    Are there still folks here that think Obama writes his speeches?

    Do you think he has the time to do this between all of the fundraisers, appearances on "The View", and golf outings?

    The other day at the White House correspondent dinner he told a joke using a popular teen icon [Snookie] as part of the punchline.

    On The View one of the ladies asked him yesterday if he was a Snookie fan and Obama said he didn't know who snookie was. Everyone on the couch seemed to know who Jersey Shore Snookie was except the President who had used her name in the joke not long ago.

    Going back and watching the video of him telling the joke gives one the impression he was just reading it even more in retrospect.

    Now this may be a silly point that I have to make but I get a little tired of the fawning adoration this guy gets and it was especially evident on The View. If Joy Behar could give Obama a BJ on that couch it appeared she would if given half a chance.

    Many times I've seen people here say Obama writes his own speeches. To be honest there are serious questions about whether or not he even wrote his own books much less his speeches.

    I've never thought Obama wrote his own speeches, nor do I think he wrote all or most of his books.

    Going on The View (looking to boost his approval rating and of course looking for votes for his party) and blowing off the 100 Anniversary for The Boy Scouts of America left me with yet another sour taste in my mouth.

    His attempt at looking cool and funny, all the while insulting, is really growing old.

    I figure that's all it is.

    He gets in a group of suckups and he feels right at home.

    I feel uncomfortable in those types of situations.

    Getting "really sick" of the adoration he receives sounds an awful lot like jealousy, to me.

    Spare me creating a thread based solely on The President of the United States' speech-writers and TV appearances.

    Then you don't know me very well.

    Nothing about him makes me jealous.

    There's plenty of other threads.

    You can always leave.

    I hate to break it to you, but presidents don't write their own speeches. And Jay Leno doesn't write his own comedy.
