Here is an outstanding example of a politician dodging and avoiding a question from a TV talking head. Notice the use of a wide smile to help in the avoidance.

Why politicians, if that not a trend here at C-D? For example, I almost never get direct answers from you in these forums.

Umm, what about Obama and his 57 states? Rev. Wright anyone?

That Obama goofed up and uttered 57 states, is now a question? And what about Rev Wright?

At least we know the right's chosen and accepted method of avoidance is "Well, I don't remember" Bill Clinton should've taken it to heart, he could've saved himself a whole bunch of trouble had he just developed a more selective memory.

I am wondering when someone will decide it is time to say something specifically about Nasty Nancy's methods. Of course, all these lefties are doing a great job of deflecting and should be commended on it.

I guess the OP takes lessons on not answering questions.

Such as in a previous thread as to why US history should be revised to exclude anything that offends him .

How about saying some one "doesn't get it" when they point out the irony of a person who requires Medicare and Social Security in order to pay their bills and live, then constantly harps on trying to get rid of it.

If you want to take some one to task for a behavior you don't like, don't be doing the same thing.

You're guilty of that. No? (That is a question)
