What kind of politician brings a teleprompter to a news conference?OK, this is not the opening soliloquy from Shakespeare's Richard III. There is no reason that simple talking-points lines like that should require a teleprompter. The guy is becoming a punchline.
A careful one.
President Barack Obama took no chances in his second prime-time news conference, reading a prepared statement in which he took both sides of the AIG bonus brouhaha and asked an anxious nation for its patience.
"There are no quick fixes," he said, "and there are no silver bullets."

UPDATE II: Jules Crittenden asks, "Which tragic, or tragicomic Shakespearean figure is Obama?" (And if you say Othello, you're a racist.)
