    TJ, it is true there has been a long history of teleprompter use by our Presidents. However, I do not remember others who needed it to talk to elementary school children, or who would stop their speeches and berate folks when the teleprompter would glitch.

    Mr. Obama is articulate, but only WITH the teleprompter. Without it, he rambles worse than Mr. Bush, without the accent.

    Who’s the one who brought up race? Ah, yes, it’s the open-minded, tolerant, “progressive.”

    True. Obama is lauded as a great orator, but in reality he’s good at giving prepared speeches but terrible off the cuff. Reagan wasn’t that great off the cuff either (his advisors would attempt to drown out the press with helicopters), but he wasn’t a rambler. Only the “true believers” were surprised by Obama’s performance at the first debate last year. The best all-around communicator was Clinton. He could give a great prepared speech, but also hold his own impromptu. Supposedly he once ad-libbed a joint session of Congress when the wrong speech was loaded into his teleprompter.

    I don’t remember any president who needed a teleprompter to speak to elementary school children or berated folks for teleprompter glitches either. Must not have happened…

    Quayle was given a card at a spelling bee. That was how it was spelled on the card he was given to go by. A set up maybe?

    The only one who mentioned obamas race is the liberal democrats. Everytime someone disagrees with his policy’s they bring it up claiming racism. Plus it was harry reid who called him “a clean and articulate…..”

    As opposed to the last President, who was soooooooo eloquent on his own many of us wondered if he was even literate.

    Every other President has used some form of prompting
    when speaking publicly, it helps them remember their
    talking points and keeps them withing the time constrains
    they face. Fortunately the others were able to have enough
    knowledge to speak on almost any subject at any time
    and remember the talking points. They could also ad lib
    when necessary with out looking like a deer in the headlight
    when the teleprompter was stolen or broke down.

    I absolutely think Black men can be articulate.

    It’s progressives that I think are dummys.

    Your right. But he gets a pass because he is a liberal and they cant be racist. Like the time Cruz Bustamonte used the N word while giving a speech to the NAACP.

    I thought it was Biden who said Obama was “clean and articulate.”

    Did it ever occur to you “tolerant, educated progressives” that some people might oppose Obama because of his policies? Obama got a higher percentage of the white vote than John Kerry and Al Gore.

    Meaning Joe Biden was actually even worse, since his racism is so pervasive he doesn’t even realize when he’s being insensitive.

    It was Joe Biden, not Harry Reid. Harry Reid is the wise religious scholar who declared that Mitt Romney isn’t a real Mormon.
