Obama: Everyone wants a little R-S-P-E-C-T

posted at 12:41 pm on March 7, 2014 by Allahpundit

Via the Free Beacon, he was probably just tired. He’s been up late all week on the phone, listening to Putin tell him to get bent over Crimea. Respect is a very foreign concept these days at the White House.

Can’t every American over the age of 40 spell this word just by singing it?

Can’t every American over the age of 40 spell this word just by singing it?

I remember in High School, one of my English teachers claimed that a poll showed that a large number of American kids actually thought “relief” was spelled R-O-L-A-I-D-S, because that’s how they learned it from seeing TV commercials in the 70s.

We have to forgive this man….he was preoccupied with pleasant thoughts going thru his head humming Franklin’s
“It’s Raining Men”

ToddPA on March 7, 2014 at 12:49 PM

“It’s Raining Men” is by The Weather Girls aka Two Tons O’ Fun.

Buttercup on March 7, 2014 at 1:26 PM

Probably the only American black music Barry’s ever listened to was a little Barry White during his Reggie Love.

And with that joke, I should be punished for ruining the regard of great music like that.
