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.

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.
