Barack Obama, the golden-tongued orator, is a totally different person when he cannot read a speech someone wrote for him from a teleprompter. Hot Air.com posted a link to a CNN video of Obama making a statement and answering questions. A sharp Hot Air.com commenter posted the following about the video:
I watched the whole 11:09. I don’t remember a thing he said. All I heard was uh, uh, uh, uh, and uh.
He talks for 4 minutes. I counted 55 uhs.Then he takes questions.
First answer: 10 uhs
Second answer: 27 uhs
Third answer: 16 uhs
Fourth answer: 7 uhs
Final answer: 29 uhs
144 uhs in 11 minutes. Articulate, Uh-bama!
