Obama spent vacation learning how to speak without teleprompter.

I know, it’s seems too hilarious to be true, but it is.


According to several Democrat political consultants presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Barack Obama spent part of his Hawaiian vacation working on weaning himself from a heavy dependence on teleprompters. Even in what are staged as “town hall” events for Obama, remarks are scripted or formatted into bullet points that scroll on teleprompter screens. Obama has had several embarrassing events where the teleprompter either malfunctioned or the screens were not fully visible.

In case you were wondering, this is what it looks like when the teleprompter malfunctions:

Now, can you imagine Obama trying to learn how to speak without a teleprompter?  What does he do, stand in front of a mirror and “uh” for ten minutes?  I can see why his campaign neglected to mention this, it’s embarrassing.

    really–let me go figure out how to vote—I always just race through the site–and they blame the GOP and the media for obama’s drop in the polls–look no further than your candidate

    Obama’s an act. Then, even he gets rid of his telepropmpter problem the other side of the coin is still there – he’s simply not good at debates, at answering sudden challenges and fighting them. Remember, this is the explanation of one of his legal career gaps – he’s never pleaded, never engaged in business in an adversarial environment. Obama is a back room operator.

    What we don’t need in the White House is an actor in rehearsal. God help us!

    Obama is the liberals’ and Democrats’ version of American Idol with a teleprompter. Too bad he can’t sing. He would have been more entertaining that way.

    I don’t know who’s more pathetic. Obama or his supporters.

    While I love to see obama fumble, I loved it even better when I found out he may have stolen his campaign slogan from a 2004 Episode of the Comedy Central Cartoon “SouthPark”. You can view a clip of the Episode at http://www.southparkstudios.com/clips/154575/ .

    Warning – SouthPark is a satire.. in its 12 years of existence, it should have managed to insult everyone on earth… at least twice..

    rashad, thank you for not being hateful. Whenever I see that rare pro-Obama comment in the queue that isn’t a frothing hateful rant, I rush to approve it.

    Yea, its really embarrassing. I’m not even supporting him and I feel ashamed. I don’t think Obama is competent enough to be president, period, but he has other strengths.

    He’d make a great actor. He’d be an excellent motivational speaker. He can write books too. He just doesn’t know how to administrate. A business class or two would’ve done him a lot of good in college.

    I am a republican and I am embarrased for Obama. Is this the President you want in the white house? He is no better than your average 4th grader without the teleprompter. Sputtering, stuttering empty suit.
