Pathetic Obama is Worst Public Speaker To Hold Office of President ~ LOL

Obama Loses Place On Teleprompter. Ouch!

Obama speaking ( well sort of ) while visiting President Sarkozy in Strasbourg, France yesterday.

UK Guardian Mocks 'World's Greatest Orator'

The question that flummoxed the great orator

Barack Obama, the World's Greatest Orator (™all news organisations), didn't exactly cover himself in glory when the BBC's political editor Nick Robinson asked him a question about who was to blame for the financial crisis. Normally word perfect, Obama ummed, ahed and waffled for the best part of two and a half minutes. Here, John Crace decodes what he was really thinking ...

Nick Robinson: "A question for you both, if I may. The prime minister has repeatedly blamed the United States of America for causing this crisis. France and Germany both blame Britain and America for causing this crisis. Who is right? And isn't the debate about that at the heart of the debate about what to do now?" Brown immediately swivels to leave Obama in pole position.

There is a four-second delay before Obama starts speaking [THANKS FOR NOTHING, GORDY BABY. REMIND ME TO HANG YOU OUT TO DRY ONE DAY.] Barack Obama: "I, I, would say that, er ...

pause [I HAVEN'T A CLUE] ... if you look at ... pause [WHO IS THIS NICK ROBINSON JERK?] ... the, the sources of this crisis ...

pause [JUST KEEP GOING, BUDDY] ... the United States certainly has some accounting to do with respect to . . . pause [I'M IN WAY TOO DEEP HERE] ... a regulatory system that was inadequate to the massive changes that have taken place in the global financial system ... ......

pause, close eyes [THIS IS GOING TO GO DOWN LIKE A CROCK OF SHIT BACK HOME. HELP]. I think what is also true is that ...

pause [I WANT NICK ROBINSON TO DISAPPEAR] ... here in Great Britain .........

pause [SHIT, GORDY'S THE HOST, DON'T LAND HIM IN IT] ... here in continental Europe ...

pause [DAMN IT, BLAME EVERYONE.] ... around the world. We were seeing the same mismatch between the regulatory regimes that were in place and er ... .....

pause [I'VE LOST MY TRAIN OF THOUGHT AGAIN] ... the highly integrated, er, global capital markets that have emerged ...

pause [I'M REALLY WINGING IT NOW]. So at this point, I'm less interested in ...

pause [YOU] ... identifying blame than fixing the problem. I think we've taken some very aggressive steps in the United States to do so, not just responding to the immediate crisis, ensuring banks are adequately capitalised, er, dealing with the enormous, er ...

pause [WHY DIDN'T I QUIT WHILE I WAS AHEAD?] ... drop-off in demand and contraction that has taken place. More importantly, for the long term, making sure that we've got a set of, er, er, regulations that are up to the task, er, and that includes, er, a number that will be discussed at this summit. I think there's a lot of convergence between all the parties involved about the need, for example, to focus not on the legal form that a particular financial product takes or the institution it emerges from, but rather what's the risk involved, what's the function of this product and how do we regulate that adequately, much more effective coordination, er, between countries so we can, er, anticipate the risks that are involved there. Dealing with the, er, problem of derivatives markets, making sure we have set up systems, er, that can reduce some of the risks there.

So, I actually think ... pause [FANTASTIC. I'VE LOST EVERYONE, INCLUDING MYSELF] ... there's enormous consensus that has emerged in terms of what we need to do now and, er ... pause


Wild Thing's comment......

The media and so many of the columnists made such an enormous deal saying that Obama was such a wonderful speaker, orator, and charismatic that now they have to eat their words. If they are still trying to put this propaganda out there about Obama they look even more the fools that they are.

He can't think on his feet or sitting down, it is almost as though his brain such as it is has dislodged from his mouth. You can tell his brain is searching like mad to find the word listed somewhere in his google-like file in his brain. But his mouth has to move to
not lose the attention of the crowd or interviewer. Like with radio dead air is a bad thing
just as when standing in front of a crowd with a blank look on your face, mouth open and nothing coming out except for the proverbial UH's and Ah' and er's.

He has to learn to speak without it. It's crippling him. If he was such a great community bullyizer and was capable of such great speeches, why does he seem to be just a wind up doll now? He's like a small baby--one of these days, he's going to have to walk on his own.

What an Asshole. It's bad enough, they took so many teleprompters along just so berry wouldn't lose his place and it still happens. Must've been when he was selling out the country and telling everyone the worlds problems are 'Our fault', and that we are disarming nuclearly. This guy is going to get us all killed.

Everyone is saying how smart obama is, such a great orator, why then does he need a teleprompter.

Obama doesn't seem to need a teleprompter when he is trashing America. Those lines just flow.

Lynn, haha yes he is like a wind up doll and I agree too he is depending on it too much and now it is a crutch for him.

Posted by: Wild Thing at April 4, 2009 06:16 PM

Mark,I agree, and I honestly don't think he is very smart. I have to wonder why his school records are closed and no one can see them. What is he hiding? weird.

Tom, yes those he has no problem with.
