Amateur Hour

Just watched Israeli PM Netanyahu’s speech at the UN. I loved it. And I can’t help but feel a bit jealous. Why can’t we have a president who can speak like that?

Oh, Obama can read a teleprompter like no one’s business. He’s got more camera-pretty personality than any 5 Prime Ministers from anywhere. And the man positively oozes charm and charisma. But after watching Netanyahu’s speech, I can’t help but feel that Obama is more charm than substance. He’s all razzle dazzle and no foundation. He has showmanship but no sincerity. The man simply has no gravitas.

It’s like watching American Idol when they have a guest/real performer sing. You think your favorite contestant is amazing, better than any current famous performer, and why doesn’t this person have a contract already? Then the guest/real performer sings and you realize that there is a difference. Your favorite contestant isn’t nearly the same calibre as the professionals. Obama’s like that; He’s Justin Guarini.

Netanyahu is Nat King Cole (ignore the corny video and just listen… sweet).

    Best clip from a speech.

    And probably the best speech ever given between a joint session of congress.
