The teleprompter is Obama's best friend without it the great orator would be an empty suit.
Each time he is forced to speak without it, he invariably puts his foot in his mouth. The man is a total fraud and the world is becoming more and more aware of his many short-comings. I use to think he was a great snake-oil salesman, but he is not even that. He is simply a actor reading from a script---a great actor with no substance. He is just playing a part, the question is who is writing the play. I've noticed that when he is asked questions and does not have "totus" to rely on he fumbles through his answers and often has to go back later and make corrections on what he said earlier. He is definitely slow on his feet. If he ever has to make a decision quickly we are all in trouble. We have been fed a big lie and we believed it. I reminded of a quote: "A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on."Winston Churchhill.
