The 'Rats and the MSM used to laugh about what a "yokel" President Bush was, but here comes Obama passing out Region 1 DVDs and calling all non-American's foreigners as if anywhere in The One's eyesight is automatically part of the United States.

Did that mean he was talking to himself?

He bows to the Saudi king; appears tongue-tied at a news conference; gives an i-pod to the Queen, and now this. There is no way the MSM can continue to cover for this boob.

A “foreigner” is anyone who is not a TelePrompTer.

I’m almost sure he was being tongue in cheek. Europe is his favorite country after all.

Oh he tried to cover it up... saying that by “foreigner” he meant himself... big joke... I’m sure the Europeans found it funny... not. He’s a laugh a minute.

Wow-

I never thought “Stand up, Chuck.” could be beat. Not in a million years could someone top that one.

I was wrong.

I think it was a true mispeaking on his behalf... after all, an American considering everyone else in the world a foreigner is not really something Europeans find funny.

They might strip out the comment, then... so capture it... I only linked to Macleans after I saw the presser on Fox and couldn’t find anyone online who mentioned it.

Another MSM favorite was ‘hubris’. Can’t think of anyone more deserving of that description than Zero.

"but the president, not being an idiot, declines to give specifics"

I wonder what basis the author has for forming this opinion on his intelligence.
