Get Ready To #AskObama Why The Country's Credit Card Is Maxed Out

Tyler Durden's picture

The biggest farce of the day is about to unfold as Obama holds a "twitter hall" meeting in which he will accept questions, pre-cleared and moderated by Twitter itself, which means congratulations, about the economy and jobs. The town hall can be accessed by using the #AskJobs hash tag or at the website below. As usual, this will be merely another PR debacle in which everyone participating will see the questions which are not being answered, and ignore the softballs lobbed at the teleprompter in chief.

The live streaming is beginning:

The townhall site:

Some more details on the format:

While questions must be asked in the 140 character limit imposed by Twitter, the president will have free range in his answers. Shortened summaries of Obama’s responses will be posted to @townhall.

Twitter co-founder and Executive Chairman Jack Dorsey will read the questions and the president will offer his responses to an audience of 140 in the East Room of the White House, although the majority of the questions will come from Twitter users across the country, not from within the room.

Roughly 30 members of the audience will be Twitter followers from across the nation picked through the White House’s “Tweetup” page.  The VIPs will live tweet the event and get a chance to meet with senior policy officials afterwards, according to the White House.

It's an aluminum bat hooked up to a battery, just in case he slips up and asks a real question.

Ask Obama where that TV is made..... then ask him why it is not made here in the US of A....

I see his lips moving but nothing of substance or value is coming out of his mouth.

I'm convinced BO is just your typical Joe six-pack moron. He has no clue of the complex reasons why we are in such a mess and has no clue how to fix it.

Twitters non existent business model yet keeps getting money thrown at it. Not hard to see the Joo run social media will be controlling people's opinions.

I've heard that insinuating that the US is broke is tantamount to terrorism.

He's super smart. I saw him use a Blackberry during the election.

All the college chicks got moist over that.

Dr. Richard Head's picture

Tyler:  you need to have a  portion of this site showing the most egregious example of propaganda/disinformation  of the day.  Methinks the TOTUS would always win.

jus_lite_reading's picture

I second that...... TD has no chance against the telepromter machine in office....

nothing but propaganda all day from these bought and paid for whores

High Plains Drifter's picture

Can I tweet the President and tell him that the term "pickup basketball game" does not include trying to pick up guys for homosexual sex.

Dr. Richard Head's picture

That is not very PC.  Call it "GM channel stuffing" instead.

High Plains Drifter's picture

I used to go to this crazy biker bar on Shepherd drive in Houston , that was called Dickhead's . He used to go by the name of Richard Head.  I thought it was kind of funny.
