I remember reading a political training manual that had a section that talked about sticking to your talking points no matter what the question. The example was that if your talking points were about reducing government waste and someone asks you about animal control, you say "That's why government needs to stop wasting money on ridiculous things, so that we have more money to spend on important things like animal control."
Well, the Chairman of the Republican National Committee just gave a prime example of sticking to your talking points. His talking points are "Barack Obama is a bad leader." The question? "Why are your poll numbers down so much?"
Watch the hilarity ensue:
