"Words matter; details do not"

From Andrea Tantaros:

Obama Fails to Make the Sale

Though “words matter” to President Obama, details don’t.

Last night Obama delivered a live press conference that came after a week of bizarre behavior, ranging from inappropriate jokes on “The Tonight Show” and delayed outrage over executive bonuses. America is eagerly waiting for President Obama to make his case, but once again, there were no answers.

After Wednesday night’s prime time press conference , one thing is clear: Obama has his Bachelors, Masters and doctorate in persistent ambiguity. He dodged questions from the press on how exactly he’ll cut the deficit by increasing spending. He ducked the issue of whether his policies will result in massive inflation. And he danced around the fact that his budget will double the national debt in 5 years and triple it in ten years.


The only question of any substance was from Ed Henry, and that got a Chikaga wise-ass slapdown. Very nice, Mr. President.

Most notable was his verbal word orgy when it came to “investments.” We all know that is liberal-speak for spending. In fact, I use the term investment every time I try to justify a shoe purchase at Bloomingdale’s. Note: the last person to overuse the term “investment” was Bernie Madoff.

Well...we can always influence national policy via the Obama regime's new and highly reliable "Open for questions".
