Just when the teleprompter gets out of the news.
Maybe President Obama's teleprompter wanted more coverage. After all, last month it was getting a ton of media attention. Especially when the teleprompter was retired temporarily in favor of a giant IMAX-type screen at the president's last press conference.
Today, the teleprompter broke the moratorium and got back in the news cycle.
So far, so good. But then the jealous teleprompter demanded equal time.
When the president was announcing the members of his science and technology council, the teleprompter froze up.
Not having note cards, what else could the president do but admonish the TOTUS (Teleprompter of the United States) to knock it off.
“In addition to John…. sorry, the….. I just noticed that I jumped the gun here,” Obama said.
Then he laid the smackdown on the teleprompter.
“Go ahead and move it up,” he demanded of his machine. “I’d already – I’d already introduced all you guys.”
It was almost like a page out of the Stephen King movie, “Maximum Overdrive” where trucks, lawn mowers, and other machines came to life wreaking havoc on humanity.

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.
Somebody ping the left-wing media. TOTUS obviously wants Ubama to fail.
I’d sooner see him talking from notes than from the TOTUS.
Someone reported later on in the afternoon that they found an Official White House teleprompter under a public transportation Bus! They are investigating the incident....
Isn’t it something how this mumbling, stumbling, bumbling, fumbling fool is never criticized for anything no matter how stupid he comes off . . . just incredible!
See the FReeper’s quote in my tagline. NVA — great job
“I do not rely on...uh, ... hey can you scroll forward? .. do not rely on any external devices to.. uh, what is wrong with you guys tonight? Scroll it — scroll it..”
Later that afternoon there was a strange global warming phenomenon that caused the white house telepromter to jump in front of the metro.
The Totus threw Barry Soetoro under the bus.
Hannity just showed a clip of that TOTUS blooper moment. Equally amusing and pathetic.
When does he work???????
His MUG is always on TV reading those Signs!
TOTUS needs a getup. Some kind of costume, like women put on ducks and whatever in the yard.
The getup could change. Today would be dunce suit. Tomorrow might have a rain hat.
I suggest that a freeper do this.
Yeah, I think he’s pretty stupid too. But there are some smart (and fiendish) people surrounding and steering him.
