    Rush Limbaugh and many of his right wing cohorts said that Obama needs a teleprompter to speak.  Well I guess he dispelled that in this last debate .  Although he could have been wearing high tech contact lenses that were really teleprompters.  Your thoughts.

    Hahaha, too funny! The "Although he could have been wearing high tech contact lenses that were really teleprompters," seriously cracked me up. I've never heard anyone (sane) criticize Obama on his oratory skills beyond saying he pauses often and sometimes takes a moment to find the word he's looking for. Not speaking for policies or character or anything else, just that the extreme criticisms of Obama's speaking skills (teleprompter-hahahaha-teleprompter is sometimes all I seem to hear) are ridiculous.

    Barack Obama has spoken extemporaneously how many times now? Thousands!
    Primary and campaign in 2008.
    How many non-scripted interactions as POTUS?
    Campaigning now.
    Does he have a teleprompter at every rally?
    At every meeting with every head of state?
    lol lol

    The teleprompter myth has about as much veracity as the birther myth.

    Thanks for pointing out that the originator of this fallacy is none other then Rush Limbaugh. I've seen numerous people here quote the telepromptor nonsense. Never knew where they were getting it from. Dumb dittoheads!

        Last I checked Barack is projected to win roughly 280 EV.

        You only need 270 to win.

        Facts hurt, don't they?

          Democrat facts? They don't hurt me, Obama loses and after seeing him speak tonight I think he is gonna be relieved. He now knows he is in way over his head.


          By the way
