The trouble with using teleprompters all the time

This mix up with the teleprompter is slightly embarrassing for the president.

The President completely locks-up when one of these technical failures occurs. The marvel is how the media keeps presenting the President as a smart and unscripted thinker. If he can't speak 'unscripted,' he probably can't think that way well either.

Excellent point Matthew. When the puppets strings are cut, what happens next?

Years ago, I was placed in front of thousands of folks, in a very important meeting, shall we say. I froze up. I was 15 years old, and I like to think that perhaps I had an excuse.

If this were to occur today, after some decades, I do not think that I would need a teleprompter to bail me out.

I wish and hope for another chance to express myself verbally to said assemblage now, as I know darn well how to express myself without any help.

Geez, I am not even in charge of anything, and I know I can pull it off!
