Barack Obama's Teleprompter dies; trusted speech aid was barely 2 | Los Angeles Times
it was really funny, actually.
i'd think the wingnuts who think he can't talk without it should have been very impressed with how cool he was.
but that would probably require giving credit where credit is due.
If he's such a great orator, why does he even need the crutch?
It's so you can see his pretty face, since even the greatest orators in the world use 3x5s instead.
well, it helps you focus. i'd use it too, same as i always wrote out my opening statements and summations. otherwise, you get done and say, "darn, I meant to mention.....".
The only president I know of who could seamlessly talk extemporaneously in major speeches was Bill Clinton, who actually ad libbed 20 minutes of a State of the Union Address at one point.
that must be it... *shrug*
How can you be so cold, so heartless??? The TOTUS is dead... DEAD!!!!!
Pretty??? It just occurred to me that his face was the reason it broke in the first place.
So, we can safely toss away the "great orator" label for The Obama.
Bill Clinton had (and perhaps still has) an incredible memory. I was always amazed at how he could remember every detail of a given meeting from years ago, including everyone's names.
