Obama on Auto: Thank Me, Thank Me Very Much

Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen was just a few paragraphs into an address in Washington when he realised it all sounded a bit too familiar. He was repeating the speech President Barack Obama had just read from the same teleprompter.

Mr Cowen stopped, turned to the president and said: "That's your speech." A laughing Mr Obama returned to the podium to take over but it seems the script had finally been switched and the US president ended up thanking himself for inviting everyone to the party.

Is Obama some sort of programmed cyborg or what? During the campaign everyone ooohed and ahhhed over what a great speaker he is, and he becoming known as the "teleprompt president" over his reliance on the machine when he gives a speech.

Add one to the unemployment numbers. I'm such the teleprompter guy is looking for a new job
