On Monday, President Obama is scheduled to sit down in the library of the White House residence for his first interview since his State of the Union address.

The interviewer? The United States of YouTube

In a first-of-its-kind group interview, Mr. Obama will read and watch questions submitted by YouTube users and answer them in a live Webcast. “It’s a way to give people access to the president that feels more participatory,” said Macon Phillips, the Obama administration’s director of new media.

Do you think he’d answer someone who asked, “Where’s your ?birth certificate?”

I thought his one regret was that he was too busy “doing stuff” to explain to us peons why his policies were good for us...so now he's going to play games with hand picked questions from youtube? Does anyone in their right mind think he'll take on questions that are difficult and probing?

“Mr. President, why do you still claim you “inherited” this crisis, when the Democrats were in control of Congress since 2007 and as a Senator, you voted for and praised TARP ?
Isn’t it a crisis you helped make ?”

They will of course cherry pick a bunch of softballs.

The man is joke.

He wouldn’t last two minutes if he had to face a hostile media like Bush had to constantly.

Yeah, like that's not going to be scripted and vetted to a fair-thee-well.

This is one of Axelgreasy’s favorite scams. This is merely a variation of astroturfing, as Barry’s team will field the queries they want aired, pretending to be from mere citizens. Democrats are a criminal enterprise. They lie. Obama lies. Obama’s entire administration is manned with liars, professional liars. That is the new definition of populist, BTW, professional liars.

Instead of "fielding" the questions, it would be nice if he would actually answer the questions.

I tried to type out a comment about Obama’s latest shamwow campaign infomercial attempt on YouTube but try as I might, I just can’t keep a civil tongue in my head. This guy needs to be hauled off in a straightjacket!

I’d like to ask him...”you said that unemployment would be under 8% at this time if the Stimulus was passed. Well...it’s not. Did you lie or were you wrong?”

The idiot couldn’t handle “Joe the Plumber” without denigrating him on the national stage in his next presence. He will witness the power of the “working class” and it will boot him to obscurity. I truly despise this individual and he would never be welcome in my home.

The WSJ guy who comes on with Greta was at the event where Obama talked to the Republicans. He said “he’s a good speaker but he thinks he can talk his way out of anything.”

Luntz said that he’s very quick on his feet.

So, they’re trotting out gimmicks to try to energize his base again...so that he can talk his way out of the disaster we’re in. But at this point I think it’s pretty hard to sell hope and change to people who are still unemployed and have lost their houses.

Hard sell to normal people, but were talking about youtubers:) Not that all the youtube content is frivolous, but for the most part it’s a dumping ground for brain bubble gum.

Answer this two-part question;

If a single public Healthcare option is what you advocate, will you lead by example and enroll yourself and all of your family, in that same public Healthcare option without exemption for any alternative Healthcare ? And will you promise today, that every single US senator and every single member of the US House of Representatives will also be fully enrolled in that exact same public Healthcare option that you advocate, without any sort of exemption for alternative Healthcare ?

I’m sure failbama would be happy to make any promise he needs to to get his commiecare passed. It would just be another broken one in a long line of broken promises.

yup, that’s what he said yesterday, but today is not yesterday, and tomorrow is not today, and what he said today, is not what he said, so you see what he says tomorrow is not what he said yesterday, or what he says tomorrow or what he says today, so there you have it.

Yes, I suppose you’re right...all they need is enough of the power monger’s personal stash of idiots out there and they’ll get away with everything.

Here in Oregon in one county (the one with Portland) SEIU outvoted all the other counties to pass a gross receipts retroactive tax on businesses so SEIU could keep its overpaid government jobs - of course claiming “it’s for the children” This was on Tuesday and people have already been fired, companies who thought about coming here say they won’t now, some business will be no more. The parasite will kill the host.

well you know the old saying “drug abuse is life abuse” and I think Oregon has a whole bunch of life abusers, maybe only second to California.

Some still unanswered questions keeping the public wondering:
1) When did you really first meet William Ayers?
2) Why did you not run the other way and take your children far, far from hate monger Revenerand Jeremiah Wright?
3) In what religion were you brought up for most of your childhood?
5) Can you read the news in Arabic?
6) Is there a war on terror? If so, why aren’t you fighting it with all methods possible?

Questions like that will only cause another teleprompter suicide. I think FR should get an offical Obama Avitar, so that we can really some truthful answers to these and other important questions.

My question is WHY are you cutting and gutting my Medicare, Tricare and why IF congress can have a pay raise can't we seniors and retired Military have our tiny 2% COLA raise.

The new Demonrat mantra! Woof, woof, let granny eat dog food...spoof on 'let them eat cake'.The articles also contain the new big fees to Tricare for Life the retired over 65 Military's secondary health ins)

obama's war on seniors See the links in post 43-46 and on the last page.

Expanding support for families balancing work with caring for elderly relatives with a $102.5 million Caregiver Initiative adding $52.5 million in funding to Department of Health and Human Services caregiver support programs that provide temporary respite care, counseling, training, and referrals to critical services. The administration says the extra funding will allow nearly 200,000 additional caregivers to be served and 3 million more hours of respite care to be provided. It also adds $50 million to programs that provide transportation help, adult day care, and in-home services, such as aides to help seniors bathe and cook, help which eases the burden for family members and helps seniors stay in their homes.

Even the commie rag Mother Jones is reporting the cut and gut to granny's SS/Medicare.
