President Obama, Facebook and you
We're trying something new tonight, and I think you'll like it. We want to see what some of the 175 million Facebook users around the world think about President Obama's speech to a Joint Session of Congress tonight.
So we'll be posting questions on Facebook during the speech, and then we'll share the results in our two-hour edition of AC360 right after the President’s remarks. The questions will refer to specific issues raised during the President’s speech, and your answers will help us take the pulse of how the President did tonite.
We've never done this before, neither has Facebook - no one has. So, for us, this will be an exciting experiment.
What do you think we should ask? Post a comment below and let us know. You can check out the questions later tonite, during the speech on Facebook, and we’ll have the answers for you tonight on AC360 at 10PM ET.
See you then..
Hey Anderson, I have been following what everyone is saying and I want to say the President speech was well put out, but in this country it seems like nothing is good enough for some people. I am neither a Republican nor a Democrat and since I have been in this country, this is one of the first times I am really pleased about a President. I hear people come on your show and critics his idea while they give no real solution on how to solve the problem. I am from a different country and I am proud of how things is being run and how he is trying to take care of different issues he inherited in office but I listen to some channel like fox news, then I realize they are just there to break not to fix or help fix. All I want to say is that just like the President said, they should all come together to resolve this problems not what I hear on fox news and what some of the people that are invited on various shows talk about. Please help me tell those people to go and see people suffering out there before they say anything or let them try and live in a shelter home like this people are doing or lose their job before they know how people feeling my point is that they have not experienced poverty because if they have, they will not talk the way they do and this is America we are talking about not third world countries. So people you need to think about others before you say something and I pray God continue to bless America
Good Morning Anderson,
I enjoyed the cnn/facebook concept last night. Was truly awesome to exchange thoughts, ideas with other's.
I liked what our President had to say. I believe he has our best interests in mind.
Thanks again for the chance to interact!
