Bristol Palin Asked When Mom Will Announce 2012 Intentions

Adam Bettcher/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Bristol Palin seems to have heard her mother’s orders loud and clear.

On ABC’s The View Thursday, after Barbara Walters asked her point-blank when Sarah Palin is going to announce her intentions for the 2012 race, Bristol stayed tight-lipped.

“That’s up to her when she’s going to announce,” she said.

Last week, at the Pella, Iowa, premiere of The Undefeated, Palin jokingly scolded her eldest daughter for saying on Fox & Friends that the former Alaska governor “definitely” knows if she’ll seek a presidential bid.

"I texted Bristol, I said 'What did you say this morning, honey?,’” she said. "What I told Bristol, too, I said, 'What is talked about on the fishing boat stays on the fishing boat.’”

Bristol has been making the rounds promoting her memoir, Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far. On The View, she also revealed that she has no intention of following her mother’s path into politics.

“No I don’t,” she said when asked if she as any political aspirations. “I have tons and tons of interests and I’m only 20, I don’t know what God has in store for me yet.”
