...when he is out of Country?

How about using a machine?


WARSAW, Poland - Forget what you learned in civics class back in high school. It turns out a bill doesn't have to be signed by the president to become law. A machine can sign it for him.

Pres. Obama was 3,700 miles from the White House at the G8 Summit in Deauville, France, when Congress voted final passage of a bill to extend the life of three expiring provisions of the Patriot Act, provisions deemed important by the president.

There was no way to get the bill signed by Mr. Obama in France before the Thursday midnight deadline, so aides say he authorized his staff secretary to use the "autopen" to sign the bill for him.

"Failure to sign this legislation poses a significant risk to U.S. national security," said Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest. "Congress approved the extension, and the president directed the use of the autopen to sign it."

This will allow the biggest Obama koolaid drinkers out there to sleep at night, knowing that The Messiah actually didn't sign such a horrible immoral bill that tramples on the Constitution.

teleprompter... auto-pen??

Bush may have told a few staff to take an eight year vacation.... but so far we have a so called president on an extended vacation...

but thanks to his transparency, we know who is minding the store... the teleprompter and auto-pen.. at least they kept Biden away from the "stuff in charge"..
