ATLANTA - President Obama opened his Friday of fundraising with a rousing speech to 600 donors in Chicago and closed it with an intimate appeal before 40 "friends" that included talk-show host, business woman and American icon, Oprah Winfrey.
"There's my good friend Oprah, who very early on when I was still running, just decided that she would support this guy with a name that nobody could pronounce," Obama said as he addressed guests seated around five candle-lit tables adorned with bouquets of red roses inside the cavernous Chateau-style home of actor/producer Tyler Perry.
"And just like books, skin cream - whatever she says she likes, then other people like to," he said. "She continues to be not just a friend but somebody Michelle and I seek out in thinking about not just the day to day issues of the day but trying to keep our focus on the big picture. And what she's done for so many people not just in America but around the world is extraordinary. "
Oprah was flanked at her table by Perry, longtime friend and companion Gail King, Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett, and Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed.
"We've had a good day," Obama continued. "It's warm every place. It gets you a little nervous about what's happening to global temperatures. But when it's 75 degrees in Chicago in the beginning of March it gets you thinking "
"Something's wrong," Oprah interjected.
"Yeah," Obama said in passing. "On other hand we really have enjoyed the nice weather."

So he has to get his digs in about global warming, because it’s been unusually warm as we approach springtime?? Sheesh....................
He wants to stop the rising of the oceans, and allow the planet to heal.
At the time of the Texas wildfires last year, he said that Rick Perry was “governor of a state on fire who denies global warming”.
...the big picture...
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ for the Obama family.
“Oprah helps me focus on the big picture”
That’s so sweet.
And it comforts me to know that Oprah is a presidential advisor.
You forgot to add the Barf alert. Gack!
Why does Obama continually talk about how people don’t know how to pronounce his name?
We know how to pronounce his name.
Now, Ted Kennedy once called him “Osama Obama”, but that was okay because Ted was a good Democrat, and all transgressions of good Democrats are forgiven. But I haven’t heard anyone else mispronounce it.
thats what I was going to say....if he needed Oprah, he is and was in worse shape than even we think he is...what a doofus....
Now we know. Obama’s not a muslim, he’s an New Ager, just like Ophra.
Obama: Oprah Helps Me 'Focus on the Big Picture'
Actually, it's hard to see anything but a big picture when this tub hits the tube!
“Oprah and Friends” to teach course on New Age Christ
By Warren Smith
Oprah Winfrey will be letting out all the stops on her XM Satellite Radio program this coming year. Beginning January 1, 2008, Oprah & Friends will offer a year-long course on the New Age teachings of A Course in Miracles.1 A lesson a day throughout the year will completely cover the 365 lessons from the Course in Miracles Workbook.
For example, Lesson #29 asks you to go through your day affirming that God is in everything I see.2 Lesson #61 tells each person to repeat the affirmation I am the light of the world.3 Lesson #70 teaches the student to say and believe My salvation comes from me.4
By the end of the year, Oprah & Friends listeners will have completed all of the lessons laid out in the Course in Miracles Workbook. Those who finish the Course will have a wholly redefined spiritual mindseta New Age worldview that includes the belief that there is no sin, no evil, no devil, and that God is in everyone and everything. A Course in Miracles teaches its students to rethink everything they believe about God and life. The Course Workbook bluntly states: This is a course in mind training5 and is dedicated to thought reversal.6
Oprah also attended Rev Wright’s school of hate early on.......
