Dr. Bob Basso makes the YouTube videos where he dresses up as founding father Thomas Paine, coming back from the past to warn Americans about their country, got a phone call from President Barack Obama summoning him to the White House.
Paine wrote Common Sense in the 1700′s and Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Congress and the Senate would be well served to find a copy and read it more thoroughly than the pork laden, stimulus bill they signed without reading.
Obama is apparently ticked off over Dr. Basso’s videos asking people to send politicians tea bags and do something about what is happening in our country. Basso’s earlier video, “The Second American Revolution,” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKFKGrmsBDk has 3 million views. His newest video, posted last week as funbobbasso, “We The People Stimulus Package,” shown above already has 1.5 million views.
Basso asks Americans to stand up against Congress and reclaim their republic now, or maybe lose it forever. “Have you become a nation of cowards,” warning people that if they do nothing else, “buy a gun because your going to need it.”
“Wake up, America. While you were playing with the toys of your consumer wealth, you lost much more than your bloated economy of living beyond your means. You lost your representative democracy. Your servants have become your masters. Taxation without representation is tyranny,” he said.
Dr. Basso’s day job is that of a motivational speaker. http://www.bobbasso.com/index.html He is also the author of seven books including, Never Wanted to Set the World on Fire But Now that I’m 50 http://www.amazon.com/Never-Wanted-World-Fire-Maybe/dp/1556223870/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1238351741&sr=8-1 that, “ is a must read for anyone who thinks America is going to hell in a hand basket and would like to run away to an idyllic South Pacific Island like the author.”
Maybe Obama was going to discuss offering him a one way ticket out of America while sipping tea. If nothing else they could trade autograph copies of their books.
Talk show host and conservative political commentator, Jerry Doyle interviews Dr. Basso on a regular basis on his talk show. http://www.jerrydoyle.com/ Dr. Basso was scheduled to appear on the show but canceled after Obama had personally invited him to meet in the White House “to discuss the disturbing nature of the videos,” according to WND.
Doyle you might recall, coined the phrase “Grapefruit Mentality”, defined as the ability for the public to become interested in an object or person just because the media is paying attention to it. The content of Basso’s videos are far more than Grapefruit Mentality.
Dr. Basso was warned by Obama not to go public about the interview and Jerry Doyle’s show also received a call from the administration warning them not to air it. That didn’t deter either of them…. they immediately told everyone what was going on. A spokesperson for Doyle’s show said that Basso promised to provide Doyle with the first exclusive interview after he meets with Obama, provided the invitation still stands after the meeting was leaked to the press.
How nice to get an invitation from the president, except when that same president is trying to censor a private citizen expressing his 1st amendment rights.
