Three minutes, two teleprompters
Washington Examiner ^ | Monday August 29, 2011 | Hayley Peterson

Posted on 08/29/2011 10:14:37 AM PDT by Bigtigermike

President Obama required two heavy-duty teleprompters on Monday during a three-minute speech in which he nominated Alan Krueger to serve as chairman of his Council of Economic Advisers.

"I am very pleased to appoint Alan and I look forward to working with him," Obama said, staring at the large, flat-screen monitor to his right, then shifting his eyes to the teleprompter on his right. "I have nothing but confidence in Alan as he takes on this important role as one of the leaders of my economic team."

President Obama walks into the Bank of America to cash a check. As he
approaches the cashier he says: “Good morning Ma’am, could you please cash
this check for me”?

Cashier: “It would be my pleasure sir. Could you please show me your ID”?

Obama: “Truthfully, I did not bring my ID with me as I didn’t think there
was any need to. I am President Barrack Obama, the president of the United
States of America!”

Cashier: “Yes sir, I know who you are, but with all the regulations,
monitoring, of the banks because of impostors and forgers, etc I must insist
on seeing ID”

Obama: “Just ask anyone here at the bank who I am and they will tell you.
Everybody knows who I am”

Cashier: “I am sorry Mr. President but these are the bank rules and I must
follow them.”

Obama: “I am urging you please to cash this check”

Cashier: “Look Mr. President this is what we can do: One day Tiger Woods
came into the bank without ID. To prove he was Tiger Woods he pulled out his
putting iron and made a beautiful shot across the bank into a cup. With that
shot we knew him to be Tiger Woods and cashed his check. Another time, Andre
Agassi came in without ID. He pulled out his tennis racquet and made a
fabulous shot whereas the tennis ball landed in my cup. With that shot we
cashed his check.

So, Mr. President, what can you do to prove that it is you, and only you, as
the President of the United States ?”

Obama stood there thinking, and thinking and finally says: “Honestly, there
is nothing that comes to my mind. I can’t think of a single thing”

Cashier: “Will that be large or small bills, Mr. President?”

Alan Krueger to serve as chairman of his Council of Economic Advisers.

If you do a Google on this guy you will see he is another "spend our way to prosperity" academic with ZERO experience, or understanding, of the real world.

0 is going to double down on his current policy errors rather then learn anything from his current abject failure.

I would LOVE for some conservative gen-x’er (yes, they do exist) to hack into the controls of the Teleprompter of the United States and substitute words to the effect “I resign from the office of the president of the US. . . .” He’s so clueless he’d utter the words without realizing it.

“...”I am very pleased to appoint Alan and I look forward to working with him,” Obama said, staring at the large, flat-screen monitor to his right, then shifting his eyes to the teleprompter on his right.”

So Obama lied almost immediately in his opening statement. He claimed to be looking forward when he was actually looking at a teleprompter on his right.

It got old a long time ago watching this guy’s head go back and forth reading the teleprompter. It looks like he is at a tennis match watching the tennis ball.

It drives me crazy that the left talks about how smart and what a great speaker he is. So many people, so full of sh*t.

Why tune in to listen to anything he has to say, it's all reading someone else's words from a teleprompter, or his own stuttering and fumbling of words.

You just know that in the upcoming presidential debates he will have access to the questions beforehand in order to form a partially cogent response.

He needs 2 telepromtors because he never knows when one of them will start acting racist and begin to malfunction.

I'm not sure if we should applaud Mr. Krueger's bravery for boarding the Titanic or laugh at his stupidity.

2 years from now at the unemployment office:

-- And what was your last job, Mr. Krueger?

--Uhhhh, I was afraid you were going that question.

I see, he can’t read a whole paragraph without getting lost so he has to have alternating teleprompters.

Nothing tops Obama’s use of teleprompters as when he used them to speak to a 5th grade class. You would think after being a US Senator he would have developed some speaking ability and could at least address some grade school kids without being scripted Barry’s whole life is a scripted concoction.

The media, of course, will return like migratory birds to the ‘Obama is a great communicator’ line during all of 2012 despite all evidence to the contrary including the glaze-eyed union automatons herded onto bleachers to act as a human backdrop for one of his ludicrous sleeves-rolled-up appearances.

Bingo!! Guy has been a professor since receiving his PhD. Has never worked outside the academic field. It's going to be just the same old stuff from Team Obama. It's positively scary how little private sector experience exists in this Administration. Starts at the top and goes all the way through the Cabinet, czars, etc. These people are dangerously clueless about the private sector. The economy is NEVER going to get better with this team in charge.

OMG the person responsible would go down in history as one of the greatest patriots ever.

"rumors should be started that O’Bummer has Alzheimer’s disease."

My daughter-in-law won't speak to me now because I posted on Facebook the video of Obama on July 15th saying he was turning 50 in a week. That would make his birthday July 22nd not August 4th like the phoney birth certificate says. My coment was one would have to have Alzheimer's or not be who they say they are if they don't know their birthday (as per the BC).

She took offense and hasn't spoken to me since.
