Teleprompt Me, Baby

Caleb at RedState has the funniest TOTUS blog post I have seen to date. It includes a video with a ton of brilliant photoshopped pictures.

Update: More funny.

Caution, though. Too much wanking might deplete the life essence. Put a more polite way, Redstate seems to be daydreaming in right field. Would they even notice a ball rolling by their feet, or will some kid in the stands have to yell, "YO! DUMMY! WAKE UP!" and then throw a full coke at Redstate while muttering "retards!".


But the funniest part, scrolling down: "Redstate Morning Briefing".

This, from a website/organization that complained they were being picked on by Ron Paul supporters in the COMMENTS THREAD back in 2008. Effeminate poseurs, thy name is Redstate.

Please don't encourage them, Lori. Plus [whispering], I spied an "AdCouncil" banner on their webpage. The Ad Council makes Obama look like Dwight D. Eisenhower. And no, Redstate doesn't have to "take" the ad. Anyway, like I said, poseurs. Fakes, phony pros, chickenhawks.

Bruce Henry:

You know, this "he can't speak without a teleprompter" thing you guys keep harping on is pretty funny.

First of all, did the man have a teleprompter when he cleaned McCain's clock in ALL THREE debates?

Second, SO WHAT if he does a better job speaking with a teleprompter than without? Don't you want a President who thinks about what he's going to say before he says it? I for one prefer it to a fake cowboy blurting out "Bring it on!"

Lastly, though most people were a little bemused about the Special Olympics joke-thingy, don't you agree that, at one time or another most of us have made similar remarks? Is there anyone posting here who has never made a "witty" remark only to immediately realize it offended someone?

And before you say, "Yeah, but he's the President," remember all the slack you cut the Previous Occupant when he said boneheaded stuff.

The debates were awful. They were nothing but prepared speeches. Obama had to take extra time to memorize the speeches.

Obama has shown he has a hard time without a teleprompter. Some things a person shouldn't have to "think about "before answering. It is call core principle and no one knows what core principles Obama has.

Remember how much slack Bush received when a door he had no control over was lock and he tried opening it? Imagine what would have happen if he tried thanking himself.

I was just doing a little comparing and contrasting on style, not substance.

And no one has answered the question: SO WHAT if he speaks better with a teleprompter than without one?

Speaking (and persuading) is one of the major components of the President's job. So if he uses a bit of technology to do that job more effectively, what's wrong with that? Are you upset because he uses a blackberry? Do you mock all the GOP Congressmen running around Twittering all day?

SO WHAT if he speaks better with a teleprompter than without one?

Look, if someone doesn't even know the answer to this question, then nothing anyone can say to them is going to make any sense.

I keep thinking of the news anchor who looks and sounds great "reading" the news from the teleprompter, but lacks the skills to go out into the field and actually do any reporting or even any analyzing of the news in studio. (Think Ted Baxter)

You could get one of those Disney audio animatronics to look and sound good with prepared remarks. I would think that everyone would want more than that in their President, but evidently I would be wrong.

Obama isn't dumb or completely uninformed, but he sometimes comes off a bit that way when off teleprompter because he has come to rely too heavily on it. When you are President words matter -- a lot.

It sure bothered liberals when Bush said things that sounded dumb. I wrote many times about how serious Bush's lack of communication skills was and how our next President needed to be a great communicator.

The difference between Bush and Obama, IMHO is that Obama can read from teleprompter and into a tv camera well, but is not good at speaking on his own. Bush was horrible when using a teleprompter and speaking into a camera (as he did in Oval Office addresses), but was great when speaking to an audience, especially in an informal setting. I'll leave it to you all to decide which exhibits greater intellect and command of the issues.

Obama stammers on his own lack of coherent thought. The point of the thought balloon was, well, Obama can't think. You were duped. A chump. Taken for a ride.

He's not a 'better communicator' - just a better reader. A true communicator could explain why he would abandon all pretense of what he promised during the 2-year election cycle. A true communicator would be able to explain why he's about to outspend his predecessor's 8 years (including 6 years of wartime expenditures) in under 90 days.

I understand you're fully invested in the guy - shame. Off-prompter, the guy can't think; on-prompter, he's told us nothing.

Bruce Henry:

Why are y'all so angry? It's an honest question.

And apb, talking about character issues or personal opinions about Obama's competence, or lack thereof, are different issues than what the heck is wrong with using a teleprompter.

See, the question I posed was not, "Was I duped? A chump? Taken for a ride?" The question was, "Why is using a teleprompter most of the time when speaking publicly a bad thing?"

The unspoken answer I get from you guys is "WAAAHH" He won! And his poll numbers are still high! He must be cheating by using a teleprompter!"

I get the Ted Baxter analogy, and I get that you'd rather Ronald Freaking Reagan was still President. But he ain't. Obama is, and has his own style. Get used to it.

You're crying out for an answer so here it is... it's NOT a bad thing.

Happy now?

In of itself it's far from a bad thing. However it does highlight one thing in stark contrast.

Off "prompter" he comes off at least as, if not worse than Bush when speaking off-the-cuff so to speak.

If you fail to see and understand that it's damn sure not because examples aren't available via various sources.

And BTW, it's not like you haven't "been duped" previously. I.E. when you jumped on the "lawyer marc" meme perpetrated by none other than two of wizbangs all-time asshats peabrain3000 and jp2 but assumed I was in fact a lawyer.

As if anyone gives a happy monkeyf**k what you do for a living.

In reality, very few Presidents have been really good speaking "off the cuff" as it were. Reagan was, and Clinton was. Bush the Lesser? No way. Bush the Slightly Smarter? Carter? Ford? Nixon, for God's sake?

ray:

Obama didn't debate anyone, he memorized some canned answers to known questions. An actual debate is something where the candidates challenge each other. McCain requested this format for some Town Hall debates, but Obimbo ran away, which is the only play he knows. He runs away from responsibility and real solutions.

He doesn't do solutions, he just haphazardly throws the treasure and sweat of others (sans plan) at those problems that interest him. Maybe something good will happen, maybe not, either way in his mind it's not his fault.

If Obama actually answered ... (Below threshold)

If Obama actually answered any of the questions in the debate you might have a point that he spoke okay in them, but since it was widely reported that he went through debate "bootcamp" and practiced answers to all the expected questions, he was hardly speaking "off the cuff."

McCain sucked big time in the debates because he never called Obama on any of the inaccuracies and outright lies he told. His team sent out emails during the debate pointing out all the inaccuracies and contradictions with past statements Obama made, but unfortunately McCain did not point them out during the debate.

Most of all though, McCain destroyed any chance he had at the presidency when he jumped on the bailout bandwagon.

Pig in a poke. Snake-oil. Trojan horse. His ability to read magically countered his years of voting 'present' in the Illinois senate; his participation in the Annenberg Challenge with noted douchebag Bill Ayres; hangin' with Mr. Wright.

----
Over the last 15 months, we've traveled to every corner of the United States. I've now been in 57 states? I think one left to go."

*Last week, in front of a roaring Sioux Falls, South Dakota audience, Obama exulted: "Thank you Sioux City...I said it wrong. I've been in Iowa for too long. I'm sorry."

"that is above my paygrade"

""In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died -- an entire town destroyed." The actual death toll: 12.


*Explaining last week why he was trailing Hillary Clinton in Kentucky, Obama again botched basic geography: "Sen. Clinton, I think, is much better known, coming from a nearby state of Arkansas. So it's not surprising that she would have an advantage in some of those states in the middle." On what map is Arkansas closer to Kentucky than Illinois?

*Obama has as much trouble with numbers as he has with maps. Last March, on the anniversary of the Bloody Sunday march in Selma, Alabama, he claimed his parents united as a direct result of the civil rights movement:

"There was something stirring across the country because of what happened in Selma, Alabama, because some folks are willing to march across a bridge. So they got together and Barack Obama Jr. was born."

Obama was born in 1961. The Selma march took place in 1965. His spokesman, Bill Burton, later explained that Obama was "speaking metaphorically about the civil rights movement as a whole."

*Earlier this month in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, Obama showed off his knowledge of the war in Afghanistan by honing in on a lack of translators: "We only have a certain number of them and if they are all in Iraq, then it's harder for us to use them in Afghanistan." The real reason it's "harder for us to use them" in Afghanistan: Iraqis speak Arabic or Kurdish. The Afghanis speak Pashto, Farsi, or other non-Arabic languages.

*Over the weekend in Oregon, Obama pleaded ignorance of the decades-old, multi-billion-dollar massive Hanford nuclear waste clean-up:

"Here's something that you will rarely hear from a politician, and that is that I'm not familiar with the Hanford, uuuuhh, site, so I don't know exactly what's going on there. (Applause.) Now, having said that, I promise you I'll learn about it by the time I leave here on the ride back to the airport."

I assume on that ride, a staffer reminded him that he's voted on at least one defense authorization bill that addressed the "costs, schedules, and technical issues" dealing with the nation's most contaminated nuclear waste site.

*Last March, the Chicago Tribune reported this little-noticed nugget about a fake autobiographical detail in Obama's "Dreams from My Father:"

"Then, there's the copy of Life magazine that Obama presents as his racial awakening at age 9. In it, he wrote, was an article and two accompanying photographs of an African-American man physically and mentally scarred by his efforts to lighten his skin. In fact, the Life article and the photographs don't exist, say the magazine's own historians."

* And in perhaps the most seriously troubling set of gaffes of them all, Obama told a Portland crowd over the weekend that Iran doesn't "pose a serious threat to us"-cluelessly arguing that "tiny countries" with small defense budgets can't do us harm- and then promptly flip-flopped the next day, claiming, "I've made it clear for years that the threat from Iran is grave."

Shall I go on?

I gave a presentation in Singapore yesterday. When I rose to speak someone from the audience yelled, "Wow. He's going to work without a teleprompter."

A column appeared in the New Strait Times (local Singapore paper)that sparked some intense conversation. It began as such:

"We're in a once-a-century financial crisis, and yet we've actually descended into politics worse than usual. There don't seem to be any adults at the top -- nobody acting larger than the moment, nobody being impelled by anything deeper than the last news cycle. Instead, Congress is slapping together punitive tax laws overnight like some Banana Republic, our president is getting in trouble cracking jokes on Jay Leno comparing his bowling skills to a Special Olympian, and the opposition party is behaving as if its only priority is to deflate President Obama's popularity."

You thought we were a joke under Bush? In the 60 days (sheesh, it seems like so much longer)since he took office, Obama has demonstrated a total absence of leadership in the free world. The liberals were so concerned that our country was the laughingstock of the world community. Well, listen closely. They're laughing now.
