I think large font is combination of a few reasons

- He is old and vision will deteriorate
- He does not prepare, read the speech before hand
- English ain't his first language and I suspect the font size has always been big

+1 everybody knows I do not like him but we can start worrying/thinking horrible things when he has one word on a page or a picture a page.



Remember at madiba's funeral he had the same thing. It has not deteriorated for more than a year.

No I think he is blind ....

He cant distinguish his rectal cavity from the distal end of his humerus

He clearly cant see that we have an energy crisis

He cant see the difference between a swimming pool and a fire pool

He didnt see the Malema EFF threat coming

He cant see the error of his ways

He cant see China colonising the country

Naaah - I think he is as blind as a bat.

Oh come on! This is like saying that talking slowly and loudly really works in getting foreigners to understand you.

Public speaking is about confidence. When I have not had time to practice a presentation or speech, I often write my notes in larger font. This is why I suspect he does the same.

Too be serious for a while - I agree about the confidence. But that confidence is in knowing your stuff. A large font helps you keep track of where you are in your speech. It isn't a remedy for being ill prepared.

For you I agree. People differ and how we mitigate lack of preparation varies from person to person.
