It's official, the Teleprompter of the United States has its own blog hosted by Google's Blogger service at http://baracksteleprompter.blogspot.com. We'll keep you updated if the site moves to its own domain. Obama's addiction to his teleprompter, which reportedly travels everywhere with him has inspired many similar parody sites and blogs. Even the Huffington Post, a notoriously liberal news outlet has referred to it as a crutch. Others have been less kind, some referring to Obama as nothing "more than a TV anchor reading a script." According to Politico's Carol E. Lee, " no other president has used one so consistently and at so many events, large and small." His dependance on the devices has cast doubt on his reputation as a brilliant orator, and not without reason. Teleprompter malfunctions have produced a growing stockpile of embarrassing footage and broken speech. Most recently, Obama is reported to have thanked himself during a St. Patrick's Day dinner party when he began reading from Irish PM Brian Cowen's speech. Footage from the event has not been released.
