Barack Obama Flubs the Spelling of “Rspect”, Oops “Respect” While Praising Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul … Obama Got Swag, Really?
Teleprompter reading mishap alert … Anurag Kashyap has nothing to fear from President Barack Obama.
Hmm, the president who does not know how many states there are in the United States, also appears to have no clue how to spell the word respect. Barack Obama misspelled the word “respect” while giving praise to Aretha Franklin at a tribute to the Queen of Soul. Obama managed to spell it “R-S-P-E-C-T.” Are you kidding me, Really? This brought to us by the most intelligent, smartest president ever with an IQ off the chart, or so they say. Who find else finds it telling that Obama can’t spell the word respect?
Mr. Obama paid tribute to Franklin for turning her signature song “Respect” into “a rallying cry for African-Americans, women and then everyone who felt marginalized.”
The pumped-up audience gave a hearty laugh but was more than willing to forgive the president for spelling it “R-S-P-E-C-T.”
In addressing the crowd, Mr. Obama said, “When Aretha first told us what R-S-P-E-C-T meant to her…”
The media and late night comedy shows HERE and HERE crucified John Travolta for botching the name of Idina Menzel at the Oscars, but where are they with Obama’s screw up? Oh that dreaded “E”. But of course there is no media bias. Just ask former VP Dan Quayle how the media dealt with him with his extra added “E”.
No wonder he has never released his college transcripts.
UPDATE I: Imagine that Maureen Dowd and I actually agree on something … “IF you can’t spell it, you can’t get it.”
I had asked above, “Who find else finds it telling that Obama can’t spell the word respect?” It would appear one person who did was of all people was the NY Times Maureen Dowd. Barack Obama most certainly does have a “Swag” and “respect” problem. However, Patti LaBelle seems to think BO’s got Swag. YIKES, let’s hope that Patti does not mean the urban dictionary version. I thing she meant “SWAGG”. In any event, it would seem that Obama does not know how to spell respect, and LaBelle does not know what the definition of Swagg is.
President Obama pulled a Quayle Thursday night at a White House performance by the women of soul and muffed the title of Aretha Franklin’s anthem. “R-S-P-E-C-T,” he said, looking a bit confused and eliciting laughter.
When Patti LaBelle took the stage, she told Obama, “Baby, you’ve got swag.”
Swag and respect are exactly what the president needs. He’s got a swag gap with Russia. His administration, after belatedly figuring out what was going on in Ukraine, is improvising as the uber-swaggering Vladimir Putin once more rolls in with tanks anywhere he likes.
Obama says he wants to be an ESPN Sports Center host after he retires as president. Scared Monkeys says, why wait …
HOPE & CHANGE … Well now we know what Barack Obama’s master plan was in getting the job as president of the United States. It was a resume builder for his dream job, to be a host at ESPN’s Sports Center. As stated at Hot Air, now it makes sense why Obama has devoted so much time and effort to March Madness brackets, the Super Bowl, and the World Series for the last five years “while casually mucking up giant parts of his day job” as president. I say, why wait? Please just quit now and go to ESPN, please! Although I will also sadly say that he is probably more qualified to be an ESPN host than he is president. I guess we now know why he takes the job so seriously.
Just don’t let him be the new Jimmy “the Greek” picking sports games, as Barack the Socialist is not very good at picking “winners and losers”. I can see Lee Corso on Game Day doing a perpetual loop of “NOT SO FAST!”
From The Hollywood Reporter:
If you have any doubt as to how much of a sports junkie Barack Obama is, check in with the entertainment moguls who attended a private briefing with the president Nov. 26 before his speech at Jeffrey Katzenberg’s DreamWorks Animation campus in Glendale.
At the end of the conversation — which touched on a myriad of topics, from piracy to Iran — Obama revealed what’s at the top of his bucket list post-White House: “At least I know what I want to do when I retire … host ESPN SportsCenter’s Top 10 list,” Obama quipped as he turned to Disney’s Robert Iger, whose empire includes ESPN.
Weasel Zippers some what agrees, “Well, he is an expert at reading off a teleprompter”.
However, I would remind all as I did intern for a short period of time at a news outlet that everything is not provided to hosts on a teleprompter. Many times a producer is talking in your ear and you have to ad-lib. I would suggest that Barack Obama nt use the video below as his audition tape.
Barack Obama, Clueless and Speechless San Jose, California … The First Time He Has Seen His Remarks is When the MSM Reports tham as Well
The Teleprompter in Chief …
Friday’s embarrassing presser in San Jose, California is just a microcosm of the Obama presidency. Barack Obama stepped up to the mic for to give his prepared remarks except for one problem, he had no prepared remarks to read from and its not like he actually knew what he was talking about without his staff prepared remarks. Good Grief, really? What is Obama, a game show host who needs “dummy” cards in order to actually function? One would think that an individual giving remarks to an audience has some clue as to what they are going to say and uses the written remarks as something to refer to, not have to rely on a prepared statement to read from verbatim. Especially, when you are the President of the United States. Does Obama know anything that is going on, or is it all spoon fed to him? These remarks were about Obamacare. Are you telling me that this president cannot speak to his signature piece of legislation, Obamacare, without prepared remarks, really? Actually Barack Obama, the only person sweating right now should be you with your multitude of scandals you have inflicted upon ‘We the People.”
President Obama took the stage Friday to discuss ObamaCare, only to find that his prepared remarks weren’t at the podium.
The president twice yelled “people!” to his staff before an aide hastily delivered his remarks to the podium.
“Folks are sweating back there right now,” Obama then said through a clenched grin.
According to Obama, he heard about the IRS scandals and others for the first time when the MSM reported on them. Of course most common sense Americans think that is bunk. However, it looks like the first time he learned about his speech remarks is when the media reports it as well. What a joke.
President Barack Obama got off to an awkward and unusual start Friday morning as he took the stage to give a speech on health care reform.
Once he took the podium, he realized he didn’t have anything to talk about.
“Good morning everybody. It is wonderful to see all of you and I want to thank everybody who is here,” he said at the San Jose, California, event. “I think there is only one problem. My remarks aren’t sitting here.”
As the audience began to chuckle, Obama looked off stage, searching for his aides and uttering: “People?”
“Things by Friday afternoon-things get a little challenged,” he added, trying to stall.
Are You Kidding Me!!! The Consoler in Chief Barack Obama … “We’ll Be There for Folks of ‘Monroe’ Oklahoma”
Because the Consoler in Chief cares so much for those “RED” States …
Yesterday, while trying to hide from the three scandals that plague his presidency, at a speech in New Jersey (photo-op), President Barack Obama told a New Jersey crowd that the government would be there for the “folks in Monroe, Oklahoma after the devastation of last week.” His exact words were, “We’ll Be There for Folks of Monroe, Oklahoma.” How nice that he would remember the people of Monroe, OK, just two days after he visited the disastrous devastation following the tornadoes that ripped through leaving death and destruction in its wake. WHAT? Wait a minute, did Obama say MONROE? You mean Monroe, OK was hit by an F5 tornado too?
Obama, the Consoler in Chief who pretends to care actually got the city wrong. ITS MOORE, OKLAHOMA YOU IDIOT!!! How on Earth, just two days after you visited MOORE, OK do you forget the name of the town that was just devastated by an F5 tornado? Seriously, do you care so little? Did it have so little of an impact on you that it took you just two days to forget? I mean really, you can see that Obama is using teleprompters which means he is looking at the words Moore, Oklahoma and still saying Monroe. UNREAL!!!
“We’ll Be There for Folks of ‘Monroe’ Oklahoma”
Hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit
President Obama said the government would be there for the “folks in Monroe, Oklahoma after the devastation of last week” during his address on the Jersey Shore Tuesday afternoon, making him the second Democrat Tuesday to call Moore, the city crushed by a tornado May 20, by the same incorrect name.
Must See TV: Ted Nugent Will Attend Obama’s State of the Union Address as Guest of Rep. Steve Stockman … Previously Stated Obama Is “Piece of Sh*t” … Stockman to Fact-Check SOTU via Twitter #YouLie
POTUS will be giving the SOTU via the TOTUS tonight … #YouLie .
Rocker and pro-Second Amendment, gun rights advocate Ted Nugent is attending Barack Obama’s State of the Union address tonight as a guest of Congressman Steve Stockman TX-R) . How did he make it through the Secret Service background check? Nugent is famous for speaking his mind when it comes to Obama and his policies. During the 2012 president campaign, Nugent declared, “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” A note to Nugent, Obama was reelected and the year’s still not up yet. One can only hope that he is miked for the event and a live streaming video is available as well. Stockman stated, “I am excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent joining me in the House Chamber to hear from President Obama. After the Address I’m sure Ted will have plenty to say.” YA THINK!!!
As the Gateway Pundit reminds us, Nugent is never at a loss for words when it comes to Obama, he once in concert called Obama as “Piece of Sh*t”.
Outspoken musician and gun right supporter Ted Nugent will be Rep. Steve Stockman’s guest Tuesday night at President Obama’s State of the Union address.
Nugent is well known for his defense of the Second Amendment and for his criticism of Obama’s politics. Obama is expected to make gun control a central part of this address.
While appearing at a campaign stop for then-GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney last year, Nugent declared, “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
The Secret Service later interviewed Nugent about his comments.
Steve Stockman announced that his office will run a live Twitter fact-check of the President’s State of the Union address tomorrow. Otherwise known as a “You Lie O’meter”. Following this on Twitter will be better than the SOTU speech, especially as Twitchy states that the #YouLie will probably be the order of the day.
Guess Who Went Off Teleprompter Again & Pulled a Biden … Obama Tells Audience, “Three Proud Words – Made in the USA!”
Some how I hardly think this is Reaganesque or Lincolnesque; however, it might be Bidenesque. Barack Obama does his best impression of Joe Biden …What a great team, The Gaffetastic Duo.
President Barack Obama once again went off his teleprompter and loses the ability to string together a coherent sentence. The smartest President to ever grace the White House, or so we are told, said to a campaign crowd, American manufacturers are making products that we can sell around the world, stamped with “three proud words” … MADE IN THE USA. DOH!!!
Speaking to a roaring crowd, the president said American manufacturers are making products that we can sell around the world, stamped with “three proud words.”
What are they? According to Obama, the “three” words are: “Made in the USA.”
Romney on the attack and talking the Obama failed economy.
Mitt Romney finally went on the offensive and ripped Barack Obama and his policies a new one in Irwin, PA. It was a long time in coming that Romney stepped up to the plate and knocked Obama and the Obama failed economy out of the park. It was an inspired Romney and the crowd loved it. Romney attacked Obama on his crony capitalism of giving money to donors and Obama’s continual blame game. Romney showed a relaxed nature during the speech of seaming Barack and also used whit and humor stating Obama is always looking around for something/someone to blame, ATM, machines, tsunamis, China, Europe, Congress and Romney.
Hey folks did you notice something during Romney’s speech … no teleprompter and with no teleprompter, no gaffes.
Like George W. Bush, maybe English is Barack Obama’s second language as well?
President Barack Obama was at it again with more sports gaffes. The Hoopster in Chief and so-called biggest NBA fan managed to mangle the praising of the newly crowned NBA champs. Obama referred to the champs as the “Miami Heats”. Oops, sounds a bit like GWB and the “Internets”. The MSM was all too quick to pounce on that misspeak and brandish GWB a stumbling boob, but not when it comes to Obama. Of course it was an “apparent” slip if the tongue by the bias, liberal media all too ready to defend their Obamamessiah. As Jamie Wearing Fool opines, why cant the MSM just call it for what it was? However, when your all in and in the tank for a President, what else is a liberal media complex to do?
Unfazed by a partisan spat sparked by his comment on former Red Sox player Kevin Youkilis, President Obama tonight again opined on a professional sports team, publicly praising the NBA champion Miami Heat at a campaign fundraiser in the city.
The only problem this time was that Obama mispronounced the name of the team – referring to it as the “Miami Heats” in an apparent slip of the tongue.
At the top of his remarks at the Jackie Gleason Theater in Miami Beach, Obama said his public recognition of dignitaries and special guests would be “incomplete if I did not congratulate the city of Miami for having the world champion Miami Heats here in town.”
I guess Obama made an apparent slip of the tongue here too (VIDEO) when he said that he did not have the power by executive order to change illegal immigration policy as well?
It was just a couple of days ago when Obama found himself in hot water, or a hot bowl of New England clam chowdah, when he made the foolish comments at a Boston, MA fundraiser thanking the Red Sox fan favorite for Kevin Youkilis. The Yookster was traded to the White Sox, compelling Obama to say … I guess he is going to have to change his socks. Obama received a round of boos from the crowd. Even though White House Press Secretary tried to deny what your ears heard and say they were saying “YOOOK”. Sure they were [eye roll].
Another Off Teleprompter Moment, Talk About Out of Touch … President Barack Obama Booed After Thanking Boston & Red Sox Nation For Kevin Youkilis, “I’m just saying, he’s going to have to change the color of his socks” (UPDATE: WH Press Sec. Tries to Say Audiance not Booing, Saying ‘Yoooook’)
Don’t look now but it appears that Barack Obama went off the teleprompter again, the result … being booed at a Boston fundraiser.
How ignorant could one individual possibly be? President Barack Obama in his less than infinite wisdom was booed at a fund raiser at Symphony Hall when he mocked the crowd by thanking them for former Boston Red Sox 3rd baseman Kevin Youkilis. Brilliant Barack. Youkilis, a Red Sox Nation fan favorite and one the the forever Red Sox heroes that brought Boston and New England a World Series Championship after 86 years, finally breaking the “curse of the Bambino”. Youks was traded following Sunday’s baseball game from the Red Sox to the Chicago White Sox leaving only one player left from the 2004 red Sox world champs. Thus, the Ignoramus in Chief thought it cute the maje a joke of it. Dude, let me make one thing perfectly clear, the Red Sox and their fan base take baseball seriously as compared to you and your so-called being a White Sox fan.
Being booed was probably the last thing President Barack Obama expected from the crowd at a Symphony Hall fundraiser Monday night, but that happened when the president “thanked” Boston for Kevin Youkilis, who was just traded to the Chicago White Sox.
“I’m just saying, he’s going to have to change the color of his socks,” the president said laughing.
This misguided fool actually thought he would not receive boos by his comments. Unreal, who is the one who is out of touch Barack Obama? I guess its good for Obama that he was not running for President in 1920 after Babe Ruth had been traded from the red Sox to the Yankees. I can only imagine the ignorant comment he would have made.
Keep it up Barack and you just may find a way to lose the state of Massachusetts and New England (New Hampshire) while you are at it with ignorant comments regarding Red Sox Nation where baseball is a religion.
UPDATE I: This Administration is nothing more than a bunch of pathetic liars.These idiots cannot even tell the truth when Obama is plainly booed after making a bad joke regarding beloved and recently traded Ken Youkilis. Today White House Press Secretary Jay Carney tried top tell reporters that Obama was not booed, they were saying “YOOOK”.
“There has been some really silly reporting about the president’s remarks regarding Kevin Youkilis last night. It is highly commendable in my view as a Red Sox fan that the president has always refused to pander on sports,” said Carney. “He is a White Sox fan, he owns his fandom of the White Sox. He proved that again last night.”
“Anyone who knows Boston, knows the Red Sox and anyone who was in that room last night knows that the preponderance of people shouting in response to what the president said about Kevin Youkilis were saying ‘Yoooook’ and not ‘Booo,’ for God’s sake,” Carney said.
Dude, let me first start by saying this … as a life long Red Sox fan, I think I know the difference between a “BOO” and a YOOOK”. You Jay Carney, a hired Obama liar would not. Stick to lying about politics. How sad is it that this Administration cannot even tell the truth when it comes to something as simple as Obama telling a bad joke to the wrong crowd.
STRIKE I: Watch the following two videos and you can plainly see the difference between a “BOO” and a “YOOOK”. In the above video you can hear the crowd boo Obama. In the video below, you can hear the distinct difference of “YOOOOK”.
Hear the crowd start to yell “Yoook” at the 55 second mark
STRIKE II: When Obama actually made the foolish remarks in the above, the egg on his face goof actually says at the 28 second mark, “I didn’t think I would get any boos outta here …” Um, Jay … Obama actually admitted he was booed.
STRIKE III: As reported at the Jawa Report, the actual transcript of the event had the audience booing.
I also want to acknowledge former Governor Michael Dukakis, who is here, and his lovely wife Kitty. (Applause.) And finally, Bos, I just want to say thank you for Youkilis.
AUDIENCE: Booo –
THE PRESIDENT: I’m just saying. He’s going to have to change the color of his “sox.” (Laughter and boos.) I didn’t think I’d get any “boos” out of here, but — (laughter) — I guess I shouldn’t have — I should not have brought up baseball. I understand. My mistake.
AUDICEN: Booo –
TOTUS MISSING … ABDUCTED!!!
It would appear that President Barack Obama is learning just how bad of an economy he has created with his failed policies of economic recovery. Thieves stole the truck that contained President Obama’s podiums and audio equipment. How on earth does the President’s property get stolen? An estimated $200,000 worth of equipment was lifted. As stated at Michelle Malkin, “what next, Air Force One up on block?” Would it surprise anyone with this President? the rate Obama is destroying jobs and the economy, I would suspect that the Operation Repo might come for Marine One or Air Force One any day.
NBC12 has uncovered one of those stories that makes you think: “How in the world does that happen?!” A truck filled with President Obama’s podiums and audio equipment was stolen in Henrico just days before his visit to Chesterfield.
We confirmed an investigation with the U.S. Defense Department. There are still a lot of questions. The biggest one being did the thieves intentionally target the President’s truck or did they take advantage of a crime of opportunity and give a big “uh-oh” when they saw what was inside.
More from the Lonely Conservative and comments from TOTUS.
We can only hope that the “Pass my Jobs Bill” lame speech was loaded into the teleprompter that was stolen. What do we have to look forward to .. Obama not being able to use his crutch, the telepropmter, and we might get more of the same like his comments below.
Obama at his finest without his teleprompter when he has to do it on his own
