A teleprompter will be in use for the first time in the Central Hall of Parliament when US President Barack Obama addresses MPs on November eight.
As per the tentative programme being worked out, the address by Obama, who once said that "America has its roots in the India of Mahatma Gandhi", would not be for more than 20 minutes.

The pathetic inability of Barack Obama to speak without the help of a teleprompter will be showcased to the world's most populous democracy when the president flees the electoral aftermath and decamps for India after the November electiona. Daily News and Analysis India reports:
Twenty minutes only, and Obama can't let go of what Vice President Mondale calls "idiot cards." The dependence is so complete that he overturns a parliamentary tradition in an important ally. This is a national humiliation for the United States, and will be a source of amusement the world over.
Hey; could be worse.
From what I understand, Barry uses two-idiot-boxes for speeches under an hour, and sometimes more than four if he's going to be pontificating for any longer. That way he can wander across the stage making like he's coming up with all his bullshit right off the cuff.
