So, we can really ask the President... anything?

Psst… Head over to for a minute... See that little "Your chance to ask the President a question" thing below the search box? Click on it.

Apparently, Google is sponsoring a "first-ever Presidential Hangout Road Trip" next week, whereby regular citizens will be able to ask President Obama any question they want after the State of the Union Address, and he'll supposedly respond to them.

Two observations.

First, as for Google – well done. Cool idea. Seriously. We give you props.

Second, as for the President – we have some questions for you. So as not to rain on Google's laudable parade, we'll ask some of them here.

Question 1. If the Obama Administration can figure this out, why is the Obamacare Web site so screwed up?

Question 2. Why do we need to ask the President questions; doesn't the NSA already know everything we're thinking?

Question 3. Could the President seek to do other things virtually? Like, could he take his next vacation to Hawaii virtually by using Google Maps to enjoy the sand and surf? Could he play his next round of golf virtually on a Wii Fit? That could save a lot of money.

We can't wait to see what other people ask the President.
