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.

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.
