Do you remember when Oprah Winfrey endorsed President Obama in the run-up to the 2008 Presidential election? The country went wild. If Oprah was behind him, he had to be the one!
Like many Americans, Oprah was ready to put her reputation and wealth behind Barack Obama, expecting that his message of hope and change would finally put America on the road to liberty, equality and prosperity. She was so emphatic and emotional about the possibility of him being the leader of the free world that she reportedly cried her eye lashes off at the Democratic National Convention. She wasn’t the only one. People all over the country were fainting in his very presence (and apparently still are).
But like much of the country, Oprah isn’t singing Obama’s praises any more.
It seems she has realized what opponents of the President’s policies have known all along.
Barack Obama isn’t just more of the same, he’s much, much worse.
