  • Obama's 'Incredible Mistake' over Phantom Kosovo Referendum

    Breitbart - London ^ | 27 Mar 2014, 4:34 AM PDT | Raheem Kassam and Andre Walker
    U.S. President Barack Obama has caused confusion after claiming yesterday that Kosovo held a UN-assisted referendum for self-determination – misleading people over the true origins of the country. The U.S. President used the example to hit out against Russia's annexation of Crimea, but experts have noted that no such referendum took place, and implied that Obama's "incredible mistake" should elicit a retraction or correction from the White House. The error came in a speech delivered at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, and has been remarked upon to Breitbart London by regional experts from both the United Kingdom and indeed...

    Speaking at the press conference after the EU-US summit yesterday the US President wrongly suggested that Georgia "is not currently on a path to NATO membership". In fact the country has been on the path to membership since 2008. At the North Atlantic Council in Bucharest that year the attending Heads of State and Government agreed the following statement: "NATO welcomes Georgia’s Euro-Atlantic aspirations for membership in NATO. We agreed today that they will become members of NATO." Former Georgian Ambassador to London Giorgi Badridze, told Breitbart London: "President Obama's remarks could hardly have come at a worse time –...

    President Obama spoke about respect when talking about Aretha Franklin’s famed “RESPECT” song Thursday night at the White House, but he clearly failed to show her that same respect when he spelt the name of her hit song wrong. The White House hosted soul singers for a concert, including Aretha Franklin, who performed at the President’s 2009 Inauguration, Patti LaBelle, and Ariana Grande. President Obama told the crowd, “When Aretha first told us what R-S-P-E-C-T meant to her…” The crowd roared in laughter before allowing the President to finish his introduction.

Then imagine that that movement grew in numbers to the point where it could elect its own bought-and-paid-for politicians to do its bidding. Who knows how much havoc it could wreak?

    Somebody should tell President Obama to forget the folksy metaphors. The prez sounds phony mouthing them, and since they are unfamiliar to him, he's apt to get them wrong. As was the case at today's townhall at Binghamton University, when Obama claimed that reducing spending on government programs would be "like eating your corn seed." You might have thought the man from Illinois would have known that the phrase is "eating your seed corn." Then again, they don't raise much maize in Hyde Park. For good measure, Obama assured the audience that "we don't have an urgent deficit crisis." Let...

    SNIP SNIP The narrative here would seem to be that Obama is dumb and doesn’t even know basic geography. But no one really believes that and even Obama’s most ardent critics have never questioned his intelligence. Instead of the hapless dunce in the mold of liberals’ anti-Bush caricatures, conservatives see Obama as a conniving radical. Or an out-of-touch, former law professor, ivory tower elitist. Either way, not dumb. Ted Cruz said today that he modeled his campaign after Obama’s because it was so smart and effective. Meanwhile, “downplaying the threat of terrorism” is plainly not a gaffe — it’s an...

ABC’s Good Morning America, CBS’s This Morning and NBC’s Today show, on Wednesday morning, all bypassed the chance to criticize Obama for: downplaying the threat of terrorism; falsely claiming Vladimir Putin once ran the KGB; placing the Atlantic coast cities of Savannah, Charleston, and Jacksonville on the Gulf of Mexico; confusing the Winter Olympics with the Summer Olympics.

Obama is believed to have placed Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine, on a shortlist of candidates to replace Louis Susman, who this week confirmed he was stepping down as US envoy to the Court of St. James. Conservative critics described the potential appointment of Wintour, whose only political experience is raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for Obama’s re-election campaign, as “ludicrous” and “a non-starter”. …

    Gov. Mitt Romney finishes up his overseas trip to Britain, Israel and Poland this week. The trip began inauspiciously, due to what some called Romney’s “gaffe” about the London Olympic Games. “There are a few things that were disconcerting,” said Romney, who organized the Salt Lake Games in 2002, when asked about London’s preparations. That rather bland remark—which turned out to be at least partly accurate, as ticket and transportation problems have plagued the Games—became the narrative for most major media outlets. But if anyone cares to know what a gaffe really looks and sounds like, consider President Barack Obama’s...

Beneath the visage of a cosmetically populist, post-racial, post-partisan reformer who wants to “perfect” America and to have “millionaires and billionaires” “pay their fair share” is just another condescending, self-important, sarcastic, academic liberal Democrat, who believes in false consciousness and in scholastic theories that success in life can be attributed to birth or luck or community but not to individual effort and grit.

John McCain, R-Ariz., ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, told Greta Van Susteren on Fox News Channel that the unauthorized disclosures of classified information are "the most egregious breach of national security" he ever has seen. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., chairwoman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, told reporters this week, "The accelerating pace of such disclosures, the sensitivity of the matters in question and...

    So the smarest man in the room believes there are 57 states and the USA has 2 per-cent of oil reserves. The Obama pattern of embarrassing gaffes never end. For the last four years we have heard and/or seen so many moments of utter embarrasment by Senator and President Obama, it makes you wonder how he ever got elected. We need to expand the government sector to boost the private sector and the economy? Does Obama actually think that most Americans are that dumbfounded?

    The Obama administration, in its never-ending quest to embarrass itself and America, has insulted one of the pivotal figures in ending Communism in Europe, Lech Walesa: According to the Wall Street Journal, Polish officials requested that Walesa accept the Medal of Freedom on behalf of Jan Karski, a member of the Polish Underground during World War II who was being honored posthumously this week. The request makes sense. Walesa and Karski shared a burning desire to rid Poland of tyrannical subjugation. But President Obama said no. Administration officials told the Journal that Walesa is too “political.” A man who was...

    The president referred to “Polish death camps” while awarding a posthumous Medal of Freedom to Polish professor Jan Karski, a hero of the anti-Nazi resistance. Poles believe they're blamed unfairly for the Nazi Holocaust, and the Foreign Minister led the outrage in a late night tweet. The remark, which barely drew notice in America, is all over the Polish news today. On the country's largest television station:

    Move over, Ashton Kutcher — President Barack Obama is the new "master Tweeter." In an exchange at the end of this week's White House West Wing Week video, Obama jokingly refers to himself as the "twoosh master" after crafting a perfect 140-character tweet. Obama became the first sitting president to hold a Twitter question and answer session Thursday after a campaign event in Des Moines, Iowa. During the session, he responded to a question from @jwarner180 on alternative energy sources using each of Twitter's 140 allowed characters, which he's told in the video is called a "twoosh," or "Twitter swoosh."...

    In two campaign speeches over the last two days, President Barack Obama has twice mistakenly mentioned "my sons"ť when defending his administration's regulation requiring virtually all health-care plans in the United States to provide women, without any fees or co-pay, with sterilizations and all Food and Drug Administration-approved contraceptives, including those that can cause abortions. Obama, of course, has two daughters--10-year-old Sasha and 13-year-old Malia--but no sons. On Monday, 43 Catholic dioceses and organizations across the country--including the archdioceses of New York and Washington, D.C. and the University of Notre Dame and Catholic University of America—filed 12 different lawsuits against...
