President Obama's Notre Dame Speech
    #10354148 - 05/17/09 06:05 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

However you feel about Obama, I really think that he hit this speech out of the ballpark. I was watching it with an old couple who have a "no clinton" sign up on their wall, with Bill Clinton crossed out. They are quite republican... and yet, after watching this speech, they were floored and impressed beyond all means. I love the kind of unity that he promotes and speaks about in this speech, and I think he quickly diffused the abortion position controversy and made the protesters seem pretty dumb rather quickly.

You can watch the video here.

What did you think of it, if you saw it?

> What did you think of it

I liked the part where he said he was going to do away with consensual crimes and legalize drugs.  Oh wait... never mind.  :rolleyes:

(Yeah, he can read a good speech as long as he has a teleprompter telling him what to say.  I just wish there were a bit of substance in the suit to back up his spiffy speeches.  Until he stands up to unjust prohibition laws, I will continue to consider him a bigoted coward that will put people in jail for doing the same thing he did before he became president.  Before anybody goes partisan on me, I consider both Bush Jr. and Billy boy Clinton in the same light.)

what I find interesting is that more people were incarcerated
during the clinton reign for drug crimes than under either of the
Connecticut Texans

It's amazing how often the right repeats this.  Let's analyze this statement:

1.  Obama gives good speeches.
2.  His teleprompter tells him what to say.

I guess there's little debate/controversy about the first part of the statement because the right always says it, so let's analyze the second part, which the right feels the need to include after they say the first part:


a.  Do you think Obama has an opportunity to review/red-line his speeches before he makes them, or do you think he surprised by what shows up on the teleprompter?

b.  Do you think Obama chooses speechwriters to write speeches that match his own beliefs/opinions, or is his speechwriter forced upon him?

c.  Does Obama use the teleprompter the same way as his predecessors, or is there something different that diminishes what he has to say?

Nobody ever gushed big twat juice over what a great speaker Bush was.  Extemporaneously Bush is better than the Great Orator, who can't enough Ums and Uhs.

Yet Bush used teleprompters.  Now the right wants to credit the teleprompter for Obama's speaking success.  I wonder why it only works for Obama?

Do a Google search for Bushisms and tell me you're serious.

Ummmm uh I giggled it and I found a whole lot of media carping about all of his malapropisms.  I also found a whole lot of media mumbling around Obama's cock about how eloquent he was.  Nobody ever waxed poetic about what a great speaker Bush was, but they sure did prostrate themselves before the altar of the all-knowing Teleprompter Fraud.  Bush=nobody said he was Cato: Obama=all the press said he was the most bestest speakuh evuh.  Fraud.

Harry Reid: That speech was phenomenal, Barack,' I told him. And I will never forget his response.

Obama said: "I have a gift, Harry"

So sayeth the conservatives.

Have you ever considered that some people like what he has to say?  Obama's approval rating is 64%.

lets see if his 64% come out to vote in the 2010 elections. Then we can accurately gage the popularity/unpopularity of the president and how strong the Democratic base really is...

I keep hearing about his approval rating being high but when asked about his policies, well, that's a different story.  Never forget that a significant number of those polled can't name the Vice President.

Obamma is one of the biggest frauds we have elected to date, everyone who voted for him should be executed for being so stupid. The amount of money he just wasted could have given us each $425k and that would have fixed the economy yet this POS gave it to the rich instead. He is the most socialist voice in the senate, he should have been put to death for treason, not elected as president. People like him are the single worst thing to happen to the country...it isn't progress that is for sure...and the change he promised...all lies, just like everything else he said...so ya I am mad and hate that black piece of shit. After all he played the race card to win it...
