What if Obama had to answer a hard question????

President Obama Gives 17-Minute, 2500 Word Answer to Woman Who Says "We Are Overtaxed"
He rambles, stumbles, and fills the air with "here's the point," without ever really making the point.

Of course, the above video is only Part 1 of his answer to a single question. He goes on from there:

Here's part three of the speech in case who are still following along with what he's saying:

  • Now ladies, you know the real blame lies with the teleprompter! If he had shown up for work that day this wouldn't have happened!

    People made fun of Bush and his speaking "missteps" but Obama takes the cake.

    IDK, maybe Obama thinks if he talks long and in cirlces people will either become confused or forget the question.

  • All in all, you have the fact that Obama cannot answer a simple question about the tax burden facing America. Then there is the massive debt he is stacking up and the newly passed unconstitutional health care bill that will add even more taxes and debt. Oh wait... Obama's newly established entitlement program will be "different" than all those other big-government entitlement programs... it will be efficient, streamlined, run underbudget, and not be corrupt. How quickly I forget.

  • Obviously this WAS a hard question!! LOL The easy questions are answered "stupidly!!" ;o)

  • This is the VERY reason why I will never WATCH him speak. I would much rather READ the transcripts, and see WHAT he actually says--which, is never much, if anything, and it saves me about 90% of the time I would have wasted watching him try to speak! And people gave Bush a hard time! LOL :o)

    I think if his ardent supporters did the same, and actually READ what he said, they too, would be scratching their heads saying WTF?!

  • He isn't such the great orator when asked a question with no prewritten answer. That was obvious during the campaign if people had paid attention beyond "hope and change".

  • How come we choose from just two people to run for president and over fifty for Miss America?

  • He couldn't answer it. It was impromptu. He doesn't have an original thought. He just gives the prepared answers of his handlers. When he tries to be spontaneous you get the to to to, if if if, you you you,......... uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, and 17 minutes of double speak. Thank you George Orwell of giving us the term decades before we actually need it to describe the speach of our government.
