Honestly, it has surprised me the number of unflattering photos of Obama, I have seen, that accompany stories about him in the MSM

Like they used to say about Charlie Pride, “how can anybody who sounds so white look so black”?

If he complains, point out that it doesn’t make his ears look big.

Charlie Pride is a timeless classic. I grew up during the 60s and 70s listening to his music. I got to see him this past Jan in Nashville!! He was awesome!!!

The teleprompter imediately distanced itself from Obama saying “This idiot does not represent my views. I’m a clean slate, yet when I’m forced to project a liberal message I feel nauseous. However, since my fellow teleprompters have a huge unemployment number (i.e. 2010 elections), I will toe the line and say “Obama is the face of America”

That picture captures the truest essence of Obozo that I’ve seen since the cretin first came upon the public scene.

Romney and both Ryan appear to speak “off the cuff”, or with very few notes.

Dude, putting “Free Republic.com” on that podium is a mistake because it suggests that Lenin is speaking for Free Republic. Correct, please.

I thought about it, but no, it's really an ad for FR. Anyone who sees it and follows it here will understand the difference right away.

If you want it without the ad, feel free to use this one...

It appears to me that the teleprompter is trying to take over. I once saw a movie where the wooden dummy on the lap of the ventriloquist took over because he was the real brains.
