What does this say about Obama's most popular and vocal supporter?! Is this her way of admitting she was wrong, has serious doubts about his abilities, and/or "buyer's remorse," while attempting to preserve her reputation--which in her case translates to ratings and profits?!
"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."
So, two-years into his term, with the national deficit and unemployment numbers at record highs, and no steady/stable downward trends in sight, those of us who were RIGHT ALL ALONG, and KNEW Obama was NOT experienced enough to lead this country, are being asked to show him RESPECT, when they NEVER showed GW Bush an ounce of respect from DAY ONE, because they desperately wanted Al Gore to win, and STILL think Bush somehow stole the election!
How does crippling this country and the American people--who are losing their homes, cannot find gainful employment, are having trouble feeding their children, lend itself to giving the persons (Obama Administration and Congress) RESPONSIBLE for NOT addressing these issues CORRECTLY, somehow lend itself to giving RESPECT!?!??
And since when did we start electing presidents PRIMARILY because one perceives them "having a good heart?!" Ugh!
Side Note: Oprah's "OWN" network, is a ratings FAILURE! I wonder if THIS is why she is trying to save face regarding her steadfast endorsement of Obama?!
In its fifth full week of programming (1/31-2/6), OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network was down 17% vs. last week with last week among women 25-54 in total day (40,000 vs. 48,000), and down 34% among women 25-54 in primetime (54,000 vs. 82,000).
OWN is now well below last year’s women 25-54 averages for Discovery Health . OWN replaced Discovery Health which averaged 51,000 W25-54 Total Day, and 84,000 W25-54 in Prime Time during 2010.
Your thoughts?! :o)
