President Obama, a DU member?

According to James Fallows in The Atlantic Magazine:

"Obama is more likely to be spending time with papers or a book, or even to be online—prowling through the same blogs and news sites as the rest of us"

So do you think he wanders around here reading all our little snippets and snappets?

President Obama, do you?

4. Yeah, but he spends all his time in the Lounge.

I DO know he has his staff monitoring message boards and DU would be a great resource because I've seen him implement several of my suggestions.

7. Hey....

If that were true, for the rest of my life I'd be wondering if I had actually predicted the results of the President's maneuvering years in advance...

...Or if he was just reading my journal!

Mr. President, I need a damned job! If you're cribbing my sheet, man, you've got hire me as a contractor or something. 'Cause this golden-egg laying goose is about to starve.

Not if the Prez finds DU as addictive as I do.

9. lol, wouldnt that be something

 

if Obama all this time had been an undercover Duer! Maybe he defends himself vigorously and is known as a hard core Obama supporter.
But seriously, I think the odds are slim to none that Obama has ever even browsed DU, DU isn't one of the bigger or more well known political left sites around. Daily KOS, Huffington Post are the ones that come to mind as much more prominent than DU.

10. As long as he doesn't post his position on gay marriage, which would result in him being banned.

"Marriage is between a man and a woman.... God is in the mix".

17. That was my first thought as well.

If Skinner is true to his word then President Obama would be immediately tombstoned.

14. he'd just be a lurker

Stephen King, in the foreward to the Bachman books told a story about how McCartney (or maybe Lennon) said he would like to just walk away from the Beatles and play in an anonymous bar band. King said something like - the public would spot you after about four notes. King tried being anonymous with the Bachman books and did not get very far before speculation swirled around that Bachman = King.

Similarly, if the President registered here with an anonymous username and posted something besides LOL or KNR, his "voice" as it were (not to make an accidental Whitney reference today) would be spotted.

16. So that explains the BO pics. BO should object to Mittens' dog treatment, like this:

For the ‘12 Mittens duration, I am submitting this angry cocker spaniel for use as the representative of all dogs. This pic was in the local paper's Sunday available-for-adoption a few years ago. He was taken by the time I called. He is thoroughly pissed, not, I hope, the reason he ended up in the shelter, but rather for being subjected to the indignity of doggie jail.

19. I know he is because he sends me private DU e-mail all the time

He asks my advice on serious national and international issues. He also asks me for parenting advice.

Oh, wait. I was just imagining all of that. Never mind.
