The Left would have you believe that Obama possesses incomparable personal presence. He can’t govern worth a damn but wow, he’s a swell guy. And what a communicator. That’s the narrative anyway. The reality is a wee bit different. Sure, Obama is skilled with delivering a speech or reading remarks from a teleprompter. It is when Obama needs to ad-lib, when he is forced to make cohesive remarks on the fly, that his weakness shows. It’s understandable. The vast majority of communication done by any politician is through prepared remarks, so that presentation style is practiced rigorously. A political speech, although it may be conducted before a live audience, is really a highly choreographed event.

And let’s face it, everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma and they end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs, when, if you, they just gave, you gave them treatment early, and they got some treatment, and ah, a breathalyzer, or an inhalator. I mean, not a breathalyzer, ah…
Obama may be a joke but he is no comedian. He is trained to give speeches not to ad-lib on the fly. Obama is far from eloquent when left on his own. Unfortunately, most of these errors are hidden from the public by the Obama-loving media. During the debates, however, no such conspiracy is possible. Clearly, everyone makes mistakes. Just as obvious is that when you speak as much as a politician the mistakes can add up quickly. Worse, they can be compiled into a list and used against you by conservative bloggers like me….heh, heh.
