Here goes the teleprompter-in-chief. He tripped over the word Eisenhower!!!!!

He never studied American history in any of his fancy schools.
And he has not written very many speeches in his own history.

He is totally reliant on the words someone has put in front of him. He is so arrogant that he b’lieves he can fool all of the people all of the time - without even trying.

Well, the Chosen one has started speaking. Acting like he has a clue what he is reading about. I fear it will be “The Longest Speech.”

I hope the Rangers can make it to the top of the cliff and take out the teleprompters...

He’s not connected to what he’s saying . . . there’s no emotion in his voice. He’s reading a speech. That’s all.

Brown tried to turn this into the job is only half done and we must have a global one world order.

Disgusting.

I tried to get Sarkozy’s speech on replay but caught Brown. Now I have Obama but it sounds like nothing more than a speech. No emotional value so I’m shutting it off.

Sticking with the folks here with real heartfelt memories and gratitude.

Here he goes with demeaning the Allied forces, saying they weren't perfect...they made their share of mistakes. What an a-hole!

Others can read from a teleprompter without having the screens set up above their line of sight. Why does Obama have to have them set so he always acquires the Mussolini posture while reading from them?

Does he do it for that purpose, so he looks all snobby and stuff with his nose stuck in the air, or does he just not know any better?

I mean, in that pose, if it rained, he’d drown.

I’m awaiting the explanation for the utter classless act of spitting in the face of our French hosts.

Will the media even bother to give us one. Or do we just go with the usual third world explanation that like the UK, the French are colonialists.

Obama is .....not representing Americans today. (self-edit)

Apologies to all of France for our classless representative refusing the gracious hosts.
