Rio de Janeiro (AP) - His meet-and-greet with the U.S. president was bumped to Saturday, and when the White House announced his official visit, they misspelled his name.
But when Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva becomes the first Latin American leader to sit down with President Barack Obama this weekend, he brings undisputed clout.
Silva runs the world's fifth-most-populous nation and ninth-largest economy and has close ties with leaders across the political spectrum. He's been asked to lobby Obama for free trade on behalf of conservatives in Colombia and for dropping the U.S. embargo against communist Cuba. Even Hugo Chavez has asked Silva to carry an olive branch to the new administration.

Incredible. They didn’t spell his name right?
Obama is heading the most powerful country in the world and the people he hires are illiterate.
Which restaurant in Chicago is he eating at this weekend?
They’re all supposed to be so much smarter and sophisticated than the Bush administration too! Remember how the world was going to love us. We’re going to be a laughingstock if this stuff continues.
Aw c’mon now... the sheep are comforted so long as The One can say and spell H-O-P-E and C-H-A-N-G-E.
The amateur hour continues.
Obama continues to FAIL.
Obama achieves another first.-—his selected administration is the most incompetent in American history.
“Amazingly enough Castro, Chavez, and that little sawed off Iranians names tags are always perfectly spelled by this administration...”
And 0 can in an oh-so-sophisticated manner, pronounce the words Pawk-ee-stawn and Tawlee-bahn.
I though 0 was going to rescue America’s tattered reputation around the world. I’ll bet he doesn’t dis Putin or Hu like he has those “tiny little countries.”
How did they misspell his name?
To be fair, I tend to misspell Obambi’s name as “That Farging Icehole” (/Roman Moroni), but it’s mostly typographical.
Once - oops, sorry, blame some poor underling
Twice, three times, four times, whatever the current count - nope, that’s intentional
Smarter and more sophisticated than the Bush administration? Ha!
Obama’s grammar is poor and he misuses words. No wonder he never wrote any articles for the Law Review.
In terms of sophistication, he flunks there too. Did you see how he holds a wine glass? What a vulgarian. His wife may be worse. She shows up in cocktail dresses for official meetings and calls black-tie events formal. (White-tie is formal, black-tie is semi-formal.) Grrr...they get me irritated.
It may indicate stupid, illiterate ACORN workers are running the show.
Come on, it’s not like it was Hugo Chavez or whoeverthehell the leader of Hamas is.
Lula’s sharper than Obama. The Columbia FTA is critical. Cuba opening would kill the Castro regime as well.
This is Obama’s idea of a charm offensive. Light on the charm and heavy on the offensive.
At least Hamas, Castro and Chavez are happy.
Remember how they tore in to Bush I when he misspoke about a register scanner?
Could you imagine if Palin had made that remark?
Dixie Kitchen in Hyde Park
bad, Bad, BAD!
Obama offends a brazillion people...
And then what? Another 4 years...that’s what. The GOP has yet to field or even hype up a single person who can run against the wind machine known as Obama in 2012.
