Words, words, words! I’m so sick of Obama’s words.

For someone who is supposedly the most adept president at speechifying since FDR, Obama is a bombastic blowhard, whose occasional forays into real speech reveal ugly things about his thinking.  Mark Steyn describes Obama’s linguistic approach:

Like those of many great “thinkers,” words for Barack Obama and his coterie seem to exist mostly in the realm of metaphor rather than as descriptors of actual action actually occurring in anything so humdrum as reality.

And so it is that, even as his bungling administration flounders in the turbulent waters of the Gulf, on the speaker’s podium the president still confidently sails forth deftly steering the ship through the narrow ribbon of sludge between the Scylla of sonorous banality and the Charybdis of gaseous uplift.
