My goodness, even TOTUS is being threatened by layoffs these days. But on the bright side, we don’t see many stories about Obama being concerned with reducing dependency, but this is one of them, so soak it up.

From The Hill:

President Obama is weaning himself off his teleprompter.

At recent campaign events in Pennsylvania, Virginia and again Monday in Ohio, Obama spoke to crowds in high school gymnasiums and at crowded outdoor events without his teleprompter, instead using written notes.

The difference is dramatic. Instead of turning in his characteristic manner from right to left and back again, reading from the two sloping, clear-plastic planes of his teleprompter, Obama has glanced down at pages in a binder on his podium.

Team Obama thinks the switch, or partial switch — the president is not giving up the teleprompter entirely — will help him better connect with voters.

Obama has trouble connecting with voters because he helped rush along the economic demise of the U.S., not because he was reading everything he said from a couple of sheets of plexiglass. But if he thinks not reading off a teleprompter will make people think the jobs picture isn’t as bleak as it is, so be it.

See you in the unemployment line, TOTUS.

    He must have been off script when he made the speech about how business owners didn't create their businesses without the gubmint- straight out of Karl Marx University.

    Unfortunately ObB, that's very much 'on' script. If you've never encountered the Leftist argument fact to face; evidently even that road ( that's been in front of your house for the last oh… 150 years? ) the mailbox at the end of the road, yellow paint on curbs, city parks to museums, libraries and opera houses The Government provides are all 'contributors' or 'enablers' of success.

    Based on this.., we should ALL be rich! I know it's ridonkulous, but this is how these people 'think'.

    He doesn't want to have to look to the right anymore. He's much more comfortable looking to the left.

  4. SignPainterGuy on July 17th, 2012 6:55 pm

    Which makes his anti-NASCAR bias such a mystery !

  5. SignPainterGuy on July 17th, 2012 6:57 pm

    I predict a TOTUS full-time rehire in the very near future; Zero can`t answer the phone without TOTUS ! (H/T: "Hitler reacts")

  6. jeffythequick on July 17th, 2012 7:40 pm

    He'll be off script more now?

    I don't think Orville Redenbacher will have enough popcorn for this show…

    I think Biden and PBo should have a contest.

  7. Marshall_Will on July 17th, 2012 7:47 pm

    Yeah, poor Orville, he already looks like he's had his fingrers worked to the bone. Is there a NEW Hitler reacts? If so, don't be lean, make w/ the MEAN!

    There has to be utter CHAOS in the Oblamer camp right now. Better believe He doesn't reserve finger pointing and baseless BLAME for His enemies. In fact, if you aren't bringing him a fatted calf -daily- you ARE on his enemies list.

    I'm calling for a major shake-up any day now.

    Good news to Obama!

    Classy and nice girl, Sarah Silverman is willing to do what it takes to get some money to Obama:

    WARNING (IM)MATURE CONTENT IN THIS LINK (It goes to the Blaze Story)

    Reminds me of the old joke where a guy offers a girl a million dollars to sleep with him, then after she enthusiastically says, "yes," he offers her a dollar. When she protests, saying, "I'm not a whore!" he replies, "We've already established that. We're just negotiating a price now."

    I'm guessing no one on team Obama has told him he cant take the notebooks into the debates anymore than he could take the teleprompter.

  10. Truesoldier__ on July 17th, 2012 9:52 pm

    O/T…..but this is just too good not to mock:

    In a tweet sent out Sunday, the campaign showed President Obama and Vice President Biden high-fiving under the headline "Dynamic Duo."

    I can imagine a photoshop job of Obama/Biden in the 70's Batman/Robin tights with them punching bad guys with shirts on that are labeled "jobs" and the "economy" with huge "POW" and "BAM" coming off of the hits.

  11. Truesoldier__ on July 17th, 2012 9:54 pm

    I would love to see Silverman get arrested for prostitution. They have the evidence of it in her own words.

  12. jeffythequick on July 17th, 2012 10:52 pm

    Even more good news… Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) is still alive!

    Bad news… I guess I won't be watching Star Wars anymore…

  13. ChapBix on July 17th, 2012 11:42 pm

    "See you in the unemployment line, TOTUS."

    To be followed soon after by POTUS Obama.

  14. Truesoldier__ on July 17th, 2012 11:45 pm

    Mark Hamill is hoping that if he jumps on the Obama bandwagon it may lead him back to his Hollywood Haydays days of late 70's and early 80's….

  15. Obama bin Biden on July 18th, 2012 10:58 am

    Maybe because there aren't enough Kenyans in the sport?

  16. jeffythequick on July 18th, 2012 11:12 am

    When he starred in Corvette Summer?

  17. Marshall_Will on July 18th, 2012 12:30 pm

    Well, we talked about making life so miserable for Progmoters they finally opt for the quiet life? The 'video' is the brainchild of none other than Soros' son Alexandar. Doing his level best to look 'tough'.

    Or at least as tough as anyone born w/ a silver cokespoon can look? As for me, here's my $100 bucks Mitt -not- to have s_x w/ Silverman. Spend it wisely…

  18. SignPainterGuy on July 18th, 2012 3:33 pm

    Perhaps ! I wonder if Zero even knows a black man has been and is near the top again in the running for another Championship in Formula 1 ? It`s European in origin and travels much of the world !
