Seriously? You don’t know? That is an indictment on how little you know about the man.
I listen and think about what he is saying and why. Apparently you just want to tear him down, no matter what he says.
The President of the United States, the man we are supposed to believe is so worldly and wise actually thought “Austrian” was a language.
I believe that has been addressed sufficiently by others.
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.
I can see a few minor differences in academic accomplishments.
His lack of compassion?
My dog has compassion. Compassion =/= intelligence.
Who equated compassion with intelligence? I did not.
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.”
References? And I want all of them in toto, so that we can see the context in which they are made. You are the expert, enlighten us.
Where do you find indications of an “idiot”?
Puffing on cancer sticks counts as idiotic in my book.
I tend to agree with you on that point, but at least it is legal, unlike cocaine.
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!
Ah, so now you are an expert in phonetics as well. When he said that word, did he spell it out?
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.”
Yes, he made a mistake and corrected himself. Sioux City is in fact in Iowa.
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!”
Florida is the “sunshine state”. Ooops, Obama left off “state”. What blunder!!!!
Obama gets confused between Iran and Iraq. Obama has also confused Iraq for Afghanistan.
reference link? Again, please provide the entire text, so that we can see the context.
Obama said his uncle “…was part of the first American troops to go into Auschwitz and liberate the concentration camps.”
Soviet troops liberated Auschwitz.
omg, Obama gave his uncle credit for being part of the liberation effort of Auschwitz. How misleading! He must have had some nefarious purpose in generalizing something that happened 65 years ago. Obama baaaaaad!!!
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.
And those are not Arabic languages which require translation?
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.”
Yes why talk, we should just “nuke em all”.
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.
Referene link of the entire speech please. IMO, you completely missed the point of that remark. Who is Barack Obama Jr.?
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.
He should have donned a hard hat and evaluated the site personally. Then he would have had first hand “knowledge” of Hanford and would have voted against this defense authorization? Is that what you are saying here?
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.]
And? Perhaps he was acknowledging the vets in their wheelchairs who had given all but their lives. I am sure they understood.
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.
Seems a perfectly well constructed sentence. Did Obama cite election dates? Or was he referring to Chavez tantrums later. You should read that sentence again.
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.]
I see, Foreign Policy cannot exceed the term of the president in office. A whole new approach to Foreign relations. Every promise or treaty made by a president is good only for the duration of his term in office. That will really instill trust in the commitments made by the US. Good thinking.
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.
reference link please, with full text of the speech for context.
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.
Reference links please.
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?
Oh yes, Youtube must be scrutinized by the president of the US for “truth”. Gimme a break!
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.”
Oh how stupid, movies are never shot on-site, but always in a studio. Just like “Apocalypse now” How could Obama not know?!!!!!!!!
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.
So lets drop this autism research thing altogether, why don’t we.
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.”
Ah, I forgot, you are also an expert in foreign relations and “public statements vs quiet diplomacy” when negotiating with antagonistic leaders.
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.”
a) Does Iran pose an immediate threat to the US? No
b) Does Iran pose a threat in the future? Yes.
Obama called for the UN to pass a Resolution condemning Russia. Russia has UNSC Veto Power.
So? The point was made. If the US had not raised the issue, you would have condemned him for “cowardice”.
Obama tried to walk through a window of the house he lives in.
Obama ran into something at home??????? This is too much Rocinante, even for you.
Obama called Ottawa, “Iowa.”
reference link with complete text please.
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.
A misspeak, but you seem to have understood the meaning of what he was saying.
