Obama: The Teleprompter or the President?

President Obama delivers a wizbang of a speech but now rarely if ever speaks directly to an audience without the comfort of a friendly teleprompter. This fact has been widely reported, but now one must wonder if the Teleprompter isn't running things and Obama merely a "clean and articulate" empty suit reading whatever The Teleprompter says.

Now we have him actually doing just that.

Obama Thanks Himself, Irish PM Repeats Speech in Teleprompter Meltdown

Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen reads word for word a speech that Obama had just read from a teleprompter, while the president apparently thanked himself for the invitation.

WASHINGTON — Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen was just a few paragraphs into an address at a St. Patrick’s Day celebration at the White House when he realized something sounded way too familiar. Turns out, he was repeating the speech President Barack Obama had just given.

Cowen was set to speak twice at the White House on Tuesday night because there were two different parties going on at the executive mansion. No matter — he would give the same speech to the two different audiences.

But Cowen was 20 seconds into his second address when it dawned on him that he was giving word for word the speech that Obama had just read from the same teleprompter.

Cowen stopped and looked back at the president to say, “That’s your speech.”

Obama laughed and returned to the podium to offer what turned out to have been Cowen’s remarks loaded into the Teleprompter.

In doing so, President Obama thanked President Obama for inviting everyone over.

I know Obama is Irish and all, so maybe he had a few too many green beers or something... if not then we need to find out who is running The Teleprompter and we will find out who is running the country into disaster.
