    A very odd and "off" public appearance by the president yesterday...

    Obama’s Weak and Wandering Economic Commentary

    This week President Obama gave a brief, halting, and clearly uncomfortable attempt to assure Americans that the economy was still recovering, leaving many to wonder what is wrong with this president.

    ...What is wrong with President Obama?

    This was not the appearance of a man just returned from 10 days in the multi-millionaires paradise of Martha’s Vineyard. The president’s appearance is discomforting. He has gone from lean to terribly thin. His shirt hangs on him, the lines upon his face visibly deeper, the fingers of his hands when not hidden from view, appearing like bony caricatures, attached to slight, feminine wrists. The once booming campaign trail voice now deflated, worn, a whisper of a man losing the fight to identify his own ability in managing the job of President of the United States.

    He was never fit to be President from the very beginning, and he still isn't. He's just a community organizer in way over his head. I see a bad ending for him and his Presidency. Well... his Presidency is about as bad it gets already.

    You may be right. I am of course no fan of the Obama White House, but even I was shocked at his appearance and performance yesterday. He looked absolutely deflated and lost.

    Obama spoke of the economy, but few if any, were actually listening. He repeated that it took ten years for the collapse to develop, and so it would take longer to recover. He placed blame on Republicans. He promised to keep fighting to try and solve the economic woes of the nation. Then the president issued a terse “thank you”, turned himself away from the camera, and made his way back inside the safety of the White House – shoulders slumped, eyes looking to the ground.

    you mean this one below? where he pretends to have an audio problem, which was really his TelePrompter had blown up and he had to read this economic lackluster uninformative dishwater from a book becasue he could not speak off hand on a meeting he had 2 hours earlier that day?

    He cannot speak to the economy with any authority/sense because he has no idea what that is and how it works. In fact, he cannot speak extemporaneously on any topic, he needs his TelePrompter and canned speeches...this should be I think evident to just about anyone by now.

    hes all front.

    Presidents age quickly and with all this spinning I'm afraid Obama is going to look like "Famous Amos" by the time he leaves office.

    He is starting to realize that his book learning is totally difference that actual life experience.
    Sounds good on paper but is'nt working in the real world. Many of well educated book learners have had a hard time dealing with this issue.
    Reality hits them very hard.

    Yes! That is the one - Obama appears so tired, and be it teleprompter issue or sound issue or whatever, he is clearly out of sorts here. And toward the end he just shambles off utterly defeated in appearance.

    The guy appears to be falling apart before our eyes. I wouldn't wish that on anyone - even a politician I find much to disagree with...

    I've seen numerous clips of his interview with Brian Williams over the past couple of days, and his complete lack of progress in the realm of extemporaneous speaking is astonishing.

    Uhhh...blame Bush....errr....look at the ground for an answer....aaaaaannnnnnd...blame republicans....uuuhhhhh....

    He never ran a business, never had a job where he had bottom line responsibility, and except for his ghost written autobiographies, has never released a single scrap of paper of any of his written work.

    What made anyone think he was qualified to begin with?

    Hope? Change?
