This may be a "forest for the trees" thing but his answer aside from what language Austrians speak is an attempted hit on America as the only place he thought "wheeling and dealing" occurred and people were (gasp) "pursuing their interests" etc.

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. ;-)


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.

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 ;-)

I don't know what the term is in Austrian

The only foreign language he knows is Obonics.

The typical way to say good night is "gute Nacht." That is the only one I'm familiar with. There might be some variants to that, though.

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.

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... :)

It may border on a new version of BDS, but maybe we should start readying the bumper stickers:

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.

I didn't see it so I don't know if TOTUS was there or not but I do know that our POTUS seems never to miss a chance to denigrate the USA and ingratiate himself with all the wrong people - most importantly with China on this trip - setting them up in the IMF to replace our dollar with a "basket of currencies" - lookout USA!

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! :-(

German is the official language of Austria. Why can't English be our official language? It seems like the majority of the countries in the world have an official language.

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.

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!

Mr. Obama, July 2008:

"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."
