Oprah joins Mitt and Ann Romney at home for a cooking session
The Daily Mail (UK) ^ | 10/5/12 | Sadie Whitelocks

Posted on 10/05/2012 4:51:58 PM PDT by ruralvoter

The Obamas have a well-documented relationship with Oprah, but now Mitt and Ann Romney have opened up to the chat show host for the first time.

The Republican power couple welcomed the media mogul into their roomy New Hampshire holiday home on Lake Winnipesaukee, to talk about family, religion, food and, of course, politics.

Casually dressed in jeans, with the top button of his shirt undone, the presidential nominee even took it upon himself to pack Ms Winfrey a doggie bag for the road, as they finished off in the kitchen.

Don't mean to promote Oprah's magazine, but the article and pics from The Daily Mail are worth a look. The last part of the article is about her interview with the Obama's. Quite a contrast.

I suppose it's too much to hope that Oprah is having some regrets regarding the Obamas....well,at least *him*.

The Romney's have a lovely home and I have to say they all seemed to be having a good time. I did look at the bottom of the article but I don't understand what MIchelle Obama she means
as far as the 2016 date goes.

“Meanwhile Mrs Obama revealed that she often finds it difficult to discuss things with her husband, as he has so many other things on his mind.

She told Ms Winfrey: ‘I’m stockpiling a list of issues that I’d like to discuss with him in 2016.’

Forget that. But just the sight of Oprah being friendly and breaking bread with the hated rich whiteys will cause an epidemic of incontinence throughout the whorehouse media, not to mention the temple prostitutes of DC.

Due to the money troubles with her cable network OWN, her focus right now is most likely winning back the millions of viewers she lost when she endorsed Obama. Good luck with that!

MO thinks she will have to wait until obama is out of office to talk to him, hence 2016.

And Oprah should feel free to totally enjoy the doggie bag, as she did the meal and company, without any fear whatsoever, unlike when the left packs doggie-bags for the right.

Mooschelle and Bammy threw her under the bus. I’d say a little tit for tat or a certain middle digit.

That’s when President Romney will pardon him, release him from prison and send the whole family to Kenya or Indonesia, their choice.

Yeah but if she had issues wouldn’t she want him to tackle them in his next 4 year term if he was to win again. That was what confused me if they were government type issues or maybe he will never leave. Oh my gosh

Yes. A few weeks prior to his untimely death, he and Carlson had a “home cooked meal”, hosted by that amazin chef, Bill Ayers. Doggie bags appear to have been prepared.

And it seems that she was taken with the 'strong family vibe' created by the duo, adding that 'cute little kids just seemed to keep coming out of every nook and corner' during her visit.

Ok, Oprah is a black racist. But she's also a woman. Oh Well, she does know what family is. White family, Black family when it comes to kids, she defers to God. Got no problem with that.

Just a small jibe;

Don’t misspell DEMOCRAT.

Spell it the way it should be spelled: DemoKaRATZ.

That way when you say RATZ, we know to whom you are referring.

Nitpicky I know. Fun, YES.

AGREE!

I wouldn't trust her as far as I could throw her.

She and most other blacks showed us in 2008 that to them skin color trumps everything else.

Forget about right and wrong, ethics, morality, rational thought, patriotism, religion, family values and everything else - they will sell you out in a split second to help Obama.

She is trying to imply that because he is president, he has little time to discuss issues with her right now. So when he is no longer president in 2016 (yeah right) she will have her list and talk with him.

She thinks he will win. bwahahahaha

IIRC, it was Valerie Jarrett who threw the Orca under the bus because the Moose was jealous of her. Omama is too stupid to care one way or the other.

According to what I read in The Amateur, Mooch gave Oprah the cold shoulder because she was sick of her influence with Barry, and Oprah fumed about it for a long time. So this is probably just Oprah trying to tick off the royal couple-—not about any real integrity on Oprah’s part.

"I don’t trust Oprah...

Maybe not.

But I so much would have preferred Oprah as president over the past four years.

She's at least half-way normal.

Dr. Phil as Vice President...

She'd keep Hillary...

Oh yeah, I wish Oprah had been elected rather than Barack.

We could have, and Sweet Jeezus we did, have done worse.

If Oprah indeed defers to god, I'm afraid it's a god of the lower-case variety. She openly pushes New Age religion, and she has mocked the premise that Jesus Christ is the way to God.

Reality check for moochelle.

No sane wife waits 4 years with a list.

Face it. obama hates you. He’s using his pres—ential position as an excuse to ignore you.Stop whining.

Be a good wife and make yourself scarce or there will be no more free vacations for you.

on another note, what issues could moochelle possibly have? She has everything she ever wanted. Everyone is her servant.

Do you think that she has figured out that alienating the intelligent women (ie Conservative women) and throwing a far left agenda in everyone’s face will not pay the bills. Liberals may be loud, but they sure as heck are lousy customers / consumers. She may have figured it out - she is far from an ignorant woman.

I feel sorry for Oprah. For all her fame and fortune, for all her New Age “insight” and spirituality, she strikes me as a deeply unhappy woman struggling to fill a void. No husband, no kids, but she’s the expert in how modern people should live their lives. I don’t think she ever considered that she might one day be culturally irrelevant, and she has nothing to fall back on except what’s in the fridge.

Oprah is one of those libs I just can’t hate. I don’t know if it’s because she had her start in Baltimore (my home stomping grounds) or what... I know she’s an Obamugabe groupie, as many are — black or white — but even so, there seems to be enough genuine American “good” in her that I can’t completely throw her aside.
