Obamateurism of the Day

posted at 8:01 am on September 19, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Democrats really tried to sell the American public during their national convention on the allegation that Republicans have declared a War On Wimminses, and that Mitt Romney is the Offender in Chief in dismissing the distaff set.   But as Eli Lake recounted this weekend in his excellent article of the effort women in the CIA have provided to bring justice to Osama bin Laden, the Champion Of All Julias doesn’t sound like much of an improvement (via Instapundit):

Just before the White House announcement of a new Afghanistan-Pakistan strategy, Obama asked Riedel and his team to come to see him in the Oval -Office so he could thank them. Riedel’s team consisted of an Afghan specialist from the State Department and a Pakistan expert from the CIA. Riedel introduced the CIA analyst to Obama as “the best Pakistan expert I’ve ever seen.” Obama looked at the CIA officer, who was sporting stiletto heels, and said with clear amusement, “You don’t look like a Pakistan expert.”

Maybe the CIA officer politely told the President that his slip was showing.

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.

If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to see it fall………did it?

So another story is printed that won’t be heard by the masses.

So everyone should just tweet, or post to FB, the best parts of the quote. Get this out there. Waiting on the MSM will not work.

The self anointed, smartest man in the room is a total moron…and a sexist.

He pays women less than men in his administration.
He ran up gas prices and electric bill prices.
Food prices are much higher under Obowma due to gas and corn price increases.
Jobs ar scarce and more so fo women.

Obowma owns the War on Women.

“You don’t look like a Pakistan expert.”

What exactly does he think one looks like?

What exactly is a Pakistan expert supposed to look like?

Since we’re not allowed to see any images of Mohammed, I guess we’ll never know.

This is Barry after all, the only expert on everything in his eyes is the guy he sees staring back at him from the mirror every time he stares longingly at it. Everyone else is simply an armature in comparison in his eyes.

Isn’t that Jimmuh Cawter?

This doesn’t surprise me. Anyone watching the DNC a couple of weeks ago knows that to the dems, it’s all about sex. Apparently to a dem, that’s all women are good for.

Did he call her “sweetie?”
