Barack and Michelle Obama Fall Backwards Into Prestigious Award, Get Coveted Oscar Nomination For First Film


Barack and Michelle Obama sure have good luck. Their luck is so good it almost defies belief, as if there are powerful patrons behind the scenes greasing the wheels for the Obama’s.

It is not just now either, most do not know the incredible role luck (and some powerful benefactors) played in Obama’s unlikely rise.

Obama was a nobody community organizer with a fancy degree and some wealthy friends. Michelle got a no-show job through these friends as Barack embarked on a political career.


Barack, of course, had the equivalent of a no-show job and was some kind of professor at the University of Chicago as he made his move.

But he lost his first race in a landslide and then pulled out a victory for a State Senate seat. It was a minor office with little power and he did as little as possible with his eyes set higher.

No controversial votes to mar his reputation, a habit he carried with him to the US Senate.

When he ran for the Senate no one thought any Dem had a chance against a very popular GOP opponent.

No big names from the Dem party even dared enter the race so Obama, figuring he could get the nomination and get crushed in the general but raise his statute, went all in.

Right before the election, the GOP candidate goes down in a vicious divorce scandal and Obama shockingly won and moved to DC.

Where he made one good speech before he was anointed the promised one and he did little else.

When he ran for POTUS, again he figured he could raise his stature while losing to Hillary but when the economy bottomed out no establishment politician could win and there were only two left – Hillary and McCain. So he stunned the world and won the presidency.

Then he got a Nobel peace prize for doing nothing and now he just got an Oscar nomination for his first movie.

Obama gloated over his incredible luck:

“Glad to see American Factory’s Oscar nod for Best Documentary. It’s the kind of story we don’t see often enough and it’s exactly what Michelle and I hope to achieve with Higher Ground. Congrats to the incredible filmmakers and entire team!

A good story gives you the chance to better understand someone else’s life. It can help you find common ground. And it’s why Michelle and I were drawn to Higher Ground’s first film, American Factory. Take a look at our conversation with the directors, and check it out on Netflix.”
