The White House is Open for Questions - Tell Obama what you think NOW
I have seen some excellent rants on DU recently, ranging from issues such as appointments (see also), Geithner, concerns about the economy, bailouts, etc.

Perhaps addressing these directly to Obama and his administration might be more proactive than preaching to the choir here at DU.

If we can vote in online polls by the hundreds at CNNFAUXMSNBCnoos, and/or spend hours commenting on websites like DU, we can certainly direct our online votes and comments to the White House!

This needs to be done today!

Maybe now's our chance:

The White House is inviting you to post your questions on the economy and vote on submissions from others. The President will answer some of the most popular in an online town hall on Thursday.

Open for Questions: President Obama to Answer Your Questions on Thursday

Today, the President invited everyone to use a new feature on WhiteHouse.gov called "Open for Questions" to ask a question about the economy and rate other questions up or down. Then, on Thursday morning, the President will conduct a special online town hall on the economy and answer some of the most popular questions and the event will be streamed on WhiteHouse.gov.

"Open for Questions" is a new experiment for WhiteHouse.gov, the Presidents latest effort to open up the White House and give Americans from around the country a direct line to the Administration.

This first round will deal with a chief concern for all of us: the economy. Weve created a few categories to better organize the questions, and encourage you to search for a specific question before you submit your own in case it already exists.

To get started, head over to http://WhiteHouse.gov/OpenForQuestions and set up your account. Then follow the simple instructions to start voting on questions or submit your own (we encourage you to include a link to a published video of the question being asked, although this is not required).

This experiment is about encouraging transparency and accountability, so ask the President exactly what it is you want to know but let others do the same. It is a community-moderated system, but remember that even though you may not like the viewpoint behind someones question, everyone has a right to their opinion. Also remember that Americans of all ages will be participating in this event, so be thoughtful about the words you choose. Participants are asked to follow some basic guidelines for submitting their own questions and flagging other questions as inappropriate.

So be part of history in the making and ask away. The team here at the White House cant wait to see Americas response!
