Breaking: Obama Gives Speech From Notes, No Teleprompter in Sight!
Pundit Press ^ | 6/9/11 | Aurelius

Posted on 06/09/2011 11:24:00 AM PDT by rightistight

It looks like preacher Harold Camping was off by about three weeks: the end of the world may very well be at hand, as President Barack Obama gave a speech completely from his notes. That's right, no teleprompter!

At a speech at Northern Virginia Community College, the President spoke in front of a group of students, no TOTUS in sight. Even more shocking: he had words written down on paper!

Almost as shocking was the absence of a prompter during Mr. Obama's meetings with Angela Merkel .

The President has heavily relied on teleprompters for almost every single speech of his Presidency, including one to a sixth grade classroom:

Could this new strategy of writing down notes and reading them, instead of reciting words off of a pane of glass, actually stick? Only time will tell.

Soros had the teleprompter installed on the inside of Obama's eyelids.

It's called keeping up with Sarah Palin. Barry has been shamed watching Sarah speak extemporaneously from just a few notes. Barry said, “Hey, uh, er, eh, uh, maybe, uh, uh, I should, uh, you know, er, uh, try, uh, doing that, uh, too.”

Psst, over here, rumor around Washington is that the teleprompter has quit the administration and return to a teaching position at an unknown college. The teleprompter was last seen exiting out the backdoor of the White House in the middle of the night on Friday with bags in hand and entered a waiting car with Blackened Windows.

I wonder if TOTUS is refusing to appear with him after it caught Obama cribbing notes from his BlackBerry.

If he sticks to notes, he will TOTALLY lose his "charisma." His appeal is ALL about speaking with his chin CONTINUOUSLY lifted into the air...and snobbishly and authoritatively sweeping it side to side.

He's SUNK.

TOTUS joined SEIU and pulled a wildcat strike.

Once TOTUS gets everything it wants through arbitration, it’ll be back on the job- only slower and with more ‘attitude’.

Any video evidence of this rare phenomenon? This may be as elusive as a UFO siting, or a siting of Big Foot.

Do you suppose he was able to take time off his golf game to join Toastmasters?

It is a great organization to which I belonged once in a previous life. In six short months, I went from rambling and stammering to being able to speak off the cuff reasonably well. I'd recommend it to anyone, even TOTUS.

I just have to retire and learn how to photoshop.

Wish I could photoshop TOTUS standing (it "panes" me to say this) face down in a soup kitchen line.

He has just switched to a tiny speaker hidden in his ear with someone else feeding him the speech. I am not sure why they did not do this long ago. It would be much easier for those times when they have to have his responses look impromptu. It actually would not suprise me if he had the thing shoved far enough up his ear canal so that camera’s couldn’t pick it up.

I once had a guy on my crew who snored loudly at night. It was uncomfortable using full size foam ear plugs, so I cut a couple way down. Unfortunately when I tried to pull one of them out it got pushed further up into my ear. My wife was able to get it out with tweasers, but she could hardly see it. I almost ended up going to the doctor.

And here's a transcript of the Speech:

"I, uh, ummm, well, I ummm, uh, uh, I, uh, where was that piece of paper, uh I, me, me and Michelle, uh, I, ummm. Nevermind."

Doesn't this coward ever give speeches to adults who can think for themselves?

Old photo, from early on when he was addressing an early elementary class. Posted as a reminder, I’m sure.

Maybe he has an ear implant and someone is feeding him the text of the speech and he just repeats it. (he-he-he)

What was remarkable about the co-appearance with Merkle is that while Obama occasionally looked up from his prepared speech, Merkle lonked down at her notes only very, very briefly , by comparison.

A very interesting contrast between Angela speaking from the heart and Baraq is struggling to keep track of contrivances.

“in his standard 6-10 word cadence. just like a robot.”

He’ll fit right in at the “Hall of Presidents” at Disney World. Funny story - we’re sitting there watching the show and George Washington is speaking. My 7 (?) year old daughter whispers “I didn’t think he was still alive!”

I whispered back on how they are just mechanical dummies. A litte bit later President Lincoln is talking, and he has what looks like note cards in his hand. (May have been an eyeglass case). She leans over and says “He needs to use notecards because he’s just a dummie”.

I think he's been seeing a speech therapist and has learned
to substitute the words "I" and "me" for "umm" and "ahh."

This administration would never tell you what really happened.
