The Beatles-All You Need Is Love

If you have ever been a salesman or saleswoman, you will no doubt have had the experience of attending a presentation given by a motivational speaker. 

Chris Farley – Motivational Speaker

While you are listening to the speaker you are usually pumped up or inspired.

Once you go home, the magic of the moment’s motivational message fast wears off.

Barack Obama reminds me of a motivational speaker.

When Barack is glued to podium reading his motivational speech from the teleprompter, he is at his best.

 Super Tuesday Speech

However, I am not impressed with Obama for many of the same reason expressed below.

Andy Martin says Barack Obama is the “teleprompter” candidate”

“…The prompter tells me a lot about Obama (sort of like a doctor diagnosing the patient, long-distance in this case). First, Obama was probably the last to speak Thursday night because he had people writing his speech. Second, and more importantly, he did not write his speech. Finally, someone wrote his words for him.

The teleprompter incident also explains for me a disconnect that some in the media have legitimately observed: that Obama delivers “great” speeches but does poorly in debates. Why? Because when he doesn’t have people to write for him in a debate, his own words end up faltering. And so, Obama can deliver a speech, but he can’t compose one on the fly. His words are someone else’s.  …”

“…The bottom line: Obama is scripted, not spontaneous; he is an insecure speaker, not a confident one. His words are not his own. And these weaknesses are evident when he is forced to participate in the debate format. He cannot hold his own with truly confident candidates who deliver their own words, not someone else’s. Like so much about Obama that we don’t know, he is really a paper mache caricature, a Potemkin candidate, a creation of the people behind the screen who manipulate and control his public persona. …” 

Yes, he gives a good stump speech after giving it several hundred times.

Yes, he reads a speech well from a teleprompter.

But how good is Barach on his feet when he cannot read from a teleprompter.

Apparently he is at best average. Certainly not the chosen messiah.

Obama Unplugged
Lost without a Teleprompter.
by Dean Barnett

“…It was thus interesting to see Obama climb to the stage at Virginia’s Jefferson-Jackson Dinner on Saturday night. As he strode to the podium, Obama clutched in his hands a pile of 3 by 5 index cards. The index cards meant only one thing–no Teleprompter.

Shorn of his Teleprompter, we saw a different Obama. His delivery was halting and unsure. He looked down at his obviously copious notes every few seconds throughout the speech. Unlike the typical Obama oration where the words flow with unparalleled fluidity, he stumbled over his phrasing repeatedly. …”

“…But Saturday night’s stem-winder turned out quite differently from the typical Obama speech. With no Teleprompter signaling the prepared text, Obama failed to deliver the speech in his characteristically flawless fashion. He had to rely on notes. And his memory. And he improvised. …”

In November the American people are electing the next President of the United States.

The American people are not selecting the next news reader or anchor for one of the television networks. 

News Presenter

“A news presenter is, broadly speaking, a person that presents a news show on television, radio or the Internet. The term is not commonly used by people in the industry as they tend to use more descriptive, and sometimes country-specific, terms. Examples include “newsreader“, “newscaster“, and “news anchor“. …”

The American people want their money back.

Obama: Most Liberal Senator In 2007 

“Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., was the most liberal senator in 2007, according to National Journal’s 27th annual vote ratings. The insurgent presidential candidate shifted further to the left last year in the run-up to the primaries, after ranking as the 16th- and 10th-most-liberal during his first two years in the Senate.

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., the other front-runner in the Democratic presidential race, also shifted to the left last year. She ranked as the 16th-most-liberal senator in the 2007 ratings, a computer-assisted analysis that used 99 key Senate votes, selected by NJ reporters and editors, to place every senator on a liberal-to-conservative scale in each of three issue categories. In 2006, Clinton was the 32nd-most-liberal senator. …”

Clinton or Obama? Who Fares Best Against McCain?

“As Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton settle in for a long contest that may not end until the Democratic convention, many conversations naturally drift to the question of which candidate would fare better against likely Republican nominee John McCain.

The early numbers seem to slightly favor Obama. In polling through Sunday, February 10, Obama held a four-point lead over the GOP hopeful while Clinton trailed the Arizona Senator by a couple of points. Clinton also has a much higher percentage of the population committed to voting against her than either Obama or McCain. …”

God complex

“…The French Revolution may well, in the opinion of some, illustrate the destructiveness of arrogant reforms attributable to god complexes. The purported god-like intention of intellectuals to reinvent the world, and in particular the retroactively claimed god complex of Napoleon Bonaparte, may have been in some opinions the catalyst for the twenty years of war that ensued. A collective god complex, rooted in the utopianism of the French Enlightenment, is considered by some to have led to the reign of terror that afflicted all of Europe beginning in the late 18th century. …”

 Barack’s Trinity Church (Part 2 of 2)


Cult typically refers to a cohesive social group devoted to beliefs or practices that the surrounding culture considers outside the mainstream, with a notably positive or negative popular perception. In common or populist usage, “cult” has a positive connotation for groups of art, music, writing, fiction, and fashion devotees,[1] but a negative connotation for new religious, extreme political, questionable therapeutic, and pyramidal business groups.[2] For this reason, most, if not all, non-fan groups that are called cults reject this label. …”

Political Cult

Political cult is a term used to describe some groups on what is generally considered to be the political fringe. Although the majority of groups to which the term “cult” (currently often used as a pejorative term according to some comparative religion scholars[1] [2]) is sometimes applied are religious in nature, a number are non-religious and focus either on secular self-improvement[3] [4] [5] [6] or on political action and ideology.[7]

Cult of Personality

 “A cult of personality or personality cult arises when a country’s leader uses mass media to create a heroic public image through unquestioning flattery and praise. Cults of personality are often found in dictatorships but can be found in some democracies as well.

A cult of personality is similar to general hero worship except that it is created specifically for political leaders. However, the term may be applied by analogy to refer to adulation of non-political leaders. …”

“…Generally, personality cults are most common in regimes with totalitarian systems of government, that seek to radically alter or transform society according to revolutionary new ideas. Often, a single leader becomes associated with this revolutionary transformation, and he becomes treated as a benevolent “guide” for the nation, without whom the transformation to a better future cannot occur. This has been generally the justification for personality cults that arose in totalitarian societies of the 20th Century, such as that of Adolf Hitler and Mao Zedong. …”

“…Brandishing a pair of blue boxing gloves given to her at a General Motors automobile plant in Lordstown, Ohio, Clinton portrayed herself as a fighter and Obama as someone who makes a lot of speeches that sound good but do not offer solutions.

“That’s the difference between me and my opponent. My opponent makes speeches. I offer solutions. It is one thing to get people excited. I want to empower you,” the New York senator said. …”

Obama at J-J Dinner

 By Matt Yglesias

“For those who want to hear less about “hope” and more about his policy agenda, Barack Obama’s Jefferson-Jackson Day speech in Virginia was full of that kind of thing. Personally, I think it’s probably a mistake for a speech to turn into two much of a laundry-list, but if you really want to see his agenda spelled out in some detail, the Blueprint for Change document has it in spades. My guess is that about none of the people who purport to be troubled by his lack of specifics have read this, but who knows? Certainly, it meets any possible standard of plodding earnestness that one might want. …” 

 Behind the Obama Bounce
Wall Street, beware.By Larry Kudlow

“…Obama voted against the Bush tax cuts on capital gains and dividends, justifying his anti-growth stance with the old class-warfare saw about tax cuts for the rich. Of course, these are the very same tax cuts that spurred economic expansion, created record job growth, and reduced the deficit as revenues flooded the Treasury.

The young senator also voted against repealing the death tax. He dismissed it as a “Paris Hilton tax break” that would give “billions of dollars to billionaire heirs and heiresses.” Try telling that to the owners of farms, ranches, and small businesses who are forced to sell their legacies because of this tax.


He swings a nice protectionist bat, too. He has voted against free trade (CAFTA) and U.S. energy independence (drilling in ANWR), and has opposed lifting a $0.54 per gallon tariff on Brazillian ethanol. “Ethanol imports are neither necessary nor a practical response to current gasoline prices,” he claimed. Nonsense.


He’s also strongly opposed to personal retirement accounts for Social Security reform, and prefers instead that the government stewards your money. As Amanda Carpenter wrote in Human Events, “When speaking out against various tax cuts, Obama has likened the ‘Ownership Society’ — which entails such things as personalized Social Security accounts, health savings accounts and school choice — to ‘social Darwinism.’”…”


“…The senator is liberal to the core. He voted against Supreme Court judges Sam Alito and John Roberts. (Even liberal senators Russ Feingold and Pat Leahy voted for Roberts.) He said no to Patriot Act wiretap extensions, despite their proven effectiveness on halting terrorist attacks over the past five years. He collaborated in blocking John Bolton’s appointment to the United Nations. He earned a perfect 100 percent rating from NARAL Pro-Choice America. He voted against a ban on partial-birth abortions twice as a state senator. He opposed the Defense of Marriage Act and stood against the Federal Marriage Amendment, despite acknowledging his belief that marriage is between a man and a woman. …”

Obama Speech Obscures Left-Wing Record

By Freddoso, David

 “Democrat Keynoter Favors Higher Taxes, Abortion, Lenient Treatment of Criminals…”

“…Obama has been markedly soft on crime. In 2001, he voted against a bill that added extra penalties for crimes committed in furtherance of gang activities. he also voted against a bill making it a criminal offense for accused gang members, free on bond or on probation, to associate with known gang members. In 1999, he was the only state senator to vote against a bill prohibiting early prison release for criminal sexual abusers.

Obama has a long record of supporting tax increases as well, although he rarely had the opportunity before Democrats took over the Illinois Senate in 2002. Despite Democratic rhetoric on the high cost of health care, Obama voted last May to hike the tax on insurance premiums. Although this tax is levied on corporations, it effectively raises rates for consumers. The same day, Obama voted to preserve Illinois’ death tax, increase taxes on casino visitors, and charge new sales taxes on businesses.

Given his record, it is not surprising that Obama has the support of leading left-wingers. Political action committees (PACs) that have contributed to his U.S. Senate campaign include: Progressive Choices ($5,000), Planned Parenthood ($5,000), the National Education Association ($5,000) and People for the American Way ($1,000), the leading group helping Democrats to block President Bush’s judicial appointees. Sen. Hillary Clinton’s (D.-N.Y.) leadership PAC gave him the maximum contribution ($10,000), as did the American Federation of Teachers and the National Abortion Rights Action League. …”

Obama missing moderate morale

“Every time I hear Barack Obama give the same watered-down version of his 2004 Democratic National Convention speech, I can’t help but cringe. He is an incredible public speaker, so his arguments for being elected as a “moderate” always sound very persuasive. The problem, however, is he is not a moderate. …”

“…There’s no doubt in my mind he could potentially win the presidency by running as a moderate, but his words would have to be pretty loud to overshadow his actions. According to the National Journal, a weekly political magazine, Obama’s lifetime liberal score is 88 out of a possible 99 – a full 8.6 points more than the score of Rep. Dennis Kucinich. For 2007, Obama was ranked the No. 1 most liberal senator. Last year, it was reported that Obama was more liberal on social issues than 77 percent of the Senate and more liberal than 85 percent on foreign policy. His greatest achievement, however, is being tied for the first-place spot as the most fiscally liberal member of the U.S. Senate with such left-wing notables as Barbara Boxer, Dick Durbin, and yes, his precious Ted Kennedy. …”

Wow, you’ve spent ALOT of time on this and to think, it’s all garbage. He’s the President so perhaps we shoud be supporting him. You lost me after I read the name “Andy Martin.” None of these so called conspiracies have worked. Did you notice that? Obama will lead this country in the right direction, as so many have commented above.

Obama is one of the least qualified Presidents in over 100 years and the first radical socialist to hold the office.

lmao! ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?! Name a SINGLE president, presidential candidate, governor or whoever else that doesn’t have a team of writers? THIS IS A JOKE RIGHT?!?!? lol! Oh god, this is truly the funniest post I’ve seen.

You’re not impressed by any man regardless of race who by any means was not supposed to make it if we go by society rules and statistics, graduate from the best schools in world, let alone the country, edit one of the best law reviews in the world, let alone the country and all you can come up with is ‘he doesn’t write is own speeches’ THAT IS HILARIOUS. Thanks!

By the way.. I’m still waiting for you to name just ONE president who wrote their own speeches. But if you think for one bit he doesn’t have any input in his speeches you’re more funnier than I thought.
