    You’re confusing Obama with little Bush again, who couldn’t speak with functional literacy even with a teleprompter.

    Less than 4% of the Dept of Energy loans defaulted and the teleprompter meme is not only tired but was never true in the first place — not only is Obama hardly the first prez to use one, but he is, off the cuff, one of the most articulate men in the White House since Kennedy or maybe Teddy Roosevelt.

    Generally love the strip, but this is a colossal blunder down a dark alley.

    Hitler was very articulate…..not comparing Obama to Hitler, just making a point.

    Uh, corps-man, 10,000 people die in a Kansas tornado, Japanese cars get 45 mpg, 44 Americans have now taken the presidental oath,? And then there are dozen of things such as "President Obama said Lazarus was “inspired by what she saw and heard, she wrote down her thoughts and donated a piece of work to help pay for the construction of a new statue – the Statue of Liberty which actually was funded in part by small donations from people across America.”- Any kid who went to school in America knows it was given to us by France. Do I need to say more?

    Scott, you got balls, you are the only cartoonist alive that hacks on BHO – you are committing professional suicide. I’m glad some one is doing it

    Off the cuff, Clinton was a great speaker. One time at a joint session the wrong speech was loaded, and no one realized it because he took it in stride. Bush II wasn’t particularly articulate with or without a Teleprompter, but I also believe there was a similar incident that occurred when he was President. It might have been before a TV address.

    Obama without a Teleprompter tends to ramble. He knows what he wants to say, but needs prepared text in order to stay focused. Otherwise he just drones on and on about minutia. His performance in the first debate is evidence enough of that.

    Many actors are articulate too, does Hitler having anything to do with them either?

    Did Obama give a speech? Which school? Your anecdote is wanting for verifiable data.

    yes, the statue was supplied by france, but the site and pedistal were funded by americans. joseph pulitzer of the new york world newspaper’s campaign attracted over a hundred thousand contributions, which finished the job. without those american contributions, the statue wouldn’t be there.

    The Obamanation is well known for his dependence on his teleprompters

    But that is not what he said. Everyone makes mistakes when speaking but I was replying to a comment about how bad Bush supposedly was. You can’t have it both ways. Attack Bush and give obama a pass on the exact same thing.
