WASHINGTON – Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen was just a few paragraphs into an address at a St. Patrick’s Day celebration at the White House when he realized something sounded way too familiar. Turns out, he was repeating the speech President Barack Obama had just given. . . .
…Cowen was 20 seconds into his second address when it dawned on him that he was giving word for word the speech that Obama had just read from the same teleprompter.
Cowen stopped and looked back at the president to say, “That’s your speech.”
Heres the best part: After the mistake Obama took to the podium again…and promptly thanked himself for inviting everyone to the White House:
Obama laughed and returned to the podium to offer what might have been Cowen’s remarks. In doing so, President Obama thanked President Obama for inviting everyone over.
And just think, this clown is in charge of the whole damn country.
