Mondale must be wondering how such an idiot ever got to be president.

Can you believe people voted for a president who has to walk around with a teleprompter under his arm in order to communicate with the American public. Idiocy!

It’s 0bama’s marxist droolings promoting his crypto-marxist agenda that is his undoing.

Without the teleprompter, he is inarticulate.

With the teleprompter, he articulately mouths the same tired old marxist banalities.

57 state Obambie is at a total loss without the teleprompter.

I have always contended that he is not the brilliant messiah
that he was promoted to be.

Why else would all of his academic records be sequestered?

This certainly isn’t the first time the words Walter Mondale and idiot have been used in the same sentence.

A “community organizer” gets out and screams in the streets about the injustice of the “man,” centuries of oppression and how they are going to get even with the system. This tired old harangue rolls easily off the tongue.

This does not prepare a man to speak heart-to-heart with American citizens who, by and large, don’t have grudges or share the same entitlement mentality grievances as the community organizer’s ghetto audience.

On top of that, he lived in the third-world while growing up and associates more with them than with Americans.

On or off prompter, you always hear echoes of the old agitator. Mondale is an idiot if he thinks obama can connect with true Americans if he goes off prompter.

Mondale must be wondering ... why he didn't think of using a teleprompter instead of letting "who he really is" speak instead.

That is, "I'm going to tax your @sses off!", instead of "I'm going to tax corporations to death so that they have no choice but to pass along the tax increases to you in the form of higher prices for energy, food, clothing..."

Obama drunk and saying EXACTLY what he really thinks would probably be a true horror show. It’d make Chavez look like Doctor Seuss.

Am I the only person who thinks he's inarticulate WITH the teleprompter? I have never heard anybody speak with so many stutters, uhs, etc. I think he's a terrible speaker.

You are correct. I take that back.

He is inarticulate WITH the teleprompter.

He is INCOHERENT without it!

Who in the hell ever came up with the idea that Obama is a great speaker. His pauses between sentences are artificial and too long, so the continuity is lost. He seems to be physically stiff and uncomfortable as though he has never seen the text of what he is saying. And his physical gestures, tilting of his head and jutting his chin out, tend to be of an arrogant nature.
This is a video of another punk speaker with the same patterns (maybe this guy also give Chrissy Matthews a chill down his leg)

When Obama speaks without his teleprompter it's like a trip into the past ~ the Stalinist past, and the Kulaks are preparing to be starved to death by the state.

Obviously the man's handlers aren't going to let him give up his teleprompter!

He also relies to heavily on the MSM and communist, socialist, fascist, and racist supporters. He is an idiot.

This is exactly backwards. It should read like this:

President Barack Obama has difficulty speaking directly to the average American, and thus relies to heavily on "idiot" teleprompters.

Mondale mistakes the symptom for the disease.

“Why else would all of his academic records be sequestered?”

BINGO !
This is what I have always believed was ONE of the reasons for not showing his records. The fact is he was an average or less student that was advanced because of the color of his skin. If he had high SAT’s, etc. we would have seen them just like when we were told Gore was so much smarter than Bush because he scored 50-100 pts higher on his SAT tests.

Obama uses a form of speaking called NLP which is designed to bypass the logic areas of your brain. You must be immune.

I was always told that it's a poor musician who blames the instrument.

I submit that the teleprompter is merely an inanimate tool. Rather it is the user of said instrument who should be mantled with the term "idiot."

Direct quote from Barak Obama's teleprompter blog:

"Big Guy says stimulus will create 3.5 million new jobs, depending on how many Republicans get hired a month from now"

Zero needs to drop the teleprompter and go to video glasses.

He could go for the "Joe Cool - Community Organizer" look:

Or the futuristic Star Trek - Geordi La Forge look:

I'm with you. I never did think he was much of a orator. He did fine the first time I heard him when he was just an upstart senator giving an address at Kerry's DNC convention, but then I learned later is a compilation of others words, and not his own. And he was reading a teleprompter.

Well, it is warm, but I am loving it here on my beach.

I’m wondering how he comes across at all those parties he has at the White House? I am sure there are lots of beers involved and you know what they say, loose lips, sink ships. But all the participants must by of like mind anyway.

Obama usually speaks...

with a short phrase...

and another short phrase...

followed by a slightly longer, finishing flourish.

To be fair to Mondale, “idiot board” is the slang name for teleprompters in the communications industry.

It doesn’t mean that the teleprompter is an idiot. It means the USER is an idiot, incapable of saying anything without being prompted.

That’s about right.
