Is that real or photoshopped? If this is an actual site an not a parody site, this is absolutely amazing. I've never seen anything like that. Does this guy read his teleprompter to tell his kids goodnight or to ask his wife to pass the salt at the dinner table?

The captions for those photos make it out that Obama isn't speaking to those kids, he's using the classroom as a rhetorical device.

Looks like the SS finally got the message after the state dinner crashers cause the guy in the back is ready to pounce on anyone that tries to roll Obama for his milk money.

I'm not convinced that's not a photoshop. How humiliating if it's not. At least it's humiliating for me to see.

My inclination is that it's a PS as well. The cord running along the floor and back to the wall runs toward the wall socket, but there's nothing plugged into that wall socket. It just seems to disappear.

I'm not trying to spin or defend here, I'm just blown away if this was real.

Actually, that collection explains it better. It appears that when he's reading from the prompter, he was delivering a televised address with the schoolroom as the backdrop. It does not appear that he was "talking to 3rd graders" with the teleprompter. You can clearly see there that he was having an informal talk with them minus the teleprompter. Anyway, it's still a little weird.

It was a speech on Education funding. CSPAN televises it, and the White House does these things called videos where the American people can load them on the internet. You know, 8th grade basketball teams have a camera guy (a volunteer dad). Why the fuck wouldn't the president of the United States when he's giving a major speech about education funding?

http://www.whitehouse.gov/photos-and-video/video/race-top-education-reform

It was a planned, prepared speech. It just took place in a classroom, and before or after, the president had some cute photo-op with kids to show the voters that he likes kids and is "one of us".

Seems to be much more than above the average for any previous president in their first year in office.

Public speaking is what he is good at so he is sticking with it, now the actual words that come out his mouth is what is currently causing problems for him :)

I wonder how phoney you feel when you are reading off of a teleprompter while you're commandeering a classroom for a television spot? There's probably more television, sound guys, and message advisors in that class room than there are kids.

I don't usually blink at stuff like this, but this guy just seems more and more phoney every day.

There must be a lot of people with Reaper16 on ignore. Once you recognize that his nearly unbearable ego is really just a mask for the wide range of deficiencies he sees in himself, he's not so bad. Give him another try.

I'd bet that they cleared the kids out completely for the speech.

It's not really the fact that he is using one for televised remarks from a third grade class, it's just sad that you don't see him doing ANYTHING without a teleprompter. Have we ever heard him say something that Axelrod and Emmanuel haven't scripted? How do you know?

What I find interesting is that in the room with the teleprompters there are no obvious signs of life other than Obot himself and his aid, or whatever the guy is.

It makes you wonder what was said to those kids and whether it was appropriate for them to hear.

Where can we get the text of his speech to the kids?

It could be a patch cable for the (sound) monitors at his feet. Why he would need mics and a sound monitor for a 10X20 class room is astounding. It would be different if it were the "Gym-a-caf-a-torium"

The teleprompter is on at this very moment. Why don't they just have a Lite channel that is 24/7 about him. That way those of us who want to avoid that crap can block it with our Vchip.
