With typical British understatement, it has been noted that:
"It is rather embarrassing, as well as sad, that the leader of the free
world can’t even pronounce the name of the most famous human rights
activist on the planet. Or that he is so quick to appease Burma’s
authoritarian regime by calling it “Myanmar”."
"Barack Obama’s gaffes
[Ed note: I actually don't think that they are gaffes at all, they are absolutely reflective of his mentality and wrong-headed, feckless policies] demonstrate not only a marked lack of attention to detail and a high
degree of amateurishness on the part of the White House, but also a
disturbing willingness to curry favour with unsavoury regimes. Hardly a
good omen for Obama’s second term."
The devastating part of this is that Mr. Obama is not embarrassed. Nor is any member of his team!
Good omens for a second Obama term?
There is no such thing, other than good blogging material.
BTW: Have you seen who the Obama team is made up of?
Good lord. Just what America needs. A crew of overweight, blubber-assed lefty freaks running the country.
PAGING MAYOR BLOOMBERG, PAGING MAYOR BLOOMBERG, please pick up the obese leftist courtesy help phone in the main lobby.
