Getting Obama in the Can

Debates are discussions not speeches. They are supposed to be a test of the candidates' ability to reason out an argument "on his feet." They are not supposed to be little "canned speeches" but a process of argumentation and back and forth discussion that demonstrates the candidate's depth of understanding and his ability to present his arguments in a convincing manner. Using a teleprompter shows weakness and defeats the purpose of a debate. Each candidate should know their own positions well enough to argue them unaided.

It all comes from what you feel in your heart. When you have to hide what is in your heart as Obama does, you have to be particularly careful in what you say. The teleprompters make sure he does not go off message and show the world his true self. We would all be much more afraid if we knew the truth.

Absolutely, the best comment on the thread Isiani. You nailed it beautifully.

As they say in Hollywood, “the results are in the can.” 

Mitt Romney wants to take the video footage of the recent presidential debate and arrange a Hollywood premier complete with limos, spotlights, and the red carpet. 

On the other hand, Barack Obama is wishing that the film could go through extensive editing and a definite rewrite. 

I’ve listened to both sides talk about the President regarding preparedness, his ability to focus, and his seemingly inattention to detail, and it was duly noted. 

But I thought there...
