On The Hype Over Oprah Winfrey's Political Romance With Barack Obama

There were hot exchanges between the supporters of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama over The Oprah Winfrey show in Iowa , South Carolina, and New Hampshire.

The following is the summary of my comments on the washingtonpost.com , Huff Post News and Topix.


Oprah Winfrey and Senator Barack Obama need a reality check, because they are politically naïve and unrealistic.

Barack Obama does not really know what it means to be the President of the greatest nation on earth and the challenges of leading the world.

I have been well informed on the global role of America on earth, so, I can say who is capable of becoming the next President of the United States of America and that American patriot is, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, proud wife, mother and role model for American girls and women.

Oprah Winfrey is neither a wife nor a mother and has no clue on raising children; talk less of leading a nation.

I am disappointed that a black woman who refused to marry and does not want to have children is the only woman in the whole of America, which Obama sees as his role model.
What is Oprah Winfrey?
An actress.
She forgets that there are more needy children in America than South Africa.
There are more millions of Americans begging for a living than the so-called poor in South Africa.
Oprah does not go to Darfur where Angelina Jolie, George Clooney and other American celebrities are not scared to go, but goes to South Africa where there is no real humanitarian emergency, except African men raping innocent baby girls. She does not even talk about the real issues in South Africa, but only making an exhibition of her Leadership Academy for Girls.
These Public Relations stunts are all social marketing strategies to promote and sell more of her products and services on oprah.com and her Oprah Winfrey Talk Show.

Senator Hillary Clinton is realistic.
The hand that rocks the cradle can rule the world.
Let us support Hillary Clinton for President.

A woman who has been active in the progress of American democracy since she was only 13 and met with the great Martin Luther King, Jr., in 1962.

Hillary stood by her husband Bill Clinton when he went through trials of leadership as the President of America.
She is a Senator and still cares for her old mother and spends quality time with her beautiful daughter, Chelsea.

Oprah does not know what is motherhood and does not even know what it means to be a wife and only lives on the make believe world of her Oprah Winfrey Show on TV, where she hides behind a mask of cosmetic facade and scripts written for her by other people. I wonder why Oprah Winfrey who was Miss Black Tennessee when she was 18 now feels insecure without her make up?.

"The Amount Of Time You Spent In Washington Means Nothing Unless You Are Accountable For The Judgments You Made"
~ Oprah Winfrey while endorsing Presidential Candidate, Senator Barack Obama in Iowa on Saturday, December 08, 2007.
That quote only exposes the political naivety of Oprah Winfrey.

I watch Oprah Winfrey Show weekly and I am even the author of two journals on oprah.com, but I will not flatter her like those who pay her lip service and eye service to curry her favour. Oprah Winfrey is a very smart business woman, but her knowledge of politics is very shallow.

Have you ever taken time to study the ethics and politics of nation building?

Nation building starts from the cradle.

Good parenting is the bedrock of the family and the foundation of a family will also be the foundation of the society and the foundation of the society will be the foundation of the nation. Check the family backgrounds of Oprah Winfrey and Barack Hussein Obama.

In Africa, a woman who has refused to marry and have children is not a good role model for any people or nation. A woman who is past 50 and is more comfortable living with her dogs than children needs a reality check.

If you pitch both Orpah Winfrey and Barack Hussein Obama against Hillary Clinton on the critical realities in Sudan and Zimabawe, I bet you that both Winfrey and Obama would be ignorant of the facts. Orpah Winfrey thinks South Africa is the heart and soul of Africa and Barack Obama needed a guide to find his way to his father's village in Kenya. He should have asked Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie for direction. Orpah Winfrey's roots end in Liberia and there are more displaced poor girls in Liberia who need schools than those in South Africa where she built her Public Relations Leadership Academy for Girls to impress Nelson Mandela and South Africans who ape Americans in pop culture and commercial patronage.

Aid should be given to the poor and needy who need it most.

South Africans are not in dire need of schools as the African refugees in Darfur, Morovia, Freetown and other parts of Africa. I do not believe in cosmetic makeover, I believe in calling a spade a spade, whether black or white.

The future of America is at stake and should not be used for publicity stunts.

The leadership of the United States of America is more than a TV Talk Show.

Recommended book for Oprah Winfrey: "The Art of War" by Sun Tzu.

osinachi, am shocked to read your story...you sound like a jelous man who can never see the standards of Oprah. Talk for Nigeria and not Africa as a whole regarding a non married woman. Your thinking is quite shallow and of very poor reasoning. Oprah can spend her money as she desires, its hers and not publics and you cannot compare Obama and Hussein. I think you are very insulting. Wanju!!

Wanju,
I appreciate your comment and I agree with you that I was really insulting. But the bitter truth can be insulting as well.

Contrary to what you said, I am not a jealous man. I am not an emotional person.
In fact I am still a devout fan of Lady Oprah Winfrey and I am the only fan who dissed her, the others did so on oprah.com and she actually felt sober afterwards.

I love Oprah and I would have prefered her as a wife and mother and more realistic.
You can read my journals on oprah.com.

When you are past 50 and you have refused to marry and even refused to have children and you would rather be seen cuddling your dogs instead of children, that would not be an example worthy of emulation for women on earth.
God made woman to be a wife and a mother.
Finis.

Cheers and God bless.
