    Teleprompter to make its debut in Parliament when Obama speaks

    I honestly don't know what is more embarrassing, the thought of Obama having to rely on a teleprompter because he's too damn stupid to speak without it, or the prospect of having the imbecile go before a foreign Parliament and ah & uming, stuttering and stammering his way through a speech a 12 year old could deliver with more finesse, than this idiot.

    I am honestly amazed that anyone can still make the dubious claim that Obama is somehow even marginally intelligent. If he is so smart why are his school records locked away and hidden from view?

    Don't listen to me. Listen to Obama on his own ah, um, ah, ah, um, words?




    Teleprompter to make its debut in Parliament when Obama speaks - India - DNA

    A teleprompter will be in use for the first time in the Central Hall of Parliament when US President Barack Obama addresses MPs on November eight.

    As per the tentative programme being worked out, the address by Obama, who once said that "America has its roots in the India of Mahatma Gandhi", would not be for more than 20 minutes.

    The president's programme in Parliament House complex itself will be less than an hour affair, Parliament sources said today. It is scheduled to start at 5pm.

    Dude - you're holding too much in. Let it out and say what you feel.

    After watching the Brits on C-Span2 (or is it 3?) chomp on each other and the PM for an entire hour- the jousting, parry, thrust, parry, parry .... all without the benefit of Mr. Teleprompter. It's pretty impressive actually. They have to know what they hell they're talking about or they get run out of town pretty quick. Will there be snickering about it when Obama speaks? Probably - but hey, that's who this country wanted as President - c'est la vie.

    I hope you don't think President Bush was a better speaker than Obama is.

    I wonder if anyone in the Parliment will yell 'You Lie!'... it's not frowned upon there, you know

    Such the Manchurian Candidate.

    Turn that prompter off, and he spits out more umms and uhhs than any president in history. Makes Bush look like Zig Ziglar.

    Oh my freaking gods I am so SICK of hearing about this non-issue crap. Presidents and leaders have used teleprompters since the technology was invented, Obama is no different. Get a new ****ing line

    The Canadian Parliment is the same way. NO teleprompters allowed in there. Harper, although not the most perfect conservative, is ten times more well spoken than Obama. My Gowd, Hoplite, Obama brought a teleprompter in to an elementary school for crying out loud. You have to admit it's a bit much?
