Yup, no double standard here. What would the MSM had done if a Republican president had made such blunders? Remember when the media was so quick to attack Mitt Romney when he went overseas around the time of the Summer Olympics? However, mums the word when it comes to their protected president. Of course it is perfectly ok for President Obama to struggled to pronounce the name of Aung San Suu Kyi, the most prominent human rights activist in the world. Maybe English is his second language too? And of course Obama calling Burma ‘Myanmar’ as a so-called diplomatic courtesy.
From the UK Telegraph:
It is only two weeks since his re-election, and his second term remains two months away, but Barack Obama is already blundering again on the world stage, with the kind of gaffes that would have been plastered on the front page of The New York Times if they had been committed by George W. Bush when he was in the White House. Obama’s first term was littered with foreign policy gaffes, and there is every chance the second term will be more of the same.
On his trip to Asia this week, President Obama struggled to pronounce the name of Aung San Suu Kyi, the most prominent human rights activist in the world. As The Associated Press reports (hat tip: Drudge Report):
As Obama stood next to the world’s most recognized democracy icon, he mispronounced her name repeatedly.
Ever gracious, Suu Kyi did not correct her American guest for calling her Aung YAN Suu Kyi multiple times during his statement to reporters after their meeting.
Proper pronunciation for the Nobel laureate’s name is Ahng Sahn Soo Chee.
Oh, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton seemed so inspired by Obama’s words, she slept. I think it is safe to say that both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were both caught napping before, during and after the Benghazi terror attacks.
