Obamas to appear on Oprah

Washington (CNN) – The President and Mrs. Obama will sit down with Oprah Winfrey for a taping of her talk show April 27th, a White House source confirmed to CNN.

This is the final season for Oprah's popular syndicated show, which she has hosted for 25 years. She famously endorsed then-Senator Obama in his bid for president in 2007 on CNN's "Larry King Live." That was the first time the talk show queen inserted herself into a presidential race. Winfrey went on to campaign for Obama and was very visible at his election night victory rally in Chicago's Grant Park.

    Oprah not support Obama? Get outta here. Here we go again with making up news as we go along. CNN, you guys are just like Wall St. speculators. Anyway, I'm anxious to hear the republican comdenation from the right.

    I wonder if Oprah will endorse Boss Hogg, Michelle Bachmann, Mittens, Trump, or any of the other bigots, baggers and birthers.

    Undoubtedly there will be comments saying he should be curing cancer instead of spending an hour going on Oprah's show. Much like the outrage over the 7 minutes he spent filling out a NCAA college tournament bracket. But come on, did we all forget how much vacation Bush took? seriously, he took like 5 weeks off at a time to go to his ranch in Texas. Pick your battles, being upset about this is petty.

    Oprah did America a real disservice when she bent over backwards to endorse 'The One". She helped stick America with a corrupt, unqualified, radical, racist President, who is destroying America. I guess Oprah and the Obamas are still buddies, from their years and years in Jeremiah Wright's anti-America, racist church !!!

    Oh good! This should solve the deficit problem, balance the budget and pay off the National debt. Good plan.

    Even Oprah can't escape the fact that Obama has been a miserable FAILURE. It was bad enough she endorsed this buffoon in 2008. But people will forgive her ONE MISTAKE. If she did it again, she can kiss her business empire good bye.

    I think being on talk shows should be for ex-presidents and presidential hopefuls, and not incumbent Presidents and I don't care who the president is
