Empty man

It seems that others are catching on to the fact that Obama generally says absolutely zero when he speaks. From the British Telegraph, via Allahpundit:

Yeah, I know, I know. I too was taken in when I first heard him speak. I remember thinking when I heard that measured, steady voice with its pleasant but authoritative timbre that here was a guy fit to govern the world. He sounded cool. Clint Eastwood “Make my day” cool.

Now, though, that novelty has worn off. Now, it’s becoming clear that this carefully worked, glacial poise is all there is to Obama. He’s just a hollow man spouting empty rhetoric.

Read the whole thing.

When the guy you are quoting as a convert to the anti-Obama way of thinking makes a teleprompter joke, that’s a sign that he was on your side all along.

He’s a Brit, so I doubt it. Even the “conservative” Brits I know are Obama-fans. The teleprompter, and his reliance on it, is a fact so I’m not sure how it gives anything away really.

I think they all pretty much rely on teleprompters for prepared statements these days. Obama’s problem is when he has to go off the teleprompter his brain apparently freezes up, which is a bad problem to have when you’re a politician. Sigh. This guy has so many weak spots. How did we end up with a guy who wanted to engage Obama where he was weak and Obama was strong?
Oh, did you see Obama thanked Bill Gates for being defense secretary? I wondered what he was going to do after leaving Microsoft.

The Telegraph has just run a great series about our politicians expenses. They were policing themselves. Resignations all round and heaps of ridicule, especially for the guy who put in a claim to get his moat cleaned (actually named Douglas Hogg).
