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.

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.
