  • Obama's secret teleprompter coach revealed

    Barack Obama, the purported master orator, is spending a hundred thousand dollars of our tax money on an outside consultant to help him with his teleprompter skills. Perhaps last minute coaching is the reason why Sunday night's OBL speech was delayed so long. The hundred grand comes on top of the $624,000 payroll of the White House speechwriting team, so Obama's masterful oratory is costing us close to three quarter of million bucks a year. With that kind of money, Gilbert Gottfried could sound good. Jim McElhatton of the Washington Times has the scoop: The White House is spending...

    HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Hubert "Hub" Schlafly, a key member of the team that invented the teleprompter and rescued decades' worth of soap opera actors, newscasters and politicians from the embarrassment of stumbling over their words on live television, has died. He was 91. Schlafly died April 20 at Stamford Hospital after a brief illness, according the Leo P. Gallagher & Son Funeral Home, which handled the arrangements.

He can be considered a sputnik moment decades in the making when he invented the teleprompter way back in the 40's.

However, a sketch artist with help from an anonymous witness was able to capture the president's reaction...

    It's amazing how times have changed. In mid-2004, President George W. Bush was still in his first term while Barack Obama was only a newly-elected State Senator. One other difference: Mr. Obama had "never" used a teleprompter before. Of course, today the President has not delivered a single speech during his Administration without one. Yet with the 2004 Democratic National Convention on the horizon, Mr. Obama decided that he would work from one. Talking to CBS in 2004, Obama said that he "prefers to speak off the cuff instead of working from a written text. Tuesday night (the DNC) will...

    For as long as I can remember scientists have been trying to put together a Theory of Everything which would explain and connect all the knowledge we have of physical phenomena. So far they haven't been successful, but they keep trying. I wondered if it would be possible to explain the many contradictions of Obama and the mystery of his origins and incomprehensible nature of his domestic and foreign policies to better understand him and predict why he seems to be steering the ship of state onto the shoals. I think I've finally got it, though a night of watching...

    So -- no endgame or exit strategy, a slightly imploring tone and the emergence of an Obama Doctrine: Got it. As to theater criticism, President Obama's use of three teleprompters for his speech tonight underscored why his reliance on the TOTUS is so problematic. Gazing left to right is not great television -- he wasn't making a connection. Only when the president stopped looking around and stared into the head-on camera at the end did his message sound urgent, direct and authoritative.

    More than 400 amendments were filed Monday night. Among them were a proposal from Rep. Steve Womack, R-Ark., to eliminate funding for the president's Teleprompter and one from Rep. Randy Neugebauer, R-Texas, to strip funding for the alteration, repair or improvement of the executive residence of the White House and instead divert that amount to deficit reduction. Most of the amendments will probably come from House Republicans, not Democrats, who want deeper cuts than the $100 billion. This will go on for two days, with a final vote culminating sometime on Thursday.

    Subject: Obama's last two speeches: Tucson Radio Address While contributors to Freerepublic often wonder in print whether or not the GOP truly got the message from the Tea Party in the mid-term elections, IMHO it's easy to see who definitely received it loud and clear: Obama's handlers. The Tucson speech was delivered at a relaxed pace, the writing was smoother, the transitions more effective. The new Obama baritone was deeper, more soothing. The style was less confrontational and a whole lot less bombastic. The inevitable digs at the Republicans were subtle, rather than obvious. Some faults remain. The man is...

    President Barack Obama quietly breached years of protocol on Saturday morning by leaving the White House without the press with him. About two hours before reporters were supposed to be in position to leave with the president, Obama left the grounds of the White House. Members of the press were told he was attending one of his daughter's soccer games in northwest Washington, D.C. The White House press corps traditionally travels with the president anywhere he goes, inside and outside the country, to report on the president's activities for the benefit of informing the public and for historical record.
