I have been invited to a special dinner in honour of President Obama when he visits Ireland next month, are there any questions you think I should ask him?
I could really use a job as his janitor and/or housekeeper if he has a position open. Beyond that I'm drawing a blank.
Yeah. Why'd he give the okay to assassinate US citizens?

There are several things he's done as President that have disappointed me, but this one is the most egregious.
He's also done some good things, but those don't excuse this terrible breach of justice.
Ask him nothing.
TELL him to get his and Arne Duncan's and Kevin Jennings' hands off America's children.
No questions here, but congratulations on scoring the invitation.
mmmmmmm...... Ask him if he could aide the American people by wiping their credit scores clean and not penalizing their credit due to foreclosure, repos, etc. Giving all individuals a fresh start. This could aide in the stimulation of the economy. The banks have recoverd there money ten fold however the Americans are still struggling to get back on there feet.
IRS: If you owe don't penalize them for each day or year, give them a flat amount due without penalty. If they are unemployed allow them to negotiate to 0.00 and make it a clean slate.
Student Loans provide the loans with lower interest so college students can afford to pay them off.
Whatever happened to the American role in the peace process in the Middle East, and is the US government really worried about what is happening in the area?
"I will be Meeting President Obama next month any questions for him?" You must be big-time.
Not really, just have an insight into the Northern Ireland Peace Process and he wants an update
Please ask Mr. Soetero if he plans to build his presidential library in his home state of Connecticut someday.
Oh. What kind of "insight" we talking here?
"Northern Ireland Peace Process" Is that an oxymoron or is that actually possible?
Take it then that you will be giving an optimistic assessment.
That is really great, TIO!
Perhaps there is something about Ireland that makes it more possible to meet heads of state. When I was in Dublin in 1997 my aunt (a Dubliner) gave us her invitation to a reception. I was too shy, but my boyfriend went up and shook hands with the Prime Minister (Taoiseach is current term, I believe).
That doesn't happen in America every day, I'll tell you!
Now, as to what you should ask Obama.
How about "What is your #1 priority in your second term in office?"
(being optimistic here).
Thanks. We look forward to a full report (hub, hub, hub)!!
How about this:
Mr. Obama would you considering stepping down and stop wasting the American Peoples’ time and money and please fade back into the same obscurity your Birth certificate resides?
Or would such a request damage your ego too much?
Congratulation for getting the invitation to meet the President of United States of America.
Ask President Obama this:
1. What his plans are in containing the dwindling economic prospects for Greece, Ireland, Portugal, and Spain.
2. Why do his citizens keep on bothering him about his birth certificate whilst they never asked the same to previous presidents?
I would say, don't ask him anything. You're not likely to get an answer worth listening to, to begin with.
I do hope to ask him about his position in relation to Iraq and Afghanistan as it appears unclear - I could be wrong about that
Please do ask him. And report back to us, that after 15 minutes of expounding and explaining, it will be even less clear than it is now.
Yes, I wouldn't mind an answer to that either, but the one about authorizing the assassination of US citizens is more pressing to me.
Also, ask him why is it that his government is not putting enough effort in fighting pirates and terrorism in Somalia as they are doing in Iraq and Afghanistan?
Ask him too why is it that Haiti has a very close proximity to his country yet very little wealth and influence from his country seems to be trickling in to that poor country.
"I could be wrong about that" No it is clear. They plan to stay forever whether they can afford it or not.
Wow, that's really exciting. Ask him what he thinks of the new Radiohead album.
Ask him why the United States seems to be the "world's police force".
I bet it would make headline news.
I'd really love to hear the answer.
*Thanks for taking part in the peace process in Ireland.
And ask why they won't do anything about all the cars parked on the pavement up my street.
Ask him why the US hasn't joined other civilized nations in ratifying the cluster bomb and land mine treaties.
And to satisfy Donald Trump, you may want to ask him if he was really born in Hawaii. :-)
..hey Irish...i think that's cool you'll be attending dinner...why not ask him what he'd do to turn around Ireland's economy if he were leader...like how to improve the credit score so folks can/will invest in Ireland....or some other question about Ireland....you know, see if he keeps abreast of Ireland's issues.
Please ask him why he never salutes our flag!!!! I've seen him appear at several functions where everyone else is saluting the flag but he stands with his arms by his side!!
please ask him what is being done about the foreclosure crisis - specifically the quote unquote "settlement" between the banks and state attorney generals... things aren't looking good right now.
also what is the situation with HAMP? is there going to be any reform with the program or is it going to be dissolved?
Well I am amazed at the variety of suggestions, most appear to be very positive however, I am having a meeting where I am expected to keep a serious face, so asking if he paid that woman's mortgage may leave me a little ticklish
You can tell him I said "thank you". That's not a blanket endorsement of all decisions. He's made some serious mistakes. (You don't have to tell him that.) But considering the mess he inherited, he's done a better job than anyone has a right to expect against the most systematic, partisan resistance any president has faced.
Hi Irish! Tell him I am a fan of his!! If he knows me, LOL LOl LOL
Pretty I am certain that he will know of your wonderful writing and excellent hubs
President Barack Obama on Wednesday plans to take questions from Facebook users during an Internet “town hall” in Silicon Valley in which he’s likely to tout his ideas on reducing the U.S. budget deficit.
The event is another trip out West by the president to raise money for his reelection campaign and drum up political support in the high-tech industry. Silicon Valley was a big source of campaign cash in Obama’s first presidential run.
The president also hopes to reconnect with young voters, part of his core group of backers in his victorious 2008 presidential campaign.
The White House
President Barack Obama talks with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg before a dinner in February.
Obama will share the stage at Facebook headquarters with Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg, the company’s 26-year-old co-founder. Zuckerberg dined with the president in February along with a number of other prominent high-tech executives.
The event is slated to start at 4:45 Eastern
First, the rumor was that Facebook was courting Obama's former press secretary Robert Gibbs for some sort of management position. Now, it looks like Obama may just do it himself. Won't it be oh so nice when the O owns a major social network!? Wow I can't wait! What fun to see an ambitious bully control a major portion of the airwaves! He won't even have to spend any money on his own tv channel this time!
His meetings are staged, I am positive if you get picked to ask a question, they will have it all writen out for you..!
Yes there is one question I would like to ask Irish.
When is the American admin going to stop treating whistle blowers like criminals and hunting down people like Julian Assange?
Congratulations on being invited to a meeting with the President, I hope it is fruitful.
Ask him why he's just a cool version of George Bush.
Why did he invade a country without asking congress?
Why has he yet to leave Iraq?
Why is he bombing Pakistan?
Why hasn't he shut down Gitmo?
Why is he letting this continue:
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/ap … h-suicides
http://english.aljazeera.net/news/ameri … 83918.html
Why hasn't he returned his Nobel Prize for Peace? -- he's in the middle of 4 wars, 1 of which he started, 3 of which he refuses to end.

Do you think that President Obama should produce his birth certificate, and end the arguing that...has been going on over his citizenship?
by Marlene Bertrand 7 years ago
Recently, I have been reading reports about how President Obama's birth certificate is a forgery. According to one reporter, the white house has a PDF version of the certificate that is publically available. I looked at the certificate and something about the numbers struck me as odd. Then, I read...

What do you think about President Obama so far?People blame the President when the US Congress that is controlled by the Republicans is really screwing over America. How anyone could support the so called Tea Party is beyond me. They really don't care about the average American. They are only...
