Obama – Lost Once Again Without His Trusty Tele-prompters…

Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman said during a hastily called news conference that Obama is no friend to Las Vegas and would not be welcomed here if he visits.

“I’ll do everything I can to give him the boot,” Goodman said. “This president is a real slow learner.”

Goodman as well as a host of Republican and Democratic officials have called on Obama either to button it up when he is not joined at the hip with a tele-prompter or officially apologize for his second comment that Las Vegas is not the place to visit when times are tough.

Whether or not you believe Las Vegas is where  you want to spend your family vacation, it doesn’t take much brain power to see that Obama has little control of what he says if he is not reading it from pre-arranged script on the tele-prompter.

Obama’s soaring oratorical dynamics do set him aside somewhat from newscasters who read most of their material from teleprompters but who also are prone to verbal gaffs when they don’t have everything pre-printed and vetted before it reaches the air waves.  The next time you see a medium or large corporation executive addressing his company or investors with a tele-prompter, let me know – we will add that fact here.

A president who cannot compose original thoughts without a tele-prompter or control his tongue when speaking off the cuff is a dangerous and loose cannon on any stage or topic – domestic or international.   In turbulent times such as these where listeners hang on every word from their leaders, we deserve much better.  

What do you think?
