Obama’s Teleprompter Strikes Again



Text  



Via HotAir’s headlines, here’s a pretty funny video of the President botching the pronunciation of the word “Orion” three times while speaking about Orion Energy Systems in Wisconsin. Here’s the local write-up:

All terrific press for Orion, except that Obama kept pronouncing the company’s name wrong, calling it OAR-ee-on.

After finishing his remarks and talking with a few people, the president returned to the microphone and said his prepared remarks led him to pronounce the firm’s name wrong.

“I suspect this is Or-EYE-on as opposed to OAR-ee-on. Just wanted to make sure that when I’m giving you a plug, that we’ve got the right plug. It’s Or-EYE-on.”

Got that? “the president returned to the microphone and said his prepared remarks led him to pronounce the firm’s name wrong.” I think he just blamed the teleprompter.
