Via thepoliticalfreakshow: Lots of conservatives have mocked Obama for using Teleprompters, but Romney hasn’t. As he told Fox News’ Sean Hannity, “it does make some sense though, I understand, it makes some sense.” He got the prompters adjusted this afternoon:

The “Reader-in-Chief” – Obama’s Teleprompter: The GOP’s Dumbest Attack: ”It’s a strange obsession because it’s inane. Teleprompters are tools. Sure they’re high tech if you’ve just emerged from the 1950s (which might explain the GOP’s fascination with them), but ultimately they’re just a medium for prepared remarks, substantively no different from a sheet of paper on a lectern. A teleprompter can’t magically imbue a poor speech with additional spellbinding qualities. Criticizing someone for using a teleprompter is like berating him for using a microphone, or arguing that there’s something wrong with writing on a word processor rather than with a quill and ink…”
However, when someone who’s held up as The Savior to the Teapeoples has to write the high points of her speech on her hand… that’s a whole different level of WTF. Especially when said Savior loves to talk about the president’s teleprompter usage.
