Obama Town Hall Filled With Actors

October 14, 2010

President Obama is staging a town hall to help push the youth vote in the upcoming November election.  However, the Obama town hall will not be filled with the youth of America seeking to ask the President questions.  The Obama town hall will be filled with actors in an attempt to ensure the President is not caught off-guard by tough questions.

According to a story at Human Events: On behalf of the President, casting website Backstage.com put out a casting call for “males and females 18+” to fill out a questionnaire to include “your name, phone number, hometown, school attending, your job and what issues, if any, you are interested in, or passionate about. Also provide a recent photo and short description of your political views.”

Obama town halls have been plagued recently by people asking unscripted questions which have embarrassed President Obama.  The upcoming Obama town hall is now being billed as the “Conversation with President Obama” in an attempt to spin this faux Obama town hall into a legitimate forum of the youth of America with President Obama.

Oddly enough, during the 2008 campaign, Obama criticized Hillary Clinton for having questions planted in her town halls.  Apparently the President considers having an audience full of actors a legitimate town hall.
