Stand And Deliver

Big Guy decided to pull all of his economic advisers into a photo op to announce the Chrysler decision. Timmy Terrific was front and center, as were executives involved in the negotiations for the car company. Everyone wanted to sit around a big table to make it look like something was actually being done, but Big Guy insisted that it be done standing up. Larry Summers was going to be in the shot and Big O didn't want him nodding off during his speech.

How can you tell I was there? Everyone to Big Guy's right is reading the remarks from my left screen and everyone to his left is reading them on my right. So much for cropping me out of the photo. Now everyone just looks bored.


  1. This is a good video you will like it. This incorporates Lincoln Obama’s inspiration on so many levels.

  2. TOTUS,
    I hear a show on the FOX network topped the Big Uh's presser last night. Heartache! I admire you for putting on your brave faces and getting right back out there. Courage dear TOTUS, courage!

  3. You know how else you can tell our beloved TOTUS was there outside of camera range in that shot above? Because Big Guy's chin is up in the clouds. That's his trademark reading stance.

    I used to cringe when he arrogantly lifted his chin while speaking. However, I realize now it just means he's reading and he needs glasses. For those over 40 especially, It's usually easier to read out of the bottom of the eyes.

    The Reader of the Free World should buck up and wear his specs. Or is it that our Celebrity in Chief is a tad too vain to wear them in front of the adoring masses? Maybe this need for glasses also explains the uhms and flubs while TOTUS is in charge of Big Guy's speeches.

    Oh, and he's arrogant.

  4. AWWWWW! I could never forget you were there, TOTUS. Without you there'd be just a big 0 ... and that's a zero, not an O~!

  5. TOTUS:
    Just think if they had all chimed in to your prompts, like a karaeoke Gregorian chant. It might get the Catholics back on board.

    I couldn't help but notice when I heard the speech today that BO sounds like he might be getting a little big for his presidential britches. Was it just me TOTUS, or did you also think his ennunciation seemed exaggerated, all his vowels quite round. Kings of old believed in Divine Right, due to supposedly being cousins to God, or something like that. Seems to me your boss has a little bit of megalomania.

    Megalomania is sort of like swine flu, only it only kills countries.

  6. Can you just imagine what the event would be like if TOTUS wasn't there?

  7. Dearest TOTUS,
    I can't remain silent any longer. I've been shamelessly flirting with you for about a week, even going so far as to admit that I have a terrible crush on you several threads back. Yet, there has been no indication on your part that you know I'm alive. Somewhere in the back of my mind an awful question has been nagging at me. I really don't know how to approach you perhaps scroll in a different direction? No, it can't be true. How silly of me to even conjure up anything so ridiculous. Pay me no mind. I'll continue to suffer in silence if you so choose.

  8. Stand up guys every one ,at least in this photo .It is your standard that inspires them tho TP. I am certain it is tempered titanium .
    Anything less could not stand to the strain
    of giving our own proud Bundymobile manufacturers to the Fix It Again Tony group.
    That should help even more than the Mercedes name affiliation did.
    Such a pity that Tata and Yugo declined .
    No doubt FIAT and the UAW are just the team .
    Naturally you just scroll on , beaming those 100 watts all the while seemingly oblivious to all the chaos & carnage.
    It is dedicated servers that do that sort of thing TP ,and we have noticed that they are part of your internal make up .
    We need more people like you in government .

  9. Back off Lighthouse. You never bought him a lotto ticket.

  10. TOTUS, you are such a gentleman. You know very well those weren't "negotiations" with the car companies!

    Oh, and the "economic advisors" (who also do as they're told) were NOT reading your scrolling, TOTUS. Their eyes were fixed on the Secret Service guys----who pack heat, ya know.

  11. I'm surprised no one standing behind President Obama wore dark sunglasses. It looked like a wannabe hip-hop convention.

  12. bettyann,
    Ouch! Looks like our charming TOTUS has more than one female admirer. So you bought him a lotto ticket? I'll back off for a while, but only to rethink my strategy.

  13. Hi TOTUS, this BIP (Queen Elizabeth’s “Betty” ipod).
    I just wanted to say thank you soooo much for all those lovely words I listen to everyday from your wonderful, marvelous, enchanting, ‘o so hip’ President Barack. His voice is the sexiest voice evah. Betty just plays them all day everyday… after day, after day. You would think she might tire of his velvet crooning but no, it goes on and on I am so lucky. And when President Barack gave me to her he somehow arranged for all of his new crooning to automatically update and now I have that glorious ‘100 days of ecstasy’ speech from the other night. It was just wonderful don’t you think! Betty played it last night as she dozed off and then she went to bed listening to it later! Gosh I so wish I was you. After all, you get to scroll for him every single time he speaks which is rather often you lucky duck. I just bet all those Americans love listening to him speak as much as me and can’t get enough of him.!! I was wondering if you could send me an advanced copy of his next speech which I am sure will be coming soon because I seriously do not think I can wait 24 hours!

  14. Another good idea for a photo op would be "big guy" with all his "electronic advisors". Then you could be front row-center, TOTUS!!! You'd deserve it!

  15. You just may be onto something, clever Image.

    Be that as it may.....

    it's going to take a lot more than glasses to get that brain off the ground.

    Barack's Brain Re-build Project -- TO DO's:

    1. Switch from dial-up to DSL.
    2. Replace "Pong" with artificial intelligence software.
    3. De-bug synthesized speech software to fix the "uuuuh" issue
    4. Add more memory to increase read speed
    5. Copy Encarta to hard drive (include such facts as number of U. S. states)
    6. Clean CPU of nicotine gunge
    7. Road-test unit for performance in swamps and deep underground.
    8. Add foreign language (basics) software; also, adjust code so stops pronouncing only Islamic regional names in local vernacular
    9. Add supplemental power source
    10. Remove all but 3 of the 45,000 photos of himself to speed up performance.....

  16. Preptile, you crack me up (and that's not as in windshield, heh, heh). LOL.

    FIAT (Fix It Again, Tony) -- Bah, ha, haa!
    FORD (Fix Or Repair Daily)


    Hey! What about Daewoo?

    "Cuuuhm aaaahn down! To the Donkey Barn! We've got lots of Daewoos for ya to check out here... . Tell 'em Soetoro sentcha."

  17. Cute, Jenny in Oz. Okay. Here's that speech you wanted....

    "Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh... hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.... and uh... bear with me now...................okay.........I didn't get much sleep last night.............uh.... folks..... uuuuuuuuuuuuh.... uh......"

    No WONDER H.R.H. listens to it at bedtime. Best sleeping aid she's "evah" used.

  18. P.S. BTW, Oz, whenever you order any of B.O.'s speeches, be sure to request the "Townhall Meeting Version." You don't want the one's where TOTUS is helping D'oh! -- she'll never get to sleep.

  19. Scroll in a different direction!!!!

    Oh, Handsome Free and Tall TOTUS, tell us ladies it ain't so! We will be broken hearted, could be our best friend instead I guess.

  20. Hey girls, I thought for a minute that there was gonna be a catfight over TOTUS. Looks like you two have decided to make it a battle of wit and ingenuity instead. Bravo!

    You know every time I see that AVIS commercial with the orange car whose owner leaves him for a rental (leaving his mug or whatever on top)...that is what I think TOTUS sounds like, like the voice of the car. Not sure why, it just seems to fit.

    TOTUS, tell us, are you the quiet sensitive type or strong and outgoing, or what? If you had a voice... would you be loud or quiet like the AVIS car voice?

    Maybe you could do a profile page so we could really get to know a little more about you. Even those of us who aren't going to buy you lottery tickets or claw anyone's eyes out over you would like to know. After all, you are our hero.

    I understand if you must remain mostly cloaked in secrecy but a little background on the life of the one who feeds the reader of the free world his lines would be well received.

  21. This bears repeating:

    "Megalomania is sort of like swine flu, only it only kills countries." [Betty Ann]


    It's like a quote re: the human caused global climate change hoax (in the book The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming):
