Jealous Michelle vs. Oprah: How two of America’s most powerful women grew to despise each other
NY Post ^ | 5/13/12 | EDWARD KLEIN

Posted on 05/13/2012 6:20:42 AM PDT by jimbo123

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 Obama’s 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 magazine’s editor-at-large and her constant companion.

The only common bond between B.O. and “O” is their racist behaviour!

Okay, I read the whole article and get a load of this:

“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 JFK’s shenanigans, and she thinks, hey, JFK was young and good looking like my guy.

Ummmm.... I call BS. She knows damn well who "her guy" has an eye for and it ain't the fairer sex.

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?

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.

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?

I ASKED a White House insider to explain Michelle’s animus toward Oprah. “Michelle is furious that her husband makes late-night calls to Oprah, seeking ideas on how to improve his sinking popularity,” the source told me.

That, plus Oprah's fabulous ideas on interior design...

“As far as Michelle was concerned, Oprah’s 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?

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.

Jealous Michelle

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”.

Good jucy story.

It confirms to me who really runs the WH, Valarie Jarrett and David Axelrod.

Holders people culture is very self-centered and very intolerant of anyone they perceive, rightly or wrongly, as trying to move in on em or their stash.

It is equally telling that lots of liberals have moved away from nobama, i.e. this book and how now “some” in the MSM are not quite so fast to hide the real from us. Looks like the kenyan and his gaggle’s ME, ME, ME have turned off some on the left or maybe they see the handwriting on the wall and want to do the “rats jumping the sinking ship” routine.

Unless nobama cooks up the Mother Of All October Surprises, the landslide is more and more likely to be in biblical proportions.

That IS a most telling photo. Moochele’s hatred is not just toward a beautiful and elegant woman, but toward Crackas in general. Do not think for a minute she would not pull a Zimbabwa on us.

I realized after I posted what I did that it may be taken as favor for Hilary in an objective sense. Sorry for the confusion. I don't "prefer" either, given the choice between both and the Republican party.

Let me make this clear: I absolutely would have preferred neither get even close to the White House.

However, I also truly believe that Hillary wouldn't have been as damaging to this country as Obama has been. She carried (and still carries) the baggage of her "Hillary Care" defeat in the 90's, so she never would've been able to ram such socialism down our collective throats. Also, I believe she learned the lesson of her husband in '94, and wouldn't have tried to be nearly as hard core leftist (as much as I'm sure she'd like to be) as Obama has been; she at least would have re-learned it in 2010, unlike Obama.

Of course, we can't go back in time to prove or disprove that assertion, and had Hillary been the nominee (and won) then I would have been railing against her as much as I do Obama (without even knowing who Obama was at that point).

So it's pointless to debate which would be worse; both are ultimately disgusting leftists, with little (if any) regard for the well-being of this country. IMO, Hillary is at least self-centered enough to be willing to bend to the will of the people when political reality dictates (then and only then; not because she cares about the country, but only because she cares about her own political future).

Obama isn't even that. He's such an ideologue, that he absolutely refused to hold back, even after 2010!

If you disagree with that assertion above, fine, but then I could reverse your post around to you, to say: "You peter Obama over Hitlery?" The point is, such disagreement is based on a hypothetical, thus pointless to debate.

What what isn't hypothetical is that Obama got his start BECAUSE of Oprah. I absolutely blame her as much as anyone for his rise (and thus directly, other than of course Obama himself, for the blame of all that has befallen this country).

This is the point of my post(s) on this thread: Anyone who supports Oprah in any way, by watching her show, or her network, or buying her magazine, or any other way, is supporting the leftist infestation in this country. Period.

"Michelle stumbled, then finally managed to say that the marital arguing had been a ‘growth point’ in their relationship."

Yeah, like a tumor.

"Oprah only wants to cash in, using the White House as a backdrop for her show to perk up her ratings,” Michelle was quoted as telling her staff."

Pausing briefly during an intense set of barbell curls, Michelle pondered, "Doesn't she know only we get to use the WH for personal gain?"

That's nothing new with Oprah. Back in 2005, she attempted to access the French boutique "Hermes" for after-hour shopping. They wouldn't let her in, and she had a hissy-fit because she wasn't given special treatment. The fact is that she was denied access because the store was already providing after-hour shopping for other people, and Oprah wasn't on the list.

Well, I’ve got to agree with her on this one.

If this scenario is true, I can just see Orca with her multiple interior designers, hustling and bustling furiously with samples, swatches and miniature Lincoln bedroom models, all decorated in different motifs only to sphinctor-tightengly and startlingly realize that Her Royal Overweightness is NOT WELCOMED and NOT PART OF THE INNER CIRCLE after she threw her own life and popularity under the bus - only to have the REAL Queens of Chicongo diss her sooooooo very humiliatingly and publicly.

I bet is was like watching Holy Water being thrown in the devil’s face.

Heh heh heh...

At the end of this article the truth comes out:

"Oprah had unparalleled access, input, influence, and power."

Two words, CAT FIGHT.
