    You know it. I was substituting an elementary class once and the the book was using a different math system in which the name escapes me at the moment. The kids at first don't learn how to solve the problems but why numbers work they way they do. Anyway I was a little stumped and one little girl spoke up and said, "Mr. ***** you don't do this very often do you?

    Obama does a lot of his own writing. I'd be surprised if Reagan did but could be wrong.

    Presidents create an outline of what they want to say. They submit sentences, slogans and talking points they want incorporated in the speech. The speechwriters put it all together, polish it and make it all sound nice. I doubt if any president has written an entire speech word for word since Lincoln.

    That's true but I still read somewhere he does a lot of his own writing compared to other presidents.

    I know you're partisan but it shouldn't come in the way of reality.

    Why would partisan hacks be concerned with the truth? It only gets in the way of their funny story.

    Remember all those right wing bogus emails that were going around during the Iraq War? Ficticious military troop authors and the whole nine yards? It didn't seem to matter to the right as long as they made them feel warm and fuzzy.

    This thread isn't about Reagan, get a clue.

    I didn't bring him up. One guy claimed Reagan wrote his speeches. You get a clue.

    I don't understand the big deal. This is what you guys are reduced to? Whining about a teleprompter?
