President Obama to hold town hall on Twitter
Yahoo ^ | 6/30/11 | Adam Holisky

Posted on 06/30/2011 4:06:24 PM PDT by mdittmar

The President of the United States will be taking your questions about jobs and the economy on July 6 at 2 p.m. EDT over Twitter for what is being billed as the first Twitter town hall. Those interested in asking him a question can use the hashtag #AskObama and follow @townhall to hear his answers.

While we don't yet know how the president will choose which questions he answers or how long the tweeting session will last, check out Twitter's special page dedicated to the event for more information.

Any tweets(?) that are anti-Obama will go down the glory hole, I’m sure. A few FReepers who tweet would be helpful in capturing these before they’re lost.

Are the hashtags #ObamaFail, #SlidingIntoThirdWorldStatus and #MoveBack2Kenya already taken?

The ones that give him the best opportunities to spew mindless talking points.

Every question will be a plant, as in the “How do you find time to spend time with your girls while doing such a great job saving the universe” ilk.

According to this his re-election campaign has taken over his twitter account, so this “town-hall” meeting is all being managed by them.

Why would you ask the person who knows the least about economics about jobs and business??

Psst....Here's a clue....He doesn't do his homework...never mind cramming...

So it's tweet one-way and bloviate on the return path. I thought to myself, "Doesn't that break the Tweet protocol?", but you are right, they can use tweets as a one-way incoming mop and respond to the ones they select some other way.. like on the Whitehouse.gov propaganda site.

They hope it makes them look hip, modern, and responsive, while in reality, it's nothing of the kind.

His twitter account is being managed by his re-election campaign staff. If their job is to get him re-elected, they'll probably lock him in a closet somewhere until the meeting is over just to be sure he doesn't answer any questions himself.

Only reason why this big eared SOB is on twitter because the questions and answers are already written for him....

I know a rigged game when I see one.

Is he also going to use his “Flag.gov” operation to identify people by name on the Internet who are dissidents of his Supreme Central Government Agenda?

I'm totally certain he and his muscle thugs have special parting gifts planned for these he sees as “enemies”.

" The question is...who will he tweet it to? "

Probably Barney Frank, Sheila Jackson-Lee and Cynthia McKinny.

Oh gee, a twitter-prompter Townhall.. Nothing is more open, honest, upfront and genuine than that.

Nosiree.

The Won; The Messiah, will speak to us through the twitter verse, and tell us how great he is.

Question: will be he sucking on an ice-cream cone in Martha’s Vineyard, on yet again on another taxpayer funded vacation, while he does so?
