This is going to bust the Presidential signature as a collectible. No proof that it was signed by "The Man" means no value to the knowledgeable collector. As for signing extensions to the Patriot Act with one, well, is it a law or isn't it? It is certainly ironic.

A professional could tell the difference. But honestly, who gives a poop?

Next, he needs an auto swing for the golf course. He already has an auto speech with his TelePrompTer and an auto US hater with his wife.

Actually the auto pen should have a signature "present" as this was his most Prevalent vote when he was in the senate

This boob is so lazy he doesn't even like signing his own name. They could have taken the paperwork out to the golf course and he could have signed it at the turn.

Why is it that when you and I "sign" legal and binding documents, we must do so in person, the signature must be witnessed and acknowledge by a notary, however the POTUS can sign legislation unseen with an electric signature and that is binding?

I don't think his autopen should be honored.

Obama is so drunk from guzzling beers on the golf course that he has to have a machine sign his name for him! A sober monkey could do his job and probably do it better.

Obama is so clueless that he wasted $850 billion on the 'bailout' of the richest corporations and hedge fund managers. If the drunken monkey had invested that same amount into real jobs, we could have 100 percent employment for all 13 million unemployed Americans with jobs paying $30,000 each for more than two years.
(13 million jobs times $30,000 is $390 billion. Two years of those jobs would total $780 billion, leaving another $70 billion for supplies.)

With the $30,000 going to every unemployed American, the money would repair all roads, all bridges, pick up all trash along roads and rivers, stimulate the economy, start new businesses, and create even more jobs. But NO, the drunken monkey Obama is still playing golf and guzzling beers while a machine signs his name to more pieces of crap legislation. Vote for anybody but Obama next time!

Maybe your financial portion should also include the trip to South Africa. She took her mother, and her two children on an extended vacation again, on taxpayer money.
God only knows what this costing.

We (the taxpayers) also paid for two (2) of the children's cousins to go. The Obamas not only do not get it, but they care less that the American people are footing their extravagant holidays.

The auto-pen should never be used for legislative signings. Bad idea.

Try this little stunt the next time you go buy a house, get a car loan, or do some business down at the courthouse.
