President Barack Obama Flubs Spelling of "Respect" During Aretha Franklin Women of Soul Tribute

"When Aretha first told us what R-S-P-E-C-T meant to her," he began, causing the crowd to laugh.....

Sure, anyone can flub a word while speaking, but Obozo misspelled the simple word "R-E-S-P-E-C-T" which is the famous name of the song he was trying to praise.

Just imagine the howls of media derision if this had been any conservative public figure..... Dan Quayle, anyone? We'd never hear the end of it, but in this case the groveling media will make light of it, to the extent they even report it at all.

If Barky had grown up in America instead of Indonesia he would have known that song by heart.

It was an unconscious Freudian Slip. In (what passes for) his heart, Obama does not RESPECT anyone, but himself, and sometimes those in his inner-inner circle. He could not bring himself to even spell that word, not out loud, and certainly not for somebody who has been past her prime since about 1995, and rumor has it may have voted republican more than once.

In the warped world of America, a world controlled by the MSM, liberals can rape women, or kill them in their car, and all is well. Conservatives misspell a word (not even misspell it, but rely on a card handed to him by an educator), and kiss his career good-bye.

So, the question is:
a) Can obama not spell RESPECT?
b) Is he too stupid to read?
c) Can the guy behind the teleprompter not spell?
d) obama really trusts what the teleprompter is telling him to say?

I think the added irony is he flubbed the spelling of that particular word at a time when our nation is receiving the least respect we’ve probably ever had in our history thanks largely to Maobama.

He has earned none. And he has no respect for America, our country, our people , our history , our faith, or our values. So he has no reason or need to know how to spell it. It’s a foreign concept to our number one illegal immigrant.

The only thing he should be spelling is Moochelle’s name on a conjugal form in prison, though I doubt she’d fit in the cell.

Exactly right. The interloping lying locust king wouldn't dare flub a muslim prayer though.

There is a very good reason why Obama had trouble spelling the word respect. The word is not in his vocabulary. He simply doesn’t know what it is. He has no respect for anyone. Now, “contempt” is a word I am absolutely certain he could spell.

The only way at his age, you make those kinds of mistakes is if you were raised in a foreign or third world country with one english speaking parent. And even then, have a complete lack of interest in the U.S. after you’re handed entry here.

Apparently the media has not yet received the news. By presidential degree, that IS the way to spell rspect now.

He has the weirdest mental lapses. Remember when he signed that guest book (in Great Britain, if I recall correctly), and wrote the wrong YEAR?
