Oprah Parties With President Elect Obama

November 5th, 2008 // 9 Comments

An early high-profile cheerleader of Barack Obama this election season, talk show host Oprah Winfrey celebrated in Grant Park in her hometown of Chicago. She was joined by a crowd of campaign supporters who included an emotional Rev. Jesse Jackson.

Dressed in a bright green sweater, Winfrey stood out in the sea of red, white and blue flags that waved excitedly as President Elect Obama gave his acceptance speech on stage.

When she has him on her show for an interview, which she undoubtedly will, you just know she’ll end the Q&A by saying, “Take a look under your seat Mr. Obama…you’re holding the key to Air Force One!” And it really will be the key to Air Force One because she’s just that powerful.

    I’m hoping that Obama stays the hell away from Jesse Jackson. He’s poison. And he wants Barack’s nuts…that can’t be good.

    Sharpton, Jackson, all that are so untrustworthy…need to stay the hellz away and let this REALLY be about change. Yes, I think we can.

    Now they need to address the gay rights issue with the same passion. It’s now, people, it’s now…step up.

    You guys are stupid to think any positive changes will be made. Now we will see increased tax dollars going to lazy Americans who dont want to work, the loss of our RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS, and an extremely over liberal government. Things are supposed to be balanced, its ALL democrats, are you stupid people? Oh yeah and naturally the economy will bounce back but you will claim Obama did it….everyone was saying McCain was like Bush and the cause of the economy falling but if ANY of the stupid idiots who voted had paid attention to the truth they would have realised that McCain was saying Freddie Mac and Fannie May should have been regulated LONG ago while Obama was voting for it. Mindless sheep following the wolf. Seriously they really need to start making people take tests about the candidates at the polls to determine if anyone is allowed to vote because most the idiot liberal first time voters and african americans voted just because of his race or the fact that he was a good speaker. Hope you enjoy your increased taxes going to people who already sit on their lazy butts and collect welfare from YOU while you work hard to provide for your family.

    And Im SO sick of hearing about gay rights. Jesus are you serious? What the hell is the big deal about marriage? If you love someone you should not need a piece of paper claiming that, people whine way too much. You give someone an inch, they take a yard. People can be gay all they want this day in age but thats not enough, now they HAVE to have the right to get married and have children. Marriage is only sanctimoniuos in religion and I cant think of one religion that condones gays.

    Sarah – you sound like you’d be happier living under a dictatorship.

  5. yeah

    Sarah, you really need to get the ER…that stick up your ass has punctured your brain and what little brain cells that resided there have spilled out.

    Talk about out of touch and needing some education. Not everyone needs to believe in Obama, but everyone needs to be mindful of this country’s treatment of it’s fellow citizens and their rights. Next time it might be you they seek to curtail and limit.

    Oh, wait, as long as there’s a WalMart and a sheet section, you’ve got it made, right, Sarah?

    OMG, is this really the 21st century?

  6. So Right

    Sarah is right!

    The only reason Obama won was because of the black vote. This was a race based on race only. How sad because these ppl dont understand the consequences that are going to follow with Obama’s win. So yea we basically voted for a president who first of all, has many terrorist friends, who wont place his hand over his heart when the national anthem or pledge of allegiance is being played, and who weirdly enough has a very muslim name. “Beware of the wolf in sheep’s clothing”
    Osama Bin Laden = Obama and Biden SCARY!

    Barack Obama did not win “because of the black vote”, which is such an incredibly racist statement that I cannot even fathom why someone would write that. It has really negative connotations relating to race and that is just wrong.

    Anyway, GET OVER IT. He’s our president now; your president now. Now is not the time to talk about shit that doesn’t matter. We need to get behind him when he’s inaugurated to put this country back in a good direction.

    Black population = 13%
    Voted in 2004 = 20% of 13%
    Voted in 2008 = 25% of 13%

    The math is whites and other minorities put Obama in office. The Dems could have put a talking parrot up for election and would have won. Get over it black folks. It was planned.
