"I think that I'm a better speechwriter than my speechwriters." - Barack Obama Good lord, I should hope so.—

Thank you, Iowahawk, for that timely flashback. An Iowahawk never forgets!
The president was really reaching for the stars when he proclaimed himself a better speechwriter than the people actually writing his speeches. After his economy speech on Wednesday, the question is: Who isn’t a better speechwriter than Obama’s speechwriters?
Actor James Woods was particularly taken aback by the callous dismissal of inquiries into Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the IRS and the NSA as “phony scandals.”
Did Obama have to read the speech off the teleprompter to find out what was in it?
