The conservative founder and president of BOND Action in L.A. takes the liberal media maven to task for her comments that the president's critics should respect him more. From BOND's news release: "Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, Founder and President of BOND Action, is taking issue with Oprah Winfrey's recent comments on MSNBC's 'Morning Joe,' where she called on President Obama's critics to show him more respect and talked about how she believed in Obama's 'integrity.' Winfrey, who supported Obama's 2008 presidential bid, said that everybody complaining ought to try it [the job] for once. She claimed that the presidency '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.'"
The news release continues: "Rev. Peterson said, 'Barack Obama was elected president, not appointed king! Obama chose to run, and unfortunately for us, he was elected to be the leader of the free world. I don't recall Oprah calling on people to respect former President George W. Bush when he was viciously attacked and compared to Hitler for eight years. If Obama can't take the heat, he needs to get out of the White House!'"
More: "'Criticism of Obama doesn't mean that people are disrespecting the office, but it does mean that they don't respect the current occupant's socialist agenda,' said Rev. Peterson. 'The only authority Obama or any other president has is that enumerated by the Constitution. And despite what Oprah says, Barack Obama lacks integrity, and I believe he will go down as the worst and least respected one-term president in American history!'"
