Skip to comments.Obama Can't Spell... But He Can Sure Spend Your Money

It has been another disastrous week for President Obama. In a new Fox News poll, the Presidents approval rating is at 38 percent, the lowest score of his presidency. Americans are unhappy with his handling of the economy, healthcare, and foreign policy. In effect, people are dissatisfied with his entire agenda because nothing is working.
The economy is still in the doldrums and job creation is very weak. The unemployment rate moved up to 6.7 percent in February, but the real situation is much worse as millions of Americans have become despondent and left the workforce.
The Presidents signature program, Obamacare, is a disaster that continues to unfold. In a new survey of uninsured people, we learned that only 10 percent will sign up for a private plan available under the new marketplaces. This low number is a clear indication that Obamacare, which was billed as a way to reduce the number of uninsured in the country, is failing.
In the Ukraine, Vladimir Putin is strengthening his grip on Crimea, despite the Presidents warnings. Compared to Putin, Obama looks weak and indecisive. Whether the issue is Syria, missile defense or the Ukrainian crisis, Putin seems to outmaneuver the President each time.
After such a tough week, it was no surprise that the President wanted to relax and forget about his troubles last night. He hosted a White House celebration for the legendary women of soul music. Unfortunately, during his introduction of Aretha Franklin, the President misspelled the word respect.
He said, When Aretha first told us what R-S-P-E-C-T meant to her, she had no idea it would become a rallying cry for African Americans and women. Despite howls of laughter, the President continued with his remarks without correcting his mistake. He either does not know how to spell respect or does not care that people think he is a bad speller.
This is worse than Dan Quayle misspelling potato, but of course the media will give Barack Obama a pass because they support his liberal policies. The media labeled George W. Bush as an idiot, but he released his college and graduate school transcripts. We are still waiting for Barack Obama to release his grades, leading some to wonder what he is hiding.
Many in the liberal media lampooned Bush and Quayle, but protect President Obama. In fact, some historians and liberal commentators refer to the President as a genius without providing any evidence to buttress their claims.
One Obama supporter, historian Michael Beschloss, even made the ridiculous assertion that Barack Obama had an IQ off the charts. He laughably claimed that Obama is probably the smartest guy ever to become President.
The President is so smart he does not have to bother with spelling. In addition, he does not worry about basic accounting or understand that the government cannot spend money which it does not have.
His upcoming Florida vacation shows how reckless President Obama can be with public funds. This excursion to Key Largo will be the Presidents third vacation this year. The Obama family will escape the cold and enjoy golf, fine dining, the beaches and the warm weather of South Florida.
While millions of Americans are struggling, the President and his family continue to charge taxpayers millions of dollars for extravagant vacations. Earlier in the year, the Obama family vacationed in Hawaii and Southern California. Last year, they enjoyed South Africa, Ireland, Marthas Vineyard and a $2 million Hollywood trip so the President could appear on The Tonight Show and raise funds with liberal mega donors.
For Barack Obama, it must be nice to be treated like a king, just dont ask him to spell the word.
I saw where Bill Clinton’s meager SAT score surfaced this week. I suppose we’ll have to wait until 2035 to see Baraq’s.
If this had been Dan Quayle...oh never mind.
Elites figure Obama must be a "genius" because he bamboozled them.
And they all know how smart they are.....
Well... that’s the way it was spelled on the teleprompter. So that’s what he said.(/s)
“Americans are unhappy with his handling of the economy, healthcare, and foreign policy. In effect, people are dissatisfied with his entire agenda ...”
I do not feel sorry for them, they are getting what they voted for.
Nor can he do math or govern.
Reader Marhefka wrote: I don’t understand. Does the author mean that Obama’s Teleprompter can’t spell? To which Reader James 55 replied: It also means he’s not quick enough on his feet to correct a teleprompter error. This buffoon is so bad he makes Carter look like Winston Churchill.
The next executive order...It will now and forever be, that the spelling of this word will be as “I” have stated...Rspect.
Spelling issues aside, I was thinking about the song itself. Remember it came out in 1967. O was only 5 or 6 yrs old when his white mother whisks him off to Indonesia for the next 4 yrs. The song itself is meaningless to him. Just like his “black” identity. He was raised by a white woman with white grandparents. He is forever trying to “get in touch” with the black side of which he knows nothing about. Neither he nor his family were “down for the struggle” in the race riots of 1967 through ‘70 or ‘71. Ughhh! He’s such a poser.
It’s worse than a misspelled word. Mr. “uber cool” botched a primary line in the song. The melody doesn’t work for RSPECT.
The American people are Obama’s collective sugar daddy.
He doesn’t know how to add or subtract either. That’s why he got us in so much debt. He doesn’t know what ‘trillion’ means either.
More like Obama’s battered wife (with family money).
