What will Obama do if the teleprompter goes out tonight?

Maddow was concerned about this today. Sad thing is, she was serious. Bush, Clinton and all others that I can recall were able to talk without it.

  • Bush wasn't able to talk even WITH it. And that goes for both Bushes. They have some sort of disability when it comes to public speaking.

  • LMAO...The GREAT orator falls flat on his face every time the teleprompter has problems. The highly intelligent man (that doesnt write his own speeches) cant handle a speech without it.

  • I agree with SW.

    Obama is a way better speaker than Bush was, with or without a teleprompter.

  • rolling on floorGood one swasson! Obama will be fine. If all fails I'm sure he'll tell some story about his childhood where he had to walk 50 miles in the desert with no shoes to get to school....oh yeah that's wrong his mom made him get up at 4:30 a.m. to study at home. Maybe he'll just sing.

  • But Carpy, you don't like Maddow because she is such a liberal media tool. Why would you pay any attention to anything she says? Oh wait, because it fit into your "I hate everything Obama" repetoire.

    Who cares what she says? (And I like the chick-she cracks me up!)

  • What every anchor on TV does when their prompter goes...look at the printed copy.

    No such thing as a paperless newsroom. And I used to tell anchors on a regular basis that they needed to practice without the prompter just in caase.

    Hiltler was a great speaker too (not calling Obama Hitler before you I am attacked). Many people are good speakers just have the wrong message.
