Oprah Declines White House Invite to Help Sell Obamacare

Even Oprah isn’t on board with ObamaCare

Even Oprah isn’t on board with ObamaCare
As the White House was gearing up to sell ObamaCare to the American people last summer, Valerie Jarrett, the president’s pointwoman on a host of issues, phoned Oprah Winfrey.

She invited the Queen of All Media to join celebrities, including Amy Poehler, Jennifer Hudson and Alicia Keys, to meet with President Obama and discuss how they could generate publicity for his health-care law.

Oprah refused.

“All of Oprah’s top people thought she would go, because when the president invites you to the White House, most people automatically say yes,” said one of Oprah’s closest advisers. “But Oprah said she didn’t have the time or inclination to go. It wasn’t like she had to think it over. It was an immediate, flat-out, unequivocal no.”

Oh, But wait until you hear WHY she's pissed at the Obamas!

Michelle Is Jealous Of Oprah

And that created the distance between the president and Ms. Winfrey.

There is a disgusting interview in O Magazine in which President Obama speculates that Justice Roberts ruled to uphold the Affordable Care Act in order to maintain the reputation of the court.

It was an accidental but all-too-candid admission that he thinks judges make rulings of constitutional law not based on what the constitution says, but on other factors.

Michelle Is Jealous Of EVERYBODY

I personally don't care what

I personally don't care what their tittle tattle is. It's interesting to note that just last week Piers Morgan was co-hosting on the view and he announced how Obama and Oprah are what is good for America. The response was silence ..no response at all...Whoopi immediately went to break.

Sad that she is doing the right thing,

but for all the wrong reasons!

Not buying it

If she's distancing herself from the Obamas it's because she's been introduced to the wall that goes up around any president after they take office.

Not apologizing for the Obamas but facts are facts, presidents have to be insulated in order for the many powerful lobbyists hired by corporatists to get their agendas pushed through.

Well then it's a one way

Well then it's a one way "wall" because they asked her to come on board to push their ObamaSnare agenda.

I believe the writer in that Oprah is pissed because she didn't get the open access deal they promised her.

They gave the IRS plenty of face time!

I love watching the B boons fight.

Just waiting to see them...

flinging excrement at each other......
