Historic and Unprecedented: Most Well-Spoken President Ever Says “Uhh” 96 Times in Under Five Minutes

Posted by on Mar 05, 2012 at 12:50 pm

I was struck how bad a public speaker this guy is when he doesn’t have his trusty teleprompter. While speaking he utters an “uhh” at least 96 times, often repetitively. Curiously, Benjamin Netanyahu get through speaking with any uhhs. See if you can keep track. I may have undercounted.

Oddly enough, a transcript provided here omits the uhhs. I guess it would be racist to leave them in.

    I certainly don’t remember the supposedly stupid Bush going “uhh” so damn often, either.

    Actually, my favorite thing to hear from our “most-intelligent-ever” teleprompter President, is when he stretches out the “a” sound in the word “and”—whenever he is talking off prompter and trying to think of the next “intelligent” thought he is about to say.

    You guys got this all wrong. Saying “Uhh” or “Ahh” or even “errr” 20 times a minute off teleprompter is just more proof of how scary smart Obama is.
