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.
