ROBIN BRONK: If you had five minutes in the Oval Office with President Obama, what would you discuss with him? What issue would you like him to know about?
BILL ENGVALL: I would like to know what he was thinking when he and his family were standing in front of those 100,000 people as he took the oath of office. Knowing that he was making history.
RB: If you could give President Obama one piece of advice, what would that be?
BE: Say what you mean and mean what you say.
RB: If you could ask President Obama one question, what would that be?
BE: I am 53 years old and have put my fair share into Social Security. Am I, or, for that matter, are my kids, ever going to see a penny out of that?
RB: Would you ever consider a political career?
BE: Oh yeah, but people wouldn't vote for me because I would run on the common-sense platform, and a lot of people can't deal with that. That is why “Here's Your Sign” became so popular.
