Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said he wants to be fair with President Obama in anticipated debates if he’s the GOP presidential nominee – so he’ll let Obama use a teleprompter.
The president, who is notorious for using a teleprompter for even the most “impromptu” remarks, likely will need electronic help defending Obamacare, Gingrich joked recently.
"I already said that if he wants to use a teleprompter, then it would be fine with me. It has to be fair. If you [were] to defend ObamaCare, wouldn't you want a teleprompter?" Gingrich asked, according to Shark Tank Media.
"Now, just for a second I'm going to go in the detour and I'll try to explain why I've been and he'll say yes. There are two reasons. The first, is ego. Can you imagine him looking in the mirror? Graduate from Columbia, Harvard Law, editor of the Law Review journal. [Against] the greatest articulator in a Democratic book?"
"How is he going to say that he's afraid to be on the same podium as a West Georgia College student?"
