Rick Santorum Says ‘It Should be Illegal to Read Off a Teleprompter"

According to CNN, while campaigning at a restaurant in Gulfport, Mississippi, on Sunday afternoon, GOP candidate Rick Santorum said it should be illegal for a presidential candidate to use a teleprompter. Santorum also claimed that words on a teleprompter were not the candidate's words.

Santorum said: “See, I always believed that when you run for president of the United States, it should be illegal to read off a teleprompter. Because all you’re doing is reading someone else’s words to people.”

“You’re voting for someone who is going to be the leader of our government. It’s important for you to understand who that person is in their own words, see them, look them in the eye…hear what’s (in their) heart.”
