Obama 'hanging out' with the help of Google

(CNN) - In the latest iteration of the administration's efforts to connect to supporters via social media, President Barack Obama will take part Monday in a Google+ 'Hangout," a chat room-like feature of Google+ that allows users to connect with each other via video connections.

The White House pledges the president will answer "several of the most popular questions" submitted through YouTube while some questioners will be invited to participate in a live conversation on Google+.

The latest social media push follows a Twitter town hall the president held over the summer. To the disappointment of some, the president merely answered pre-selected questions from Twitter users in that forum.

    Never mind the "Hanging out" Obama. Back to work. When will we see some justice in the Fort Hood murders by the Islamic terrorist? Or has that been swept under the carpet with all the other scandals you are responsible for?

      That's a disturbing comment...Are you accusing this President of being complicit of murder? Or are you saying he's committing treason in shurking responsibilities? First of all, I certainly hope that none of your loved ones where involved causing this irrational accusation. But just recently congresswoman Gabby Giffords resigned as a result of another incident in your state....do you have concerns about what happened to those that suffered and died at that event? Because this president is doing all that he can to protect our men and women in the armed forces, starting with bringing them home from an unnecessary war that killed thousands....that's what you should be looking at.

      You are hilarious....Most of Us Americans.....all of a sudden you are the spokes person for most americans? I thought that's why we elected presidents...and you certainly don't speak for me, or anyone with a brain, as to suggest we should elect anyone of the GOP/Clown candidates running for the WH. That's a laugh...Keep the Faux News jokes coming because we are all amused at how silly you folks are becoming

    This could be good depending how it's done. You will still need somebody like a moderator to sift through the thousands of questions. This could mean that the one who is sifting picks only easy questions. We'll have to wait and see how it plays out.

    Ok...lets have a real press conference like every other President has had... put this guy on the hot seat without a teleprompter. This is just another slick game from the media persona obama.

      hey....NoBrain 2012, the President, when he was a candidate, did two debates with John McCain during the general. There were no teleprompters. But let's back up a minute....Please tell us a single president in the past century that didn't use a teleprompter or read even read from a piece of paper; contents of their speech? How are those weak, tired, pathetic, faux news idiot bumper stickers working out for you these days? Doesn't it seem a bit sad that's all you folks have?

    Hey did anyone see where the first lady had her $50,000.00 shoping spree at Agent Provocateur? She closed off part of Madison Avenue for her little extravaganza. Well, we usually see her (with the media camera rolling) shopping Target. Gosh, I thought she was this poor little black girl from the south side of chicago..modest means. WRONG!

      you know jealousy and envy of the flotus is an ugly thing, and you are appear to be troll....poor little black girl indeed. This flotus is a professional, accomplished attorney, harvard graduate. I think her accomplishments far exceed anything you've done.

      anything about shame? Poets, good poets at least though it papears Bill Julian can hardly be called that, recognize the power of words. Good people recognize that we should treat others as we would like to be treated. That means not hiding behind disingenuous bullshit and batting our lashes that, gosh, we're just asking questions, isn't a person allowed to ask questions?Ask John McCain what he thought of pollsters asking how voters would feel if he had fathered a black child. Words mean things and they reveal our biases as surely as anything does.I am not talking about politicians. I didn't title this post Politicians are not immune. I'm talking about poets. McCain has sure as hell come out in favor of discrimination based on sexual orientation, and that is completely unacceptable to me, but again, I'm talking about poets people I actually have some contact with.I can't watch the video from here, though I tried.I stick by my original position. Those who call Obama Hussein are stupid people. The nicest I can be is to feel sorry for them.
