Well this is certainly a new one. President Obama is participating in an AMA (“Ask Me Anything”) session on Reddit.

Want proof? This photo was initially uploaded:

That’s not impossible to fake or grab from elsewhere, of course. Getting ahold of Obama’s Twitter account as a second form of proof would be much tougher, however:

For the unaware, Reddit is a popular social news site that lets users post links to articles, videos, photos and other content from around the web. Other users can then discuss and vote on the content, with the most popular links floating to the top of each section.

“The front page of the internet,” is Reddit’s motto. The site’s Ask Me Anything sessions often include celebrities, scientists, people with weird jobs, people in the middle of dangerous situationsJeopardy! winners and more. Obama’s arguably the biggest name tacked to an AMA session yet, however.

Do you know why you are always wrong?

Because you are always think you are true when you deny the truth.

The root of problems are your ego.

That is why you are always wrong by denying the truth.

What exactly is he always wrong about, bailing out the auto industry and turning some of them around to the point they have record breaking profits?  How about his play call on Osama?  Or the fact that health care needs to be reformed and shaped much like the healthcare reform Romney himself put in place in Massachusetts?  Oh, you must be referring to his quotes on our need to use more green energy and putting resources into that (science has proven global warming exists and is exacerbated by humans).  Are his statements about the rich not paying their fair share wrong as well, that must be what you are referring to.  Wait, I know for sure now, his statements about regulation of Wall Street, you must be referring to that ( you know the banks that ruined this country).  Was he wrong to pull out a large portion of our troops from Afghanistan?  Please elaborate without insulting and providing facts.

He took mostly general softballs; the interesting questions were just skipped over.  Generally AMAs on Reddit are very candid and give glimpses you have not heard elsewhere.  This was all real safe stuff.

I tried the link, the server is down, too many people trying to get on.  Here is my question.

"Parallel Foreclosure appears to be a constitutional violation and a federal Hobbs act violation, extortion under the color of right (People can apply for HAMP but those who are late on their payments get priority and risk losing their homes as a result.), Why do you continue to believe that Parallel Foreclosure is legal?

same reason he thinks it is legal for him to force banks to take tarp money they dont want, to arbitrarily cut dividend payments, convert debt instruments to equity instruments, sell Obamacare to the people as "not a tax" but plea before the Supreme Court on the grounds that it is a tax . . . because he can. It's good to be king

MY EGO?? You are the one claiming to be the sole arbiter of the truth, claiming someone you dont even know is always wrong, and then claiming I am wrong without providing a shred of evidence too back up your claim. I would say that if anyone's ego is out of control here it is yours. As a point of FACT, I didnt deny anyone's statement, truth or lie. I merely made statements of my own; I didnt deny aanyone else's statements. So in addition to attributing your own hubris to me, you are factually incorrect. Other than that, you are just a peach, I am sure.
