Mr Obama Claims To Be Taking Questions

From the latest (at this hour) taxpayer funded Obama propaganda front, Open For Questions:

(Click to enlarge)

Mr. Obama explains:

Here are the top questions – at this moment:

Your Questions on the Economy

Popular questions:

"As a student, who like so many others works full time and attends school full time, only to break even at the end of the month. What is the government doing to make higher education more affordable for lower and middle class families?" — James, Bloomington, Indiana   

"Are you still planning on penalizing the big business execs who take US jobs out of the country?" — Bart, VA 

"what is the US doing to bring back a solid manufacturing infastructure? the US used to be one of the most self sufficient countries in the world, now we can’t get the basics without importing. clothes,steel,cars,toys,food,oil. all imports" — Scottg, PA  

"What are your plans for the failing, "War on Drugs", thats sucking money from tax payers and putting non-violent people in prison longer than the violent criminals?" — Matt B, West Bend, WI   

"What are your plans to encourage corporations to keep middle class jobs, such as customer service call centers and transactional based support services like accounting and computer program jobs, in the U.S?" — PAG, Houston, TX 

"I appreciate the efforts of the administration to fix the economy quickly. However, why aren’t you giving the American public the chance to review these bills? In your campaign, you promised we would have at least 5 days." –Peter V, Oregon

"Is there any thoughts to help put out of work Americans to work in a service corps situation, similar to what was done with the CCC in the Roosevelt years?" — JR, S. florida 

"Why do we continue to offer positive tax incentives to major corporations that off-shore jobs?" — TBDandy, Boise, Idaho    

"With $1.2 billion going to Amtrak to expand passenger rail system here in the U.S., do you think this down payment will eventually lead to thousands of jobs to create the 21st passenger railways system here in the U.S. and catch up with Europe?" — TAG2102, Hollister, MO 

"Mr. President, I, like many American taxpayers, have had to withdraw money from my 401K to pay bills and survive this economy. Why won’t you help bail us out by waiving the 10% penalty fee." — Maddie, Meriden, CT  

At least you might have a chance to ask questions that our media dare not ask.

Of course they will almost certainly be ignored – if not removed as ‘inappropriate.’

    Answering questions from the unwashed? I don’t think so!!

  2. Right of the People says:

    “Uh, eh, uh, er, uh —-. Where’s my teleprompter?”

  3. Colonel1961 says:

    Ask the wrong question and they jot down your IP address and then send a letter from the IRS.

    I wish I were kidding…

  4. TwilightZoned says:

    The answers will be just like last night’s fiasco, from “presidential candidate” Obama, since campaigning seems to be all he actually knows how to. Sing it with me…”On the road again. Just can’t wait to get on the road again…”

  5. wardmama4 says:

    The American economy worked for 232 years – amazing that just as the empty-suited ‘community organizer’ takes the stage to campaign to be POTUS it all goes into the crapper. And why this immature idiot thinks that somehow HE knows exactly what to do.

    Talk about hubris. And arrogance.

    • proreason says:

      Yours is precisely the point that drives me the most crazy. Not just the economy, but the entire country has worked amazingly for 232 years, a success rivaled only by Eqypt, Rome and England.

      Why are we changing ANYTHING? no matter a wholesale transformation by lunatics juvenilely enamored by political and economic systems that have failed every single time it has been tried.

      The insanity of it just leaves you speechless.

    • pdsand says:

      These are people who think that our country was founded on slavery, and apparently the economic linchpin of the next two hundred years was segregation, defrauding the Mexicans, robber barons and killing indians. They see things the exact opposite, that the first 200 years of our country was a total failure, and that only in the last 40 years or so has there been any slight progress toward a country that “works”. Obama is the hope to finally right the ship and give us hope for the future.
      Only in this context and world view does anything Obama says about the U.S. make any sense.

    • Steve says:

      “Only in this context and world view does anything Obama says about the U.S. make any sense.”

      As Mr. Obama himself put it in his first autobiography, Dreams From My Father, “white folks’ greed runs a world in need.”

      (As we have noted before, this is supposed to be from Wright’s “Audacity To Hope” sermon. But it seems to but what Mr. Obama heard instead.)

  6. MinnesotaRush says:

    And is there any doubt that this little side show of “Ask Obama” is yet another series of smoke and mirrors that is this o-blah-blah circus?!?!

    Isn’t it interesting that in the batch of questions above alone, they feed nicely into many of the agendas, the pat answers and the talking points that are o-blah-blah and company (or should I say “team”) (or .. teleprompter).

    “As a student, who like so many others works full time and attends school full time, only to break even at the end of the month. What is the government doing to make higher education more affordable for lower and middle class families?” …. now he can talk about all the money a person can get for college for just donating a mere 400 hours of “service”.

    “Are you still planning on penalizing the big business execs who take US jobs out of the country?” …. now he can talk about the failed policies of the past, corporate greed, and HATE CAPITALISM.

    “With $1.2 billion going to Amtrak to expand passenger rail system here in the U.S., do you think this down payment will eventually lead to thousands of jobs to create the 21st passenger railways system here in the U.S. and catch up with Europe?” …. now he can talk up the greatness and how “stimulating” all the new 4-5 million jobs he’s gonna save or create, all the while modernizing our infrastructure.

    “Mr. President, I, like many American taxpayers, have had to withdraw money from my 401K to pay bills and survive this economy. Why won’t you help bail us out by waiving the 10% penalty fee.” …. and now he can remind us all of the terrible ineptness and mistakes that brought us here and how we’ll all have to sacrifice – help is on the way though (tax the rich)!

    Pete from Philadelphia, Megan from Minneapolis, and Carter from California are all probably a pool of (ACORN) “volunteers” sequestered over in the lunch room filling out question cards in between voter registration cards.

    What a pile of hooey and more of the same deception! His made up touchy feely good .. putsy little agenda driven questions. Who’s kiddin’ who?!?!?

    How about fielding some of these o-blah-blah …. (same as above but asked differently)
    * I’m hoping to go on to college. With all the money you’re throwing at education and educational institutes, will I be able to go for free?
    * Is there really any good reason to go on to college and have to worry about being taxed (90%) if I’m successful?
    * Are you doing anything about the high taxes and intrusive government regulations that drove companies out of this country so we can again become more self sufficient?
    * That pain in the butt War on Drugs .. which drugs will you be legalizing and how soon?
    * Are you going to sieze the assetts of any company and jail its’ owners and management that threatens to move their operations that provide middle class jobs, such as customer service call centers and transactional based support services like accounting and computer program jobs, out of the U.S?”
    * Were you just kidding when you promised that 5 day rule/polcy? This constant “we’ve got to move swiftly” is costing us tons and frankly is pissing me off.
    * Can we extend unemployment some more? .. and does EVERYBODY gotta work in that service corps crap your talkin’ about?
    * All those positive tax incentives for companies (and the wealthy) that were being given .. they are a policy of the PAST .. won’t they be?
    * I’ve heard that Amtrak has never been self sufficient much less make a profit. Is it a smart thing to do to keep throwing BILLIONS at it? When can we expect it to be SELF-sustaining?
    * Mr President, in less than 60 days your policies and politics have easily drained my net worth by at least 30%. At this rate, by the end of the year, I won’t have enough left of anything to be able to pay even your penalty fees. Will they be waived?
    And for extra credit, mr president …
    * Do you really think there are 57 states?
    * What is it kids with asthma use – breathalyzer or intahaler? .. and why treat them at all? .. won’t it just happen again?

    I’m sure the S&L’rs could come up with some dandy questions for mr o-blah-blah. Hmmmmmmm?!?

    • Liberals Demise says:

      When this seige of American Freedoms forces the very people you are trying to crush revolt………will you turn the US military loose on them? Or will you resort to the Forced Volunteer Conscripts to do your “dirty” work for you?

    • Kilmeny says:

      I noticed that too, and I especially enjoyed the question from “James” of Indiana. He is a full time student and employee and breaks even at the end of the month? What is his problem then? I haven’t broken even in years.

    • proreason says:

      How about: “Please define insanity. Is multiplying the national debt by a factor of 3 to solve a credit crisis certifiably insane? Is imposing userous taxes on the most productive members of society certifiably insane? Is violating the Constitution to save the country certifiably insane? Is restructuring the economy around myths that have been disproven by science certifiably insane? Is calling a budget that increases spending 34% ‘fiscally responsible certifiably insane? etc., etc., etc.”

    • Odie44 says:

      Communication is a 2 way street.

      Since Bambi and his park rangers will eliminate Q&A that doesn’t resonate with The Plan, it is thereby eliminating the “2 way”.

      The over-hyped commentary concerning “embracing technology and the future of communications in voters lives” is exactly opposite to the growing philosophy and tenants of “Web 2.0” Diggs, Twitter, social networking, RSS feeds, cross-linking platforms among multiple mediums and info deliverability; which IS the future of communications.

      And last time I checked – the ability to email a question to the President has existed for about 12 years. Basterdizing the aforementioned tenants is nothing more than this.

    • David says:

      The idiot is full of himself, claiming this as a cutting edge technology to have a virtual town hall. All it is, is posting questions which he will answer by video. President Bush hosted online discussions on the White House website and always had a way to submit questions. I guess the novelty is that Hussein will make a video of his responses. There really is nothing “townhall” about this stunt. Now if they make it so we can also comment and vote on his answers that would be something different all together.

  7. canary says:

    What a smokescreen to make him look like he’s majic and can read everyone’s mail. How many jobs would that create. He claims his staff shows him 44 letters a day from thousands a day. Why 44? Is that his lucky majic number.

    Which reminds me. Sweetness-light posted a news clip of a man that had his “abort Obama” (abort means to stop) by police, got his sign back, but then Secret Security paid him a visit. He and his family are still recieving death threats, begging for police protection. He asked for prayers, and asked who or what Acorn is? He also asked this site being passed around. On March 31st people are to send red envelopes to the White House, objecting to abortion on the back of the envelopes. I’d forgotten about this, and noticed this site is updated. Anyways, while people’s views on abortion may vary, I thought it would be a good oppurtunity for people to write any message on any subject, they’d like to get to the white house. From this guys story, you might want to use rubber gloves and use a sponge to seal the envelope, and don’t leave a return address, or Obama’s regime and volunteers might harrass you. If not pray for America. Period. Reminds me of one of Obama’s pre-election stories, after recieving a letter from a doctor, responded with his detailed story of one poor white family standing with signs at an election, and Obama’s handlers saying he should sneak in a different door, and how Obama claims how brave he was, and that he wanted to have a word with the family, and he did. It was so white of him to lower himself.

  8. Reality Bytes says:

    Mr. President. Should a nuclear or WMD device be detonated in the US killing thousands if not millions of American citizens (no doubt along with innocent undocumented “Americans”), will it be an act of war or the result of an Contingency Operation Event?

    And, Mr. President, if it is the latter, is such the event enemies of America, which you have sworn to protect & defend the Unites States from?

  9. MinnesotaRush says:

    From the crafty “Ask Obama” website .. (sorry if I’m in the wrong posting section) ..

    “92,934 people have submitted 104,051 questions and cast 3,604,995 votes”

    92 some thousand people submitted questions AND cast 3.6 MILLION votes. I knew ACORN was involved!
