Barack Obama is known for being well-spoken, at least when his teleprompter is working. Without it he’s like a deer in headlights, stuttering and seemingly lost in thought. But apparently even with the teleprompter he has trouble.
At a St. Patrick’s Day celebration at the White House, President Obama mistakenly read the Irish Prime Minister’s speech, opening with “First, I’d like to say thank you to President Obama.”
He actually thanked himself!
Obama blames the teleprompter for displaying the wrong speech, but TOTUS says he won’t “take the fall for communications missteps.” Who’s TOTUS? He’s the Teleprompter Of The United States. And he’s speaking out for the first time with his own blog (http://baracksteleprompter.blogspot.com). And TOTUS has A-L-O-T to say, and not just on the ‘Big Guy’ (TOTUS’ nickname for the president). Totus comments on everything from Rush Limbaugh’s prejudice towards teleprompters to not getting paid enough.
