last night in the state of the obama address it looked like he was watching a damn tennis match. he only looked at the camera/his audience once, right at the end, and even then it was for maybe 2 seconds.

but yeah, bush was the dumb one.

If it helps him pronounce our language correctly and not invent words on the spot, I'm all for it.

A large majority of Americans who watched President Obama's State of the Union Address generally approve of the proposals he outlined in his speech, according to a CBS News Poll conducted online by Knowledge Networks immediately after the President's address.

Of the randomly selected 522 speech viewers questioned by CBS, 83 percent said they approved of the proposals the President made. Just 17 percent disapproved — typical of the high support a president generally receives among those who choose to watch the State of the Union. In January 2002 — when George W. Bush gave the State of the Union Address a year into his presidency — 85% of speech watchers approved.

Six in 10 of those asked said they thought Mr. Obama conveyed a clear plan for creating jobs, and seven in 10 said his plans for the economy will help ordinary Americans. Another seven in 10 said President Obama has the same priorities for the country as they have. ... 9049.shtml

Teleprompter Abuse? Who gives a fuck, And Richard Nixon used to walk with wing tips and black socks on the beach. At least the Right Wing Gestapo is consistent. Pissy and bitchy about everything. Jesus Christ, go get laid or crank one off in the sink or something.

Seems like he does OK without a teleprompter. Too bad it's probably the last we'll see of this sort of thing after the drubbing the Repubs took.
