    He didn't use one at the GOP retreat. There are so many threads about Palin and her palm thing and the retort is Obama and a teleprompter.

    Republicans, what teleprompter did he use at the GOP retreat?

    What? No Teleprompter?
    "I was watching President Obama at the House GOP retreat. The biggest thing I noticed, unless I’m mistaken, he’s not reading from a teleprompter. I think the President reads from the teleprompter too much and I have made fun of him for it. So, I’d like to take this opportunity to say, this is one of his better presentations."

    I agree.

    Palin wouldn't have lasted five minutes in the same situation, even with a cheat sheet.

    Y'all sure get uppity about the silliest things... Why not expend that energy on something important? On both sides.

    Then what would be he point of this bulletin board? (At least its not a thread about Obama having a super bowl party or that he took a vacation in Hawaii, or something inane like that).

    True he used notes instead, the way things used to be done. And he didn't do bad with the notes.

    It was during the question and answer period that his ums and ahs and such came out.

    So he had notes for the unknown questions about to be thrown at him?

    Oh and the ahs and ums really were overshadowed by his responses as a whole really. Only certain people concentrated on anything but the content of his responses.

    Well, as long as they didn't watch fox. You really couldn't see it there...it was cut twenty minutes short and they talked over his responses.
