    I've seen what's in the speech. Better put a diaper on this teleprompter.

    White House press release: "President Obama announced he has directed one of his most trusted officials to take charge and mobilize all available government resources to effectively and expeditiously clean this blight on the American landscape."

    Here, let me wipe off that sentence. I don't like how that's worded.

    Got to get the this thing spotless or Obama might have to read his announcement from his palms.

    President Obama: Let's be clear, I want to be clear, transparent if you will.

    Got to make sure the president can read this. OOP's I think I erased the message.

    The White House cleans up after Biden's assorted F-bombs.

    Setting up sound system for personnel announcement. A reincarnated Robert Palmer comes back to sing "Doctor, Doctor, Give Me The News...", and Bon Jovi throttles "Bad Medicine", because Medicare/Medicaid has been a headless horseman, without a leader. The President appears, during a recess, and quickly installs a Berwick device, to save the day, then vanishes. Hey, wasn't that The Lone Ranger, and we forgot to thank him.

    A White House staffer takes measures to make certain that President Obama delivers a 'clean speech' in the East Room.

    If I scrub hard enough I was told 90% of this will be clean be the end of summer.

    Answering a question from a reporter, a staffer says" yeah ,I guess they
    have me on housekeeping duties but look at it this way, they could have sent me to the Gulf to pick up tar balls."

    Timmy the Teleprompter gets a wipe down after some especially tough questions left him sweating. Mickey the Mike waits his turn.

    For this I went to 4 years of Harvard, got a Masters in Poli Sci from Princeton, and am working on my law degree from Georgetown??? Maybe I should reconsider my future.

    Setting up a congressional recess slight-of-hand trick. When the president raises the cloth, with slit-second timing, he performs a very technical proceedure, installing a doctor,,..without hearing....a sound. Brilliant.

    You can't wipe off the words. You know that right?

    Another first, the President wants to watch the World Cup on the Teleprompter.

    President Obama doesn't need to write on his hand. He's got this instead.

    Be a little pessimistic is never bad – helps to act with caution.

    Ah! So this is what is looks like when a man does "House" work.

    People, stop using Wite-Out on the teleprompter.

    Could you give us some guidance as to what our course of action should be?

    Note to self: when speech writing, use fewer words with p's and s's.

    As you can see there's nothing behind this sheet.....Voila! The spill is clean, the immigration issues are solved, the economy is fixed and the teleprompter is now a dove.
