Obama supporters decry his lack of teleprompter at first debate
Legal Insurrection ^ | Friday, October 5, 2012 | Anne Sorock

Obama supporters lined up to greet the president in Madison, Wisc., on Thursday. While there, they were asked by Rebel Pundit if they thought it was fair that Obama didn’t have his teleprompter at the debate this week. Pure video gold

I just saw the FOX news interviews with young skulls full of mush.
Most could not imagine why he could not have his cheat sheet
(teleprompter).
America can not survive with the attitude of today’s youth.

Someone has to type Barack's responses into the 'prompter.

If Barack "wins" the debate, who gets the credit?

“Well Hes’ Smoooooooooth” That was funny and I do appreciate the young lady at the end who thinks they should
both be able to use a teleprompter. What the hell is wrong
with people. I think I will start using a TelePrompTer for my daily interactions with my husband.

Yet they complain because Romney had a handkerchief on the podium! Ok, ok ... give Obama a teleprompter and one for Romney and the outcome would have been the same. Fair is fair.

More evidence to support the contention that if we started a civil war against the left we’d win hands down.

Do these kids at U of W even know WHAT a debate is????

I can see why we wouldn’t want a president who can think on his feet without a canned speech loaded to go on his teleprompter. You wouldn’t want a president who made the rest of Americans feel stupid by comparison because he could speak articulately without prepared remarks. < /sarc >

Well.... listen to this, then.

Howard Stern's MAN ON THE STREET INTERVIEWS.

From this thread...

Howard Stern Does It Again: Interviews Obama Supporters in Harlem, Hilarity Ensues

"What did the Stern crew learn? Well, among other things, they discover Osama Bin Laden isn’t dead, Romney is pro-choice, Obama is pro-life, and Paul Ryan is Obama’s running mate."

Obama doesn’t write his own speeches, so if he’s going to use a teleprompter, why not just have the actual speechwriter deliver the speech or better yet, just have an empty chair with a microphone on it delivering the audio.

I wonder if I can use a teleprompter in a job interview? Probably wouldn’t get hired. Probably, unless the interviewer graduated from UW.

No, but it wouldn’t surprise. He’s a regular Chatty Cathy and a perfect tool. His minders, Jarrett, Axelrod, Soros & Co., they pull his string and he sounds just great.

The Barry doll: A dozen life-like, presidential-sounding phrases! “Make no mistake about it,” “Let me be clear,” “What a great crowd!” “Folks, I’m hearin’ ya!” and he even does two Negro accents: NAACP and militant.

The only problem is, he can’t really think for himself. Dems accuse Romney of being a Ken doll? Obama didn’t even look life-like the other night. He’s toast. Mene mene tekel upharsin. He’s got to be dreading the next one.

When one is compelled to start with the mathematical certainty that 49.999...% of the population enters 'adulthood' with below average intelligence,
then factor in militant ignorance, wishful thinking, denial in all it's subtle forms, voluntary substance addling, media treason, and societal pressure toward herd-think,
it's certainly NO mystery why the Founders intended a REPUBLIC from day one !

Shhhh....
Don’t give Obamunists any ideas.

All they have to do is a have a doctor declare Obama to be a FUNCTIONAL RETARD.

Then, DOJ can step in, and demand that a teleprompter be made available for The Messiah, in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Considering these are the same thugs that visited that poor dude that hung an empty chair from a tree with a rope... probably not...

but If they think voodoo is real

Well, considering the spiritual state evidenced by a significant number of this admin's peoples, they are liable to believe just about anything except true Truth...

God help us.

Amen!
