What do Obama and the BeeGees' have in common?

"Jive Talkin".

I'm referring specifically to president Obamas' speech to the GM workers in Detroit yesterday. I suspected him of doing this before, but this confirmed he intentionally interjected a little jive into his rehearsed speech...apparently demonstrating his connection to the common worker.

I'll leave to each member to decide for themselves as I refuse to qoute what the prez said out of respect to the workers, but feel free to point out your own observations.
