Danish TV Host Mocks Obama For His Rhetoric
http://www.weeklystandard.com/ ^ | March 24,2012 | Daniel Halper

Thomas Buch-Andersen, host of the Danish TV show Detektor, mocked President Obama's political rhetoric in a recent episode. "Obama used a metaphor from boxing to explain Denmark's role in the world," says Buch-Andersen, introducing the segment.

He then roles the tape. "That's fairly typical of the way that Danes have punched above their weight in international affairs," President Obama says at a press availability in the Oval Office with Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt of Denmark.

Hilarious video. Obama using the same line “punching above their weight” line any number of times with a different country leader each time.

Won’t hold my breath waiting for Brian Williams to report it..

That's funny. Our imagination-challenged president never lets a good well-worn cliche go unexercised.

I find it staggering that so many people think he is brilliant, and a wonderful speaker. I think people who praise him as a truly exceptional person are really just impressed when they see a black man who isn’t in prison. It’s White Guilt — nothing else explains why so many people like he’s is almost godlike in his magnificence.

Danes have punched above their weight in international affairs,” President Obama says at a press availability in the Oval Office with Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt of Denmark.”

(...)

“I’ve said this before, but I want to repeat: Norway punches above its weight,” Obama says.”

(...)

“We have no stronger ally than the Netherlands,” says Obama. “They consistently punch above their weight.”

(...)

For at least the 500th time, I am embarrassed about our president.

If you are not an ideologue...you can’t help but be ‘on’ to the O. When this administration is finally gone...America will breathe a sigh of relief.

At this time the circumstances in the country are scary. It feels so disconnected from decency, character and values. The POTUS comes off as a programmed robot.

The USA better save itself in November.

Obama is actually insulting them. He’s telling them they’re featherweights in a heavyweight world.

I don’t get it either. The cadence of his speech is really strange. Due to him being raised outside the country perhaps. And without a teleprompter he trips over his words. Maybe other ppl see him as being thoughtful? I hope its not white guilt. Cuz no offense to all the white ppl out there, but that just might get this fool re-elected.

Last night I was talking with this guy about Obama’s stated goal of bankrupting the coal industry. He was actually defending Obama saying we need to look towards the future. WTH? Is it find any excuse to support this man?

Maybe that’s what he thinks of typical white people.

Goes to show what a slothful lazy jackanape he really is!

Either that or he's legally retarded, and can't tell.

Omg, this is a Must See!!!

Hilarious!

And besides the phony rhetoric, his stammering and bored attitude are wholly embarrassing. Ugh.

His cadence is artificial. He thinks he is speaking with Malcolm X grandeur. But Malcolm had actual passion.

Heavy “gay” accents are also artificial even if subconscious. Obama’s fake cadence and shlurping the ends of phrases is the same. He’s desperately trying to sound grand.

I don't think theres ever been a president with such a limited intellect.

Hey I wish some of those Newt/Romney supporters haunting Santorum threads were over here to see this. They've got buttloads of really funny put-downs.

That is certainly preferable to 0bama’s punching below the belt.

Move on! Nothing to see here!

Just another case of foreign journalists doing the work that American journalists(?) refuse to do.

I’m guessing David Cameron didn’t see this video before he made an obsequious ass of himself rolling on the Oval Office floor to get his belly rubbed.

The guy’s part of the rainbow and unicorns crowd that overdoses frequently on hopium.

Yes! I just found this myself and wanted to post it here. When I googled, your post came up #1.

This is something Greg Gutfeld would love. I doubt the more established media would be interested, but if anyone knows Greg's email and can get it to him, maybe this will eventually go viral.
