Essential Obama

A teleprompter obscures U.S. President Obama as he speaks during a campaign event in Columbus, Ohio | View photo - Yahoo! News  Some photographs capture the essence of a person/ Some would say that this is the quissensial Obama photograph as the "telemprompter in chief" delivers his message of whatever the teleprompter says he should say. Paul Ryan by contrast "on the stump" doesn't need a teleprompter to deliver coherent thoughts when he speaks. I guess when you know what you are talking about you don't have to rely as much on a machine to prompt you on what to say.

This photograph reminds me of a song called "Machine Head" ironically sung by the band "Bush".
