Mondale is right. He will go down in history as a decent man and sensible politician. Unfortunately, he had to live into the age of brainwashed wing nuts and such chicken hawk leaders as the deserter W or Reagan who was in the military for years but managed to avoid all active service from WW II thru Viet Nam.
I'll always remember Carter/Mondale for their lame-as-hell Christman tree? Remember?

He gave our southern boarder to the Illegal Aliens, drug, smugglers and coyotes. Some we may thank his lack of borader ptotection for another attack. He took absolutely no action whatsoever when BP went burp in the Gulf, he continues to hemorage money and he bowed to the King of Terrorists.

Mondale: Obama's teleprompters are 'idiot boards,' keep him from connecting with audiences

Former Vice President Walter Mondale said on CNN that President Obama relies too much on teleprompters -- which Mondale called "idiot boards" -- when speaking to the American people.

In a discussion of whether Obama projects empathy in his speeches, the 82 year-old Mondale said the president "has got to connect with the American people." When CNN host Wolf Blitzer asked why Obama has not shown more empathy, Mondale answered, "I've seen places where he's done it. The Milwaukee speech, I thought was terrific. I think some of these backyard events are terrific. But I think he -- he's very bright -- as a matter of fact, brilliant. And I think he tends to -- and he uses these idiot boards to read speeches on television and I think he loses the connection that he needs emotionally with American voters."
