Obama has to use a teleprompter to talk to 6th graders. This guy is simply pathetic.

You know, you're right. Why use a teleprompter for notecards when other recent presidents have shone intellectually just winging it?

And yet in these weblinks no actual photo exists of Obama using the teleprompter while actually speaking to students. I see Obama sitting on a chair talking to students in one classroom and a teleprompter set up in another classroom with no students, probably for a TV broadcast.

Well it does not matter whether he uses it or not nothing is working for the guy because he has absolutely no idea what he is doing and we are paying for his sheer incompetence.

Hey Rat Turd, as I have posted in the past, why don't you run and show us how it's really done?

Your User ID says it all, BTW.

My favorite line ever...."Fool me once...shame on...shame on you, If fooled me, you cant get fooled again.

I was just gonna say hee hee hee! look at 'em all STILL comparing Obama the the worst President ever, war criminal, moron, Cheney puppet, bla bla, etc.

But have to add I would honestly rather have Bush and his verbal stumbles than a teleprompter President.

SOTU will be interesting, to say the least. GOP has a piece of duct tape ready for Joe Wilson.

I looked very carefully at the pictures and have to agree ,that I saw no evidence of him using a teleprompter while talking to the 6 graders. The space between the students and the front of the room was quite close and when the Pres. was usung the teleprompter he had a lot of space between him and the front of the room.
