    Trump's decision to give a set of remarks — with the aid of a teleprompter — earlier this week is just one example of how the candidate is lazy and unwilling to go about the traditional means of campaigning, Plouffe said. "It's so offensive as a practitioner," he said. "Get on your plane and go to Ohio. It's not that complicated … I think he's actually quite lazy. He's lazy." Plouffe, who is now an adviser at Uber, went on to say that Trump is "not doing basic things" that are expected, or required, of a major party's nominee, such...

    If confidence monitors [i.e., monitors placed in the speaker’s field of view but out of sight of the audience] are dangerous, a teleprompter is even more so. On the face of it, it’s a brilliant invention. It places the words on a glass screen invisible to the audience bu right in the speaker’s line of sight. So a speaker can read a speech while also maintaining constant eye contact with the audience. But its ingenuity is also its Achilles’ heel. If you use one of these you’re in danger of communicating to the audience, I’m pretending to look at you,...

    I don’t understand what motivates Chris Christie.” That’s one of Senator Ben Sasse’s softer statements during our conversation Wednesday morning. We’re talking about the New Jersey governor’s recent endorsement of Donald Trump. After multiple media appearances this week following his declaration that he would not vote for Trump under any circumstance, Sasse can lambast the Republican front-runner on autopilot. But when reflecting on Trump’s latest string of high-profile surrogates, he struggles for the right words.

    Trump's teleprompter challenge trips up White House By Susan Crabtree • 8/26/15 3:53 PM White House press secretary Josh Earnest got a little tongue-tied Wednesday after being asked what he thought of Donald Trump's suggestion that teleprompters ought to be outlawed. Veteran CBS White House correspondent Mark Knoller asked him if such a uniform ban would affect the president "adversely." Since the 2008 presidential campaign, Obama has been known for his reliance on tele-prompters to deliver speeches and often rambles without one. "I don't have any … well … that's a tough one to respond to," Earnest admitted amid some...

    The White House reacted to Donald Trump’s suggestion on the campaign trail that teleprompters should be banned in America for presidential candidates, an allusion to President Obama’s heavy use of the device while delivering speeches. “Is that something that would affect the president adversely?” asked White House reporter Mark Knoller during the daily press briefing. Earnest admitted that it was a difficult question to respond to but that each candidate should choose for themselves.

    During a joint press conference at the White House with the President of Afghanistan that was intended to demonstrate the close cooperation between the two nations, President Barack Obama accidentally called his counterpart by the wrong name. Obama met with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani earlier in the day to discuss U.S. troop withdrawals in the war-torn country. But at the press conference, Obama referred to him as “Karzai...

  • Obama’s legacy: When did the teleprompter break?

    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....

    President Obama strolled out to the podium today in San Jose, CA and was immediately at a loss for words. Not only did the President not have teleprompter, his aides forgot his speech. “My remarks are not sitting here,” the President declared awkwardly. “I’m uhhh….people….oh goodness….uhhhh...folks are sweating back there right now.”

    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."

TOTUS, blindfolded and held hostage at the Holiday Inn Express In the early days following TOTUS’ disappearance, Big White spokesboy Jay-C said investigators “could not rule out terrorism.” “The dangers posed to the free world by this heinous act can not be overstated.” Jay-C went on to explain this kidnapping could not have come at a worse time as Big Guy’s backup, TOTUS-Too, was also out of service, preventing Big Guy from doing any public speaking. TOTUS-Too has a nervous breakdown and shatters...

    It was no Republican plot, but someone made off with the teleprompter that has been the subject of conservative jokes about President Obama. Also stolen were the presidential seals. And Obama’s lectern. In fact, Eric Brown stole enough equipment from the office of the president that he could have staged his own presidential news conference — if he hadn’t pawned some of the gear at shops in Prince George’s and Montgomery counties. In federal court in Virginia on Thursday, the Richmond man, 49, was sentenced to seven years in prison for brazenly taking a truck containing $200,000 worth of audio...

    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.

But no problem: According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, staff and bus drivers will be summoned back to work for the day to accomodate Obama’s appearance. College Heights Early Childhood Learning Center Principle Suzanne Kennedy alerted parents that the staff will interrupt their vacations for the “amazing opportunity” for students to “expand their worlds” by seeing the president: President Obama’s visit is an honor for College Heights and the City Schools of Decatur. Since the school...

    They can kill people unnecessarily, uncompassionately and unfairly unless possessed only by the proper authorities. Yesterday, deeply concerned about the end of the world predicted for today, I was faced with making a difficult decision: should I drink all of my remaining rum or save a bit for later? I enjoyed a tot or two and decided not to decide. Instead, I consulted my highly placed confidential source at the White House concerning the World's second gravest concern, privately owned weapons. This encouraging article, showing how far President Obama is ahead of us all, resulted. According to my confidential informant,...
