But he is such an eloquent speaker.
Obama could talk about gassing old people and my leg would tingle.

How about trying to debate the topic instead of making broad, sweeping judgments of people?

He's asked a question, and then he goes on and on for minutes saying practically nothing.

You know, I did not vote for our new President, yet I respected him quite a bit for some time.

But lately, he doesn't seem to really say much, and his campaign promises are proven as lies on a daily basis. He's using the same campaign trail type of dialogue and that doesn't work once you are in office.

Americans are afraid as the dwindling economy takes jobs, benefits, and their savings; they want specifics, which he appears to evade at every chance.

Imagine if you actually listened to what he said, maybe you wouldn't be so uninformed about everything.

There's nothing to discuss. It's a TH meeting, he comes out, makes some statements, takes some questions. It usually takes more words to fully explain an answer than to ask the question.

Unless you like your questions answered with buzz words and meaningless sound bite phrases.....

This has to be the mother of all non-topics.

You must be the mother of all naive persons to expect anyone but an Obama sycophant to believe your explanation.

Well, since you asked, I thought anyone with an ounce of logic knew it already. And those with less would catch on pretty quick.
