Obama’s Safety Net
President Barack Obama doesn’t go anywhere without his TelePrompter.
The textbook-sized panes of glass holding the president’s prepared remarks follow him wherever he speaks.
Resting on top of a tall, narrow pole, they flank his podium during speeches in the White House’s stately parlors. They stood next to him on the floor of a manufacturing plant in Indiana as he pitched his economic stimulus plan. They traveled to the Department of Transportation this week and were in the Capitol Rotunda last month when he paid tribute to Abraham Lincoln in six-minute prepared remarks.
Obama’s reliance on the teleprompter is unusual — not only because he is famous for his oratory, but because no other president has used one so consistently and at so many events, large and small.
After the teleprompter malfunctioned a few times last summer and Obama delivered some less-than-soaring speeches, reports surfaced that he was training to wean himself off of the device while on vacation in Hawaii. But no such luck. (Read more.)
B.S. Report–That explains a whole lot about Obama. He’s a great speaker…but it’s all empty rhetoric. He’s nothing but an ideologue…he doesn’t speak in anything but empty platitudes.
At the end of each day, they take him back to the White House and reload his memory tapes for the next day’s nonsense. Then they just wind him up and send him on his way to do his damage. He may not be a robot planted by the Chinese or the Russians but they couldn’t have come up with a more destructive device anyway.
Obama the Robot reminds me of this famous robot from 40 years ago:
There is one major difference between Obama the Robot and Hymie the Robot (from the Get Smart show) and that’s at least Hymie was working on our behalf! Plus he was also programmed for neatness.
