"...According to the NYT, Obama is possibly the only American President in 50 years to have such a major dependence on his teleprompter. Indeed, other Presidents used teleprompters on their most important speeches (inaugural, Oval Office, SOTU addresses), but Obama uses them for routine announcements as well. He used them on a visit to the Caterpillar plant and to make remarks about his own 'fiscal responsibility summit.' He even used them to talk about endangered species of animals ---- actually reading out verbatim from the teleprompter,'That was an experience I will never forget.' LOL! No wonder the high-schooler fell asleep during Obama's most recent teleprompter reading...."

My Heavens. Whatever will we do? The man reads his speeches from a teleprompter. The humanity.

He is a dolt for using technology? So if someone uses a calculator instead of a slide rule, they must be a dolt. Got it.

We'd rather have a President who will look us in the eye and tell us what he thinks....rather than a base of writers who get info from left wing bloggers and then regurgitate it.

He is a dolt because he cannot function without prepackaged speeches.
Whenever he speaks off-teleprompter, he embarrasses his handlers.
The man has zero ability to think on his feet.
He is not a leader.

<quoted text>The abandonment may have begun today on the Sunday news shows:
On Fox News Sunday, Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA) admitted that the Obama administration's talking points on Benghazi, edited to remove references to extremism and blaming protests against an anti-Islamic YouTube video for the violence, were "false. They were wrong. There were no protests outside the Benghazi compound."
On CBS News' Face the Nation, Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD), the Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee, also admitted that the administration's talking points were wrong, though putting the changes down to the fact that the intelligence changed over time in a "volatile situation."
Meanwhile, on Syria, former Rep. Jane Harman, a prominent California Democraet, acknowledged on NBC News' Meet the Press that the Obama administration had been slow to respond: "I wish we had acted sooner."
Media Matters has long tentacles that destroy honesty and integrity in our news system. It's hard to live with all the corruption it causes.

It's truly amazing when you see the sea change thanks to Obama. I work at a market polling and research company as an analyst and five years ago, George W Bush was polling at about a quarter of all our sample groups. He's now at around fifty. I never thought I'd see George W Bush rebound so quickly. It turns out that the one thing Mr. Competency Barack Obama has accomplished has been to make George W Bush look great.

Do you poll Nixon as well?

You should, I'd vote the corpse of Nixon over Obama.

I don't think "articulate" was a racial remark, but a comparison to idiot-in-chief #43.

You operate on a time-share of a single brain cell, and you dare call someone else a moron?! Obama's poops are smarter than you.
