Top 20 Censored #AskObama Questions

If anyone can find the complete list of #AskObama questions that were posed to the President, please let me know in the comments. In the mean time, here are my top 20 questions that "curators" (i.e., censors) didn't ask -- for obvious reasons.

20. @uschamber: Will you help businesses and free enterprise create #jobs by getting government out of the way? #AskObama

19. @jimgeraghty: Under 8 years of George W. Bush, the unemployment rate was never above 7.3%. When will it be that low again? #AskObama

18. @mrmichaelwilt: What is an acceptable level of debt, and why? #AskObama

17. @SpeakerBoehner: Will you take tax hikes off the table, or tell the American people how raising taxes will create jobs?

16. @jimmiebjr: I have Jewish friends who lack devil horns & pointed tails. Are they hiding them or are your "partners for peace" wrong? #AskObama

15. @jltho: #AskObama: Can you name states 51-57?

14. @GOPoversight: #AskObama: how are your job-crushing #regulations helping #smallbiz owners like Neil?

13. @iowahawkblog: #askobama When you're visiting his volcano lair, does George Soros let you feed the laser sharks?

12. @DarrellIssa: #AskObama: who authorized your administration's operation #fastandfurious?

11. @ToddRokita: Your budget was rejected by Senate 97-0 & Dems haven’t produced budget in 700+ days. Where is your economic plan? #AskObama

10. @jimgeraghty: When long-term unemployment is higher than during the Great Depression, why do you insist we are "headed in the right direction"? #AskObama

9. @SpielzOnWheels: #AskObama How do you explain your administrations continued antagonism toward Israel our most important ally in the Middle East?

8. @IngrahamAngle: #AskObama Have you spoken to the families of the border agents slain as a result of fast and furious?

7. @jimgeraghty: Why did your Department of Housing and Urban Development just give a $78K grant to ACORN? #AskObama

6. @keder: Have you noticed a spike in the price of arugula thanks to the inflation caused by your spending addiction? #AskObama

5. @corrinalea: How much has your golf game improved since you took office? #AskObama

4. @Doc_0: Under what conditions would you pronounce a gov't program a "failure" that should be terminated? Name one such program. #AskObama

3. @iowahawkblog: #askobama if Eric Holder gets indicted in the Operation Fast & Furious, should he get a civilian trial?

2. @CFHeather: Before you raise taxes on hardworking Americans, why not get rid of the special interest loopholes that allow $GE to pay no taxes? #AskObama

1. @iowahawkblog: #askobama Who are these "those who say"?

It's a tough job serving as one of Twitter's Q&A censors curators. Think about it: you've got to find a topic that doesn't touch upon the president's epic failures on both the domestic and foreign policy fronts.

As @amandacarpenter noted on Twitter: the "saddest part about #AskObama are all the good, hard-hitting questions that will never actually get asked."

21. @mttoppatriot: Does a birth certificate for you exist that meets the rule of law of the US Constitution in Article 1 Section 2 as to your lawful position as president of the United States? #AskObama

Do you prefer an orange jumpsuit or stripes?

"13. @iowahawkblog: #askobama When you're visiting his volcano lair, does George Soros let you feed the laser sharks?"

Priceless! If I had the inclination to do the twitter thing, my question that would have been "moderated" out would have gone something like:

@the_bad: How would Senator Obama have reacted to President Bush engaging in war with Libya without Congressional approval? #AskObama

This list is worthless! Clearly you just picked questions you liked, rather than questions that were massively popular but ignored.

#1 should be this one, because it had by far the most tweets, but was totally ignored:

"Would you consider legalizing marijuana to increase revenue and save tax dollars by freeing up crowded prisons, court rooms?"

By the way, this article probably links to the data about tweets you are looking for, you partisan hack:

That specific question has the single most amount of retweets, but was by far not the topic most often asked about.

Look at the graphic showing the metrics, you single-issue hack.

The topic of cannabis was the single most tweeted about issue that was completely ignored i.e. censored. The other topics were addressed many times, and were therefore not censored. Your list is "Top 20 censored questions" and the cannabis question IS the most censored single question. In your reply to me you are now pretending, as a dodge, to be concerned about topics, but again, all the topics you mention were addressed many times. The cannabis topic was never addressed.

Thanks you guys! America is coming apart at the seams, we got a rouge commie in the White House along with his own shadow government pouring gasoline on the fire, and your bitching about not being able to legally spark up a doobie?
Thanks a lot.
With nincompoops like you all that place the priority of legalizing pot above everything else it gives me boundless hope for my country.

Here some more questions for President Putzhead:

How do you think you are going to survive politically when you have mucked up the economy so bad?

After you’re cloward pivened the nation, what’s your back up plan to fool people into re-electing you?

Have you shame? The country is running off a cliff and all you can spout is a pantload of Marxist class warfare bull hockey.
