Barack's Blooper

President Obama addressed the National Academy of Science today- a speech about improving science education and college graduation rates. I wonder if they teach you how to speak without a teleprompter in front of you at all times at Haw-vahd.

Will late-night TV ever pick up on how scripted this guy is?

TOTUS (The Official Teleprompter of the United States) tells his side of what happened today.

Saw this, too. What an idiot!

Just shows how much of an amateur he is when he has to interact with live people versus his teleprompter like the recent international tour where he was clueless and embarrassing with Chavez, Ortega, Castro.

How about the "fly by" over NYC yesterday? How dumb was that move?

Wonder how much it cost the taxpayers?

A heck of a lot more than it would of cost to "computer generate" the same thing.

What a bunch of bafoons.

Maybe he'll stop thinking he's too cool/environmental to have a printed copy of his speeches on the podium in front of him. Of course, yeah, flying that beast of a plane over NYC for a photo-op must have had a large carbon footprint. Of course, PR is real, and CO2 as pollution isn't, so maybe he knows what he's doing. Should have probably alerted the people of the fly-by, however (if he couldn't do some photoshopping, which I agree would have been cheaper).
