Oprah Supports Obama, Rolls Like McCain

8/25/2008 10:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oprah WinfreyIt's official...Oprah is going to the Democratic Convention -- or at least she'll be in the same city -- and she will not be staying at a Holiday Inn.

O is shelling out $50,000 to rent a house in a Denver 'burb, according to the Rocky Mountain News. That's even a lot for the Hamptons -- but Denver, Colo?

Her reps are still mum on whether she'll appear on the floor, but unless she's in a contest with McCain on racking up the most homes, it seems pretty clear.

I lost every ounce of respect I had for Oprah when she decided to endorse the inexperienced Black Man instead of the qualified White Woman. I am so appalled that even women were afraid to put a woman in the White House opting for the slick, smooth talking candidate. He's been dressed up, rehearsed, polished and all wrapped up in a neat little package that has no concept of how to run the country. Color shouldn't matter, experience does, but not to people like Oprah who are so anxious to put a black man in as president they don't even stop to consider reality. All we can hope for now is that McCain gets in, otherwise, Heaven help us.

Angry Democrat 'Sky Blu' from LMFAO attack GOP Romney on Purpose .    

Michael Moore's student Madonna has Lied for political reasons about fascsim. The term fascism came about from the nazi party in 1930's germant called the 'National Socialist German Workers Party'. Madonna has to take a good look at who she hangs around before attacking others (like mccain)

The Michael Moore episodes:
Hugo Chavez called catholics 'liars and perverts' and stated that 'jews owns all thw world's wealth' in 2006, along with dictatoral control over his nation.
Michael Moore supported Hugo Chavez ( Hugo Chavez is a Violent Dictator and a Fascist , by everyone's standards).
Michael Moore was labeled the 'Liberal Fascist' by a New York paper (2004-2005).
About Hillary:
"Over the past two months, the actions and words of Hillary Clinton have gone from being merely disappointing to downright disgusting." Michael Moore says ,
Michael Moore Never spoke for the majority , only the very small socialist Elite . Michael Moore has admitted to being a Marxist in his last film. Michael Moore is a Very Rich man , because of his propaganda films.

The area in Denver where Oprah will likely be staying is often listed as one of the Top 10 wealthiest areas in the nation with a median house value of over $1 million. It is not surprising at all that she would be spending that money to rent a home in that area. Denver is not some po-dunk town.

You guys are so quick to pull the race card. Every single time there is a story on this site regarding a black celebrity, racisim, jealosuy and hate rears its ugly head. To you racist who says Oprah is supporting Obama due to his race are delusional. I'm assuming Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez, Tom Cruise and all the other white celebrities are voting for him because he is black?

You fools who hate Oprah because she is rich, I want you to pick up the dictionary and look up the following words, I'm sure they apply to you:

Jealousy and Hate

I think Oprah's a great American. This is a woman who overcame extreme poverty, sexual abuse, teen pregnancy, obesity, illegitimacy, and drugs to become the generous person in the history of show business. Not only has she personally given over $300 million of her OWN hard earned money to charity for causes as diverse as South African education and rebuilding New Orleans, but she used her influence to get Pontiac to give nearly ten million worth of cars to her fans, and she's raised and additional $50 million through her Angel Network. I hope to see more celebrities following the wonderful example of Oprah and Angelina Jolie, I thank Oprah for getting my family and I excited about Obama. The fact that Oprah is supporting a man who will raise the taxes on billionaires like Oprah by MILLIONS and MILLIONS of dollars in order to pay for universal health care proves Oprah cares more about society than she does about herself. And for those who say she's supporting him because he's black, I make two points: A) Oprah supported Obama long before the black community jumped on the band wagon B) Millions of white people are supporting McCain because unlike Obama, he's NOT black Obama is clearly the better candidate for the average American, and is by far the most intelligent person to run for president in decades as evidence by his brilliant oratory skills, position as the head of the Harvard Law Review, and the brilliant judgement in predicting the hazards of invading Iraq.

#49, Obama didn't get where he is on Oprah's endorsement alone. There were a whole lot of white people who chose the unqualified black man over the qualified white woman. So get over it!

Finch,

I loved your comment, it hit dead on. Unfortunately, racsim will not allow some people to think rationally. Racsim promotes anger and hate. Most democrats who are now supporting McCain can't stomach voting for a black man. Their racist roots are buried deep within their souls, forever.

I hope none of these racsist bloggers have children, if they do, god bless their souls.

TO ALL OF YOU OSAMA OBAMA WORSHIPPERS ALL I CAN SAY IS ENJOY THE KOOL-AID (REMEMBER JIM JONES) HIS FOLLOWERS NEVER WANTED TO SEE HIS TRUE SIDE EITHER. IT'S NOT SO MUCH ABOUT HIS RACE AS IT IS HIS MUSLIM AND TERRORIST TIES AND I KNOW ALL YOU BLIND WORSHIPPERS WILL SAY IT'S NOT TRUE BUT DO THE RESEARCH. AS FOR ALL THE CELBRITIES YOU NAMED THEY ARE ALL OPRAH WORSHIPPERS TOO. HELLO IT'S HOLLYWOOD YOU DON'T REALLY THINK THEY HAVE AN ORIGINAL THOUGHT IN THEIR HEAD DO YOU?

Leave Oprah alone. The amount of $ she donates to charity may only be a fraction of her income, but what percentage of your income (welfare..lol) do you donate to charity. She spends plenty of time and money on good causes. If she doesn't want to adopt kids or conform to your narrow ideas of how she should live her life then that is A-OK. Let her buy $10,000 handbags, the woman has worked hard enough to earn it.

Oprah donates far more than just a fraction of her income. She's given OVER THREE HUNDRED MILLION of her OWN HARD EARNED money to charity, in addition to the HALF A BILLION she's given to the U.S. government in taxes over the decades. No one else in the history of show business has even come close to giving as much personal wealth to charity as Oprah has according to Business Week, and Oprah's philanthropy is all the more impressive because she came from every disadvantage you can think of. Black, female, overweight, illegitimate, poor, sexually abused. And while it's true that Oprah became rich largley because of the support of white America, White America only became rich because of CENTURIES of FREE slave labour by the ancestors of Oprah and other African Americans. That gave America an enormous competetive edge and head start over countries with more productive workers like Japan.

As for Obama, he's by FAR the most qualified person to run for president. He's far smarter than Hillary. Obama was president of the Harvard Law Review meanwhile Hillary flunked the bar exam. Obama was also the only leading candidate smart enough to oppose invading Iraq. The only reason people assume he's less qualified is because he's BLACK, but those of us who are intelligent enough to look beyond our prejudice (notice Obama gets the educated vote) can see that not only would he be one of the most intelligent presidents America has ever had, but the fact that he has an exotic background would do wonders to repair America's relations with the Arab world. He's also wildly populary in Europe, another area America will have to repair relations with if it wants to maintain its status as the world's sole superpower. It's too bad so many racist bloggers are just too STUPID to realize that.
