WASHINGTON (July 14) -- President Barack Obama had just started a spirited defense of his economic stimulus plan on Monday when one of his teleprompter screens came loose, crashed to the floor and shattered into pieces.
The gadget's fall surprised Obama, who uses a teleprompter during most speeches and even brief remarks. The glass plate displaying his speech hit the floor in the auditorium of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, a massive building within the White House compound.
Editor Rozek’s Notes:…Obama is in the middle of a “spirited defense of his economic stimulus plan” as the teleprompter crashes to the floor…he looks at it shattered in pieces and continues: “and this is the absolute dumbest plan I’ve ever had. This socialist nation that I’m working hard to create has completely proven that I’m a complete idiot! Thank you all for coming out…and by the way…we need to remove good health care from people who already have it and level the playing field by providing really bad health coverage for all! On my honor, I will try, in liberty and Justice reverse racist Sotomayor for all…Amen…Power to the people!…under God, indivisible…abortions for everyone! Don’t my wife’s arms look great?"
