What's the point when he completely ignores the questions the American people asked. 18 of the top 20 voted questions were on ending or seriously altering the failed war on drugs. Complete silence on the President's part. He shouldn't pretend he's listening, if all he's going to do is ignore us.
 
I'm not American, but I'm surprised at the ungrateful statements here. Google made it possible for you to ask and your president to reply and explain, AND most important - retains the whole conversation for all to see and ponder. Don't bash the messenger! (Unless you're trying to dissuade them from giving you opportunities like this ever again.)
 
You know, you really are writing nonsense. By giving people a platform to ask questions Google DID make 'the demands of the people' perfectly clear. Exactly that.
 
Well run event. Nicely done in performance, I think it increases the likelihood of a second term.
Though looking into the engineer job-hunting situation was a bit of an overkill, not becoming for a President. He shouldn't have ventured down that path (but I would probably have done the same if I was President, because I would, like the President, be eager to help as well).
 
I wouldn't assume Google picked the questions.
