    Yeah! He needs to get the same kind of merciless interview that $arah got from Hannity after she stuck the entire Shoe Carnival in her mouth during the "Blood Libel" comments and damage control to save her revenues....THAT would learn him! ;)

    He will answer the questions if a storm does'nt knock the power off!

    "The Early Show" people that have chatted wih Dems and/or Obama have only thrown softballs. This show is merely a front for liberal news.

    I have a question Mr. President - How can you send so much money to Egypt while your people suffer?????

    How many teleprompters does it take for the president to field questions about the economy? Guesses anyone?

    Perhaps they should challenge Obama on his claim we produce more oil now than ever. I don't know about you, but 9.6M barrels a day in 1970 seems like more oil than 5.5M barrels in 2010. Those 4.1M barrels a day difference is only 3 million American jobs, after all.

    Obama doesn't know anything about the economy, that's evident by what he has done to this country for the past 2 1/2 years.

    Mr.BO exactly how much was spent on each job using the stimulus funding of 850 billion? A wild guess will work in your case...

    Looks like another softball game. Lets let all the liberals ask him simple questions. Questions that his advisors will answer and post on the teleprompter for him! What a JOKE!
