The Obama-Biden Transition wants to hear from you.

(The Obama transition team has taken a hint from the website, and now has an official page dedicated to gathering input from Americans: "Use our 'Open for Questions' tool to ask a question about a policy or issue that's important to you." Ok, then. Maybe this will be a better experience than the privately-run "". Only one way to find out... -rep.)

Obama Team Rolls Out New Web Site That Takes Questions From Public
By Greg Sargent and Eric Kleefeld - December 10, 2008, 1:38PM

This is pretty interesting: An Obama aide points out to us that the Obama transition team has just rolled out an innovative new feature on its Web site, hoping to carry through on the President-elect's campaign promises of greater government transparency.

It's a page entitled "Open For Questions," in which anyone can submit questions to the transition and, subsequently, to the administration.

The rub, though, is this: The public is able to vote on how much they'd like certain queries to be a priority, and the voting tally is visible -- which means it'll be tougher for the Obama team to not answer questions that participants clearly want answered.

Here's how it works: Users get three options in voting on a question. They can vote in favor of a question being answered; they can vote against it being answered; or they can flag the question as inappropriate.

The Obama team is clearly exposing itself to a bit of a risk here. It could find itself choosing between answering an uncomfortable question and ducking one that the public is clamoring for an answer to. And if the state of the country fails to improve (or gets even worse) over the next few years, the public could also end up registering more and more negative questions.

The new page is here.

I'm Afraid Our Questions Will Disappear

I'll watch for a while to see what happens.

You know they DO NOT want to hear from us.

From the farthest corners of the Earth, down to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Truth is Awakening.

Deep within the bowels of the Alphabet Agencie,s more and more of the staff in the line are awakening.

The CONSTITUTION is NOT going to "collapse" into pulverized dust no matter how much thermate/explosives or planes they throw at it

Here's a Good One...

The whole thing is to give the perception of influence aka PR!

Don't buy into their propaganda, which when targeted for domestic consumption has been tagged with the euphemistic moniker Public Relations. Edward Bernays lives on.

I used to be a disc jockey back in the 70s and 80s. When I got to the larger markets, they would have us solicit requests to give the perception that we were responsive to the wants of the listeners. We would even take the request and say, "sure, I will try to work that in for you." The truth was that all of the music was pre selected by a computer program and we hardly ever deviated because of a request. Occasionally we would say, "Jane Doe from Dallas requested this one and here it is." It was all bogus made up shit. There was no Jane Doe, and no request for that song. Sometimes the requested song would happen to come up in the computer rotation and the listener would call and say "Thanks for playing my request". It was just a coincidence.

However, if the owner of the station, or the General Manager called with a request, or if a major advertiser called with a request, we worked it in as soon as we could. If we didn't, our job may be in jeopardy.

This is the kind of bullshit that the Obama people are propagating, only the stakes are much higher. Just the same, they are not going to respond to any of this crap. It is PR. If they do respond to any of it, it will be a coincidence. Their paid market research will have told them the same thing. That is, the polls that they use internally, which are statistically sound, randomly sampled and tabulated using accepted statistical formulas. Even then, it may be a PR response, rather than anything of substance.

The way to get Obama to respond is by taking this to the people and building our numbers. If Obama's job depends on it, then he may respond. Otherwise, he won't.

Probably Designed To Create A Sense Of Public Empowerment

I suspect the results will be reviewed by a Council on Foreign Relations study group to gauge public opinions.

The Obama phenomena is apparently focused on managing the public during radical transitions and regenerating positive opinions.

Joe Biden is to Obama as Dick Cheney was to Bush.

The title of this blog entry should be modified to:

The Obama-Biden Transition does NOT want to hear from you.

Looks like they have a new feature:

instead of removing the question entirely, now they just make it look like more people voted against it than for it, those diabolical bastards.

Wow they really..

don't want to hear from me. I can look through the questions, but I can't vote, sign in or ask a qustion! Is this happening to anyone else? I will try on another computer later.

Contact your represenatives!

Complete bullshit

This site is a Gov. op, complete and utter bullshit, don't waste your time.

The politics of distraction and diversion are now online

and on a government web site.

Why am I not surprised?

The Obama psyop is second only to the 9/11 psyop, and they are closely related.

Today is the eleventh, get out and talk to real people in the street. Tell them the "war on terror" is costing us trillions and killing the economy just as the Vietnam nightmare did, and it is based on a false flag event, just as Vietnam was.

We need to keep educating the public in every way we can.

Those who don't understand history....

Love is a verb, brothers and sisters, let's get busier!

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

The censorship of their site has made MSM news.......

but not about our 911 questions. They are censoring questions pertaining to the Illinois governor, Blagojevich, who was arrested for trying to sell his senate appointment, which would fill the seat Obama is vacating to become president. The story was linked on drudge and comes from

They don't realize, or at least don't report, that the censorship is actually coming directly from the Obama camp. They are reporting that the censorship is coming from Obama supporters who vote the questions down. We know from our experience that the Obama employees and PR operatives are the censors. They are just using the angle of citizens voting ideas down as another PUBLIC RELATIONS deception, disguising their damage control, message control tactics.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave......

Wolf Blitzer covered it too.

He had on a Republican operative Tucker Eschew and Tucker was complaining about the questions being censored on the site.

Just struck me ironically

Obama - Biden..... OsAMA BIn laDEN

it couldn't possibly be that in your face... could it? ? ? ? ?
Together in Truth!

question submission

I submitted a question about finding out how Barry Jennings died. If we can vote that up enough, honest viewers of the voting could be moved to do real research.

Didn't work for me

I just went to the site, registered, and tried to vote for several questions but nothing happened. So the site is not working for me. 0 votes were registered. I think this is some PR gambit on Obama's part, make us feel we're being heard. I sent him an email a few weeks ago, suggesting some progressive choices he could make for cabinet positions. Of course, he did not take my advice. Well, I didn't vote for him, didn't drink the Kool Aide. notified me this idea is in eighth place

I just received this email telling me that my idea is in eighth place. It's been posted for weeks and hasn't been removed. Perhaps we could bump this one into the top 3?

Text of email:

We wanted to let you know that there are only 2 weeks left in the first round of the "Ideas for Change in America" competition, and your idea is in 8th place in the Civic Engagement category.

The top 3 rated ideas for each category will make it to the second round, which will be held in early January so we can announce the winners of the competition just before the Presidential Inauguration. You need 149 votes to move up to third place in Civic Engagement.

The best way to increase your votes is to email your link to friends and ask them to support your idea and pass it on. You can do this by forwarding the following link:

You can also put a badge for your idea on your blog or website by clicking on the link and grabbing the embed code on the right side of your ideas page.

Best of luck!
