    ‘People don’t think you are trustworthy?’ WHAT?!!!
    I. DO. NOT. LIKE. BARBARA! In case you wondered.

      The look on her face may haunt me in my nightmares tonight, not that I ever have nightmares – but her face just might bring one on!

        Her questions seem so ….so.. so inappropriate to me. She hasn’t IMO grounded the interview enough before she starts asking her prying, rude questions. IOW, her questions MIGHT have seemed less intrusive IF you felt she had established some ‘rapport’ with them. Did I say I don’t like her?

    • November 29, 2013 at 10:13 pm

      An excruciating awful opening set of questions, but we shouldn’t be surprised – it’s Walters, after all!

    I truly do not think I can listen to or watch the awful barbara walters. I shall mute her every word and look away when she’s on the screen, or just fast forward through the recording until I get to the sweet two folks I came to see! WaWa’s already off to a bad start.

    Hello TOD, and a soon to be good night. I am now walking away from this interview. I cannot stand B—- Walters, and I don’t like her insulting questions. So wish FLOTUS could rip into her. My thanks to POTUS is that I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work on his campaigns. I now miss the excitement of it all. I have his back until the end. Have a blessed night all.

    ABC pushes this old goat out once a year who doesn’t have any more sense than the once a year groundhog Punxsutawney Phil. Ugghh.

  14. November 29, 2013 at 10:19 pm

    Thanks for the warning about the insufferable Barbara Walters. I was really looking forward to hearing from POTUS and FLOTUS but her instincts are disgustingly manipulative and self-serving. UGH.

    Based on input from those of you capable of even a nanosecond or three of that interview, it seemed only appropriate that I send this missive ….

    November 29, 2013 at 10:27 pm

    I’ll preface this by saying that we all know that the Obamas are ALWAYS excellent interviewees, and we are always happy to see them …….
    but I feel Walters has spoiled this interview. For *her* final WH interview it’s very mediocre. Even the connecting bits were poorly chosen IMO. Too much rehashing of info that we have seen over and over , and Walters adds NOTHING to their reuse. I can’t wait for a more *interesting* interviewer to do a better interview of the O’s.

    I can’t do it. First, Walters introduces her show by showing all the half-dead or dead people she’s interviewed (like Andrea Mitchell still clings to images of her interview with Fidel Castro, back in the 1800s). What have ya done lately, you weirdos? You give all women reporters a bad rep.

    Second … coquettish, Walters? On you? Not a good look.

    In fact, the word coquettish is even so antiquated I’m embarrassed to use it. Eek. Close your eyes.

    GOODBYE, Walters. You are a mere caricature of the caricature they once played of you on SNL, also back in the 1800s.

    Chips, you are right – this seems more like an interview ON Walters, or one on her history with presidents and First Ladies!

    November 29, 2013 at 10:31 pm

    The worst moment was Barbara cutting the First Lady off as FLOTUS was saying that the main point is that millions of people will get healthcare.

    I am not sure what the value of this is. What good is it to let barbara and upChuck have access? It’s not like anyone will give President Obama any credit for facing these jackals. Is there value in letting your enemies air their idiocy in public? maybe that’s it.

    I hope all of you read every word of the essay linked in this tweet (had mentioned it in the previous thread), ponder it, read it again, and share it with every person you know and urge them to do the same. Thank you.

    Putting Barbara aside, it is always a pleasure to see POTUS and FLOTUS together.

    What am I missing? Was the Obama “interview” only a 20 minute preview for the Walter career review? I am still listening, waiting to see when she will return to the O’s?

      November 29, 2013 at 10:51 pm

      Let me know if she return to the Obamas. I stop watching when she went to all that other stuff. And she had some dame nerve saying that the people don’t trust President Obama. I trust him more then I trust her.

      VC, she tricked us into watching a show about her past interviews!! She knew no one would have tuned in otherwise. I am so freaking mad. I hope the Obamas cut the interview short after the first stupid questions and she had to try to fill the rest of the hour.

    not sure i’ll watch the interview, but from the looks of it, barbara just wants to make sure her friends will still invite her on vacations:

    newt and wife # whatever, huffington, and assorted weirdos, together in europe.

    I’ve switched from ABC ‘s so-called Obama Interview exclusive to TLC’s “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.” Another mindless show that I would have never watched otherwise.

    What the HELL does Barbara Walters think she’s doing with that bait and switch crap?

    Hats off to POTUS and FLOTUS for not slapping Walters into another life. That woman got on my last nerves with her dumbass questions

    Walters is a very good spokesperson for the Washington “elite” who have contempt for Barack and Michele Obama because they’re “not like them”. People like her, and Arianna Huffington, who vacations on the French Riviera in the more expensive hotels and probably don’t even look at “the help”. What a snob. Walters comes out as a creepy woman who hasn’t been in the real world for a long, long time.

    Hopefully the Obamas got fed up of her crap and just left,, that’s why she had to fill more than half the show with her BW Bull Waste

    We just got back from dinner. We dvr’d 20/20. Now I know to fast forward thru all of BW’s talking and only listen to POTUS and FLOTUS. I hate how the msm so disrepects them.

    I just woke up from a long nap. I came here immediately to see what happened, and I am so glad that I missed it. I would have been unpleasant in my space yelling unkind words, and that is not fair to my space especially allowing Bar-Bar-War in it. I know President Obama and our lovely First Lady had to go up to the residence after this interview was tapped and have a nice mellow glass of wine after this stale dried up broom-rider left. What day was this recorded?

    However, it pleases me to see our faith TOD family taking her to task on her rude crap. It always makes me pause for a while and try to ask why these people feel that they can come to the point in their lives and sit with the most powerful man on the planet and then ask him shit. That just leaves me with….WTF? Sorry, TOD family. Sometimes, I just cannot take this crap from these old farts with no good intentions flowing from their actions.

    Thank for the heads up, TOD. Now back to catching up on the real intelligent news about our brilliant, POTUS and FLOTUS. I really do have an answer for all of this, but I already know that our TOD family know that answer. What a way to go out into her retirement on such an ugly note. However, President Obama and First Lady, Michelle Obama are still in the White House and President Obama is still President of the United States. And Bar-bar- will surely not be remembered nicely by the million of young people who helped to put POB in the Oval Office. And those of us who are older sure as hell know which ones to believe tonight, our beloved President, Barack Obama. That will always be the history of a fine, polite, brilliant, loving, caring, compassionate, and PATIENT man. Wow, we are so blessed.HZ
