Prowess: superior skill or ability
“I listened to part of his acceptance speech, but I don’t much care for him;
he speaks too well.”
That’s what one of my relatives said today of Obama’s speech. And she’s a Democrat.
He speaks too well.
What has America come to, that it’s a bad thing when someone as thoughtful and articulate as Obama “speaks too well”? Have we become that cynical?
Many politicians can deliver an effective speech – even if they have shit for brains – IF they’ve got skillful speech-writers crafting their words.
But Obama is that rare bird who actually writes his own speeches.
You simply cannot write a speech like that without having a well-educated, orderly, creative AND rational mind. His powerful delivery is a plus…
but the ideas came first.
The man can actually think!
America desperately needs a leader with a well-educated, orderly, creative and rational mind – one who doesn’t depend on speech-writers to get the message right.
The job of President requires a person who thinks and expresses himself clearly. We’ve had eight years of monumentally muddled thinking and garbled speaking. McCain is another shoot-from-the-hip quipper, with a loose grip on his facts and his memory.
OH PLEASE, NO MORE!
