Then you've got the protesters throwing everything from rotten fruit to pig snouts out on the streets. And you're surprised that I didn't bring a few extra screens to take the brunt of all this? This wear and tear adn being in the constant public eye does get to the best of us. Remember when after just two weeks in the White House, Big Guy said he was exhausted? For the next two weeks he took a vacation in Barbados to rest up. His two stand ins, Raydeontay and Adonis, largely filled in. And no one even noticed. But there is one way to tell whether or not it's Big Guy or a stand-in.
Raydeontay and Adonis are much better at using me. They've had lots of time to practice. Beyond the 15 skeletons, it also turns out he was the mastermind behind the home mortgage plan a decade ago that has us in this economic mess today.
Combined, those two facts should make him unconfirmable. You'd think. But we look at these things a bit differently here in the Obama Administration. See, thanks to this embarrassing ovesight by our team, we now know that Neal Wolin has a killer's instinct, perfect for a Treasury Secretary incapable of not looking like a deranged killer in official photos.
And who will want to cross him on policy differences? And who better to fix the financial disaster that was created, than the man who created it? Frankly, with this kind of impressive resume, I'm surprised we aren't giving Wolin a more important job in our Administration. I'd be shocked if he isn't confirmed by unanimous consent.
Posted by TOTUS at AM 7 comments Teleprompter Summit Beyond the big, high profile meetings that the press covers at multi-lats like the G, there are plenty of opportunities for a number of other meetings among aides for economics and national security policies. Earlier today, the teleprompters for all of the leaders sat down. The meeting was called by the Irish prompter, not a surprise given the St.
Patty's Day incident at the White House. What a bunch of pushy, opinionated hard drives these guys are. I mean, I walk into the room, and it's like I've got a target on my back. I've got the French Promptaire lecturing me on how I've got to get the Big Guy to talk about fundamental, global-economic-regulation reform. I've got the Russian Promptski huffing and puffing about how it's important that I get Big O to say his guy and China can have a new currency system.
And I don't even understand what the British screen was saying through his heavy Liverpudlian accent.
I have to say, though, that every one of them said something that had merit. And I'm trying to live by Gibbsy's rule about "listening. The most innovative, blah, blah, blah. But now that Big Guy and our braintrust have brought the U. Everyone except Iceland. Because their economy really sucks. We expect this overseas trip to be a smashing success, in part because of individuals like the one's below. To give you FOTs an insight into how these people help us, here is an excerpt from atexting string between two of those faithful followers.
The names have been changed to protect their privacy. Keith Olbermann: Watching President Obama land. My goodness, he and Michelle look magnificent coming out of the plane. David Gregory: I know; when the door to Air Force One opened, the rain here in London stopped falling and we saw a rainbow. The press corps doesn't think it's a coincidence, but Gibbs is putting out a statement denying the President has powers to control the weather.
Fact Check: It is well established that in locales that Big Guy has visited, rain tastes like rose water, rainbows spontaneously appear in clear skies and unicorns roam the land in peace. Olbermann: Oh, I wish I was there.

That's what I do and look at my ratings. Fact Check: Yes, it has worked out well. Gregory: Don't feel sad. You'd hate this trip, it's all policy and global issues; nobody here to smear. Well, except for the Germans, who keep complaining about how much in debt our leader is loading onto us. We're just going to do puff pieces for a week on Michelle's wardrobe and Obama's workout regimen post-jetlag.
Fact Check: It's true. We've already given them the scripts. Olbermann: Yeah, those Germans are a tiresome people. Like Republicans, but with a sense of humor, and without the neocons, if you get my drift. Gregory: LOL! That reminds of this joke In both cases, we're going to try to do phonetics so BO can impress them with his grasp of their native languages. That means I'll be scrolling like a mad-machine.
Big Guy has been preoccupied lately with the auto business he took over, which kind of ties in with the Chinese meeting, after all, with all of the debt China's bought from us over the past year, Jintao is to the United States what Big Guy was to GM. Except Jintao can't fire the Big O. At least that's what the lawyers tell us. But he was still in the pet carrier when we unloaded it a few minutes ago from the cargo hold. I'm very excited.
Big Boy and I haven't been here together since our trip to Moscow back in Oh, wait, that was with Clinton, Big Guy's trip was to Iran, never mind. Anyway, we are arriving here and Gibbsy told us our message points should hit on three L's: listen, lead, and London. Someone asked why "London," and he said he couldn't think of another "action verb" to insert into the messaging that fit with Big Guy's goals. Someone suggested that maybe we should use the word, "Learn. Thay says it all.
Glad our Administration is modeling itself after a friend's. Like that four legged wizzer won't be all over my stands. Appears Big Guy still has his job, but things tense.
