Poll: What was the Obamateurism of the Week?

posted at 9:00 am on July 25, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

The deadline has arrived to pick this week’s biggest Obamateurism, but don’t expect a free ride.  Making it too easy would show a lack of faith in OOTW voters, after all.  I’d tell you I feel your pain, but then again, I’d probably just shrug it off with a government program.

Note: Last week’s OOTW poll was perhaps the closest we’ve ever had. The winner below only beat “Goes to Maine for vacation after First Lady urges people to visit the Gulf” by 44 votes. I believe that we may have had some illegal felon voting that wound up deciding this election, so I’ll be doing some investigation. I’m going to tell Salem that it seems to have originated in either Hawaii, Tahiti, or DisneyWorld, and I’ll need to check out all three to figure it out…

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.

I agree they all qualify but the audacity of flying a dog on a separate jet for a 2 day vacation at taxpayers’ expense has got to be the winner for the year.

Flying a dog on a separate plane is over-the-top “I won” behavior. It says, “I rule and therefore should be above the petty domestic inconveniences the rest of you deal with everyday”. That is just arrogant. The real Obama (I see the Obamateurisms as pictures of the true Obama) is ratcheted up even further by the statement, “they can go on unemployment”. Here we see the true essence of the man. He shows us that our very livelihoods mean nothing to him. We are here to serve him and his agenda and if jobs, self-respect, etc. stand in the way he will push that aside.

Hands down a no-brainer on this one… This one shows a president who is on another planet from the mainstream. This president has absolutely no idea how badly of a disconnect this statement represents. Or, maybe he does and just doesn’t mind bitch-slapping us around some more; hard to tell anymore.

kingsjester on July 25, 2010 at 9:14 AM

Really hard this week. I think the real answer is the combination of Bo getting his own flight, plus telling the whole state of Lousiana that they can file for unemployment.

What an unmitigated scumbag we have for an el Presidente.

blatantblue on July 25, 2010 at 9:31 AM

I realize that the popularity of the “file an unemployment claim” answer will probably carry the day but that is just Øbummer political philosophy. He could care less about where the revenue is going to derive but he does want transfer payments available potentially to buy votes even if the targeted recipients would rather make their own living without undue bureaucratic government interference.
.
Continuing his amateur military deployment practices, he telegraphed the National Guard deployment date just as he has telegraphed the projected troop withdrawal date from Afghanistan. Øbummer wants our adversaries to love us because Democrats are all about racial justice and equality of outcomes. Thus he gives them these advance warnings about our plans without regard to how it might affect our military personnel.

Some people don’t like the idea of getting a government check – which is good, because millions of us are required to pay into unemployment programs, but we don’t qualify for one day of benefits should we become unemployed. It’s all “employee mentality” from the Regime.

“Don’t worry Governor, we can redistribute the wealth”. He’s so disconnected that he doesn’t understand that Americans want to work, not get a handout AND that the more business he drives away (moratorium on drilling, health care fiasco, financial regulation bill) the less wealth there is to redistribute.

mph on July 25, 2010 at 9:52 AM

The OOTW isn’t listed.

It has to do with the soldiers still fighting the war in Afghanistan that his administration has seem to have forgotten. This week was murder for our troops. If he dosn’t change the ROE back to pre-McChystal command, we are going to have a real blood-bath on our hands and it isn’t going to be enemy that’s in the hurt locker.

Our soldiers are dying because of the ROE pure and simple. We cannot shoot, we cannot pursue IED implacers, we cannot even use warning shots. We’re going to have our 4th points of contact handed to us on a plate if we don’t change the GD ROE back.

Unemployment is for full time workers that have been laid off, or let go for reasons other than cause. It does not apply to part timers, or the self employed/contract workers. So what do those workers do? File for some ‘stash’ funds? Turd.

Note: Full time workers whose hours have been reduced to part time due to lack of work may be eligible for unemployment benefits. Yes, you can work part time and still collect adjusted unemployment payments (this may vary by state).

Note2: Teh Awesomes are coming to Florida for their next vacation in August. Doesn’t everyone take vacation every month?

pilamaye on July 25, 2010 at 10:02 AM

Let them eat cake, spake The One. I chose President Kick-Ass telling Gov. Jindal that those who are unemployed due to the offshore drilling ban can collect unemployment. This week’s selections reinforce the fact that Nobama and his lackeys are elitist, tone-deaf, out-of-touch, callous, arrogant, narcissistic, limousine-liberal empty suits.

A separate jet for the dog, whining aboout being unemployed for a few weeks after receiving Ivy League degrees (including a law degree) and reminding us that he couldn’t care less if and how much the taxpayers are soaked for an unemployment extension should tell us all we need to know. Marie Antoinette got nothin’ on these jerks.

EternalVigilance on July 25, 2010 at 9:28 AM

Absolutely! This punk wants us to be servile and desperate. His plan depends deeply on sapping the dignity of ordinary Americans to the point that they see a socialist regime as a good thing. Don’t think we’ll remain immune forever either. BO knows that once we get a taste of federal “aid”, alot of us are gonna come back for more. Don’t think it’s impossible to get 90% of the White vote as well as the Black vote with such tactics. People will be saying “yeah I’d like to vote my conscience, but I can’t find work and need the aid. Very few of them will consider the impossibility of improving the job market with such a huge public sector drain. And that is how a slippery slope is set up!

Arriving on a separate plane and getting your own plane are two completely different things. Ed also made the comment that “Maybe Bo just doesn’t care for Air Force One”, but the President didn’t fly in Air Force One. They had to all fly in two smaller planes because the airport was too small for Air Force One.

The whole thing is just dishonest.

Ortzinator on July 25, 2010 at 2:00 PM

Tells unemployed “and by the way, I’ve been out of work”

Even though it’s far behind…took this one. As always, the Schmuck-in-Chief has to interject himself into whatever the topic is. Here are some other “I feel your pain” moments I’m expecting to hear from Obama in the near future:

- I’ve been a single mother.
- I blew out my elbow pitching in college, and couldn’t afford the surgery to fix it. Which, incidentally, is why I suck at throwing out first pitches.
- I lost my home to foreclosure because of predatory lenders.
- I got fired from a job because I was late when my car ran out of gas and those racists at the local BP station wouldn’t sell me any.

I couldn’t vote for the separate jet for the dog because I don’t believe he had a separate jet for the dog.

I think the separate jet was for staffers or other hangers-on, and the dog had to go on that because the dog gets airsick (I read something to that effect once), and either they wanted to protect the jet they were on, or more likely, just didn’t want to be bothered with it.

In any case, I’ve always believed the dog is nothing but a prop to them, and a bothersome one, at that. Haven’t seen or read anything to disabuse me of that notion.

I’m glad Bo one didn’t win because it didn’t happen. It was a plane full of staffers that happened to have Bo on it. Arriving on a separate plane and getting your own plane are two completely different things. Ed also made the comment that “Maybe Bo just doesn’t care for Air Force One”, but the President didn’t fly in Air Force One. They had to all fly in two smaller planes because the airport was too small for Air Force One.

The whole thing is just dishonest.

Damn, I voted for that one. I should realized it was something like that.

The “they can just file an unemployment claim” is probably the best, assuming that’s what he said. I don’t think Jindal would just make it up, but if it’s not a direct quote, then it’s hard to gauge exactly how stupid it is.
