My goodness, even TOTUS is being threatened by layoffs these days. But on the bright side, we don’t see many stories about Obama being concerned with reducingdependency, but this is one of them, so soak it up.
From The Hill:
President Obama is weaning himself off his teleprompter.
At recent campaign events in Pennsylvania, Virginia and again Monday in Ohio, Obama spoke to crowds in high school gymnasiums and at crowded outdoor events without his teleprompter, instead using written notes.
The difference is dramatic. Instead of turning in his characteristic manner from right to left and back again, reading from the two sloping, clear-plastic planes of his teleprompter, Obama has glanced down at pages in a binder on his podium.
