Obama’s telepromtper gets nasty when it’s drunk

You know, if you don’t laugh at this kind of stuff, you’ll just wind up going bald from pulling your hair out…

Obama’s teleprompter played a pretty mean prank on both Obama & the Irish Prime Minister.  Maybe it had over indulged during the St. Patrick’s Day party or something…  yea, that’s it!  The teleprompter was drunk!

As the Irish Taoiseach delivered his St Patrick’s Day speech at a White House dinner party, it emerged that he was accidentally reading off the teleprompter one made by President Obama only minutes earlier.

“We begin by welcoming today a strong friend of the United States,” he began and continued in that vein for about 20 seconds before – realising he was experiencing more than the usual case of déjà vu – he looked back at the US President and said: “That’s your speech!”

On this occasion, as a laughing Mr Obama returned to the podium, the script was belatedly switched over to the Taoiseach’s text – leaving Mr Obama inadvertently thanking himself for inviting everyone, to further laughter. “First, I’d like to say thank you to President Obama!” the President said.

You know, on a more serious note, the Irish PM can’t be happy about being made a fool of at the White House.  Yet another Ally offended.  And everyone across the pond has noticed that Obama never goes anywhere without his teleprompter.  The Brits are even calling him the “Teleprompter President.”

Mr Obama is becoming known as the ‘teleprompter president’ for his excessive use of the prompting screens, which retract when speeches are finished.

Although used for more than half a century, the device was previously employed mainly for set-piece speeches. The current President, however, often uses them for making small introductory statements at the beginning of press conferences.(source)

But Rush Limbaugh just had me laughing my butt off this afternoon when he offered to interview the teleprompter, and asked if the teleprompter was dating anyone, Mac or PC?  Luv it! (source)
