Yeah, well, Karma’s a b*tch.

Obaman refused to go to Mineral during his campaign swing through Virginia. Virginia requested FEMA aid for Mineral - hit by earthquake and 40+ aftershocks, Hurricane Irene, and tornados last weekend. FEMA denied the request. The governor suggested Zero tour the damage area. Zero refused. TOTUS is now MIA.

Like I said, karma is a b*tch.

An Obama Teleprompter is missing

“Sources said inside that vehicle was about $200,000 worth of sound equipment, several podiums and presidential seals, behind which only the President himself can stand.

They told NBC12 around 12:30 Monday afternoon that truck was recovered in the parking lot of the Holiday Inn Express near the airport and hotel staff confirm police activity. One guest we spoke with said he saw various law enforcement agencies examining a white box truck parked there.”

Just like Air Force One, they have a backup TOTUS just in case.

Do not worry Citizens, the voice of the People will not be silenced for long.

This could result in a terrible speech impediment. Possibly stammering, nervous twitches, and repeating himself.

Many of the items in that truck are put in close proximity to POTUS. Sure they are set up and surely inspected ahead of time but why would the Secret Service leave them unguarded for a moment?
