Not A Member Of The Obama Is A Great Speaker Club

Obama is not a good speaker. I’ll say it again …. B. Hussein Obama is not a good speaker. His cadence is sing song. His phraseology is cliche. The height of his rhetoric is constrained by his Marxism. Obama’s content is vapid and void. Obama’s speeches are perfectly crafted in order to allow anyone of a dozen interpretations as to his meaning, and as such his purpose in speaking is more to conceal his mind than it is to reveal his mind. If Obama’s speech pattern takes on any quality it takes on the quality of “mesmerizing.” Obama’s speeches are perfectly crafted for a people who can not think but who instead are looking for the quality of the experience. The result of an Obama speech is not to make his listener’s think but rather to make them swoon, in the same way that women swooned over Elvis or the Beatles, or in the same way that Germans swooned over Hitler. Obama’s speeches are like the Green Witch’s song in C. S. Lewis’ “The Silver Chair.” Like the Green Witch’s song, Obama’s speech’s are intended to put people, who would otherwise resist, to sleep. Finally, in my book anyone who can’t speak effectively without a teleprompter is not a communicator. Like so much of Obama, the whole “great communicator” thing is smoke and mirrors.

The first advantage that Obama has is that as President he followed a man who would make Buckwheat from the Little Rascals sound eloquent. Secondly, Obama is advantaged by a media that is almost as inarticulate as he is and this monosyllabic media keeps on saying over and over again what a great speaker Obama is. I suppose, that just as in the land of the blind the one eyed man is king, so in the land of the inarticulate the barely articulate is taken for Cicero. The media keeps on swooning over Obama’s speaking ability over and over and so pretty soon most people take it for the truth. Thirdly, Obama is advantaged by his audience. A people who had not experienced generations of being dumbed down would never consider Obama’s ability in speaking to be deserving of anything better than a leading role in the Vermontville Adult community theater. Fourthly, Obama is advantaged by being black. Nobody really believes that if Obama were white people would consider him a great speaker. No, this is a case where we dare not speak the truth for fear of violating the affirmative action code.

  1. “No, this is a case where we dare not speak the truth for fear of violating the affirmative action code.”

    No doubt. Yesterday I had the privileged of being called ethnocentric because I think my husband is weird for pronouncing the “h” in herbs. I am not allowed to think this odd because I am a white American. The woman from England who didn’t understand that we don’t pronounce that letter here, was, however, well within her rights to question my stupidity.

    My husband also told me last time he was in the grocery store he made some folks mad by using the word “negro” when talking to my children about black beans. Never mind the fact that we are teaching them Spanish (as well as Mandarin) but I guess such a word is not PC and therefore if spoken by a white/Hebrew American male it is cause for a war.

  2. You really don’t get it?

    The “paddy wagon” is an ethnic slur implying that the Irish are always drunk and wind up getting arrested and thrown in the back of the “wagon” which is a big van that cops use to arrest riotous drunks on the weekend and then throw them in the tank.

  3. Yes I get that ….

    I don’t get how it has anything to do with the post.

    Never mind ….

    Now I see it is a response to fruitful Momma.

    OK… that’s cleared up.
