When you use it in the manner Obama does..yes.
It should be a reminder at most. Not used to read verbatim back and forth like your watching a tennis game. He doesn't give speech's he reads at you.
There has never been a President so reliant on reading whatever he has to say as Obama. Those who had access to such technology used it in the same manner as paper notes. They used it as a reminder of what they where sayign not as a book.
IE Bill Clinton gave a State of the Union after remarking that the speech in the Teleprompter was not the right one. Like every President but Obama he didn't need it..it wasn't a crutch.
Its clear as day Obama does not know what he is going to be reading at you other then the general overall gist.
The 'Great Orator' claim has fallen flat on its face.
