"I don't think about Sarah Palin," President Barack Obama tells Barbara Walters in a White House interview.
Obama said he is concentrating on being "the best possible president" rather than the 2012 election, ABC News said in a preview of the conversation.
"Obviously Sarah Palin has a strong base of support in the Republican Party, and I respect those skills," he said. "But I spend most of my time right now on how I can be the best possible president. And my attitude has always been from the day I started this job that if I do a good job and if I'm delivering for the American people the politics will take care of itself."
The interview, which included first lady Michelle Obama, ranged from the strife between North and South Korea to airport screening, the midterm elections, the economy, and Thanksgiving traditions.
Michelle Obama said it's fine to eat what you want on Thanksgiving.
"Don't worry about how much you eat. Just enjoy it," she said. "This is the time. Have pie."
"A Barbara Walters Special: A Thanksgiving Visit with President and Mrs. Obama," is to air Friday at 10 p.m. EST.
Do you hear that? We have "permission" from Empress Michelle to have a hearty Thanksgiving repast. That sure takes a weight off my mind...
He’s more concerned about Hillary right now.
The problem for him is that she thinks about him.
LOL, we remember the time when Obama claimed he was not aware of the Tea Party long after it had sprung up all over the nation ... and we know damn well he fears Sarah Palin as have all the Marxists ever since she broke on the national scene.
That room service waiter’s name was “Fabrice?” You can’t make this sh*t up!!
Obama to busy thinking about his ‘boys’ like Reggie Love or Kal Penn...
You lie! We know you watch Fox and she has been unavoidable.
The President THINKs?... shezzam.. who knew..
Palin has Obama shaking like a dog $hitting razor blades. you can tell by the avalanche of cocern trolls who assault every Palin thread posted on Free Republic.
Two years in and he is still trying? This is not a position where on the job training works!
Yeah, sure, well we need some relief from his trying to be the best possible president. Take him off his meds.
Impeach him, do something Congress!!!
The Waldorf-Astoria bill Michelle Obama rang up was ROOM SERVICE. She evidentally didn’t want to mingle with the common people. She represents the epitomy of hypocracy in her words and actions.
Sure he doesn’t that is why during the pardoning of the turkey today he referanced “DWTS”?And who made an appernce last night on “DWTS”? None othert than Bristol’s Mom.
And he has never blamed Bush for anything.
And he takes full responsibility for the lousy economy.
remember when Hildabeast was indifferent to Monica Lewinsky... even felt sorry for her ...
when in fact... any woman would be terrorized or totally pissed that her husband strayed ... even one who should have been used to it like Hildabeast...
Conclusion: Obambi is sh*tting his skiivies over the prospect of running against ANY candidate in 2012....
Of course the kenyan doesn’t “think about Palin”! She’s a girl! He hates girls!
You are doing a great job and yes, the politics will take care of itself.
A community agitator has no training in governing, only in stirring people up. 0bama is a one-trick puppie.
Oh, let me get down on my knees and thank profusely the First Wookiee for permission to eat what I want, if only for one day!
Puppies are cute. Obamolester is anything but.
Just wanted to clear that up.
Barry doesn’t think about anyone , but, himself.
Ok Reggie and Wilson , his basketball .
Not the war in Afghanistan, the economy, North Korea , Iran, etc
If you observe the family dynamics-he’s very strained and cold in public towards his daughters and wife , like they’re strangers.
And the dog might as well be a a potted plant.
Last year, the White House bizarrely refused to release their Thanksgiving menu to the media.
Most presidents would make it public days in advance.
This transparent White House, after media pressure , finally released it ..
on Thanksgiving Day.

Last year on SportsCenter the guys were discussing Thanksgiving menus.
I can’t remember which black commentator said it, but, he said that in the black community
if you don’t have ham and macaroni and cheese on your menu it’s considered an insult to your guests.
And you never , ever serve pumpkin pie, only sweet potato.
The white guys on the panel had never heard this before nor had I.
They are also untrained, oblivious to what's going on around them, and they make messes. ( ^8 }
“Who is the someone who gives up the piece of the pie?”
I have to admit that she and her husband will have to pay more taxes if his proposal to raise taxes on the top wage earners makes it through Congress. So I guess she will be giving up a piece of the pie to help out, albeit a quite small piece.
As to the late night order at the Waldorf-Astoria in 2008, well I can’t criticize her for living like a millionaire, since she was one. Though I might be a bit jealous.
Really, we have much bigger issues with these people... Let’s lay off the class warfare stuff.
Ted Kennedy played the class warfare game and fought to keep the estate tax. Bet he didn’t lose half his estate when he died.
To be honest, both the Bush menu and the Obama menu both sound incredible. What is Huckleberry Pie?
Good Lord....113 dollars for gratuity and taxes. Wow! I mean I realize that the food they purchase was a bit pricy but 113 dollars???? Plus they could have been having dinner. It was after four.
I think the gratuity plus taxes was only $103. They tax the gratuity in New York from the looks of that receipt.
