Obama hosts Google 'hangout'


Washington (CNN) - While reaching out to supporters through one of the latest high-tech means, President Obama expanded his social media experience by holding a Google+ video chat room interview on Monday afternoon.

In an election year, it's probably not good politics to talk about what you look forward to doing after your time in the White House, but that's exactly what President Obama did when asked about the frustrations of living in the security bubble.

    He reamins the only adult in the room and the strongest advocate for the working people. Independents will swarm to the President now that the Republicans have offered such a clown car full of poor choices.

    Since the Obama administration getting in the White House, personally, I never get anything better, except being disadvantaged.
    However, those who are more benefited than the previous administrations are the same people who controlled all the accesses of Government and public Offices. They are the dangerous blood and Soul suckers of the ordinary Americans. We need the Government to investigate and break the barriers that's in between.
    To be frank, I am Ethopian-American, whom disadvantaged by the Obama administration and I have no respect to him.
    His administration committed Cultural Genocide against Ethiopians in America and beyond.

    President Obama is a man of today and tomorrow, a man who is intelligent, educated and who has tried to help the country recover from 8 dreadful years of Bush as the Republican's did everything possible to make him fail thus the country fails. . Then, when you look at the Republican candidates: Perry – another not too smart Texas governor, Herman Cain- how did he ever even become a nominee. Santorum – he seems to be running for Pope. Ron Paul – interesting candidate but really far-out. Bachmann and Palin – makes intelligent women cringe when they speak. And that leaves Gingrich and Romney. They have spent weeks tearing each other down, and spening millions making charges against each other that are character assination. What has happened to the once-proud Republican Party? In the upcoming November election, the only candidate that is trustworthy, who acts like an adult and whose sole motive is to bring the country back to the success we had before Bush is PRESIDENT OBAMA.

    Sometimes I think Pres. Obama is more interested in hearing himself talk rather than working behind the scenes actually to solve America's problems. Pres. Bush was less interested in self-promotion.
