In the not-so-important but definitely over-hyped Obama ‘online townhall’ – where the President took questions in the form of Youtube videos voted-on by internet users – Obama took the time to address a question that received a great number of votes, but that he would not be discussing in-depth: legalization of marijuana.
Now, I didn’t expect this President to legalize marijuana – but his age, and previous comments about ‘inhaling frequently’ had me thinking he wouldn’t end up dropping some condescending bullshit like “I don’t know what this says about the online audience“.
Well, Mr President, I’ll tell you what it says about the online audience – the audience that you exploited to elect you [you have a feckin' Twitter account - give me a break], and that you’ve made such a show of addressing in this silly ‘online townhall’ [and you know, forget the question itself - this could have been any topic, and just happens to be about marijuana use]. It says that we have legitimate views that you need to take the time to adequately and professionally address. It says that by electing you we thought certain completely valid issues would once again be discussed intelligently and maturely by the American people and our government. But instead, the question is the punchline of a Washington joke.
You’re looking more and more Presidential everyday, Mr. Obama – and that shit isn’t a compliment.
