Skip to comments.Obama Hails The "Miami Heats" [Illiterate in Chief]
Posted on 06/27/2012 3:25:56 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
Unfazed by a partisan spat sparked by his comment on former Red Sox player Kevin Youkilis, President Obama tonight again opined on a professional sports team, publicly praising the NBA champion Miami Heat at a campaign fundraiser in the city.
The only problem this time was that Obama mispronounced the name of the team -referring to it as the "Miami Heats" in an apparent slip of the tongue.

Hey, cut The Prez some slack. Some months ago he also showed respect to a Navy Corpse-man. Gotta give him credit for that.
At least when Obama speaks about sports teams, he knows a little bit about the subject.
In everything elese he speaks on he doesn’t have a clue.
Obama does not make mistakes. It was the teleprompter.
This guy is an alien planted by the enemy. His arrogance has convinced him that he can act like a real American. The only ones clapping are his fellow travelers who are also alien to the American spirit and mindset.
Did anyone else see the press statment afterwards? They actually mentioned the Babe Ruth trade and Buckner's error in the '86 series.
Not an ebonic slip?
If the teleprompter script writers have any sense of duty to America, they would find passive ways to expose this alien day after day after day. It should not be too difficult to weave into speeches confounding words like Khe Sanh or corpseman.
His next speech to the Naval Academy should include the word forecastle.
He probably meant to say Hoodies.
He should’ve axed someone how to say it.
Or Candyland more likely.
Clearly the team acted too prematurely.
Teh WON does not make mistakes. Miami Heats it shall be.
Zippy talks like a alien, plays Basketball like a 8 year old, talks like an alien. He doesn’t even know anything about American Civics that an 8 year old would. Yet people clutch at that straw that he was born in Hawaii.
He didn’t screw up! There’s more than one player on the team! He was congratulating the whole team! The problem is EVERYONE ELSE who doesn’t understand that when there’s more than one, it’s plural! Geesh!
Obama real intent was to inject himself. He ment to say, “The Miami Cheats”.
Heats don’ fail me now.....
But he’s so COOL,right? Corpsemen? The more this guy talks, the more we see what a moron he is.
What, barock has no love for the Orlando Magics?
OH but I thought according to the MSM that our “heterosexual” president was a MAN’S MAN who chugs back beer and is the nation’s #1 sports fan. But yet every time, he speaks about sports he shows his complete misunderstanding of it. I will always remember the time when he was in the booth for the all star game and he said the White Sox played in Cominskey Park or when Joe Buck asked him who his favorite White Sox was and he couldn’t name one, he then sputterd out an answer that he grew up being an Oakland As fan. Goodbye to your fake sports pandering to cover up for your effeminate nature in a couple of months dumb ass, can’t wait to put adults back in charge again.
Kenyans don’t speak ebonics.
Hey, give the guy a break, will ya? He’s probably tired from having to campaign in 57 states, missing just one: Alaska and Hawaii.
Wait a minute. Alaska + Hawaii = 1 state?
Jeez, and they said “Dubya” was dumb???
Or the OKC Thunders?
I’m not so sure that Obama is knowledgeable when talking about sports.
He was talking to baseball announcers one day, and said the White Sox were his favorite team. But he couldn’t name a single favorite player, past or present.
And, he also at that time, said he went to games at old “Cominskey Park”, pronouncing it with an “N” in it. Every real baseball fan knows that the White Sox played at “Comiskey Park”, with no “N” in it.
In that case, he just showed his ignorance about baseball and the White Sox, rather than showing that he was a real fan of the team.
Just as a side note; as a life-long Sox fan myself, that was one of the happiest Obama stories I’d ever heard once it came out
I am far more concerned with his destructive policies than with slips of the tongue.
Think the point is these aren’t slips of the tongue. Indicative of a deeper issue that is part and parcel of his destructive policies.
That line will show up on DU and Huf'n'Puf, out of context, as an example of FR racism!
Don’t you know that Ubama is a great intellect?
Yep, by definition, it’s racist to poke fun at any of the foibles of Dear Leader.
I’m glad we still have freedom of speech in this country, and freedom of speech/expression on-line. Otherwise, I know I would be sent to re-education camp.
