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.
