    Obamas is asked at a town hall meeting if it is wise to raise taxes on the populace during such hard economic times. It then takes him 17 tongue tied minutes to not answer the question.

    He rambles using 2500 words using every talking point in existence to justify Obamacare yet does not address the ladys question.

    Now on to cap and trade, the largest regressive tax in US history!!

    I suppose so. If the lady didn't like it, she needn't vote for him in the next election. It's all just retail politics. Sometimes he gives good answers. Sometimes he fumbles it a bit. Par for the course for politicians.

    I would also love to tongue tie the President. I would get up and ask what his vision of a limited government is that was talked of by the Founding Fathers.

    Now that would be entertainment!! I'm guessing he would need at least an hour.

    Sometimes he gives good answers. Sometimes he fumbles it a bit. Maybe you'd get a good one.

    But if this were "W" guess what the response would be. He would be called a babbling bafoon, but since it is the anointed one, we just say he had a bad hair day and leave it at that.

    'W' had a tendency to make spectacular gaffs on a regular basis, so the label of babbling baffoon is quite correct. You have found one video of the 'annointed one' blathering, i think it's just fair to call it a 'bad hair day'. If the blathering happens on a more regular basis we may have to change the labels we use.

    Not true, Obama does this 3000% of the time.

    You babble on like a school girl fear-mongering about your fantasy 'statist' menace and we still read your posts. (Many of us would recommend a good psychiatrist but we still listen.) In 6 or so years when Obama leaves office and jack-booted thugs have not hauled you off to a rehabilitation camp you can find a new boogeyman and start all over again (tho I doubt the new one will be half as entertaining.) Consider yourself fortunate to living in the time of the new 'Reagan.'
