However, much has happened since it went up, including the Blogger outage. Scroll down for a report on that. More new posts will be added below this one. The essay below is the conclusion of the ninth part in a series by Takuan Seiyo.
Obama is helpless without a teleprompter If Mr. Obama is so smart, and has even a loose grasp on all the important issues of the day, why does he need to rely on a teleprompter for every word he speaks?
The next time you see Mr. Obama give a speech on television, notice that he constantly alternates his gaze between the teleprompter on the left and the teleprompter on the right. Back and forth, left and right, about three seconds on each side.
More than likely there are notations in his script about when to pause, when to inhale, and which words to emphasize. Without the teleprompter and a staff of speech writers, he would be just another community organizer i.

For eight years, we were treated to the Greatest Orator Ever! Conservatives even came up with a name for Obama's teleprompter: Teleprompter Of The United States.
There were lots of jokes about this, most in jest, some nasty. If you want incoherence, how about Obama unable to make his remarks because the teleprompter wasn't programed? Did he forget that President Barack Obama used teleprompters during his presidency and major speeches?
When Barack Obama speaks, especially without a teleprompter, you can almost see the zzzzzzs rising over the heads of his audience. You can only listen to platitudes for so long.
But then, suddenly, Obama will come out with a falsehood so other-worldly that you sit up and say, "[What] was that? Not once did he dare look at us staring back at him. At one point the pollen count seemed high, so he dabbed at his right eye as if to wipe away an imaginary tear.
Obama was always a prop, a pitchman, an actor hired to play a role written for him by old white lefties from the 's. His job was to freak out the squares. People forget that inthe chatter from the Left was that whites feared nothing more than an intelligent, articulate black man.
They believed it which is why they hired Obama in the first place. That was the point. They did not care a whit about Obama's ideas. His job was to read from the teleprompter. If we turn against each other based on division of race or religion.
If-if-if-if-if-if-if-if-if-if-if we fall for, you know, a bunch of okie-doke, just because, you know it-it-it. You know, it-it-it-it-it-it sounds funny or the tweets are provocative. You know, it-it-it-it-it-it sounds funny or the tweets are provocative, then we're not gonna build on the progress that we started.
Obama dives into fight, lambasts GOP on economy. Speaking in Flint, Mich. One obvious sign liberal journalists are already missing Obama? Celebrating him as a comedian. Washington Post gossip Emily Heil is a big fan of his comedic stylings, as the headlines proved: Obama has joke writers to make him funny.
Is it really that hard to please a roomful of liberal journalists who voted for you? Or did he have them at "Hello"? You see, Obama "tweaked" the jokes so masterfully. As noted in my previous post, the press is determined that the world not learn of profound statements made by world leaders it despises.
