Obama's speech in University of Indonesia is questionable?

This morning on the way to work I saw a cordon of local police guarding Obama passing by the usually congested routes to the University of Indonesia in Depok. And soon when I arrived in the office, one of our local TV stations was preparing a live show for Barack Obama's speech.

Then on the podium Obama opened a speech by a small talk, "Pulang kampung, nih." (Well, I'm home now) followed by laughter--good start, good response from the audience! He continued by talking on various topics and when he jumbled it occasionally with bahasa Indonesia, again, a roar of amazement was heard.

Despite this, his speech drove many to question. "Is he real Obama?" "Why doesn't he speak bahasa?" "Is he selling a product?" Don't misunderstand me, that's what commercial breaks likely take effect on our life in Indonesia. Fake Obama turns out to be sold out everywhere!

Still his speech is questionable.

"Omong apa sih?"

"Kok pada ketawa."

"Pusing gua, kagak ngarti!"

See? Really, really questionable to those having a bad command of English.
