I don't think it is so much a reflection on Obama as a re-coil by the public regarding all things Oprah. I mean really...people are just oh-so-tired
of her sanctimonious decrees of what is good, popular, appropriate - whatever.
She definitely has a knack for picking winners among products and people but after 25 years or so of watching her own personal quest for fulfillment
and happiness through diets, gurus, makeovers, etc... it's quite clear she must not be too happy with herself so who is she to judge others?
What does it say about a woman who puts her own photo on the cover of every magazine? Is she that insecure? Do I need someone that self obsessed
telling me who to vote for or what to buy? Uh, no.
She seems very earnest and kind but the public is just done with that type of preaching and product placement - especially from the wealthiest woman
in a world of economic decline and diminishing resources. It just seems a bit too consumeristic and voyeuristic.
