Did Obama Skip The NAACP To Talk With Oprah?

From the Politico:

Oprah interviewed the Obamas last week


Oprah Winfrey didn’t just interview Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann, last week. The talk show queen also made a trip to the White House to sit down with President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama.

Winfrey spoke with the Obamas on Thursday before heading up to New Hampshire to meet the Romneys on Friday.

Both interviews will be published in the November issue of O, The Oprah Magazine.

“The conversations were wide-ranging and covered aspects of both couples’ personal and political lives,” a spokeswoman for the magazine told POLITICO.

The issue hits newsstands October 9.

Winfrey made her first-ever presidential endorsement during the 2008 election, publicly backing Obama and hitting the campaign trail on his behalf. While she remains a supporter of the president, Winfrey has said that she won’t be “out there” for him this time around.

This is the entire article from the Politico. Notice how coy the headline is very coy about the exact date (“last week). Which just happened to be Thursday, July 12th, the very day Obama told the NAACP he had too much on his schedule to speak to their convention.

Even though, according to all accounts, Obama’s official schedule was completely free that day. But Obama sent Joe Biden to the NAACP instead.

But notice that the Politico does not mention Obama skipping the NAACP’s convention at all. There is not one word about it. The NAACP must have completely slipped their mind, despite their dozens of articles about the NAACP convention last week.

Besides, lest we forget, Oprah does not even have a TV show anymore. In fact, this was an interview for an issue of her ‘O Magazine,’ that won’t even be published until October. How hard would it have been for Oprah to re-arrange her schedule?

So where is the outrage? And why instead is the news media covering up Obama’s ‘diss’ of the NAACP?

    Oprah….is she still around?

    Geez…I ignored her in the 80’s.

    Oprah & Obama met to dispel the Obama: The Amateur book’s claims backing up the constant claims of
    the Obama’s shunning Oprah.

    Did you see Michelle refusing to let Obama kiss her at the Olympic basketball game. When they finally kissed, Michelle looked like she was miserable. Her daughter trying to comfort her mother afterwards.

    No way their lousy marriage got better after Obama won the presidency. It’s just Michelle is having the time of her life now, when her husbands never around.

      You touch upon an interesting point.

      Yup…mr and mrs hate one another but unlike the Clin-toons, they don’t hide it as well and can’t seem to find sufficient distraction to otherwise occupy their time while leaving the “marriage” in status-quo-land.

      I was kinda hoping that it would be the first divorce-while-in-office, leaving Barry a shrunken, beaten man (both hypothetically and for real). However, shortly after he’s un-elected (de-elected?) I’m pretty sure thunder-thighs will vacate the O-household with rockets on her shoes.

      Then, the bi/metro-sexual choom-ganger will be stuck paying large sums of money to ex mrs liar just to keep her mouth shut. But…in the negro society…..I have found that ex’s can’t keep their mouths shut for long about how rotten the hubby was. They love bringing up his failings and shortcomings…it’s what they do. It’s a culture thang….y’all wuddent git it.

      She is by far the angriest female I have ever seen put in the public spotlight, well….compared to maybe Phyllis Diller or Joan Rivers…but for real. She hates the United States almost as much as her sock-puppet hubby. Fortunately she has none of the political acumen that Barry does…not that he has much. But she would just as soon collect a paycheck for doing nothing, as is her due.

      However, the newsies will have a field day trying to decide which side to support when the Obama marriage self-destructs.
