Now it makes headlines when President Obama doesn't use his trademark Teleprompter.The 15 hardest words he ever uttered, apparently.
Wrapping up his three-day bus tour of North Carolina and Virginia today, the president stopped at a Chesterfield firehouse to promote his jobs bill. "It is great to be at Fire Station Number 9 with some of Virginia's finest," the president said without the use of his Teleprompter.
The address came two days after on of his Teleprompter and other event equipment were stolen from a federal truck parked at a Richmond, Virginia hotel.They're apparently so dense they don't realize it's a running gag.
White House spokesman Jay Carney, however, told the press pool that the size of the small event dictated that the Teleprompter be left behind, not this week's theft.
