President Barack Obama is facing criticism yet again after using a podium and teleprompter to address a sixth grade classroom in Virginia. Read more on this story and see video of his speech below.
President Obama spoke to the media after talking to sixth grade students at Graham Road Elementary School in Falls Church, Virginia.
Obama didn’t speak to the children from the podium but why did he need a teleprompter to talk to the media?
Obama’s use of the teleprompter comes at a time when Obama’s approval rating is way down. According to the Zogby pollin the Washington Times, only 43% of Americans would re-elect Obama, which is 10% lower than his rating was just a year ago.
The presidents negative poll results comes on the heels of the Republican’s big victory of Scott Brown winning Kennedy’s seat in the Massachusetts senate race last week.
