Every time someone goes hurrrrrr telepromter lol ... this will be re-linked. Woo.
 
2012-07-11 10:12:14 PM  
My mistake, he was quoting Dr. King (who was quoting Chesterton). But he said it to separate King's words from his own. WTF is wrong with you people?

the best part is when people read "Teleprompter-In-Cheif" jokes off of their own GD teleprompter with zero awareness of how hilariously dissonant that is.

I think we've found the Republican response to this one.

Personally, I've never heard anyone do this in my twentysomething years on this planet.
 
2012-07-11 10:18:28 PM  
Who says "end of quote"?

I say "endquote" or "quote unquote"
 
2012-07-11 10:21:39 PM  
I'm starting to see WHY the Republicans hate teleprompters.

It's Mitt Romney's "I'm the decider." Weird and unnatural, but not technically wrong.

"George Romney released 12 years of tax returns because, he said, and I quote, 'One year could be a fluke, perhaps done for show.' End of quote."" - Joe Biden, yesterday

now you've heard it twice, dummy
 
2012-07-11 10:25:03 PM  
As much as Romney flip hyphon flops comma he might apostrophe ve already changed his mind about ending that quote period

^This. Politicians use quotes all the time, I have no recollection of anybody ever saying those words out loud and I've been on this planet for double your twentysomething years.

In particular, listen to the cadence that he uses to deliver those words: it's absolutely indisputable that he thinks he's still delivering the quote (or worse, isn't thinking at all about the words he's delivering). I suppose somebody could, with the best will in the world, defend this if they only read the transcript; but if you listen to the audio, there's no explaining this away as "he closed the quote".

If only the Republicans had spent the last 4 years criticizing their opponent for some inane issue that couldn't possibility come back to bite them in the ass....

I just hope to god this is the last farking time I have to hear about teleprompters.

Now if only he'd get caught eating a bowl full of arugula.

why would a teleprompter say "end of quote" on it if he wasn't actually supposed to read those words? It doesn't make any sense. In all likelihood, it was actually part of the prepared speech as it was loaded on the teleprompter or he ad libbed that bit in to close the quotation.

Kiss my ass. I haven't voted republican in years, but that has shiat to do with something that intelligent people recognize as 'the point'.

If you've never heard someone say "quote/unquote, end quote, close quote" etc, then you haven't heard many formal speeches. It's not generally used in common speech, but when speaking formally it's considered proper to distinguish your words from someone you're quoting.

Oh wait.

2012-07-11 10:32:29 PM  

cameroncrazy1984: Who says "end of quote"?

I say "endquote" or "quote unquote"


I always preferred quotefingers. Just make sure to keep those quote fingers rocking for the whole quote, otherwise people will think you are being sarcastic.

/I do not prefer quote fingers

I agree Make masturbation gesture while nodding sarcastically period
 
2012-07-11 10:33:29 PM  
I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and say that he just used bad phrasing there. Now, if he had said "end of line", I would be worried.

Is this why Romney got booed during his NAACP speech? Oh, that was when he said he'd repeal ObamaCare.
