YouTube star summoned to White House?
Promises radio talk show first interview afterwards

The man who created two phenomenally successful "We The People" YouTube videos urging Americans to stand up against Congress and reclaim their republic now – or perhaps lose it forever – reportedly has been summoned to the White House by President Obama to discuss the subject matter of the short films.

Bob Basso, who posts videos under the name funbobbasso on YouTube, has created videos in which he portrays Thomas Paine, author of the "Common Sense" pamphlet that made the case for independence during the American Revolution.

Basso, whose website offers his services as a motivational speaker, uses the YouTube presentations to condemn "non-representing representatives" and warns, "Only when they feel the almighty wrath of 'We The People' marching in the streets from California to New York shouting 'We're mad as hell and we want our country back' will they get the message they work for you."

He was scheduled this week to appear on the "Jerry Doyle Show" when he told the radio host that Obama had personally invited him to meet in the White House "to discuss the disturbing nature of the videos."

According to a spokesman for Doyle's show, at the time when Basso was supposed to be calling in for the show, he was unavailable. Basso reached the show several hours later, explaining he had been flooded by media calls and literally was unable to call out.

The result, the spokesman said, was 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.

The spokesman said information about the meeting has not been made public, and show producers are waiting to see what develops. A WND message left for Basso was not immediately returned.

The Doyle show reaches about 3 million listeners each week, according to Talkers Magazine, and is the fastest growing show in Talk Radio Network Enterprises' history with more than 240 stations.

In his second video, which has been seen more than 1.1 million times, Basso challenges people to let Congress know their displeasure by sending tea bags. It is embedded here:



He criticizes Congress for approving the "largest spending bill in history without reading it" and criticizes American citizens, because "you did nothing."

He raises the issue of billions of dollars for benefits for illegal aliens, the exportation of U.S. jobs overseas and others.

"If your self-serving Congress were a business they'd all be in jail now," he said.

"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.

He's equally unhappy with Americans in the first video, embedded here:




In that piece he warns of the problem of supporting the rest of the world while America needs to be rebuilt.

Referring to "progressives," he said, "We had another word in 1776. We called them traitors."

Basso is the author of the best-selling book "This Job Should Be Fun" along with 10 other books, including "Lighten Up Corporate America!"

A former award winning news director for NBC TV and visiting professor at UCLA, Basso has a Ph.D in communications.

Doyle's distinctive repertoire includes former Wall Street insider, TV star and jet pilot. He has starred in many made-for-TV movies, but is best known as the character Michael Garibaldi on the Emmy winning Sci-fi television series "Babylon 5," which ran for five years.

A YouTube video by actor Bob Basso portraying a modern day Thomas Paine is sweeping this country. Not since "I want my country back" has something so pro-American, so red white and blue, so revolutionary, taken this country by storm.

It calls for the 2nd American Revolution, and that apparently has Obama worried. Unconfirmed reports say that the Obama White House has contacted Basso and told him they would like to "meet" with him, and until then, they would prefer he not discuss the video in the media. Again this is an unconfirmed report.

Please watch this reminder of what our responsibility as a citizen of this country should be. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKFKGrmsBDk

And to the new administration, just a reminder, we still have freedom of speech. You haven't taxed us or jailed us out of that...yet.

Tell me your thoughts on Bob Basso's performance. A Patriot or Subversive?

Clearly I believe he is a patriotic American.

And just in case you are a product of the public schools and never learned about Thomas Paine, please read about the Father of the American Revolution who wrote the phrase "These are the times that try men's souls" at http://www.ushistory.org/PAINE/ .

Catching on or not he's about to have dinner with the devil and it will be interesting to see how his stance is changed afterwards. My bet is that a substantial bribe will be proffered...

Ive been called a liberal and a democrat but how is that possible when i supported ron paul and agree 100% with what this man is saying? I do want america back as the worlds most powerful AND respected country, almost makes me tear up what has happened to our country. Between our own governments stupidity, corporations selling out the american worker and being invaded by the mexican people this country is being destroyed.

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.

haha Quite the contrary! i wasnt saying they were great, more like they are pieces of shit commies but are moving up just as we did and before we know it they will be able to overcome us if we give them the chance. I think its ignorant to take what we got for granted and be cocky about what we have which is what this guy is talking about.

He will be executed by the government. Watch.
At the very least he will pull the videos and shut down his website after they "talk"
to him.
That is the easiest two ways to get rid of him as he is ruffling feathers.

I'd be nervous anytime I got an "invite" to meet with Obama at the White House. I bet he takes everything down and changes his tune.

I sincerely hope he sticks to his principles. There are so few good people these days for one to cave.

I hope he does too. I'd love to see more of his messages and maybe even a couple videos hit mainstream media.

The outcome should be interesting. He should dress in character and use the words of our founding fathers against the man that wishes they'd have never existed in the first place.

If I were this guy i'd be very careful about crossing the street or driving anywhere. You just never know when an "accident" will occur.

i doubt that his videos will come down or anything like that. that would cause a huge uproar that the obama administration doesn't want to deal with.

Good for him! I hope he puts it to the messiah. I would love to see their "talks" televised. I think Osama is too pussy to do that though. He won't be able to use his teleprompters and that would fuck him up.
