Oprah Refuses To Act As ObamaCare Shill

Oprah Winfrey’s extended breakup with Barack Obama continued when the media mogul declined an opportunity to join other celebrities in hawking the president’s unpopular health care law.

According to reports, a source close to Winfrey said that Obama’s top adviser personally invited the talk show legend to a meeting at the White House last summer.

“All of Oprah’s top people thought she would go,” the source indicated, “because when the president invites you to the White House, most people automatically say ‘Yes.’”

Instead, the staffer noted, Winfrey “said she didn’t have the time or inclination to go.”

In fact, she didn’t even consider the offer before flatly dismissing Valerie Jarrett’s invitation.

“It wasn’t like she had to think it over,” the unnamed source explained, calling Winfrey’s answer “an immediate, flat-out, unequivocal no.”

The billionaire superstar was an early supporter of Obama, risking her own popularity to campaign for the unproven candidate. In the subsequent five years, she has moved ever further away from the president’s policies — and the Obama family.

Reports indicate that she initially believed her close ties with the first family would benefit her upstart cable network. According to one source, she had “big plans, and a team was put together to come up with proposals that would have been mutually beneficial.”

Since then, those plans have apparently failed to materialize. The source blames the strained relationship on the fact “that the Obamas had absolutely no intention of keeping their word and bringing her into their confidence.”

Conservatives have long realized that ObamaCare was destined to fail, with many predicting devastating results associated with its implementation. At the time, these voices were roundly belittled by leftist mouthpieces across the nation.

As more and more high-profile progressives abandon ship, though, ObamaCare’s unpopularity is becoming much harder to ignore.

  1. Well, I'm glad to see that Oprah might actually be waking up. Any respect I ever had for her was totally destroyed when she announced, "I've never been political before, but I am this time, or I'm going to vote this time." Something along those lines when obama announced he was running. I thought, gee Oprah, I wonder why now? Could it be because he's "black?" I mean how racist can you get. She didn't care that he was qualified, just that he was black. I guess like a lot of people, she's finally finding out that obama has the morals of a slug…

      You give to much credit to the slug.The big O woke up and this time she is against the white side of him.Sambo had to do somethjing really wrong for her to drop him like a hot potatoe.

    I never cared what this fat bozo thought. If she wasn't black shed be working or would be on welfare not becoming a multi millionaire because of women and men who don't have anything to do but watch Homey.
