Seriously? You don’t know? That is an indictment on how little you know about the man.
The President of the United States, the man we are supposed to believe is so worldly and wise actually thought “Austrian” was a language.
Even if Obame misspoke, what do you find idiotic about him? His lack of schooling?
Obama went to Harvard. Bush went to Yale. If you accept the former is intelligent just because he went to school you must accept the latter is intelligent for the same reason.
His lack of compassion?
My dog has compassion. Compassion =/= intelligence.
His calm and reasoned demeanor.
Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”
Obama: “Get in Their Faces!”
Obama: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
Obama: “Hit Back Twice As Hard”
Obama: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“
Obama: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat”
Obama: “It’s time to Fight for it.”
Obama: “Punish your enemies.”
Obama: “I’m itching for a fight.”
Where do you find indications of an “idiot”?
Puffing on cancer sticks counts as idiotic in my book.
What about Obama’s calling a Corpsman a “Corpse Man” at the National Prayer Breakfast. The man is the freaking Commander in Chief for crying out loud!
Obama says he has been to 57 U.S. states.
Obama, while in South Dakota, called Sioux Falls ‘Sioux City’ and then said, “I’ve been in Iowa for too long.”
Obama, while in Florida said, “How’s it going, Sunshine? Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you everybody. It’s good to be in Sunshine!”
Obama gets confused between Iran and Iraq. Obama has also confused Iraq for Afghanistan.
Obama said his uncle “…was part of the first American troops to go into Auschwitz and liberate the concentration camps.”
Soviet troops liberated Auschwitz.
Obama said, “We only have a certain number of . . . [Arabic language translators], and if they are all in Iraq, then it’s harder for us to use them in Afghanistan.”
The man who made ending these wars one of his main running points doesn’t know Afghanis speak Pashto, Farsi, or other non-Arabic languages.
Obama said, “I trust the American people to understand that it is not weakness, but wisdom to talk . . . to our enemies, like Roosevelt did, and Kennedy did, and Truman did.”
FDR did not talk directly with any enemy axis powers before the outbreak of hostilities, and his policy once war began was their unconditional surrender.
Truman kept FDR’s policy for WWII.
Truman did not meet unconditionally with Kim Il Sung. Truman sent troops.
Kennedy said of his meeting with Kruschev, “He beat the hell out of me.” The Berlin Wall started being built 2 months later. The Cuban Missile Crisis soon followed. New York Times columnist James Resto said, “Khrushchev decided he was dealing with an inexperienced young leader who could be intimidated and blackmailed.”
Obama said, “There was something stirring across the country because of what happened in Selma, Ala., because some folks are willing to march across a bridge. So they got together and Barack Obama Jr. was born.”
Obama was born in 1961. The Selma March took place in 1965.
Obama said, “I’m not familiar with the Hanford, uuuuhh, site, so I don’t know exactly what’s going on there.”
Obama had already voted on a defense-authorization bill that addressed the “costs, schedules, and technical issues” dealing with the Hanford site, the nation’s most contaminated nuclear-waste site.
Obama said, “On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes—and I see many of them in the audience here today—our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.”[Emphasis added.]
Obama said, “Since the Bush Administration launched a misguided war in Iraq, its policy in the Americas has been negligent toward our friends, ineffective with our adversaries. . .No wonder, then, that demagogues like Hugo Chávez have stepped into this vacuum.
Chávez was first elected president in 1998, and reelected in 2000, both occurring while Bill Clinton was serving his second term as President.
On CBS’s Face the Nation, then Sen. Barack Obama, in Afghanistan, told the paparazzi-pursued correspondent Lara Logan that “the objective of this trip was to have substantive discussions with people like President Karzai or Prime Minister Maliki or President Sarkozy or others who I expect to be dealing with over the next eight to 10 years.” [Read the Constitution to know why this is stupid.]
Obama said tornadoes in Kansas killed 10,000 people saying, “In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died — an entire town destroyed.”
12 people died in the tornadoes.
Obama said, “…more young black men languish in prison than attend colleges and universities.”
There are more than twice as many black men ages 18 to 24 in college as there are in jail.
Obama told Larry King on CNN, “We don’t have the technical capacity to create something like that,” referring to an anti-Hillary YouTube doctored ad based on the classic Apple Macintosh “1984” ad.
Who the hell did it then? Aliens?
While visiting Mount Rushmore Senator Obama, asked about the chase scene in Hitchcock’s North by Northwest asking, “How did they get up there in the first place?” he asked ranger Wesley Jensen.
Movies are just pretend. Jensen said of the movie with 1950s special effect, “They didn’t. It was a movie set.”
Obama said, “We’ve seen just a skyrocketing autism rate. Some people are suspicious that it’s connected to the vaccines…The science right now is inconclusive, but we have to research it.”
The science is conclusive. Nineteen scientific studies have all refuted any causal connection between vaccines and autism.
Obama said he wants to meet with Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chávez to discuss Chávez’s support of Marxist FARC terrorists in Colombia.
Obama insisted (the very next day) any country supporting FARC terrorists should suffer “regional isolation.”
Obama said, “[Iran doesn’t] pose a serious threat to us.”
Obama said (the very next day), “I’ve made it clear for years that the threat from Iran is grave.”
Obama called for the UN to pass a Resolution condemning Russia.
Russia has UNSC Veto Power.
Obama called Ottawa, “Iowa.”
Obama said, “What you’re now seeing is, profit and earning ratios are starting to get to the point where buying stocks is a potentially good deal if you’ve got a long term perspective on it,”
“P/E Ratio” means “price-to-earnings ratio,” not “profit and earnings ratio.” There is a difference.
In one of his many diplomatic blunders, Obama gave UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown a chinsey gift of a couple dozen U.S. movies on DVD.
Besides being a diplomatic no-no, U.S. coded DVDs don’t play in British DVD players.
Pointing out his own Secretary of Defense, Obama said, “William Gates.”
His name is Robert Gates.
At a burger joint Obama said to a government worker, “So explain to me exactly what this National Geospatial…uh,”
“We work with, uh, satellite imagery,” the worker replied.
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) is a Department of Defense combat support agency and a member of the national Intelligence Community (IC). Apparently Obama, the Commander-in-Chief, never heard of it.
Obama said, “And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslims Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.”
Using the highest possible estimate of 8 million Muslims in the U.S., even then it would barely put the U.S. in the top 40 of Muslim nations.
In 2009, Obama wrote to Jacques Chirac, former French president, “I am certain that we will be able to work together, in the coming four years, in a spirit of peace and friendship to build a safer world.”
As of 2007 Nicolas Sarkozy became the president of France.
Thought Experiment Time. Had Bush made up a non-existent language or done any of the above, would you call him “stupid” or just come up with some special pleading excuses?
