Watching these guys talk is so bizarre. It reminds me of highschool, when the freshmen would have to give a speech in front of the class.
These are both extremely wealthy men. You'd think they could afford toastmasters.
On the other hand, maybe this is just pandering to make republican voters think that they're just ordinary, middle class dumb guys from modest means rather than MBA-holding multi millionaire elites.
I swear, everything these guys say sounds exactly like the awkward conversations I hear when someone who knows nothing about a subject (and knows it) tries to have a conversation with someone who does. Like a guy bragging about how he raised money for his kids baseball team to Nelson Mandela or that Australian news anchor interviewing the dalai llama (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRvs1LvK5r0)
Every time they talk you can actually watch their faces get flushed in real time.
I can't help but wonder why anyone thinks either of these men are cut out for such a high profile office.
Gingrich is the world's greatest troll, but the man actually seems comfortable talking to people.
Hell, even GWB, dumb as he was, spoke confidently and authoritatively.
