Obama Tongue-Tied, as Treasured Teleprompter Goes Missing!

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

President Obama’s treasured teleprompter, podium, and other audio equipment was stolen in Richmond, VA. The thieves’ actions will leave Obama speechless.

When you, see President Obama speak, there is a large see-thru Teleprompter he reads prepared text from and we all know, when Obama tries to speak extemporaneously, he winds up getting into deep bandini as he did in Pennsylvania a few years ago when he said local residents “cling to guns or religion” to ease their poor economic prospects.

Obama sans a teleprompter is like Herman Cain trying to make a giggle-ha-ha about frying Mexicans on an electrified border fence. It’s not a pretty picture.

Sources tell local NBC12 News Obama’s equipment truck was later recovered in the parking lot of a Holiday Inn Express near the airport around 12:30p.m. Monday but alas, the teleprompter was nowhere to be found.

    I bet the damned thing turns up on eBay in a few months.

    Obama’s handlers had better have a back-up teleprompter or the results may be disastrous. He’s on another bus tour and with stops along the way, risks saying God-only-what if he goes off message.

  3. R.J. says:

    I’m almost with Joe on this one. The teleprompter will wind up on auction at Sotheby’s one day.

  4. Mets Fan says:

    People are tired of hearing Obama speak.

    I know I am. If I turn on TV and Obama’s yapping, I reach for the remote. The only thing I would want to hear this warmonger say is, “I’ve decided NOT to run for reelection.”

  5. Marburg says:

    Why does Obama need a teleprompter to tell lies about ending the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and how bombing Libya and invading Uganda is in any way protecting vital U.S. interests? He’s a Harvard educated law professor. He should be able to lie and eat a chicken wing at the same time.

  6. Brigadoon says:

    I wonder if this was a random truck theft or was someone tipped off and decided to have some fun at Obama’s expense? Anyway, I don’t think the teleprompter will ever show up on Ebay. Once it is listed for auction, someone would turn the seller in to the FBI. The seller would be arrested for having stolen property belonging to the White House.

    Well, it’s good to know the miscreants have a sense of humor.

  8. Gleneagle says:

    I’m a little confused here.

    I mean, the presidential podium and teleprompter isn’t under Secret Service protection? Someone can walk up to this truck and plant a bomb in the podium and harm or kill Obama. This is a major security flaw in the command chain.

    Can anyone imagine this happening to George W. Bush? I know he can’t read but his security detail was off the hook. Obama’s security team needs to step up their game or get a pink slip.

  9. Harry says:

    If Air Force One goes missing, then I’ll know we’ve got a genuine security problem.

  10. Walk on Socks says:

    Obama is a bit too reliant on that teleprompter and his speech writers.

    Every recent president from St. Reagan to Poppy Bush, Bill Clinton to the Shrub, spent hours and even days (in Clinton’s case), penning the speeches they delivered to crowds and more importantly, at major events like the State of the Union. Obama, relies heavily on White House writers and adds a thought or deletes a phrase, then up it goes on the teleprompter. Too much outsourcing.

    Of course, Obama is very lazy and is always in a hurry to get to the golf course.

  11. Adirondacky says:

    Where the hell was security? Was the teleprompter in a truck marked “President Obama” and the back door left unlocked? Pretty soon people will be wandering into the White House to sleep in the Lincoln bedroom. I’m all for an open society but there needs to be better security here.
