    Signs of the Times News for Sun, 12 Apr 2009



    During the questions and answers with three reporters it was painful to watch. Obama was completely lost, clinging to the tele-prompter, stuttering, I counted Obama utter "uh" over 400 times.

    As you can see the British press is all over Obamas poor speech skills when unscripted, answering simple questions.

    Dude, don't you have anything better to do than count the Wizard of UHS mental pauses?

    Seriously, you need a hobby.

    Obama sounds like an NPR host.

    I worked 12 hours that night, came to the hotel in madrid, turned on the tv and I get three english speaking channels, one is Sky news from England, one is bloomberg, and of course CNN international. I also work the night shift so going out to have some wine was out of the question. Further I had not found this site and was being cheap and did not want to pay 100$ to use the internet in the room for the week.

    So no, I had nothing better to do and its hard to have a hobby on the road.

    Gibbs, my god, I guess Obama cant fire or lose another person. Maybe Obama needs Gibbs so Obama looks good.

    either way I am surprised the libs are not here screaming about bush

    How funny. He was actually carefully trying NOT to blame BushCo who propped up every corporate whore he could find. Where was he when the red flags were being waved?

    LOL! Agreed! My god the NPR commentators sound like the tired "intellectuals" I once ran with...short on even the most basic skills of communication, but loaded with self important nuance!

    NPR is a hoot!
