He talked for 45 minutes during ABC's "Health Care" infomercial!
It's clear to anyone who has ever dozed through an Obama speech that the man likes the sound of his own voice. He's known for rambling, long winded speechifying even in press conferences.
ABC's all Obama all day long extravaganza Wednesday was no different. Obama answered one question from the handpicked crew of supporters attending the Town Hall style event on health care with a vague monologue that went on for four minutes and thirty three seconds. No doubt leaving many viewers scrambling for the remote or praying for a commercial break.
It's also noteworthy that nowhere in what was billed as a "dialogue" on health care did Obama face any Republican critics. Even critical advertising was banned.
Obama possesses the rare gift of being able to say so much and so little all at the same time. The only question is: when will voters decide they've heard too much?
