    In his library, like Reagan's.

    There's one reason above all others that President Obama uses a teleprompter in delivering most of his speeches: he's good at it.

    Ronald Reagan was the same way. He was more at ease in reading his speech off the dual screens of a teleprompter than looking up and down at a speech text on his lectern.

    Point being that your little partisan jab at Obama failed. Had Bush the ability to use a TelePrompTer, (he lacked the cognitive qualities, and stared at the thing like a dear in the headlights) he too would have used them.

    One of these days I will. However, for now, no.

    Your little partisan failed, because Bush also graduated from Harvard. You have zero sources to back your claim.

    How is my point partisan, I agree Obama uses teleprompters, and pointed out that Reagan did too! You on the other hand, acting as though Obama is the only president to do so, tried to ridicule him for it, lol.

    Not so, George W. Bush. He often got that nervous, deer-in-the-headlights look when giving an address from a teleprompter. He would seem stiff and ill-at-ease. He did not convey a sense of understanding.

    Not yet (there are only thirteen of them), but I have visited a half dozen presidential homes and/or graves.

    Re: Have you ever visited a Presidential Library?

    This thread reminded me of something, I have lived in Georgia for 14 years now and I have never visited the Jimmy Carter Library. However during that same time I have visited the Ronald Reagan Library in California twice.

    The best part about the George W. Bush library is that only about half the books are colored in.

    Just kidding! I have not been to any as of yet.
