C-SPAN to replay Obama Q & A with House Republicans

The House Republican question-and-answer session with President Obama Friday -- which made for riveting television and is being widely compared to a session of Britain's "question time" of the prime minister by members of parliament -- will be re-aired tonight in full on C-SPAN at 8 p.m. Eastern.

The White House, clearly pleased with the positive response to the session, tweeted out a link to a transcript to its 1.69 million followers, using the hash tag "#questiontime."

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: You NOW have an opportunity to end the Recession by encouraging the Banks to make Prudent CRE Loans. The Banks are now unfettered to make Safe Loans. In Large American Cities there are thousands of Major Projects with Entitlements. CRE PRODUCES THE GREATEST NUMBER OF JOBS than any other segment of the Economy. Glass mfg, Steel Industry, truckers, architects, brokers, agents, construction workers, electricians, plumbers, office furniture manufacturers....WE COULD HAVE 6% UNEMPLOYMENT WITHIN 4 MONTHS....THERE ARE 140 SHOVEL READY, ENTITLED, PROJECTS OF 70 OR MORE UNITS READY TO GO IN LOS ANGELES alone!! People will be WORKING FOR 2 YEARS BEFORE THE BUILDINGS ARE COMPLETE; and by then, the Recession will be over and Tenants will Flood the Market to Purchase Modern “green” units. This same scenario is found in Boston, Philadelphia, Houston, Ft. Worth, Detroit, Cleveland, St. Louis, Kansas City, Tampa, Providence, Hartford, St. Paul—all across America.

The Republicans got slaughtered! It was not even close. I hope the Republicans do this every month.

I stand corrected. Obama took knife, fork, mustard, ketchup, salt, pepper, and bread with him. He was prepared to lunch on lion, and he seems to have made quite a tasty repast of the assembled Republicans.

He made it look easier than Cheney dealing with his well prepared crowds.

And he never once lost his smile.

When the Republicans were saying "Let's do this again" you could see the thought balloon go up "... when pigs fly."

So, John, bring the president and your friends to Cincinnati and let him tee you up at Sawyer Point, you can sit on the Serpentine Wall and he can stand out on the Ohio River.

Sans boat.

"Maybe the British do have a good idea, having their PM confront the Parliament on a regular basis."

Amen to that. More communication, more honest discussion, is almost always good. It won't always go that way of course, but if you never try, it definitely won't happen.

When your opponent is willing to meet you and all your friends in your alley on your terms and brings the press, frisk him bor ball bats, knives, and machine guns.

The Republicans let over confidence and circular validation convince them that Obama didn't stand a chance, and he gobbled them up like tic tacs.

We may all be thankful that the republicans never learn.

It is time that folks stop looking for a blame target. Folks of both parties make mistakes. It is now time to get off the pot,shape up and begin the working toward the tasks for which the people elected them. The tea party as we all know it, is over. We need a JOB party. Everyone in their house needs some type Insurance coverage.Everyone in their house needs to hold all of these representatives sitting on their hands to become responsible. We need to stop trying to say what kind of people can protect us at home and in war. Why should we care what sex preferences our troops choose while they protects us? Stop this discriminatiion of our troops.It is through the love of our country by our troops,who are parents,grandparents and siblings making sacrifices for us while protecting our country as some folks look for a different kind of savior. Let these troops keep their JOBS and stifle those Folks who pretend that the sex preference of folks, this decade, determines the quality of work That our Military folks do. WUWT?

I could not believe the details, the little details of the issues that get left out and slogans and sneering overwhelm it all.

This was eyeopening, a true conversation, with ideas without noise, for once.

Maybe the British do have a good idea, having their PM confront the Parliament on a regular basis.

Didn't McCain bring this idea up during the debates?
