  • All presidents do that. I don't know why. Maybe they sell them or give them away for the novelty of it?

  • I just figured it was to make the process a bit longer and more involved?

  • So he can say "That's not my signature!" later on when things go south on the Healthcare bill. He can psyche people that he didn't even sign it! LMAO!

  • Guess what...that is a tradition that ALL Presidents carry out. I have seen that on TV since I was a teen in the 1950's. It is nothing new.

    One will goto ACORN, one to the SEIU, one to Soros..... If he runs out of pens, I can totally see him auctioning them off to the highest bidder... lol

    I guess that means that ALL Presidents use several pens for a publicity stunt? Even Reagan and Bush?Is that what you are syaing? Because they ALL have used several pens when signing bills, etc. I recall watching JFK and even Ike sign during segments while I watched the nightly news. Anyway......
