Theres a lot of -- I dont know what the term is in Austrian -- wheeling and dealing, and people are pursuing their interests, and everybody has their own particular issues and their own particular politics,
he said in response to an Austrian reporters question.
Anybody in the Administration have a copy of “U.S. Presidency for Dummies” handy?
This dipshit’s gonna accidentally start WW3....
That n word is not allowed here either you better have them take it down
I think the TOTUS is toying with him!
The gaffe magnet continues to shine.
Colombia, Harvard, you just have to love affirmative action.
This from the smartest man in the world. Folks I have feeling at some point the MSM is going to find this ground is too fertile not to cultivate! This guy is totally inept without the teleprompter!
Austrian?? Well Gidday Mate, let’s put another shrimp on the barbie???
You got a dictionary?
obama is dumber that a sack full of rocks. One of these days he is going to say something and the whole world will be at war.
Yes Bone head I have posted that word here and it promptly got yanked
Obama is a joke.
I guess the TOTUS didn’t know that there is no Austrian language. Had George Bush said this, Leno and Letterman would spout “stupid George” jokes for the next three months.
Ed, you can’t say that here. This is Mr. Robinson’s private salon and you just walked in with muddy boots.
I do, and I think you might want to get one and check it.
Austria speaks German.
Australia officially English with the exception of the Native tribes and those who sailed from other Island Nations.
The very next person that tells me this clown is brilliant, I’m going to choke out with my bear hands.. while I growl, foam at the mouth and make all kinds of spooky scary noises. You know, kinda what you see at a lib protest group- orgasmic function.
Niggardly is a word meaning, essentially, stingy.
The original post (now removed #2) used a word that does not mean anything.
Words mean things - Rush Limbaugh's been saying this for years, and now the Obamassiah agrees. But you must use the right word to start with!
like he’s “accidentally” destroying the economy of the USA?
So he misspelled it. You do know what he means don’t you?
Neither are politically correct, and one is completely misspelled...real sharp.
an a or an e seems to make a difarnce.
How feakin sad. Never been to Austria nor Germany and never went to college but I knew that the Austrians spoke German.
Our Resident is an idiot......
Save America. Make Obama a one termer if there is still an America left 3 years from now....
German (official nationwide) 88.6%, Turkish 2.3%, Serbian 2.2%, Croatian (official in Burgenland) 1.6%, other (includes Slovene, official in Carinthia, and Hungarian, official in Burgenland) 5.3%. (2001 census)
It may not be in the dictionary but it is a commonly used slang term meaning that something or someone is screwed up or messed up.
My apologies on the misspelling. I missed the “d”.
Hmm I’m surprised he doesn’t call Afghans Afghanese.
He may also thing Austria is one of the 57 states...
That was a very funny controversy, and not just because of the ignorance of the students who were protesting.
The prof involved is VERY liberal. I know him personally.
Out of respect for the commands to respect your elders, I haven’t given him [much] guff about the ordeal.
Leviticus 19:32 ‘Rise in the presence of the aged, show respect for the elderly and revere your God. I am the LORD.’
And Africa is a country.
My sediments exactly! Anyone with half a brain knows Austrians speak Australian! And Latinos speak Latin--yeah that's the ticket!
You won’t see Obama doing that. He is either pretty much gay or bi-sexual. He’d be the guy in the middle in that scenerio with two guys on each end.
Ich bin ein goober.
Lloyd: That's a lovely accent you have. New Jersey?
Lady at bus stop: Austria.
Lloyd: Austria! Well, then. G'day mate! Let's put another shrimp on the barbie!
Lady at bus stop: Let's not.
From "Dumb and Dumber" (1994)
Just to clarify why I said that.
LOL!! Understood...it is an unfortunate word to botch.
Let me offer you my sentiments. :)
I think that I'd have said something along the same lines.
But then again, it ain't my job to know that sort of thing. If I was a diplomat, I'd parse my phrases a bit better.
However, the point is a good one. Press would be all over W for a "mistake" such as this.
One might say "an off-colored joke".
Wonder if he gave a gift to their Head of State also? If so, it was probably a dozen Austrian crystals.
I assume you're referring to the Palin rumor. You may not realize that no actual person has been willing to go on the record about that. The "Martin Eisenstadt" who was named as a source for this rumor is the figment of a hoaxer's imagination.
I have seen no hard evidence whatsoever that Obama is more intelligent than Gov. Palin. Perhaps if he released his college records to squash the rumor that he is an affirmative action case whose only talents are reading from a Teleprompter and mau-mauing white liberals. . .
He should take a quick course in Latin in case he visits Latin America.
Now the TOTUS gave the Queen an Ipod with sound tracks from the Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals. A really big one, the Sound of Music should have been included. Now has Obama never seen the movie? Where does it take place and what language do they refer to? My 4 year old granddaughter knows where TSOM takes place and knows what language Austrians speak. Rent the DVD whenever you get back Mr. O you will learn a lot!
I can’t wait to see this on the 6:00 news tonight!
It will be on all the networks! This is gonna be great!!!
Always trolling aren’t you? Want to explain your post?
