Posted on 11/17/2009 8:59:44 AM PST by Federalist Patriot

Here is video in two parts of Gov. Sarah Palin being interviewed by Barbara Walters for Good Morning America.

Walters asked Palin if she wants to be President. Palin said that is "not on my radar screen right now." She said she has been receiving many offers, but would not say if she has been offered a talk show. She did say she has been offered at reality show, which she turned down.

In the video, Palin also rates Barack Obama on a Scale of 1 to 10; Says Obama was not yet deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize; and slams Newsweek for a cover of her on the magazine. . . (VIDEO)

“Four” would be about right on a scale of 1-4.

WTH are people still tap dancing about. Especially conservatives.

He’s a fool. And incompetent. at best.
A fool and malevolent at worst.

re: Steve Schmidt

No damn wonder McCain lost the election. Sarah handled questions about him and his quotes about her very well.

I would hope his fat butt would be drummed out the GOP in an unceremonious manner as possible.

I can't recall a single issue that has so absolutely divided the GOP in my lifetime. As a rule I am against litmus tests. But Sarah has become such a canary in the mine that I am forced to make an exception in her case! Hearing someone is not backing her is all I need to know about them, they're out as far as I'm concerned.

I don't think we've seen a battle as nasty as the one we are about witness as Sarah's detractors, Left and Right, set about to destroy her. It's going to be a bloodbath. My money is on SarahCudda!

She gave Obama a 4 because she’s a naturally generous woman.

My money’s on Sarah too, I think the truth often takes a beating in America but it has a way of coming out on top. To her detractors: don’t be such pussies, name your candidate. I’ve seen Hunter mentioned a lot. I respect that. Same with Bachmann. It just seems like a lot of Sarah’s detractors never have an alternative. And please none of this “too soon” stuff. In 1.5 years the full campaign will be under way, that will come very quick.

Palin said that is "not on my radar screen right now."

Same exact, carefully-phrased answer she gave Oprah---the key words in both instances are RIGHT NOW.

I was actually thinking about this, this very morning. If you consider every action boyHitler has taken since elected, he should have gotten at least one thing correct just by accident.

This leaves only one possibility, he is screwing this great nation on purpose.

Well, there are some things you can say that he could have been worse. He stayed in Iraq and Afghanistan instead of leaving immediately. He's using liberal Wall Streeters to screw us instead of marxist revolutionaries.

Obama could have been worse, but he is constrained to some extent and has not gone full out Marxist. But it is clear he wants to, and is moving that way much faster than most people expected.

I'd have given him a 2, and compared him to Chavez. 1 would be Castro or Lenin, someone who makes no pretense of following the democratic process. He and Chavez are working to rid themselves of that constraint, but they are not there yet. Chavez is getting there.

Since they awarded it to him a week into his presidency, I'd have to say that it was tremendously condescending.

“Disappointed Sarah gave that woman an interview.”

Why be disappointed? Sarah Palin has to show ALL Americans what she is made of, not just the ones that adore her already. Indpendents vote, blue dog Democrats vote, not just conservatives. She had to shake the image that the lame stream media created about her.

Thanks, I did not get to see this.

Ironic that Barbara would be "offended" by the word "Bull-crap", coming from a woman who had a torrid love affair with a married man. Amazing hypocrisy.

I see your point, but I Sarah Palin isn’t tough enough to confront the harpies in the media, perhaps she might not be strong enough to lead.

“Peter Schiff gives Obama a F

A 4 on a 10 point scale = 40%. I don’t know of a single grading scale in the country where that doesn’t easily merit an F grade. Most grading scales award an F for anyone below a 65 or 60%, so in my book the take-home message from this rating is that Obama doesn’t even come close to a passing grade as President. Moreover, you could double his score and he still would fall below the performance of a truly great president such as Ronald Reagan.

Mine too. If Sarah is as good as I think she is, she will thoroughly stomp her detractors, left and right. She has Truth on her side, all her enemies have is a vile disgusting cauldron of falsity.

I’m not saying SHE isn’t tough enough...I’m saying I’m disappointed that she would even give them the time of day when the WH invites everyone else except FOX. Maybe I march to my own drummer but I wouldn’t have done it. She should have given the interview to Megan Kelly or to Major Garrett. It’s the same with the WH giving FOX an interview this evening along with the other networks. I will have to wait and hear what Rush says about it because I wouldn’t give this guy the satisfaction of sitting for only the ten minutes alloted to hear ANYTHING he has to say. Hope Major gives him tough questions and not softballs.

On the scale of 1 to 10.."4" is an interesting number to throw around. I'd say it's a less than average approval coming from our Sarah.

The MSM seems to be very interested in steering her toward a ‘talk show’ and away from the White House. Hmmmm...

Yeah, that and those fools she sometimes shares air time with on “The View!” There certainly is a lot worse flying out of those mouths!

Well, Sarah has demonstrated she can handle these hags with ease, whether it be Oprah or Walters. However, they are interested in the gossip and the more personal aspects of her book. Oprah didn't broach policies, though Walters explored policies a bit.  They were both more concerned about the male-whore Levi and Couric's interview than they were with Sarah's policies.

I know why they keep asking the personal questions, of course: they are a tool to use against Palin.  Nevertheless, Sarah came across as a genuine and smart woman.
