Despite the whining from the left about the Bush tax rates staying put, President Barack Obama is still able to count on the support of one of his most important endorsers, Oprah Winfrey.

Yes, Lady O is sticking by her man. She has openly pledged her continued support for the prez in his re-election bid, which is a mere two years away.

The public hardly needs reminding that back during Obama’s 2008 campaign, Oprah backed him every step of the way.

Given her gargantuan endorsement clout and the fact that she’s on the verge of launching her own personal cable network, which of course is named after her, Oprah’s role as campaign spokesperson is no doubt sending thrills up many a lefty leg.

“I think that no one understands until you've been in that seat the enormous pressure to please and satisfy everybody,” Winfrey recently told Parade Magazine.

Putting the gobs of golf outings aside, she chastised Obama’s critics for not being more thankful for the president’s hard work.

Guess we should be grateful that in two agonizingly long years he managed to catapult us to a 21.4 percent federal spending increase, stick us with a $1.2 trillion deficit and help us ring our debt up to an almost $14 trillion level.

“I think instead of being grateful for where we are and what he has done, we've forgotten that we were on the brink of a depression when he took over this office,” Oprah said.

She insisted that if not for Obama “we could’ve had bread lines.”

Oh, Oprah. Breadlines are so 1930s.

We don’t have breadlines today, but we’ve got plenty of food stamp lines, jobless lines, and foreclosure lines.
