I’ve been saying for years that Obama, off teleprompter, is a terrible speaker. Not just boring, but structurally awful. Turns out that, as it is now, so was it always. Nothing has changed. Without an editor at his side, Obama is not the luminous prose poet who wrote Dreams. He’s a typical Leftist hack writer: turgid, ungrammatical, unfocused, and undisciplined.
UPDATE: Here’s a perfect companion piece about the lost art of oratory, with Obama leading the pack of losers.
