all the president’s pens

March 2010: Why do presidents use so many pens to sign legislation? White House Staff Secretary Lisa Brown explains.

(Perry was wondering why so many pens are used to sign bills – this video provides the answer!)

    I heard somewhere that LBJ used like 65 pens when he signed the civil rights bill. I think that’s the record.

    May I just say how wonderfully professional Lisa Brown always looks? I’ve noticed her before at bill signings and always been impressed.

    That was very interesting. I am glad that they used part of his health care bill speech.
