Obamateurism of the Day

posted at 8:05 am on April 30, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

Arizona’s new immigration-enforcement law has caused many in political life to rethink their assumptions — but not their geography. In a town-hall meeting in Ottumwa, Iowa this week, Barack Obama tried walking the fine line between welcoming people to the country and actually enforcing the law, while somehow ignoring the fact that his job really only involves doing the latter. Obama tried to salute the US by pointing out that we treat immigrants different than other countries do … like, say, that big country across the pond called Europe:

So the challenge we have now is how do we set up a system where, yes, we’re welcoming new people to our country, which by the way makes us stronger. One of the things that is a huge advantage for America compared to countries like Europe is, actually, we’re constantly replenishing ourselves with hungry, driven people who are coming here, and they want to work, and they start a business, and our population is younger and more dynamic, and that’s a good thing!

One of the things that is usually an advantage is that we have a legal system of immigration that allows those people to enter the US properly. The problem isn’t that we don’t welcome legal immigrants. It’s that we don’t bother to enforce our immigration laws so that we can have more legal immigration that favors the law-abiding and productive over those who start off their stay in America by breaking our laws. And one of the problems with our brilliant President is that he’s apparently never learned that Europe isn’t actually a country, but a continent which contains many countries.

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.

Refresh my memory, but wasn’t Palin portrayed as a moron for saying something like “the country of Africa?”

Seems like the MSM should jump all over this little faux pas.

C-SPAN is doing a deplorable job this morning. They opened the phone lines to illegal aliens to call in and blubber about how hard it is to be an illegal alien.

One woman said her husband is an illegal. Oh, by her marrying him he could have made it legal. But she would have had to pay a $2,500 application fee. Not feeling it, she opted not to make him legal. Then he got deported. (Violin music, please). She had to pay a smuggler $2,500 to bring her husband back in the country.

I’m too choked up to continue…

Also

…we’re constantly replenishing ourselves with hungry, driven people who are coming here, and they want to work, and they start a business, and our population is younger and more dynamic, and that’s a good thing!

This kinda dodges the concept of assimilation. Seems like people who used to relocate in America wanted to be Americans. This may still be true, but we seem to hear more and more about people who just want to relocate here permanently while completely abstaining from cultural assimilation.

One of Obama’s idiotic rants. I believe we already have a system set up. He pretends he is building this country from scratch. Does he ever show pride in his country when it does not involve him. This man sets new levels of narcissism. geesh my teeth hurt!

Well, that is lib speak. You see, we are not Americans, well those of us who live in the United States are not Americans. We are citizens of the United States of America.

Heck, you don’t hear our friends up north in Canada calling themselves Americans. You do hear a lot of people from south of the border calling themselves Americans though.

Actually, Europe does have a lot of immigrants from Muslim countries. Does Obama not know this or is he implying that those Muslim immigrants are lazy and do not replenish Europe?

silly me, I thought we already had a system in place where we welcome new people to our country. I thought I had a grandmother & grandfather who went through Ellis Island.

Dear Liar is not a drooling idiot with a substandard IQ. So is He just so woefully ignorant, unlearned or untaught about history, amongst other subjects, or is He such an inveterate liar.

rbj on April 30, 2010 at 8:33 AM

Like it or not, he’s right in part. The problem seems to be that he only talks about action and doesn’t actually take action. I read where Nancy said that they ‘needed leadership from the WH on this issue.’ I took that to mean that Obama has to take all the heat for this one if there’s any to be taken.(hah!) Perhaps read too much into her remark, but plan to watch with this nuance in mind.

txag92 on April 30, 2010 at 8:42 AM

Hey Ed,

The biggest Obamateurism here isn’t mistaking Europe for a country. Obama seems to imply that European countries don’t welcome immigrants. Or is it just that immigrants to Europe aren’t “hungry” and “driven” or don’t want to work and start businesses? This whole argument is ridiculous. I live in France and there are a lot of immigrants (legal and illegal) here.

Obama also seems to imply that immigrants automatically make our country stronger. That is totally senseless. Immigrants who come with a desire to work and who are committed to American ideals and the Constitution strengthen America. Those who come expecting a free ride or with the desire to turn America into a socialist banana republic do not make us stronger.

His whole argument is bogus and amateurish.

Ordinary American on April 30, 2010 at 8:43 AM

Some hacker needs to create a TelePrompTer virus so The Precedent has to talk off-the-cuff every day and all Americans can see what a total rube this moron is.

Some of his supporters know Beginner Barry has us in deep kimchi but most are in MAJOR denial.

rockbend on April 30, 2010 at 8:43 AM

It’s probably a telling slip. He thinks of Europe as one big socialist country … after all, the gigantic, oppressive EU government controls everything. That’s just what he wants here.

darwin on April 30, 2010 at 8:43 AM

Palin was torn apart for being accused of saying almost the same thing about Africa (it turned out she didn’t)…so let’s have at it MSM, I can see Europe from the White House?

the_nile on April 30, 2010 at 8:27 AM

Doesn’t signify what it used to. Used to mean that the student had actually studied and achieved and demonstrated mastery in a wide spectrum of subject areas. Now it just means the student was proficient in memorizing and regurgitating the same Marxist/One World Government/Evil White Man Oppresses Noble Black Savages POV and talking points favored by the student’s Loony Left professors.

That’s how you end up with a “top” Harvard law graduate who can’t even figure out what his own auto insurance policy covers, and an average Harvard law graduate (wife Michelle) who couldn’t pass her first bar exam.

AZCoyote on April 30, 2010 at 8:46 AM

It occurs after a bit more reflection: People have spoken a more of late of Obama’s air of superiority for himself/patronization toward others. Assuming this is fair (and not mere perception), then it would not be surprising that he’d “dumb down” his thinking to speak to the masses, which would include an oversimplifications to the point of inaccuracy (i.e., a country called Europe).

So the challenge we have now is how do we set up a system where, yes, we’re welcoming new people to our country, which by the way makes us stronger.

Yo Barry! We HAVE a system. It’s called legal immigration – ya know where you get in line, apply to come, wait until approved and THEN come?

The problem Arizona is addressing involves those that don’t follow that system and instead jump the fence illegally. What we really need is the Federal Government to actually uphold the Federal law!

He must have been thinking of the European Union and all the members as part of that country. This is exactly why some of those members did not want to be part of the Union. They didn’t want to lose their identity, culture, customs or language just as we are with all that diversity BS. The illegal Mexican immigration has been going on for too long. Think back to when we didn’t have press 2 for Espanol.

..I am not a grammar instructor so I would not have made my statement based on that. I care more about what someone is trying to say then I do about whether someone dotted their i’s or not.

Liberals use this excuse all the time of “dumbing down for the little people”. They said that Al Gore should have done it in the debates with Bush and he would have done better.


Two things with this.

1. The assumption that the People have to be “dummied down to” is beyond condescending and shows a serious lack of knowledge by this person concerning the general public.
This is no different than the stereotypical assumptions like “most Asian people know Karate” and “only the ignorant lower class join the Army”.

2. This “he’s to smart for us” routine is only applied to liberal leadership.When Bush or Reagen would make a gaffe,it was solid proof that they were idiots.
Obama has made an enormous amount of them and is forced to use a teleprompter (even in meetings containing only 10 people) to prevent these and all we here from the liberal crowd is “it was just a gaffe,I am sure he knows that…he just misspoke.”
You can’t have it both ways.

The “he is dumbing down for us” is nothing more than spin to try and deflect the fact that Obama is not the great leader he was sold to be.

Obama has to have a controlled environment,control of the questions (or an Obama supporter giving the questions),his townhalls have to be screened,he needs a teleprompter the vast majority of the time,and the press that is allowed to him has to be compliant(got to get those book deals).

….maybe if he spoke more Argentinean he would not get so wee weed up in all the 57 states he rides his automobile that was invented by the US in
to give speeches where he can’t tell the difference between the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.

Baxter Greene on April 30, 2010 at 9:30 AM

itsnotaboutme on April 30, 2010 at 9:49 AM

I just did a little research on the Sarah Palin “mistake about Africa” and there is no independent proof that she actually said it, thought it, or believed it. The fact is that the vast majority of media, obsequious to liberals and Democrats, repeated the lie every fifteen minutes on every broadcast from local to national and now it is embedded in the national consciousness. When the national and local media do not report it, it is not front and center, not emphasized, and not “reality.”
.
I wonder if Dingy Harry would call the Main Stream Muckrakers “anti-American” or “un-American” if they began to criticize him as intensely as they criticize Sarah Palin. Given the arrogance and viciousness of the liberal mind, I bet he would.

I have brought up this President and his administration’s lack of Geography knowledge many times what do they teach up in Harvard? How about all his bowing in the Pacific? Barack Obama bowed to a Japanese figure head, the son of the Emperor of Japan that attacked US, the Chinese, The Koreans and the Philippians. First Pacific President my A$$. He doesn’t care who he insults by not observing proper protocol.

Check out Janet Napolitano’s claim that the 9/11 terrorist came across the Canadian border and that the Northern Border is as violent as the Southern Border. It’s striking because she is the Secretary of the DHS, a position which can wield a great deal of power, you would wish she would know something about the “Facts” average everyday Americans live with.

I’ve been having some trouble accessing the new site.

Initially I can see the new site but after clicking on links to pages posted yesterday I only see the version available at midnight.

The following fix worked for me (in Windows XP)

my network places
view network connections
click the connection you use
click repair this connection

Clearing history as suggested last night didn’t help.

Hope this helps those who may have the same problem.

There is now enough of these Obama boners to fill a book and start a meme of Obama being clueless of some very important facts.

Whew!
I almost freaked out when I signed on to here this morning.
I was like “WTF???” “I’ve been banned!!!” “Obamatrons have hacked the site!!!” “It’s the beginning of the end!!!” “Lock and load!!11!!!”

Buster flashed up “Chill, dude, it’s just that their IT guy is a putz.” “They’ll figure things out in a few days.”
