Skip to comments.UW Madison Students: 'Unfair' That Obama Couldn't Use Teleprompter in Debate
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 nights 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 wasnt 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.

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?
UW should be so proud as to turn out such devout idiots.
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.
“Uh, uh, Jim you may want to move on to another topic...” -—Hussein Obammy (Debate #1)
No, No...it’s unfair that the teleprompter has to use Obama.
I thought that was his best line of the night. Taking command of the situation, if you will.
These are probably the same people who told Jesse Watters of FOX/O’Reilly Factor that corporations shouldn’t be allowed to keep their profits...
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.
Life ain’t an open book test.
It is hard to believe that we have so many people who are so stupid, but publik skoolz and the MSM have been trying to get this result for decades
Or maybe they should let him have an oxygen mask to battle the altitude !
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!
Remind me again why we allow 18 year olds to vote?
Affirmative action debates. Then affirmative action elections. They’re coming.
UW Madison Students gush over Obama, blame lack of teleprompter for his poor performance PING!!!
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.
“And these people are in college? Studying what?”
This is University of Wisconsin in Madison...I rest my case...Dumb and Dumber...Useful Idiots...
It looks more and more like UW Madison will not be turning out any of our nations leaders for quite some time.
It was racism!/s
Why not? After all, apparently it simply depends on who you know and how cool you are.
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.
UW Madison, the same place where doctors last year were issuing fake doctor’s notes so they could protest Scott Walker.
Anybody else see this???
Or maybe they should let him have an oxygen mask to battle the altitude !
Next debate at Wolf Pass Colorado, nice bunkhouse at the ranch there quite suitable for the event and it is about el.10000feet
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
How sad they take Obama ads on the video.
think Romney should spot him a teleprompter and then go in without one. Hed win anyway.
I agree, give him a promter and a list of questions to, then switc question and see how he make out, would be a laugh
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.
Hey,kiddos,it works like this. One thing you look for in a president is the ability to think clearly on your feet in a crisis.
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.
I thought the same thing. We students could get straight A’s if we were allowed to use the book and our notes on the test. I wonder if we allowed Medical students to do the same what the result would be
These kids are calling Obama an airhead.
Because they used to be adults who did things such as fight in WWII.
Now though they’re mostly spoiled punks...
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.
