YouTube interviews President Obama

By Matt DeLong

President Obama will show up on YouTube at 2:30 p.m. ET on Thursday to take questions submitted by the public. The event, moderated by YouTube's news and politics chief Steve Grove, is expected to last 45 minutes.

Nearly 140,000 questions were submitted and rated by YouTube users. The Huffington Post reported earlier Thursday that of the 200 most popular questions, 198 were about the drug war or marijuana -- though it appears many of those questions have now been (pardon the pun) weeded out.

You can watch the interview right here at 2:30 ET:

And here is the video of Obama's first YouTube interview, from Feb. 2, 2010:

This should also have been asked:

According to testimony from the head of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics to the Senate in 1937 “the primary reason to outlaw marijuana is its effect on the degenerate races” it “makes darkies think they are as good as whites” Today we know marijuana is safer than alcohol, can you have the courage to say this outdated law is wrong?

The drug war is "The New Jim Crow".

This was nothing more than a scam conducted by Youtube, Google, and Obama against the U.S.

In case that sounds a bit strong, please realize that Obama needs to be "cross-examined" by policy experts from across the spectrum on various topics, yet all Youtube did was set him up with fluffball questions.

And, the president of the U.S. was basically a shill for Google's commercial products.

For a clear example of how this was a scam, compare the DREAM question he was asked to the one I submitted:
