the same thing the original tea party wanted less government intrusion stop wasteful government spending stop ridiculous taxes.u demonize them and label them violent racist antiamerican extremist while u support an occupy crowd that had to be dispersed by riot police cuz instead of realizing that they themselves failed they say capitalism failed and demand everything be given to them.when thomas jeffes

    Thomas jefferson said freedom will stop when those who dont work outweigh those that do work.that was his warning that socialism and a welfare mentality will destroy capitalism and in turn democracy.without either u will have no freedom.occupy that with ur bogus race card.

      What does Mao, Clinton, Barney Franks of Mass,, Che of Cuba, Babs Boxer from California, Stalin, Maxine Waters from Californi, Billy-Boy Nelson from FL, Lenin, Snowe from Up North, Chaves, Obama from Kenya (the Father), Putin, Webb from Virginia, Adolph, and Mussolini say about

      Socialism and Facsism are the steps between Liberty and Communism?

      Let face it, we are a great country, slavery is gone, all people (Americans), and I say most, want is for an honest job, with fair wages, for an honest day's work! This article is about Christmas and our beloved First Family, not about the political mess than can wait or be put in another blog. Right now, at this moment can we simply enjoy the birth of Christ and recongition of doing so by the display at the White House. God continue to bless America and its people throughout the world to make good choices for the good of mankind.
