UW Madison Students: 'Unfair' That Obama Couldn't Use Teleprompter in Debate
Breitbart.com ^ | 10/5/2012 | Rebel Pundit

Posted on 10/05/2012 8:24:27 PM PDT by Beave Meister

Thousands of President Obama supporters turned out in in Madison, Wisc., for a rally following Wednesday night’s debate in Denver. The mood was somber, to say the least, as they waited to enter Bascom Mall at the University of Wisconsin Thursday afternoon. University of Wisconsin students and fellow Wisconsinites had mixed reviews on the president's performance.

I talked to supporters of the president who had watched the debate, asking how they thought the president did. One after the other said they were left unimpressed and “not inspired,” seemingly depressed and lethargic in their continuing support of the president.

More than half the people I asked, who thought the president could have done better, said “it wasn’t fair” that President Obama was not allowed to use his teleprompter in the debate. And while a handful of supporters did say teleprompters had no place in the debate, one thought it was not only unfair to President Obama but both candidates.

As my dad use to say to these kinds of idiots, "You must be one of those guys who went to college and got dumber."

So Obama supporters are admitting their messiah is dumber than a bucket of rocks and needs a teleprompter in order to sound semi intelligent

And these people are in college? Studying what? What were their SAT scores? Did they get a bonus for having a “liberal” mind? When will they graduate, 5,6 or 7 years?

I hope he does use one in the next debate and it malfunctions where he’s giving answers to the next question or just goes all mumbly on him.

And what would be on the Teleprompter? Should he also get the questions in advance? Romney kicked his *ss, he should tell him go ahead use your TelePrompTer and look like a buffoon! Or let his debate coach John Kerry stand up there with him.

Well, I saw this interview tonight on FOX. No, this is NOT the Onion, either. Lots of them actually had to t.h..i..n..k about it before answering. We were laughing our fannies off, shaking our heads and then saying as my mom used to say... “If you’re THAT stupid, you shouldn’t be allowed to vote!”

These colleej stewdentz r tmoroze leederz. Makes a momma proud, huh? Are they getting their fair shake at UW Madison?

God help us.

At the end of the debate I thought it would have been hillarious if Romney had pulled out a tiny Teleprompter (TOTUS as Rush says) and flopped it down on bammy’s podium.

Maybe Saturday Night Live will pull something like that!

Absolutely incredible! I couldn’t believe what these kids were saying — and with straight faces.

Lou Dobbs mentioned that O spoke for 4+ minutes more than Romney. But he wasted a minute by using the “ahs” and “ers” and the usual O speak when he doesn’t have the words written out for him.

I can hardly wait to see The New Yorker cover when it comes out! Another good one would be the empty chair and the teleprompters.

It appears the youngsters know the real purpose of teleprompters are. They can be used for clandestine crib notes that many of the students use to cheat on exams.

LOL. More proof Obama has the questions in advance.

I think Romney should spot him a teleprompter and then go in without one. He’d win anyway.

I haven't seen it discussed, but I'm certain that I saw a plastic insert around Zer0’s right ear, colored more like Caucasian skin. It appeared to be a piece of molded plastic, maybe 3/4 of an inch tall, pre-molded to his ear shape, in a lighter skin color. I taped the debate, I'll go back and look again!

Anybody else see this???

I would have fired every last one of them. America gives ample opportunity to everyone. If you are a communist that believes in government communism, I suggest you work in a communist country. We are a free society that gives a days pay for a days work. No work, No pay.

That’s why teachers support Obama..they know that with a Democrat in the White House they can get away with being idiots and not teaching kids anything except to be a far lefty. If teachers were required to pass a test to prove they are qualified to be teachers you would see a lot of these garbage teachers being thrown out on their asses

I hope he does use one in the next debate and it malfunctions where he’s giving answers to the next question or just goes all mumbly on him.

Then you wouldn't be able to distinguish it from the first debate.

I am surprised they didn’t think not being able to use his Blackberry was wrong. The president should be able to Google an answer during the debate. And have a lifeline. And poll the audience.

These comments come from young people who believe that they only need to learn how to think and express themselves. They feel no need to learn facts as they can be found on a computer at any time.

Many college courses have no final exam these days. Students write a paper instead. IMHO the profs don't want to find out how little the students have actually learned (internalized knowledge) in their classes.

We students cheat with our smartphones, the President’s using a teleprompter is no different. In Leftyland, the ends justify the means. How you got your answer does not matter. Only “winning” matters. Honor? Honesty? Integrity? Archaic values.

I saw a bit of this and had to turn the sound down after a bit, it kept going and going and my head kept spinning and spinning.

Do these numbnuts understand what a DEBATE is? How the hell are you going to have/use a teleprompter in a debate?

God have mercy on this country. Please.

UW Madison Students: 'Unfair' That Obama Couldn't Use Teleprompter in Debate

Dear UW Madison morons :

Using a teleprompter for a debate is exactly like being allowed to use a cell phone during final exams.

If you really believe that is "fair," any professor worth his credentials should be taking a second look at your latest finals, and I challenge the legitimacy of your final grades...

18-year-olds voting? I’ll stick my neck out and say that not one of them has learned enough and witnessed enough to make a
thoughtful choice for a political leader. Many never will, regardless of age, and we can only hope they have something else to do instead of going to the polls.

The GOP better get some expert consultants on board to sweep the next debate site for clandestine transmitters.
The record of the Obama regime suggests that they have no problem ignoring the constitution, laws, ethics, morals or the use of electronics to game the system.

It would not surprise me at all if Obama didn't have a dozen "experts" behind the curtain trying to feed him the 'best' answers. The guy is a functional ignoramus, who can't possibly learn on the this job. His shortcomings are too obvious in all subjects that matter.

“It would not surprise me at all if Obama didn’t have a dozen “experts” behind the curtain trying to feed him the ‘best’ answers.”

I don’t think it would have done him any good in this last debate. He was so messed up or high that he wouldn’t have understood what was being said to him.
