Obama’s Teleprompter Gets Another Victim

Not content to lace only the President’s speeches with “umms”, “uhhs,” and “distractions”, Obama’s teleprompter has gone rogue, savagely striking out at a foreign statesman:

Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen was just a few paragraphs into an address at a St. Patrick’s Day celebration at the White House when he realized something sounded way too familiar. Turns out, he was repeating the speech President Barack Obama had just given. […]

But Cowen was 20 seconds into his second address when it dawned on him that he was giving word for word the speech that Obama had just read from the same teleprompter.

Ah, but the Chucklehead-in-Chief recovered gracefully:

Obama laughed and returned to the podium to offer what might have been Cowen’s remarks. In doing so, President Obama thanked President Obama for inviting everyone over. He then told the guests to try the veal and tip their waitresses.

This guy can’t catch a break with foreign leaders.
