Obama Offers Up Telling 17-Minute Non-Answer to Question At Town Hall

While either touting his latest economy-killing policy proposal or still doing his 0bamacare victory lap, President Obama hosted a town-hall meeting while visiting the North Carolina facilities of battery-manufacturer Celgard last week and gave an earful.

“We are overtaxed 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 [emphasis mine- NANESB!], 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.
OK, I'm sure there's all sorts of video and audio of Obama rambling on and on, but come on now. Seventeen minutes of Obama speaking is seventeen precious minutes of my life that I'm never getting back.

But the most telling statement was the preamble to his prolonged ramble, mercifully towards the beginning. He is basically telling this Doris, who like 99% of everybody else in this country is concerned about the economy, her job security and personal finances, that the very idea that she and others are overtaxed is 'just a whole lot of misinformation'.

This seems to be the proverbial pachyderm in the room that alot of pundits have overlooked- the President of the United States basically just told Americans concerned about the economy and more taxes 'tough shit'. Their fears are unfounded, if not outright fabrications is how he started out his prolonged non-answer.....Lord knows what else he went off about for the remaining 16 minutes and thirty seconds.

Additionally, the visit to Celgard might've been an attempt to either try and sugarcoat the mismanaged and ill-gotten Stimulus money- Celgard was a recipient of $49 Million in Stimulus funds- or resume his push for the ruinous Cap & Trade legislation that's already passed the House last year. The President described Celgard as an example of providing 'green jobs' to the local economy.
