President Obama's Faux Town Hall

Where are all the lefties to scream and yell at Obama for staging his own faux town hall meeting?

Oh yeah, the lefties were the ones asking Obama the faux questions.


President Obama has promised to change the way the government does business, but in at least one respect he is taking a page from the Bush playbook, stocking his town hall Thursday with supporters whose soft -- though far from planted -- questions provided openings to discuss his preferred message of the day.

Yeah, right. The softball questions were not planted!

Do they really expect people to believe that the questions were "far from planted"?

Anyway, Obama supporters one and all.

But while the online question portion of the White House town hall was open to any member of the public with an Internet connection, the five fully identified questioners called on randomly by the president in the East Room were anything but a diverse lot. They included: a member of the pro-Obama Service Employees International Union, a member of the Democratic National Committee who campaigned for Obama among Hispanics during the primary; a former Democratic candidate for Virginia state delegate who endorsed Obama last fall in an op-ed in the Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star; and a Virginia businessman who was a donor to Obama's campaign in 2008.
Must be nice to have softball questions thrown at you by your supporters, huh?
