In his new book, The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House, journalist Edward Klein reveals how even former friends and political allies of the president have become frustrated with his remoteness and bungling of crises. Klein, former editor of The New York Times Magazine and frequent contributor to Vanity Fair, interviewed numerous members of Obamas inner circle. In this excerpt, he explains how even celebrity backer Oprah Winfrey was shoved aside.
Shortly after the 2008 presidential election, Oprah Winfrey traveled to Washington, DC, to nail down an interview for O, The Oprah Magazine with Michelle Obama. Oprah expected the president-elect and his wife to give her a reception fit for visiting royalty, and for the occasion, she took along Gayle King, the magazines editor-at-large and her constant companion.
More than a year and a half had passed since Oprah announced that she was throwing her support behind Barack Obama in his primary race against Hillary Clinton. The endorsement had represented a calculated risk for the queen of daytime television. It was one thing for her to recommend a book or launch the career of Dr. Phil, but it was quite another for her to back a political candidate.
As it turned out, a sizable chunk of her audience took offense and stopped watching her show. No sooner had Oprah hit the campaign trail, appearing beside Obama at one primary rally after another, than her personal favorability ratings began to slide, falling from 74 to 66 percent. Her unfavorable ratings suffered an even worse fate; they jumped from 17 to 26 percent.

Behind every successful man is a woman, behind her is his wife.
Have said right along that Obama likes Oprah....A LOT....and that Michelle is a b****.
Only in this country could a fat lesbian with deformed goldfish eyes become a billionaire by just “talking” to people, if you can call looking at yourself in the monitor while other people complain about their problems “talking”.. And how does she pay back that country? By endorsing an avowed Marxist who has put millions out of work and will put millions more out if he is reelected. And she is ticked off because she has to talk to an underling? Hey you endorsed this slimebag Oafrah. How does it feel destroying your career for it? Getting stabbed in the back? It’s what he’s done to the entire country only a billion times worse.
Michelle’s facial expressions make any executioner’s facial expressions more jovial than Red Skelton.
Been saying.....Michelle does NOT want another term.
I ordered this on Kindle the minute I heard about it. It won’t be released till next week. Sounds like fun!
HA! This is so funny and I have no doubt that it’s true!
Unfortunately, not enough of your countrymen follow that advice.
Words fail me.
It's hard to believe Michelle would want to push Oprah aside. ;-)
This is nonsense. Barry has never been attracted to women, except for their influence and money. Certainly not sexually.
That about sums it up.
What a cast of clowns. Barack, Michelle, Valerie, Oprah. This country is in sorry shape. Narcissists to the core.
Hey Michelle.....There’s 50 copies of the NY Post on our doorstep. Guess the newsboy thought we needed the extra papers because of the dog...smirk, smirk...
We would have been better off with a carnival troop in charge!
"Hang on Barry...it's gonna be a bumpy ride to November."
So, had he listened to Moochie, he would be on TV, lecturing us, 7 days a week instead of his current six (or so it seems)?
sounds like a good read! happy Mothers Day to all!!
