Pictures of Presidents With Teleprompters

I just heard Jon Huntsman on CNN making some Obama/teleprompter comment. The whole teleprompter jab has been dumb from the beginning.

Every. President. Uses. Teleprompters.

Every. One.

And even those who aren't president, but make fun of the president who uses teleprompters, use teleprompters.

If I were a public speaker, I'd want a teleprompter. I bet you would too.

The next person who uses the teleprompter meme should be banned from using a teleprompter. Forever.


  1. Perhaps Obama should point out, "yeah, we all use teleprompters - but people like Bush, Reagan, Bachmann, and Palin still make massive verbal gaffs even when they've got the script right there front of them. Sounds like only a real dummy could screw up like that" :)

  2. Rant In A-Minor -
    How about these Obuma gaffs? There are many more. You don't have to look very hard.

    "What I was suggesting -- you're absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith..." --in an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, who jumped in to correct Obama by saying "your Christian faith," which Obama quickly clarified

    "I'm here with the Girardo family here in St. Louis." --speaking via satellite to the Democratic National Convention, while in Kansas City, Missouri, Aug. 25, 2008

    "Let me introduce to you the next President -- the next Vice President of the United States of America, Joe Biden." --slipping up while introducing Joe Biden at their first joint campaign rally, Springfield, Illinois, Aug. 23, 2008

    "Just this past week, we passed out of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee -- which is my committee -- a bill to call for divestment from Iran as way of ratcheting up the pressure to ensure that they don't obtain a nuclear weapon." --referring to a committee he is not on, Sderot, Israel, July 23, 2008

    "Let me be absolutely clear. Israel is a strong friend of Israel's. It will be a strong friend of Israel's under a McCain...administration. It will be a strong friend of Israel's under an Obama administration. So that policy is not going to change." --Amman, Jordan, July 22, 2008

    "How's it going, Sunshine?" --campaigning in Sunrise, Florida

    "On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes -- and I see many of them in the audience here today -- our sense of patriotism is particularly strong."

    "Hold on one second, sweetie, we're going to do -- we'll do a press avail." --to a female reporter for ABC's Detroit affiliate who asked about his plan to help American autoworkers (

    "I've now been in 57 states -- I think one left to go." --at a campaign event in Beaverton, Oregon

  3. Difference is you have to scour a ton of video to find like 30 seconds of Obama gaffes. I have more gaffes. Bush you have to scour to find 30 seconds of stuff that makes any sense. You could have a 24 hour tv network of Bush's gaffes.

  4. There has never been a public speaker, no matter how gifted, who hasn't said the opposite of what they meant to say or forgot what they were saying or lost there place in their speech regardless of whether or not they were using notes or teleprompters. Some of the greates and most famous speaches were read by the orators. Regarless of who it is it is still fun to laugh at their mistakes as long as we don't make more of them than we should.

  5. No, not all Presidents use TelePrompTers. Time was, they spoke from memory or extemporaneously. (Look it up.) The difference is, 0bama is a tongue-tied fool without it, and that comes from fundamental dishonesty about himself and his aims; TelePrompTer or not, every utterance that he issues forth is a lie.

  6. yeah but the current president is black and everything about him is illegitimate, right?
