TV Guide Gushes: 'Will Michelle
Obama Be the Next Oprah?'

Newsbusters, by Tim Graham

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/1/2012 8:18:45 AM

Even if Obama loses next week, the media goo machine will keep cranking away. The new TV Guide is already speculating: “Will Michelle Obama Be the Next Oprah?” Writer Stephen Battaglio imagines what a star she could become (if her husband loses). She could be bigger than Oprah? “Michelle Obama is such an appealing TV presence that if she and her husband find themselves moving out of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, she’ll have the opportunity to make the transition from high-profile engaging talk-show guest to high-profile talk-show host – arguably the biggest ever in terms of recognition.”

Michelle Obama is unlikely to replace Oprah. Oprah has shown a broad grasp of women's interests and issues, not to mention the fact that she also knows how to successfully run a large business. But Michelle still has lots of opportunities. She would be a perfect addition to The View.

Not going to happen. That would require a regular work schedule - 5 days a week - and neither of them have had that kind of work, day in day out, like the rest of us peons. They are elites and don't ever have to lift a finger the rest of their lives.

From your mouth to God's ear. I'm all for her getting her first real job, and clocking in like the rest of us. Two things will happen. First, she'll find out it's work, and she won't like it. Second, when she exposes her self-righteous, self-indulgent self at the same hour every single day, people will turn her off in droves. In TV, the viewers vote and the advertisers follow. Welcome to the real, world, FLOTUS. Let's see if you can make the grade.

It is what she has been working on for the past four years. She loves the limelight and can't stand the idea that Barry is more important. The MSM has been telling us how much we love her. We don't. Once Barry Hussain is out of office, she will be too. LOL! She actually believes the hype. That is really dumb.

Moochelle is a working Mother? Where does she work and what does she do that doesn't require an army of assistants? She has secretaries to the secretaries for her wardrobe, her schedule and her makeup and her hair. Still she comes out of the White House looking like she is a washer woman unless it is a 5 star event. Imagine a show where someone doesn't "cooperate" and watch those witchy eyebrows go into their pointy scowl mode. Boy, that will keep the crowd of women happy.

Mooch is the next Oprah only in the sense that she'll be able to financially run a network into the ground. She can get great advice from Zero in that regard, given his taxpayer-funded investment record of complete failure.

Once they leave the WH in January, Mooch will be in about as much demand as a stale technicolor pastel broken umbrella, which coincidentally is what her wardrobe resembles.

TV Guide is offering free publicity for The Won and his Wookie this week. Not only did they have the full page article "Will Michelle Be the Next Oprah?" but also a full page of what The Won and Mooch watch on the tube. Gushing and swooning from the authors. Made me want to cancel my subscription and then puke.

In spite of what we may think of Orca, one has to give her credit.
She worked very, very hard to get where she got.
Wookie has neither the will nor the focus to make that kind of 'investment'. She prefers to be carried around on sedan chairs while people ooh and ah at her mere existence.

Well, for one thing Oprah hasn't felt the need to lecture us on our eating habits. Ms. Winfrey has a heart (and a brain) as soft as warm parrafin. She doesn't think too clearly but she does do empathy well. What James Burnham once wrote about Eleanor Roosevelt (quoted in a 1962 column by WFB) could apply to Oprah: "Over whatever subject, plan, or issue Mrs. Roosevelt touches, she spreads a squidlike ink of directionless feeling. All distinctions are blurred, all analysis fouled, and in the murk clear thought is forever impossible."

The FLOTUS is empathetically and emotionally as hard as plate glass, although her thinking unit is no more discerning than Oprah's--perhaps less so. (Oprah has, after all, earned a billion dollars, all by herself.) I doubt MO could convincingly pull off caring about anything that doesn't directly benefit her. She is one whose celebrity status won't springboard her into a career of interacting with others outside her limited social circles. Nor will she ever be able to demonstrate any kind of intellectual celerity, so obviously lacking (as she does) the cranial wattage. The very last thing most television viewers want to see is her angry, accusatory eyes staring back at them through the screen. Ugh.

I certainly won't watch her, but daytime television is exactly where I think Mizzuz Stinky will go after she's turned out of our White House. She's already flopped as a lawyer and a hospital administrator. She's perfect for mindless daytime television--unless Sanford and Son is brought back and she co-stars as Aunt Esther.

Michelle would not be able to run a talk show because she only likes to talk about herself. Hu6 she could join the slobberfest at The View. The other egos would grow tired of her after awhile.

An awful 146-word term paper littered with grammatical errors that is barely even readable has become a potent visual symbol of the University of North Carolina´s fake classes scandal. The one-paragraph essay on civil rights icon Rosa Parks earned an A- and was exposed by former UNC professor Mary Willingham, who spent ten-years teaching UNC´s athletes before she turned whistleblower on alleged classroom corruption.

WASHINGTON— The National Archives is set to release 2,500 pages of documents from former President Bill Clinton´s White House, including records from two aides, the ex-president´s farewell address and other topics. Documents released since February have covered the Clinton administration´s unsuccessful health care overhaul plan, Republicans´ sweeping victories during the 1994 midterm elections and other issues. The papers being released Friday were to include records from Clinton speechwriter Michael Waldman and domestic policy adviser Ira Magaziner and documents from Clinton´s farewell address to the nation. Other topics include Native American policy and Serbia. The records are being closely scrutinized by

Politico Buries Senator Leland

The world of political news was captivated by Thursday’s report of the arrest for gun trafficking of a famously anti-gun California state senator. Yet while most other news outlets reported the incident, Politico, an outlet that supposedly leads the nation in political news, didn´t post a single story on the incident the day the news broke. This is the same Politico that managed to publish 90 separate stories on the Herman Cain sexual harassment scandal when it broke – within six days. California State Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) made a name for himself by becoming one of the most

They spoke privately for nearly an hour. When they emerged from the meeting, the President and the Vatican had slightly different takes on the tenor of their discussions, especially when

If President Obama opened the International New York Times when he woke up at the US Ambassador residence Thursday morning in Rome, he would have been greeted by a full-page ad from the dissident "Catholics for Choice" telling him to ignore the Pope on questions of sexual morality. In what must have been a remarkably expensive full-page ad, "Catholics for Choice" asserts that Pope Francis, whom the President was scheduled to meet Thursday at the Vatican, "seems like a very nice man..." The group says he is "our spiritual leader but not our political leader." The ad charges that the

A Supreme Court hearing that aired all sorts of ways someone might try to assassinate the president did not bode well Wednesday for a group of protesters suing two Secret Service agents for allegedly mistreating them at a 2004 appearance of President George W. Bush. Several justices seemed concerned about whether the free speech rights of anti-Bush protesters in Jacksonville, Ore., had been violated. They were kept farther away from the president than another group that supported him, and there is no allegation that the demonstrators meant the president any harm. But the court gave no indication that it would let

AUSTIN, Texas— A federal appeals court on Thursday upheld Texas´ tough new abortion restrictions that shuttered many of the abortions clinics in the state. A panel of judges at the New Orleans-based 5th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a lower court judge who said the rules violate the U.S. Constitution and served no medical purpose. In its opinion, the appeals court said the law "on its face does not impose an undue burden on the life and health of a woman." Texas lawmakers last year passed some of the toughest restrictions in the U.S. on when, where and how women

A newly-released report has revealed that two of Governor Chris Christie´s aides were romantically involved leading up to last year´s traffic closures. Bridget Anne Kelly, who infamously sent an email saying ´time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee´, was reportedly dating Christie´s former campaign manager Bill Stepien throughout much of his re-election race. The report, released today by a law firm Christie hired to investigate the scandal, said that the two had been a couple for months but had called things off a month before the George Washington Bridge lane closures. Stepien, 36, worked as the Republican governor´s deputy

VATICAN CITY- U.S. President Barack Obama heard the Catholic Church´s concerns over his health care plan while on a visit to the Vatican on Thursday, but drew a cheerful response from Pope Francis when inviting him to visit Washington. The president appeared at ease and joked during the parts of his meeting with the pope that were open to a few reporters, but a brief Vatican statement issued later indicated that Obama´s private talks there had a more serious side. The statement said Obama, who was accompanied by Secretary of State John Kerry, was told of the Vatican´s concern about

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

Lerner was in charge during the IRS´ inappropriate targeting of conservative, patriot and tea party groups. IRS officials have failed to comply with the subpoena and today during a hearing on Capitol Hill, Issa threatened IRS Commissioner John A. Koskinen, one of only two political appointees at the agency, with contempt. "Unfortunately you´ve been more concerned with managing political fallout than complying with this Committee," Issa said, urging Koskinen to comply or "potentially be held in

Okay, THAT was certainly embarrassing. At the end of a joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Netherlands on Tuesday, the applause for Barack Obama came from a grand total of one guy. One. After thanking the crowd twice for suffering through his boring, standard worn-out spiel, Obama looked around the room, expecting the usual fanfare and applause he receives from his loyal followers back home. It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap. Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

Nearly six in 10 people disapprove of President Obama´s job performance in a new poll by the Associated Press, the highest rating recorded by the newswire. According to the AP-GFK survey released Wednesday, 59 percent disapprove of Obama´s job performance while 41 percent approve. A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s. A CBS News poll Tuesday showed 50 percent disapproval, while Gallup has his disapproval at 52 percent. In the AP poll,

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.

One by one, the myths of the Affordable Care Act have been revealed. When the curtain on open enrollment falls on March 31, the last remaining big myth of ObamaCare will be fully exposed: The individual mandate has failed. After a last-ditch effort with President Obama himself encouraging "young invincibles" to sign up before the deadline, the administration is scrambling to boost enrollment. On Tuesday, the White House announced that people who applied for coverage on the federal health-insurance exchange will have until mid-April to finish the paperwork. The mandate was supposed to be the administration´s magical elixir for the assorted shortcomings

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable. The reformers´ success in providing

One is a world leader who has been praised for his humility and outlook on the world. The other is an American president, once the international superstar of the political stage. So it is no surprise that President Barack Obama has travelled to the Vatican in Rome possibly to get some tips from the popular Pope Francis who now even has own weekly glossy magazine dedicated to him. As he sat down with the Pontiff at the Vatican this morning, Obama called himself a ´great admirer´ of the pope. Their historic first meeting comes as Obama´s administration and the church
