You make some very interesting points. I agree that many presidents use the teleprompter and they have to at times. However, no other president has used one so consistently and at so many events, large and small as Obama. He is totally dependent on that darn machine and it's to a point were it has become his crutch,lol.

Question, when was the last time in his entire presidency that you have seen him not use it (teleprompter) and just speak from his mind? and when you take away his teleprompter he seems lost and incoherent at times. He can't even explain the intricacies of this disastrous health care bill he's trying force through, when a majority of Americans don't want it. But that's not even a telepromoter issue it's moreso a issue of him not knowing what's in the bill because he probably didn't read it.

I just think Obama seems like a smart person but lacks common sense on so many issues even Jon Steward agrees when it comes to using a teleprompter in a sixth grade classroom

Just being facetious, a lil political humor for your enjoyment

"Facetious" is an adjective, it means being deliberately flippant about a serious subject. You're taking a silly subject, treating it like it's a big deal, and then making jokes about it (or, more accurately, posting OTHER people's jokes). I don't even really know what to call that. Stupid?

I'd also like to point out that a lot of people find it crazy that Obama doesn't know every. single. detail. of the health care bill, when they aren't even HIS bills to begin with. He left it to Congress for a reason—'cause, y'know, they legislate. Have you not read the Constitution, or are you just being facetious?

Also, note the plural: health care bills. I'd like to know to which singular bill you seem to be referring in your post. Seeing as Congress only recently combined ALL the House bills and ALL the Senate bills into TWO bills that need to be reconciled, I'm not surprised that Obama isn't entirely sure of the tiny specifics of "his" plan. I'd like to know to which singular bill you are referring. Sheesh.

Also: what RCW said.
