Speeches

August 26, 1988

I wonder if anyone besides myself finds it disgusting and deplorable that Presidents and presidential candidates have their speeches written by other people?

If a candidate for the highest office in the land isn't capable of writing his own speech, why on earth are we putting him (or her) in office?

Are they expressing their views, their thoughts, their decisions, their ideas, or Peggy Noonan's or Kenneth Khachigian's?

No one wrote Lincoln's speeches and he managed. Let's see if any of these ghostwriters can top the Gettysburg Address.
