    Oh.....it must be both. We all know that he can't speak effectively for a minute without a teleprompter. And his awful record..........meh!

    Nobody is really buying into Obama's phoney attempt at pretending he's just "OK"...but obviously he would want to downplay expectations. Of course the media will then play along at how he shined in spite of his prediction.

    You are absolutely the perfect example of that old saw that opinions are just like assholes ...

    Or, haven't you noticed that MitWit has used a teleprompter in albatross every speech and when he has not, he has made one of his accidental statements of truth ... ?

    The teleprompter crap just doesn't work anymore.

    Unless you're an idiot rw who will believe any shit the R feeds you.

    And, in that case, you're right at home here.

    After Romney won the governorship and went through debates. He ran a failed presidential campaign last cycle and went through debates. He went through the most brutal thrashing of his character, career, and personal life at the hands of his fellow Republicans. I don't buy for one minute Romney is unprepared, he has been doing this thing hie entire political career. By now, what we have seen, is the best Romney can do.

    As for Obama, he seemed too cocky for me. I took his remark as overconfidence.

    Oh gosh man think! It is a set up. They down play Obama over hype Romney then any miss step by Romney gets blown up way out of proportion. They can then say Romney should have done way better and blew it. In other words nothing Romney does will be viewed as a win. It is typical liberal BS, don't be fooled again.

    Obama gives a very smooth delivery when it's scripted, and it's only because of all the "uh's" and "um's" when he is non-scripted, that give it such a contrast. He just needs to learn better stretching techniques while he's gathering his thoughts. If he had good debate prep, then he'll basically have all of his answers memorized for any scenario anyway, so it might not even be an issue.

    OK. He is going to use that imaginary teleprompter known as memory. Excellent analysis.

    Clue: Obama is a thoughtful person.....he thinks between words. This trait is appreciated by some.

    Bwahaha look at you getting all sensitive over any fucking critique over him...you can't even accept that he needs to learn better "stretching techniques" than "uh's" and "um's" while he's being oh so thoughtful.:lol:
