It just amazes me how you people expect us to believe a Harvard Law grad Magna cum laude and head of the Law Review, and college professor is a dunce.

    Bush on the other hand still flubbed when he WAS using a teleprompter. Off the teleprompter they didn't call them don't call them Bushisms for nothing.

    And don't forget the deer in the headlights look where he was frozen in the elementary classroom after the twin towers were hit. Of course we now know Cheney had to take over.
    And you have the audacity to call me "partisan" ^^^.. Umkay sparky..

    Evidence please?


    Keep going and I'll have to slip on the hip waders to answer your posts. Make stuff up much or are ya just startin' out?

    Please. The idea that Palinite-Beckian-Boners suddenly find intelligence a prerequesite is laughable.

    Why do you call for evidence that Bush used a teleprompter less than Obama, but demand no evidence that Obama uses a teleprompter more than anyone else?

    Its the very definition of partisan hypocrisy, but I guess dealing with reality, a reality like "I have no real numbers to back up my statements," is easier when you have no standards.

    Umm.. If evidence suggests that Bush used a teleprompter less than Obama, wouldn't that also prove that Obama used the teleprompter more than Bush?

    Well, hmmm.. Is this something people track anyway? Does one need not only look for individuals that remember the past 10 years? I mean, there may NOT be actual numbers, and even if there were, people would still argue about it, but the fact remians that from my recollection, Bush never used the teleprompter as much as Obama does! He never spent like him either, or taxed, or paid out to the special interest, and lobby, and bought votes.. and you know.. All that jazz..

    Just sayin...

    This from a man that says, "I think no one want's to admit it." Perhaps you might want to work on your verbal skills before you attack somoene elses.

    I think in regards to prepared speeches that there's no comparison between the two. I think when talking off the cuff or casually I think its relatively close and an argument could be made for either side depending on your preference for types of speaking at those points.

    Again, I'll say the teleprompter is a none issue. Technology advances, and people use new technology. Using a teleprompter instead of note cards should be no more grevious then the president using email rather than snailmail.

    Why do you call for evidence that Bush used a teleprompter less than Obama, but demand no evidence that Obama uses a teleprompter more than anyone else?[/quote] Ya know, I'll take either or, but to answer your question and clarify my request the claim was made:

    Maybe the fact that Obama uses the teleprompter MUCH less often than Bush ever did...
    So I want evidence that shows Obama used the teleprompter MUCH less, since that was positioned as a statement of fact.

    It helps when you understand the request in the first place.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Words like corpsman? Did Bush ever thank himself in a speech?



    None of us have any idea what Obama's grades were...are you sure you want to go there?



    If I stand on a stage and tell you that I will heal the earth, stop the sea from rising and spread the wealth around, does that make me intelligent?

    If you believe me when read those things from my teleprompter, does that mean you're gullible?
    Bastinda, consider yourself owned. LOL
