President Obama Talks Politics And Life On Oprah

| Filed under: TV NewsPolitikBarack ObamaOprah WinfreyMichelle Obama


It was a first for the Oprah show.

She endorsed President Obama during his '08 campaign, but she's never had a sitting president and the first lady appear on her talk show before.

President Obama and Michelle talked about life in the White House in an interview that was taped last week, just days before a mission was to be carried out to kill Osama bin Laden.

Seeming cool and collected, Obama talked about living inside the "the bubble" of presidency and missing out on some of his daughters' growing up and their most memorable moments.

He also spoke about the absurdity around the birth certificate controversy, calling those who seek attention "carnival barkers." He told Oprah that "reality TV is seeping into how we think about our politics."

Obama also revealed that he believes that many think the American dream is "slipping away." He wants his legacy to provide hope for the American people and know that there is always opportunity if they work hard and do the right things.

With the killing of the world's #1 terrorist, Obama has definitely restored a feeling of pride and hope in the American people. We have a feeling that Obama's legacy will be quite an extraordinary one.

    Obama is all about destroying the American dream… haha. What happened to taking care of your family by hard work? I don't want anything handed to me or anyone else on a silver platter, that's not what America was built on. Oh yeah, and open up his birth certificate from the government website on adobe, the signatures and information are all broken up into layers. You can delete and add whatever you want. Try doing that with YOUR birth certificate my friends. :)

    I'm Canadian and I must say that every time Obama goes on TV shows like Oprah…we just roll our eyes. And when he personally invites celebs like Jay-Z and Beyonce to visit him and talks about Chris Brown….it's just pathetic. He seems like a complete fame whore. The message he sends is that these high school dropout celebs are better than him (and by extension better than everyone)…Obama kowtows to celebs. He's an absolute fool. Thank God Canadian politicians are not so shallow and sycophantic - towards CELEBS!!!! Most celebs are such creepy elitists and DUMB DUMB DUMB. Geez Obama - get it together.

    To me him going on Oprah cheapens the office of POTUS. Also, how soon people forget that Obama was AGAINST the war, he was against any of the surges that worked, he was against hunting down Osama from the get-go and if he'd actually had his way we would have given up that search a long time ago. He got elected and realized he HAD to keep fighting the war and he had to keep on searching for Osama. I give credit to our troops for sticking it out and never giving up. I'll also give credit to BUSH for never giving up on our troops and their ability to hunt down the bastard.

  14. 14

    Re: kjen

    At first he wanted to find him and then later it sounded like he gave up. Good thing Obama made finding him top priority.


    "The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him."
    - G.W. Bush, 9/13/01

    "I want justice…There's an old poster out West, as I recall, that said, 'Wanted: Dead or Alive,'"
    - G.W. Bush, 9/17/01, UPI

    "I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority."
    - G.W. Bush, 3/13/02

    "I am truly not that concerned about him."
    - G.W. Bush, repsonding to a question about bin Laden's whereabouts,
    3/13/02 (The New American, 4/8/02)

    Bush gave up keeping Osama a priority to switch his attention to Iraq. (his words) Candidate Obama said he would shift focous back to Osama, and have him captured or dead during his presidency , with or without Pakistans help. He delivered, Bush failed.

    Man up and give credit where credit is due.

    He's a complete poser. can't wait for the next election…. come on conservatives!!!

  17. 17

    Thats because rather than doing the jobs they dont know how to, they would rather be celebrities @blunt, its actually minimally better and not because of dip shit. we would be much farther along is it wasnt for all of his horrid mistakes like the health care turd aka the main reason no one is heiring. Business is waiting to see the final out come before they pick up, so this pending doom of a law this shithead is ramming up our asses, is the reason its so slow. ATT FINCH, How bout you man up and grow a pair admit is a fucking failure and move on. He didn't do anything. Hes a joke and is sad you think he deserves so much credit because of him the country is a joke to the world and irrevocably damaged.

    I see there are a bunch of crazy right wingers and birthers on this post. I never ceases to amaze me that people can not remember who put the America economy in this mess and created the 10+ year war looking for WOMD. B U S H!!!!!!

    I hope that besides wanting to provide 'hope', that he can set some kind of framework for future fiscal responsibility and stability in government.
