White House Communications Van Stolen, Then Recovered | But Why Does President Barack Obama Need a Telepromter to Say "God Bless You...and God Bless the United States of America" ...Hmm?


Lots has changed since Barack Obama, our local political rockstar here in the Chicago area, became President of the United States and the chief dude in charge of most of what happens in the world.

However, one thing that has particularly been puzzling is his use of the teleprompter.  We get the basics...the President of the United States needs to be articulate and clear in his message when he speaks, but does he really need a teleprompter for everything, even this?

"God Bless You...and God Bless the United States of America."

Really?

Barack Obama, do you need a teleprompter to say something that should either come natural or not at all?

Meanwhile, the White House Communications Van was stolen the other day, but eventually showed up in a Virginia parking lot at a Holiday Inn Express.  It contained the famed teleprompter, audio equipment and those Presidential Seals you see at podiums and staged photo ops.

Because the White House Communications Agency is technically a military unit (yes, really), the Defense Information Systems Agency (yes, you pay for that, too), is conducting an investigation on the stolen communications van and its high-value occupant, the teleprompter.

Thanks to the recovery, President Obama can now proceed with an event on his failing jobs bill in Virginia now that the teleprompter and equipment are back.

Maybe whoever took it decided the President needed it more.

However, if leadership depends on a teleprompter and you need it to say "God Bless You..." then pretty much anyone could be President.  You can give a speech and sound Presidential, too.

After the speech, if anyone asks how you did it, don't say it's because of the teleprompter.

Just say you stayed at a Holiday Inn Express.

Hilarious. Maybe the White House should have their teleprompter answer questions at press conference instead of Obama or Carney.

Talk about lame, Openline. Really slow day, huh? Wow, what breaking news. The President uses a teleprompter -- just like all his predecessors since the dang things were invented.

OpenLine is lame. and 7:09 is a liar. Or maybe just delusional. This whole thing is BS. The teleprompter shows the entire script of the President's speech -- including the closing words. You're all acting like those are the only things on the prompter. Get a life.

He surrounds himself with terrorists, socialists, and and anti- white ministers. He is a disgrace and 8:32 is probably a stupid n166ur 2. Wake up before we turn into Europe.

This bafoon, OBAMA now has the UNEMPLOYMENT rate in Illinois at 10%. I thought it would not go above 8 if we spent all the TRILLIONS of our decendents future incomes. What a JERK.

The real disgrace is that the mutt in the White House wasn't properly vetted to be in there in the first place. When someone has to use an alias to defraud a college to get aid should have been the first clue. Using a Social Security number that doesn't pass E-verify is another, then surrounds himself with a known terrorist, socialists, billionaire foreigner who hates America, and a preacher who is a racial radical should have been enough, but look at the crap we're in. Don't even bring up what he's married to...
