Barack Wants You, Unless You Did 63 Bad Things

11/13/2008 11:41 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

There's a questionnaire circulating from Barack Obama's peeps that everyone gets if they're up for a Presidential appointment. The short story -- Obama wants all the skeletons out on the table before he nominates anyone.

There are 63 questions prospective nominees must answer. Barack wants to know if the person has sent embarrassing emails, whether that person has been accused of sexual harassment, late in paying child or spousal support. He always wants to know about arrests, and, of course, those pesky housekeepers.

Click to read questionnaire.

This is why McCain's mud slinging didn't soil Obama. He's smart enough to get all the skeletons out of the closet and address them, before anyone can use them against him. The republican's should have done the same thing with Palin. Very smart of Obama.

Good way to avoid surprises down the road.

Most of those questions would be illegal in a regular employment interview.

Glad he is covering all necessary bases. His campaign was dirt free and so should his Administration. I'm sure he'll get a knucklhead or two but he has the class to not turn it into a controversy that the media (TMZ!) loves to cover. Good Luck and God Bless Mr. President!

Maybe he needs to answer all the questions himself. Obama has made so many promises that he can't even begin to fulfill! Soon, all the blacks will simply be calling him out and his name will become, Uncle Tom. Pure and simple!


Scary times for us all!

his campaign was not dirt free...BUT he knows people will be looking at him, so all of the first leaguers are going to have squeaky clean records. You KNOW his closest folks - his "Kitchen Cabinet" - will have enough skeletons to explain. That is, if the press actually does its job instead of blind worship.

The majority of this I can see being justifyed in asking. Avoiding problmes down the road. But I do have a problem with one. #59 Who cares of someone owns or someone in their immediate family owns a gun. Stupid question and by laws governed by each state some do have to be registered and some don't .

Why does it keep saying "question 49" when question 52 asked about the housekeepers. You'd think they would at least check these things.... now they look like they can't even count haha. PROOF READ!

"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government."
"A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury."
"From that moment on, the majority always vote for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship."
"The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years"
"During those 200 years, those nations always progressed through the following sequence:
1. >From bondage to spiritual faith;
2. From spiritual faith to great courage;
3. From courage to liberty;
4. From liberty to abundance;
5. >From abundance to complacency;
6. From complacency to apathy;
7. From apathy to dependence;
8. >From dependence back into bondage"
Professor Joseph Olson of Hemline University School of Law, St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the 2000 Presidential election:
Number of States won by: Democrats: 19 Republicans: 29
Square miles of land won by: Democrats: 580,000 Republicans: 2,427,000
Population of counties won by: Democrats: 127 million Republicans: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Democrats: 13.2 Republicans: 2.1
Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory Republican won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of this great country. Democrat territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in government-owned tenements and living off various forms of government welfare..." Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation's population already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase.
If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders called illegal's and they vote, then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.
