Sharon Osbourne on President Obama: "He's a very decent man"

On Friday, Piers Morgan reunited with his former colleague and longtime friend, Sharon Osbourne, for a wide-ranging and spirited interview that touched upon everything from health and politics to entertainment and economics.

Joining the program for a face to face primetime exclusive, the wife of heavy metal singer-songwriter Ozzy Osbourne revealed the reasons behind why she didn't make it to the polls on election day:

"Oh, because I'm a lazy old tart," said the woman who holds dual American and British citizenship.

But even though Osbourne didn't vote for the president, he nonetheless has her endorsement:

"I think that he's a very decent man. He's a decent man, and he really does want things to change for the better. And he is very proud of this country, loves it, and wants it to be the best. And I think his intentions are only honorable."

Asked by her fellow Brit how the United States can revitalize it's struggling economy, the co-host of "The Talk" emphasized the need for providing work to those living on American soil:

"I think that you have got to stop importing, importing, and make jobs here. You've got to give people jobs here. And instead of importing everything, start, start businesses here," she told Morgan. "I don't think that certain companies should be able to go outside to get products made. They should be made, it has to be done here."

Check out the web extra video above, as Osbourne continues her evaluation of Obama, describing his tenure thus far in office as that of a "rookie."

    "Even though I really didn't like the Beatles as a whole, I still think John Lennon was the closest I could recognise close to me own thinking. Nobody tells me how to/ or when to, Think. Nor when it is my right to change my mind."

    The USA is a Market Place where business is done. Every Country is a community of people, and how to best feed and entertain those people. They 'The People' decide how that comes about. First they choose their leader, then depending what funds they have saved, they set about on how to get other investors to also invest., but you never tell them how to spend their profits!"
