Ever Notice How Michelle and Barack Have the Same Campaign Trail Stutter?...Check it out....

Michelle Obama stutters. She does not have a stutter. She stutters on purpose. “I-I-I, I’ve seen it in our men and women in uniform.” “Fr-from the young person with so much promise.” “And-and, even as a kid…”

It is a studied stutter, deployed in order to build sincerity. It is not so much a rhetorical device as an acting device. The same could be said for the presentation of almost all political convention speeches. And it is, at its core, sad.

And if you’ve listened to Barack at all over the years, you’d know he has the same thing. Don’t believe us? Here is a side-by-side example:


But the similarities don’t end there. Viewers also may have noticed that Michelle uses very familiar hand gestures to Barack:

And in what was perhaps the strongest resemblance, that Michelle Obama used the words “I” and “me” a staggering number of times. She used the two words 83 times in her 25-minute speech, or roughly 3 times a minute.

Her husband is famous for a similarly self-centered rhetorical style. In a 25-minute speech in July, for instance, Obama referred to himself 117 times, according to CNS News. Mathematically, this means the president used the words “I” or “me” roughly 13.09 seconds.

Here is a montage of the two:


Wild Thing's comment............

I can't stand either of them. They are both disgusting with their lies, threats from both of them and their hate for our country.

It's all practiced for the audience they're addressing. You won't hear that when they're speaking in front of their wealthy liberal donors which is always done in private.
