The Live Fix!

We are taking an hour-long break from our self-imposed hiatus to take questions from Fixistas at 11 a.m. this morning.

You can submit your questions in advance or just follow along with the chat in real time. If you miss it -- how dare! -- we will post the full transcript in this space when we finish.

Have a great Labor Day weekend.

LOL!! Chump change. I thought the "change" he was talking about was what we'll be left with in our pockets.

If he does not want a primary opponent in 2012 he had better start doing what he promised to do during the campaign. He stated that he wanted change so I voted for him although I would have preferred Hillary. I did not know that what he meant by change is "Chump change" Or: as little as the republicans will give him.Right now, this guy is the second coming of Jimmy Carter, another guy who blew a Democratic presidency.

My question about the political backlash from Obama's address Tuesday to American schoochildren [SIC] was not selected. While the TEXT of pResident Obama's address is allegedly about learning, staying in school and taking personal responsibility, the clear SUB-text -- including the recommended course outline, aimed at students is explictly "what they can do to help" Obama politically -- is what I wanted Mr. Cillizza to address. My hypothetical, below, addresses the potential for abuse:

"At 12:00 p.m., Eastern Time (ET), October 2, 2002, President George W. Bush will deliver a national address to the students of America. (Please note that this is a change from the originally scheduled time)

During this special address, the President will speak directly to the nation’s children and youth about the threat Saddam Hussein poses to each of them even as they sleep in their beds at night. The President will challenge students to urge their parents contact Congress and pass H.J. Res. 114, the authorization for the President to use the Armed Forces of the United States "as he determines to be necessary and appropriate" in order to "defend the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq; and enforce all relevant United Nations Security Council Resolutions regarding Iraq."

If you want your child to opt out, we will take their names down and send them to another room where they will be laughed at and subjected to stealth directed energy weapons for the duration of the message."

Re: Obama facing a primary opponent in 2012, Mr. Cillizza says "It's inconceivable!" You keep using that word -- I do not think it means what you think it means -- love how you use two examples of actual primary opponents (albeit unsuccessful) to try to disprove. If you thought dropping the "public option" got the looney left riled up, just wait until GTMO isn't closed in January.
