The Official Seal of the Teleprompter of the United States

I was inspired by Rush Limbaugh’s personification of President Obama’s teleprompter. Thanks for rantwire for the Latin translation.

      Not at all! In fact, if I had thought of it, I would have done the same thing. Go for it!

  6. hoads says:

    Love it! “Repeat after me”, “I am in control” LMAOROTF:)

    Mike, I can’t wait till this design is released as a bumper sticker! (Please check out \

    BTW, has anyone noticed how effective humor is against Obama? The man lives for applause; anything less than complete adulation and he collapses.

  8. rantwire says:

    Change “Repeat after me” to “Revolvo Secundum Mihi” for the Latin translation, ala “e pluribus unum” statement.

    Change “I am in control to “EGO sum in imperium”.

    Use capitals or sentence case appropriately.

      Thank you for your comment. I had started looking for Latin phrases that would match but felt I just had to strike while the iron was hot. I will try to get that on the seal and see what happens.

      I thought about it, but just wanted to get it into blogosphere for the entertainment value at this point.

    Absolutely awesome, I almost fell off my chair!!! Hope you don’t mind I ripped it for my blog (credit given to you of course).

    You’ve got to get bumper stickers and T-shirts made. You’ll never have to work again!!

    1. mikemoody says:

      Thanks for the comment. Use it at will. I just think it is cool that the design is getting around.

    Great job, Mike. Say, you aren’t related to the Mike Moody who went to Paris American High School (the one in France) in 1965 are you?

    1. mikemoody says:

      Sorry no. As far as I know, all my family has been in the states since before the Civil War. But thanks for the interest.

  14. Rick says:

    Great design – did you use 57 stars on it, too?

    1. mikemoody says:

      No. But that is a great idea! I may need to include that on any further updates.

  15. Mark says:

    Kudos on the seal Mike!
    One of the funniest things I’ve seen in quite a long time!
    I read your invitation to post it elsewhere, so consider it done along with credits to you and a link to you site!
    I decided to use the version that is in English in deference to any Obama supporters who might see it.
    I would dearly hate for the meaning to be lost on those who need it most!

  16. Great job! I hope you will do more of these. How about Treasury Sec. Geithner’s image on the $11 bill?

    I love that seal. Have promoted it on my twitter account.

    What we need next is something on long the lines of the Church of TOTUS! We need a seal/image for that. This needs to be brought to the people all over the country.

    We have something great here.

    This is brilliant! Please take a look at our website, and watch our “Top 10 Problems with Traditional Teleprompters.” I think you’ll find several references in your seal illustration.

    We solve the problems our President is plagued with.

    I have a confession…. 2 years ago i printed this logo and stuck it on our CFO’s door. The company was Prompter People, who make most of the the Teleprompters sold in the US šŸ™‚ Mod, email me for a photo if you want, I have one lying around somewhere in Picasa I think. GRETA LOGO – thanks for a great laugh, especially as it was often our prompters!
