Hooper_X That man totally used to be a college professor, and it shows in the way he can field a dumbass question and make the questioner not feel like a total dumbass for asking it while also pointing out how the questioner is a dumbass at the same time.
kingarthur That's classy. And I LOVE how the fanatical right wing in this country is being allowed to beat their histrionic, mouth-frothing heads against the wall right now. It's like some political Wing-Chun.
IrishWhiskey I'm mostly giving stars for getting rid of prescreened audiences. Bush and McCain required LOYALTY OATHS in order to get in, while Obama's letting in Hannity fans.
He answers the question. The usual politician thing to do would be to use an obvious applause play the crowd to shout the upstart down. (I paid for that microphone!) But he answers the question, Even the Hannity bitch must have been impressed.
fatatty More than likely she's more sure than ever that he's full of black magic and the anti-christ.
futurebot na, the usual thing is to make a magnanimous show of being big enough to answer the question, I mean come on this is exactly the conventional response to this moment
OH GOD FUTUREBOT THIS RESPONSE WAS SO MUCH BETTER ON VINYL AM I RIGHT
Scrotum H. Vainglorious Bush NEVER had town hall meetings like this. Everyone in attendance were screened with a fine toothed comb so as to not allow anyone with the slightest opposing viewpoint to field him a question that would put him on the defensive. Instead he got softball questions from kids asking him how to protect themselves from terrorists.
Any lingering doubt about my vote for him is GONE!!
sosage What's cool is that Bush Jr. also liked beer. I at least trust that Obama, however, can still drive the country in a straight line after I drink with him (or at least talk me into handing him the keys).
blood_visions I would have voted for Obama just to piss off conservatives. Lucky for me, he's actually gonna be an awesome president
Cena_mark Just more lies. Obama doesn't care about the ethics of his cabinet appointments. Real classy of the audience for booing a woman just for her asking Obama a tough question.
joelkazoo Stuff like this reassures me that I voted for the right person.
