Romneys Sit Down for Interview With Oprah Winfrey
Newsmax ^

Posted on 07/15/2012 12:07:32 AM PDT by tsowellfan

Republican Mitt Romney is talking about his presidential campaign with Oprah Winfrey.

The presumptive GOP nominee and his wife, Ann, met with Winfrey on Friday for an interview that will be published in O, The Oprah Magazine. Romney aides late Saturday said the conversation took place as the Romneys were ready to begin a leisurely weekend at their lakefront house in Wolfeboro, N.H.

The aides would not discuss the interview topics or tone before its publication.

Winfrey in 2007 broke her long-standing rule against supporting politicians and came out for Barack Obama. She became one his strongest advocates and helped him win over female voters...

Big mistake. Her empty headed audience would never walk away from Omama. Why can’t these guys just go where they’re welcome?

Winfrey in 2007, broke wind and her long-standing rule against supporting politicians and out came Barack Obama. He became one his strongest smelling advocates and helped her whine to over whelm female voters.

This seems more like a move to needle Obama with Oprah.

No one needles like Romney.

In fact, he needles some of us so much we will be voting down ticket only.

It's bad enough to be taking money from Europe or anywhere else outside the United States but to take money from China where privatization is limited... any money from China just has to have a connection to the Chinese government.

Next question: What did Obama promise China in return?

According to ulsterman, oprah is pissed off at Obama because of valerie jarret. This could be Oprah getting “even” with Obama, not barack, but michelle Obama.

What audience? Oprah did well when North Shore Liberal housewives supported her but that’s gone.

Who in the heck is running Romney’s campaign? If soupy Sales was still alive he would have a decent audience.

“Who’s going to see it? It’s on OWN.”

It’s for the magazine.

First of all, when will she decide to publish it, and second, who will decide to buy it? Let’s see, in these times and prices rising on food items like crazy, a struggling mom is going to opt for a disgraced narcissists magazine over food for her kids.

Romney was better off with the etch-a-sketch guy running the show. Talk about tone deaf. Obama’s bunch of 99ers never take a day off and the Romneys retreat to their lake house for a quiet weekend?

I suppose that is his way of saying we have nothing to fear from an Obama Presidency.

It says a LOT that coward, pussy Mr. ROmneyCARE
AGAIN needed his wife to protect him as a ‘wing man’.

Mr. RomneyCARE was CHOSEN to lose — after “winning”
against conservatives by cheating, backstabbing,
and changing the rules.

Mr. RomneyCARE has NO interest in winning, just
making more money by running for Obama and Soros (his
partner and friend in JET BLUE, again).

Meeting with a slow witted member of the black klan. What is the point?

Lots of Bo supporters are screeching the same message. It is called, divide and conquer, split the opposition. Do we really want 4 more years of the leader of the black klan?

Is Oprah still on the air? I thought viewers tired of this empty headed bore.

Yet another stupid mistake, after the idiotic demand of an “apology” for the Bain attacks. White ABANDONED Oprah after she endorsed Obama in 2008, and her show was destroyed. Blacks will NEVER vote for Romney. The best he can hope for is a Zimmerman hearing on Election Day to distract them and keep them home. There is NOTHING to be gained by this crap, and only things to lose, as Oprah will no doubt bring up the past racism of the LDS, and why didn’t Mittens speak up; the NAACP “provocation”, etc. IDIOTS! Go on Mark Levin and Michael Savage’s shows instead! BUILD THE BASE!

“In fact, he needles some of us so much we will be voting down ticket only.”

And just what do you plan to do for the next four years as our country disappears? Do you actually still think a Republican House and Senate can or will do anything to stop this dictator??? He’s already proven (much more than what’s coming to the public’s attention) that he’ll bypass both Congress and the Courts to accomplish all he intends to bring the Republic down as swiftly as possible and hand it to our most dangerous enemies.

Yeah, down ticket only, that’ll keep BHO at bay - NOT.

“O” magazine has been around for a long time. Women buy it.

I agree, our candidate is tone deaf, but what do we expect? Neither one of these guys have a clue what life is like for the average American, or the real fear and anger that we feel. He needs someone from the middle class advising him, that’s for sure. I have sent emails, but I don’t think they read them.

Her magazine does well. Women buy it. Not just black women, women of all races. Being interviewed for it is risky, (a risk that I wouldn’t take, considering how liberals cut and paste, and take things out of context) but Oprah has reportedly been feuding with the Obamas, so who knows.

You are absolutely right. While I share the “down ticket” feelings, and have considered doing this myself, I know I must hold my nose and vote for him in order to try to save the country.

Yes, I know - and at the rate he’s going, he’ll need every vote we can cough up and then some.
