  • Danielle,

    that era is just a bit of an anomaly

    Oh, I think Clinton was a badass speaker too. By 'era' I'm just talking about the latest dude. Seven-plus years is a long enough goddamned time to listen to the dubious vocal stylings of George W. Bush.

  • Kyle Matthews,

    The daily show last night had the funniest clip of Bush talking about the economy, and the reasons why it's gone belly-up. He basically listed all the crap that has happened while he's been in office. The look on Jon Stewart's face as classic. His comment was "I've been paying attention, and even I don't remember your Presidency being that bad."

    It can't be too soon for Bush _and_ whoever cuts and pastes his speeches together to shuffle off somewhere else.

  • Danielle,

    Obama's chief speech writer, is Jon Favreau.

    I just read in Newsweek that Obama wrote the speech himself. (I'm sure Favreau helped him, but still... pretty impressive.)

  • Neil Morrison,

    I just read in Newsweek that Obama wrote the speech himself.

    It had so much personal experience in it I think he was the only one that could do the job. A speech writer no matter how good would have introduced a few false notes and he had to nail this one.
