Austerity Means... Sharing Your Teleprompter

Tyler Durden's picture

When it comes to austerity in Europe, it appears that no costs are too big or too small. That goes for sharing teleprompters as well. Compare and contrast the latest remarks by Barack O'Bama (or Obama, following the president's prompt departure out of Moneygall on seasonally unadjusted volcanic ash concens) and Enda Kenny...

So who wrote Enda's speech? by JustinMacTDFM

Hey...speeches are expensive.  They need to be rationed now.

The one thing politicians have always had is plenty of cheap words. Plenty.

Cheap words? Have you seen how much former presidents and politicians get for speeches at college campuses and such?

But then again I'm valuing their words in fiat denominations. On the Gold and Silver scale... welll....... now we're talking about something a little different.

I hope he makes millions with his post presidency teleprompter gigs... and soon.

Change doesn't stop here I hope!

Talk is cheap. With all those headlines at 0 hedge, which one is more effective than my BTFD calls?

Does that included the CO2 expelled by the politicians? Perhaps we can geo-sequester them?

+100 :)


Untill now, every daily speech of Obama has cost about 4 billion dollars!

(1 speech a day keeps sanity away!)

this shit is comical...what a joke of a president

Texas Gunslinger's picture

Obama made that speech in 2008 when he won the presidency.

The joke is Kenny, who clearly plagiarized it.

It's a shame that ZeroHedge confuses the time/place of the speech to make it look as if Obama spoke it in Ireland.

So are Volkswagen Phantoms - a car so ridiculous and over-priced, it was only sold in the US for a few years. Not even the dumbest group of consumers in the world would buy it.

Rabble-rousing rhetoric? Oh yeah.

Same speech - same message - same Government.

Now who's up for joining the rebel alliance?

I have a base on the moon of Endor - far out of the reaches of the NWO / Galactic Empire.

Endor is a secret contributor to the IMF

Those Ewoks look more like Iceland when they start monkeyhammering ATSTs. Do you have any idea how much replacing those things add to the Empire's budget?

You can't even build em on Tatooine, because the damn rebels will steal the plans and shove them up some poor droid's poop chute (<waaaaeeeeeeeee> indeed, R2)!

Endor rejected the IMF / Galactic empire when they discovered they would have to forgoe the next 30 years of nuts and berries.


The little fellas simply wouldn't stand for it.

Maybe reuseble teleprompters is part of the clean energy plan.

These phrases must have scored well with the multi-national focus group Goldman put together.

Sad. Someone pull the plug on this show already.

Come on. Can't you guys even manufacture your own issues?

Manthong's picture

Geez. Some plagiarizing speechwriter is going to be pounding the streets looking for a job soon.
But I am not disappointed because I don’t expect much from this crew.

Sometimes this shit just gets too weird for words.  One message, multiple messengers, the sheep will never notice.  Really, they won't.  You folks on this site are like the 1/2 of 1% (maybe) with your eyes and ears open.  The rest don't know and they don't want to know.  This is the (manufactured) reality of our time.

Nothing nefarious going on here Banzai7. Just like the accident that created the Reese's peanut butter cup, they simply bumped into each other and mixed up their note cards. No problem. It will all get sorted out when the Ministry of Truth and Information does it's next information scrub.

The thin skinned bitch Barry Soetoro doesn't like criticism...

Instead of wondering "What T F", I believe we need to start wondering "Who T F".  I've never been a Bilderberger believer, but this shit is getting scarier and scarier!

If you're impessed by that stupidity - the items of stupidity due later this year are going to blow you away!

The cracks are appearing across the globe...

Get in on the ground floor of the stupid bubble (if you don't think the RE bubble already qualified).
