Poll: What was the Obamateurism of the Week?

posted at 9:00 am on May 22, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

It’s another Ruff week for the President, so we have a great overview on choices for our Obamateurism of the Week!  Most of these are pretty indefensible, and none of them really add up, but Obama’s lucky.  If they got half the coverage they deserved, Obama would face a tough time getting funds for his re-election.  Oh, wait

Got an Obamateurism of the Day? If you see a foul-up by Barack Obama, e-mail it to me atobamaisms@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.

…and today the Liar in Chief fooled the U.S. Jewish people, and they bought his lies hook and sinker. May they suffer from what he will do to them, as they ask, vote and pay for it, freely.

LOL. It’s more accurate anyway.

אני עומד עם ישראל … את הנשיא, לא כל כך הרבה

What he/she said.

We’ve already lived through 28 months of Obama. Only 20 to go.

Come on people – we can do it!

Gird yer loins, people! This ride’s gonna get rough!

When Chris Wallace asked him about the right of return Cain had absolutely no idea what the was talking about. Not good.

Naturally Curly on May 22, 2011 at 9:23 AM

Wrong, wrong and wrong. He simply repeated Wallace’s question for clarification, and then gave him a perfectly good answer.

The whole of his response to questions from Wallace on Israel and little Bammie’s total screwup last week was on-target and in line with most Republicans.

Israel — this is a few thousand year old question, yet Dear Liar can’t get it straight? Smartest president ever? Give me a dummy like Ronald Reagan any day.

Obama is a creature of the far left and for all of them, Israel is in the wrong. The far left are the folks who inhabit the ISM, the “Free Gaza” movement, the flotillas, etc.

And at AIPAC today, he draws the curtain back over to hide the leakage of his real perspective. No doubt fooling all the idiots like Dershowitz who chalk what he said on Thursday up to error rather than ideology.

Right, but it’s not simply Israel they hate, it’s ‘the Jooooooozzzza’, as Reverend Wright would say.

“Israel must be able to defend itself – by itself – against any threat”

This one is going to leave a mark he has got to get rid of Jarrett….or keep her and they can fly home together on the same plane to Chicago in January 2013.

It’s an interesting one, no? Like Obama is saying that he’s going to leave Israel twisting in the wind with a nuclear Iran, Egypt controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood, and his good buddy the ‘reformer’ Assad.

ProfessorMiao on May 22, 2011 at 2:41 PM

From Obama’s speech at AIPAC today:

“we know that peace demands a partner – which is why I said that Israel cannot be expected to negotiate with Palestinians who do not recognize its right to exist, and we will hold the Palestinians accountable for their actions and their rhetoric.But the march to isolate Israel internationally – and the impulse of the Palestinians to abandon negotiations – will continue to gain momentum in the absence of a credible peace process and alternative.”

Good candidate for tomorrow’s amateurism of the day. Sounds like Obama doesn’t understand the basic concept of contradiction.

Israel is on its own. -Barack Hussein Obama.

Even worse, I don’t think he understands accountable, either. In fact, I’m pretty sure the only people he holds accountable are the voters in Red states.

Dhuka on May 22, 2011 at 7:49 PM

Since it’s an honest assessment of the man and not calling for his death or injury, this is a most appropriate prayer. I second it and IowaWoman’s Amen.

Is it my imagination or does O’Bozo look more and more like the SNL guy that mocks him?
