Freak-out: Cruz announced for 2016 – without a teleprompter!

[Ed. – Dude, he’s, like, a circus performer or something.]

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) made his speech announcing that he would run for the presidency without the assistance of a teleprompter, his spokesman said Monday.

Cruz delivered his roughly half-hour announcement speech at evangelical Liberty University in Virginia. Pacing the stage, he laid out a deeply conservative message and began to introduce the public to his family’s backstory.
Using a prompter, which displays the speaker’s text on a screen, is standard practice for candidates and politicians at large events.
But Cruz does have a background in speaking off the cuff. As a lawyer, he has argued before the Supreme Court, where justices frequently push litigators away from their prepared text with questions and critiques. Cruz was also on the debate team while at Princeton University.
