Why did Netanyahu not use a teleprompter for his speach?

Remember Bush one in the debates? Could just have been well-rehearsed but an ear bud isn't exactly 22nd century technology ya know.

Good point.
He probably did not want to risk a "challenge" with the device...

If you have a teleprompter then you would be staring at it the entire time. Because of how the room is shaped with the audience all around him, he would have to have like 3 set up in order to look at them and still naturally address the room. You want to be able to look out at the crowd and look at each person while speaking, so it is a bad idea in that location.

He had note cards though, and he used them a lot. Especially after you mentioned it and I went to watch it, he looks down at his note cards way too much.

Also, he seemed to have the notes on about 20 sheets of paper.
Interesting.

Agreed. Very short major points to be made...one page per point. I think it is because it made it easier to edit right up until the time he gave the speech without throwing a wrench into it. I have the feeling every word had been debated over and over and over. A very rehearsed speech. Take the opening...when he was kissing ass like Harry Reid. He expected to milk it for applause that did not come...(when he said something like "goes to prove the old saying...you can't keep a good man down").

The status quo is no longer sustainable .... he came to argue for the status quo .... or WWIII ... our choice.

I agree--it was carefully considered. I think the overused phrase is a subtle slam on Harry. It associated awkwardness with Reid IMO
