Obama Has a Teleprompt Blunder on St Patrick's Day

It appears that Obama's reliance on the teleprompter (Berman Post: Obama And The TelePrompter) has led to a gaff.

The problem started when Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen realized that the speech he had just started giving was the one that Obama had just given. He turned to Obama and said "That's your speech". Obama then took over but apparently made it back to the podium just in time to have his speech switched out the Cowen's. Apparently not realizing the switch, Obama started reading from the teleprompter and proceeded to thank himself for inviting everyone to the St Patrick's Day party.
