President Barack Obama admitted Friday in a radio interview broadcast that he yearns for a "weird superpower"the ability to speak any language. But flying might be cool, too.
Obama, speaking to the "Morning Mayhem" crew on 93.3 KOB FM in Albuquerque, also came out in favor of red chili over green, said the best advice he ever got was "be persistent" and revealed that he has never heard the original version of Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" but has watched a gone-viral video of himself performing it. Its a bird! Its a plane! No, its an incumbent president in a tough fight for re-election! (Larry Downing/Re
So what superpower would the most powerful man in the world like to have, one of his questioners asked, noting that parts of "The Avengers" were filmed in New Mexico.
"It's kind of a weird superpower, but if I had something that I could immediately wish for, I would love to be able to speak any language," the president said.
"Now, that's a weird superpowerit might not come in handy to rescue folks from a burning building," he added. "But I've always wished that whatever country I went to, wherever I met somebody who spoke a different language, that I could right away speak their language."
"I'm a big believer in making connections with people. But if it's like an 'Avengers' superpower, then I think the whole flying thing is pretty good," he said. "You can't beat just kinda swooping around. That looks like it'd be fun."

He’ll start by learning to speak Austrian.
It can be easily arranged.
Obama wants to learn languages. So, what has he done about it? This ain't Affirmative Action no more....
Well then, he can kiss my ass. How's that for a connection?
“Universal translator” is the worst superpower I’ve ever heard of.
I’d rather have Batman’s ... superhuman self-discipline, and billions of dollars.
Hey little fantasy boy, how about you stick to striving to stay in the Oval Office for ONE DAY, @s$h¤Le.
So dufus wants the “super power” to lie in every language.
How about that?
He’d have to be proficient in at least ONE language to start out with!!
How about the ability to create jobs or the ability to have a good economy?
But all he knows is "Muslim speak" and street jive. That's the real reason for the monitor...to control his language.
Does the devil speak every language?? Of course....
He does have a ‘superpower’. He speaks out his ass.
He’s already super weird..
Those whom the gods would destroy they first make mad.............
This is very telling. Imagine his embarrassment when he travels the world but, like most Americans, can only speak English. Think about it, of all the super powers he could have he would the one that would most distance him from other Americans, to show that he is a “man of the world”.
Obama already speaks to languages.They are English,Arabic,Kenyan and Indonisian.He’s quite talented.
Imagine if his ‘superpower’ was that HE COULD NOT LIE .
