It”s time once again for the Obamateurism of the Week, in which we help Barack Obama take credit for his, er, accomplishments.  After all, we don’t want to attribute these to anything but Obama’s own foibles, although we could call them something else if he likes.  ‘Obamateurisms’ makes for a nice, umbrella term, though.  Maybe he can just plaster it on his forehead to make it easier for everyone.

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.
