For the past decade or two, Ronald Wilson Reagan set the standard as “The Great Communicator” while he was President of the United States. There is no question that he excelled over the many bumblings of George Walker Bush as David Letterman has so aptly recorded for us!
However, it is already clear that President Barack Hussein Obama is going to take the mantle of the Great Communicator if he hasn’t already done so.
Here are some of his accomplishments so far:
- a YouTube channel of his weekly radio addresses
- a blog on the official White House site
- and has already delivered some excellent speeches
Congratulations to BHO and his staff on all of this. I am sure that it has been quite difficult! Our government has never been the center of excellence for the use of technology. Clinton’s team was extremely frustrated at the lack of technology when they moved into the building.
Let us hope that all of this will result in a better run government, although the various missteps on getting nominees approved has been a bit disconcerting. And like all Presidents, he needs to stop exaggerating the truth.
