    Interesting strategery, tony. I wonder if Obama can pronounce nucular.

    He didn't have a teleprompter at any of the debates and did just fine. He's also much smarter than you or me. Can't say the same about Bush.

    I've seen Obama speak off the cuff, for a solid 30 minutes. No notes. No teleprompter. Just him in front of thousands and he did better than fine.

    I'll let the video stand.

    And now I see Johnson resigned as one of the vetters. Can't say I'm shocked after such a weak defense.

    Maybe an amoeba could make Bush look like Daniel Webster but that's about it.

    Fredo was furiously looking for his big picture dictionary when Obama used "tangentally" in one of his earlier sentences.

    The question isn't how you respond to friendly questions in front of a bunch of supporters. It's how you handle tougher questions. Looks like he's 0 for 1.

    So that's the standard now? Interesting that the same didn't seem to apply to President Bush - who remains 0 for the 21st century oratorically.

    You have awfully high standards. He was hardly stuttering and stammering all the way through. He was a bit rocky and then smoothed out.
    I don't even like the guy and I wouldn't give him a poor performance grade for that particular video clip.
    He had a debate with Hillary, that was poor, I was more expecting something similar. That clip was nothing.
    A real stretch to say anything less than decent.

    To say OT is grasping at straws is being kiind. Very kind.

    But once he stopped stammering, did he say anything? No.

    And that's not even taking into account that the question is about two corrupt guys working for him. Seems he knows a lot of those.

    He set himself up as something different. He's the same ole same ole.

    At least Obama does not ax anybody a question
