The fact that the woman is rich and on television does not impress me, and I’ve always been unimpressed by the fact that she is from Mississippi (which she seldom admits to). Politico.com posts this story of Oprah saying that she wants more respect for Obama. Did she say the same for President Bush?
Oprah called on President Obama’s critics on Friday to “show some level of respect.”
“I feel that everybody has a learning curve, and I feel that the reason why I was willing to step out for him was because I believed in his integrity and I believed in his heart,” the influential TV host said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” in Chicago.
Of the negative mood of the country, Oprah added, “I think everybody complaining ought to try it for once.”
She said the presidency is a position that “holds a sense of authority and governance over us all,” and that “even if you’re not in support of his policies, there needs to be a certain level of respect.”
