There are some things I just can’t help snickering about…but he makes it soooooooo easy.
Fox News says – Prompter-in-Chief…’What kind of politician brings a teleprompter to a news conference? A careful one’…’One of the few times he summoned raw emotion came after a reporter demanded to know why it took him so long to express outrage over the AIG executive bonuses. “It took a couple of days because I like to know what I’m talking about before I speak.” Even better, he likes to have it up on the teleprompter.
From Breitbart.tv – Obama Upgrade: Teleprompters Swapped for Giant TV Monitor for News Conference…'”He read that opening statement from one massive TV monitor from the back and middle of the East Room. White House officials removed the normal glass teleprompters that usually are positioned on both sides of the podium. That change likely a reaction to the focus on the President’s heavy use of teleprompters.”
And of course, only a certain few are allowed to ask questions…
From POLITICO –Obama skips major paper: ‘Here’s the list of reporters in order: Jennifer Loven (AP), Chuck Todd (NBC), Jake Tapper (ABC), Chip Reid (CBS), Lourdes Meluza (Univision), Kevin Baron (Stars and Stripes), Ed Henry (CNN), Major Garrett (Fox News), Mike Allen (POLITICO), Kevin Chappell (Ebony), Ann Compton (ABC Radio), Jon Ward (Washington Times) and Stephen Collinson (AFP).
So the only newspapers that got a question were the Washington Times, Stars and Stripes, and POLITICO — although the latter is known by many, especially outside DC, as primarily a website. Similar to the first time around, Obama provided lengthy answers and took follow-ups, which is why just thirteen reporters got a chance in about an hour at the podium.
We’ve had this conversation before. Obama is quick to answer questions from a chosen few because of his lack of knowledge and inability to speak off-the-cuff. He’s my favorite Crash-Test Dummy.
To be serious, this man has already signed away our money, our children, our elderly and our future. He is for the HERE AND NOW. Obama cannot fathom the future nor is he capable of preparing for it, either for himself or the United States.
Obama is making the United States incredibly vulnerable to terror attack on our soil because everyone can see the weaknesses he has created. The teleprompter thing is funny but the issues are far from funny.
I hope Obama gets saved…he’d make a great Christian. But now he’s just a lousy President.
