    The President asked Oprah to help him promote Obamacare 'but she refused because she feels burned by the White House'

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ite-House.html

    Oprah Winfrey has been notably distancing herself from President Obama and First Lady Michelle and apparently her latest slight came against Obamacare.

    The media icon was asked to attend a meeting at the White House along with other celebrities to see how they could help create some positive publicity for the Affordable Care Act.

    Rather than jumping on board like Alicia Keys and Jennifer Hudson, Oprah reportedly quickly said that she would not be attending the meeting.

    'All of Oprah’s top people thought she would go, because when the president invites you to the White House, most people automatically say yes, but Oprah said she didn’t have the time or inclination to go. It wasn’t like she had to think it over. It was an immediate, flat-out, unequivocal no,' an Oprah advisor told journalist Ed Klein...

    ....According to Klein, the slight is just the talk show host's latest way of getting back at the Obama administration for failing to live up to the alleged promises that they agreed to when Winfrey campaigned for Obama in 2008....

    Oprah's relationship with the Obamas has been on the decline for a few years. This is not surprising.

    With that being said, if a black President loses Oprah times are really bad for the President.

    She's not a good person to throw under the bus. He's so arrogant I guess he didn't figure out that his use them then lose them policy isn't wise with Oprah.

    Hey Barry, you reap what you sow.

    You've alienated much of Congress (well, the parts that haven't had their noses buried up your ass all this time); you've pissed off your überliberal base (Gitmo and the rest of the entitlement crowd), and now you've got Oprah mad at you because you dissed her by not returning her phone calls.

    Even LBJ knew enough to keep the phone lines burning, but your arrogance and personal demeanor being to the narcissistic side of narcissism won't even let you do that. Unless, of course, you're trying to line up a caddy at the Andrews golf course or playing kissy-face with Reggie Love -- then you're all about the phone aintcha?

    Even though you got special dispensation to run your Blackberry without the tracking and the login stuff that goes with the territory of being President, you just can't be bothered to pick that thing up and talk with people.

    You'd rather talk to a golf ball.

    Barry, you're a loser. Complete and total. Now, Oprah ain't nothing to write home to Mom about either, but at least she knows what side of the bread is buttered.

    Your side landed butter side down, asswipe.

    Next stop for Oprah, detailed IRS audit and SEC investigation of any of her publicly-traded operations.

    Good possibility, but perhaps the next stop for Obama would be having her turning off all her viewers from backing his guys and his programs. I doubt if he can chance it. She might become more active than simply ignoring him.
