President Obama admitted he went off the teleprompter tonight when he told students at the National Urban League in New Orleans to stop playing video games and watching “Real Housewives” in order to compete globally.
Pres Obama said the "hanging out/Real Housewives" crack were not part of his prepared remarks — "but I'm just saying."

“America says we will give you opportunity,” the president told the cheering crowd. “It’s a two-way street — you have got to earn success.”
Hmm … what was that thing Obama recently said about success when he went off teleprompter in Roanoke, Va.?
@markknoller Amer. kids to Pres Obama: "Why not just hang out and watch Real Housewives? Won't someone else just build our success for us?"

Obama to kids: Stop "hanging out" and study hard. Obama to adults: Smarts and hard work don't count for much.

First Obama picking on small business owners and now students playing video games and watching Real Housewives. Hmm I wonder who's next?

Obama added that students in Beijing and Bangalore aren’t “gettin’ over.”
Ready to be embarrassed–what does "gettin' over" mean? http://t.co/kd7Fhs9J
