Never de­vi­at­ing from the script

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

While fast for­ward­ing through two re­cent speeches of Pres­i­dent Obama that I had recorded, it be­came quite ap­par­ent that he never looked at his live or TV au­di­ence as his head con­stantly snapped back and forth be­tween his two teleprompters.

In re­flect­ing on the feel­ings I had dur­ing his past live “read­ings” of his teleprompters, I never de­tected eye con­tact, and never felt he was talk­ing to me. Rather, it felt like he was ad­dress­ing his teleprompters — or maybe, the “man-in-the­moon.” David Calkin Nokomis, Florida
