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.

Guy better grow eyes on the back of his head.

I guess he didn’t get the memo that decent will NOT be tolerated under this administration and is going anyway. Poor brave fool.

Now he's using the office to intimidate and bad mouth critics.

A few more months of power consolidation and he'll just make people disappear.

"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . ."

Ft. Marcy park anyone?

Or he gets back and his videos are super happy go lucky and everything is fine.

Or they talk, Obama kind of listens (that's what the teleprompter says...make eye contact with speaker, listen, nod head, now say "umhhmm", glace left quickly, now look at speaker's eyes again, now nod....)

After the guy explains his position in what I hope will be a kind and very well thought out manner Obama says they want him focus his energy on specific issues.......

See, I think they will use this guy and he might not even realize he's being used. That's all. A little Democratic ninjitsu of the mind.

I made a joke a few weeks ago about how the Obama administration could be petty enough to have a live Televised rebuttal to some everyday person's negative comment.

holy shit i was right.

Seriously, what says he HAS to go to the White House to discuss anything?


he goes and tells Barry to start listening to the will of the American people or you can wait another year or so for the armed revolt, it's your choice, Mr. President. this meeting is over.....he walk s out of the white house....

I love how most of you clowns make fun of a guy who has had the balls to, at least, do something about our current debacle. I hope there are another 75 million Bob Bassos ready to stand up for liberty and tell the truth. This is the best way to get the idiots from power in 2010/2012. May the story be told from sea to shining sea.

This is major news....

We need to all contact Fox, etc. and tell them to cover this...

It is easy to have someone disappear, if no one is watching. Make people watch.

I predict Obama's going to "Make him an offer he can't refuse"

I'd love nothing more than to have him put out a post meeting "hit piece" on Dear Leaders plans.

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/ .

Unconfirmed report....

So.... where did this report come from?



I'm calling BS until we get some actual proof.

He should have the full support of all citizens and the message about meeting should be published on Fox News to protect him
