Skip to comments.Obama Gets Tongue-Tied on the Word “Superfluous” in Speech to Kennedy Center Honorees – Video
Posted on 12/06/2010 1:20:31 PM PST by Federalist Patriot
Here is video of President Obama having trouble with the word superfluous as he spoke to a group of Kennedy Center Honorees. Notice he also read his script/teleprompter wrong as he began that sentence. He first read the quote as, Too many people, but corrected it with, To many people
.. I could not see a teleprompter in the shot, but there could have been one in the back of the room.

LOL! That was the best of all!
Better - he needed a “corpse-men” from “Allapolis” ....remember when he mispronounced Annapolis. Didn’t get a lot of airtime...but it happened.
Obama and Sarah both make news no matter what. It must be horrible for both of them. He didn’t correctly pronounce a word because of his injuries and this is news. Really? When we have wars, runaway spending, Secrets all out in the open. This is so ridiculous. We cannot be hypocrites. If this was a story of Sarah not pronouncing a word correctly, we would be giving many reasons as to why so she would be protected.
How long did Sarah’s “refudiate” stay in the MSM reporting? That was a slip, but Barry is way over the top.
Yeah but she deals with it well. Buma would freak out if anyone called him on his goofs.
He mispronounced "corpsman" on more than one occasion--after the first time someone should have told him the right way to pronounce the word. Either no one in his circle knows the right way or he just wants to be dismissive.
“He didnt correctly pronounce a word because of his injuries and this is news.”
Why don’t you go to DUmmieland, where they love to make excuses for this dumbbell, too. Couldn’t say the word because of a lip injury? Bugger off, will you?
This is a REAL habit with you, Jagov.
He probably could only recall the Kenyan word for “superfluous”.
Brian Williams: “Good evening, tonight we start with a gaff - yes, another, gaff - from the former Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin. This time, however, she did it in front of a former Beatle. Andrea Mitchel was there to catch the embarrassment...”
typical social promotion commie
I saw this clip. He didn’t slip because of his lip...he didn’t know how to pronounce it immediately and stopped because he knew he would be lampooned. To blame it on his lip was convenient, transparent and pathetic.
That’s a good hypothesis. They speak the Queen’s english there.
Thanks. I don’t watch anything he does unless I just happen to walk past the tv and he is on.
Lol...I know what you mean.
But.. but.. he’s such a great orator.
The Dems said so back in ‘08.
Take his telepwompter away and he’s a slobering blob of stupid.
Give him ‘cerebral’ sounding words and he’s a tongue tied moron.
What a train wreck.
Pass me the popcorn please?
Barry’s goof’s do show up but not for long. They don’t bring it up as often as they do Sarah. But then she doesn’t make all that many. Who can’t read off a teleprompter and still get it wrong?
Ping for later
I think he almost had it right the first time. What was the point he was trying to make again? No one else will remember either.
I think the clapping was superfluous.
Obozo is superfluous
I once knew a super floozy!
TOTUS betrayed him.
Even Porky Pig knew when to CHANGE the expression when he couldn’t blurt it out.
Meh... It was an extra word that really didn’t need to be there anyway. ;-)
Usually I have a great idea for a post, and some FReeper beats me to it. My turn.
