The teleprompter president

This was very funny.

Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen was just a few paragraphs into an address in Washington when he realised it all sounded a bit too familiar.
It was. He was repeating the speech President Barack Obama had just read from the same teleprompter.
Mr Cowen stopped, turned to the president and said: "That's your speech."
A laughing Mr Obama returned to the podium to take over but it seems the script had finally been switched and the US president ended up thanking himself for inviting everyone to the party.
Mr Obama is an accomplished orator but is becoming known in America as the "teleprompt president" over his reliance on the machine when he gives a speech. . . . .

I suppose it is technically correct to describe someone who reads a speech well as an "accomplished orator." However, since he does not write his speeches nor can he put 6 words together without a teleprompter, to me he is nothing more than a rookie actor who is only as good as his cue card boy is efficient.

For 6 years, the left belligerently prattled on with rumors that President Bush wore an earpiece, and how it proved he was a puppet and/or stupid.

Is this the change they were hoping for?
