It looks like Cornel West might be right when he said Oprah lacked "political courage," but its different. This is big business. It seems like Oprah has opted out of politics all together. She helped Obama get elected with her mighty force of influence, but she also suffered a backlash too. Many of the soccer mom set is comprised of Republicans. They didn't like when Oprah tried to have some courage! And, the word is it affected her network that was, at that time, in the sh***er. Now, its back and the word is Oprah won't do anything to mess that up!
Fast forward to present day politics.
Obama has recently rallied a bunch of people in the entertainment sect (what sect? Did I say sect?) and asked them to vouch for Obamacare aka the Affordable Care Act. Alicia Keys stepped up. Jennifer Hudson stepped up. I stepped up. Oprah? NO. She straight up said NO. Its seems that O said she didn't have time. We know that's not true! She was partying with Kanye and Diddy at Jimmy Iovine's house! Some folks - namely an insider named Ed Klein - says that Obama and them double-crossed Oprah. They were allegedly supposed to give her insider access and info for her OWN Network and they didn't. Also, they charge that she was disappointed that Big Obama didn't live up to the promises he made in 07-08! Sounds pretty serious to me! Ultimately, Oprah sent a rep on her behalf, but that means nothing!
