Help Save TOTUS, the Voice of America

Well, we finally found something on the Hill that engenders bipartisanship: Big Guy’s Budget. Yep. Everybody is trashing it.

It’s going to be a brutal session. They’re even threatening to defund TOTUS! No, I kid you not. Defund TOTUS.These R-words really are un-American.

Before Obama met the press, a first-term Republican congressman, Steve Womack, had prepared an amendment to a spending bill that would have denied federal funds for Obama’s use of a teleprompter. Republicans mock Obama, considered a gifted orator, as being over-reliant on the teleprompter when he speaks.

I suppose you call this, “overly reliant”

As Big Guy explained at the time, he was kind of tired. He hadn’t had much sleep over the last 48 hours - because he had just visited 57 of the 60 states.

Or maybe you consider this evidence of “overly dependent:”

or this,

Butt even TOTUS can’t handle everything. Such as ignorance of basic military terminology:

And consider this: if Doug Powers is correct, and defunding TOTUS is tantamount to defunding the presidency, we’re going to be left with our wing man, the second most eloquent man ever born:

Here you’ll see where our very own “Stand Up Chuck” got her name.

So I think you see why we need to get this R-word Womack’s budget amendment deep sixed pronto. After all, if they’re willing to defund TOTUS, what’s next? The Mirror of the United States?

I really don’t want to go back to the Smithsonian, and believe me, you don’t want me to either:

Butt it’s not about me. This is really about the future of America. Because remember: “There is no POTUS without TOTUS.”
