Steyn on Obama speech:ĎYou canít pass a teleprompter. Itís not in the U.S. Constitution'
The Daily Caller ^ | September 9, 2011 | Jeff Poor

Apparently President Barack Obama’s speechwriters thought repeating the phrase “pass this bill” over and over again would magically resonate with members of Congress. The president used the line 17 times in his Thursday night address.

Did he overdo it?

On Friday’s “Rush Limbaugh Show,” fill-in host Mark Steyn said that catchphrase was more reminiscent of an infomercial than a presidential proclamation.

Haha meet Barack Obama...the new Billy Mays! Steyn is such a great Rush fill-in, I hope he gets his own show one day soon.

"Pass this Bill now..."

He forgot to repeat, "But wait....there's MORE".

from The Speech last night:

“What kind of country would this be if this chamber had voted down Social Security or Medicare just because it violated some rigid idea about what government could or could not do?”

A country not trillions in debt with millions totally dependent on government and the U.S. on the downward spiral?

"rigid idea"= Silly , old Constitution.

Despite Obama’s pleas to “pass this bill,” there is no bill. Steyn says this presents a problem.

This is key. This is like when obamma called on Congress to pass a recent trade bill, and his administration has never sent it to Congress, which cannot act upon it until it is sent over. obamma still have not sent it over. The union forbade obamma to do do.

If he did, I’d tune in. I happened to be traveling and heard some of the show today where he dealt with Rene, who was upset that Steyn was mocking Obama.

Good stuff.

Steyn was nothing less than brilliant today. For me, he is the only sub that is equal to Rush, different, but equal.

A good bumper sticker, "OB's promter is STUCK ON STUPID".

Mark Steyn does have a wonderful way with words—unlike Nobama.
