Poll: What was the Obamateurism of the week?

posted at 9:00 am on February 28, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

It’s that time again, when we have to pick the Obamateurism of the Week.  Don’t think of it as a chore, like taking out the garbage before sending important guests out the door; think of it as a state of mind, even if it’s the wrong state.  The important thing is to take credit for being productive with this poll while complaining that nothing ever actually gets done.  Just keep everyone focused on you, so that when you tell a story that exposes your ignorance of a subject on which you claim mastery, you’ll still look … amateurish.

Previous 2010 “winners”:

Got an Obamateurism of the Day? If you see a foul-up by Barack Obama, e-mail it to me at obamaisms@edmorrissey.com with the quote and the link to the Obamateurism. I’ll post the best Obamateurisms on a daily basis, depending on how many I receive. Include a link to your blog, and I’ll give some link love as well. And unlike Slate, I promise to end the feature when Barack Obama leaves office.

Going with the smart power Dalai Lama move.

rob verdi on February 28, 2010 at 9:05 AM

Oh, Acme Insurance. Hands down. That quote blew me away.

Here, let’s have it again:

When I was young, just got out of college, I had to buy auto insurance. I had a beat-up old car. And I won’t name the name of the insurance company, but there was a company — let’s call it Acme Insurance in Illinois. And I was paying my premiums every month. After about six months I got rear-ended and I called up Acme and said, I’d like to see if I can get my car repaired, and they laughed at me over the phone because really this was set up not to actually provide insurance; what it was set up was to meet the legal requirements. But it really wasn’t serious insurance.

I never get tired of that…

S. Weasel on February 28, 2010 at 9:06 AM

I guess if his lips move ,the statement either comes with an expiration date or is complete lunacy.

Hadn’t heard the ACME Insurance lie yet.

His company would have repaired his car, charging him his deductible, then subrogated against the other driver’s company to recover their loss and his deductible.

Or the other company woulda paid everything.

Doesn’t IL have an insurance commissioner? A reporter oughta follow up to see if such insurance has ever been sold in IL: insurance that doesn’t pay claims where the liability is crystal clear, like a rear-end hit.

Why didn’t he sue?

I think Obama and the Turban ( Tort reform will cause 4800 deaths per year ) had a central theme…… ” Death Panels ”
Obama most likely had Liability insurance….the automobile insurance equivalent of a ” Death Panel ”
Fortunately we live in America , and our astute Media pointed out the hypocrisy ( After all it is only a death panel if a conservative speaks of it ) .
To bad Stupak and Palin were not invited to the Obamamercial( at least we did hear from Charlie ” I kinda forgot all those assets ” Rangel

Impeachment is not supposed to be a makeshift recall procedure. If you want to recall Ogabe, amend the constitution to insert a recall procedure.

If you want to impeach Ogabe, then find a crime he’s committed (which shouldn’t be too hard; the Walpin firing might qualify).

The Dalai Lame episode, because Obama is soooo into improving American image abroad.

I went with his gross misunderstanding of auto insurance. The depths of his misunderstanding of so many fundamental things far surpasses the average idiot liberal.

backwoods conservative on February 28, 2010 at 9:20 AM

though I thought the Dalai Lama incident was beyond the pale (like so many other horrid foreign policy rudenesses), I voted for the insurance story.

as former insurance agent, I explained liability ins & physical damage coverages to people for years. even 16 year olds got it. but i chalk it up to the superior mind of the Bubba.

kelley in virginia on February 28, 2010 at 9:22 AM

Or,he only had liability insurance on his car — not collision. It’s not at all unusual to forego collision on a “beat up old car”. And people called Bush stupid.

but back to the insurance thing: we’ve mentioned before that Bambi doesn’t seem to have any underlying “Americanist” beneath that arrogant stance.

there are so many “little” things he doesn’t get. and liability insurance is just one of them. they teach it in high school.

IrishEi on February 28, 2010 at 9:40 AM

“They wouldn’t pay just because I didn’t have the right kind of policy.”

Yes, Barry, insurance companies tend to be unwilling to pay out claims on policies you don’t actually have. So if, for example, you buy a liability-only policy because you’re driving an old clunker, then you can’t expect the insurance company to pay for your collision damage.

I realize it’s a very complicated concept for a brilliant Harvard-trained lawyer to understand, but maybe you can read up on it when you’re not too busy with something more important . . . like picking your nose or something.

tim c on February 28, 2010 at 9:09 AM

The sad fact is, we are experiencing an “on the job vetting process” that daily exposes a president that may have never made it through the primaries had the national media not been enamored with a smooth talking community organizer with questionable skills.

Impeachment is not an option, (without an egregious criminal act), The best remedy available is to take back both the House and Senate, rendering the president to a lame duck status until 2012.

sidenote: I firmly believe that however this health care bill gets rammed into law—and the mandate language is still in the bill—it will be legally challenged in the courts as uncontstitutional.

This guy is clean, articulate and STUPID. This is much worse than misspelling potato or not knowing the price of a loaf of bread. Those were press club gotchas. Not knowing squat about insurance is self imposed stupidization. Especially when you want to convince someone you know how to reform the insurance industry. Pure B*** SH*****!

Red Bennet on February 28, 2010 at 9:58 AM

I was embarrassed and disgusted that he sent the Dalai Lama out the back door past the garbage (Out the back, Wu! /Al) but his ignorance as to how insurance actually works was very revealing. What a dummy.

Picking his booger and flipping off Paul Ryan (scary!) during the Big Medical System Show should also have been options. Really, there was enough fodder for an Obamateurism poll on the Big Medical System Show only.

Classy guy, our president! Dude wasn’t raised right.

Rae on February 28, 2010 at 9:59 AM

I was torn between the Dalai Lama trash-up and the insurance quote and went with the Dalai Lama because as they say, “a picture is worth a thousand words”. Most people have quit listening to Obama and so probably aren’t affected by what he says, but that picture sure says volumes.

texabama on February 28, 2010 at 10:01 AM

After the 2010 elections would impeachment be an option?

tim c on February 28, 2010 at 9:09 AM

Impeachment doesn’t work. Bill Clinton proved that. Not only was Clinton impeached, he was found ‘guilty’. Yet he ignored that and the will of the people, and went on to finish out his presidency. To this day he doesn’t consider it to have been a serious enough issue to have even warranted the impeachment trial.

Obama’s of the same narcissistic mold, and would turn any kind of impeachment trial into a three ring circus heavily painted in racial overtones. It would be a disaster. I’m afraid we’re sorta stuck with Obama until 2012.

KendraWilder on February 28, 2010 at 10:01 AM

I’m confused as to why him dressing down Senator McCain wouldn’t be on a weekly list of Obamateurisms. Or do we now just pass all moments of his narcissism as normal President Obama behavior?

“Acme insurance” probably deserves to win, but I was so offended by the treatment of the Dalai Lama That I had to vote for that one.

novaculus on February 28, 2010 at 10:04 AM

I had to go with the Acme Insurance anecdote, since he exposed his ignorance regarding insurance in general(even though health insurance is supposed to be his “signature issue”), on national TV, all while thinking he was making a point that was helpful to his cause. Plus, he proved he did not bother to read his auto insurance policy, or even pay any attention to what his insurance agent told him. Pretty good for a Harvard grad.

If the government had forced him to buy a gold-plated, one-size-fits-all policy which made no economic sense, he wouldn’t have been able to drive at all.

Or I suppose the government could have done something completely crazy, like take over the insurance companies, and the car companies, too, for that matter. Oh, wait…

I didn’t say how he was going to be slid that direction. Though the implication is he won’t have a choice if he wants to look like he can get anything done. It will be his choice as to whether or not he becomes a lame duck. He made statement after statement about how partisan politics were going to change. Of course, we know how that’s working out. He’s going to have to move toward the center though if he even wants a snowball’s chance in hell of getting re-elected.

backwoods conservative on February 28, 2010 at 9:52 AM

This semi-phony story reveals more about Obama than perhaps he’d like.

The basic storyline is always the same– honest, innocent, virtuous,hard-working, trusting minority person gets screwed by prevailing (white) power structure.

He then suggests that some version of this story has happened to his listeners, that they “know” what he’s talking about (the old bamboozle) and that that’s the lot in life for black Americans. In other words, he didn’t get his car repair paid for because he’s black,
and anything bad that happened to other minority people is because they are minorities.
In this way, he preys on his own people (1/2), and hates his other half, all the while subtly, and not so-subtly introducing race into everything.
He’s one sick MF.

Amazing that even the average everday american understands Liability insurance when the whiz kid prez can’t seem to understand it. I think that someone in the MEDIA should make it a mission to check back on that accident and his “Acme” insurance company and validate his statements. Let’s see how much truth is in his statements.

I predict just like George W Bush in the end Obama will be happy to turn the reins over to whoever will take them at the end of his term…so he want’s to leave some hope and change graffiti behind?

What perjury and what treason has he commited? If you can prove it I bet a good portion of the US would be all over it.

One of his first presidential pardons will be himself.

Cybergeezer on February 28, 2010 at 10:23 AM

If so, he will have to resign after the pardon. The protests will be massive otherwise. At least, he will leave the Oval Office before 2012.

That actually makes sense.

I fully expect to see that insurance Obamateurism in the finals for Obamateurism of the Year come December.

That’s his out! NO ABILITY!

Went with insurance but only because it was the whole summit that was worthy of the award today.

I guess AP or Mr. Morrissey needs to start a daily “thuggery thread”.

But he does have lie-ability.

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

When did the Fool ever act to defend and protect the Constitution of the United States?

And this lie was told in front of congressmen and senators, half of whom are lawyers, on TV!

No one ever calls him on his lies to his face. No wonder he won’t hold a presser.

Akzed on February 28, 2010 at 9:15 AM

Joe Wilson tried but was excoriated for it. So did Justice Stevens.

Really though, this lie wasn’t for the Senators, it was for the people watching on TV. Obama holds them in such contempt that he really thinks they won’t see the lies.
