Wait...he uses a teleprompter?

Wait a minute here. Obama uses a teleprompter? Didn't we talk about this some way back when? Oh yeah we did.

Turns out he uses it more than any other President before. Hmm...I knew he was young but I guess he still needs a pacifier sometimes.

I thought he was so smart that he would these problems that Bush caused fixed in no time at all. I guess that isn't so either.

Some change we get. From a President who makes malaprops sometimes and can laugh about them to one who is scripted he can't speak intelligently without a teleprompter.

Perhaps he can write intelligently though, eh Corky?

He gets so much credit for being a brilliant orator, but someone else is writing his speeches. Kathleen Sibelius was thrown for a loop, when after his introduction of her as the new HHS nominee, she stepped to the podium and the teleprompters were retracted below. He was the first president to start his first press conference with a teleprompter. Such prompters allow him to look up and over the audience, as he watches the seas parting behind them.

I guess but it seems that his Wunderkind Favreau is getting all the credit.
