A failure to communicate

On Meet the Press today, Tim Russert asked US Secretary of Education Margaret Spelling whether adding new security measures to university campuses would cost money.

When people speak like this, it means they are not actually trying to communicate. They are just treading conversational water, and trying to give the appearance that they have intelligently answered the question.
