And you end up with this:

Shortly before Obama left for Hawaii for his Christmas vacation, the incoming president went over the draft with Favreau, who wrote a second version of the speech over the holidays. Yet aides say it was Obama who ultimately wrote the bulk of the speech. Two weekends ago, Obama holed up in his room at the Hay Adams Hotel in Washington, where he and his family stayed earlier this month, and worked on what aides described as “extensive writing” on his own. “He had very strong ideas early on about what he wanted to convey,” a senior Obama aide tells Newsweek. The speech you’ll hear today is more than 60 percent Obama’s own words, the aide adds.
But I can see where you are confused. I mean it only mentioned that HE wrote major sections and defined it three or four times.

Apparently it was YOU who didn't read the article. But that it somewhat of a pattern.

Now that was just comedy gold.

And I have been saying NeoCons can't do comedy.

No problems there McBear. I see that you at least admit he has speechwriters who do the heavy lifting. The ideas are of course President Obama's but to think that he spent the time to write the drafts after drafts of the speech is really rather naive. I can understand that he wrote the final draft and that this was all the work of a coalition of people. Of course it is. It his inaugural address! I just don't understand you and others' insistence that Obama did it all himself or that he is this magnificent orator.

It has been shown again and again that when you take away his telepromter he begins stammering and sweating like Michael Jackson in a Chuck E. Cheese.

Dude, let's just say that your material writes itself. All one has to do is quote you. You don't even need a ..... speechwriter
