President Obama was doing a joint press conference with Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen, and they had a bit of a mishap.  Sky News reports:

Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen was just a few paragraphs into an address in Washington when he realised it all sounded a bit too familiar.

It was. He was repeating the speech President Barack Obama had just read from the same teleprompter.

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.

Could you imagine if this was President Bush who had done this?

  1. Why is it that this isn’t making American newspapers?

    I know this is rhetorical, but I'm still going to respond: because it's Obama; it's a Democract; and it's not Bush–in that order.

  2. I have to completely echo ECM….

    Ugh!

    The media is in love with Obama and they have been for months leading up to the election.

    Besides, if everyone thinks he's the messiah, then he can do no wrong…right?
