So it is uttered, so it shall be done:

Oprah called on President Obama’s critics on Friday to “show some level of respect.”

“I feel that everybody has a learning curve, and I feel that the reason why I was willing to step out for him was because I believed in his integrity and I believed in his heart,” the influential TV host said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” in Chicago.

Of the negative mood of the country, Oprah added, “I think everybody complaining ought to try it for once.”

She said the presidency is a position that “holds a sense of authority and governance over us all,” and that “even if you’re not in support of his policies, there needs to be a certain level of respect.”

Oprah will have to pardon the snickers as she now asks for patience with a “learning curve” for somebody she once referred to as “the one.” If you’re going to sell somebody as capable of walking on water, don’t demand more respect from the people are simply wondering why that same person suddenly needs swimming lessons.

Oprah has such a tight kinship with Obama because a lot of people voted for him for the same reason they go see Oprah’s show: To get stuff for free.

Maybe inviting people of all political stripes to a pajama summit at the White House would help patch things up.

Because of Oprah’s concern, NORAD’s alert status is now at DEFCON 1 due to the imminent threat of an incoming Maya Angelou poem.
