Oprah wants 'respect' for Obama
Politico ^ | February 11, 2011 | MJ Lee

Posted on 02/11/2011 5:59:45 AM PST by John W

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.”

She said the presidency is a position that “holds a sense of authority and governance over us all,” and that “even if you’re not in support of his policies, there has to be some level of respect.”

First, why would O be on a poorly rated show like Morning Joe, even if it is broadcast from Chicago? Second, if she still believes in O’s “integrity” she’s delusional. Third, when she says everyone should try it...what’s “IT”? Being president? Blindly following the ‘bammer? What?

Oprah, I hate to tell you this, but the man wanted this job enough to campaign for it and lie like a troll.

The Presidency is not a job where you can enjoy “A learning curve”. You are expected to go into it with a experience and wisdom, not “good intentions”. We can’t afford it. Countries have been destroyed for any less.

And shame on the MSM that did not stress this man’s inexperience. And on a foolish public that voted in a man because he was a different color and fell for styrofoam columns and “coolness” instead of substance.

“I feel that everybody has a learning curve,”

I agree however when you are going for a job you feel you are qualified for and spend so much time and money seeking, you get 90-days like at any job for the “probie” period. Then you have to begin taking responsibility.

Oprah added, “I think everybody complaining ought to try it for once.

I am OK with this too. I’ll be there Thursday at 10:00 to be sworn into office. I’ll do it.

Oprah, when the man starts to show respect for our Constitution,the rule of law,and the wishes of the People, perhaps he might earn a little respect. As it stands right now, he does not deserve any.

Oprah, surely knows that respect is earned and not given “because it is due”.
Obama has done nothing to earn the respect of any American.
He has done much to earn the disrepect of many.
We need a leader, but we are stuck with Obama..

I think it is high time for all of us to contact our representatives in the House and call for the impeachment of Barak Hussein Obama. I did this morning and used a website that lists 38 reasons with footnotes to impeach this imposter. The list is at http://www.amorian.org/the-big-list/

I would love to see every member of the House get an e-mail filled with cogent reasons for Obama's removal.

Walter Williams documents this “phenomenon” in his excellent autobiography, “Up From The Projects”. When you expect less from people because of some “disadvantage”, you do more harm to them in the long run. What our diversity and affirmative action policies have done is give us someone who is utterly unprepared and unqualified to handle the job. Period.

When Zero stops trying to destroy my country and does something worthy of my respect, the office he is holding, and the country he respresents, only THEN will he has earned a modicum of respect. The reason is that respect EARNED, not given. Until that time, pound sand Ms. Winfrey.

I wonder what Winfrey would have to say if Obama went out and blew 1.9 trillion dollars on her credit cards and allowed illegal aliens to set up shop on her Montecito estate.

You think she’d be demanding respect for him at that point?

How much respect has the “Boy Genius” shown conservatives? When asked to see his birth certificate, he has shown arrogance. When asked to debate health care, he has shown condescension. His pat answer? “We won!”. Respect goes both ways.

Why should I/we respect someone who first and foremost doesn’t respect America and it’s citizens?

Why should I respect someone who doesn’t respect our constitution and the rule of law?

Why should I respect someone who respects our sworn enemies more than the citizens he’s sworn to protect?

Why should I respect someone who follows Karl Marx instead of Thomas Jefferson?

FU Oprah!

He’s called us bible-clinging teabaggers who are his enemies and need to sit at the back of the bus.

No president who respects his own office would have said such things.

Thanks for the laugh! This self-important POS sure has a lot of nerve telling us how to think and express ourselves. She and her kind never gave an ounce of respect for W. F off and die, Oprah.

Respect for the office is vastly different than respect for the man.

Perhaps Oprah might want to contemplate just how much respect Barry has for the office when he's seen so often with his feet on the furniture.
