Mondale to Obama: Ditch the 'idiot boards'
Former Vice President Walter Mondale suggested in an interview today President Obama stop relying on "idiot boards" -- teleprompters, that is -- to deliver his message to the American people.
"He uses these idiot boards to read speeches in television, and I think he loses the connection that he needs emotionally with American voters," Mondale said in an interview set to air this evening on CNNs The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, according to a transcript from the network.
"Idiot board" is a term used in television and movie production to refer to boards held up for performers to read off.
"If you're looking at the teleprompter, you're here, you're here, you're here and you're -- your audience is right there," Mondale said. "And I think he needs to do more of that."
Mondale didn't suggest that Obama needed the teleprompter.
"The Milwaukee speech, I thought was -- was terrific. I think some of these backyard events are terrific," said Mondale, who called Obama "I ...think he's very bright -- as a matter of fact, brilliant," he said.
But while Obama's supporters have dismissed conservative mockery of the device by pointing to the president's ability to operate fluently without it, Mondale suggests that it's a real and symbolic element of his difficulty, at times, connecting.
Yes, Mr President. Please follow Walter Mondale’s campaign advice. You couldn’t find a better source of winning ideas.
Best he could do is get rid of the “boards”...because the idiot would still be there...
Here is Obama without his teleprompters.
Of course...Mondale is too stupid to understand that..........
Wow! I’ve never agreed with Mondale before!!
It would render Zero mute.
Is there one concrete example of when ObaMao operated fluently without his teleprompter?
Obama: “but Walt...I have no spine nor brain and full of it, the prompter is my brain”
Leftists like 0bama tend to “slip” when they’re not on script and they let us know their true beliefs. This is not conducive to deceiving people as they must in order to maintain power.
So, what's the problem?
The blind adoration these people have for their false Messiah is truly amazing. Anyone with a brain and the eyes to see will know that Obama is nothing but a dope. The blind and unthinking worship of Obama by the 'Rats is nothing less than pathological.
Have you heard him off-Idiot boards?
Have a listen [this video goes on for over 7 minutes]:
as evidenced by Mondale’s assertion that oboingo is “brilliant”... unless of course he meant brilliant idiot.
“umm...GWB...ummm...Fox News...umm...Rush Limbaugh”
Message stays the same, it just takes longer.
