Poll: What was the Obamateurism of the Week?

posted at 9:31 am on August 19, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Instead of writing a clever paragraph introducing the entries for this week’s OOTW, let’s talk about the fundraising drive for our OOTD partner Chris Muir, creator of the New Media cartoon strip Day By Day.You don’t have to ask around to find out if he built it himself, but you do know he hasn’t sold out. He’s not complaining about fairness in pay or running away from scrutiny — he’s just turning out one of the best New Media websites each day. Join the block party and be a contributor!

Previous weekly “winners” in 2012:

Previous Obamateurisms of the Year:

  • Giving 2 minutes of “shout-outs” before getting to the Fort Hood shooting (2009)
  • Obama leaves Clinton at press conference podium on tax deal to attend Christmas party (2010)
  • “I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president— with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln.” (2011)


It’s time once again to show our support for Day By Day and its artist-publisher, Chris Muir.  Chris holds an annual fundraiser to keep the adventures of Sam, Zed, Jan, and Damon coming.  Chris, whose artwork has enhanced the OOTD feature since its inception for Hot Air readers, uses the funds raised for only the continuance of DBD.  As always, the fundraiser has many fabulous gifts available at whatever level one chooses to donate.  If you’re thinking about donating at the Jan/Damon level or above, you’ll get a Last Supper Red vs Blue magnet, which has depictions of personalities from New Media — myself included.  Donating at the Anatoly Level will get you a 9×15 print of the artwork.  Dig deep and be part of supporting the one of the best New Media cartoonists in the biz!

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.

cmsinaz on August 19, 2012 at 9:38 AM

Went with #1. I ruled out #2 since that was an observation more than an Obamateurism.

22044 on August 19, 2012 at 9:39 AM

Still amazed that Barry’s statement yesterday in his speech yesterday in New Hampshire did not draw any attention or reaction:

“Ryan/Romney’s plan) would be a plan in which you could not count on health care because it would have to come out of your pocket”

This reflects as much of Barry’s core as “you did not build that” and ” shared prosperity”.

To Barry and the Democrats, things would only be counted on if they are free or had come out of other people’s pocket?

bayview on August 19, 2012 at 9:39 AM

Woof.

Who was it that called Obama “BlightBringer” on another thread? The more I think about that, the more I think it’s the best and most descriptive name given him so far. Even better than my former favorite, Pres. PuppyMuncher.

Fer sure, dude! Let’s talk about favorite chiles and what superpower you would like to have, instead of all that mundane stuff about the economy, the jobs you promised but that have yet to materialize, the situation in the Middle East, immigration, and how business owners “didn’t build that” and all that other responsibility stuff you would rather not talk about.

Oh, and let’s not forget that moron Vice President of yours who seems to have a hard time keeping his big fat loud mouth in check, not to mention all those campaign staffers of yours who seem to have hard time with this thing known as “the truth”.

Yeah, let’s talk about chiles instead.

How about we talk about November, as in your day of reckoning?

cmsinaz on August 19, 2012 at 9:40 AM

But Barry’s core has to be unmasked to the general public, not just just preaching to the choir on HotAir. The media, including conservative media, RNC and the campaign should not just let statement like that go.

Don’t think he’ll be too worried about feathering the nest before his departure. With all the pardons to be issued to the Wall Street crowd, to guys like Corzine, I imagine some rather handsome sums will be deposited in offshore accounts.

The man lives in a bubble. The press used to assert George W. Bush lived in a bubble also. I don’t think he did, but let’s at least concede the differences.

Barack Obama lives in a bubble because the same press now that seems to want to start complaining they don’t have access to him crafted his bubble for him. As they do with most all liberals, they invent an environment where their guy can do or say, no wrong. They insulate them from all critique. Now that they have a few minor points of contention they’d like to discuss with him, he tells them to pack sand up their butts and then does fluff pieces in supermarket magazines.

To the media, you made this monster, you fix him.

Blames Ryan for blocking farm bill … that the House already passed

The man is completely disinterested in doing his job. He has absolutely no grasp of current policy.

Aizen on August 19, 2012 at 10:06 AM

I went with the farm bill because it pretty well represents what we are getting from the WH…lies. And, BO fibbed about this while campaigning in Iowa. I didn’t see any “journalist” following his campaign challenge him. I also haven’t heard a peep out of the RR campaign to counter this with the truth. So as far as the undecided voters living in farm producing states, Ryan is a an obstructionist.

Once again the DNC is defining the Republicans.

Lanceman on August 19, 2012 at 10:07 AM

I really hope the Romney campaign is planning on doing some commercials that explain to the voting public what Obama really did with his “auto industry bailout” (or more appropriately, his raiding of the treasury on behalf of the auto workers’ union, at a cost to taxpayers of more than $25 billion).

I’m sick of hearing Obama claim that he heroically “saved” the “America auto industry” — and even more sick of hearing the MSM parrot that ludicrous lie. After a huge infusion of U.S. taxpayer cash, Chrysler was sold to a foreign company. And the only thing Obama saved at GM were the bloated salaries and pensions of GM’s union workers; everybody else (e.g., non-union Delphi workers, Republican-owned dealerships) was screwed over, and U.S. taxpayers were screwed over worst of all!

AZCoyote on August 19, 2012 at 10:10 AM

I went with the farm bill. If he was speaking in front of farmers, even if they were supporters, I promise you the majority of them knew the status of that bill. I wonder if he really did know and just lied? Or didn’t know and is just incompetent? What’s the dif?

Amen. Like dodging the parts of the “press corps” (surrounded by quotations because they’re not a real press corps) while heading to conduct Hollywood interviews (let’s not kid ourselves, that’s what People and ET are).

Maybe we should have “Bidenisms,” but that would probably take up way too much space and time.

Aizen on August 19, 2012 at 10:13 AM

I wonder if he really did know and just lied?

tj4osu on August 19, 2012 at 10:11 AM

I think he really does know but lies. To him, to most of them, it’s “just” politics – saying or doing anything to get elected is just part of the process for them, so there is nothing wrong with it. At leats not to them.

Also, I find it ironic that he’s hiding from his own press corps lapdogs.

VibrioCocci on August 19, 2012 at 10:14 AM

Farm Bill idiocy is simply amateurishness at its most egregious.

AZCoyote on August 19, 2012 at 10:10 AM

And the fact that he “saved” the industry in the most inefficient and politically-motivated method possible – throwing $50 billion plus at the problem, without addressing the real issues – cutting expenses, designing and building desirable products, and improving the marketing and retail distribution of these products. Any idiot could have “saved” the auto industry for a couple years with $50B to throw at the problem, and it looks like our own special idiot in the WH just kicked the can down the road a couple years, and is now trying to take credit for it.

PatMac on August 19, 2012 at 10:32 AM

If the reversal that put Barry out front is true, it may be that Ryan’s selection, and the putting MediCare Reform out front, are not as popular among the general public as for the GOP base. Low information voters and the dependence class are buying the Romney/Ryan will be taking freebies from you lines.

Er, because it’s not a secret? Well, it’s no secret to us, but the majority of Americans not exposed to anything but the MSM probably wouldn’t know what Obama was even referring to.

Simply put, we’ve known Obama and the Democrats have wanted to nationalize every single industry they could get their dirty hands on for decades. It just didn’t surprise me as much when he said it because liberals don’t typically hide their socialism. It’s just that no one in the media ever gives a damn.

Hardest poll in a very long time. Sure there is the usual out and out lying Obama does but as far as gaffe goes, nationalizing all of the American industry wins.

I also thought both #1 and #5 were winners but I had to go with the most dangerous of the two

Wants to “do the same thing” to all industries as he did with auto industry 34.97% (1,106 votes)

Sgt Steve on August 19, 2012 at 12:41 PM

Hiding from the press is a good play for the Resident right now. He’s finally being forced to face real questions, and he has no answers, so running is smart.

Claiming he plans to treat all industry as he did the car makers, that was an amateur move. If he were just a tiny bit less of a narcissist, he’d see it. But he can’t.

It’s really painful that this nation’s best hope to avoid a second Obama term is founded on his own psychosis being seen in public.

TarheelBen on August 19, 2012 at 10:18 AM

My guess is that the “leaning Romneys” that Rasmussen counts have pulled back to undecided since they had undecided up to 7%. It does not look like Obama has gained, Romney has just fallen back. Hopefully after Ryan sells himself at the convention, that will overcome the negative characterization from the media and reverse the trend. The mushy middle may have been thinking Romney was more liberal than the Ryan selection now suggests he is. In any case, the election is now about issues which means a victory gives a mandate to do something rather than just not be Romney.

Who really unchained Wall Street?

In keeping with the left’s blaxploitation enterprise, white Northerner Joe Biden feigned the hemistichical rhythm of a Southern black preacher for his largely black audience in Virginia yesterday:

They’ve said it. Every Republican’s voted for it. Look at what they value and look at their budget and what they’re proposing. Romney wants to let the-he said in the first 100 days, he’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules. Unchain Wall Street! They gawn’ put y’all back in chains.

For all the bluster of Obama, pre- and post-2008, as well as that of Attorney General Eric Holder concerning the alleged criminal activities on Wall Street, there have been zero Wall Street prosecutions under Obama/Holder. Compare that with his predecessors Bush and Clinton:

Had to go with hiding from the press corps. The “do the same to every industry” isn’t so much of an Obamaturism as an acknowledgement that he admires and aspires to Hugh Chaves-style governance. And of course we already knew that. Hiding from the press corps is much more of an outright Obamaturism because it shows just how thin-skinned he actually is. The press has carried his water for the past 8 years (going all the way back to the 2004 DNC and his first Greatest Speech Ever In The History Of Human Language), and now that they’re actually asking him some somewhat tough questions (though no where near what a Republican President would have to face in the same circumstances), he’s taking his ball and going over to where everyone gets a ribbon, even if you come in ninth.

Aw, come on, guys! President Celebrity has always ducked the press for softball media. It’s far more idiotic that he’s bragging about the auto industry success when GM is teetering on bankruptcy again.

I had to go with #3. It seems more in keeping with my understanding of “Obamateurism”.

Love the front page pic. Has Obama upgraded from Teleprompter to a Palantir?

I noticed that too. Is Barack Hobbit Obama channeling Sauron Soros?

What a target-rich environment! Just about any of those is worthy of OOTD.

I went with the whine about Michelle not being paid a cent while paying female WH staffers 10% less than male staff. O’s “official” stance has always been a hyper pro-women one. Yet here he is walking the traditional “male chauvanist pig” path in the real world. (And, wouldn’t you know it, not a single “feminist” has made a peep about it or over the pay inequality of his campaign staff. Way to go NOW!!!!!)

I chose 1 … but 5 is a close second. Heck they all are representative of King Putt.
But number one is the perfect for of a subject he’ll have to address in the debates. The results of that exchange will be not unlike President Present sucking on a fist full of sour lemons.
As the question is developed along with a close up of Dear Liar, his face will exhibit the first evidence of a nervous twitch. Then sweating and the ‘Uhhhh’s’ and the ‘As I’ve said before’… ‘As my plan was envisioned.’ ‘Blocked by the Republicans in the Congress.’ Etc, etc. The verbal groping will be monumental.
Mitt will respond with measured details of the economic analysis, itemize each and every deficiency of Government Motors (let us not forget the Foreign Loan to Fiat for stealing Chrysler) and in one minute make chopped liver out of Obamugabe. Jugears will be a fumbling stumbling mass of stupid Hopium and he will be expended before a live audience. The LMSM (Lying Manipulated Stories Machine) will be unable to save their precious affirmative action complete and utter fraud now The Once.
