Another historic first for teleprompters

From American Thinker - Obama's Teleprompter Embarrassment in India:
The pathetic inability of Barack Obama to speak without the help of a teleprompter will be showcased to the world's most populous democracy when the president flees the electoral aftermath and decamps for India after the November election[]. Daily News and Analysis India reports:
A teleprompter will be in use for the first time in the Central Hall of Parliament when US President Barack Obama addresses MPs on November eight. [emphasis added]
Sigh. The leftist media's boy wonder can't give a 20 minute speech without his beloved teleprompter. And doing so in India, a country with a parliamentary tradition that expects its politicians to be able to speak articulately and extemporaneously. Even reading from a prepared printed text would have been less humiliating.

Of course, the Obummer will be partying in lavish Indian Raj style on the wallets of U.S. taxpayers:
To ensure fool-proof security, the President’s team has booked the entire the Taj Mahal Hotel, including 570 rooms, all banquets and restaurants. Since his security contingent and staff will comprise a huge number, 125 rooms at Taj President have also been booked, apart from 80 to 90 rooms each in Grand Hyatt and The Oberoi hotels. The NCPA, where the President is expected to meet representatives from the business community, has also been entirely booked. [emphasis added]

The officer said, “Obama’s contingent is huge. There are two jumbo jets coming along with Air Force One, which will be flanked by security jets. There will be 30 to 40 secret service agents, who will arrive before him. The President’s convoy has 45 cars, including the Lincoln Continental in which the President travels.”
Your tax dollars, hard at work. By the way, where are all the global warming wackos denouncing the enormous carbon footprint of ObooBoos' multiple jumbo jets and fighter escorts, the 45 vehicle motorcade, not to mention the U.S. naval and other U.S. assets being deployed as a result of his visit? As with Al "Crazed Sex Poodle" Gore, it is evidently ok to have a small city-sized energy footprint, so long as you have a "D" beside your party affiliation.
