Skip to comments.Obama Makes Two Major Foreign Policy Gaffes on Europe Trip
Posted on 03/27/2014 11:53:13 AM PDT by ColdOne
Speaking at the press conference after the EU-US summit yesterday the US President wrongly suggested that Georgia "is not currently on a path to NATO membership". In fact the country has been on the path to membership since 2008.
At the North Atlantic Council in Bucharest that year the attending Heads of State and Government agreed the following statement: "NATO welcomes Georgias Euro-Atlantic aspirations for membership in NATO. We agreed today that they will become members of NATO."
Former Georgian Ambassador to London Giorgi Badridze, told Breitbart London: "President Obama's remarks could hardly have come at a worse time or have been formulated in a worse manner.
"Firstly, it's wrong to link Georgia's aspirations for NATO membership with those of Ukraine. Georgia has been working hard to achieve more progress in that direction, while Ukraine formally withdrew from the process years ago.

Obama Wins Gaffe Master Award 2014 and it’s only March
You beat me to it.
Imagine if Bush had said this - it would be headline news in the mdm. But with Obunghole saying it?......crickets
Hasn’t Biden taken credit for leading the charge to get Georgia into Nato?
I’ll answer that for you. Obama made a mistake. Quale is stupid. That’s exactly what they would say.
No wonder he never talks to President Jimmy Carter.
Yeah, he’s been to Atlanta several times.
Barry at the Bat: A Ballad of the Former Superstar Sung in the Year 2014
The outlook wasnt brilliant for the new G-8 that day;
The score stood one to zero, and Putin still had cards to play.
And when Kerry failed with Lavrov, and Merkel came up lame,
A sickly silence fell when Romney said Obama was to blame.
A straggling few got up and left in deep despair. The rest
Clung to that hope which springs eternal in the breast;
They thought, if only Barry could but get his chance to speak
Theyd put up even money he’d be the hero of the week.
But Hollande preceded Biden against Putin on the make,
And the former was limp wristed and the latter was a flake;
So upon that stricken multitude grim melancholy grew
For there seemed but little chance of Barry getting his debut.
But Hollande collpsed so quickly, to the wonderment of all,
And Biden played the Joker and took another slapstick fall.
And when the dust had lifted they saw what had occurred,
There was Putin at the border making Yanukovych look absurd
Then from 5,000 throats and more there rose a lusty yell;
It rumbled through the valley, it rattled in the dell;
It knocked upon the mountain and recoiled upon the range,
For Barry, mighty Barry, was advancing to the stage.
There was ease in Barrys manner as he stepped into his place;
There was pride in Barrys bearing and a smile on Barrys face.
And when, responding to the cheers, he spritely took a bow,
No stranger in the crowd could doubt that Barryd show them how.
Ten thousand eyes were on him as his Teleprompter spooled;
Five thousand tongues were cheering Barry still looks really cool!
Then while the waiting multitudes felt their heartbeats start to race
Defiance gleamed in Barrys eye, a sneer crossed Barrys face.
Then the mighty amplifiers shot Barrys words hurtling through the air,
And Barry stood a-watching it in his haughty grandeur there.
But through the air and out the doors his empty words unheeded sped,
That cant be Barry speaking!, his doting followers said.
From the benches, black with people, there went up a muffled roar,
Like the beating of the storm-waves on a stern and distant shore.
What has happened to our savior?, yelled the people on the strand.
And its likely theyd have walked away had not Barry raised his hand.
With the air of superiority, great Barrys visage shone;
He stilled the rising tumult; he bade the speech go on;
He signaled to the prompter, and once more the canned words flew;
But the audience still ignored it and Putin said, Strike two.
Fraud! cried the maddened thousands, and echo answered fraud;
But one scornful look from Barry and the audience was awed.
They saw his face grow stern and cold, they saw his muscles strain,
And they knew that Barry wouldnt let Putin have his way again.
The sneer is still on Barrys lip, his teeth are clenched in rage;
He pounds with child-like petulance, his fist upon the page.
And now the Teleprompter rolls and Barrys words begin to flow,
But his words are fluff, the magics gone, the charlatan’s laid low.
Oh, somewhere in the liberals’ land the sun is shining bright;
The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,
And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout;
But there is no joy in The Netherlands - mighty Barry has struck out.
President MomJeans: “I are stupid - just axe me.”
Maybe the Austrians slipped him a Joke Teleprompter that showed his speech in Austrian...
Zero is gaining in wisdom.
Five post in, and someone said what needed to be said.
I knew I could count on you. :^)
Is that the “flexibility” he mentioned to Medvedev?
DO, good to “see” you.
Glad you saw my once-in-a-decade flash of brilliance!
Ha! Once in a decade? More like once an hour...
