    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.

    “despite those who think black men can’t be [articulate]”

    Wasn’t it a Democrat who gave that “compliment”?

    Teleprompter been in use since 1950. Before that it was written notes only.

    Who identified the crypto-racist speech going on against our president? A open minded, tolerant , Progressive.

    @fbjsr

    That was Joe Biden who said that racist thing about being “clean and articulate” and he had no clue he was doing it. The accidental racist.

    @Ionizer

    A “C” rated president who was a burn out of alcohol and cocaine and didn’t get off them till he was 40? Please.
