However, you do realize that he had writers working for him that actually wrote most of those. right?
Your point being. which president has made his own speaches.
Difference with Reagan, he said things off the cuff. And in his most famous speach of all He made them put in the lines Mr Gorbachev tear down this wall.
reagan said things that drove his advisors nuts. He had wit and charisma. Somethingn that has been lacking since he left office.
The reason Mr Gorbechov tear down this wall was in his speach was because he wanted it there. not because of his speach righter.
In Cali as Govenor, while driving thru protestors carrying signs that said we are the future, stuck a sign on his window that said then I sell my stocks. Did his writers do that for him.
He was Govenor of the Ca, before he was president, He was head of the screen actor guild before that. Not like he went from nothing to something over night.
Does Obama right his own speaches. and being that his stuff is scripted you should look for the Pa, debate where he looked like a jenny craig member in a crisp creme factory trying to answer those "tough" scripted questions.
He's never had to face Grobachev, Or any of the problems Reagan had. And he still looked like a boob there.
Have you ever woke up one day and said. Damn when does the season start.
