Teleprompter Gaffe: President Obama Thanks Himself -- UPDATE: Where's the Video?
Andrew Breitbart presents Big HollyWood ^ | 3-18-09 | John Romano

Posted on 03/18/2009 4:40:48 PM PDT by webschooner

I’ve been searching for the video of Obama accidentally reading Irish PM Brian Cowen’s speech yesterday. He even thanks himself at the end! Apparently his teleprompter went loopy.

If this were GWB, the video would be everywhere, yet I can’t find a clip on the Internet of a public press conference that took place yesterday. It will come out, but this is amazing.

Thank Sky News for doing its job:

Mr Cowen stopped, turned to the president and said: “That’s your speech.”

A laughing Mr Obama returned to the podium to take over but it seems the script had finally been switched and the US president ended up thanking himself for inviting everyone to the party.

Mr Obama is an accomplished orator but is becoming known in America as the “teleprompt president” over his reliance on the machine when he gives a speech.

Be afraid everyone, be very afraid.

Update: 10:30 am PST: Still no video released. This is the third Obama gaffe with no video. First the wrong door incident at the White House, then the helicopter head bump and now this. A dangerous precedent is being set here. If any other politician made this kind of blunder it would be everywhere.

Update 4:00pm: Still no video. Stories are starting to appear blaming the whole thing on Irish PM Brian Cowen and insinuating that Obama thanked himself as a joke. That is not the tone of the original Sky News article and if that is the case why is the video still absent from the internet or cable news? It surely exists.

Re: that pic of Zero. What is it with this guy and the haughty sticking his chin in the air habit? Geesh. Didn’t Mussolini do that all the time? LOL. Arrogant so and so. There are so many pics of him doing that pose. Nose in air, smug expression. Must be Birth Certificate Envy. He feels less equal than all the rest of us that have one, therefore he compensates by acting like an arrogant jerk. sarcasm on.

Look for video from overseas sources. Sad as it is to say this, their MSM isn’t quite so completely co-opted, and dare I say it ... censored. Self-censored, yes, but censored just the same, as far as informing the public is concerned.

The way it’s being reported, it was Cowen who screwed up, reading Obama’s speech right after Obama had just delivered it. Of course, that might just be part of the cover up. Obama screws up, Cowen pretends it was he who screwed up.

Good thing he didn't get the fabled 3:00am phone call. He might have got the
wrong teleprompter script.

Maybe someone from the BBC or any other international press outfit that has no love lost for Obama has a video.

I did see the head bump video somewhere, and while funny it was not that big of a deal. Of course if Bush had done it we would have seen it 24/7 .

Instead of stealing the silverware (and everything else) Bubba and Co. should have stole the tell-O-prompter.

Kerry has the “haughty” market cornered. Also has the perpetually constipated look down pretty good too : )

Why would you need a teleprompter for a St. Patrick’s Day PARTY???? Hell, it wasn’t a national address. Could this guy buy a Big Mac without the teleprompter? He’s reading everything ... makes me wonder who’s writing what he’s reading? (Same folks that wrote his books?)

That’s what Rush said, why does anyone need a teleprompter at a party? The guy’s a puppet. Who is the puppet master,,,Soros? Rahmbo? Rush is on a roll with his teasing about the teleprompter. Funny how after all the teasing, Zero makes a huge gaffe involving the prompter.

Good point. Why is he having a teleprompter at the LA school town hall meeting tomorrow? They were just talking about it on KFI and said that they were fixing up the auditorium including setting up teleprompters!!!!

If Bush made this gaffe the late-night talk shows would be having fun with it for years afterward. But Obama? Dead silence.

I've never seen any evidence of that.

So who is feeding the Obamanista his words? We may never know for sure, but you can know where to go and see this teleprompter reading Muslim-Commie-Fraud properly mocked. Just click on the picture for over 100 teleprompter images at this sorry clowns expense.
