Nobama


Power Line continues to point out defects in Nobama's ability to interact with the press unless he has scripted answers. If you haven't been to Power Line, check it out. If you have been there, I'm preaching to the choir. Power Line addressed two of Obama's faults. The first one dealt with his inability to be one who can answer unexpected questions.
During a stop at a McCain campaign event in New Hampshire last November, a New York Times reporter who had been covering the various candidates for months told me that McCain had answered more questions from reporters in the preceding two hours on his bus than Clinton, Obama, and Romney had answered during the entire campaign. I don't know whether Clinton and Romney became more willing to answer reporters' questions during the campaign season (in Hillary's case, I think not).
Power Line then explores how Obama has doubled down on his tire pressure misinformation BS. The fallacies behind it are also revealing to Obama's understanding of energy needs and consumption, not to mention the impact on who have to work for a living. In his own words, describing voters in Pennsylvania Obama stated to a private, elite gathering in San Fransico: "They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."
