Oprah: We All Need to Respect Obama or Something

Maybe when the day comes that he gives me a reason to respect him. Until then, perhaps he should start respecting the American people.
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.”
Sorry, but the I'd much rather have a president who isn't on a learning curve.

This is the USA, we're talking about, not some algebra test. Good God that woman is proof that money does not equal brains.

Respect? When you have an economy in shambles, his own party is in tatters thanks to him, the US image is severely damaged worldwide and even the president of Egypt tells him to go to hell.
Um, no. This president is a manchild just like Rush Limbaugh says. No respect will be given because none has been earned.

Oprah's having a hissy fit because she's used to everything she touches turning to gold.  She's got her hackles up because her TV network and Obama are both abject failures.  Even Oprah has to experience a reality check every once in a while.  Why women revere her so much is a mystery to me.

Funny, but I don't remember Oprah making a similar statement when Bush was being eviscerated on a regular basis.  And didn't Obama promise he was prepared to hit the ground running? Gee, I wonder why her ratings keep falling?

With her reasoning, if we had a tyrant for a leader we should respect him.  Sorry, doesn't work that way.  Respect has to be earned and he hasn't.

Oprah and Colin Powell supported Obama because he is black. Nothing more, nothing less. Stop lying about it.

America should respect Oprah and Odrama Queen at least as much as they respect America and the USA Constitution!

We should give back 1,000-fold exponentially multiplied into their bosom what they have given to us.

Like that would be just great!

Anybody who doesn't like what he's done should try it??

I don't want to try it.  He interviewed for the job, said he could do it and he got the job. Now quit making excuses for the lying, incompetent fraud.

You don't become president on a dare, you simple twit

Go away Oprah.  You are partially responsible foe hoisting this fool on the public.  Has the little Bamikins been crying on your shoulder?  Just go away.

Orca, Michelle, and Omamma - Respect is a two way street. Start respecting my right to make decisions on the amount of salt and the food choices of my children before you ask me to respect this so-called President. Besides being a liar he's quite possibly not even Constitutionally qualified to be President.

Until then, Orca Winbag can kiss my disrespectful ass!

rich b said...

"Partially" responsible? I posed and posted this very same question more than once on several different conservative boards how many nitwit women and men voted for Omama just because the racist Orca Winbag endorsed this unqualified fool for president.

And considering the demographics and the ninety-five percent of African Americans who voted for Omama just because of his skin color, who are the real racists in America? Obama is not qualified to run a lemonade stand much less the USA.

Thanks a lot to the libs and progressives of America for foisting this POS on us. Now what?

WTF?!  </span>
Amen, Uncle Dan.
The presidency is one job that should be "shovel ready".
The world is an unfriendly place for the unprepared.

When the term "shovel ready" (which Omama recently admitted was fraudlent) is mentioned I think of the graphic below. I would give credit to the artist but I can't remember the site name from which I stole the graphic.
