MSNBC hosts wondered whether President Obama lost last night's debate to Mitt Romney because he was unable to use a Teleprompter:

"There's another element here that perhaps should be under discussion: The president had no Teleprompter last night," said MSNBC host Mike Barnicle. "He speaks almost all the time off of a Teleprompter. Forced now to stand on his feet after years in the bubble, getting pushed back a little, he didn't do too well. He didn't do too well."

"Alright, even Bill Maher had to point that this was a rough one for the president, he tweeted this: 'i can't believe i'm saying this, but Obama looks like he DOES need a teleprompter,'" another host, Mika Brzezinski, added.
