They said he was “the smartest man in any room.” Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.
In 2008, then-Candidate Obama said on the campaign trail that he had visited “57” states with one more to go. VP Dan Quayle got roasted endlessly for once misspelling potato with an e. At least potato has an e on it when it’s plural. At no time has the United States ever had more than 50 states.
In 2009, President Obama made a speech in Austria in which he lamented not knowing what the term for “wheeling and dealing” was in Austrian. There is no such language as Austrian. The people of Austria speak German.
In 2009, President Obama said the Constitution was written “20 centuries ago.” The United States was founded a little more than 200 years ago, which is two centuries, not 20.
In 2010, during the National Prayer Breakfast speech, President Obama referred to a Navy Corpsman as CORPSE-MAN … three times! It’s CORE-MAN. The P and S are silent, but hey, why should we expect the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces to know something like that?
In 2011, President Obama gave a speech in which he noted, “We’re the country that built the Intercontinental Railroad.” Someone needs to explain to Obama that railroads don’t cross oceans. We are the nation that built the Transcontinental Railroad.
In 2012, President Obama said that business owners didn’t build their businesses. If there’s one thing we can be certain of, it’s that President Obama has never built a business. He’s barely ever even worked for one.
In 2013, President Obama repeated many times that people needn’t fear Obamacare because, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.” Politifact voted Obama’s line the “2013 Lie of the Year”, because millions lost their health care plans due to Obamacare, something we all knew would happen.
In 2014, Obama praised Aretha Franklin, including her world-renowned song, which he called, “R-S-P-E-C-T.” Can someone please buy the president a vowel?
In 2016, Iran held American hostages on a runway until a plane full of $400 million in cash arrived and was paid to them in exchange for the hostages. On August 4, President Obama said, “We do not pay ransom. We didn’t here, and we won’t in the future.” Riiiiiight. That exchange of money for release of prisoners was just a what …. ? I got nothing.
Obama without his Teleprompter
