11. Again, scripted shows...

With a basic outline and basic dialogue to move the plot along. Obama is not an actor who's playing a role ... he's the President of the United States. He doesn't have the luxury to write, rewrite and map out an entire debate. Yes, I understand that West Wing episode was 'live' when it originally aired ... but the whole plot was already long developed and the actors long memorized their lines. What Santos read was a line from a script that was written and rewritten by a writer who also wrote the perfect segue to that comment.

It's not real life. I hate when people compare presidents to actors from a scripted show.
