Whether or not you like Barack Obama, his Q&A session with a room full of nothing but elected Republicans asking him any question they want was apparently the first time this has ever happened in front of television cameras. It was basicaly a town hall with the whole audience being elected Republicans. Again, putting aside whether or not you like the guy or his policies, if you are just fascinated by politics or a student of political history, this was definitely worth watching.
Either Republican leaders are stupid, or Barack Obama “won” the day because the consensus is he came out pretty well in this. I’d like to see this kind of thing all the time. It’s one thing I’d like to see America adopt from England, questioning the leader and what not. And he didn’t even need a teleprompter 🙂
