History for Obama, as autopen used to sign Patriot Act extension into law

There are 96 comments on the www.examiner.com story from May 27, 2011, titled History for Obama, as autopen used to sign Patriot Act extension into law. In it, www.examiner.com reports that:

An autopen is a machine used to automatically sign a signature. You can probably imagine the usage, but just before the expiration of the Patriot Act at midnight, Thursday, U.S. President Barack Obama made history by using an autopen to sign the legislation extending the Patriot Act for four more years.

It probably has the letter O emblem on it with a half moon instead of stars.

I made a joke about him going to Ireland just to incite division and hate. Lo and behold, look what BO slyly snuck into his speech on the pretense that he is practicing his Irish.

"Some wise Irish man or woman once said that broken Irish is better than clever English.

(Applause.)

So here goes: TŠŠthas orm bheith in …irinn -- I am happy to be in Ireland!(Applause.) I'm happy to be with so many Š cairde.(Applause.)"

"When we strove to blot out the stain of slavery and advance the rights of man, we found common cause with your struggles against oppression."

Obama didn't blot out the stain of slavery. His Lua tribe ancestors used their own as slaves and sold them to Britain. He's harks from slave owners not the enslaved. His speech is heavy on the syrup and koolaid. He spoke as if he was more Irish than Reagan. This from someone who hated on his white side of the family, his grandmother and mother.

What a fink! He's 100% SOCIOPATHIC.

No whining, dear friend - I enjoy the ignorance and always wonder whether you people are prepubescent children, senile adults or in prison.

It is a fun guessing game.

Btw, we have moved on from the feather quill and ink!

The teabaggers have lost in New York, and they have nothing to criticize besides autopens, violations of the Queen's protocol, & assorted nonsense.

The brighter ones worry that they have nobody up to challenging the President in 2012, and that their Congress is on record voting to destroy Medicare.

As for 'ol PooPoo, he's trying to figure how to work the teabaggers into Memorial Day observances. Before long, their movement will be dead too...

Movement will be dead? Really? Since when is it a "movement?" I thought to you Demtards it was "insignificant" and "not a threat?" What happened??

And even the morons know Obama has absolutely no record of accomplishments to point to--A failed stimulus, double-digit unemployment, through-the-roof debt and deficit, record low number of business startups, Gitmo still open, Mired in 2 wars in 2 countries he promised to end, wants to ship $20 billion to the muslim brotherhood, not a single vote on his budget roflmao!!!

And the ryan budget would save medicare, not end it. The Republicans, thank god, are on record for trying to save it from certain bankruptcy under the Democrats plan--or non-plan. They don't have one--they'd just assume let it go bankrupt. Even Bill Clinton can't believe how stupid the Democrats are.

Now they will try to claim that the auto signature is unconstitutional and the extension was not signed in time.

Woof, So now we glimpse the truth. Obama's not a Democrat he's an Autocrat. His speeches are automatically delivered, he simply reads them from a machine. He now signs bills with an Autopen. What's next, Autoelections?

I suppose that we can look at this as some form of progress. We have a fully automated president whose speeches are electronically generated and who now, with the stroke of an electronic pen, can impose or extend questionable legislation from anywhere in the world. In the 2 1/2 years that Obama has been in office he has begun to lose the charisma and appeal that were his trademark during the 2008 campaign. This latest thing, with the automated, pen has underscored my growing impression that he is a high tech, robotic, pre-programmed entity, something like a "bionic Obama."

So he's pretty much got everything he needs except an automated machine to toast the Queen and another to flip burgers. He gets those he'll be set for life.

I don't like it. There is no guarantee that the President, no matter who it might be truly made and independent decision to sign.
