What questions would you ask Obama at tonight’s presser?

Posted by: ST on July 22, 2009 at 2:23 pm

Ed Morrissey’s got a good rundown of what the President is supposed to address tonight in his 8 PM ET presser, along with a list of questions blogger Keith Hennessey believes should be asked of our celebrity President.

If you were amongst the press corps this evening – and assuming you weren’t “pre-screened” (yeah, I know – big assumption), what questions would you ask President Obama?

    Mr president, how would you handle the press conference if BOTH teleprompters came crashing down?

  2. Larry Sheldon says:

    Dang. Too late.

  3. “Sir, it is truly a burden to be as wonderful as you are?”
    (asked by MSNBC correspondent)

  4. Mwalimu Daudi says:

    “When do you plan to resign?”

  5. Lorica says:

    Why are you wasting our time with another stupid press conference??

    Perhaps, if the ratings are low enough we won’t have to deal with this for awhile. – Lorica

  6. Tom W says:

    Mr. President,
    Is it true that in 2006 you congratulated a foreigner for being publicly rude to the President of your country?

  7. Ohio Girl says:

    Is it your intention to make this country a Socialist nation and take away the FREEDOM that America is known for?

  8. Scott says:

    Mr. President, do you believe that any bill coming to your desk SHOULD include a provision that members of congress and the executive branch be included in any bill they intend to enact on America? And if not, will you sign one that doesn’t include such a provision?

  9. Carlos says:

    Unfortunately, Lorica, his ego is big enough he doesn’t have to worry that the only ones watching the presser are the sycophants from the MSM, plus maybe three others in the entire U.S.of A.

    My question to him would be to know if he understands that “freedom” refers to the entire legal population of the United States, the word is used in the Constitution that he has sworn to uphold (another lie!) and that from all appearances he has yet to introduce a single piece of legislation that is bound by the limits set in that Constitution?

  10. Chick says:

    1. Mr President, will you read the entire bill prior to signing it? Can you guarantee that ANY members of congress will read the bill prior to voting on it?

    2. Mr President, why isn’t Tort Reform among your considerations for lowering healthcare costs?

    2. Mr President, how about a single payer system to cover the malpractice insurance for our nation’s doctors? Wouldn’t that invest the government in reducing frivolous law suits?

  11. Ron Russell says:

    Mr President, I see you’re wearing the flag pin again tonight will you continue to wear it in 2013 when you are no longer president?

  12. Jo says:

    Mr. President, firstly, what is the big danged rush? And secondly, when has anything the government runs cost the American WORKING TAXPAYERS less?

  13. Kate says:

    Mr. President, How do you intend to stop fraud and mismanagement that runs rampant in Medicare and Medicaid when you implement a national plan? Will there be a Healthcare Fraud Czar?

  14. Carlos says:

    “Will there be a Healthcare Fraud Czar?”

    And how much will he be allowed to skim off the top?

  15. Lorica says:

    If 14 months to attack Iraq is a “rush to war”, which has yet to cost us a trillion dollars, then 2 months to create a new governement entity who is going to spend a trillion dollars, is a “rush to stupidity”. – Lorica

    Asking The One questions is a mug’s game – see Joe the Plumber. I think I’d just throw a shoe at him. That way the media would applaud my courage.
