Obama to Partner With Google for 'First-Ever Presidential Hangout Road Trip'

Obama to Partner With Google for 'First-Ever Presidential Hangout Road Trip' Daniel Halper January 23, 2014 11:00 AM

President Obama will partner with Google for the "first-ever Presidential Hangout Road Trip," Google announced today.

"Next Tuesday, at 9pm EST, President Obama will deliver his annual State of the Union address to Congress. Later that week, you'll have the chance to connect with the President and speak about his administration’s plan in the first-ever Presidential Hangout Road Trip," claims Google in a blog post.

But it would appear the "Road Trip" does not require the president to hit the road:

On Friday, January 31, President Obama will “travel” the country in a virtual whistlestop tour. He’ll hop into Google+ Hangouts with people from across the United States to answer their questions and hear their thoughts about the topics he addressed in his speech.

If you have a question for the President and would like the opportunity to participate in the Hangout Road Trip, just record a 60-second video with your name, location, a bit about yourself and the question you’d like to ask. Then post it on YouTube or Google+ and share it publicly with the hashtag #AskObama2014.Next Tuesday, tune in to watch the State of the Union address, as well as the Republican response, live on YouTube. Then join us and President Obama on Friday for a one-of-a-kind road trip.

Lets flood them with questions!

Where is your real birth certificate?

Why do you think the president has the ability to decide other people’s income? Or even express his opinion on it? Do your rich liberal freinds think they earn too much? Shouldnt you force them to “share the wealth”?

Who ordered illegal guns to be sold to mexican drug lords?

Who ordered the IRS to harrass your political opponents?

What happened the the Solyndra files the FBI took?

This is what the Presidency has sunk to. This idiot degrades it further everyday.

This is his attempt to reconnect with the hip younger class he has screwed over so immensely these past 5 years.

Do you really think he, or Google will allow these questions to be asked? Dream on.

I have questions...what kind of weed will be supplied for the trip? Mexican, Columbian? Will there be alarm clocks or can you sleep all day like at the White hut? What video games will be on board?

Is your Chrome browser spying on YOU?

Cyber criminals can use Google voice recognition software to listen in on conversations

Tal Ater discovered that people with bad intentions could potentially use the web browser’s voice recognition abilities to invade users’ privacy

He reported the problem to Google’s engineers, who came up with a patch for the problem, that has yet to be implemented

I’ve always known google was a communist outfit.

Try using goodsearch.com.

When you first use it, they ask you to name a “charity”. If you name FR, every time you do a goodsearch, they will donate a few pennies to FR. With a lot of us using it, those pennies will add up fast, and will go to a good cause!

Does “goodsearch” have some privacy built in, like IXQUICK, which I use?

I have used them for years, and there’s never been a problem that I know of.

Fake but accurate. A “virtual” President on a virtual tour. Makes perfect sense.

The Google God

. …Government, education, intelligence, robotics, healthcare, automobiles, military weapons, weather, space, media, cellphones, banking, flying.

You name it, Google is there cooking up a storm of business all over the planet.

Has there ever been a company that is so intertwined into the whole entire global economic fabric of society?

Has there ever been a company that has been able to, "legally," access so much information about so many people and so many businesses on a continuous basis?

Google Earth? Google Maps? Google everything.
