I hope you don't mean my OC. Watch the interview on YouTube. That was his actual response.

Being a politician is making people like you.
Doing a pretty good job at that, isn't he?

Yet imagining it in his voice gives me this incredible sense of calming...
#174 to #33 - anon (04/26/2013) [-]
its not really avoiding the question. its just a long version of "yes"

Well you see, it's like this. The potential... for far reaching... ramifications......... that such an incautious... ill considered and ...premature... disclosure might potentiate ...are unpredictably disingenuous... and as such... preclude my ability... to make, a meaningful comment, on such an inherently, volatile... subject, at the present time.

He is answering it, he is saying they think whatever he does is uncool. That is why them getting the same tattoo as them is a deterrent.
User avatar #49 to #33 - Crusader (04/26/2013) [-]
He's not really avoiding the question, he is just being super-specific.
#51 to #49 - breakfastlunch (04/26/2013) [-]
I should rephrase... He's not avoiding the question, but if you look at the question itself and his answer, he does not actually answer what was asked.

Answering questions indirectly is the very essence of political speaking.
Pic unrelated.

Person one: So are you going out this weekend?
Person two: I'm going to the bar on Friday -and Saturday night.

By your reasoning, person two is avoiding the question.

You raise a good point... People these days have flawed logic--This is truly one of the great problems plaguing our nation.  As I have shown in past months, my logic is 47% less flawed than the other candidates' logic.  If we stand together and fight these logical fallacies, America will be a greater, and stronger nation.  I will not allow our country to fall prey to insurgents seeking to undermine our liberties. *sings the national anthem amidst roaring applause*

It's actually closer to "Are you going out this weekend?"
"I told my friends that we should go out this weekend."

The "yes" isn't actually there, but it could be. The same thing with the President's response. He doesn't actually say yes, he says he'll be getting family tattoos if one of his daughter's get one. That doesn't mean they don't think that's cool; hell, his daughters could have laughed their asses off at the comment, thinking he's one cool dad for joking around with them like that, whether he was serious or not. He doesn't say one way or the other, just gives a semi-related story that most people would assume "yes" from, but in fact it could easily be the exact opposite.

He's an extremely talented politician.

I interpreted it as more of like... and anecdotal implying of the yes. Shows more character and personality than a simple, "Yup". In my personal opinion at least

I find it remarkable that even though the question is harmless he still avoids answering it directly.

I'd rather say he's already a step ahead; "Let's not bother with the obvious 'yes' and skip straight to the interesting part"
User avatar #27 to #5 - Yojimbo (04/26/2013) [-]
He responded with a funny answer. As a reporter, I would prefer hearing that as opposed to a plain "Yes." or "No."
User avatar #10 to #5 - gonzoen (04/26/2013) [-]
The way I see it, he actually answered it superbly. His "yes" is implied.
User avatar #16 to #10 - ThpiderMan (04/26/2013) [-]
No doubt, it was answered clearly and succinctly, you just need to be able to put a modicum of effort to understand it.
User avatar #38 to #16 - herpymcderp (04/26/2013) [-]
It took absolutely no effort at all to understand it.
#161 to #16 - anon (04/26/2013) [-]
But the funny thing is that it wasn't answered at all. For all we know his daughters could think that's the coolest thing in the world, or that they didn't want tattoos in the first place and thought it was a really cool answer. He gave an answer that seemed like a yes, but in fact didn't really answer anything at all.
User avatar #270 to #161 - ThpiderMan (04/26/2013) [-]
That's your view, and it is wrong. If you can understand subtext it's obvious.
