    i mean really, 17 minutes in response to a woman asking whether more taxes for health care was a wise idea. she said,"we're overtaxed as it is." put a sock in it already, wilya?

    CHARLOTTE - Even by President Obama's loquacious standards, an answer he gave here on health care Friday was a doozy.

    Toward the end of a question-and-answer session with workers at an advanced battery technology manufacturer, a woman named Doris stood to ask the president whether it was a "wise decision to add more taxes to us with the health care" package.

    "We are over-taxed as it is," Doris said bluntly.

    Obama started out feisty. "Well, let's talk about that, because this is an area where there's been just a whole lot of misinformation, and I'm going to have to work hard over the next several months to clean up a lot of the misapprehensions that people have," the president said.

    He then spent the next 17 minutes and 12 seconds lulling the crowd into a daze.....

    Halfway through, an audience member on the riser yawned.

    But Obama wasn't finished. He had a "final point," before starting again with another list -- of three points.....

    It was not evident that he changed any minds at Friday's event. The audience sat politely, but people in the back of the room began to wander off.

    Even Obama seemed to recognize that he had gone on too long. He apologized -- in keeping with the spirit of the moment, not once, but twice. "Boy, that was a long answer. I'm sorry," he said, drawing nervous laughter that sounded somewhat like relief as he wrapped up.

    But, he said: "I hope I answered your question."

    :rofl: even he lost track of wtf he said. :clap2:

    Why can't Obama shut up?

    He is a politician and talking is what they do the most of. Not doing.

    We used to have an employee in our company that would always talk around questions, never really answer them. What we learned quickly is that he did this only to create a smoke screen to hide the fact he didn't really know what he was talking about. He was fired.

    Obama sounded much like this employee in this exchange you provided. If he can't answer the question directly, he talks completely around it until everyone including himself forgets what the question was.
