I've never heard anyone who can talk as much as Obama and yet say so little. I watched his so-called press conference last night and the man must love to hear himself. He rambles on and on for so long that when he's finished, I've forgotten what the question was.

Listening to our not-so-articulate president, I'm reminded of something I did while still an undergraduate many years ago. I had to take a test in one of my courses - an essay test. I didn't know the answer to one of the questions, so I just started writing. I wrote about anything and everything I could think of that was even vaguely related to the question. When I got the test back, the professor had written next to my answer: "What you said is true, but you didn't answer the question". I would just love to have one of the reporters say that to Obama (and several other politicians I can think of).

What is the appeal of this man? It escapes me. He strikes me as cold, aloof, narcissistic, and egomaniacal. He has a lot of style, but look below the surface. There seems to be little there of substance.

Is it just me, or does it sometimes seem that the world is being turned upside down? Things that were once held dear are being thrown out like yesterday's garbage.

I'm sick of sitting by and just watching. I'm going to speak my mind on this blog and political correctness be damned! I fear we're heading toward either tyranny or anarchy, neither of which is desirable and I'm looking for some signs of sanity out there.

I welcome comments and while I'm not into being politically correct, please don't be hateful or obscene in your comments. Other than that, fire away!
