AutoPrez?

Apparently President Obama didn't actually sign the four-year extension of the Patriot Act. After all, he's in Europe. It would be inconvenient.

Instead, he authorized having it signed by the Autopen, which is used to reproduce his signature on things like letters from the White House.

Making history. Indeed.

Inquiring minds begin to wonder: We've got the TOTUS (Teleprompter Of The United States) and the ASSUS (Automatic Signature Signer of the United States) on this side of the Atlantic.

Maybe Obama could just stay in Europe, and leave TOTUS and ASSUS to run things over here?

  1. No such luck. He will come back to lead us down the path.

  2. He (our president) can't be in all places, at all times...other "prez" have done the same. It's a job I would never want. Whether I am Democrat or Republican or whatever, I give each credit for what they try to do. They/he isn't making all these decisions on their own...they are led by so many we don't see behind the scenes. Obama took over at such a critical time and he's being blamed for most of it. What has taken us years to get into, will also take years to get out of. I think each president has done as much as they can.
