Obama's teleprompter breaks during his speech

U.S. President Barack Obama had to improvise during one of his speeches on the economic stimulus plan on Monday (July 13) when one of his teleprompter screens came loose, crashed to the floor and shattered into pieces.
The loud fall surprised Obama, who uses a teleprompter during most of his speeches.

"Oh, goodness. I'm sorry about that, guys," Obama said as the audience broke into laughter.

The glass plate hit the floor in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, which is a large building within the White House compound. Obama went back to finish his remarks by apparently using his notes and another teleprompter screen that was in the room.
