Looking through TOTUS


Filed Under General on Mar 26 

In all my years of public speaking I have yet to use a TelePrompTer. I understand basically how they work – the speaker can see the text of his speech while the audience can see through the glass unobstructed. Quite the gift for those who lack the ability to talk coherently without the need for notes.

In his most recent prime-time press party, Obama graduated from the normal two-tiered TelePrompTer to a giant Obamatron.


As has been previously mentioned, Obama’s TelePrompTer has its own blog and prefers to be referred to as TOTUS (TelePrompTer Of The United States).

So, here’s a good question: If you put Team Obama’s trillion dollar burgeoning budget and look at it through the rose-tinted TOTUS, what do you see?


I’ll tell you what I see – an ocean of red ink that makes Madoff’s ponzi scheme look like a two-bit check kiting run by a few thugs on a street corner.


All this coming from a guy who pledged to restore “fiscal responsibility” to Washington. Who would have thought we’d look back fondly on W’s measly deficits and consider them tame in comparison.
