Did Oprah fall out with the Obamas?
The queen of talk who spent the last
inauguration partying with the First
Couple jetted out of the country this
time around and didn´t even tweet a

Among the dozens of A-list celebrities attending President Obama´s second inauguration, one famous face was notably absent. Oprah, the queen of media who was once considered Obama´s staunchest celebrity supporter, skipped the inaugural festivities this year and instead jetted out of the country for a couple speaking engagements. Her absence was glaring after the role she played in Obama´s 2008 campaign and his inauguration in 2009. Oprah´s backing of Obama in 2008 was her first ever political endorsement. She joined Obama on the campaign trail from Iowa to South Carolina to New Hampshire,

Comments:
The Mooch has spoken. Oprah is not allowed near her husband. Winfrey will never acknowledge that her ratings decline started to slide downward after she openly displayed her adoration for 0bama.

I think dear Opa realized that she´d better steer clear of any association with the Historical Firsts while she tries to resuscitate her falling empires. Like the ObaHustlers she puts herself first.

How much of Oprah´s diminished popularity can be directly attributed to her entanglement with the Obamas? Married women, who probably formed a large part of her audience, went overwhelmingly for Romney. She burned bridges with her audience and now POTUS and FLOTUS have no more use for her. She was a useful idiot, but now she´s not even useful anymore.

Oprah was too close to the president . . . Oprah was acting like she was the first lady . . . Oprah didn’t know her place . . . Oprah was a bad influence . . . Valerie advised Michelle to “distance herself” from Oprah and cut her out of the White House. Michele also turned her nose up at Oprah because she was fat.

Michelle is very jealous, I would say unusually so. Most people after years of marriage have trust and don´t follow their husbands around and check on them. Michelle doesn´t seem to trust Barack at all. She insists on knowing his every movement and drops in on him at all kinds of odd times. It´s been the buzz of the White House. Oprah has gossiped about it and giggled about how obsessive Michelle is.

The real problem is that Michelle and Valerie are two of the Obama day to day handlers and "Okra" was inserting herself into the mix without proper authority. Also, Oprah can´t be trusted to keep all of the dirty little secrets of the regime. She may decide to do a show on Obama secrets, that we may be interested in, to boost her ratings. Don´t kid yourself they laid the law down on her and she got out of the way.

Oprah will find out that she too is included in the "rich" and be taxed beyond her imagination! She was just "used" and now she is not "needed" anymore.

This is what happens when God is ignored and His Word is denied, as well as His Way that leads to true Righteousness (God with US)!

Count me among those who think Oprah is taking care of Oprah this time around.

She used to be the one known as "O". But, helping launch that other "O" hurt her "O"prah brand and lifted "O"bama´s.

She is back to dancing with what brung her to the dance.

If you were Oprah and your ´friend´, the president, was demeaning the wealthy as selfish pigs, wouldn´t you be angry. She should be angry, most especially, because she has been very generous with her money and kept a lot of people employed until she came out in support of him for president in the first election. This is the gratitude that she gets. There is no gratitutude with a left winger; thank you maam, I don´t need you any more, I won.

Without the third O, Zippy wouldn´t have been elected. She had him on her show long before he was elected.

Four years ago they said the Wookie didn´t like Oooprah because she was fat, but liked her friend Gayle. Look who is one GMA now.

Then there was his b´day party in Chicago with Oooprah and the Wookie didn´t attend.

Maybe Oooprah will use the orphanage in Africa as her residence to avoid taxes.

Well, this is one way to handle corruption and government abuse: Make it the official thing to do. A group of Democratic senators urged the Obama administration on Thursday to cap the amount of political activity that tax-exempt 501(c)(4) groups can engage in at 5 to 15 percent. The 15 senators, in public comments on a proposed regulation change that grew out of the IRS targeting controversy, said that the rules need to ensure that 501(c)(4)s can’t use their tax-exempt status to go around campaign finance rules. “You will undoubtedly receive complaints from certain corners that these proposed rules will

White House records reveal the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has completed its review of the DOJ rule, one of 23 executive actions ordered by President Obama more than a year ago in response to the 2012 shooting massacre in Newtown, Conn. The exact timing of the planned action was not clear Friday afternoon. The final rule sets out three changes to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), created 20 years ago in an effort to keep guns out of the wrong hands. The updated regulations will grant tribal police access to NICS and authorize law enforcement agencies to use

The backlash to the study grew after a Republican on the FCC, Ajit Pai, published an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal warning that the agency "plans to send researchers to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which stories to run."

Newly released documents from the Clinton Presidential Library reveal that Hillary Clinton and her aides have been struggling to manage her media image since the early days of her husband’s administration. The problem is one that´s dogged her throughout her career, hobbled her 2008 presidential bid and could continue to be an issue in a potential 2016 White House campaign.

Obama, rallying the party faithful ahead of November´s crucial midterm elections, urged Democrats to make Republicans go “0 for 3.” “The top Republican in the Senate said his top priority wasn´t to create jobs or expand opportunity, but to beat me,” said Obama. “So let´s look at the scorecard.

It’s well known that Bush and Putin got on well at first. But when the relationship soured, Bush became exasperated by his talks with the Russian bully. Putin seemed to delight in debating Bush.

President Barack Obama is warning Russia "there will be costs" for any military maneuvers it launches in Ukraine, a move U.S. and Ukrainian officials say they believe to be already underway. Officials say Obama may retaliate by canceling a trip to Russia this summer for an international summit and could also cut off trade discussions with Moscow. But it´s unclear whether those moves will have any impact on Russia´s calculus in Ukraine, which is at the center of what many see as a tug of war between East and West.

President Barack Obama fired a few verbs across the front armor of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s tanks, in a rushed statement just after 5 p.m. on Friday. The statement was made as Russian forces — including attack helicopters — appeared in peripheral parts of the Ukraine that are largely populated by ethnic Russians. There’s no evidence that Obama wants to get involved in what may become a war between the Ukraine and Russia. He did not threaten any significant retaliation if Russian force attack nor did he offer military aid to the Ukraine. He announced that Vice President Joe Biden — but not

Ukraine´s security council ordered the general staff to immediately put all armed forces on highest alert, the council´s secretary Andriy Parubiy announced. The Defense Ministry was ordered to conduct the call-up, potentially of all men up to 40 in a country that still has universal male conscription.

President Obama´s proclaimed strategy to "bypass Congress" — most conspicuously his broad rewriting of the Affordable Care Act — has given unusual prominence to a fairly arcane legal doctrine: standing. Standing is what is preventing a potential blizzard of litigation against the president´s unilateral decrees, and ironically, it´s a doctrine liberal jurists have long decried. To challenge the government in federal court, it isn´t enough to simply believe that the government´s conduct is illegal or even unconstitutional. Federal courts can hear only specific disputes about the law as applied to particular people. To be heard in court, a person must have

President Obama spoke for 90 minutes with Russian President Vladimir Putin as the United States, its top European partners and the U.N. Security Council spent the day trying to fashion a response to the rapid escalation of the Ukraine crisis after Russian troops took up positions throughout the autonomous republic of Crimea. Obama expressed “deep concern,” the White House said, and called on Russia to withdraw its forces back to its bases in Crimea and “to refrain from any interference elsewhere in Ukraine.” Putin appeared to have given little ground, according to a readout of the conversation from his office.
