TOTUS: A Look At The Screen Behind (or in front of, really) The President

While trying to "humanize" their pick for President, MSNBC does a humorous bit on Barry. It's just a cute skit where the reporter ends up interviewing TOTUS, the Teleprompter Of The United States. No harm, no foul, right?

I don't know about you, but when I hear the notion of public speaking and the president, I still can't get the ringing out of my ears over the 8 years of constant drumbeat from the MSM saying, "POOR SPEAKER=DUNCE", and all of the other variations of such hatemongering towards a sitting President.

But to their guy, they gently poke fun of the softer sides of his very, very, trying time in the White House. Doing a "hug piece" on him has started early--be ready for a long ride through Obamaland, filled with well-produced puppets, songs, and video graphics, all for the means of...

...brainwashing you? Yes, but that's not all.

This cutesy soft-hit on the president from MSNBC serves as a distraction from the past week's news: N Korea thumbing its nose at Barry; his recent calling the US one of the largest Muslim nations, after just 2 months ago telling Arabs that "the US is not a Christian nation"; and the announcement of a deepening recession with no solution on the horizon anytime soon.

TOTUS needs the press, and the press needs us to watch the little trick over hear while you avoid looking at the falling empire.
