There is a lot of fuss made in the mainstream media about the speaking talents of Barack Obama.

And yes, he does have a talent for delivering a written speech, but his extemporaneous speaking skills are pretty rough.

I came across a post, Toastmasters Award, on the Real Time Jones blog about how while “Obama delivers an excellent prepared speech, his impromptu speaking (similar to table topics) needs a great deal of work.”

Here are a couple videos Tim shares that highlight Obama speaking sans TelePrompter.

No wonder he isn’t too keen for a series of town hall meetings.

Then again, I bet he could fetch a nice salary to be a talking head on the evening news come November 5, 2008.
