Meet The New President: Oprah!

Credit:

Oprah believes that she helped get our new prez elected. Will she now be doing her show from the White House?

When Barack Obama made his acceptance speech in Chicago last week, the cameras kept flashing on Oprah leaning on and weeping all over some guy who is now a media star. Everything Oprah touches (I don't need to even mention her last name, that's how famous she is) turns into gold! The woman was glowing like a Chernobyl baby!

After supporting him early on and actually going on the road and campaigning for Obama, Oprah must now certainly believe that she's a president maker, in addition to being the highest paid woman on TV. Will the President-Elect now feel obligated to keep her involved? Will she be the new Secretary of the Interior, for instance?

The already self-absorbed Oprah must now think she can do no wrong. She gives needy people cars and money; she started a school in Africa and celebrities clamor to be guests on her show. Every public appearance she makes results in a mad mob scene. She's into publishing, the Web, radio and retailing. 

Oprah's show is a consistent hit and she's assembled a following equal to any entertainer on the planet. She recommends books and they hit the bestseller list. She touts other entertainers and they get their own shows. She drops a dozen eggs and an omelette suddenly appears. She breaks wind and it's an alternative fuel source.

What's next? Will Oprah run for president herself in 2012? Or will she put the people in place to run, say a ticket with Dr. Phil for Prez and Rachel Ray for VP? It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Obama's victory was a triumph for Oprah. And now it's time to give for Barack to give her her due!

The already self-absorbed Oprah must now think she can do no wrong.

Ed, whattaya mean, "now"???  She's had superhero status for far too long already, but yeah, I could see this really consolidating her Oprahness into kingmaker status.

I'm a longtime Oprah despiser, and my favorite O moment was seeing her get egg on her face with the controversy surrounding James Frey's fraudulent Oprah Book Club memoir, "A Million Little Pieces."  But to restore her image with her devoted audience, she properly ambushed him when he later appeared on her show.  And just like that, she's golden again.

Keep it coming, El G, keep it coming.  The Captain Kirk crack made me spit soda through my nose.  That is unconscionable of the FEC to go after McCain only, but to be expected...

Ya know, there's a reason I call her "Doprah Whine-free".  This woman is so full of herself that she named her magazine "O" to remind women that she is the goddess of all and that it is through her that women can finally have the Big "O".

Pardon me for a moment while I go wrench my guts out into the trash can...

I remember the James Frey incident and to this day that he managed to smear egg all over that chubby-faced twit is a highlight I will never forget.  It also showed her conceit when she dared bring him on her show and berate him in front of her "minions". 

I'm Oprah, how dare you make me look like a fool!

Sorry Doprah, it wasn't Frey who made you look like a fool.  You need absolutely no help whatsoever in that department.  I'm sure Doprah is already slated for a cabinet post in Obama's administration.  Although Department of Inferior ... er ... excuse me INTERIOR is a bit much.  I'm thinking she should be Secretary of Health and Human Resources.  I mean seriously, with her two doctor friends, she can't miss.  Plus, it gives her a chance to do what she does best -- berate everyone around her who doesn't do what she wants them to do.  This way she can berate all the white people she wants and no one can stop her.

For now, she needs to just get back on her leash and go back to doing whatever it was she was doing before the election started.  BTW, what was she doing before the election?

Ah, thanks Ed :) 

I've been known to buy an O magazine from time to time, as well as catch an episode or two (especially when she has Dr. Oz on the show). 

I also had the opportunity to attend her Post Oscar show when Reese Witherspoon won for Walk the Line (but unfortunately it was day 2 after one of my rounds with Chemo that didn't agree with me).  And I'll even admit that I loved her show the Big Give. 

But as for her political views and endorsements to me were pure opinions that didn't factor in for me on my election selections.  I really did what i could to avoid political opinions as much as possible and made my decisions based on voting records and party platforms.

And if Ms. O decides to run in 2012, I'll continue to follow the same political decision making process as I did this year.  

But if she did help Obama get elected with her campaign contributions, I wouldn't be a bit surprised since the woman does tend to be a bit of a marketing genius ;)

How is that for a little coffee talk for you?

Well from my opinion, it's because El G & DE are hatefully abusive to others and frankly I wouldn't have commented myself to willing subject myself to their propaganda's of anger and hatred, if you didn't specifically mention my name.  Regardless of my views where Oprah is concerned some of the people I know here on Broo would specifically BLOCK any and all subjects where EL G, DE, and others like them that use this public form to take out their aggressions on others. 

I don't have a problem with debating differing views and it's one thing to have strong opinions, it's completely another to willing subject myself to their hatefully emotional abuses.  If that defines those of us who choose to remain silent against their rage "typical" then I'm very proud to speak out for the typical.

I despise Oprah. Ever since she began getting the XX Large head she now possesses. The fact that she endorsed Nobama really heats me up. The fact that she DOES have such a large following, I believe ANYONE she had endoresed would have won. It makes me angry since he has so little experience, was a complete unknown, and is one the most left democrates ever created. He has little respect for the troops, can't admit that he knew full well that Pastor Wrong was a black racist, (Even OPRAH couldn't handle going to that church after a few months due to his racism!), and won't allow a single word about his precious wife but can dish it out with the best of them! He wants to take away money from families, "Rich" people, and the corporations who give us jobs and give it to the kind of people who can't be bothered to move out of New Orleans after three years! Don't believe he wants to take money away from families?? Go to his precious website that tells you what your tax break will be under Nobama. If you have more than a few kids, you will PAY MORE! Real family values guy! Oprah and he need to foul up the country and then disappear after four years so someone better can come clean up their mess.

Main Entry: 1hate  Pronunciation: \ˈhāt\ Function: noun Usage: often attributive Etymology: Middle English, from Old English hete; akin to Old High German haz hate, Greek kÄ“dos care Date: before 12th century 1 a: intense hostility and aversion usually deriving from fear, anger, or sense of injury b: extreme dislike or antipathy : loathing <had a great hate of hard work>2: an object of hatred <a generation whose finest hatehad been big business — F. L. Paxson> Here is the definition that I used and if you don't see yourself as "B" by definition of a hater, then I rest my case, your comment only validates my point. Which by I have addressed you in the past.  As for the complaints, don't worry they've been registered by me and others as well :) As for me, I think it's unfortunate that you have to try to degrade others to try to make a point (or somehow inflate your insatiable ego).  GOOD LUCK and TAKE CARE EL!

Hey Sharlene:

Thanks for throwing me under the bus.  I really love it when someone uses such eloquent language to disguise their calling me a "racist".

DE Carson doesn't support Obama because he's a completely unqualified amateur.  DE Carson doesn't like Oprah because she's a self-centered, egoist with delusions of sainthood.  DE Carson is sounding like Bob Dole...

I can honestly see where you might make the leap from unqualified amateur and self-centered, delusional egoist to racist.  Really, I can.  It's too bad that you can't actually dispute what I said so you have to resort to calling me a racist.  Thanks, I really appreciate that.  It's why I now have to spit every time I say the word "liberal".

I guess that by not subscribing to the pro-Obama/Doprah liberal (ptooi) agenda that makes me a racist.  Then so be it.  Just remember to call up the Oxford English Dictionary and let them know they need to add "anyone who opposes the American liberal agenda" to the racist entry 'cause it ain't there now!
