why the sad tag, subby? do you own stock in teleprompters?
 
2012-07-17 12:06:58 PM
If the difference between Presidentin' Obama and Campaign Obama is a teleprompter, then I wholeheartedly support the jettisoning of said teleprompter. Presidentin' Obama should emulate Campaign Obama more in his second term.

Our country and its politicians have their shiat together so well that all there is left to decide is whether or not we should be led by someone who uses a teleprompter or not. This is the Golden Age of America people!

Presidentin' Obama gets to deal with the other two branches of government. Campaign Obama doesn't. Everybody sounds good on the stump*. He's actually done a pretty good job and fully deserves a second term.

At this point, it's almost like he's decided to rope-a-dope.

And Mitt certainly seems willing to play the part of Foreman...

If there was an honest candidate running against Obama, it would be a blowout.

How low does your IQ need to be for you to care whether or not someone uses a teleprompter? If you care you need help. Seriously. Seek help.

These same people would claim he's not "presidential" enough if he didn't use a teleprompter and he flubbed a speech.

Oooh, then all you'd have to do is bring up a recording of any one of Bush's speeches and their heads will explode.

The teleprompter thing is probably one of the derpiest right wing outrage memes out there, right up with the "57 States" meme.

I think I just saw my first-ever Presidential Campaign ad. In New York. It was the Barack Obama America the Beautiful ad. I have never seen a presidential campaign ad before the primaries.

I used to live in the Southern Tier of NY and was in range of WSEE out of Erie. That's the only station I would ever see national ads on. And yes, it's awful.

I'm used to every local break being wall-to-wall "Did Senator Derpenstein REALLY say Jesus couldn't take Buddha in an arm-wrestling match?" -- IN OCTOBER, not in motherfarking July.

Well sure, they are now. If Obama isn't using them any more they're the greatest invention of the modern age and only a fool would eschew them.

When you're giving basically the same speech with a few minor modifications 10000 times in a row, you need fewer and less coherent notes than when each speech is unique in content and often distinct in format.
