Obama’s Speech on Economic Crisis on 14th April!

Well Barrack Obama is one rocking speaker…..now for all the people who have been following him and his campaign over the last many months would say….good morning….were you sleeping all these days…this is stale news….everyone knows he is a good speaker……well….ya…everyone know…and I have heard/read that he is good…and also watched snippets of his speeches on news etc etc.but for the first time…I actually saw an entire speech  that he was giving live on CNN by chance…..

 

I was swapping channels….and there he was starting his address on the world economic crisis and everything his administration has done to counter it…and boy was he good or what….logical… genuine…inspiring turst….

 

He started with how the entire meltdown started…..and why it became a mess…..the subprime crisis etc etc….all explained so simply that it was engaging and endearing…he then went on and spoke about the measures they are taking to tackle the crisis….he confronted everything that was criticized about his policies head on…..was serious…was humorous…..came across as very very honest and upfront……and like someone who knew what he was talking about and was in complete control of the situation…..he was not all positive….and said things are still bad…..and may get worse….but  the message was … “trust me…..I know what I am doing”…..and you felt like trusting him…..I was sitting there miles away watching his speech on TV and nodding my head in agreement….it almost felt he is talking to me…..if  he could connect with me…..sitting  across the TV set…..I wonder the kind of effect he would have on his live audience….he spoke for over half an hour….did not seem to have a written speech he was referring to….did not seem to be looking into tele-prmotors and specking…..he seemed so genuine and  speaking straight from the heart…..

 

No wonder he won the elections…..  

 

I am not going to review the content of his speech…..I am no expert….but he won himself another fan today……All the very best to President Barrack Obama….
