Ode To AP’s Ron Fournier

After President Obama’s outstanding performance during his second primetime press conference, the AP’s Ron Fournier had some column inches to fill. So, what words of wisdom did he share in his “news analysis?” Obama really “likes to have [his words] up on the Teleprompter.”

How nice to know we can count on Fournier to perpetuate the “Obama can’t talk without his Teleprompter crutch” rubbish. Apparently, poor Ron can’t write without a nonsensical meme:

Ode To Ron Fournier (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Dear Ron, you have nothing to say.
But, alas, you’re on deadline today.
Just continue a meme
Like that lame prompter theme.
Maybe someday you’ll merit your pay.

    It may be possible (if not probable) for a person with adequate writing skills and mediocre ideas to have access to a commercial public forum but the product of of that person’s efforts will always result in mediocrity spiraling down to inadequacy.

    I think Obama has handled himself well at his pressers. How could that be, if he has to have a TelePrompTer to provide him his every word? Does he have some sort of prompting device hidden in his suit coat? Oh, wait, that was another preznit…

    Fournier is a washed-out, sold-out hack. Who cares what he says.

    LOL, Steve! Unfortunately, we have to presume he has a lot more influence than he deserves.

  4. Well, you have to admit, GWB’s facile verbal skills are a tough act to follow….or something, anyway!

    President Obama, tis such a shame
    His speaking skills are so lame
    A teleprompter he did need…
    Orate he could not, he had to read.

    Still and all, it must be hard
    Since GWB was such a bard.
    Following one as smart as Bush
    Must be like a kick in the tush!

    Forgive my lame poetry, but Mad, you inspired me!
