Obama's Gibbs Grilled on Shady Tactics
Obama is successfully controlling the flow of information by manipulating one the purest forums of the democratic process. A town hall meeting is an informal public meeting derived from the traditional town meetings of New England. Similarly to those meetings, everybody in a community is invited to attend, voice their opinions, and hears the responses from public figures and elected officials, although attendees rarely vote on an issue. In today's heterogeneous communities with large populations, more often, town hall meetings are held so that people can influence elected officials in their decision making or to give them a chance to feel that their voices are being heard.
There are no specific rules or guidelines for holding a town hall meeting. If the turnout is large, and the objective is to give as many people as possible an opportunity to speak, the group can be broken down into smaller discussion groups. Participants all hear an opening presentation and then group-up to discuss an aspect of the presentation. Each group appoints someone to summarize their group's discussion.
But at this Obama Hall Meeting, Obama is controlling who attends, who speaks and what questions are asked. Obama is a dangerous individual and using control tactics that should raise concern among Americans. Obama State controlled media should be stopped.
