On that point, it's amusing Obama is so disengaged that he delegates speech-writing to the point that he doesn't even read them beforehand. It boggles the mind as to how much more of his agenda he could achieve with more of a work ethic. Reagan was a workaholic who always worked on his speeches along with speechwriters. Overall, I'm glad that Obama is so lazy when he's not working on winning elections. Think of the damage he could do if he actually worked at passing bills. However, he's probably a more engaged father than Reagan was. Our consolation prize is that he's nowhere near as effective as he could be at passing his extremely damaging agenda if he merely applied himself.
It’s more than lazy. If I were a President, why would I ever want to commit myself in public to a speech I hadn’t even vetted?
