Reporting from Washington A president governs in prose, but every now and then some poetry slips through.

Speaking in West Virginia after an explosion killed 29 coal miners, President Obama talked about the victims: "Most days they would emerge from the dark mine, squinting at the light. Most days, they would emerge, sweaty, dirty, dusted with coal. Most days, they would come home. Most days, but not that day."

If Obama was the answer-—that must have been one stupid question.

It’s all about the teleprompter. Barry and the LA Times believe that if only the teleprompter text is mawkish enough all of the countries ills will be healed and Barry’s popularity will skyrocket.

Bunch of delusional liberal KIDS who have not held a real and productive job in their lives are writing speeches full of empty rhetoric and totally detached from reality, all rainbow and unicorns, nothing real, nothing effective, nothing productive.

So which of the writers wrote Obama’s ‘shout out’ comments immediately after the military base shootings?

I wonder, what would Obama really sound like if he didn’t have writers. Bush’s speeches didn’t sound like someone nicer wrote them.

OMG Axelrod is trying to blame the extremely bizarre ceremony on the speech writer!

Frankel brushes off the critique. He describes an Obama speech as a reasoned argument that hangs together from start to finish. Points build on one another in logical sequence.

----------------------------

They don't call Zer0 Zer0 for nothing.

Obama delivers remarks-2sm

Barry: 'See, I ended the war, give me my due!'

What a P.O.S. PUTZ!

I wonder if he wrote the speech that Obama gave in Russia about meeting his wife, Michele, at college?

If Obama is so superior, so much smarter than anyone else, hes written 2 books, a so called college professor (lecturer) has won aNobel Peace prize —why does someone of his calibur need a speech writer. Obama is an imposter

The do not get the fact that is is not his speeches. It is Obamas actions and polices he advocates. We are not dumb and can read between the lines ad see what his polices really mean to us.
