Oops-Obama Shares His 'R-S-P-E-C-T' for the 'Women of Soul' [No Dan Quayle Treatment for Clown]
ABC ^ | Mary Bruce

President Obama has nothing but "R-E-S-P-E-C-T" for the women of soul, even if he accidentally misspelled the title of Aretha Franklin's signature anthem.

In an "oops" moment tonight, the president dropped a letter when paying tribute to the one and only Franklin at the White House concert series event, "In Performance at the White House: Women of Soul."

"When Aretha first told us what R-S-P-E-C-T meant to her...

I bet he could spell it perfectly in Arabic, Farsi or whatever Islamic language he learned in Indonesia.

What’s with all the parties with celebrities?
Oh that’s right, TNIC can do whatever he wants.
Typical POS.

Then there was the time the Smartest Man On Earth signed his name in the VIP guestbook at Westminster Abbey, and wrote down the wrong year.

More importantly, the gaff manifests he isn’t from an American black culture. Even if given a teleprompter, any normal American, especially from a black culture would likely recite the spelling from recall of the song’s lyrics and melody.

Yeah, King Barry (peas be upon him) spends so much time practicing his signature that he forgets about all the unimportant side issues.

And the Big Choomer didn't know the proper way to pronounce Corpsman - he pronounces it as Corpse-man.

Of course wherever he is from they didn't have Navy Corpsman so it is somewhat understandable.

Can’t spell it?
He can’t even define it.
Can’t use it in a sentence.

Has no clue what constitutes respect.

Love the picture! I think you should have included the line before the one you quoted, though.

To paraphrase:

"Mr. Obama, do you agree with mean-spirited Republicans, or do you think that we can stimulate growth through temporary incentives, like an increase in food stamps, extending unemployment benefits, or amnesty for 'undocumented citizens'" ?

Guys, guys, guys.....We have to look at his INTENT and his EFFORT, and not his actual spelling. I bet he worked really, really hard and tried to get it right, but even though it wasn’t spelled properly, we could understand what he was trying to say, and that will be sufficient. signed, the National Education Association (NEA)

The next time the media shows that it practices the double standard, are we going to jump all over them?

Dan Quayle.
G.W. Bush.
Mitt Romney.

Democrats and other insane individuals are given a free pass to misspell, get the number of states wrong, and to rape and sexually harass interns in the oval office.

Not surprising that the zero would misspell respect, since he isn’t deserving of a smidgen of respect.

Dan Quayle might have been correct. I was taught in grade school that either potato or potatoe was correct. The same with the word tomato.
Apparently, he was taught the same.

Miss Ellithorpe was a nasty teacher. Very strict. Now I thank her, but back then she was greatly feared. God forbid you should dangle a participle or misspell a word. LOL

I suspect that the change in lettering came in with the NEA.

Those two are actually related. There are 57 states in the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.

Taqiyya (lying for self-preservation or to advance Islam) is encouraged in the Muslim faith.

Don't forget he also said that there was 57 STATES...

Actually, he alluded to there being 61 states, but no one ever gets that correct. Yes Ann, I am anal and a stickler for details from time to time.

The communist bastard never said that there were 57 states. It just gets repeated over and over. It does sound funny though.

JPG, for those that cannot see, I will 'see' it for them. That 'signature' is the image of a baby being extracted by the head and TERMINATED!

Just look. It is as obvious as the day is long.

The press went after Quayle because they hate Republicans.

Period.

If Obama can't spell or doesn't know how many States are in the United States the MSM gives him a pass. Then the press makes an excuse for themselves... an excuse so lame that no one believes them... It's embarrassing.
