Dus Obama write his speeches himself ?
Yes, President Obama writes the majority of his speeches, or with the close editorial advice of his speechwriter, Jon Favreau. It is well-known that Obama wrote the official, final draft of his Presidential candidacy speech in 2007; he wrote 3/4 of the 2004 Keynote Address for the Democratic Convention.
As President, he has a team that assembles most of his impromptu speeches for him, such as the announcement of the earthquake in Haiti, or congratulatory speeches at White House events and functions. But for the most part, when it comes to heavily televised speeches, Obama is known to go line-by-line with his writing team over initial drafts that he himself writes, often early into the morning.
Actually, on most speeches, such as the inaugural, President Obama writes a first draft or an outline and then sends his musings to Mr Favreau, beginning a back and forth that can last for weeks.
So mikeh, your answer gave me an honest to goodness lol.
That question actually gave me an honest-to-God lol. No offense.
No, he does not write his own speeches. His head speechwriter is Jon Favreau, a 27-year old who looks like a frat boy.
I am sure he give plenty of his own input into what goes into them.
Certainly any President could but normally no.
