What would you ask the President of the United States?

What would you ask the President of the united States, If given the opportunity

This may be a question of a life time for the sophomore
college student, he was quite bold and direct… too bad
the President did not reply with the same tenacity, even
though he claims he and his family are not that far away
from those years when they did not know what bill was
going to be paid on time, including their student loans…

Here is the question –

a young man who identified himself as a college sophomore
— and wisely didn’t provide his name
— complimented the president on his efforts to stimulate
the economy. He then asked Obama whether he has considered
“legalizing prostitution, gambling, drugs and nonviolent crime”
as a way to further boost economic growth.

President Obama’s reply-

“I appreciate the boldness of your question, but that would not be my strategy,” the president said, to laughter. In college, he said, “what you are supposed to do is to question conventional wisdom.  So you’re doing what you’re supposed to do.”

[btw-never really answered this question]
I guess He is fitting in to “Washington-Politics as usual”

IMHO –

I guess he was far enough removed from that time in his life,
that he lost one of the lessons he learned in college “to question
conventional wisdom…” Finn Perkins

So is It “Quasi-President” or “President”, what are we teaching our kids, not to mention the 2 Kids who live at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Fly on the wall, when this get explained…

 

First dog of the USA 2009
First dog of the USA 2009

 

Parents – “ok kids,met your new puppy!  [ -almost used,   -almost a shelter puppy,   -only had this name for a very short time-6 months]

Kids – Can we name him?
Parents Sure!

Kids –  Ok, His name is Bo!
Parents Great!

Kids –  Where did he come from?
Parents –  Well, Bo is a quasi-rescue dog!

Kids –  What is Quasi?
Parents – Because, he was home-less, but not in a shelter.

Why was he homeless?
Parents  – the First family, I mean his first family, I mean the original family that bought him, said he didn’t fit in.

Kids –  Why, is something wrong with him?
Parents  – Oh no, actually he the best  [- a Kennedy can buy], with a month at obedience school and changing his name, he is Perfect.

 Kids –  So, if he’s perfect, why didn’t the first family, I mean the other family want him?
Parents  – Well, to be honest, “uncle Teddy”,  called in a few favors, seems the Bo’s other  family, didn’t pay all their taxes,  the deduction for NAKC was a mistake, they confused it with ASPCA. 
Kids –  Why?
Parents – Because I said so…

 

Immigration Reform and Amnesty – while we are on the topic, is Ms. Zeituni Onyango still in Ohio [where she went after media blitz in Boston]?

I haven’t actually read these words, or come across a sentence that asks the question – 

  “Is President Obama’s [half-]Aunt still here in the US, and is this proposed reform written with Zeituni Onyango in mind”?

The proposed Immigration Reform and Amnesty included the following:

  • Undocumented Workers Currently in the United States:
     Undocumented workers could come forward immediately and receive probationary legal status.
                 
  • The Bill creates a four-year, renewable Z visa for those unlawfully residing within the U.S. before January 1, 2007.
     
  • Undocumented immigrants may adjust status to lawful permanent residence once
     they pay $5,000 in fees and fines and their head of household returns to their home country.
  • Border Security:
       Provide structures for detaining up to 27,500 aliens per day on an annual basis.
  • Employment Verification:
     Require employers to electronically verify new employees to prove identity and work eligibility.
  • Guest Worker Program (requires border security measures to be in place first):
     Create a new temporary guest worker program with two-year “Y visas,” initially capped
      at 400,000 per year with annual adjustments based on market fluctuations.
  • Permanent Residence (Green Card) through the Point System:
     380,000 visas a year would be awarded based on a point system,
  • Other Changes to the Immigration System:
     Spouses and minor children of U.S. citizens and permanent residents would be eligible
      for green cards based purely on their family connections, but other relatives such
      as adult children and siblings would not.

at what point are we allowed to hold Sen. Obama accountable…

I realize the trip was warranted, but, like most us we can’t use our company credit card for personal use, no matter how grave the circumstance.

Reprinted from The Huffington post. Seth Colter Walls (for complete article)

RNC blasted out a complaint from the California Republican Party charging that “Obama for America violated federal law by converting its campaign funds to Senator Obama’s personal use” for the trip. That proposed issue for the FEC to investigate is one of five violations alleged by California Republicans in their complaint (which you can read in its entirety here).
