Obama cant do anything without a teleprompter. How stupid can this guy be. He thanks himself for inviting everyone, says he is of Irish ancestry. Then this about sums it up ..."Cowen stopped and looked back at the president to say, "That's your speech." Obama is such a douche!

Yeah but when bush made a faux pa it was national headline news. And everyone made fun of him for it. When Obama does it, the drive by media covers it up

When a teleprompter has to direct you on how to feel and act BO is right it's above his pay scale. How do you like that BO's was right all along.

Tu Quoque fallacy:

Tu Quoque is a very common fallacy in which one attempts to defend oneself or another from criticism by turning the critique back against the accuser. This is a classic Red Herring since whether the accuser is guilty of the same, or a similar, wrong is irrelevant to the truth of the original charge.

Apparently he didn't "always" use that teleprompter if he made all those gaffes you cite....or do you argue that he couldn't read as well? He has bad eyesight, maybe? Or, "it was part of the joke", or "you weren't being sarcastic", right?

I'm sure you'll think of an excuse.

You should try one Bush insult at a time lest you expose your "cut and paste" mentality.

There's your argumentum ad personam back at you from a previous thread!

Forgive me, I meant to get back to you earlier on that.

How did you like it?

Makes you want to go another round, doesn't it?

That would be the problem with argumentum ad personam, wouldn't it?

Take away the tu quoque and there's apparently nothing left. Tu quoque (not tu 'quogue'), translates from Latin as "You, also" or "And you, too". It is an argument accusing an accuser of a similar offense or similar behavior, but is a false line of reasoning. In this instance, whether or not Bush made gaffes/mistakes has no bearing at all on Obama's tendency to make gaffes/mistakes, which was the topic at hand, and remains the topic at hand no matter how many of Bush's past gaffes are put forward.

The Telepromter was not invited to babysit the Dear Leader on Leno, this is what you get. I have a close friend with a Down Syndrome child, sweetest girl in the World, but I'm not PC enough to get mad at this slip up, but ......
Please stop a moment and ask yourself, what if this was BUSH.

The first appearance by a sitting president on “The Tonight Show” may well end up being the last.

President Obama, in his taping with Jay Leno Thursday afternoon, attempted to yuk it up with the funnyman, and ended up insulting the disabled.

Towards the end of his approximately 40-minute appearance, the president talked about how he’s gotten better at bowling and has been practicing in the White House bowling alley.

He bowled a 129, the president said.

“That’s very good, Mr. President,” Leno said sarcastically.

It’s “like the Special Olympics or something,” the president said.

When asked about the remark, the White House said the president did not intend to offend.

“The president made an off-hand remark making fun of his own bowling that was in no way intended to disparage the Special Olympics,” White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton said
