First Dukakis, Now Walter Mondale Give Obama Advice: “Stop Relying on “Idiot Boards” … Teleprompters, to Talk to the American People


Mondale has a message to Obama, the Teleprompter in Chief” or is it the “Idiot Board in Chief”?

As we speculated after Michael Dukakis stopped by the White House to give advice to President Obama, it was only a matter of time before Walter Mondale, another successful failed Democrat Presidentalcandidate showed up to provide his two cents.

Walter Mondale,  the former VP under Carter and failed Democrat Presidential candidate who lost in a landslide to Ronald Reagan, stated in an interview with CNN that President Barack Hussein Obama should stop relying on “idiot boards,”  i.e. teleprompters, to deliver his message to the American people.


Walter Mondale has some advice for President Obama if he wants to win a second term: drop the teleprompter.

He uses these idiot boards to read speeches in television, and I think he loses the connection that he needs emotionally with American voters,” Mondale said in an interview set to air this evening on CNN’s The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, according to a transcript from the network.

“Idiot board” is a term used in television and movie production to refer to boards held up for performers to read off.

“If you’re looking at the teleprompter, you’re here, you’re here, you’re here and you’re — your audience is right there,” Mondale said. “And I think he needs to do more of that.”

As Hot Air reminds us, do you really want Obama off script and off his teleprompter. Don’t ask for things they might come true Democrats. BTW Barack, it is not up to you as to who has the keys to the car, it is up to WE THE PEOPLE.


Or when the Teleprompter when blank and so did Obama this time … Remember this doozy! There really is a reason why they call it an “IDIOT BOARD”.

      Bad advice, IMO. When he’s off the prompter and left to his own devices, he’s much worse to listen to with all the hemming, hawing, and big spaces between words while he TRIES to think. He reads well, doesn’t speak well. He should stick to the prompter or the public will discover he has an IQ hovering around 100.

      In the 40s, a puppeteer came to our town. He held up
      the hand puppet above his head in the square opening
      of the facade stage. He must have felt something as the
      little puppets head came loose and rolled forward into
      the gasping crowd of kids, but continued with the
      script of the show anyway.

      He is a great reader of someone elses work. If you were to read what he has written himself, you would think an IQ of 100 is generous.

      This guy is really a pupeteer. He has an idea,then gets someone to write a speech for him to read. And to think that the people fell for his line of nonsense during the election.
