Obama Misplaces His Teleprompter

Profound and deeply moving

Barack Obama gave what political commentators are calling his Gettysburg Address on Friday. 

Usually Obama says things during his speeches — which makes them terrible.


But this time around he didn't have his teleprompter.

Watch Obama's very short speech below. It's better than the other famous moment in American oratory, when Snooki said that George W. Bush was "pretty cute for an old man".

Happy "International Don't Be Like Obama" Day.
