“The president embarrassed America and showed the world just how stupid he really is last night.”
That’s how the media would have reported last night’s White House screw-up if President Bush were still in office. But we doubt that President Obama will receive the same harsh treatment.
Here’s what happened:
Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen was giving a speech when he realized he was repeating the same words President Obama had just read from the same teleprompter. Cowen stopped, turned to the president and said, “That’s your speech.”
Obama laughed. Oh, how he laughed. It was the laugh of a man who was thinking, “Damn, I’m glad that wasn’t me.”
Then he compounded the problem by walking up to the podium, staring into his trusty teleprompter and giving Cowen’s remarks instead of his own.
In the words of Fox News, “President Obama thanked President Obama for inviting everyone over.”
Joe Biden was once busted for stealing a British politician’s speech. But at least he was smart enough not do it right in front of the guy.
