Walter Mondale to Obama: How about you lay off those “idiot boards,” champ?
Hot Air ^ | October 03, 2010 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Apparently it’s affecting his emotional connection with the people. And if anyone’s qualified to opine on connecting with Americans, it’s the guy who lost 49 states to Reagan after serving as Jimmy Carter’s VP.

I love a TOTUS joke as much as the next guy, but … I don’t think he’s joking here.

“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 CNN’s 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.

Wouldn’t help. Even with a teleprompter and his handler he still comes across
as what he is and always will be...a community organizer. Nothing more.

All comments about how stupid Obozo is, have to start off with a statement that he is brilliant, lest the speaker be deemed a racist.

Obamaprompter

Mondale says Zero is "brilliant" as he describes his robotic reading ability. Mondale really ought to look at the evidence of Obama performing his public speaking without his idiot boards. There is nothing "brilliant" about Obama! He is a stuttering fool without them. That is why he cannot live without them.

A community organizer that continues to divide not unite.

Not only politically but racially.

He’s the worse thing that has ever happened to Americans of all colors.

It would have been a great opportunity to unite and a really great moment
in history but he blew it.

Actually the idiot boards helps the idiot in TWO ways...1] Dunham is dumb as a rock [err, ahh, uhh ehh] 2] by using idiot boards the idiot muslim commie usurper can avoid looking at the American peeps regarding the scam he has pulled.

...And then he lost a Senate race recently in the one state he won in '80. He is the only politician I know who has lost an election in every state.

That's Zero, the demagogue in chief. Uniting the rabble in victimhood, hate, and lies. Creating tumult for the sake of disorder and change. Gog/Amalek/Haman, Obama the Agagite.

No surprise that the Hebrew for demagogue is דמגוג , which is to say, Gog 44, the דם גוג "blood of Gog".

It’s awesome!

the TOTUS acronym was kind of cute, but even though it caught on, it didn’t have the emotional impact that this statement has.

“Idiot Boards”. HA!!! It’s PERFECT!!!

It’s absolutely unforgetable, and the best part of it is, it’s courtesy of a Lib, so if anyone tries to get snarky about it, we just shrug our shoulders and point to Fritz!

Seriously, he’s never going to be able to use those things again without causing people to giggle and smirk. And his speaking style is atrocious without them.

I have a dim memory of Walter Mondale. Wasn’t he the one who advised Charlie McCarthy to kick Edgar Bergen to the curb?

Fritz, it's precisely to prevent him from connecting emotionally with the American voters. If that happened, they'd be dumping him all the more quickly.

How must it feel for Obama, to be thoroughly pwned by Walter Mondale? Must feel like being beat up by Pee Wee Herman. Getting a wedgie from Jimmy Carter...

Obozo has simply elevated the same “logic” he applies to the illegals debate to his maladministration, to wit:

They are just doing the work Obozo won’t do!

YUP, all he had to do was be a ‘Bill Cosby’ president.
He had a golden opportunity to implore Black dads to stay with their families and teach his community some personal responsibility.

But once a community rabble rouser always a community rabble rouser. He’d rather have his people get in our face than save some face.

As it is the black-white; rich-poor divide has never been wider.

Actually, if you count Mondales failed try for Wellstones seat he was rejected by all 50 states.

You would think he might have the grace to just slink away into obscurity.

Obungo doesn’t need a teleprompter when out campaigning like he has been doing recently. His act means speaking with more of a black southern accent with preacher cadences. This is what dumbass Americans fell for in 2008. It seems so fake and contrived now. Obungo is in his element trying to stir up the Democrat dullards to troop over to the polls this November

0bungo is incoherent when it comes to governing. Then he is in dire need of the teleprompter. The first affirmative action president ain’t too bright
