Which is more professional.. Someone using a teleprompter like MANY presidents and politicians have done


Or



Someone in their 40s writing notes on their hand like a cheating 3rd grader?


Pick one.

Is there a point to this thread? You would wonder if it might be acceptable to have an elected politician speak his/her mind when talking with the electorate instead of reading what someone else prepared.

I suppose I would say the hand is better since it might indicate the politician involved actually wrote it rather than had it downloaded from whomever is actually running the country.

If though the question is which style leads one to become a more professional actor/actress then clearly the teleprompter.

Or


The super-secret electronic thingamajig so you can be spoon-fed answers from off-stage?




Personally my choice is "write your answers on your hand like a cheating 3rd grader", but only after you complain about someone else using a teleprompter during a speech.

I prefer someone to use a teleprompter as has been done for many years now by people giving speeches.


Hand notes can be so revealing!

When I give a long talk to my classes I always make notes for myself. These are generally handwritten, but I might use a teleprompter if I had one available. There is no way I, or anybody I know, can remember off the top of our heads everything we want to say for an hour.

ALL presidents use a teleprompter or written notes for just that reason, and ALL presidents use feedback and suggestions on what and how to say what they want to say. They consult others before they make their speeches. That's called thinking before you speak.

It is just ridiculous how far people will go to find fault with President Obama for doing every little thing that presidents always do and always have done.

Jeez. You'd think President Bush never made trips, never took time off, never consulted others, or never thought before he spoke. Well, maybe there's good evidence that he didn't do the last thing.

So this whole thread is a not so cleaver way to bash Palin... Haven't the Liberals got what they wanted yet?
I think at this point most people would take Palin over Obama any day. Obama couldn't suck anymore at this point...

There is a good cartoon in this statement. George Washington standing in front of a teleprompter - or any of the first 27 presidents for that matter.

Teleprompter...last I checked, we were in the 21st century... If it's an option, use it.

For those who've never given a proper, long speech, I'd suggest trying it before you knock it. Not so easy. Heck, most of my toastmaster speeches were around 10-15 min, and even that isn't easy. Imagine doing so for an hour?
