TOTUS Releases Exerpts From Tonights Script

The Teleprompter Of The United States (TOTUS) has released  the following excerpts of what it will be providing for the POTUS to read tonight:

Obama will tell Americans: “[W]e’ve put in place a comprehensive strategy designed to attack this crisis on all fronts. It’s a strategy to create jobs, to help responsible homeowners, to re-start lending, and to grow our economy over the long-term. And we are beginning to see signs of progress.”

“The budget I submitted to Congress will build our economic recovery on a stronger foundation, so that we do not face another crisis like this ten or twenty years from now. We invest in the renewable sources of energy that will lead to new jobs, new businesses, and less dependence on foreign oil. We invest in our schools and our teachers so that our children have the skills they need to compete with any workers in the world. We invest in reform that will bring down the cost of health care for families, businesses, and our government. And in this budget, we have made the tough choices necessary to cut our deficit in half by the end of my first term – even under the most pessimistic estimates.

“At the end of the day, the best way to bring our deficit down in the long run is not with a budget that continues the very same policies that have led to a narrow prosperity and massive debt. It’s with a budget that leads to broad economic growth by moving from an era of borrow and spend to one where we save and invest.

“That’s what clean energy jobs and businesses will do. That’s what a highly-skilled workforce will do. That’s what an efficient health care system that controls costs and entitlements like Medicare and Medicaid will do. That’s why this budget is inseparable from this recovery – because it is what lays the foundation for a secure and lasting prosperity.

“We will recover from this recession. But it will take time, it will take patience, and it will take an understanding that when we all work together; when each of us looks beyond our own short-term interests to the wider set of obligations we have to each other – that’s when we succeed. That’s when we prosper. And that’s what is needed right now. So let us look toward the future with a renewed sense of common purpose, a renewed determination, and most importantly, a renewed confidence that a better day will come.”

That’s pretty much the propaganda nut of it.

You’re excused if you’d rather spend your time doing useful things and wait until TOTUS releases the script. Frankly, rather than watching Obama, I’d much rather be watching Steve Wosniak on “Dancing With The Stars” or, better yet, getting a root canal.

  • It’s with a budget that leads to broad economic growth by moving from an era of borrow and spend to one where we save and invest.

    The disconnect is absolutely maddening. I don’t know what’s worse: the fact that he flat out lies or that millions of my fellow Americans buy it.

  • I just can’t watch any more.  There is not enough of my preferred drink in the state of Illinois for me to NOT be driven mad by this fiasco.

    We are fraking doomed, and there doesn’t seem to be anything we can do about it…

  • Shorter Obamatuer:

    “It’s not my faut”
    “I won”
    “These problems are hard”
    *Flash winning grin”

    Why bother with the presser anymore?

  • Is it true that Obama’s teleprompter has Obama listed as a dependant on its’ tax returns?

  • Even shorter Mr. McQuain:  ODS. 

  • Anybody else creeped out by Wosniak’s grin, or is it just me?

  • Obama gave a speech last night???  I thought that was an old speech.  Mistakenly caught the last few minutes.   “Persistence” Wondering what President Obama has been reading lately.

    “Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race” – Calvin Coolidge

    We watched “Chuck” from Monday night.  Far more entertaining and far less aggravating.

    Some other quotes from Coolidge that P. Obama should keep in his head:

    “Don’t expect to build up the weak by pulling down the strong”
    “All growth depends upon activity. There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work.”
    “We cannot do everything at once, but we can do something at once.”
    “Duty is not collective; it is personal”
    “Ultimately property rights and personal rights are the same thing.”
    “There is no dignity quite so impressive, and no one independence quite so important, as living within your means”
