Obama's Teleprompter Malfunctions- He Thanks Himself For Having White House Party
http://secondamendmentfreedom.blogspot.com/ ^ | 03/19/09 | Sasparilla

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.

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.’

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.

” 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
