      1. Perfect

        • Perfect is right. Glad they got that angle, US Centurion. I feel like we are being led by a teleprompter sometimes. I may have to frame that picture.

          Just saw that there’s a missile silo available for sale and it’s in the NY mountains with a landing strip and hangar, an above ground home and hunting, fishing and hiking all right there. Used to house a 110 foot warhead. Wish I had the money for it. Heavenly:

          • That silo sounds pretty great. I’d chip in for it haha. The article also says that it goes down 180 feet and has three foot thick walls. Pretty impressive.

          • That would be the Telepropmter In Chief, right?

            • T.O.T.U.S.

              Gold Leader standing by.

        • A Picture is worth a thousand words and minus (hopefully) a ten or twenty million votes.

        • Yes is it perfect. They are all puppets of the global elites, what does it matter what face is on the puppet?

      2. You people are pathetic. If Romney is elected, I hope his opponents are just as disrepectful towards him, he is just a worthy of disrespect as Obama.

        • respect the office, not the man.

          respect is earned, it should not be automatic, some of them deserve respect, most of them don’t……

          • I hear that often “Respect the office, not the man”. I totally disagree, for at any given time, the office is ONLY as good as the man holding it. If the “office” seat is held by a man that is a mass murderer, a liar, and one of the people responsible for the downfall of an entire sovereign country, how can respect anything about it? And will you let him off because of his political immunity for holding that office?

            I say our recent history of presidents as well as other public officials at the federal level should be held responsible for war crimes, fraud, deceit, and malfeasance and not get away with it ‘because their office seat is too sacred’.

          • Why would there be any respect for an office that “elevates” a single person over 300,000,000 other people?

            • Oh, so you’d rather have 30,000,000 people have complete control? Have fun with the serial killers, thieves, rapists, arsonists and psychopaths.

          • I respect a man but not a position. As I vote for candidates based on them as a person versus what party they are in. In my opinion the party system needs to be shit canned and we just run as many people as we can get the signatures for. There would just be multiple rounds of elections and the top vote getter becomes president and 2nd becomes vice president 🙂

            • so youre saying that 2 people who potentially disagree with each other should lead a nation. have fun kid, i’d prefer anarchy

        • You mean the way libs were disrespectful toward Bush. Our teleprompter in chief hasn’t shown any reason to show respect. Respect has to be earned.

            • BWAHAHAHA!!! Stabilized the economy? Thanks KY Mom, I needed a good laugh.

              In his defense, housing prices have stabilized…. after they lost 60 to 80% of their value.

            • Yeah, kind of like how Barackula stated the economy was “roaring back” a few months ago? lol! LMFAO.

        • Joe: I agree with you that Romney is worthy of the same comments. As was Bush, as is Obama.
          I think you are getting your little feelers hurt because you assume that everyone here is only anti Obama. Truth is, most here are against anyone that is a threat of this country and our liberty.

          • saddle up that is right, you give romney a chance and see. time will tell. we have an idea on romney but until they get in we dont know what they are going to pass or unregulate. but as for obama JoeinNC, we have lost respect for a lying 2 faced pos. You can tell a good team will win. they compromise and do different things to win. Obama only wants to play his way and that does not make a team strong. He has truely worked for others in a hard job. He takes advise from idiots and your telling us that you think we are all pathetic. thats your feelings fine, but I think your very young and got some learing to do and your attitude will change. Obama has earned no respect from any of us. would you trust someone that lies to you all the time? If you do then your the fool. Many of us don’t care for romney either but he is 10x better than Obama on anyday. You don’t have a president stick up for the black dancing party. Once they start their little stupid game they will be swiss cheese rather quickly in civil unrest in america if that happens. they have no supplies, no food, nothing but a paycheck thats not comming. I hope you keep a open mind about things my young friend.

          • As long as he isnt an ethnic , I dont care who is president .

            • T.R, ethnic or not, they will still be controlled by the global elite. I call people like you, pathethnic.

        • Don’t be a little bitch……

        • And yes, if Romney acts like Obama, I’ll dis him too.

          • Me too Heretic.

        • I love it !!! So you agree that obammy is worthy of disrespect ! I can see you are a product of our wonderful public “education” system.

        • Unlike his Nobel Peace Prize which was awarded before he actually did anything to deserve it, winning a Presidential election is not worthy of my respect in-of-itself. Talk is cheap to me, only actions count.

          Only the most shallow, mindless, immature drones who are conditioned to follow and not lead would fall victim to Obama’s hypnotic persuasion. Wait until his second term to see exactly what he’s made of. He won’t have anything to lose if he wins a second term.

          • suspicion of politicians and government in general used to be one of the most admirable traits of AMERICANS.
            too bad mindless cult worship has taken place of this great american tradition…

            • ignifer, well said! I couldn’t agree more. A healthy distrust of political figures is essential IMO.

        • Where did you go to school? The George Stephanopoulos School of Culture? Respect is earned! Idiot!

        • @JoeinNC,
          elections are irrelevant and a facade to the true American citizen. We are taught to believe there are free elections, but rather the elite have already chosen our country’s direction. I have no respect for a worthless puppet, who is controlled by evil bankers bent on world domination.

        • Hey Joe. Wake up. It’s not about Left or Right, Republican or Democrat. It’s about Freedom or Control. Times is short. Get your head right before they take it from you.

        • Typical Obama supporter… Can’t spell, but good at complaining.

          • Speaking of Joe, of course….

          • you got that right 9mm

        • JoeinNC, at least Romney hasnt had a chance to screw things up. Obummer has already had his chance to screw it up, and he has done a stellar job. Anyone who votes for him is a zombie, a sheeple, or a hangeron. In any other job, performance like his would have been a firing offense in the first six months.

        • JoeinNC,

          If Romney kills people daily with drones in other countries, if Romney goes out of his way to divide the have and have-nots, if Romney lies at every turn, if Romney puts this country on the brink of disaster, if Romney increases the entitlement class another 50%, if Romney forces religious entities to go against their beliefs, if Romney creates a health care system that will be the worst debacle in the history of this country, if Romney associates with thugs and socialist progressive miscreants, if Romney does not come up with a budget during his whole term in office, if Romney tramples the constitution, if Romney bales out all of his buddies and contributors, if Romney tries to destroy the coal industry, if Romney refuses to give small businesses a break and I mean that, not a break in the back like they are getting now, if Romney toots his own horn about how he killed so and so, if Romney calls the white house, his house, not ours, the people. If Romney does absolutely nothing for the blacks, if Romney gives the illegal’s all the goodies with our tax payer money (only for votes because he really doesn’t give a damn about them), etc.etc.etc.etc.etc….. then yes, Romney will get the same crap that the anointed one gets. Get the picture?

        • Seriously, Joe…if you’re going to troll, at least make the attempt to have reasonably correct grammar, and better yet something that is actually interesting or thought-provoking to say. Perhaps you can practice that when you come back to whine and cry about how your comment was collapsed AGAIN. Good lord, could you please, please, please quit being such a freaking tool? My three-year-old, who still needs his butt wiped, is not as whiny as you. And I hate to say it, but I suspect he is smarter as well.

        • If Barack Romney is elected it will be no different than if Mitt Obama is elected. Nothing will change for the better.


          AGAINST THE LAW.


        • JoeinNC: You’ve haven’t been paying attention Joe, they’re worse now before the election, just imagine how they’ll be if Romney wins. Most liberals lack the emotional maturity to have a civil conversation and when cornered on any subject (by employing logic) they resort to name calling and yelling like an undisiplined child. They’re all about their feelings, reason be damned. When a liberal is losing an arguement their favorite fallback position is to call someone a racist/bigot/hateful or some other phrase that they love to parrot. It’s a rookie move in debate: when a person can’t refute the facts by using logic, that is when they can’t successfully attack the message, in desparation, the opponent attacks the messenger. This is called Ad Hominen, a real bush league move, and it rarely works. Although I must say that I’ve heard some disturbing things from some of the most zealous wing of the Republican Party as well, but not to the extent that liberals employ.

        • Then why the heck do you keep coming here and hanging out with us pathetic people? Remind me again of just what it was you have contributed to the conversation…besides comic relief! 🙂

        • You don’t have to worry about that Joe, many of the democrats are some of the most disrespectful people in America. Not only are they disrespectful they are also the most intolerant people on the earth.

        • @JoeinNC….

          No…what is pathetic is someone who trolls around on a site where he shares nothing in common with the other folks who post there.

          Why don’t you bugger off? Some bridge is missing its troll.

          • Humans as a race are intolerable to each other lets not just label one part of us now 🙂

            Crusades anyone?
            Marshmellow roast in salem anyone?
            Hey where did all the native americans go?
            Hmmm asian round up anyone? ( note during the war 🙂
            Hmmm didnt they used to use the bible to justify slavery back in the day?
            mmm nothing like the smell of burning jew in the morning eh?
            The only good commie is a dead commie.
            can go on 🙂

            we do not get any better. we all suck when it comes to tolerance.

          • also the troll thing is not about trolls as in the big creatures. It is a fishing refrence, to trolling to try and catch a bite.

        • JoeinNC; Seems to my by your comments the you to are reatdy for a CHANGE!!!!!!

        • It does not matter who wins as they both have the SAME agenda. Respect is not the issue either as our own president doesn’t respect our American Constitution, the rights of the people, nor does he share the same dreams as the American people. Doesn’t matter what color or country he comes from now because he’s here and he takes orders from others. Do you really think the president runs the country? Not even the people run it.
          We have been dictated to for so long that no one even notices. Sure we want someone to take care of the world for us and without our participation it will lead to a place we don’t want to go. IF we were all on board and participated with how the Government was run on our behalf then maybe we would have been on the right road. No disrespect.

      3. sad truth is

        that could be any and virtually ALL politicians

        • ROTFLMFAO

        • Obama made $900,000 less in 2011 than he did in 2010, so even obama is doing worse under obama….

          • That’s priceless.

        • agreed, thats why i’m here; i dont trust any of them; they all played some part in getting us to the point that we’re expecting a collapse.

          canada’s going to sit most of it out as they keep most of their financials in check and actually use their natural resources.

      4. Don’t we wish

      5. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Now if they could just cut off the microphone and take his darn pen away from him we’d be set.

        • Many more thumbs up.

        • Has he been officially released? I read that a judge ordered his release but I worry that Fed attorneys will do some legal manipulating to keep him locked up.

      6. Yep.

      7. Look everyone “It’s the unknown President”

        -Chuck Barris 🙂

        • The $1.98 beauty contest.

          • Now that is priceless!

      8. What he is saying: “We are forced to make tough choices.”

        What he means: “Buckle up folks because the gov’t is about to screw you harder than you thought was possible.”

      9. Nothing to see here folks…no i mean it, literally nothing to see

        propter about as empty as the head behind it

        • prompter…doh

      10. Brandon Raub Set to Be Released!
        By Silver Shield, on August 23rd, 2012
        HOPEWELL, Va. –

        A judge today ordered the release of a Marine Corps veteran being detained as a psychiatric patient after concerns over his Facebook postings.

        After an hourlong hearing, Circuit Judge W. Allan Sharrett said an involuntary commitment petition issued against Brandon J. Raub was invalid because it contained no allegation or basis to holding him.

        “The petition is so devoid of any factual allegations that it could not be reasonably expected to give rise to a case or controversy,” said the release order signed by the judge and sought by lawyers Anthony F. Troy and Brian D. Fowler.

        Sharrett said that he was shocked by the failure of a magistrate to not include in the order any grounds for holding Raub, a Chesterfield resident who was transferred from John Randolph Hospital in Hopewell to the Salem Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

        • any comphensation for the mans time?
          its not like he was detained willfully

          • His lawyer said they are contemplating a civil suit.(RT tv)

            • hope he sues the “Individuals” and not us the tax payers

              too bad the collapse of our money will probably happen before he gets his day in court

        • Thanks to all the veterans(among others) who stood up for this man and contacted a lawyer for him.His lawyer said (RT tv)that last year, in Virginia alone, there were 20,000 cases similar to this.He said that chances were that if he had not gotten a lawyer he would have disappeared into the system.He may have been tooting his own horn but he deserves it.

      11. I really like the slogan “Forward”. Forward from what???!!! Forward to me means moving from progress to more progress, and as far as I can see we have not had any progress and have actually moved BACKWARDS!!!! So does his message of Forward actually mean continuation of more moving backwards??!!!!

        • Forward refers to the lines. The bread lines, the unemployment lines, the food stamp lines, the rfid chip lines. Makes perfect sense, really. It isn’t a slogan so much as our directional order.

          • I think The sign is Misprinted..It should Say :FOREWARNED” Get It?

            • Or … Barackwards Obama … ugh

        • Forward…like the lemmings,regardless of the fate on the rocks below…FORWARD,hell awaits!

        • Forward – To the FEMA camps!!!!

      12. Teleprompter said what?

      13. I want to get my crayons out and put a smiley face on that block head.
        He has his tongue sticking out saying; na na na na na .., how do you like hope and change now SUCKERS!!!!


        • This should be set up as a Tumblr, like the “not impressed” gymnast.

      14. Hey Brandon, Semper Fi brother, keep up the fight

      15. Hope everyone in all 53 states gets a chance to see this picture. BTW, I’d love to draw a dart board on that white square.

        • @PO’d,,,,did you see his wife wants all Democrats (in all 53 states) to get out and vote on November 2nd?

          • ….she’s just adding with her teeth again.–.hee-haw..

            Kenya say forward to the abyss…

            Kenya say hope they don’t find out the truth…

            Kenya say change from uncle tom to aunt jemima…

            Kenya say “kenya,my kenya” five times a day…

            ….can ya hear the sound of revolution, I can…

      16. That is so much more fitting than all the 08 “halo” photos that the media kept using to make everyone think this fool was some sort of savior.

        On another note – the FORWARD campaign logo is taken from Big O’s hero Mao Zedong who’s slogan was The Great Leap Forward. This is the same Chairman Moa who was later responsible for the deaths of some 80 million of his own people. Nice to know Obama has set his sights so high

      17. You realize that previous presidents used teleprompters also, right?

        • I don’t believe shrub did…at least not on a regular basis. He sounded too much like a moron.

        • Noo I diiidn know datt.

        • Yah! But They could speak without Them!

      18. Thats great, best pic I’ve ever seen of him. And just like I tell my kids “If you want respect you have to earn it” It doesn’t come free.

      19. So idiotic. What politician doesn’t use teleprompters? The dumbest ones write notes on their hands.

        Keep spreading the red/blue team talking point BS.

        • Which talking points were you referring to?

          Was it the “Presented without commentary” portion of the post or something else?

          I agree 100% with Satori’s note above – this picture could have been taken of ANY politician and been relevant.. It just so happened to be the POTUS, and I think it really hits home for people (plus it’s really funny that it happened to be President Obama given his undeniable dependency on teleprompters… take away TOTUS and you end up with ‘You didn’t build that!’ type comments)

      20. Hmmm, let me think. When did they start using teleprompters? Is it either Bush? Or Reagan? Carter, maybe? Could it be Nixon, or Johnson? I think the last president that told the truth, consequences be damned, was Harry Truman. Before that it was Lincoln, and before that it was Washington. And even they were known to equivocate. All politicians basically stink. I was going to use another word, but am trying to be civil. They all hide behind lies and half-truths and scare tactics and the only reason any of them say they care is because they want to get re-elected. Mark Russell said it best “Throw the bums out. Let’s get all new bums.”

        • “New Boss, same as the Old Boss.”

      21. Leave it to Mac to come up with a true classic. Just look at that blank white board and that is exactly what we all get with almost if not all politicians, EMPTINESS and nothing.

      22. Send it!

      23. Over on ZH they’ve been referring to him lately as the TOTUS (Teleprompter of the United States). Surprised I hadn’t seen a reference to that here yet.

      24. …my mistake…I thot he was the POS_OTUS…

        take away his prompter crutch, and he is just stoopid larry, or stammering steve with a big pee stain on the front of his pants.

        bu..bu..bu..bu..but honey, its my turn to be on tv …

      25. LMAO!! TOTUS. Teleprompter of the US…

      26. obama is a baffoon!

      27. BLOCKHEAD.

      28. JoeinNC says:

        “You people are pathetic. If Romney is elected, I hope his opponents are just as disrepectful towards him, he is just a worthy of disrespect as Obama.”

        Come on Joe, I need a bunch of help with this one – seriously!!

        Y’all are in NC and I’m in SC. Y’all want to come down here and do some hog huntin’?
        Or are you already attached? LOL

        I shure as hel aint one fur gramar nor spelin and I now I kneed sum help now and then. Id be happy to cum on up thar and git to meat yall n see if I kan help.

        All joking aside, the media is most ‘disrespectful’ to Romney NOW! What say YOU? Please do not respond with a compound complex sentence!

        Y’all Beware! I love the picture – A MIND WITHOUT A FACE©.

        • Seems like the left used to get a chubby depicting GW Bush as an ape or Alfred E Neuman plus other things. Then their were the rape comments made against Palin and her daughter not to mention the nasty ass things said against a child. Looks to me like the vacant blank totus in front of Obama is a pretty accurate symbol.

      29. Looks like he got his mother’s face.

        • that is funny!!!!!!

      30. Funny, his campaign slogans are the same as Hitler. Hmmmm

      31. Hey Obama, you didn’t write that speech………. somebody else wrote that speech!

        • Too Funny!!!


      32. I see a man who doesn’t care how stupid this looks. That is kind of scary. I have watched him speech live before and he can give the biggest smile and saying the biggest lies… That is kind of scary. I see a man who says, “yea i need help talking, what are you going to do about it… That is kind of scary…

        • Look at his eyes and his expressions when his guard is down. scary.

      33. Reader and Chief! Fairy Tales and Propaganda. If you speak facts and truth your extreme, maybe even dangerous. I agree though the picture says it all, no comment necessary!

      34. Behold ye the Faceless Obamanation.

      35. I don’t like the way the flag is hanging in the pic. It is backwards and upside down, just like what he is doing to the US.

        • So I checked- “When the flag is displayed either horizontally or vertically against a wall, the union should be at the top and to your left.”

          Actually, I think it’s top down-bottom up-inside out- but
          either way-it’s still gonna hurt

      36. Pulitzer Prize Photo!

      37. You’re a blockhead Charlie Brown

      38. Obama shows us his US birth certificate.

      39. Unfortunately for Obama, the new version 2.0 teleprompter automatically deletes any comments that are lies or outright bull sh!t.

      40. Quite an improvement, I’d say.

      41. Is it my faulty memory or did we just endure 8 years of a president who among other things, lied us into war, destroyed our international standing as a force for good in the world, economic meltdown, turned science into a political tool, spent in deficit when there was no major economic crisis, attacked the environment like he was personally offended by what remained of our clean air and water, legalized torture, politicized everything and appointed cronies and incompetents to every post that he could (Remember Alberto Gonzalas, Brownie at FEMA and Harriet Mier who without qualification he nominated to the Supreme Court), ignored the threat posed by al qaeda until it was too late, even though Bill the slutmiester Clinton warned him about bin laden in their chat during the transition, outed a CIA agent, authored the patriot act which among other things deprives us of the right to habeus corpus, saw more of his appointees go to prison for corruption then any other president including Harding and Grant combined, made a joke of medical reform by preventing medicare medicaid from purchasing meds from the lowest cost supplier, made it illegal for Americans to go to Canada to fill their perscriptions at a third of the cost in order to help out big pharma, Terry Schiavo, repealed the law that prevented lawmakers upon leaving office from going directly to work for the corporations on who’s behalf they passed legislation for….. and on and on and on. Hey I guess its not stealing if you make stealing legal.

        So maybe Obama isn’t my concept of the ideal president. In fact this would have been the perfect election cycle for a real 3rd party alternative. Too late now I suppose. Fact is, we only have two choices. After the last republican administration, I don’t think this nation can survive another republican administration. I’m conservative. Voting Dem is hard for me to do but better men then me have given up their lives defending this nation. I figure out of respect for their sacrifice, if for no other reason, i can keep voting dem (the first time i voted dem was against bush when he ran for a second term) until the reps come to their senses or I get to old to make it to the polls.

        Btw, my idea of a good president: Someone who is fiscally conservative, recognizes immigration is a threat to our national identity and is willing, no matter the cost, to put up the resources to stop it cold and further, will not reward those who entered illegaly with citizenship status. I want a president who believes in and supports free enterprise and doesn’t believe in welfare for individuals or corporations. Will maintain defense spending at a level which will deter aggression from other nations but will not spend on defense beyond that deterence level. A president who will support and strengthen the freedom of information act. Free citizens must have access to information in order to make informed choices. Finally I want a president who understands how deficit spending is as much a tax as income tax is a tax. he needs to know that deficit spending always comes back as inflation which if left unchecked can destroy our economy. If you doubt that, look at Argentina. They are a case study of how a 1st world nation can become a 2nd world nation simply by misunderstanding how the relationship between production of goods and services is related to the money supply.

        As for other issues i.e. the war on christmas lol, gay marriage, abortion etc. I may have my own views on those matters, and they don’t have to be the same as the presidents in order for me to support him or her. But the one’s I identified I think are critical to our national survival.
