I wonder what his favorite movie superhero is? Underdog *-?

His superpower if I had my way.. How about 'disappearing' permanently. He could share it with Bill Clinton.

How about speaking coherently without a teleprompter?

Nevermind, Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney can already do that.

He has probably spent more time thinking about this than any substantive issue.

An invisible Bill Clinton would cause a great many problems for women everywhere.

He already has a superpower. Every time he opens his mouth, some of our prosperity vanishes instantly.

This is absolutely astonishing. Wishing for “superpowers.” Both the journalist and O completely discredit themselves here. Given the gravity of the problems facing the U.S., for the POS having this stoner-like conversation is pathetic.

It is actually a very cunning idea:

Genisis 11:6 - The LORD said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.

"I would love to be able to speak any language," the president said.

"Especially Austrian," he added. "I would really love to be able to speak Austrian."

a "weird superpower"— the ability to speak any language and the ability to fly

It can be easily arranged.

So, when I wanted to learn a new language -- Russian -- I went to courses, and then got into an immmersian course in Russia itself. Then, when I wanted to learn a little Spanish, every time I would encounter a latino, I would ask them the translation of one word. Eventually, I would ask them in Spanish itself.

Obama wants to learn languages. So, what has he done about it? This ain't Affirmative Action no more....

“Universal translator” is the worst superpower I’ve ever heard of.

I’d rather have Batman’s ... superhuman self-discipline, and billions of dollars.

So dufus wants the “super power” to lie in every language.

How about that?

They do have schools that teach languages. With due diligence, he could speak maybe six languages.

But all he knows is "Muslim speak" and street jive. That's the real reason for the monitor...to control his language.

Somehow I think this wish goes back to his Muslim background.

Does the devil speak every language?? Of course....

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”.

Or is that too far fetched?
