Obama Relies on Teleprompter

By Jim Meyers   |   Tuesday, 16 Sep 2008 01:20 PM

Barack Obama may have learned a lesson from his “lipstick on a pig” remark that generated sharp rebukes from the John McCain campaign.

Obama has used a teleprompter when delivering speeches, but normally he hasn’t employed one at standard campaign rallies and town hall events, CNN reported.

However, he did use a teleprompter at two campaign events in Colorado on Monday.

The use of the teleprompter is seen by some as a way to avoid off the cuff remarks like the “lipstick” quip he delivered at a town hall meeting in Virginia.

“You can put lipstick on a pig. It’s still a pig,” he said.

When vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin gave her acceptance speech at the Republican convention, she joked about being a hockey mom, saying the only difference between a pit bull and a hockey mom is lipstick.

McCain's campaign called Obama’s remark "offensive and disgraceful" and said Obama owed Palin an apology.

Obama insisted he wasn’t referring to Palin.
