When Will Obama Seek Help

for His teleprompter dependency?

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.

Laura Ingraham wondered on her show yesterday if he gets special massages to treat his Tennis Match Neck.


JammieWearingFool posits the rhetorical question:

Imagine if George W. Bush had such a crutch and pulled a monster gaffe like this. It would be played 24/7 on television until the end of time.

For some strange reason, the networks refuse to release video of this great moment in hilarity.

Update, March 26, 2009

It turns out that there are two very good reasons why the networks did not release any video. The first is that only print pool reporters were allowed, so there was no video to release. The second is that the reported gaffe never happened.

“Then it was Cowen’s turn, and he was in for a surprise. ‘We begin by welcoming today a strong friend of the United States,’ he said–then stopped in surprise as he realized he was reading President Obama’s speech off the teleprompter. ‘Why don’t these things work for me?’ he asked, as the crowd roared. ‘Thank you for having us. Who said these things were idiot-proof?’ Then he got his bearings and gave the same talk that he delivered in the East Room.  When he ended, at 8:12, Obama stepped to the microphone and said, ‘First, I’d like to say thank you to President Obama…(much laughter). Happy Saint Patrick’s Day, everybody.’ Then we were escorted out.”

The Messiah and his faithful dog, Manfred, are gaffe machines. No need for anybody to invent moments that never were.
