Obama Makes Two Major Foreign Policy Gaffes on Europe Trip
breitbart.com ^ | 3/27/14 | Raheem Kassam and Andre Walker

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 Georgia’s 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.

I remember Romney’s overseas trip in 2012 that was called gaffe filled by the media.

What a moron. Had to post, just to say this really TICKS ME OFF, that we have such an unfit President...you have to be a special kind of arrogant and stupid to make these completely avoidable and hideously embarrassing mistakes!! (see my previous snarky rant re: Kosovo...it’s appalling!)

And will the major US state controlled media report these instances? (Rhetorical question) Russia Today would be more likely to mention it.

I'd like to know when someone is going to interview the press and ask questions like, " why do you protect certain politicians and not others. Then give examples of Dan Quayle and the potato misspelling and then Obama saying that there are 57 states.

If I was Boehner, I’d call a press conference. I’d have an easel with a large photo under a cover. I’d have a stand with a cover. I’d walk out and pull the cover off the easel. There would be a big photo of Obama. Then, I’d pull the cover off the stand. There would be a red reset button. I’d push the reset button and walk away. I wouldn’t say a word.

Barry at the Bat: A Ballad of the Former Superstar Sung in the Year 2014

The outlook wasn’t 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
They’d 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 Barry’s manner as he stepped into his place;
There was pride in Barry’s bearing and a smile on Barry’s face.
And when, responding to the cheers, he spritely took a bow,
No stranger in the crowd could doubt that Barry’d 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 Barry’s eye, a sneer crossed Barry’s face.

Then the mighty amplifiers shot Barry’s 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 can’t 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 it’s likely they’d have walked away had not Barry raised his hand.

With the air of superiority, great Barry’s 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 wouldn’t let Putin have his way again.

The sneer is still on Barry’s lip, his teeth are clenched in rage;
He pounds with child-like petulance, his fist upon the page.
And now the Teleprompter rolls and Barry’s words begin to flow,
But his words are fluff, the magic’s 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.

Maybe they’re not ‘gaffes’. But only a continuation of lies and deception all to ‘sell’ a certain audience. Anywhere.

Cut Obama some slack here. It’s hard enough having to read what’s on the teleprompter. You can’t expect him to know about it as well. That’s asking too much of someone with zero leadership skills and zero executive skills.

Bingo.
His party and his media have been covering for his complete lack of needed experience. And they claimed that he would get the experience by on the job training. Still hasn’t happened.
He is still the same sock puppet plucked off the streets of Chicago that he was in ‘08.
He is only what he is told to be. What a waste.
