    This picture is from the third debate. Really Obama, and ear piece, whats the matter, cannot think up enough lies on your own you needed help. I bet the teleprompter is home crying you did not use him.

        Interesting that a leftie wants to talk Photoshop.  How about that Photoshopping of a Certificate of Live Birth, followed up by a forged long form birth certificate.  You guys walk on thin ice with nonsense ya know?

          First of all, I resent you calling me a "lefty" since I've stated COUNTLESS times on this site that I AM NOT A DEMOCRAT. Second, if you want to continue with the birther crap you might as well go and live in Trump Towers and take out your frustrations in Donald's Rubber Room.

      I would suspect that Obama requires a small army of fact checkers to consult every time Romney opens his mouth.

        This fact checker can handle Obama by myself.  Another sheeple on the graze I see.

          I have no idea what you're talking about.



          However, I do understand what you're saying there.

          Seems rather bewildering one would draw such a conclusion after talking gibberish.

      I gotta say ... Why either guy would need an ear piece for that debate would be beyond me.  Same old talking points.   I don't care who you are.  If you're totally honest with yourself, watching this debate was kind of like what it'd be like watching  old people screw.   It was just that bad in my opinion.

    Now that this has surfaced I know why Obama was nodding his head at the strangest times during the debate. No teleprompter so out comes the ear piece.  Amazing and totally stupid as is the man who was using it.

    I would expect him to use any tool to help him do the best possible job.

      Including having someone else tell him what to say?  How original of you and Obama.  Have another  swig of Koolaid...

    Lots of blogs (mostly right-wing leaning) are reporting this, but at least a few sites have claimed that the picture is photo-shopped.  I agree that it would not be good for the Obama camp if this is true, but I'm not ready to buy it just yet.

      Yes and Benghazi was about a You Tube film clip.  Uh huh...  Sure it was...

      I would hope that anyone considering themself a journalist would find the source of the picture and compare it to raw footage.  Not that I care either way if he uses one.

        You wouldn't care if Obama cheated in a debate? Really?

          That's the "sheeple mentality" Jaxson.  Anything necessary to continue the destruction that Obama can bring upon this nation.  He needs his handlers to tell him what to say next.  If anyone noticed his mannerisms during the debate, at time he was lipping something to someone.  Just go back and watch closely and you'll see it.  I wondered about it at the time.  The rules agreed upon were no teleprompters or other aids.

          This I gotta hear.

          How is wearing an earpiece cheating? What could he possibly be cheating in an open debate?

    You forgot to say allegedly smile It's hard to tell whether or not it is true. You have to believe something like that is easy to fake. I somehow doubt that it is true but people will believe what they want to believe.

      And after consuming the information, without applying any critique whatsoever, will resort to calling others "sheeple".

    I don't know if giving speeches is for some reason completely different, but when I sang in musical performances, I wore earpieces to monitor to my voice. This is very common in the music industry, and is actually more commonly seen in the form of a small amp turned to face the microphone stand. The earpieces are more exclusive to actors in musicals and plays, because the amps would interfere with the aesthetics of the set. Talking may be different as it doesn't require constant monitoring of pitch in relation to music, however, when giving speeches some of the same elements such as projection and dictation are employed.

    Has it occurred to you that the PRESIDENT of the United States may need to be able to be contacted at all times? Perhaps that is why he was wearing an earpiece.

    Or, it was for monitoring purposes. Which is more likely.
