Obama Being Weaned From Teleprompter

From the great “Prowler” at The American Spectator:

Teleprompting Obama

By The Prowler
Published 8/21/2008

According to several Democrat political consultants presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Barack Obama spent part of his Hawaiian vacation working on weaning himself from a heavy dependence on teleprompters. Even in what are staged as “town hall” events for Obama, remarks are scripted or formatted into bullet points that scroll on teleprompter screens. Obama has had several embarrassing events where the teleprompter either malfunctioned or the screens were not fully visible.

He just locks down and can’t get the words out,” says one political consultant. “For such a fine speaker, it’s really quite remarkable that he’s had issues.”

Obama’s troubles with unscripted moments contributed to his campaign’s refusal to participate in town hall format debates or discussions with Sen. John McCain, who feels much more comfortable in the unscripted moments

This explains a lot.

Though, if the Anointed One is so brilliant at debates, why is he only allowing three of them? During the Democrat primaries they had three a week.

It’s almost as if Mr. Obama is afraid of anyone finding out what he really thinks.

    Most of the time you can tell he doesn’t write the stuff either. Jon Favreau writes everything doesn’t he ?
    Obama is lost when he has to actually say something from his own mind,and not written for him.

    It’s weird..

    I give Bush credit..he had his words mixed up at times,but he could hold a conversation without constantly
    looking at a prompter. he could be quite entertaining.
    And have you ever seen a press conference with the Pres looking at a prompter when it was advertised as questions
    from the audience and he stands and reads the script off the prompter ? It’s like it was prearranged.

    So far he has turned out exactly like I thought.
    One term and out.
