Marco Rubio has criticized Obama on more than one occasion for using a teleprompter. I found it quite humorous that he totally embarrassed himself the other day when as he concluded a speech he found he had forgotten the last page of the speech. It doesn't matter whether the speech is read from note cards, pages of paper or a teleprompter and to suggest otherwise is just mindless ridicule for ridicule's sake. What matters is what the content of the speech is and how it is delivered.
I cried because I had no shoes until I saw a man that had no feet.
I can't watch the politicians use teleprompters without thinking of Will Ferrell as Ron Burgundy (Anchorman) who will read whatever is on the teleprompter.
"One of the few things I know...is this: spend it all, shoot it, play it, lose it, all, right away, every time. Do not hoard what seems good for [later]; give it all, give it now.... Something more will arise for later.... Anything you do not give freely and abundantly becomes lost to you. You open your safe and find ashes."--Annie Dillard
