Obamateurism of the Day
(FROM: Hot Air)
Even though I’m a conservative, I always saw the humor in David Letterman’s Bush-era gag, “Great Moments in Presidential Speeches.” After all, Bush’s verbal difficulties were apparent regardless of political ideology, and even on these pages I often lamented the former president’s failure to adequately and articulately convey the conservative message (or, in the case of most of his second term, actually practice it).
Watching this supposedly great orator, Barack Obama, flounder without technological assistance is for the very same reason turning out to be a guilty pleasure. And while great outlets like his TelePrompTer’s own Web blog–easily the best new Internet outlet, hands down–have already surfaced, I only hope that we may see more public acknowledgment of this man’s shortcomings.
Of course, I won’t hold my breath.
