Did you watch President Obama's speech Thursday?
Constant back and forth between the teleprompters, like each contained only a word or two.
He was speaking in the White House dining room, without an audience, and he used the style of teleprompter reading that has him looking to one side for a while and then to the other, as if he were addressing a roomful of people. I guess there were people in the room, technicians and advisers, but we TV-watchers were the audience, and the side-to-side business felt evasive. He looked and sounded half robotic and half scared.Your head usually doesn't move that fast at center court of Wimbledon.
And he didn't look straight into the camera while I watched.
Evasive sounds right.
