Video: Bizyonos as Obama Tells Teleprompter – Speed Up!


obama3[Video below.] President Barack Obama’s speech at the National Academy of Sciences this 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.

Embarrassing, huh?

  1. he’s an actor, that’s all. Obviously he has no clue what he is talking about, if he can say ‘in addition to John’, with the same gusto and hand motions as what he was saying a second before.

  2. avtually his predecessor bush had no clue what he was tlaking about and was so bad at even reading the prompter he would put punctuation in the wrong place and start and stop sentence fragments like he had no clue what he was saying. at least obama can read his prepared statements and all he did was tell the person who was operating the prompter to speed it up.
    until 2 months ago he had never used it so everyone needs and adjustment to get used to it.
    again this is much a do about nothing, except people in the media who are into making stories out of nothing and narishkeit, especially those loyal to a dummy who for 8 years brought us shame with his poor speech and intellectually challenged brain (due alchool abuse). at least obama can READ and SPEAK coherently.

  3. Hahaha, sorry, but I burst out laughing upon reading your comment. Are you the only one not yet informed that Obama the brilliant relies on the teleprompter in a way no president has before? Whether you agree with his “policies” (contrived by his teleprompter? :)) or not, this kind of silliness is the stuff of comedy shows, regardless of politics.

  4. ‘reading is fundamental’
    i don’t know where you get your info from, but actually Bush used the teleprompter only for major speeches like the State of the Union Address, unlike Obama who uses it every time he speaks. And he always used it, even on the campaign trail. Some people are just so blinded by him, it’s unbelievable!

  5. you guys have no respect…the president has to go around speaking constantly, and he is a human being, and I admire the way he handled the situation

  6. We’re trying, scouts honor. It’s so hard, though, when the giggles take over in scenes like this. If at first you don’t succeed…

  7. Nevermind that obama is the most technologically advanced pres in the most technologically advanced time ie the timing of his presidency dictates reliance on more technologoy than anyone before, the fact remains that his usage of the telepromtper for speeches is no more usage than the president who did so just a few months before he took office. again it is just a silly thing played by the media and forced by conservative partisans to show some feigned dificiency in the president and especially since bush had a speech dificiency and obama was promoted for so long as being extemporaneous and charismatic which he was for a long time without a prompter.

  8. Bac, why do you think Bush was always squinting? you seriously think he never used a teleprompter? go to any internet video of any conference or speech he ever gave, and tell me what those things are if on your planet they arent teleprompters

  9. Bac, you are the one who is blind. Again, go look at the campaign trail. no candidate especially when they running from town hall to town hall to stump to stump has the time to even set up prompters at every venue … not to mention how do you propose they use it while interncting with the crowds at those town halls and walking around and pacing on the stage? seriously, you are making stuff up.

  10. Reading is fund., you are an idiot, plain and simple. For you to be swept in the hype of this Marxist President is beyond comprehension. Obama is a fake phony fraud and has no business running the country.

  11. ‘Obama’s reliance on the teleprompter is unusual — not only because he is famous for his oratory, but because no other president has used one so consistently and at so many events, large and small.’

    (CNN) — It appears Barack Obama’s teleprompter is hitting the campaign trail.

    The Democratic presidential nominee has never tried to hide the fact he delivers speeches off the device, though normally he doesn’t use one at standard campaign rallies and town hall events.

    But the Illinois senator used a teleprompter at both his Colorado events Monday — making for a particularly peculiar scene in Pueblo, where the prompter was set up in the middle of what is normally a rodeo ring.

  12. Fishel, i did not vote for him, nor am i a loyal supporter. That said, Bush was by no means a decent president at all. Keeping an honest open mind, it is far to early to make such an assessment for Obama. Let us take care to worry about actual issues and not this type of nonsense.

  13. When Bush was in the White House he kashered the kitchen for a function. Other presidents, even the rasha Jimmy Carter, brought in food from kosher caterers for their Jewish guests. Obama made a seder for Jewish staffers,yet he didn’t bother to bring in kosher food. Instead, he had the White House chefs prepare the food in the White House’s treif, and certainly not Pesachdik, kitchen. What does that tell you? Everything he does is for show.
    Bush was our friend. He knew to be tough on terrorists. He didn’t bow to the Saudi King or give in to the “axis of evil”.
    I wonder how many of Obama’s loyal Black supporters realize that every word coming out of his mouth is written by a White guy.
    Does he use a teleprompter when he’s talking to his family around the breakfast table? Or, does he only use it to fake out the country and make them think he’s intelligent?
    The man’s incompetent and it has nothing to do with the color of his skin. There are plenty of other African Americans who are more qualified and would do the job better than he’s doing it.
