The Teleprompter, the Jacket and the Laugh: A Presidency In Utter Ruin

Posted: Updated:

The writing should have been on the wall...and the teleprompter.

You know how the con works. The candidate ad-libs debate answers, dons a jacket and keeps laughter to a minimum. Then he gets elected president and BAM, he's revealed for what he is...a teleprompter reading, jacketless, laugher..guy. And therefore someone we cannot trust. Or at least so says the Republican attack machine. This new president who promised us change, reads from a teleprompter. A fancy dan teleprompter nearly invisible to the TV viewers' eyes. Thank God for mssrs Limbaugh and Hannity pointing it out for us...over and over. Do you call that change? Is it that much of a leap to believe he had to write much of what he read? What an insult to the nation. Reading what is wrote. Does my car mechanic read his repair instructions off a teleprompter? No. He left the plug off my oil pan, seizing up my engine all on his very own. If we have a president who can't memorize his speeches how can we expect him to right the economy?
