In Korea, Roskam pokes fun at Obama for teleprompters

Waiting with troops in Korea before a Veterans Day rally, Rep. Peter Roskam (R-Ill.) took a little shot at President Obama for his fondness for using teleprompters. 

"The Teleprompters arrived safely, awaiting POTUS," he tweeted, along with a picture (below). 

Roskam is in Korea amid Obama's visit and the G-20 summit to lobby for the U.S.-South Korea Free Trade Agreement, now declared dead in the water.

He let up on Obama later on in another tweet.

"Good speech by President Obama honoring Korean War vets, reaffirms US commitment to freedom in Kore," he wrote. 

The Illinois Republican also attended the 60th anniversary ceremony for the Korean War and visited the demilitarized zone this week after arriving Tuesday in Seoul.
