Got a question for the President? You know you do.

Last night, the usual suspects from CNN, NBC, ABC and CBS got to ask questions of the President — again. However, the White House isn’t limiting questions to the press types who squeeze into the East Room. Their questions usually don’t reflect reality. So, the White House has opened it up at Open For Questions. From the website, we’re told Obama will be answering some of the questions himself:

We invite you to participate in our community-moderated online town hall. Submit your own question about the economy and vote on submissions from others. We also encourage you to include a link to a video of yourself asking your question (ideally 30 seconds or less), but text submissions are all you need. Come back on Thursday to watch the President answer some of the most popular submissions live at WhiteHouse.gov.

Submit your question or video — or vote for the ones you want answered. You know these questions will be better and more pertinent than what the talking heads come up with. The past couple times I’ve gone to the White House press conferences, we got some great suggestions for questions. Send them directly to Obama.
