Harold Ford, Jr.: Obama ‘Greatest Orator The Office Has Ever Known’

Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address? FDR’s day of infamy and nothing to fear but fear itself? JFK’s ask not? Reagan’s Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall? Meh. Not bad I suppose, but nothing compared with Barack Obama’s immortal rhetoric, such as when he proclaimed, uh, like, when he intoned, that is . . .

On today’s Morning Joe, the unctuous Harold Ford, Jr. went into sycophantic overdrive, telling White House press secretary Jay Carney that President Obama is “the greatest orator that the office has ever known.”

These guys are gonna put The Onion out of business.

    it sounds like they are trying to convince themselves. They need justification for their stupidity in selecting this anti-American and putting him in the position to do the most harm to this country.

    everything about backtrack has been overblown hype and very little substance.

    unemployment needs to start in DC asap

    Harold’s jones’in for a hopium fix. He’s in withdraw. Poor fellow. It’s the hopium talking. He’s probably having dreams of lots of little Obama’s flying around sprinkling him with hopium dust. Fly Harold, fly.

    Obama’s never knocked my socks off with a speech. Always found the content of them a little too preachy for me. I think Sarah’s better, so there sycophans 😀

  4. OT: Here is an answer to people who call Hillary a hypocrite for wanting to intervene in some countries but not in others. (And HIllary mentioned some of this herself, eg support from the Arab League.)


    The Libya model is no guide for the future because such a unique set of circumstances in favor of military action is not likely to happen again.

    Think about the conditions: A despised dictator threatened mass murder; an open desert provided a decisive advantage for air power; a rebel army on the ground sought democratic change and espoused Western values; the UN at least loosely endorsed NATO air operations; the Arab League called for the West to intervene militarily in an Arab country; and U.S. allies prepared to do all the heavy lifting.

  5. This would be the same Harold Ford who intended to run for NY senate and was taken out both by DNC and his own big mouth, right? He became one big joke in NYC – so this is more of the same.

  6. Yuk! I went to the comments for that piece (Newsbusters) and someone put as example of great oration W’s megaphone on the dead bodies embarrassment.

      In all fairness, it was better than any speech Obama has read.

      Of course that’s a pretty low bar.

      • crawdad says:

        A great speech should have memorable parts, like “I have a dream” or “Ask not what your country can do for you.”

        “Throw grandma under the bus” just doesn’t quite measure up.

    Listening to Obama is like having to withstand fingernails on a blackboard. I can’t listen to him. No one has moved me with his/her speech as Mario Cuomo’s 1984 speech

    As you may know, Yahoo’s CEO, Bartz tweeted that she had been “fired” when the board of directors of Yahoo ended her contract. It’s the first time a CEO did not hide the firing.

    Bartz to Fortune: Yahoo’s board “f—ed me over”

    (CBS News) 
    Say this about recently-deposed Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz: She doesn’t give a *&&@! about the company’s board of directors, who she says earned its reputation for being a bunch of “doofuses.”

    In a delish interview with Fortune, Bartz verbally smacked around Yahoo’s board, which she also said “f—ed me over.” On Tuesday, Yahoo fired Bartz, bringing her 30-month tenure at the company to an abrupt end. Burning whatever bridges might have remained with Yahoo in her first interview since being booted, Bartz also offered the following observations about her former employer.
    • After calling board chairman Roy Bostock, she says he began reading a prepared statement to dismiss her. “I said, ‘Roy, I think that’s a script,'” adding, “‘Why don’t you have the balls to tell me yourself?'”
    • “The board was so spooked by being cast as the worst board in the country,” Bartz says. “Now they’re trying to show that they’re not the doofuses that they are.”

    But at least Bartz can console herself with the $10 million severance package she received from the very same board.

    Just got this email from my “friend” (proven by Dear Denise,eh?, Tim Kaine (running for VA Senate v. Macaca Allen):

    Dear Denise:
    Rick Perry says Social Security is a Ponzi scheme.

    It’s an offensive comment. I firmly believe that those who work hard and play by the rules all their lives shouldn’t be forced to struggle just to put food on the table at the end of their years.

    But that vision of America is in real jeopardy with this upcoming election. Rick Perry called Social Security a “failure.” George Allen voted to privatize the program when he was a Senator. These guys just can’t be trusted with our social security benefits.

    This is what’s at stake with this Senate race – and I’m counting on your help to make sure we’re successful. I cannot do this alone.

    Will you click on this link and make a contribution so that we can spread our positive message all across the Commonwealth?

    Social Security keeps countless of our nation’s senior citizens from going below the poverty line. It’s our society’s most successful insurance program, and its effect on our lives is intensely personal. For so many families and loved ones, the thought of Social Security’s demise would be unthinkable.

    Instead of talking about dismantling the social safety net, I want to take action to preserve its long-term integrity. And instead of divisive rhetoric aimed at inciting vitriol and anger, I want to work constructively to find common ground.

    If that’s the kind of approach you support, then I encourage you to invest in my campaign. Cutting through the noise of the Presidential campaign in Virginia is going to require more resources than ever, so I need your help to get our message out.

    Thanks so much for your generous support.

    P.S. Rick Perry is headlining a fundraiser next week for the Republican Party of Virginia – and that money will go directly toward promoting his extreme agenda and attacking us. Please fight back by clicking here and making a contribution today.

    I HATE campaign emails/snail mails, they’re so deceiving. And scary for money! I think my transition to their “dark side” started with him when he closed all our interstate’s rest areas. I then decided, I’d rather have a pot to pee in than a chicken in my pot 😛
