Despicable

I used to love Oprah.  She was a positive force in the media landscape.  She was the poster child for the American dream.  After a difficult childhood, with hard work and determination, Oprah has built a multi-billion dollar media empire.

For over 30 years, she has been a beloved figure in this country.  From Oscar-winning movie roles to her Emmy-winning talk show, she has been a national treasure.

Her magazine, in a market overrun with negative images for women, was a breath of fresh air.  Filled with inspirational and uplifting messages, it has also been a success.

I am not sure if her television network is doing as well.

But,

When did she become a racist?

When I see her go on the BBC and say that people are critical of Obama because he is black.  It doesn't just make me sad.  It makes me outraged and, frankly, it hurts.

It is so untrue.  It is so harmful to talk only about this president's race.  His character has proved him to be a liar.  He has knowingly lied numerous times for the past 5 years.  It is proven.  Not even liberal commentators can deny the president's falsehoods.

And, then Oprah (again) says that people don't like him because he is black.

I gotta tell ya, that hurts me, Oprah.  You are a very wealthy women because of the devotion of the American people.  Americans, mostly white, have been devoted to your brand and they have used their hard-earned money to support your brand and give you a life-style that most people can only dream of.

I wish that there could be an honest debate about this president's character and his liberal policies.  I really wish that we would only evaluate this man on the content of his character and not the color of is skin.

Republicans have ONLY talked about this president's socialist policies which are driving this country into the ground.

But, liberals seem incapable of talking about the president's business-killing, middle-class destroying, tax and regulation burdening policies.

They can only talk about his race.

Why?

Why, Oprah, why?

I think this focus on Obama's race is despicable.
