Real Clear Politics: ‘Video: Obama Uses Teleprompters During Speech to 6th Graders’
Until I find the video to embed, you’ll have to head on over to the page at RealClearPolitics, using the link above. Seriously, though — watch it. I couldn’t even believe it was real; it looked like something The Onion would put together.
Quite honestly, this may be the most embarrassing thing I’ve ever seen. Liberals make fun of George W. Bush for stammering and stuttering on occasion, but at least the man was honest, and at least the man knew himself and his principles well enough to bear his heart to and ad-lib for a room full of schoolchildren. And liberals make fun of Sarah Palin for being unintelligent, but I’d be willing to bet that she’d be able to deliver a speech on education without the use of TelePrompTers.
It’s message massage, is what it is. This White House is so devoid of experience and common sense that every single word must be considered, managed and delivered in proper fashion. That’s why we don’t see Joe Biden out there anymore, because when Joe’s on he speaking circuit, this sort of thing happens:
Hey, I felt bad not being able to embed that Obama video here. So, instead, I dug up my single favorite moment from the 2008 presidential election, when then Sen. Biden told a wheelchair-bound state lawmaker to stand up. It’s been well over a year now, and this thing still makes me laugh.
