    Talk me off the ledge……seems that no matter who is doing the interview they tend to prepackage our President, instead of allowing us to formulate our own observations. Michelle Obama is a equally remarkable person, and the two of them are a dynamic duo, but IMO Barbara diminishes the absolutely remarkable gifts of this man. I think, perhaps I am being over sensitive….but I am sick and tired of any and all attempts to create a manufactured image of our President. I am not much impressed with Barbara Walters from the snippets of the interview that I have seen. Guess I should wait for the full interview tonight before I pass judgement.

    Hope everyone had a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

      Hey Sue, get OFF that ledge right now!!!

      While I never expect much from Barbara Walters in the smartness department (is she Palin’s lost Aunty?), it is amazing that she ignores the evidence presented to her in her own interviews with the President – when he has been so warm, enaging and funny – and continues to cling to that tired old MSM line that he’s humorless, detached, cold, bla, bla – in other words, elitist!!!!! And saying to Michelle “so you didn’t care how the Democrats did?” (or whatever the exact words were) – what was that all about???

      She’s an airhead, nothing more, and really doesn’t deserve the chance to interview the first couple, ever!

        Thanks Chipsticks, I needed that little kick in the pants. I just sent an e-mail to our President and suggested he look up this website and Blackwaterdog’s if he ever needed a viral hug. You are both performing an invaluable service and as always I have much gratitude for your heartfelt efforts. It is said angels walk amongst us….you both are evidence of that.

    Love them. From the excerpts it appears these two interviewed well once again.
    Chipsticks, will you be posting the interview in it’s entirety once/if it becomes available? I don’t think I’ll be able to catch it on tv tonight.

      Hey Hhannahh, I’ll definitely post the full interview tomorrow as soon as it’s available, I won’t be able to see it tonight either so I’ll be frantically searching for it! Hopefully ABC will have the complete version on their site.

    Everyone seems to be in the race to see who can out diminish this President; And ABC seems ever so determined to outdo FOX-

    I don’t know who this young weasel interviewing Barbara Walters is, but they both certainly make for yet another ABC silly comedy half-hour –

    I pray that President & Mrs Obama consistent in their mature and honorable all-inclusive approach to things, will soon tire of humoring these pathetic juvenile/senile idiotic excuses for journalists who only seek to turn important access to the President & First Lady into cheap, twisted politically motivated digs and attacks and trivialized tabloid fodder-

    By the way, wasn’t Buddy the Bush dog?

      No, Buddy was the Clintons’ pooch.

      And I’m sorry but BaBa WaWa is a diva 4evah. Her pink suit–so outta style it’s in style! Her senior citizen unflappable-ness. “I have a cute dog but when I went home I told him I met another dog who’s cuter.” The grandma of celeb journalists who can say what she durn well pleases at this point.

    Just saw the whole thing…

    Barbara Walters sucks. What an absolute disgrace this shriveled up witch is…What a bloody waste of a healthy heart valve!

    Barbara Walters’ only mission was to ascertain if President Obama would run for a second term and only after she’d tried to demean and insult him in every way by throwing every contrived and made-up rightwing talking point at the President, punctuated with clips and a bunch of nothing quotes from sarah fucking palin.

    The President and First Lady were simply marvelous…ultimate class acts…

    Calm, relaxed, confident, positive, cheerful and positively brilliant, they refused to take the bait and simply turned Barbara Walters’ agenda-driven hack interview on its head with their grace, goodness, maturity, warmth, dignity and genuine ease and intelligence…

    America you know not what you have in this magnificent President and his spectacular wife…

    I could not believe the silly challenge from Barbara about Palin and her cookies to the school that was trying to limit sweets offered to students. This was a clear indication that Palin cares not one whit about this country and it’s people, and most certainly could care less about the fact that childhood obesity is on track to shorten the lifespan of this generation. I was sickened by the fact that Barbara isn’t spending her time challenging Palin over her stupidly perpetuating the causes of childhood obesity, rather than challenging Mrs. Obama over something that should be a concern for every American, government or not.

      And I don’t know why Barbara would expect the President to be so light-hearted and funny when he was just coming out of the Situation Room talking about the North Korea attack on South Korea, and still had more calls to make after her fluff piece. I certainly think that he should be serious when talking about potential international crises – even if he is sitting down to a silly interview. These media are just not living in the real world.

    WHY THE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE QUITTER FROM WASILLA…IF ONLY THE PREZ AND FIRST LADY WOULD HAVE SAID WHAT IS REALLY ON THEIR MINDS CONCERNING MS.PALIN….NOW THAT WOULD HAVE REALLY BEEN NEWS…MRS OBAMA WOULD AND WILL AT SOME POINT RIP HER A NEW ONE!!!! SHE IS Sooo JEALOUS OF THE PREZ AND 1ST LADY…IT SHOW…SHE CANT STOP TALKING ABOUT THEM…THE HATE IS ON HER LIKE A NEON SIGN…ITS PATHETIC!!!!
