Who is Al Gore's Speech Coach?

Posted on 09/24/2002 1:37:07 PM PDT by ml/nj

Today, while I was listening to Rush play tapes of Al Gore's speech yesterday, I started wondering if Al Gore really always spoke like Forest Gump. Really! If you listen, it sounds like he has to rest in between syllables whenever he uses a word with more than two syllables.

I cannot recall how Gore sounded back in the 80's e.g., but this is a guy who grew up in Washington DC, and then went to Harvard. His father was a Senator. I don't really recall Gore Sr., but my guess is that he went along with the prevailing wisdom that a politician should sound educated. If he thought his son had any sort of speech problem, I'm sure he would have gotten a coach for Al Jr.

And the DNC? Didn't they pay big bucks to some babe to advise Gore Jr. on how to dress. I'm sure they also provided him with a speech coach, and he probably still has one.

All of this lead me to the conclusion the Gore is intentionally trying to sound like Forest (but he either forgot, and just cannot duplicate, the down home wisdom). The question is: why?

My own guess is that the Democrats think they can win elections if they lock up 90% of the voters with below average intelligence, and Gore thinks that the Gump routine is his path to those voters. He just can't be that stupid, can he?

Is it me or does he seem to lisp more? I am seeing Gore getting more and more tv coverage as is that Christopher Reeve, who spooks me with all of the makeup they put on him.

Now you know why the government schools, run by that auxiliary to the Democrat Party, the National Education Association, has become so successful at graduating ignorant and illiterate people from its system.

During the election it was reported that he was doing this to appeal to the homosexual crowd. I can't verify it but I remember reading it in 2000.

I like when Gore spoke in Kingfish/Sharpton voice to the NAACP. That's was the best!

(Can I get an "Amen?")

Don't forget that his core supporters are complete idiots. It would be impossible for them to understand him if he didn't speak really slowly.

Too bad his speech coach wasn't Hubert Humphrey.

He makes my hair hurt when I hear him speak and I'm bald. Good grief, hasn't anyone from his team informed him how silly he sounds? I was watching C-Span this morning and was shocked at the number of people who actually thought his speech was good. It's scarey out there!

I think he's trying to impersonate a certain Texan. He tried to be Clinton, he tried to be Reagan, and so on and so on. Clearly he either hates himself OR believes the people really are stupid. Methinks it's both.

I think Gore is dumber than he lets on. Look at some of his unscripted moments, like failing to recognize a bust of Jefferson. Or his interpretation of the American motto, "e pluribus unum". For Algore, that was, "out of one, many". Or his famous, and staged, photo of him practicing safe weapons handling with his M-16. All of those were unscripted Gore moments.

He's the son of a wealthy and corrupt senator, and was told from day one that his destiny was to be President. The Gores have hired a lot of flunkies to tell him all the time how smart he is, and try to coach him for public appearances. In reality, he really is as dumb as a box of rocks. All the signs are there.

The man who would be king displays a wrong example of gun safety.

He's a failed presidential candidate who was the namesake son of a failed presidential also-ran (pappa Albert Gore Senior ran for the Rat ticket but lost out and his fellow Tennessee Senator Estes Kefauver got the VP nomination secure his lockout).

This goofball (Gore) is supposed to speak in my town (walking distance away) in 30 minutes. I halfway want to hear what he (tries to) say, and would really like to Freep him, but would not want to be seen at the event if I did the former and probably would get fired if I did the latter.

I agree. He is truly stupid. But the dem party only needs a figurehead. They can create election fraud & that's all they need. And the Pubbies just stand around watching it happen & when they lose they will bitch a day or so then go back to the same ole---like with the federal judgeships. It's all part of this "Two-Party Caretl" that has most of you snookered in. Maybe some day you will see the tea leaves.

HHH came to our town during the '64 campaign, so I dropped by and listened to his speech. Tremendous speaker. He could take a subject of NOTHING and make it into an hourlong inspirational speech.

Right on with your response #24.

In my opinion, Gore is painful to listen to because he is contrived. People who are naturally stiff, wooden and boring at least come off as naturally stiff, wooden and boring. Even that would have a certain charm. Gore comes off so poorly because everything he does is orchestrated. His cadence isn't in synch with his body movements, and there is no passion or sincerity in his recited words.

Gore even orchestrated a photo op at a fair one time. Switched the ribbons on the cattle, so he could be photographed with the winner. (If the skeptics out there want documentation, I will find it. Working from memory right now.)

Even Gore's strongest defenders say that if you really knew him, he is funny and relaxed. So, why do we see an unfunny and unrelaxed Gore in public? Because he is trying to be something he isn't.

He is trying to be Presidential material.

I was thinking as I was listening to a replay of his speech, does it seem his 'southern' accent is more pronounced these days then when he was VP? Like he is gonna be a good ol' boy?
