Skip to comments.Obama's Teleprompter Malfunctions- He Thanks Himself For Having White House Party
Posted on 03/18/2009 10:00:20 AM PDT by Sasparilla
At a St. Patrick's day party at the White House on 03/17/09, Irish Prime minister Cowen was just a few lines into his speech when he stopped reading from the teleprompter and told Obama that he was reading the same speech that Obama had just read.
Obama took to the stage again to try to save the day, and when he reached the stage, the teleprompter switched to the correct speech for the prime minister. Barack Obama started reading the Irish Prime Minister's speech, and thanked himself for giving the St. Patrick's Day party at the White House, when he realized the mistake.
Perhaps it was the green beer that made the Irishman for the day, Barack O'bama unconscious to what he was reading.
Obama is not a great speaker, as his flunkies would have those who are gullible in America to believe. He is just a talking head like those who give the 6 o'clock news. If its not preprogrammed onto his teleprompters, he is at a loss for words.
Incredibly, Obama is so smooth at reading from a teleprompter and that he doesn't even know or comprehend what he is reading to the world. Hopefully, some prankster won't let Obama read from the teleprompter that the 101st Airborne landed just south of the Moscow city limits for maneuvers. Obviously, what's next is an embarrassing open mike moment, where Obama spontaneously says what he is really thinking.

After all, the Son of Pork is the glorious change we’ve all been waiting for!
Wow! Barry can read!
Like any other affirmative action hire who reached his Peter’s principle upper limit the day he was sworn in Obama is in way over his head, but we cant fire him.
I’m not sure what I just read. Is this real? I didn’t even drink any green beer yesterday.
This is really creepy - I mean - a TELEPROMTER to respond and welcome an Irishman on St. Pat’s Day? Is Obama so stupid and insecure that he cannot speak off the cuff? That is evidence of genuine lack of intelligence.
President Bush must be giggling his butt off right about now. “And they thought I was ignorant? At least I didn’t misunderestimate the effects of my own strategery.”
Sigh, I miss ‘W.’
Same with me..it reads like a joke..but in the bizarro world right now it could be real.
Dumb as a box of rocks.
Apparently, we have a Teleprompter for a President. For years, the Doonesbury guy has been drawing a feather in front of a microphone to depict President Bush. By all rights, he’s missing a real funny method of depicting President Obama - by drawing a teleprompter standing alone in front of a microphone.
In those cases, we promote them upwards into a non-threatening position: Can you say “U.N. Secretary General Obama?”
"For the last time, anything you put on that prompter,
Burgundy will read.
This shows just how dumb as dirt Obambi truly is.
what a dumb a**
Affirmative action in action!
Anyone else feel like they just stepped through the looking glass? This is unreal.
Our “Affirmitive action” President evidently missed the class on teleprompters.
Of course, this will NEVER make the news reports...
All I can do is shake my head in wonder that the idiots who tried to say George Bush was a dummy voted for THIS moron. He is a MORON. -A self-absorbed half wit.
I just printed that out in color and hung it on my cubicle wall. Very nice.
Hats off to McGruff.
Will Leno, Stewart, Maher, Letterman bring this up in their routines? I’m not holding my breath...
” That same prompter also helped Obama with his Final Four picks.”
Obama had time yesterday to spend time with Katz of ESPN discussing his picks, he was very conversant about stats and injuries,
and then he filled in his brackets, explaining his strategy with each pick.
Obviously, Barry has been studying intently.
Not the military or the wars or economics, but,college basketball.
He had no idea about the AIG bonuses which were discussed by Congress last fall.
Of which he was a part time member.
Obama then partied all day with green beer, “ green sparkling wine,”
a “ flowing open bar “ and Guinness.
And today he’s off to Leno.
I wonder if his teleprompter has a drinking problem,
because it obviously has a party problem.
Does his teleprompter still smoke, I wonder ?
I hope it hasn’t fallen back into using street drugs.
Ladies and gentlemen: The Teleprompter of the United States (TOTUS).
Actually, he is smart enough to know that he looks like a fool when he is off-teleprompter. And now he looks like a fool when he is ON teleprompter.
SNL could have a field day with a skit about a president who reads every single word off a teleprompter. I might even watch it, too.
Obama makes “W” look like a wizard, a genius and a scholar!
Kinda like the old Brezhnev joke where he yells at his speechwriter because he wanted a 10-minute speech but the speechwriter gave him a 20-minute speech. Speechwriter tells him he gave him the speech and a carbon copy “just in case” like he was ordered to.
Our country is being run by a teleprompter.
Should we rename Him “Obrompter”? It has a nice Irish sound to it.
It must be terrifying to realize the only way you can do your job is to have every word scripted.
He is a megatard!
Obviously, what’s next is an embarrassing open mike moment, where Obama spontaneously says what he is really thinking.
Here’s my idea of what that might sound like;
Duh, uhruh, uhm, er, uh, I need a smoke, uh, deruh, an’ some crack, uh, where’s my crack pipe?
" ... and
F#$K YOU, San Diego. Good Night."
Definitely not in Kansas anymore. Or any of the other 56 states, for that matter.
According to the blog: "The video was not released by the MSM to keep the embarrassment confined to the ballroom. "
And we all KNOW if this was bush, the MSM would have made this their opening breaking story.
Obama...the first President to screw up taking the oath of office. Of course that was the fault of an evil Republican, like everything else that has gone wrong or will go wrong during his administration.
Not sure I should admit this, but I hadn’t realized until a week or two ago (when other teleprompter outrages were being discussed here) that those rectangular looking glass thingies were teleprompters. I knew teleprompters were being used, but I thought they were embedded in the lectern. I had wondered what the purpose of those glass stands were, and thought they had something to do with security.
That aside, there have been several posters who have suggested teleprompter cartoons. I’d like to throw one in I thought of when I was grocery shopping— Barky pushing a shopping cart with the teleprompters on each side displaying, “eggs, milk, wagyu beef...”
This can only happen when you have an equal opportunity pres__ent reading from an equal opportunity operated teleprompter.
Well Reagan once said "My fellow Americans, I'm pleased to tell you today that I've signed legislation that will outlaw Russia forever. We begin bombing in five minutes."
Difference being: Reagan ad-libbed a joke when they asked him to say a few words for a sound check; Bearach O'Barmy needs a teleprompter to do a sound check.
