Oh, Oh! The President left home without his teleprompter again. When are his handlers going to learn that he's nothing without it? The message to President Obama, after his appearance on the NBC's Tonight Show with Jay Leno, should be, "Don't quit your day job."
Taking the major career risk of leaving home without his beloved teleprompter, the President, pulling off his best gaffe-master Joe Biden impersonation, jokingly compared his recent 129 bowling score to the ability of a Special Olympics athlete. Although the public viewing hasn't been aired, several sources are reporting that the President was quoted as saying that his bowling score was, "like the Special Olympics or something."
It would not surprise me in the least, if that portion of the interview is removed from the actual airing, at the request of the White House. The media is still in the midst of, what long-time news-guy, Bernie Goldberg, termed "A Slobbering Love Affair." I'm also wondering if the mainstream media will be in an uproar over the insensitive comment. Can you imagine if Bush, not known for his eloquence, said such a crass remark? The media would be out for blood!
This comment, along with the President's conversation with "Joe the Plumber," show why the president should not be allowed to leave home without his first love....his teleprompter. Maybe he could do commercials for the manufacturer of the devise, after his first term expires, in which he says, "The Teleprompter...Don't leave home without it!"
This is another "change" that you voted for, America. It seems to me that the President, who has reiterated repeatedly that we are in a "crisis," mirroring, "The Great Depression," should have more important national business to conduct than appearing on variety talk shows and studying his NCAA basketball brackets. Is this a good use of his time when the country is in such dire straits?
And besides, I thought Vice President Joe Biden was the one with foot-in-mouth disease.
