Obamateurism of the Day

posted at 8:01 am on November 1, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

A fine sentiment, issued here by Barack Obama while visiting the Red Cross. “We leave nobody behind,” Obama says to the gathered volunteers. “We make sure that we respond as a nation, and remind ourselves that whenever an American is in need, all of us stand together to make sure that we’re providing the help that’s necessary.”

Of course, he’s talking about a private-sector organization during Hurricane Sandy … not the Obama administration during the seven hours that the Americans in our consulate in Benghazi were “in need,” in which case we apparently stand down rather than stand together.

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.
