Sometimes The Truth Is Worse Than Farce

We had some fun at the expense of the President this week in regard to his use of teleprompters in a 6th grade classroom, though that technically was a statement to reporters. All joking aside, we now see this:

Seriously?! Hot Air supplies the context:
This isn’t a press conference, a speech, or even a White House briefing. It’s a committee meeting. As Rich said, people used to poke fun at Reagan’s notecards. Either he needs this much help to get through opening remarks in a normal business meeting, or he’s become a little to attached to the TOTUS … and neither option makes him look very professional.
What does it say that the most powerful man in the world (theoretically, at least) can’t even make it through a lowly committee meeting without reading off of a pre-determined script? I mean, doesn’t every 9th grader in the country have to stand up and give some sort of speech in English class every year? If they can do it without teleprompters, why can’t this supposed intellectual giant who graduated from Hah-vud?

It’s no wonder that the world is collectively laughing at America right now.

There’s my two cents.

PS – It also underscores how poor a candidate John McCain was that he couldn’t soundly defeat Obama in the pre-election debates. Sheesh.

I'm a gun-owning, Bible-thumping, bitter clinger conservative in the heartland. You can disagree with me if you want (you do, after all, have a right to be wrong)...just don't be rude or stupid and we'll get along just fine! :)
