Obama tongue-tied w/out teleprompter; tells it to speed-up!

President Obama’s speech at the National Academy of Sciences Monday morning hit a brief snag when Obama got ahead of his script.

Laying his plan for a President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, Obama began to name the members of PCAST listed in his prepared remarks – before realizing he’d already introduced them, earlier in his speech.

“In addition to John – sorry, the – I just noticed I jumped the gun here,” Obama said, pausing for several seconds as he looked at the prompter. “Go ahead. Move it up. I had already introduced all you guys.”

The audience, which gave the president a warm reception, responded with a quiet laugh.

Right wing obsessed with Obama's teleprompter. Right. Got it. Who gives a shit.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Usually they have a written script in addition to the TP, just in case.

That said, he did recognize the problem and otherwise speaks much better than his predecessorial eloquenter when opinerificating with or without a telepromotion device.

^ Speaking of which. Did that issue ever get positively resolved or just swept under the rug? I'm sure he was born here, but where is the proof positive? Isn't that required? Was he given a pass on his security clearance? Anyone who has clearance with the DOD or DOE knows how they would never let us skate.

Just an innocent little question FTL. Maybe you could have your ACLU buddies check in on this, would ya?

Yes it was answered. Just not to the level of acceptance of the rightwing blogsphere. Apparently there was no placenta stain on an American flag for conclusive DNA testing that pleased the grassy knoll gang.

I have an ultra-sound of the Obama fetus with a picture of Wakiki in the background, if you need it. Vince Foster is seen waving a communist flag on the beach. The fetus-in-chief is seen gripping a small teleprompter in the womb, that's how you know it is him.
