Barack Obama blunders again on the world stage (MSM black out)
The Telegraph ^ | November 19, 2012 | Nile Gardiner

Posted on 11/20/2012 7:15:14 AM PST by yoe

It is only two weeks since his re-election, and his second term remains two months away, but Barack Obama is already blundering again on the world stage, with the kind of gaffes that would have been plastered on the front page of The New York Times if they had been committed by George W. Bush when he was in the White House. Obama's first term was littered with foreign policy gaffes, and there is every chance the second term will be more of the same.

On his trip to Asia this week, President Obama struggled to pronounce the name of Aung San Suu Kyi, the most prominent human rights activist in the world. As The Associated Press reports (hat tip: Drudge Report):

As Obama stood next to the world's most recognized democracy icon, he mispronounced her name repeatedly.

Ever gracious, Suu Kyi did not correct her American guest for calling her Aung YAN Suu Kyi multiple times during his statement to reporters after their meeting.

Proper pronunciation for the Nobel laureate's name is Ahng Sahn Soo Chee.

Watch how Obama hangs onto her hand for the photo-op on way over to where he will speak....in pictures yesterday, Obama doesn't just air kiss her cheeks, he manhandles her in an embrace! Smoking choom? or just no class. Obama's lack of dignity is appalling.

The Amateur was a very aptly titled book about Obama. 4 years in and he’s STILL in way over his head. As an American citizen, this inept performance makes me embarrassed for our nation.

Watch the expression on her face as he keeps mispronouncing his name. She’s practically rolling her eyes wondering how this bozo got to be elected leader of the free world.

******“wondering how this bozo got to be elected leader of the free world.”
We all are. **********

We built that -- American Conservatives

While we were preaching to friends on our favorite blogs and forwarding email jokes about Obama or OWS, liberals were registering new voters and indoctrinating our kids and grand kids in government schools that they control from coast to coast.

If just one out of five voters that voted for Palin/McCain had invested enough time to recruit one single new conservative voter Mitt Romney could have won by over 10 MILLION votes.

With America [still] being the beacon of hope for the entire world we could have made a real difference all around the globe by working at this as if it meant something very serious. Those that did deserve huge amounts of credit and sincere apologies from those who used emails blogs and face book to urge others to get busy.

When history records the demise of America, the tag line will be, "They didn't appreciate what they had and didn't want to preserve it badly enough."

Not much of a gaffe considering he's bringing the USofA down.That, I consider a "gaffe".

Jeez, I wouldn't know how to pronounce the name either.

Bigger fish to fry than this stuff.

And people who still worship him, and that includes many veterans, think obama is not responsible for anything bad that happens. There are 60,000,000 or more retards voting in this country. And I refuse to associate with any of them on a personal level. I have no choice when it comes to the public.

Obama has never actually functioned as “the elected leader of the free world”.More like the “un-elected leader of the UnFree World.He has always seemed to me as nothing more than an emmisary for the collective ambitions, desires, and aspirations of a whole bunch of nations and cultures NOT OUR OWN.THEY proposed him, gave him the Nobel Peace Prize just to get the ball rolling, dared us to deny his greatness, and we were too weak, unimaginative,and lazy to do anything but submit.

>"WHY did Obama just let them DIE?"

He didn't just "Let" them die. He had front row seats to watch them die.

There was a mention in the NYT. Of course he only *appeared* to mispronounce Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi’s name. lol. Reporters must be equally inept and ignorant.

“Obama struggled to pronounce the name of Aung San Suu Kyi...”

He’s so brilliant, so smart, has so many synapses going off at the same time, that he occassionally is allowed to have his mouth become disconnected from his brilliant,
really-really smart, genetically superior, intensely brilliant, cosmic genius.

Ya know?

/S/

IMHO

“Heah, he’s so smart we’re not worthy of seeing his college grades.”

We don’t need to see his college grades.

We have been assured by the commissars in the mainstream media that he is the most brilliant person ever to have
held the Presidency.

Dontcha know?

IMHO
