Obama-speak Without a Teleprompter

This is Barack Obama speaking at a campaign event last Thursday in Bristol, Virginia,

“What they’ll say is, “Well it costs too much money,” but you know what? It would cost, about… It — it — it would cost about the same as what we would spend… It… Over the course of 10 years it would cost what it would costs us… (nervous laugh) All right. Okay. We’re going to… It… It would cost us about the same as it would cost for about — hold on one second. I can’t hear myself. But I’m glad you’re fired up, though. I’m glad.”

“Everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma, they end up taking up a hospital bed, it costs, when, if you, they just gave, you gave them treatment early and they got some treatment, and a, a breathalyzer, or inhalator, not a breathalyzer. (crowd laughing) I haven’t had much sleep in the last 48 hours.”
What?!

Barack’s dramatic speaking ability seems to have been turned off along with his teleprompter.  Is he a great speaker or simply a great reader?  Is this the type of dialogue we can expect while he is negotiating with world leaders.  Is this an example of what we can expect in the White House Situation Room during a crisis?
