Rubio Reads Obama Slam From TelePrompter

Would this be considered blatant hypocrisy or merely hypocrisy?

The Tea Party's choice in the Florida Republican primary, Marco Rubio, began his address to a crowd of conservative conventioneers by taking a shot at President Obama for reading from a teleprompter. He did it while standing in front of two easily visible teleprompters.

It was unclear whether the devices were placed there for him or for other speakers at the Conservative Political Action Committee conference, or CPAC, at which he was a keynote speaker. A HuffPost reporter, however, watched his speech from the front row and Rubio could clearly be seen looking intently and repeatedly at the teleprompters. He also had a stack of papers with him at the lectern and flipped through them as the speech progressed, perhaps unwilling to take any chance he would flub the swipe at Obama.
This whole right-wing "the well-educated former editor of the Harvard Law Review who got himself elected president of the United States actually can't string three words together without reading them" talking point is becoming as tiresome as it is ridiculous, and Marco Rubio is obviously a man without shame.

I can't believe these people are so stupid that they think "most people" can't see through them. The Wash Post gave him a huge write-up.

Most people do see through this kind of bullshit Leslie, but Rubio was speaking to the minority of Americans who automatically lap up this kind of populist vilification. No need for logic or truthfulness with that crowd.
