Media Discovers Obama is Sucky Speaker Sans TelePrompTer

uhhhhhWell, looks like some in the media are catching on to what PUMA knew all along: Obama is an oratorical hack when speaking extemporaneously. His supposed greatest skill — his ability to inpsire with words — is merely regurgitation of insipid speeches written by immature douchebags and read by teleprompter:

Obama’s reliance on the teleprompter is unusual — not only because he is famous for his oratory, but because no other president has used one so consistently and at so many events, large and small…

After the teleprompter malfunctioned a few times last summer…Obama delivered some less-than-soaring speeches…

His use of the teleprompter makes work tricky for the television crews and photographers trying to capture an image of the president …without a pane of glass blocking his face…

The president’s teleprompter also elicited some uncomfortable laughter after he announced Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius as his choice for Health and Human Services secretary. “Kathy,” Obama said, turning the podium over to Sebelius, who waited at the microphone for an awkward few seconds while the teleprompters were lowered to the floor and the television cameras rolled.

Obama has relied on a teleprompter through even the shortest announcements and when repeating the same lines on his economic stimulus plan that he’s been saying for months…

In a break from his routine, Obama did not use a teleprompter during his pre-Inauguration speech at a factory in Bedford Heights, Ohio — and his delivery seemed to suffer. He paused too long at parts. He accentuated the wrong words. And overall he sounded hesitant and halting as he spoke from the prepared remarks on the podium…

“He uses them to death,” a television crewmember who also covered the White House under Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush said of the teleprompter…”

Obama wouldn’t be famous for his oratory if biased media outlets like Politico had pointed out that he can’t speak without his beloved teleprompter from the very beginning. Instead, they force fed the public the ‘Obama is such a great speaker’ lie.

Obama is a manufacted pop celebrity, and the incompetence of his administration is made more clear each day. The media might be shocked, but the rest of us knew this from long ago.
