President Obama in Iraq - April 2009

When you can't bring your teleprompter, the old-school note card will have to do.

Of course, if you knew the names of the major war-zone military units you commanded, you wouldn't need it.

  • I lived through the Carter military years and this excuse for a president is heading down the same idiotic path carter went down,even worse.
    We can drive green cars & fund billions on global warming B.S. but we wont be able to stop an invasion south of our border.

  • Where have all the "W" stickers gone? I have yet to see anyone with an "O" on their windshield, announcing their adulation of an elected leader, yet the those who worshipped at the altar of the shrub find great glee of accusing others of commmiting the accusers' folly, apparently incapable of seeing the hilarious irony. Simply because people voted against 8 more years of GOP presidency does not translate into having found your messiah in the alternative. some of us do not hav More..

  • I think whats more telling is his warm reception. I seem to recall some videos a couple of months ago that implied the troops wouldn't cheer for a Democrat.

  • "those are ad-hoc units and the names are easily messed up." - by the average American, maybe. By the Commander in Chief of units at war, no.

    "would there have been a chance that you WOULDN'T make negative comments about his visit, regardless?"

    As a matter of fact, yes:

  • better to read the name off the cards than butcher them or leave out someone.
    would there have been a chance that you WOULDN'T make negative comments about his visit, regardless?

    • My guess is he's showing you what your side sounded like about Bush for eight years.


      Having said that, I don't blame him for using a card, those are ad-hoc units and the names are easily messed up.

    • No, the answer is that's just what YOU and yours sounded like. I simply don't want to sound like you did, but he has the right to, and you're in no position to whine about it.

    • stan, you make lee atwater look like a well-mannered dilettante. indeed, the answer was a resounding no. you can use whatever excuse you like, but the answer remains, "No."
      you can berate me for pointing it out, but these incessant puerile posts are ridiculous. one has only to look at the insipid avatars to infer there is little more motive behind such snipes than individuals who take "sides" with the ardor of miscreant sports fanatics, incensed that somehow their side lost More..

    for every straw you grasp on Obama there's a whole treasure trove on Bush. you think Bush didn't use teleprompters or have speech professionals telling him how to speak? didn't have writers that wrote his speeches?

    go protect one of Bush's "Power Pants", or something

    • You sound like the fools at Young Turds. Of course all presidents have speech writers and have used teleprompters. The difference is Obama uses the 'prompter far more often than prior presidents. Perhaps what explains that is how bad he can sound without it.

      BTW, as someone who NEVER failed to nitpick Bush, much less spout endless numbers of laughable conspiracy theories about him, are you sure you're entitled to bitch now?

      Oh, and based on that latest narcissistic avatra, you could stand More..

  • If you are harping on the President's use of a teleprompter you have surely hit bottom--or watch too much Glennbeck. Time to get some help.

    • You would have thought they would realize they have run this teleprompter non-story to the end of its string, but cons are famous for beating a dead horse to a pulp.

    • Hey jamms,friendly bet. If at this time next year we aren't in full depression mode or probably worse then you get $50 from me. If the messiah hasn't worked a miracle by then and you still have a job then you owe me a 1/2 ounce gold coin since your paper will be worthless. Remind me a year from now I will be true to my word if he walks on water.
