Obama on Oprah

The Goddess of Gab interviewed President Obama and first lady Michelle last week in an exclusive from Oprah World.

Not surprisingly, there were a lot of softball questions. But here is part of the interview that was cut from the final broadcast.

Oprah interviewing the president and asking:

1. “You do realize that you forgot to bow when I entered the room, don’t you?”

2. “Did you ditch those baggy dad jeans?”

3. “You don’t have any chubby female interns here do you?”

4. “Seen “Avatar” yet?”

5. “What are those White House State Dinner crashers really like?”

6. “Who do you think the Secret Service will surprise you with overnight while you’re sleeping?”

7. “You’re speaking at a Home Depot this week — have you given any thought to my suggestion of speaking at Stedman’s favorite Ralph’s in Oxnard?”

8. “How is it possible that you forgot to invite Joe Lieberman to this year’s White House Hanukah party?”

9. “Is it true when you played golf with Tiger Woods he slowed down after 15 holes?”

10. “Pop quiz, Mr. President: I’ll mention a name and you give me the first answer that comes to your mind in the form of a popular song”:

1. Oprah: “Your presidency after one year?”

Obama: “What’s Goin’ On.”

2. Oprah: “Dick Cheney?”

Obama: “Don’t fear the reaper.”

3. Oprah: “MSNBC?”

Obama: “Under My Thumb.”

4. Oprah: “Sarah Palin?”

Obama: ” ‘You’re Having My Baby.’ I’m just kidding. That’s a joke, Michelle. Michelle?!”

Oprah: “I think you’re in the doghouse with Bo tonight, Mr. President. So, again, Sarah Palin?”

Obama: “That’s a tough one. Let’s go with “Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough.”

Oprah: “I was thinking more along the line of ‘You’re So Vain.’ “

Obama: “Meouch!”

5. Oprah: “John McCain?”

Obama: “Neil Young’s “Old Man” is predictable. And the Beatles’ “I’m a Loser” is too obvious. So I’ll go with Kansas’s’Dust in the Wind.’ “

6. Oprah: “What song is Fox News thinking of when they cover any story about you?”

Obama: “Hmm… this is a tie between ‘What a Fool Believes’ and ‘Paint it black.’ “

7. Oprah: “What song are you thinking of when you listen to Republicans in the news?”

Obama: “Rush Limbaugh singing ‘It’s my party.’ “

8. Oprah: “George W. Bush?”

Obama: “How did that theme from ‘Gomer Pyle’ go again?”

9. Oprah: “The Tea Party protesters?”

Obama: “I’ll test your musical knowledge with this one —- it’s an instrumental recorded by Hugo Montenegro from one of Clint Eastwood’s lesser known Westerns called “Hang ’em High.’ “

10. Oprah: “Me?”

Obama: “What if God was one of us?’ “

Oprah: “Amen to that.”
