Did Obama’s Town Hall the other day seem a bit fake to you? That’s because it was.
…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 [LOL!! – ed.] 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.
At the risk of appearing to have Obama Derangement Syndrome, this is the stuff totalitarianism is made of. This is the sort of blatant fakery the old Soviet Union and the like would be proud of. “Dear Leader! Tell me of your glorious plans for health care!”
It is both funny . . . and scary.
