As President Obama approached the podium this afternoon to deliver a speech, he quickly realized his prepared remarks were not there.

“I think there’s only one problem, and that is that my remarks are not sitting here,” he said as the crowd chuckled.

“People?” Obama said, looking offstage to his staff.

“You know things on a Friday afternoon – things get a little challenged,” he added. “People? Oh goodness.”

As an aide ran out with the sheets of paper, Obama joked, “Folks are sweating back there, right now.”
