  • Oprah needs to get a life. I don't think she would have said that for any other president....or gone to the lengths she has gone for Obama. And yes, I believe it's because of RACE.
    He has as much authority over us as we give him.

  • I stopped paying any attention to Pope-rah about 18 years ago. For obvious reasons

  • Hmmmm, guess she never criticized a rep president then. After all, the same reasoning should be there.

  • Well I hate to tell "the queen", but the only "authority" over me is God. Everything else is of my choosing.

  • Oafrah wants Americans to be mindless minions. She's a hypocrite, she has been never actively supported a Republican president, but now we are supposed to blindly support Obama just because he's president?

  • Holds authority over us? Apparently she has forgotten that we are a Constitutional Republic. Any "authority" that he has is bound by the dictates of the Constitution. (Actually, I think he has forgotten that, too.) All elected government officials are public servants and serve at the will of the people. And, frankly, it's long past time that we the people tighten the reins on the government. We've given them too much latititude for far too many years.

  • Well she's free to worship whomever she wants I suppose. After all, we still have freedom of religion. I just wish she'd quit forcing her 'religion' down my throat!
