Poll: What was the Obamateurism of the Week?

posted at 9:00 am on August 21, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

It’s time for our weekly salute to the ongoing whiffs of President Obama and the poll to decide the Obamateurism of the Week!  This week, all of the gaffes were Made in America, which makes them exactly like, er, Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King Jr!  Be sure to vote, though, because it helps Obama understand the market in presidential gaffes.

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.

Better yet, ask Mark Levin if you can use the name of one of his books, and call it the Obama-nation of the Day…

Does every comparison have to go back to beating up on the last president or Sarah Palin?

For that one it does. He bashes just about anything on the Right for being “not right enough”, but if you read closely, you’ll find an almost carefully concealed contempt for real conservatism. Seminar caller. Name pretty much proves it. Heck, if I was going to be a griefer on say DKos, I’d pick a name like No1HillaryFan…

Picked the “Waffles” not because it’s important in and of itself, but because it’s a sterling example of his chronic narcissism. He doesn’t actually care about anybody enough to learn their name. They’re just a trough to take money and time from so he can redistribute it to stir class warfare and buy votes.

It’s all about him. That’s why it’s more important than it is to buy Canadian, ahem, American.
