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.

    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.

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

  • JustSomeLibertarian

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

  • Patty

    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.

  • Mizflame98

    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.

  • FurryGuy

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

  • Coasta

    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.

    That reminded me 😆

    ‘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?”’

    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.

    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?

    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.

  • Swifty

    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.

    ______________

    NO. Everyone has become dependent upon Spellcheck. Never mind that 2/3 of the words in the English language are not in Spellcheck. REALLY never mind that Spellcheck approves ALL correctly spelled words. So, the Eiffel Tower is a beautiful site, you here the birds sing and asked Obama asked Obama is perfectly “legitimate” because everything is spelled correctly.

    Grammar Checker you say? Not if you ever write anything that resembles a complex or compound sentence . . . that is more difficult that a third grade writing level.

    Due to the economy, more families will be forced to live down the river in a cardboard box. The American Spirit and good old Protestant work ethic will continue to help these families find opportunities to supplement their income of collecting cans by giving HJs to Hobos in the park for a shiny piece of copper. Meanwhile, stay in school and maybe someday you too kid can become an Ivy league elitist snob in charge of finding new ways to combat Global Warming by swindling money from struggling families.Remember only the best and brightest will get million dollar government grants that will make you rich quickly by embezzling the money and hiding it away in the Caymans. Also, if you keeps your wits about you, you will be able to promptly bankrupt the company, sell the assets to oversea buyers at a fraction of the cost, boosting your country club associates, and send whatever is left to our debt masters in China. And all of this done without fear of jail or other repercussions. It’s a good time to be living in America.

    Notice that Obama FLIPPED THE BIRD when he said “young people” (at 30 seconds).

    He could NOT care less. In fact, he thinks it’s funny. Very funny that people are suffering, BECAUSE THAT MEANS THINGS ARE GOING ACCORDING TO PLAN.

    Narcissists are notoriously ungenerous to children. Do you know that the “President” and “First ‘Lady'” don’t give gifts to their daughters as is typical of the USA?

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/barackobama/2460299/Barack-Obama-does-not-give-birthday-presents-to-children.html

    Jerk. If you know Indonesians, it is as plain on the nose on your face that Obama doesn’t give a sh-t about what these kids are asking him, about the problems in the economy, or about their future. And that’s even without the flipping the bird habit he “doesn’t” have.

    Pfeff.

    Throw him out.

  • Patty

    I think the 10 year old should have known Obama has no answers for a thing. Seems the 10 year should have known this because Obama has been acting like a 5 year old.

    How can Obama do a thing when it is more important for him to blame the other guy. And that is very childish.

  • MamaGrizzly

    Agree #26.

    What he also meant to say is: “Hey–I’ve got mine. I golf. We go on extravagant vacays. Sucks to be you, doesn’t it.”

    When I become dictator, oh, I mean when I’m re-elected, I’ll fix everything. I’ll make it so none of you little brats can ask me anything.

    ——

    I also wanted to remark about HOW BORED he was. It was like YAWN–how many times to I have to recite these talking point sound bites. Besides I am late for my latest:

    http://newsflavor.com/politics/us-politics/the-ulsterman-report-sex-and-murder-in-the-land-of-obama/

    And I really need some coke.

    And that is really important to ME ME ME ME ME ME ME. Now shut up and go home, you pesky non-Moslem America-is-the-problem little twerps. Are we done here?

  • Liz

    What a dolt. I don’t think Obama understood the question. She said people are living in their cars because of you, O. Comprende? Capiche? Can we get someone with American values in office, please?

  • Rose

    “…And my staff selects 10 for me to read…”

    What a condescending piece of garbage.

  • bubba

    And don’t forget that schools sell the liberal ideal. We want a behaved populace.

  • Barack Odoacer

    Hard to listen to Obama, isn’t it with that constant slurring of the letter “s”?

    And I thought he was supposed to be so well-spoken. Add the “s” propblem to all the ‘gonnas’ and ‘shouldas’ and it’s just another couple of examples of how embarrassing it is to have him anywhere near the White House.

  • elmo

    This pathetic guy cannot even schedule a speech! He is not going to be able to get anyone a job much less out of poverty.

  • BarbaAZ

    These are the 10 letters obama reads everyday……G-I-M-M-E M-O-N-E-Y. Every day it’s the same ten letters over and over. Any questions?

  • It’s bad enough he lies directly in the American public’s face, but now children too?
    Are a couple of 10 year olds all he could russle up to give him yet another platform to vomit his talking points?

  • Mrs. X

    What a condescending and rude jerk. How does he know the educational level of the people depicted in the boy’s question? Most of the jobs out there ARE LOW PAYING and do not require anything past a GED. Most people are taking jobs they are over-qualified for.
    Just another example of why this president has no idea what he’s doing or what the hell he’s talking about.

  • AuntieMadder

    Proof that Barky isn’t smarter than a fifth grader.

  • eaglewingz08

    Telling children that the worst problems they will face will be from non existent global warming rather than from his socialist profligate spending problems, beggars the mind.

As well as discourage on the job training so you NEED the assistance I referred to earlier to learn virutally anything making you dependant on the government. oh and then if you cant find a job when you graduate? I will make sure you goto jail for defaulting on your student loan.”

    Mr. Obama indirectly (and certainly unintentionally) stumbled upon the truth here. He is admitting that the current government run public school system, controlled by the teachers’ unions, is incapable of providing our kids with the math, science, communications, and writing skills…to be competent in the average job!
