Looks like Uh-Bama’s handlers have decicded that they’re tired of his many, many, many, many, many gaffes. I guess they were tired of all the gaffes and faux pas or something, sick of all of the uh’s, um’s, and you know’s, the st-st-st-stammering… just wishing they could have their Great Orator back. So what’s the solution? A traveling teleprompter!
It appears Barack Obama’s teleprompter is hitting the campaign trail.
The Democratic presidential nominee has never tried to hide the fact he delivers speeches off the device, though normally he doesn’t use one at standard campaign rallies and town hall events.
But the Illinois senator used a teleprompter at both his Colorado events Monday — making for a particularly peculiar scene in Pueblo, where the prompter was set up in the middle of what is normally a rodeo ring.
But… but… but… I thought he was Mr. Eloquence! I thought he was a great speech giver like John F Kennedy and Ronald Reagan! Surely, surely, he doesn’t need a teleprompter on the campaign trail with him… does he?
This is such a letdown. I don’t think I’ve been this heartbroken since I found out that NOW doesn’t support Sarah Palin. It’s just that shocking.
