If any of you watched the Memorial Service Pep Rally on Wednesday in Tucson, I bet you, like me, were wondering about all the applause and cheering going on during Obama’s speech. Myself, I though it was very disgraceful to turn a memorial into a campaign rally. Even Robert Gibbs claimed he didn’t know why all the applause.
Well, it seems here’s the reason for all the applause and cheering. This is the jumbotron in use during the “service”.

Are you fucking kidding me? That applause was prompted???

I couldn't even watch it. I heard all the hoops and hollers and changed it right away. It was sick.

Proof that this administration is just a really bad sitcom....and I ain't laughin'.....

one wonders how long it will be before not applauding when prompted/ordered to do so will become a racist hate crime.

First I heard of this issue was someone saying that this was closed captioning describing what the audience was already doing, not orders to the audience. Seems plausible, and that sort of crap is the least of my worries with Obama.

WHAT HE SAID WAS VERY NUETRAL AND BLAND. HE DIDN'T CALL FOR GUN CONTROL OR RESTRICTIONS ON 1ST. AMMENDMENT RIGHTS, BUT HE WOULD HAVE IF HE THOUGHT HE COULD GET AWAY WITH IT.
I ALSO NOTICED HIS CHOICE OF VENUE AND AUDIENCE WAS CHERRY PICKED. A BUNCH OF COLLEGE STUDENTS?? FOR CHRISSAKE HE FLAT OUT CAN'T COPE WITH AN AUDIENCE OF NORMAL PEOPLE WHO DO NOT WORSHIP HIM.
FUCK YOU OBAMA

PAUL IN TEXAS

Sevesteen, I'm pretty sure that anybody in the audience would be able to SEE if people were applauding and cheering without having to read it and the screen shown wouldn't be visible to those watching at home. Besides, their own closed captioning would've sufficed.

Thank you, Wirecutter. It is so nice to read posts that are logical and reasonable, setting straight those who cannot see.

TOTUS and anonymous speech writers are what we have had in place of a President for the last two years. Along with a socialist strawman who plays golf, kisses basketballs, and is married to Marie Antoinette ("Let them eat cake. No, that will make the children fat. Let them eat tofu"), both of whom are on a permanent vacation at taxpayer expense.
