Barry the Fred Astaire of Public Speaking

Barack Obama is a complex character and hard to describe in words.  For me the chasm between what the President says, and contradictory things he does, can only be explained visually.

When Obama takes to the podium smoothness, precision and succinct accuracy extraordinaire are on full display.  By far, Barack Obama is the Fred Astaire of speechifying.  Every time the President’s lips open to utter a word,  “the Ritz is put on” equal to, or exceeding, Fred stunning audiences by slipping on a pair of  tap shoes.  Fred Astaire shined at the RKO, and when it comes to public speaking, without fail, Obama scores a TKO.


However, a pesky problem arises after Barry leaves the dance floor and removes the spats, tails and  top hat.  What follows doesn’t even remotely resemble “Swing Time.” The actions of “Daddy Long Legs -Obama, ” if compared to dance floor finesse, more closely resembles  Steve Stifler in American Pie.

Obama’s words never match political or personal actions — be it hypocrisy, misstatements, or prevaricating.  Politically, Obama does a ton of Dirty Dancing.  Yet, when it comes to living out what he verbally professes,  Obama has two-left feet.

Hearing the leader of the free world speak may be like watching an elegant waltz, but when the President sits one out and leaves the teleprompter backstage,  the Commander-in-Chief resembles sophomoric dancers on a beer binge, attempting to execute a mistimed square dance.


For me, pictures speak louder than words. How about you?


  1. Though POTUS and TOTUS may speak well together, I cannot bear to allow him in my home in anything longer than a Glenn Beck sound-byte.
    Obama has achieved 100% liar status in our home. Nothing he says can be taken at face value, as his agendas have shown him to a pretender to the throne of his delusion.

    I am totally offended by the way the both of them speak the English language. Its offensive and deplorable. He had his hand in his pocket yesterday in front of millions of people, he does not know WHO he is or what role he is playing. He is not presidential nor does she have any presence to indicate she has awareness of what she is supposed to be doing. I am deeply offended to hear a President say “whole bunches of advisors’ like a child, I do not like the childish speech and I do not believe either of them spoke like that when they were in college. Perhaps Michelle did pull that folksy routine at Princeton and made herself feel like an outsider and couldnt accept reality and made it into racism, her lack of interest in fitting in to her new environment and being quick to blame. These are serious, serious character flaws in people, blame, blame, blame. ‘talkin’ to folks’ ‘folks are workin’ hard’, who is he talking to? ME? I dont associate with people so inarticulate. My children didnt talk like that when they were tiny. I think its serious and the American people have absolutely no expectations any longer of our head of state, that is what it says to me. Its about the American people installing some clown in the Oval Office, who is so proud to sit there in his shirtsleeves. They are not role models nor do they care to be, they are just schoolyard bullies.

    When Obama is Puttin’ on the Ritz, he is in reality Puttin’ on the Con. Barry O. is the quintessential con man and the front man for the Democratic Party. People keep asking, “How did this guy get elected?” Easy. Barry simply conned the majority of the American voting public. Like any good con man, he first gained the trust and confidence of the voters. But the con didn’t stop post election. Now we have multiple cons going down. The Healthcare Con, The Climate Change Con, The Banking Con, Automotive Con, Cap and Tax Con, and so on. Obama makes Bernie Madoff and Algore look like a rank amateurs. Forunately, the MA election served notice that America is wise to Barry, the Democrats and RINOS alike.
