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.

BULLSHIT.. they do not pre-screen questions but guess who did? George W. Bush... His phony "town halls" were stuffed with ringers. All questions were pre-screened, no dissenters allowed in, and fake reporters invited to White House Press Conference.

The question to President Obama from Iraq was pre-approved only in that it was arranged for someone to repeat a question posted on the web, but it was not a softball question and it was not pre-approved.

Facts are horrible things when they prove continuously that Patriots has become a laughingstock.
