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.

The only common bond between B.O. and “O” is their racist behaviour!
Yep, this take was merely about putting JFK and the messiah in one paragraph.
Like how suddenly Hussein is just like King FDR or Reagan.
Isn’t it great to see political brown-nosers tossed aside?
was larry sinclair mentioned in that paragraph next to jfitz?
Let’s face it....Oprah was her mentor otherwise Michelle would still look like that picture of her sitting at a table with a pensive Obama in his Mao jacket and her in her orangie shirt.
Michelle makes it clear to her inner circle, and this certainly includes Valerie, that she wants women around Barack watched and wants info about who he has an eye for and gets touchy with, this person continued. The thing is, she knows, like everybody, about JFKs shenanigans, and she thinks, hey, JFK was young and good looking like my guy.
Look MO, your dude is a homo. You have nothing to worry about, in regards to dalliances with women.
Your real problem is with him dicking around, if at this point in your life it even matters.
Obama...good looking? I don’t get that.
Denzil Washington is a good looking black man - and there are others...but Obama?
That, plus Oprah's fabulous ideas on interior design...
“As far as Michelle was concerned, Oprahs billions and her elite lifestyle disqualified her as an adviser to Barack, who had no truck with wealthy people, except as a source of campaign contributions, and was a redistributionist at heart.”
I wonder if Oprah understands that now?
Oprah worked for her fortune and Obama was/is/ ever shall be a Political Pimp.
What? Was there only one “Wide Load” sign and acompanying lead and chase cars available when they last met?
Denzil Washington is a good looking black man - and there are others...but Obama?"
I agree. Liberal women seem to have low standards when it comes to men. They thought Clinton was sexy. I guess Obama is, too.....if you happen to want a bony, effeminate guy with a peanut-shaped head, pencil neck, and flapping ears.
Leftists are consumed by envy. It is their defining characteristic, although usually well hidden. Their only happiness comes from fleeting moments of schadenfreude.
We can all thank Oprah for where we are now. She was the one that gave Obama’s 2008 primary campaign a spark of life when Hillary was cruising to the nomination.
Boycott Oprah!!!!!!!!!! I’m always pleased to hear news about her network failing miserably. Couldn’t happen to a nicer “lady”.
It confirms to me who really runs the WH, Valarie Jarrett and David Axelrod.
You prefer 8 years of Hitlary over 4 years of incompetence? I'll take an incompetent evil socialist vs. a ruthless competent one.
