    So teleprompters are not ok, after all she criticized Obama for using them, but it is all right to have crib notes written on your hand. More hypocrisy? Maybe, but more likely just not thinking again. :laugh:

    Even Teddy Roosevelt used hand notes. What's your point, here ? Can't argue with the substance of what she saod ? Did it go over your head ?

    Obama can't even talk to grade schoolers without his every word spelled out for him. Hardly an apt comparison.

    That's the difference. We argue policy with Obama, and the left uses notes, and husbands on Palin.

    Liberals have great trouble making legitimate comparisons.

    So you're saying there is no difference between writing your talking points down and having your entire speech written out for you so that you just read (in the President's case, reading it well) your entire speech.

    I don't think it is Gov. Palin who is not thinking.

    I see nothing wrong with using a teleprompter. I see nothing wrong with using crib notes.

    I do see wrong in making fun of one person using a prompt and then, in turn, using a prompt. It makes her look silly and sophomoric.

    As far as substance, she was simply a politician saying what her followers wanted to hear. There really was no substance. There almost never is any substance when a politician speaks to a convention.

    She probably knew what questions were coming and the crib notes were there so she would not forget what to emphasis. As of this morning the the "Minute Men" have not responded to questions about her being told ahead of time, as many politicians are, what questions would be asked.

    I find it highly amusing to see the hoops her 'worshipers' jump through for her.

    Here are some other quotes on what others are saying:


    This is just a few, there are a lot more if you care to look. :laugh:

    All speakers should use notes of some sort. That is why I don't criticize Obama for his use of the teleprompter or Palin for her use of crib notes.

    Having said that, Obama's total dependence upon teleprompters is a bit odd.

    I love these threads from CTB. The pattern is all the same.

    CTB: posts something he knows will raise hackles

    Poster#1: You're a liberal
    Poster #2: See he's a liberal
    Poster #3: I hate liberals
    CTB: Random vacuous question attempting to realign the conversation with the OP
    Poster #1: Your question is a liberal
    Poster #3: I hate questions from liberals
    Poster #4: Attempts to get thread back on track
    CTB: Thanks#4 for the reply
    Poster #1: You're a liberal, why do you hate babies?

    I have suggestions for future threads:


    1. Palin doesn't use handrail while climbing stairs.
    2. Palin doesn't use handrail while descending stairs.
    3. Palin sold used textbooks at University of Idaho.
    4. Palin used college money for makeup and beverages.
    5. Palin husband uses snowmachine instead of dogs.
    6. Palin unaware of husband's carbon footprint.
    You don't need to wait for any credible reports. Oh, here's another one. I don't have any substantive facts but i heard somewhere that Sarah Palin won't use Sharpie's markers because she is bothered by the smell. So here's a suggested thread title:

    7. Palin opposed to jobs in Shelbyville, TN!

    No one's claiming anything about that. You're not making legitimate comparisons. What you're doing is setting up a strawman.

    Kinda makes one think of the dialogue of satan with God re: Job.

    When one accusation was (is) proven ridiculous, he made (makes) up a new one that tried (tries) to ignore the first slap-down.:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    PDS at its finest!!:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    (Maybe he figured that BDS no longer was a viable attribute????)

    As if saying that she is hypocritical or not using her brain because she uses literally hand written notes instead of a teleprompter is not a straw man argument. I am not fan of the Governor. I think she's a light weight, but she is a sumo wrestler compared to the original thought in this thread.

    Actually, yes... except to his 5th grade audience. :laugh:

    I use notes to preach from, so I understand the President would use notes also.

    I just think you're the typical leftist who wants to knock any conservative down and you grabbed this silliness.

    A man who needs a teleprompter to talk to grade school kids has either an ego problem or ...

    ... wait a minute- yup, that's it in a nutshell.

    Obama is not an eloquent speaker. He can deliver well, but he is an average speaker. He is also a liar. The teleprompter criticisms are a response to the grossly inflated opinions published concerning his oratory skills.

    Can't slip one past you now can we? In the grand scheme of things what does it matter if Palin uses notes? Does it really matter? Did she really criticize President Obama for using a teleprompter? I don't personally recall hearing or reading where she did. Any citations to support this?

    This run on Palin threads reminds me of when I used to take my Mama to the hair dresser. You would have thought the world was coming to an end with the passionate claims from the Q-tips, "Did you see that blouse Louise wore to church? I swear I saw her wearing it at bridge club just two weeks ago. Oh, my!"

    Yes, she did mock Obama.

    And now we are told she was using a teleprompter also. :laugh: So not only did she need a teleprompter but hand crib notes also. Now that would also be all right, but not after mocking the president.

    Tell me the last time a politician giving a speech at a convention did not use a teleprompter?





    No, it does not matter if Obama uses a teleprompter or if Palin uses crib nots on her hand.

    But it is hypocritical to mock someone for using a prompt and then using a prompt herself.

    By the way, I will show her as much slack as some on the board show Obama? OK?
