President Obama is in California and apparently doesn't know the names of his staffers. When someone forgot to place Obama's remarks on the podium as the President walked up to speak, this happened:

Not only did the President not have teleprompter, his aides forgot his speech.

“My remarks are not sitting here,” the President declared awkwardly.  “I’m uhhh….people….oh goodness….uhhhh...folks are sweating back there right now.”

President Obama, who’s often mocked for an over-reliance on scripts, shifted uncomfortably smiling for several moments buying time. An aide sprinted out with a hard copy of the speech, tripping at one point, adding to the drama.


Just another manic Friday in the Obama administration.
