Speaking Aid

Republicans who disparage Obama for using a teleprompter and view “Front Row Seat: A Photographic Portrait of the Presidency of George W. Bush,” will no doubt want to skip the photo of Bush addressing the nation as he launched the Afghanistan war.
Images such as President Bush addressing the nation from the Treaty Room of the White House that U.S air strikes were underway in Afghanistan, portrays Bush not as the war time leader one may think but rather in a light of smallness, as he is seemingly engulfed by the teleprompters text. 
 Aside from reminding us that Obama is hardly the first president to use a teleprompter, the image described sounds like an honest portrait.
