Finally, our President's absolute reliance on the teleprompter is getting coverage. Of course, Presidents of recent vintage have all used the teleprompter...but almost exclusively for major addresses. Our Orator-in-Chief uses them for virtually every televised speech he gives. Of course he's a gifted speaker--doesn't hurt when he's reading the words from a screen! We've all seen how much less impressive he is on his feet (the debates did quite a bit to humanize him), with all the "ums" and "uhs".
Let's face it...Barack Obama is an uncommonly smart guy, and he's a great politician. But he's scripted, he's stiff and even his "personality" is written into the speeches.
The more we see of him, the more human he becomes. And it is not confidence inspiring.
