Obama – “I have a gift” ok well my teleprompter has a gift! Update: Teleprompter responds!

As I read the news today I read these 2 articles in succession and can’t help but laugh.

In this article Harry Reid recounts an interaction where Obama tells him that he has a gift for public speaking.

“‘That speech was phenomenal, Barack,’ I told him. And I will never forget his response. Without the barest hint of braggadocio or conceit, and with what I would describe as deep humility, he said quietly: ‘I have a gift, Harry.'”

And the very next thing that I read is this story where Barack’s teleprompter breaks and he gets all screwed up.


Update (Jim): OK … you knew it had to happen … Obama’s teleprompter has responded to yesterday’s embarrassment. He should be ashamed. Ha!

Here is a transcript of our conversation today:

Big Guy: “In addition to John – sorry, the – I just noticed I jumped the gun here.” 

TOTUS: “What? Why are you looking at those file cards? Who gave you those file cards? Ah crap.”
Big Guy: “Go ahead. Move it up. 

TOTUS: “WT*! I am moving it up. When we get back to the office, we need to have a sit down …”

Read it all. Priceless.

    That IS funny – "my telepromter has a gift."  However, Harry didn't finish the sentence, what Barak really said was "I have a gift, Harry, for the Prime Minister of England.  A few old dvd's Michelle found when we were cleaning out in Chicago… Can't wait to see how he reacts to being insulted – plus, he's practically blind which will add injury to insult!  It's so much fun being President."

    Yeah, and Howdy Doody had a gift too: to say and do anything his owner made him say while manipulating him.

    What time is it kids?  It's Howdy Obama time, kids!!  (Does that make Biden Clarabelle the Cow?…..)
