Poll: What was the Obamateurism of the Week?

Kick your feet up on your desks and relax — it’s time for the Obamateurism of the Week poll. Perhaps later you can stroll down a local river, assuming that you too can walk on water, but right now we need you to cast your vote, and you can even print it regardless of whether you’re in Cairo or not. Don’t forget to take a magnetic compass when you do, though — otherwise, you may wind up on a tarmac in Bermuda before anyone realizes you’ve arrived!

Previous “winners”:

  • “If you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.”
  • “We can no longer afford to spend as if deficits do not matter and waste is not our problem.”
  • Siccing Tim Geithner and Charlie Rangel on tax cheats
  • Phony Churchill quote on torture throws Grandpa under the bus
  • Torture probe flip-flop
  • Obama covers up IHS while quoting Jesus
  • Austrian is a language?
  • Obama bows to the Saudi king
  • 1908 Model T got better gas mileage than today’s SUVs

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.
