Committee_For_Aesthetic_Deletions: Worse yet, search "Obama" and "Uh." That guy doesn't have the ability to speak without a teleprompter. He sounds great as long as someone else puts words in his mouth. Whenever he's in an interview or a town meeting, though, his verbal pauses drive me out of my skull.

Not true. See the link in this very thread. I've only seen one video EVER where he had a significant pause or misspoke.

Prank Call of Cthulhu: Alas, "donkey punch," "golden shower," "dirty sanchez," and "money shot" yielded no hits. Interestingly enough, though the phrase "two girls" and the phrase "one cup" each appear in different videos, but not together.

I really hope you're searching for these phrases at work.

/Yes, I know. Bush can't speak WITH a teleprompter.

Wait. Are you trying to insinuate that people speak better and pause less when they read prepared statements, even ones they wrote themselves, than when they speak on the fly?

THAT IS JUST CRAZY TALK.

Yeah, he says 'uh' a lot. That's hardly an inability to speak. I guess he could just do a Mike Gravel and stare at the camera instead.

I don't need Google when I have "wharrgarbl."

Oh god, if they index every politician and properly count the "uh"/ects, this'll be the greatest thing I've ever seen.

/OH GOD, search for "penis,":
"...a weekend of hope what I have learned from the penis of my boss and from my journey ..."

I do not think it is the ammount of Uhs that annoy me when Obama speaks. It is the tonality of the Uhs. Sometime it reminds me of the clerk at the hotel in Bules Brothers.

I truly believe that you've only seen one video. The MSM doesn't show Obama looking unpresidential. Those portions end up on the cutting room floor. Check out video from a live town hall meeting. There's a reason you don't see him in that forum often. Better yet, wait until the Presidential debates. Coming soon to a screen near you.

Hey, John McCain said that "...today the time for the fall of the satanic power of the united states has come..." It's on DAudi, you can't deny it. JOHN MCCAIN HATES AMERCA, YOU HATE AMERICA.

Come on now, it's a bit more than that. This man is heralded as being eloquent and well spoken. He's placed on a pedestal as a great thinker and orator.

I'm saying that when he delivers a speech that's written by another, he delivers it perfectly. His vocal inflection, pronunciation, rhythm, everything is masterfully done.

When asked a question for which he has to formulate his own answer and put it together in words, he fails miserably. He throws enough "uh, um, you know, etc" into his answers that it becomes difficult to find just what his answer is.

Apparently in the 20 debates preceding the DNC, enough Democrats found enough in his answers to vote for him as their candidate. He also doesnt go out of his way to avoid the press. I believe the debates will be interesting, but I dont expect either Obama or McCain to look unpolished.

Hobodeluxe: Google is letting us peek in on the Big Brother tech Bush has been using for the last decade. searching audio for keywords and flagging it,indexing it etc.

/all your words are belong to us


Crap, I didn't think of that. I have generally assumed there wasn't enough available computing power to handle all the audio processing of, say, a major telecom pipe.

a search for "cheese" turns up some confusing results:

"...wealth of scientific and cultural a cheese all result from the..." the other result is Mark Hamill. McCain doesn't even talk about cheese at all, that out of touch bastard.

Not at all. I feel that it is my true calling, to call attention to the fact that Jessica Lee Rose is a complete disgrace to the entertainment industry. For someone to sit in front of a webcam talking in mono-tone about a bunch of stupid drivel about a fake cult takes no talent at all. Her videos had no entertainment value, and the only reason she got any popularity at all was that YouTube artificially pumped up her hit counts.

The more I bring this sort of abomination to light, the more people who actually have talent, work hard, pay their dues, and offer true entertainment will succeed, while no-talent douche-bag whore slut coonts like Jessica Rose will be forced to go out and get real jobs.

Please don't tell me that you think politicians write their own speeches. They hire professionals to do that. My concern is whether Obama gives the writer the talking points or if he's being given them from someone else. Considering his lack of fluency when asked a question in an impromptu setting, I have a hard time believing that the positions and thoughts he espouses in his speeches are truly his own.

Also, where was the teleprompter in Denver?

The teleprompter was there. The words are projected onto pieces of glass from beneath. The speeker is the only one who can see the reflection. It's just like when a news anchor's prompter is mounted in front of a camera lens.

He also writes some of those himself. In fact, he wrote all of the notable ones himself. So, you may feel free to include that fact.

But yes, you're still right. He, like nearly everyone else in existence, speaks better when he has time to prepare his words in advance.

But pretend it means more because he's accurately known for speaking well in general.
