Demand Question Time

It may not be realistic to hope that a regular Question Time with President Barack Obama would dramatically change the level of political discourse in the United States.  But, something has to change.  Check out the new movement and consider signing the petition.

From the folks at Demand Question Time:

"America could use more of this — an unfettered and public airing of political differences by our elected representatives. So we call on President Barack Obama and House Minority Leader John Boehner to hold these sessions regularly — and allow them to be broadcast and webcast live and without commercial interruption, sponsorship or intermediaries. We also urge the President and the Republican Senate caucus to follow suit. And we ask the President and the House and Senate caucuses of his own party to consider mounting similar direct question-and-answer sessions. We will ask future Presidents and Congresses to do the same.

It is time to make Question Time a regular feature of our democracy."
