Jon Favreau, President Obama’s head speechwriter, is departing: His time in the White House should serve Favreau well, David Plouffe said. “He can write comedy, history, drama, suspense,” he said. “He’s got the whole range.” Notice he didn’t mention tragedy. That is something Obama has been crafting just fine without any help from anybody.

Lincold wrote the Gettysburg address himself, on the train on the way to the dedication ceremony. We need to quit paying people to try and convince us the President has a brain. Its false advertising.

He just couldn’t keep up with “Dear Leader’s” teleprompter, which now days has more memory then any Democrat.

He’d only be a master bullshitter if he could get us to believe what he’s shoveling.

Favreau could write everything but the truth. But who’s worse, the man who writes the lies or the man who reads them to the nation?

The man who reads them as though they are truth.

OMG, what a gobblejob on the LA Times.
He can write anything but factual statements, I guess.
