Poll: What was the Obamateurism of the Week?

posted at 9:00 am on July 18, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

It’s time once again to hold Obama accountable by choosing his most amateurish stumble of the week, and it’s a tough choice — apparently tougher than his choice of vacation spots.  (Of course, the real problem with the Gulf is its golf courses.)  If Obama doesn’t like the choices, he can still blame them on each of his middle names.

Got an Obamateurism of the Day? If you see a foul-up by Barack Obama, e-mail it to me at [email protected] 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.

Had to go with the “I take full responsibility, but it was really Bush’s fault.”

You’d think he’d contradict himself in a separate speech, not in the same one.

I wonder if we can have an index –instead of misery – how about a creditability index for the President ..

Comrade Barry is hell-bent to vacation in all 57 states.

for me it was the Hussein thing because of course it’s all about Barry!

Comments about what Barry boy did to Israel missed the boy king’s comments about the flotilla where Israeli soldiers were beaten with pipes. But yeah, it’s got to be Barry’s middle name since our allies are shallow and not at all like Barry boy.

Just goes to show you… when in the same breath Obama claims to be responsible, but….but….it’s Bush’s fault. and nobody notices the hilarity. The electorate is hopelessly ignorant. Of course it’s because of Democrat mis-educational policies of the last 30 years.

We are so terribly FUBAR’s.

Just this one time…can’t I have “all of the above”?
These are all too good.
Went with Al-Qaeda is racist,for no particular reason.

Any of those choices works well. Because they’re all great statements about a very failed President and a very stupid guy, if he’s a guy at all because at this rate I really do wonder.

–Israelis don’t trust him because “my middle name is Hussein, and that creates suspicion”

–Goes to Maine for vacation after First Lady urges people to visit the Gulf

–Claims to have hiked HIV program funding “each year” of his presidency

–Al-Qaeda is raaaaaacist

–Obama expects to be held accountable on jobs, but it’s Bush’s fault

Seriously, now, look at that list of actual statements by a man called Barack Hussein (hold on, Israel, our eyes are rolling at that, too) Obama…

Isn’t it the obvious conclusion that this guy — Obama — just had too many street drugs for too long in his formative years, such as they were? His ongoing statements really ARE the dialogue I’d expect to hear from an Oliver Stone character from a film called, “Stoned”.

Also, I tend to think Obama has not abandoned the Wacky Weed.
