WASHINGTON — Honoring the legacy of John F. Kennedy, President Barack Obama laid a wreath at the assassinated president's gravesite as a nation remembers that terrible day in Dallas a half-century ago Friday. Obama also recognized a group of distinguished Americans — including Bill Clinton and Oprah Winfrey — with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, an award created by Kennedy.

To be clear, is this the same Oprah Winfrey who recently said old, white people need to die before racism disappears? If so, I can think of one old black woman named Oprah who should check out too.

Oprah and Bill Clinton? Really? Obama has done nothing more than politicize and trivialize the bestowment of this once-cherished award. Other than being probably the richest black woman in the world who calls America a racist country, what has she done compared to so many others who give their time and wealth freely and anonymously without all the media hoopla? And Bill Clinton? For what? Getting O re-elected? What has Clinton done to deserve this award? Disgusting what Obama has done to this award.

JFK and Obama. Two more diametrically opposed Presidnent's we shall never see. JFK said "Ask not what your country can do for you, but rather what you can do for your country", wheras the entire Obama presidency is contigent upon voters who want to squeeze this country for every dime they can get for free while Obama enocurages and appeases them. Sad.

"Oprah Winfrey who recently said old, white people need to die before racism disappears.".. Sorry Oprah, we need to see the race-baiiing activists die if we ever want to see an end to racism. People like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have done far mor to keep racism alive and well then any old white person has ever done. Their entire existence depends on racism.
