A laughing Mr Obama returned to the podium to take over but it seems the script had finally been switched and the US president ended up thanking himself for inviting everyone to the party.

Mr Obama is an accomplished orator but is becoming known in America as the "teleprompt president" over his reliance on the machine when he gives a speech.

He's gonna save the world.

Me too...if only they used wireless and we had the codes.

I'd throw in a "let me be perfectly clear about being perfectly clear".

As he holds his forefinger against his thumb. What's up with that? He looks like he's feeding a dog or something.

If I really cared...I'd start researching all the speeches/statements Obama has made in all 57 states and find some gems for you.
