Clint Eastwood did the “empty chair” thing about Obama, but as this new RNC video demonstrates, the real empty chairs in this administration belong to Obama’s speechwriters, who have obviously been phoning it in since 2008:

What’s funny is that The One still needs a teleprompter to repeat the same lines over and over again. Did George Lee Andrews still have to refer to the script during his 9,382nd performance as Monsieur AndrĂ© in Phantom of the Opera? Doubtful.

    Michelle pointed out aptly that Zero has earned and re-earned his nickname, "pRes. ReRun" !

    I have a strong feeling that even some of the dumbest dimmies are recognizing the de ja vu all over again sensation; and it ain`t tingling !

    Incredible.

    That needs to get some serious airtime.

    What is even more ironic to this story is the fact that the Dem's plan on having Carter give a speech via video to the convention. Nothing like reminding America about the last time we had a president that presided over such failure.

    "What’s funny is that The One still needs a teleprompter to repeat the same lines over and over again."

    What would be more fun would be to bribe the teleprompter operator to go take a break right before Obama's big convention speech and upload a speech that would actually tell the truth.

    The only question is would Obama pull a Ron Burgundy or would he try to just wing it? In either case it would be entertaining.

    "during his 9,382nd performance"

    Even Andrews admitted; "This happens to people. Jobs end." I can't see how such redundancy wouldn't be psychologically DAMAGING to someone? And I think that's what this video brings out.

    Not even O'Drama believes what he is saying. Great editing btw.

    If, heaven forbid, he does get reelected, he can keep using the same speeches, due to the mess that he inherited before he was elected in 2012!

  7. SignPainterGuy on September 4th, 2012 4:01 pm

    "He inherited this mess" will finally be true !

  8. Marshall_Will on September 4th, 2012 4:16 pm

    What the..? Okay, whatever!

    I just remember how *maddening* it was going thru all that repetition cold calling for new clients. "Hi.., ____? This is Marshall_Will with ____ Securities. How are YOU!?" ( Click… )

    But there was another reason it was insane. By securities law, there were certain things you HAD to say and disclose for Legal purposes. In short, you weren't given a lot of latitude.

    By now I'd say one of few things has happened: Bammie has effectively FIRED his script-writers, preferring to go it alone. 2) They've fired THEMSELVES or 3) Obama is being TOLD to STHU and stick to the script!

    Great ad for “Change we can believe in.” The change he was talking about was to stifle in all ways possible the continued advancement of America and it looks like he and his cronies are accomplishing the goal.

    HE MUST BE STOPPED!!

    It must be tough to be the leader of the free world, and have your rights, protected by the first amendment, taken away by a nasty TelePrompTer.

    If he goes alone…I'm warming up the popcorn maker!

    In the dust of The Ousting, as was the case of say, Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys*, we'll find that Valerie Jarrett played a very pivotal role in Teh One's psychological development.

    I'm not saying out & out "psychic driving" like some CIA experiment in mind manipulation from the 50's. These handlers were much more sophisticated and undetectable in their approach.

    I know it sounds far fetched, for now. But I firmly believe in time we'll get validation and some sort of nervous breakdown confession. A turning point where his mental state and pResidency were no longer his 'own'. IMHO

    *To battle his drug addictions a shrink named Eugene Landy was brought in to 'treat' Brian Wilson. To the tune of $35,000 a MONTH. It went on for years before family and the band discovered the depth of the manipulation.

    Speaking of Jarrett, she is dodging the NYT reporters in NC:

    "The empty captain`s chair:"

    How do you say, "Un-Employed" ?

  14. SignPainterGuy on September 4th, 2012 8:10 pm

    "What the ..?" Didn`t you get my meaning ? If not, look at Jeffy`s, "If, ……., he does get reelected, ….", he will inherit the mess of his own creating from his FIRST term ….

    Today on the radio the local guy was reading some of the stuff Obama`s WH staff said about him; stuff that really grated on them. He is extremely arrogant and said to most everyone, "I can do your job better", "I know more about your job", "I`m a better speech writer", etc, etc., SO, I`m going with 2) !
