Transcript via FOX Nation:

TOPANGA: Mr. President, I live in central Florida. And some of my friends and some children in my neighborhood have had to live in hotels because their parents lost their jobs and lost their home to foreclosure. What would you say to kids and families who are struggling in this economy?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, I get a lot of letters from young people all across the country. I get about 10 letters a day. The White House gets about 40,000, but my staff selects 10 for me to read. And some of them are from young people whose parents are struggling. And I usually try to respond to young people especially.

The economy has gone through a very difficult time. And we’ve gone through times like this before where a lot of people get laid off from work. We had a big economic crisis. It’s getting better, but not as fast as we’d like. And I think what I would tell you is the same thing I tell these young people and their parents, which is that we’re going to do everything we can to try to provide assistance to people so they don’t lose their homes. We’re going to do everything we can to try to start new businesses and create new opportunities for people to be able to get the jobs of the future.

I also tell the young people that this is why it’s so important to go to school and to really focus on being able to go to college and get a degree, because most of the jobs these days are going to be jobs where you’ve got to have a good education. You’ve got to have good math skills. You have to have good science skills. You have to have good communications and writing skills. If you don’t, it’s going to be very hard to get a job.

  1. Good question, but too bad the kid’s family is about to undergo an extended government colonoscopy because he had the temerity to question the Messianic Won.

  2. I wonder if he will be disappeared.

  3. Send this out along with the Gibson CEO interview… Campaign Gold … early bird gets the worm…

  4. Why do need a good education to build roads and bridges?

  5. Well, Obama’s answer is a carbon copy of all his speeches. He should have told the boy to go to his website that is another thing he is good at.
    I am amazed he didn’t blame Bush and Congress once again.

    Obama heard the boy? Friends living in Cars? I am surprised Obama didn’t ask “are the green cars”?

    College tuition are skyrocketing, this answer about getting a great education is good but people are hungry, now, homeless, now…….Obama didn’t answer the question: WHY DOES HE HAVE AN AWFUL JOB RECORD?

    Maybe he should have given the 10 year old the truth but he skirted it. Trillions spent, Obamacare, no experience in Economy 101, self serving President. Instead, the same old excuse. Couldn’t blame himself.

  6. The irony is a lot of people with those college degrees and math skills are the now unemployed. Barry did a whole lot of talking but said absolutely nothing.

  7. There will be many people who dismiss this exchange as being phoney simply because it is Fox that is reporting on it.

  8. Bullhockey! Hey obummer, are you smarter than a 10 year old, ya freak?

    …….most of the people I know, including myself in this demographic have been laid off, let go, downsized, foreclosed on and WE WERE THE ONES THAT WENT TO COLLEGE AND OR WORKED OUR WAY UP to the best we could be, have families, paid the mortgage, etc. I am scared as hell but living in the car may be next.

    Stupid is what stupid says.

  9. Hussein flipped the bird, typical.

    That reminded me :lol:

    ‘Obama goes to a primary school to talk to the kids to get a little PR. After his talk he offers question time. One little boy puts up his hand and Obama asks him his name.

    “Walter,” responds the little boy.”And what is your question, Walter?”

    “I have 4 questions:

    First, why did the USA Bomb Libya without the support of the Congress?
    Second, why do you keep saying you fixed the economy when it’s actually worse?
    Third, why did you say that Jeremiah Wright was your mentor, then said that you knew nothing about his preaching and beliefs?
    Fourth, why are we so worried about Brazil drilling for oil, but we aren’t allowed to?”

    Just then, the bell rings for recess. Obama informs the kiddies that they will continue after recess.

    When they resume Obama says, “OK, where were we? Oh, that’s right: question time.. Who has a question?”

    Another little boy puts up his hand. Obama points him out and asks him his name.

    “Steve,” he responds.

    “And what is your question, Steve?”

    Actually, I have 6 questions.

    First, why did the USA Bomb Libya without the support of the Congress?
    Second, why do you keep saying you fixed the economy when it’s actually worse?
    Third, why did you say that Jeremiah Wright was your mentor, then said that you knew nothing about his preaching’s and beliefs?
    Fourth, why are we so worried about Brazil drilling for oil, but we aren’t allowed to?
    Fifth, why did the recess bell go off 20 minutes early?

    And sixth, what the F*CK happened to Walter?”’

  10. PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, I get a lot of letters from young people all across the country. I get about 10 letters a day. The White House gets about 40,000, but my staff selects 10 for me to read

    I bet Barry’s staff only selects letters that give messianic praise. The other 39,990 letters get round-filed as not being sufficiently reverential to his High and Empty-Suitedness.

  11. Tuition rates for a College education are skyrocketing. I don’t know how my children are going to be able to afford College. Why aren’t college administrators hauled in front of Congress to answer for the double digit increases every year like oil company CEO’s?

  12. Sorta off-topic: What kind of idiot names their kid “Topanga”?

  13. On asking Sir Golfsalot a serious question: So easy, even a child can do it!

  14. Young reporters from Scholastic publications–part of the Scholastic News Kids Press Corps—interviewed Pres. Obama on July 15. The video has just been released today.

    Hmmmm, released September 1, made July 15. Makes me wonder how edited this video is.

    I’m frankly surprised this saw the light of day at all.

  15. Get a degree. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

    In fact, get an advanced degree. Don’t worry about all that debt you’ll accumulate in pursuing your degrees. Then you can go work for some place like NASA where advanced degrees are retty much a requirement to get the really important things done.

    What? Mass layoffs at NASA? Never mind.

    How about getting into those lucrative bio-tech jobs or those “green” jobs? Yeah, that’s it. Go green. You spent your green on getting an education. Now go green to get it back. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

  16. #12 Sorta off-topic: What kind of idiot names their kid “Topanga”?

    Google (or Bing) Boy Meets World. Topanga was hot for a kid.

  17. Aaaaand…he give her the finger…smart Barack, really smart.

  18. A 10 year-old kid asked Obama a tougher question than the lapdog media. 10 year-old Floridian asked Obama asked Obama about the economy and struggling families…

    DOES ANYONE PROOFREAD ANYMORE?!!!!!!

  19. Ten letters for Obama to read every day. Hmmm… Ten sheets of toilet paper for The One.

  20. Keep in mind Barry didn’t work hard in school/college and earned lousy grades.
