"As the most gifted orator of his generation, President Obama finds speechmaking perhaps his most potent political tool."A few well-written campaign speeches aren't enough to cement such a lofty reputation. Considering that one can hear when Obama's reading verses reciting from memory, I wouldn't put him in the class of his predecessors. Ronald Reagan was known to say that he couldn't imagine being president without his acting training. U.S. President Ronnie Reagan had a point.
A truly great orator and great leader can turn on the passion; it's part of charisma. Obama is lacking that magic ingredient. What do you expect from a man who voted party line 96% of the time? That's the sign of a follower, not a leader.
Barack Hussein Obama was cast in the role as United States Presidential candidate, because he was easy to package. He's a Democrat, half-Black who showed he could follow instructions.
There are two questions:
- Who's controlling him?
- Why didn't he get better acting lessons?
