    President Obama seemed a little off his teleprompter game Wednesday in Kansas City. His usual stirring comments about roads and bridges, economic patriotism and lambasting Republicans for their terribleness were beset by a lot of pauses, stutters and stammers.
  • Obama’s legacy: When did the teleprompter break?

    05/25/2014 6:07:15 PM PDT · by Impala64ssa · 37 replies
    Historians may have a tough time trying to determine certain aspects of the Obama presidency. There is no doubt that he is the first black president. School is still out as to whether Obama is the worst president, but Jimmy Carter has been a lot happier lately. The real question about Barack Obama that may be debated for decades is when did the teleprompter break? Watching the president do his best to explain away the latest scandal involving the Veteran’s Administration was a classic case of hubris in action. Barack Obama does not resemble a Greek tragedy, he is one....

    Sixty-one percent of Americans polled, who watched President Obama's prime-time speech, told CNN that they support his policy towards Syria. Since some surveys showed as much as two-thirds opposition to military action against Syria in the days before the speech, the poll suggests that he did what presidents rarely do: change people's minds, if only temporarily. How did he do it? In only 15 minutes, President Obama made his points, simply and straightforwardly. Anyone arguing a controversial case in the court of public opinion can learn from what he said and how he said it:

    President Obama’s teleprompter may be more valuable than even his biggest critics claim. After all, a man who stole Obama’s teleprompter was sentenced to seven years in federal prison. "The theft of government property is a serious offense," Assistant U.S. Attorney Roderick Young said during Virginia resident Eric Brown’s sentencing hearing. "It's all the more serious when the property belongs to the White House Communications Agency."

    A career criminal who stole a truck containing President Obama's audio equipment was sentenced Thursday to seven years in federal prison. Sentencing guidelines called for a term of about three years, but Eric Brown of Richmond, Va., agreed to the longer sentence to avoid prosecution for 14 similar truck thefts in three localities. However, he could still face charges in Stafford County, which did not join Chesterfield, Hanover and Henrico counties in the agreement.

    The term “cleaned his clock” took on a whole new meaning at Wednesday night’s first presidential debate. An energized and textbook perfect Mitt Romney dominated a lethargic and tired-looking Barack Obama. To sum up the former governor’s performance, he outhustled, outfacted, outenergized and outinformed the incumbent. The lopsidedness of the verbal brawl was not lost on liberal ideologues such as Bill Maher and Chris Matthews who were quick to raise the white flag in round one of three televised debates this month. It was as if Romney’s insomnia-inducing convention speech had never happened. The former governor commanded the stage focusing...

    Thousands of President Obama supporters turned out in in Madison, Wisc., for a rally following Wednesday night’s debate in Denver. The mood was somber, to say the least, as they waited to enter Bascom Mall at the University of Wisconsin Thursday afternoon. University of Wisconsin students and fellow Wisconsinites had mixed reviews on the president's performance. I talked to supporters of the president who had watched the debate, asking how they thought the president did. One after the other said they were left unimpressed and “not inspired,” seemingly depressed and lethargic in their continuing support of the president. More than...

But it wasn't until today that TOTUS officially became part of the mainstream media lexicon courtesy of this slideshow via Reuters, which should explain just who pulls the strings.

    One cannot help noticing the struggle between Barack Obama’s natural instincts and the serene and benevolent persona he projects to the world. Beneath the visage of a cosmetically populist, post-racial, post-partisan reformer who wants to “perfect” America and to have “millionaires and billionaires” “pay their fair share” is just another condescending, self-important, sarcastic, academic liberal Democrat, who believes in false consciousness and in scholastic theories that success in life can be attributed to birth or luck or community but not to individual effort and grit. Obama may be talented at self-fashioning, but he cannot maintain his public face constantly. The...

    President Obama is weaning himself off his teleprompter. At recent campaign events in Pennsylvania, Virginia and again Monday in Ohio, Obama spoke to crowds in high school gymnasiums and at crowded outdoor events without his teleprompter, instead using written notes. The difference is dramatic. Instead of turning in his characteristic manner from right to left and back again, reading from the two sloping, clear-plastic planes of his teleprompter, Obama has glanced down at pages in a binder on his podium. Team Obama thinks the switch, or partial switch — the president is not giving up the teleprompter entirely — will...

Thomas Lifson toys with the notion that Obama might in fact have secret sons, as a way of making sense of the seeming insanity of it. Selwyn Duke suggests it might indicate brain damage from Obama's (presumably) past drug use. (Funny, isn't it, how often one is left no choice but merely to presume about the Cipher-in-Chief.) David Paulin asks whether Obama might be the victim of a teleprompting prankster/saboteur. All of these are reasonable speculations --...

Instead he pronounced the word as Bow - to been at the waist, the front of a boat, or limb of a tree. Wonder if it was the first time he had read or heard the scriptural passage?
