Poll: What was the Obamateurism of the Week?

posted at 9:31 am on September 23, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Time once again for the morning feature you can’t skip — the Obamateurism of the Week poll!  You may not look like an expert on presidential gaffes, but don’t let that stop you from placing a bet on your favorite choice this week.  No matter which you endorse, though, just remember that you have to cast a vote, because you can only change the results from the inside.

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)

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.

One and four should be grouped for purposes of OOTY, (if one of them wins for the week).

One of these days Ed…

… you are going to need an “All of the above!” choice.

“The most important lesson I’ve learned is you can’t change Washington from the inside.”

Wasn’t the basis of his whole 2008 campaign that he could change Washington from the inside? So, what’s the conclusion? A: He was too stupid to know the truth. B: He was lying out his a$$. (note: Both A and B are possible at the same time)

He also found out about the Benghazi attack within 90 minutes after it began and went to bed without knowing the fate of the Ambassador and staff.

We must be rid of this evil pretender.

The Benghazi ones are more outrages than Obamateurisms. But yeah . . .

Why is this doofus fighting so hard to keep a job he really doesn’t seem to be all that interested in?

Gods do not accept demotion. And definitely not from mere mortals.
