Supposedly considering a run in 2020, and her speech last nite was very "Presidential"..

Oprah Winfrey’s impassioned speech at the Golden Globe Awards Sunday night has sparked a grass roots call for the media mogul to run for president of the United States in 2020.

“It’s up to the people,” Winfrey’s longtime partner, businessman and educator Stedman Graham, 66, told the Los Angeles Times, following an outpouring of support on social media from entertainers to groups like the National Organization for Women and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. “She would absolutely do it,” he said. The hashtag #Oprah2020 began trending while the awards were still in progress.

What has the O ever run in her life? From an experience standpoint, she'd be right down there with the community organizer we had for eight years.

You serious, Clark? She has as much experience as Dotard Drumpf.

As a liberal, I hope she doesn't run. Would love to see a Gabbard/Sanders ticket, easy win for the Dems.

Actually, Trump has a quite a bit of executive experience running many businesses -- quite successfully, I might add, notwithstanding his bankrupticies. But O...well maybe running to the studio to her makeup artist. :coffee:

Trump was born with a silver spoon in his mouth;Oprah was born poor and black in the Jim Crow South.Today she is a billionaire who owns a cable TV network, a successful magazine and is one of the most recognized and admired women in the country.

You're both wrong. Oprah has a lot of business experience with her own production company's, magazine, etc. and no one is a version of retard in this day and age. You should know better.

If I was considering someone along the lines of Oprah, i'd rather it be Martha Stewart. I think she is smarter and tougher. I like Oprah fine as a person, but she's too liberal for me as president.

President Trump would defeat Oprah just like Hillary. This country is not ready to elect a woman President. Why, women don't like other women and most men would rather see another man in charge.

So what? Trump could have just as easily squandered his daddy's inheritance.

As far O is concerned, she's a successful entertainer. That's it. And that's not to take anything away from her -- but to compare her to a successful business person who has successfully run a large business empire is laughable.
Trump actually has very good business which is why the economy has turned the corner and will likely even get better.

There was the general sentiment some years ago that this country might not have been ready for a BLACK President...but that theory proved to be incorrect. I am not a fan of hers...but Oprah isn't just a "woman candidate". She enjoys the sort of widespread "respect" that makes her a big threat in ANY political election. It the Trump election has proven anything at all, it has shown that the voters hold "political experience" in pretty low regard at vote-time...and who can blame them?

Trump tries to paint himself as a great "success story"...but his financial achievements PALE when compared to Oprah's...IMO. You can get very far when you are born with a golden spoon in your mouth...but it ain't as easy lifting yourself from homelessness to billionaire status. As I said, I'm not a fan of hers...but respect should be given where it's due.

No...I thought that Hillary would win. And Trump's victory is all the proof that I need for my belief that the American voters have gotten so disgusted with "politics-as-usual", that they are willing to support a total Washington OUTSIDER...provided that this outsider is rich enough not be "bought", by "special interests". Trump fit that bill...and so does Oprah.

Being able to win an election does necessarily mean one is qualified. I told my wife 6 months ago that if the Dems really wanted to win, they'd run Oprah.

There are a limited number of people who are capable of winning the Presidential election. She may not be qualified for the office at all, but she has the name power and recognizeability to win the election. And the fact she is black and a woman won't hurt.

The Cecil B. DeMille Award is an honorary Golden Globe Award bestowed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment". It was first presented on February 21, 1952 at the 9th Annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony and is named in honor of its first recipient, director Cecil B. DeMille. Honorees are selected by the HFPA board of directors and are presented annually (except for 1976 and 2008). The first woman to receive the honor was Judy Garland in 1962 who, at 39 years of age, was also the youngest honoree ever to receive the award, while Samuel Goldwyn, at the age of 93, in 1973, was the oldest.[1]

Maybe someone can explain to me exactly how a talk show host made such "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment"? Is O a great actress? A great director? A great screenwriter? What exactly are O's "outstanding contributions" to the Fluff World of Glitter besides, perhaps having the gift of gab? I can understand how people like DeMille, Garland and Goldwyn could have received this kind of award -- but a talk show host who wears her politics on herself lie she wears her makeup? Has any other tabloid talk show host ever received such an award? This award she received couldn't be just a classic example of Affirmative Action Hollywood Style, could it?

"I want all the girls watching to know that a new day is on the horizon."

Most of Oprah's speech was about the "new day" empowerment of women. If she were to become president, there will be more than just Republicans being told: "They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back."

Men, beware!

"You need to examine the reasons you’ve chosen to drop a stone in the water. And try to understand what the ripples will be."

There's nothing evil about most of the 1 percenters.
The evil part is how the current administration is treating them.

Stimulating growth in the economy by favorable tax treatment
for the ultra wealthy is a complete non-starter. You might have
expected something similar in 18th century France. Criminal.

The only stimulation the current administration seeks is
increasing their own wealth and power. Complete self-interest.

Since the office of the President is simply for the puppet of the week, and hasn't had any real power since JFK, it doesn't matter.

I view Obama's executive orders on the scale of "small fry", intended to distract and divide on issues that were hardly important. Feel free to name one that affected a large number of Americans, or affected the status quo in any significant way. They are THEATRE.

On the other hand, important issues like the economy, foreign policy, constitutional freedoms, etc., pretty much went the same way under Obama as they did under Bush II, as an extension of Clinton and Bush I, and Reagan, and Carter, and Nixon and Johnson.

It's been a long, long time since the President had any real power.

But do you really think that if Hillary would have won, and even if the Dems had a majority in the House and/or Senate, that more gun control measures (or confiscation) would have happened? The puppet masters know the time isn't ripe for that, in my opinion, though it does seem to be getting closer.

In any event, when it happens, I don't believe the office of the President is where we'll find relief. Congress, the DoD, police forces, the Guard, etc., will all have to align for further restrictions. I freely admit, I'm not sure how that plays out, but Trump being "pro-gun" does not provide me with any greater sense of insulation from the gun-grabbers.

Ah, well if you think Trump is "off" the strings and acting on his own, I guess we'll just have to disagree about that.

Had Hillary won, we might be at war with the Russians by now, but as for any other differences, let's get the microscope out to see if we can find anything...

I view Obama's executive orders on the scale of "small fry", intended to distract and divide on issues that were hardly important. Feel free to name one that affected a large number of Americans, or affected the status quo in any significant way.


The administration's excesses in implementing Obamacare certain qualify. As does the insanity of the Obama EPA war on coal and other fossil fuels.

The president's primary job is to carry out and enforce the laws passed by Congress. The president isn't supposed to have any "real power" other than that enumerated in the Constitution:

Section 2.

The President shall be commander in chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the militia of the several states, when called into the actual service of the United States; he may require the opinion, in writing, of the principal officer in each of the executive departments, upon any subject relating to the duties of their respective offices, and he shall have power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States, except in cases of impeachment.

He shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers of the United States, whose appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by law: but the Congress may by law vest the appointment of such inferior officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the courts of law, or in the heads of departments.

The President shall have power to fill up all vacancies that may happen during the recess of the Senate, by granting commissions which shall expire at the end of their next session.
Obama and his administration, particularly Justice, the IRA, and HHS, went way beyond anything permitted in that language. Trump, to his credit thus far, has acted within his constitutional powers and deferred to the legal powers of Congress.

Obama redirected some funding for states "reinsurance" of Obamacare, if I recall, which in the overall scheme of things was very, very small compared to the overall impact of the law, which CONgress passed. Chicken feed.

Obama's war on coal, offshore drilling, and other environmental mandates had a negative impact on the economy, no doubt. But, in my opinion, small compared to his support of the impact of the ACA, his lack of economic planning, and his foreign policy disasters - all of which will have much greater and longer-lasting negative effects on our economy, versus closing down a handful of mines in West Virginia.

I would agree that Obama, the guy who was going to give us the most transparent administration "ever", failed big time, and his justice department was anything but. However, the extension of Patriot Act, and other laws passed by CONgress, were far greater in the magnitude of the erosion of our freedoms. Obama simply carried forward the policies of Bush II, and from that perspective it's my opinion he's just a puppet.

Read past the headlines, dig into the details, and the only differences between administrations are cosmetic, of little importance, and engineered to promote the illusion of a representative republic. Which, we ain't.

Oprah likes and supported Obama and Hillary. What else does one need to know?

3.) She’s donated to the Democratic National Committee and supported Democratic candidates in the past.

Winfrey has come out (https://www.opensecrets.org/news/2011/05/the-oprah-effect-winfreys-influence-extends-deep-into-politics/) and given big endorsements to major Democratic candidates. She donated $5,000 to the DNC in 1998 and another $10,000 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in 1996.

She officially endorsed former President Barack Obama in the 2008 election and also gave $2,300 to his campaign. Winfrey also supported Sen. Cory Booker in 2013 (http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2013/07/30/oprah-to-host-fundraiser-for-booker/) when he was making a run for the United States Senate, hosting a fundraiser for him.

Winfrey would later go on (http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/oprah-winfrey-endorses-hillary-clinton-article-1.2676149) to endorse former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. To her, Clinton’s candidacy was a “seminal moment for women.”

As I said, Oprah is too liberal for my liking, but she's a decent human being, so just on that one count alone she is far better for the job than who the Dems keep selecting as their leader.

Oprah should be given a bit more respect than a lot of you on both sides are giving. She is a black woman who rose from extreme poverty (and physical and sexual abuse, I think she was raped as a child) and without the help of any husband or man. She took her skills and likeability to build an empire, becoming the richest woman in the U.S. at one point, and I'm fairly sure at the time the only self-made woman on the list in the world (unless Martha Stewart also made the list at the same time).

Yes, I held her delving into Obama politics against her, but I also note that after only about 2 years in the White House (maybe not that long), she was suddenly gone from being an Obama supporter. I don't know what led to their fracture, but I'm hoping that Oprah learned a lesson about supporting someone just due to their skin color. I know she lost viewers, so that could've been part of the reason, but I think it was more as she could've quietly stayed in the picture but when she was gone, she was gone.

She's an admirable woman, and a smart woman. We could do a lot worse. What women that have been elected to Congress do you hold in higher regard? I like Nicki Haley, but can't really think of another off the top of my head that I respect.

In my weaker moments I go for overall political philosophies, rather than the generic criticisms typically lobbed by practitioners of partisan politics usually found in off-topic forums.

You described Obama's "executive orders". Good. Though I exaggerate, that's the "ceasarism" part. And don't think Obama wasn't "Oprahfied". "His spirit had permeated the masses, she said, and this spirit reminded people not only of who he was but also of what they could be."...

https://books.google.com/books?id=hBDVftJBKh4C&pg=PA216&lpg=PA216&dq=obama+oprahfied&source=bl&ots=vdRNhc95R4&sig=rZxH3kTXgB84sAzdmpEIPuQVnVk&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwirofnyxczYAhUMxoMKHZXAChIQ6AEIPDAE#v=on epage&q=obama%20oprahfied&f=false

There is little or no chance one would bother to run today. The process is a media circus, all about image and sound bites. How could a "deep intellectual thinker" hope to get elected when most voters don't even qualify as shallow thinkers? The process of winning votes is largely the same as that of winning customers for Pepsi vs. Coke.

Trump vs. Oprah? Makes you nostalgic for the good old days of just plain honest political hacks.

Oprah Winfrey "And they just have to die!"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1sWsn1Q8lk

Can this be put to bed? I'm no fan, but she was talking about individuals belonging to any ethnicity, including her own, for whom racism is so embedded due to many factors, that it can only be diminished by "dying out", rather than through those same individuals gaining perspective.

For the record we all agree with you, but this is nothing but the start. Hardball is something a very rare person will agree to, this far out there is at least 100 people being paid to unearth things that get directed to a sifting screen. The name gets floated everything is fed into a database that is unearthed.

I could care less about this person, it is just today's aim at a narrative here.
A glimmer of hope for those heads that are blowing up or soon to.

In the modern political market place of short attention spans and personality cults, you don't think that Oprah would be a formidable opponent? Especially against the current vacuum of potential Democratic primary candidates?not in the least. She would get the dem base but any candidate would. It'll come down to independents like it always does. She would be lucky to get 1% of the independents. Her hollyweird connection would end it for her.

Orca, er, Oprah sounds just like HIMMLER.
That hump is one sick nazi. Didn't we HANG the last ones who said that crap?
OH, wait, we would never find a strong enough rope.

Hey, hcap, what do you think HER physical would show? :pound::pound::pound:

At least she would not fall off a curb - she might CRUSH a few down to street

The disrespect you show is now at a despicable level. So sad.

Respect is earned by the person in question. Please feel free to provide solid and verifiable evidence that that my statements about Trump are in error, rather than directing a personal attack at the messenger who brings bad news.

By all accounts, undisputed by Trump or the administration, Trump spends many hours every day watching cable news. That is not an indication of a thinking, analytical person. It is an indication of a media junkie who is overly concerned about his own public image.

I don't understand the conversation going on. I'd far rather see Dems put up someone like Oprah than someone like Hillary. As I said, Oprah is too liberal for my liking, but she's a decent human being, so just on that one count alone she is far better for the job than who the Dems keep selecting as their leader.

Oprah should be given a bit more respect than a lot of you on both sides are giving. She is a black woman who rose from extreme poverty (and physical and sexual abuse, I think she was raped as a child) and without the help of any husband or man. She took her skills and likeability to build an empire, becoming the richest woman in the U.S. at one point, and I'm fairly sure at the time the only self-made woman on the list in the world (unless Martha Stewart also made the list at the same time).

Yes, I held her delving into Obama politics against her, but I also note that after only about 2 years in the White House (maybe not that long), she was suddenly gone from being an Obama supporter. I don't know what led to their fracture, but I'm hoping that Oprah learned a lesson about supporting someone just due to their skin color. I know she lost viewers, so that could've been part of the reason, but I think it was more as she could've quietly stayed in the picture but when she was gone, she was gone.

She's an admirable woman, and a smart woman. We could do a lot worse. What women that have been elected to Congress do you hold in higher regard? I like Nicki Haley, but can't really think of another off the top of my head that I respect.I have no problem with Oprah running for or being elected president. She's a lot closer to Trump then she is Hillary in terms of outlook and whatnot. Although the left will never admit this.

Hell, Trump once wanted her as his running mate...lol

So Seal calls out Oprah for being "part of the problem" on January 11th.

Seal is accused of sexual misconduct on January 16th.

As Arsenio Hall might say, things that make you go, "Hmmmm...."

Makes me think that Oprah is protected like the whales (so to speak), and perhaps her public image is not quite "accurate".

Despite making it very clear several times that she won't be running, Oprah is still earning the wrath of Trump, I guess for taking the center of attention off him for a few days.. :lol:

Liberals, if OW should decide to run, you should know about these three HUGE strikes against her:

1. She believes in God.
2. She prays to God
3. And she fully expects to hear back from God.

Would not all three disqualify her from further consideration?

I think that could put her in the same category as some recent mass shooters. Has she bought an assault rifle lately? :eek:
