Image the Ridicule if GWB did This … Barack Obama Refers to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin as President
No Double Standard Here …
“I suspect when I speak to President..eh.. Prime Minister Putin tomorrow, he will say the same thing.”
What, who is the PM of Russia? Hmm … Can I use my Life-line or Teleprompter?
During President Barack Obama’s much publicized trip to Moscow to push the reset button with relations with Russia, The Chosen One made yet another speaking gaffe. Obama referred to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin as President in error.
In a slip of the tongue, U.S. President Barack Obama described Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Monday as president, echoing the widely held view that he remains Russia’s most powerful man.
Putin surrendered the presidency to protege Dmitry Medvedev last May to take the lesser post of prime minister, but most political analysts say Putin remains Russia’s ultimate decision maker.
Obama is supposed to be so much smarter than GWB, right? Or will Obama once again blame his mistake on GWB or his teleprompter? One can only sit back and imagine the media’s mockery of Bush if he had done this.
You would hear comments like ignorant, misinformed, stupid, uneducated cowboy and fool. The media headline would have read, “President Bush Doesn’t Know Putin’s Title” or would it be”GWB Doesn’t Know Didly”. However, when Obama makes yet another verbal gaffe it is because he is tired or some pathetic excuse dreamed up by the apologists. Instead, the Great Orator makes another gaffe which all people tend to do, except when it’s a Democrat like Obama, it is swept under the rug.
Who says it’s difficult to find material for political humor for the Late Night Talk Shows on Obama?
