Henry Ford's Herbert Hoover Speech.

Henry Ford was known for not giving many speeches. Among the first speeches was to a group of prisoners at Sing Sing Prison where his first remarks were "I'm glad to see you all here". 

In this short speech you can hear Ford's shortcomings as a reader & speech giver. This clip dates from 1931-32. Hoover lost the election, but I'm sure it wasn't because Henry Ford wasn't a fast reader.
