What Obama's 27-Year-Old Speechwriter Learned From George W. Bush

Jon Favreau got out of college just in time to make history. But the kid writing all those pretty speeches has some surprising influences. . .

. . .And Favreau is right, Gerson's speech for Bush that September 20 was one of the great speeches in American history. But it must be noted here that with that speech the discord between speech and speaker has never been more pronounced, for we have come to know that Gerson's boss never fully grasped the power of words. With an exalting script, Gerson could make George W. Bush sound like Winston Churchill for an hour. But it is Jon Favreau's task and his gift that he is able to make his boss -- a fellow who has been known to write a sentence or two on his own -- sound like Barack Obama.

I decided to post this news article not as a subject to a fierce debate (the story is actually true, so it can hardly ignite and burn down civility and decorum), but the reason is to ease the tension between Obama and Bush fans. Given the influences described in the article, it could happen that President Obama may start to sound like former President Bush. If that happens, please be aware of Obama's speech writer behind the scenes, that college kid who admires Bush's speech writer.
