    Just got done reading the transcript, and can only imagine his little temper tantrums and scolding looks.
    The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

      They also tend to clean up the transcript a bit too.

        Kinda like the Book of Mormon if you take out all the "And it came to pass" phrases, it'd be a pamphlet?

        If you take out all the stuttering and stammering, Joe's speech would be shorter?

          You also see it in things like where he gets people's names wrong. A couple months back he referred to Shelia Jackson Lee as Shirley Jackson Lee and then twice referred to a Congresswoman by using her middle name for her last name. But when you looked at the official transcript, these errors were fixed for him.

            But they did the same for Trump, didn't they?

                That actually happened to me one day!!!! (kinda)

                We were doing an internet infrastructure install on the 3 floor of a hotel in Houston. We parked in the parking garage, and walked across the "sky bridge" to the floor we where we were working.
                We had brought our lunches, because this was going to be an all day install.

                As we were finishing up, I asked one of our guys to start packing our stuff up and take it to our trucks. He came back in just a few minutes and said "there's no way out".
                Realizing how nutty that was, I walked him down the hall, and around the corner where the sky bridge .... WAS!!!! But is no more!!!!

                They had closed off that entry, sheetrocked it, painted it, and we only found that out as we went down the elevator, across to the parking garage, up to our trucks where we saw the workers painting the "outside" part of the wall -- where we had gone in.

                They were going for that "controlled access" thing where you could only come in past the receptionist on the ground floor. But it sure was puzzling at first - like the TWILIGHT ZONE!!!!

                  yeah he was constantly slurring his words and correcting himself as he misread the teleprompter.

                    They did include a few very minor missteps like

                    Even as the Delta variant 19 [sic] has — COVID-19 — has been hitting this country hard


                    First, we have cons- — we have made considerable progress

                      So I watched part of it ----

                      Something I noticed - he had his eyes open. Usually he's doing that SQUINT like he's having a hard time reading the prompter.

                        after watching that speech, go on youtube and find one of his speeches when he was Vice President and compare. Both his speech and animation were considerably different than now. Back then he spoke clearly, was lively and animated in his motions, but now, he stands there like a robot, and slurs his words like a drunk.

                          He could go straight for the ice cream.

                            You can go back just a year ago to the various debates. Old Joe was having obvious difficulties back then but nothing compared to what we see now.
