To many, President Obama’s State of the Union speech was a welcome break from all the mud-slinging and name calling delved out in the past couple of weeks out by the GOP candidates. Like attending ones favorite concert swarms of people posted and tweeted in anticipation for the beginning of the President’s speech, anxious to get answers regarding taxes, unemployment, immigration reform and education.
It is no secret that President Obama is a prolific speaker, however he is not alone. Like what you heard? Then you should thank in part Jon Favreau.
Favreau might have one of the most difficult jobs in President Barack Obama’s office. The wunderkind is charged with writing speeches for a politician considered one of the best speakers of his generation.
Obama likes to have a hand in his speech writing, so Favreau (or “Favs,” as Obama calls him) is more of a speech arranger than a speech writer. He sits with Obama for 30 minutes at a time and writes down everything the president says. Then, he sits down and writes, gets edits from Obama and writes some more.
Favreau most famously composed the speech Obama gave after winning the Iowa caucuses (“They said this day would never come.”),
