Teleprompter of the United States
When the midterms are over, blood runs red in the streets, and the democrats are burying their dead, Obama will kick off a 10 day working vacation as far away as he can get from the electoral carnage. One of his stops will be in India where he'll address, and by "address" I mean "read to", the 780 member Indian parliament. And for the first time ever, a teleprompter will be used in the chamber. How embarrassing!
A teleprompter will be in use for the first time in the Central Hall of Parliament when US President Barack Obama addresses MPs on November eight…
Obama will take the help of a teleprompter to deliver his address to the 780-odd members of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha, sources said…
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.
Teleprompters are textbook-sized panes of glass holding the prepared remarks of the speaker and which rests on top of a tall, narrow pole and flank his podium during speeches.
The Indian newspapers are having to explain what a teleprompter is because they've never seen a politician pretend to be speaking when he's actually reading. India is the largest democracy in the world and Obama doesn't even have respect enough to memorize a simple speech? If the Indian people weren't disillusioned before, they sure will be when they realize The One is a phony douche, and not the charismatic superman he likes to think he is.
Just like in the Wizard of Oz, the man behind the curtain will be revealed, or the teleprompter behind the President as it were, and Obama will be shown to be the shallow but telegenic, empty suit we here in America have known he was all along.
