Ben Affleck's Oscar Speech

Can He Recover

... At Home??

022513_ben_affleck_oscars_v2_launchBen Affleck could probably use a ladder to get out of that hole he dug himself into at the Oscars last night when he called out the imperfections in his marriage to Jennifer Garner during his "Argo" victory speech. 

You could hear the nervous laughter from the crowd when Affleck -- who was racing through his speech -- said, "I want to thank my wife ... for working on our marriage for 10 Christmases."

He continued, "It's good ... it IS work, but it's the best kind of work ... and there's no one I'd rather work with."

We respect his honesty ... and Garner was smiling when the camera cut to her ... but how do you think the comment went over at home, behind closed doors?

We gotta ask ...

Talking about his marriage wasn't the problem with his speech. The problem was that he never set the record straight about the true story of Argo. It was overwhelmingly a Canadian mission but Ben Affleck twisted the truth in this movie. Ask former U.S. President Jimmy Carter who said, "90 per cent of the contributions to the ideas and the consummation of the plan was Canadian.” and yet the movie portrays the Canadians as mere bistanders. All Ben Affleck has to say is "thanks Canada". That's what the problem with his speech was!
