You mean to tell me that all over the world people have "their own particular issues and their own particular politics."? Astounding insight.
I think I was maybe 8 when I came to this realization. Glad Uhbama has a glimmer of understanding now. ;-)
The bad thing about that is that the awestruck female reporter just nodded and smiled as he said that sentence, though. You could tell by looking at her that she would have just loved to have had her way with him.
It’s absolutely repulsive how this guy is treated by the press and it’s even worse in the European press with the exception of a few British columnists.
Yeah - it was a softball question and he still (IMHO) screwed it up and gave America a black eye - or wait maybe that was his idea ... Can’t believe you read all 150+ posts on this ;-)
how did this guy become President Obama
The only foreign language he knows is Obonics.
Ya Betcha! ...that is as long as they can twist it that he was quoting Sarah Palin or something like that!
Others have said in the past that MAYBE what he is doing there is killing time till his people send him info so he can answer. It is a tragedy that during potentially the worst crisis in 70 years, a puppet is in charge.
A worsening financial crisis, runs on banks and a seemingly cranky McCain sharing the same party as an unpopular President (which I think was MOSTLY due to high gas prices). That, and massive fraud which allowed him plenty of sway, a meek press and the color of his skin which scared most naysayers lest they were hurt by his shady playing of the race card. In other words, “a perfect storm,” I’m shocked it was as close as it was. When one looks at how the economy crashed in Sept/Oct- all over the world, after high gas prices and food prices earlier in the year, and the popping of Greenspan’s last bubble (which was mistakenly ? created to save the day after his last bubble popped) it was a shame we didn’t have a better candidate.
Hey Obama ! In austrian “your a dumbass” means your “still a dumbass” in english !
I am soooo sick of this punks polidiots posers and his handlers trying to pass off this sock monkey as a precedent !
Doom on his anti americanism !
Thank you for the reply, I greatly appreciate it...
I really wish I had learned more about my relatives and their native language when my Mother was alive (we probably all feel that way though about some things when we lose a loved one)
I was only 24 when she passed away, and I had 3 young children, and she lived out-of-state, so time seemed to really slip away. Too many questions unasked...). I know her father came to the US before WWI and my Mom was born in 1939. I kind of got the feeling that with the outbreak of WWII her parents rarely spoke German except when with friends... I can definitely understand why they would make that choice.
You’d figure little Hitler would know something about German, eh?
Maybe he should have asked the Queen to explain The Sound of Music to him since she loves showtunes so much.
Ahh, He’s a goof-butt, but he’s our little goof-butt.
Very neat! Thank you so much. I’m pretty sure what she said was “Guten Abend”. With an accent and sliding the words together almost, I can see how that could sound like “Gutten Noggin” to me!
I LOVE Brahm’s Lullaby. I actually sang a few songs in German during my High School voice lessons... Let me tell you — that’s not so easy for someone who speaks English! LOL
My favorite German song to sing is Mozart’s Wiegenlied (”Schlafe mein Prinzchen”).
Thanks again for all the information you’ve shared with me. Through this conversation I’ve remembered a lot of things about my Mom, and that’s always really nice... :)
Love your post! Especially the “polidiots”! I’m going to have to remember that one... :)
Add “Presstitutes” to that wordsmithing file as well friend.....:o)
Why, thanks. I hope it sticks. Every time I see Obama on TV(which isn’t often, since I avoid it like the plague), I immediately think “President Clueless”. It suits him perfectly.
" I don't know what the term is in Austrian,"
If Bush had ever said anything this stupid, it would have led the news.
Hmmmm...does May 23, 2006 ...George W. Bush... Greek and Grecian...jog any memory cord??
It's all the headlines addressed for days in the time period.
Hypocrisy, double standards, biased, selective revisionist memories, enablers/apologists...we should all be used to these reporting manipulations by now.
Oh wait ... then there's the nuclear disarm tact - while ignoring that every ME nation wants all of a sudden to get nuclear power, NK, Iran, proceed without effective sanction, we should just dump ours. NK went 8 years fooling x42 - uhbama will be even less a challenge. ARRRRRRRGH! :-(
As far as Obama's ignorance, he is appearing more like an incompetent communist. I can't say those behind the throne are but maybe, just maybe they are victims of their own role in destroying the educational system.
Yep, that’s one of my favorites as well! :)
The other one I picked up the other day for Obama:
“The Fresh Prince of Bill Ayers”! ROFL
Thanks! I will definitely try that tonight. :)
Keeper indeed !
The fresh prince of Bill Ayers is just funny and sad all at the same time !
Glad to help! :)
wow! I want some of those! (they wont do any good in Tokyo, but just for some friends back in native Kentucky)... ;-)
Don’t they speak Australian in Austria?
That would be great! I’m so glad you like it. Thank you!
[Be sure to tell your friends, too! LOL I’m going to be re-designing some of my election products over the next few days to remove the McCain/Palin ‘08 wording as well...]
Yes, no Austrian, Siwss, Belgian, or Luxembourg languages. Whate else?
He does not seem incompetent to his supporters, for they, like Julie Nixon Eisenhower and Christopher Buckley, are as uninformed as he!
I wonder what language they speak in those seven extra states Obama always talks about.
I am so damn sick and tired of hearing the as* kissers talk about how smart he is. He seems anything but smart to me. He and Biden make a good pair. There is a difference between well trained and being intelligent.
When happens this tyrannys Kristalnacht? They have already come for the executives, and people did nothing. They have already come for the unborn, and people (even Notre Dame) did nothing. They are coming for the talk radio hosts and their listeners. How soon till they come for you?
FK that! He will push too far and then they will feel the wrath of angry Americans.
How ‘bout Yiddish?
Oh, I’d forgotten that moronic quote from The Bama, one of the quotes that started it all: started giving us both an idea of how stupid he was generally, how much he sounded like an adolescent , while also providing hints of what was to come in whole area of putting down America culturally. Kind of a 3 in 1 quote!
"I agree that immigrants should learn English, but instead of worrying about whether immigrants can learn English they'll learn English you need to make sure your child can speak Spanish. You should be thinking about how can your child become bilingual. We should have every child speaking more than one language." [...] "You know, it's embarrassing when Europeans come over here, they all speak English, they speak French, they speak German. And then we go over to Europe and all we can say is 'merci beaucoup!'"
Mr. Obama, April 2009:
"It was also interesting to see that political interaction in Europe is not that different from the United States Senate. There's a lot of -- I don't know what the term is in Austrian -- wheeling and dealing -- and, you know, people are pursuing their interests, and everybody has their own particular issues and their own particular politics."
Trick question. Politics of lingual destruction. :)
Wow. There’s something in the news EVERY DAY to make you cringe about this administration and B.Obozo. It’s rekindled my interest in the news again, along with SNL!
