Poll: OOTY prelims, Flight 5

We almost have the first semi-final poll filled out for the Obamateurism of the Year, thanks to the selection last week of Barack Obama’s assumption that men and women in the military are there to fight on his behalf.  Let’s look at the next five weekly winners to see who will get added to Round One of the semifinals:


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)
