I am sending a comment regarding the expression and or opinion of this person who feels that Oprah Winfrey is detroying this country.

Oprah may have a lot of pull or influence in reaching the people of this country, whether black or white.

It is nor have it ever been an influence to get people to follow her, her influence is not a cult, it is just a option to become better.

Don't get her as Oprah twisted, she is prominent and powerful, she understands her influence in this world and doesn't lead people astray. Don't allow your attitude with Oprah or Obama to be a definition as to what Obama will do or can do for this country.

It is not that She stood behind his campaign for any recognition, nor to make him president, it was solely on the good merits that she knew and some she felt he possessed.

He has in a short time done things that previous presifents couldn't. Especially with the fact that he as a man knew that the soldiers were sent to war for no apparent reason but to prove a point to the other country and soldiers, protecting the reputation of Bush, instead of our country.

Oprah is a truthful and inspiring woman, don't knock her down because she can influence others, people need to give her the respect she has earned.

Stop judging her by what you think you know and go by what you do know regarding her as a person.

Don't become someone that tries to ruin someone because of who they are and the ill-feelings that others may have.

Recognize the poer and accept the gifts that certain people can offer.
