Posted on 03/25/2009 6:03:20 AM PDT by Sasparilla
It was apparent that Barack Obama had a new teleprompter at last night's press conference. His head was not bobbing back and forth from left to right. He looking straight ahead in a fixed, glazed eyed, deer in the headlights stare into space as he read the speech. This was early evidence that he fired his trusty teleprompters that stood faithfully by his side and worked so well for him from the beginning of the campaign. His unblinking stare would have gotten any other citizen who did this while driving his car a police test for impaired driving. This firing of his two trusted aides should be an ominous warning for Treasury secretary Tim Geithner.
Barack's new teleprompter did let him down just like a failed Commerce Secretary appointee when it caused him to stumble during the speech reading. After the word flub, the TV audience could see several reporters look over their right shoulders to see the offending teleprompter standing quietly in the center of the room behind their backs.
The spiffy new teleprompter looked like a 52 inch wide screen model that was probably a a Taiwanese, Mexican or Malaysian national. The new teleprompter was hired soon enough before e-verify can be implemented to escape close immigration scrutiny. Thus, Obama avoided illegal foreign employee problems faced by Zoe Baird.

Will the fired TOTI get unemployment benefits?
WHY does the Mighty Media Monolith COVER-UP that he is so telepromptor-dependent? So UNSPONTANEOUS??
TOTUS must be jealous of MOTUS....although MOTUS was a BIG disappointment to Bammy. MOTUS didin’t give good readings.
No, but it will get its contracted excessive bonus, though taxed at 90%...
-this author better watch it. This is most assuredly about to become a forbidden statement--(sarc)
HE CAN READ.
(It's understanding that he has failed to grasp.)
Sign the petition. Sink Obamba. He needs to move out of the White House and take his swing set with him!
“Those aren’t the tele-prompters I Knew”.
Soon, I predict, TOTUS will be outfitted with special contact lenses that bring the words up via a wireless connection.
The press will breathlessly report TOTUS is no longer dependent on a script...because the script will be unseen.
(off half-joke mode)
Wow. Maybe they should just have the reporters read the speech off the screen themselves while President Weathervane is off somewhere else.. ahem... “saving” the world.
I would love to see somebody casually unplug the power cord while TOTUS is in mid-sentence!
This was all about keeping the teleprompters out of camera angles. If you know how the magician saws the lady in half the trick looses its appeal. Same with Obama speaking.
I wrote yesterday he’s upgrading from a plain ol’ prompter to KITT from Knight Rider as his new spokesmachine...
The robot from Lost in Space and HAL the Computer are also on the shortlist.....
Somebody should do a parody of Obama and his teleprompter in the same style as the “Baby come back” Swifter commercials.
