It’s time to choose the first Obamateurism of the Week in 2010, and we don’t want to take it too nonchalantly. After all, one of the most important pieces of political writing is the weekly poll, which has the power to, er, get people to vote in it. It’s getting harder, of course, to ditch the notion that the chief executive is an amateur — at least at research and logic.
Later, we’ll list the winners in 2010 as we go along. You can read the Obamateurism of the Year for 2009 here!
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.
