Obamateurism of the Day

posted at 8:09 am on May 13, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

File this one in the If Bush Had Said It Department. Had George Bush stumbled over the word “emancipation” as Barack Obama did at Hampton University over the weekend, it would have been all over the talk-show circuit. As it is, Mark Levin seems to be the only one who picked up on it:

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.

Adversity creates character; Easy to see why Obama and his cronies have none. Cybergeezer on May 13, 2010 at 1:39 PM

Character is destiny. At this point, looks like Obooba will end up in he11.

His wife was retired Army Air Corps, and did all his reading for him, but still, this was a monumental feat for someone that could not read, and he died not ever learning.
AND, BY THE WAY, HE WAS WHITE.

LOL!
And what a great story BTW. My grandfather only had a 5th grade education.
He did just fine, raising 3 kids.
He provided for them by working hard & was able to be on his own without govt assistance, other than his SS & Army pension for disability during WWII.
He also helped provide for his children throughout their adult lives w/ $$ help now & then & now my grandmother as a widow still has the wherewithal to live on her own means in the house they purchased, though it is tight for her.
My husband often waits for me to read material & explain it to him bcs he is a slow reader & it frustrates him sometimes.
People here in SW ND want to nominate him for a position in the Stockman’s Association & it involves political issues.
These kind of people are great for government.
We need more of them.

Epantsipation? Isn’t that an old Carly Simon song?

No, the song that is apropos goes “you probably think this song is about you…”

Right you are about that; These people know what it’s like in the trenches, gettin’ dirt under their fingernails, and wiping the sweat out of their eyes. Or using ether to get their tractor started on a cold day.
They have uncanny ‘horse’ sense’, and make good politicians.
Politics, these days, can be pretty frustrating; Human beings can be some pretty wily animals.

Great line!

You forget, young Jedi, in the Obamaverse, there are no songs that aren’t about him.
