Obama's safety net: the TelePrompter - Carol E. Lee -

"President Barack Obama doesn’t go anywhere without his TelePrompter.

The textbook-sized panes of glass holding the president’s prepared remarks follow him wherever he speaks.

Resting on top of a tall, narrow pole, they flank his podium during speeches in the White House’s stately parlors. They stood next to him on the floor of a manufacturing plant in Indiana as he pitched his economic stimulus plan. They traveled to the Department of Transportation this week and were in the Capitol Rotunda last month when he paid tribute to Abraham Lincoln in six-minute prepared remarks."

I know, uh, that the former, uh, president, uh, had a reputation for, uh, being stupid, but, uh, I think he often spoke, uh, extemporaneously, a concept, uh, which appears to have, uh, led to, uh, problems with the, uh, current, uh, office holder. At least he can, uh, properly, you know, pronounce the word, uh, "nuclear", uh, at least when it is written, uh, on the glass thing.
