I've recently been listening to different speeches by different US Presidents. Originally it was because I wanted to improve my speaking ability by listening to Ronald Reagan, who was nicknamed The Great Communicator, and I wanted to know what that was about. Then I started listening to parts of other speeches for a certain project I was working on. Some of them were at least somewhat interesting to listen to (enthusiastic, passionate), whether or not I agreed with their ideas, but Lyndon B Johnson was a really boring speaker, who, if he taught a class I attended, would likely have put me to sleep... his speech pattern makes the sterotype of slow Texans seem true. :| Also, he might've been Uncle Ben. Look up his 1968 speech to the National Association of Broadcasters... if you don't fall asleep or zone out while listening, you might just catch the reference. (Or you can read the transcript, which just might be faster anyway.)
