There is a particular sentence here that I found particularly interesting:
First let me say that Newsbusters is right in asking: “Matthews just starting to notice” the TOTUS dependency?
The part that caught my attention, though, was Matthews’ account of Obama using a teleprompter for routine meetings.
“You go to a meeting with him I’m told, businessmen are invited to meet him at the White House, he hauls out the damn teleprompter, and he reads it to them.”
A few months ago, a high-level Democratic donor described exactly that scenario. Obama, I was told, used a teleprompter during a meeting with a small, emphasize small, group of business leaders. At the time I considered it a possible exaggeration. But if Chris Matthews is hearing about similar accounts — perhaps I need to reconsider my skepticism.
