    I saw this earlier today. I did not feel it was a big deal. He had no less than two backup teleprompters so the business of giving the illusion of running the country could continue.
    Thank you

    If you had to give 3 or 4 speeches a day on entirely different subjects, how would you do it?

    I would ask my banker masters to commission more body doubles to tell my lies. They should have at least 5 teleprompters each just in case they get the lies mixed up.

    Once they were all squared away I could whoop someones azz on pvp in WoW.

    Breaking news? You have got to be f-ing kidding me.
    When I said it was Breaking News I mean it was the headline at FOXNews.com. It was a legit Breaking News forum post by all the rules including the new one stickied I just bothered to read.

    Oops: Obama's Teleprompter Breaks Mid-Speech - Political News - FOXNews.com


    Other links where blogs/commentaries but not the Headline story.
    jfyi.

    Half the breaking news is about inanimate things breaking.

    What kind of speech? Business presentation, I could wing it, but it wouldn't be that easy.

    What is amusing is that Obama's likely relying upon the Teleprompter to avoid Obama-isms. He wants to avoid the flak that Bush took for misstating things left and right. But he's screwed either way. His detractors bash him on his steps taken to avoid making Obama-isms but also jump on anything he misstates. He cannot win this. The issue about the teleprompter has really nothing to do with the teleprompter.

    I really have to wonder how many of the detractors have ever done a lot of public speaking. You need some sort of note aid if you haven't had the chance to memorize it verbatim, or if you're speaking extraneously. I really doubt that they think that the President's time would be better spent memorizing speeches instead of running the damned country.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).
