    Let me just jump on it and say, "NO!"

    I do not agree that the use of teleprompters by politicians should be made illegal.

    Santorum is sometimes a bit of a dufus.

    (But it is a funny dig at the incumbent even if he's not actually kidding -- :eusa_eh:.)

    Teleprompters and birth certificates, rather than jobs and the economy, the cornerstone of Obama’s reelection.

    Good job, republicans.

    I think they should stay legal, though I'd give up a week's pay just to watch Obama try to stumble through a speech without one.

    Would you give up the week's pay to ME? And...would a video of Obama giving said speech qualify?

    If teleprompters are outlawed only outlaws will have teleprompters.
    Try carrying one of those into a bank...

    Dude, that's CPAC 2012, folks give speech after speech for three days.

    The promters stay on the stage.

    Your ' gotcha ' is a dud...unless you have some proof he is using them.

    Show us where Obama is not in fact talking about irrelevant things like Birth Control and attacking Sarah Palin or Rush Limbaugh, who is not even running for any office?
