    I can’t wait, I love the Obamas.

  • lucy

    Is it to early to call Obama the worst President ever , yet

    And really didn’t these 3 embarrass themselves enough, when they all trotted down to Copenhagen in 2 private jets to get the 2016 Olympics for the gangsters that run Chicago, like they were the biggest shit ever and got a big fat kick in the keister from the International Olympic members, voted Chicago out first.

    Obama and Oprah should stop with thinking their Angelina and Brad, every so often doing a interview together, you’re the President get to doing your job, since you doing such a awful job at it so far and stop thinking your a fu-cken celebrity.

  • sammy

    Two mega-celebrities with Jesus complexes coming together in honor of the actual Jesus. Perfect. All they need now is a cameo from Bono and the circle will be complete.

    On the upside: At least it’s not a “holiday” special.

  • tom

    Can`t wait for to hear that classic Christmas song:,
    “On the first day of Christmas Obama put us in $1 trillion in debt,
    On the second day of Christmas Obama put us in $3 trillion in debt,
    On the third day of Chrsitmas Obama put us in $12 trillion in debt,
    …..
    On the twelve day of the Christmas Obama saved so many jobs that unemployment went to 24%….”

  • anne

    Sammy LOL

    We can’t even celebrate Jesus’ birthday without Obama showing up to talk about himself. I mean really, Obama can’t even let Jesus be celebrated without being celebrated himself.

    I think Obama will go as the most narcissistic person to ever occupy the White-House.

  • Annie

    He needs to stay off TV and get to work!!! Debt, war, economy, you name it. GET TO WORK AND MAKE SOME DECISIONS!

  • Obozo and Oprot

    Obama and Oprah can SUCK IT!!!

    – Kathy Griffin

    Take a look at the “CHANGE” Obama has made in our country:

    If you still like him after this, you seriously need your head examined!

  • ad

    i think obama sucks and im not a republican. anyone offering to pray for me can keep that crap for themselves. and i agree that the first few posts blasting obama are clearly the same person (based on the almost identical times they were posted). anywho have a great thanksgiving everyone.

  • one term man

    and I thought Carter was bad. Good for all the moron who thought this man would rise the dead and make wine out of water! Can you say One Term President? Better believe it. He makes me miss Bush. Enough Said. He’s an empty book.

  • liberals in power

    @Annie:

    Annie, the man won the Presidency on ‘great speeches” all with a teleprompter to this day, even a small speech~! He had NO experience to speak of in anything, zero. He was a community Organizer who got to the Oval Office, only because everyone wanted the whole Bush team gone, And this is the sad result.
    Nov 2010, when Nancy and Co. are booted out, we may save the country, when they can no longer have all power. When Liberals rule the world, it’s not good. Even Clinton moved to the middle, but this President and that Nancy who is behind all the scenes, is a DISASTER, toooo Liberal, period.

  • fea

    How much will this interview cost taxpayers? Keep spending what you don’t have.

  • L.C

    Happy Thanks giving follow America. Peace .

  • Jordan

    To try and help his ratings! Obama has spent more in the first year than any other president. Please, he should have just gone to Hollywood! He is on a power trip to socialize America. We are in big trouble! Land of the free is gone……………….

    GOOD NOW YOU CAN HAVE YOUR CORN GRITS AND HAVE
    JEN HUDSON SING IN THE BACKGROUND SHE SHOULD BE
    INDUCTED INTO THE WHITE HOUSE AS THE OFFICIAL SINGER..!!

  • john

    I think it’s funny how people can praise Obama and say he is the best thing ever when he hasn’t done anything yet… Really.. this shows the real racism in America and I bet if he was a White Obama he’d be slammed left and right. YES! I know he is mixed and that’s great but people seem to go black when talking about the President.

    I hated Bush and I hope Obama improves this country but let’s face the fact he hasn’t done crap yet and I’m still trying to figure out what was the big uproar about him being the next President… Color? Well that says it all…

    i dont mind obama, he’s an ok president
    he has his goods and bads
    but i cant stand oprah, she seems so fake

  • Frank

    “i don’t mind obama, he’s an ok president
    he has his goods and bads”

    what are you 5 years old, what are his ‘ goods’

    spending more money in his first year then any President EVER in American history, ie adjusted for inflation Clinton 1.6 trillion, Bush 1.8 trillion both came into recessions and Bush had 911 first 9 months in office, Obama 3.5 trillion and counting.

    Not included id Obama’s 2010 budget that purposes to triple American national debt in 8 years, NOT including his trillions dollar Healthcare bill, or his Cap and Tax bill. So that in a decade America become one of the poorest nations on earth debited to every major power, especially the Chinese.

    Coming in office with 7% unemployment after spending trillions the unemployment has become 10.2%., numbers not seen in 3 decades.

    Travelled internationally more then any President in his first year, ( not once going to Iraq or Afghanistan the 2 countries American solders are fighting wars in) and with all that’s happening domestically.

    The first President to ever lobby for the Olympics in person travelling to Europe to do it, wasting 2 days to spend a couple of hours glad handing ( and then getting the boot from committee)

    The first President to get a Nobel Peace Prize his first year, ( people are still trying to figure out why a bunch of lefty Europeans in Oslo gave it to him, guesses are because he isn’t George Bush.)

    Has played more Golf then any President in is first year an example: in 10 months Obama has played the same rounds of golf that Bush played in 2 years and 10 months.

    Has has held more night time Press Speeches because you can’t really call them conferences when reports can barely ask 2 questions

    He has thrown more shig digs and parties then Bush and Clinton in 10 months combined

    First President to do late night TV shows, from David Letterman to Jay Leno, and been on more shows, one Sunday did all 5 Sunday shows and has clocked more time on TV then all President combined in the modern ear.

    Ah he has some goods, maybe Obama bowing and apologising for America at 3 Continent is his ‘good. OR

    Giving foreign terrorists behind the killing of 30000 Americans American constitutional protections and civil trials, instead of military trials and treating them as war combatants.

    Our “Do- Nothing” President, doing some more TV.
    .
    Why care for Swine Flu, or make sure our money doesn’t end up as bonuses, stop Iran’s nukes and save the economy?
    .

  • RD

    Doing TV and going on Oprah is much more FUN than actually WORKING as president.
    .
    Didn’t he just travel for 10 days to Asia, and came back for a fancy dinner -party?
    Now he is doing more TV?
    no work+ parties= the good life.

    At First I Did Not Want To Contribute To This But Sometimes Evil Pushes Us To Action. Just Once I Would Like To See, Read Or Hear. Everyone Trying To Unite In United States To Fix Problems And Not Be So Critical Of One Another. As Long As We Stay Divided We Are A Prime Target For A Fall. It Is So Easy To Criticize Someone Or Any On Else. But Much Harder To Fix Most Of The Problems That All Of Us In Someway Or Another Have Gotten Into. We Instead Spend All Of Our Good Energy Talking About And Putting One Another Down. I Believe That Somebody Will Probable Criticize This Short Statement. Oh Well!!!! I Still Manage To Have Hope And Love For Every United States Citizen.

    i think president obama is doing the best he can just like all the rest and it real kills me just think what if u were the president do u think u could do any better? we are so quick to judge one another but i dont see all the negative people trying to run for office themselves why because u dont have the education or the qualifications so lets not judge lets just stop thinking that any president is gonna make it all better it starts at home guys. politics is overated anyway half of america dont even know what going on in thier own toen let alone can understand the complexes of running the country so this is in response to everyone lets of all pray and be thankful for our time here on earth because when were dead and gone none of this will matter especially when christ returns it will all seem so silly wasteful!
