His Menace': Chris Matthews Tells Obama to 'Get Rid of That Damn Teleprompter


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.
