Probably no one paid a bigger price for backing Obama than Oprah-—she was queen of talk, riding a huge wave of popularity, living in luxury, earning big BIG bucks when she very publicly backed 2008 Obama, holding fund-raisers at her posh Cali estate.
Her audiences were appalled-—not just at her backing Obama but that she did it so brazenly. Her TV ratings soon fell-—she lost her perch as daytime talk queen-—and is now struggling to maintain her failing cable slot-—which is eating up her dwindling fortune.
The story gets even more tawdry-—when she showed up at the WH-—Michele treated Oprah like a pariah and an interloper—barely giving her the time of day——refusing to go on Oprah’s talk show WRT healthy eating.
Not surprising Oprah is nowhere to be seen as Obama struggles in 2012.
As I recall she had Obama on her show but did not invite Mccain on.
Although McCain did go on The View and it didn't help him any. I recall at the end Whoopie told Mccain that his SCOTUS picks would bring back slavery, neither appeared to of heard of the 14th Amendment that outlawed slavery constitutionally.
Painful to watch such brain dead talk. I actually know a regular viewer of the View who saw the show in person and she is very clueless, she likes Sex in the City too. She claims she didnt vote for O though.
Hopefully, all of the formerly beautiful, rich, and famous lefties will suffer the same fate as Oprah has.
LOL! As for Oprah, she had it comin' after falsely tainting Texas beef. Karma is a bee-otch. Super Soul Sunday that.
Obama played Oprah - sadly she went along with it...

It sure is!
Did you get the ironic bit at the end of Oprah’s recollection? Michelle sat her down and kept going over and over again about how good the White House pastry chefs were. Why they made the best pies, she kept telling her over and over again. Oprah took that as a big fat cue, yet their chat ended and-no pie-”I got no pie.”
Silly girl-as any Tea Partier in 2009 could have told her, in this world you don’t wait for somebody to give you a slice; in this world you make your own damn pie!
Yep, O’s legacy is dying a slow death just like Oprah’s OWN network. Oprah should be somewhere nice, retired with her billion dollars. But instead she’s going to blow it all to prop up a failing TV network that will never go anywhere. Like 0bama, she went to the well too many times and people just want her to go away already.
I shed no tears for Oprah. She made her choice and made it all too public.
Weeping over his win, like a proud Mama.
She didn’t know him at all. He uses people.
She got used and thrown away.
