|Obama’s Job Approval Drops Below Carter’s||The difference between us and them: Israelis save drowning Iranians|
Listening to talk radio on the way home from work yesterday evening, and the local host on AM 590 Jeff Ward spent a good portion of my drive home mocking Gov. Perry for mixing up the voting age in the US during an otherwise outstanding speech in New Hampshire yesterday.
Flipped through all of the national and then local news channels after I got home — and all 8 news programs I perused showed the clip of Gov. Perry. There was more than one amused sneer on the face of the “reporter” covering the “story.”
Except I don’t recall a single one of them showing clips of Obama:
- Wondering how to say something in “Austrian” while giving a speech in Austria.
- Thinking that Hawaii is in Asia.
- Claiming that there are 57, not 50, states in the United States (there are 57 Islamic states, of which Obama appears to be more familiar with than the 50 found in the US).
- Not knowing the difference between Great Britain and England:
It is gratifying to see President Barack Obama condemn the disgraceful storming of the British Embassy in Tehran by thugs acting at the behest of the Iranian regime. After all, Obama has been notoriously slow in the past to criticise the brutal actions of the Iranian government after initially extending the hand of friendship to it. But did he really need to make another embarrassing foreign policy gaffe while doing so?
In a press conference this evening, the president referred in stumbling fashion to the “English Embassy” in Iran instead of the British Embassy. One can only imagine the kind of howls of derision that would greet any presidential contender if that kind of basic error were made before, say, the editorial board of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
In case the president is unaware, England forms part of Great Britain, which also includes Scotland and Wales, though not Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. There is no such thing as an “English” embassy anywhere in the world, and there hasn’t been one for several centuries.
Yet we’re supposed to believe in the mythical “great intellect” of Obama (despite any actual proof of said intellect — release your college transcripts, BO. Let us read some of your college papers and thesis. Throw away the teleprompter and speak your own damned words)?
Now ask yourself — why would the MFM jump all over a Gov. Rick Perry (R) gaffe and yet completely ignore the much more frequent and embarrassing gaffes made by Barrack Obama (D). I’m guessing it has a little something to do with the letters after their names, and which one of those letters aligns with their political agenda.
