To Deafened: The bikes are loud so four-wheelers don't hit us. - Story City 50248 Building wind tower farms to harness the power for electricity sounds like a great idea for saving us heating and cooling costs here in central Iowa since many of the farms are nearby.

Spoken like a true Palin fan. Pure ignorance and petty dishonesty. Truely is a case of the blind leading the blind.
Obama totally has to use a teleprompter...except for all those campaign rallies, the presidential debates, press conferences, interviews, town hall meetings and when he made the House GOP look like the petty little children they are at their retreat last week. Yep. Can't speak without a teleprompter.
President Barack Obama doesn’t go anywhere without his TelePrompter.

The textbook-sized panes of glass holding the president’s prepared remarks follow him wherever he speaks.

Resting on top of a tall, narrow pole, they flank his podium during speeches in the White House’s stately parlors. They stood next to him on the floor of a manufacturing plant in Indiana as he pitched his economic stimulus plan. They traveled to the Department of Transportation this week and were in the Capitol Rotunda last month when he paid tribute to Abraham Lincoln in six-minute prepared remarks.

Obama’s reliance on the teleprompter is unusual — not only because he is famous for his oratory, but because no other president has used one so consistently and at so many events, large and small.

Your right I am the only one that sees he can't speak w/o a teleprompter - It would be nice if you got your facts right prior to resorting to name calling and insults.

Your "proof" is a Politico editorial? Seriously? C'mon.

Look, President Obama uses a teleprompter for official speeches. That is not uncommon. If you want to analyze whether or not he uses one more or less than other presidents go ahead and waste your time. I don't really see what it matters.

But you take to the point of his unhinged critics when you say, "he can't speak w/o a teleprompter." You really think he can't speak at all without a teleprompter? Really? Statements like that give you away as just another of his unhinged critics. You may not like his politics, but are you actually going to sit here and tell me that he is not an intelligent, capable man? Even Republicans on the Hill admit that he is highly intelligent with a deep knowledge and understanding of the issues. As I pointed out in my earlier post, what about the debates? How about all the interviews? No teleprompter and he did just fine. I highly encourage you to watch the video of Obama's speech and Q & A at the House Republican retreat and then tell me he can't speak without a teleprompter. Actually, I imagine anyone who says that probably can't be convinced otherwise considering all contradictory proof that already exists. You have your anti-Obama right-wing narratives - he's a socialist, he wasn't born in this country, it is his debt and his recession, he is weak against terror, he can't speak without a teleprompter - and you are going to stick to them reality be damned!

Congrats to our Gov and his fellow democrats. He has solved the birth control problem in Iowa. As his first didpline was teaching, "Go forth and multipy" does not mean using math. He shuld constate on the unemployed and the loss of homes in Iowa. After the last round of cuts, his math skills need honeing.

Only in Iowa can the PTA, After school actiivies be cancelled and still have school for our children. Placing them in harms way just to save on SNOW DAYS is too radical for me. Our children should be protected, not jus USED. Maybe it's time to place in the responsible positions, people with scnse, COMMON SENSE, AND FIRE THE LAWYERS.!!!!!!!!

Another Democrat has jumped ship because of the problems with our Congress and House. COngrats to him. The Gov has stopped listening to the people and go behiend closed doors to sign bills the
PEOPLE do not want or need. We allow drunks and gamblers to SMOKE in public places, duble standards. How can our Gov govern when he can't even control his house on smoking !!!!.

Illegals. Fact: there are over 30 million in the US. The Fed's allow them to cross daily and don't do anything about it. The Bordor Patrol hands are tied. It appears the Democrats want the illegals in the US to vote for them. In the 17 hundard block of I. Grand, I have seen a white van stop and the doors open and out comes 15 - 20 mexicans cararing back packs, scatter to the four winds. Now that area is another little mexico.....Any comment from the fed's ????

Only in America can our hired officials, drink, now they can smoke POT. Is that what we want?? Even the Homo's in the mitary can take a break to adjust thier panty hose and put on makeup while in battle. It's great when the majority of voters are not allowed to express their opinion and let the polititions go behiend clesed doors, smoke their pot and make decisions that will huant us for decades.

ZOur govenor is once again going to balance HIS gudget on the backs of the working poor. My property tax has increased 162% in the past two years and now told they will agin incresse this year. It's roumered that the state income tax is also going up. Why not. We, the AMERICANS have to maintain a budget. To bad the it's gotten so far out of hand. Much be great to be a democrat and not be held responsible for their actions. Only in America!!!!!!!!!!

Reinvenat the wheel. It appears to the majority of voters that our "law makeers" constantly make new laws when laws on the books cover the majority of problems.(my experience) The knew jerk reaction is getting to be more noticed by the voters and the public officials should watch what they enact and start looking out for the public and not their future. It may be too late for some of the democrats to recover from their party lines and not listting to the voters. God luck to them. The deocrats hav lost my vote forever folling the office of the preiden like so many sheep.

Where is it written the DEMOCRATS are always correct in what the PEOPLE want. It appears they can't even keep their own homes together, let alone the United States Of America. Some of the prresidents remarks are raceist at best........ We need a new congress and seanate. The one's we have in office now aren't playing with a full deck. My opinion, and yes I have an opinion and it's not always wrong.

First off, if you are going to bomb this thread with posts, please learn to spell.

Second, what remarks from the President, who was raised by his white mother and grandparents, are racist? Gotta be able to back that kind of BS up.

Check the NEW 28 admenment to the consitution. Simply states that our elected (officials ???) will not be resonsibile for any of their actions, Durnks, smoking pot, lying to the public, and many more items. Also only serving for one year and retiring at full pay for the rest of thier lives, Not paying for mdicical care. They think they are GOD and are acting like it, and we the tax payers can't do anything about it because THEY go behiend closed doors and vote themselves these perts. It has got to STOP and the AMERICANS have got to take back AMERICA..........

Ever wonder why the 30,000,000 illegials remain in America, draining our hospitals of OUR money. When obama is close to the election time he will in all probility grant them citizenship so he will have more votes..... Just go to the emergency rooms and see how many illegals are there on a nightly basis. How long do we support the illegals before we start helping our own. Obams uses the expression, "DO WHAT I SAY NOT WHAT I DO" Leaders shouuld LEAD BY EXAMPLE. Not behiend colsed doors and listen to their peers and others alike........ Not like the democrats in office today

NO SMOKING. Where else can the President, Senators, COngrssman and the first lady of Iowa SMOKE in Fed and State buildings with immunity. They make the laws we have fo obey, HOWEVER, they do anything they want to all the time. Isn't AMERICA great. Whey (our elected ones) pass the law to smoke pot, It will be another milestone in our corrupt goverment.

Why in these trying times, do our "Law Makers" increase their pay while the tax payers lose their jobs, homes, familes ???? Its time for the elected officials as they call themselves, pay for thier health insurance and retirement like most of the other people in the world..........I'm almost 80 years old and will lose my home because of the Taxes imposed upon us by others. Time to take back AMERICA..........
