Matthews advises POTUS to TOTUS: you’re fired brother

Horrifying! TOTUS has been there for this guy at some of his worse moments, and yet he has hung in there. Trip on a syllable, no problem. TOTUS kept rolling. Stumble on an market economy point you never quite understood, TOTUS did. Now Matthews wants him gone. Oh the humanity.

From last night’s Hardball, with a big hat tip to Ed at Hot Air. We cut it from the show we record so you could have a little more to digest, including a kinda crazy answer from Time Magazine.

To set the context , Matthews is asking his guests to comment on what he considered a very dry speech from the One, on Tuesday night. “It could have been written and delivered by any President”. It concludes with Matthews “dump TOTUS”. Chills.


I think it’s time for a rerun, don’t you?

    It boils down to this if the annoited one isn't taking a shot at someone or blaming Bush and the Republicans he's got nothing to say. For a guy who just got back from the Vineyard he looks terrible, maybe the job is to much for him. That 2nd video is pretty amusing Thanks JV

    Does anyone think those very good campaign speeches were made off the cuff, no preparation, no script, no teleprompter? Of course not, its a ridiculous concept to even consider since very few, if any, politicians running give speeches that way. Obama's problem is he's losing the left. Anyone read Maureen Dowd lately? The problem is not the teleprompter, its the message, and its lack of substance, consistency, and passion, and its indecision.

    As for the second video, it may make for good comedy, but its a cheap shot, Jim. Its beneath you to post it.

    In ref to the 2nd video: laughter will cure what ails ya…and we're one ailing nation right now.  Turning to humor during dark times is one way we'll keep getting up in the morning so we're not all in fetal position by the time 11/2 rolls around.

    Matthews' video:  I found it odd the way Obama put the emphasis on the word "they" in the two highlighted sentences of that speech.  I read a lot into someone's tone of voice (well, because I'm a woman and that's what we do), and his tone of voice was not the least bit congratulatory toward the troops.  He's cold and insincere.  His words are empty and hollow.  I believe nothing he says.  If MATTHEWS detects something amiss then, surely, we on the right cannot be wrong!

    POTUS to TOTUS: you are on notice.  Go work for FLOTUS!


    TOTOS to POTUS: you are nothing without me!  Remember this: ?

    I love it!!! you can only stick up for this guy for so long before you just loose it!…lol!

    Obama and His teleprompter are the dynamic dual of Washington!.. lol… they are like Jimmy V and Tim from Manchester, Lewis and Martin, Abbott and Costello, Batman and Robin, R2D2 and C3PO and Burt and Ernie… they are inseparable.

    It shows that obama has no command of the facts and does not prepare. Go look at Governor Chris Christie's speeches and Q&A sessions and he can give you the answers without a moments hesitation. Same with Paul Ryan.

    Jim, Keep on doin' what you're doin'. The 2nd video was great. The press used to show Gerry Ford stumbling, President Bush 41 sleeping at dinners and remember the famous choking on a pretzel. Everything President W did was fair game. What is this? We can't even laugh at Obama? Give me a break.

    You just can't write comedy like this, it just has to happen! Unfortunately, the comedy is at the expense of the American people, all of us, DemocRATS included. This guy is costing us big-time dollars. So, as much fun TOTUS has brought us, the bottom line is that we just can't continue to afford Barry and the Gang, with his gaffs, vacations, and whatever else. Good grief!

    One of the people who I have enjoyed listening to is Elisabeth Dole. She could walk AND talk, answer questions, her answers made sense, and she is a gifted extemporaneous speaker. All because she believes in what she says.

    I seriously doubt that Barry believes in what he says. It is not radical enough; he wants to expound his socialist rhetoric. (Will we have a May Day review of the military forces passing in front of the White House?) I doubt that he could tell an interviewer what he just spoke about let alone what it meant. Even with TOTUS, Barry is clueless; TOTUS could have have our president (shudder) say ANYTHING and Barry would probably not even know what he was saying; he would be too focused on reading what TOTUS was displaying. In that case, who is the real president? Now, that is scary!

    As for the Time Magazine wonk, Mike Crowley, was he answering some other question that no one else heard? If he was, he should seek medical help immediately or else patent whatever he was taking. Talk about a psychiatric disassociation. That was an example of a true disconnect. It was sad.

     Totus has just released the following statement to the media:

    “Should the POTUS make any ill-advised decisions concerning my future employment, I will be immediately supported by TUKUS (Teleprompter Union Kickass of the United States). In sympathetic protest, all computer-generated equipment in the nation will stage 24 hour strikes at regular intervals until I am reinstated to my rightful position as the mouthpiece of the President.

    p.s. Let's see Matthews spit over his broadcoast going blank!

Obama somber
