    Talking Teleprompter tells Obama to thank himself

    Obama should change his name to Ron Burgundy.

    Someone please find this video.

    A teleprompt blunder has led to Barack Obama thanking himself in a speech at the White House in a St Patrick's Day celebration.

    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.

    It was. 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.

    Mr Obama is an accomplished orator but is becoming known in America as the "teleprompt president" over his reliance on the machine when he gives a speech.

    He has a separate caravan that follows him around full of teleprompters, just for such an incident.

    Looks like the TOTUS was overworked and decided to off itself on national television.
