interminable, windy and not very impressive

This Telegraph writer has reached my point.
His performance at the first press conference in London with Gordon Brown featured moments in which he sparkled - his riff on loving the Queen was a high-point. But most of the serious answers that I listened to were interminable, windy and not very impressive. At points there were pauses so long that it appeared he had simply lost his train of thought.

You see that a lot in the press conferences and in the townhalls he sets up.
And his history is clearly infected with his political prejudices.
"Few people would have predicted that an American President would one day be permitted to speak to an audience like this in Prague. And few would have imagined that the Czech Republic would become a free nation, a member of NATO, and a leader of a united Europe. Those ideas would have been dismissed as dreams". (Not by Ronald Reagan they wouldn't have been, when most of Obama's Democrat friends thought the then US President's robust approach to the Cold War made him a loony on the loose).

Other discussion is his total focus on his own importance.
The author asked a great question:
Is there a computer which churns this stuff out for him?

Of course we know there is.
