HuffPo says Rand Paul used teleprompters at Howard U., I didn't see them

I could not detect Teleprompters at Rand's Speech, they should be a few feet in front of him.

While I did see the reflection mounts, the actual teleprompters would be on the floor as shown, but were not.


Anybody have different view or info.

Yup, they were on either side of him.

See the still picture.

Why are they making a big deal out this? Rand already showed that he could filibuster 13 hours without a teleprompter.

Maybe he Tailored the Speech

Maybe he just tailored this speech for the crowd. Most being Obama supporters, they might of thought him a redneck if he didn't have one of those sophisticated telepropters. They're all the rage for "educated" pubic speaking.

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom — go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, an

He did use them.

I was caught off guard when the camera panned out for a wide view and they were visible. I'm very upset about this because if Rand was trying to reach out to these people he should've spoken from the heart like his father. Using teleprompters is for puppets spewing propaganda that someone else wrote for them. Makes me miss Ron more, and more.

The good news is

That the vast majority of them are Obama supporters so we know they shouldn't have a problem with teleprompters.

Ron Paul convert from the Heart of Dixie


Whether he did or not but it certainly wouldn't surprise me if it's pure BS that they made up since he didn't live up to their riacist right-wing conspiracy nut prediction.

I'm not even going to click on the link because I always end up scrolling down to the comments which just pisses me off, then I end up replying to the utter ignorance that is posted there for hours...

Ron Paul convert from the Heart of Dixie

lol i feel your pain

I do the same thing and thankfully I just steer away before I get too angry and start posting there.

Ariana(sp) Huffington was on real time with Bill Maher awhile after Rand did his 13 hour filibuster. She said something to the effect of, I don't even understand why he did it, this is not how to win support.

I knew Bill wouldn't get it, or he would at least pretend he didn't as the look-aid cups circulated through the audience. The anti-war liberals who forgot that troops are still abroad and the likes of the NDAA seems to make them docile and forgetful since c'mon he's a black president can't protest that that's racist...

It's the beginning of their smears against Rand. If the message didn't get into their heads they turned to the line that was towed against Obama long ago for using a teleprompter. I'd like to think the reason he used one is just so he wouldn't have to look down at papers. But I do agree that he should have just spoken from his heart. Either way, don't let it bother you guys that the story popped up on huffpo.

Homeland security statement: patriotism is now considered terrorism.
I love www.isidewith.com shared it with everyone I know. If anything they realize its not just a red and blue idiot running for reelection.
