    So, Obama, I will not turn your tendency to mispeak (and, then reprimand your Teleprompter) into an international incident, but I will note it with some glee:
    On the eve of the Mexican holiday, Obama on Monday had an event in the East Room of the White House with Mexico's Ambassador Arturo Sarukhan (sahr-oo-KHAN').


    Obama joked that it was "Cinco de Cuatro," botching a play on the Spanish word for "four" when he meant to say "Cuatro de Mayo," or the Fourth of May. He tried again, but he still did not get it right.
    This from a unilingual man who's embarrassed that more of us can't speak French. If only he were as conversant in Spanish as he is in noted non-language "Austrian," this wouldn't have happened.


    Genius President

    The press does cart wheels and has funny tingling up their legs over obama's speaking ability and intelligence. Turns out take away his tele-prompter and he is tongue tied!:smilewinkgrin::smilewinkgrin::smilewinkgrin::tongue3:

    If I were Obama's press secretary, I think I would have to stand in front of all of the reporters & say, "At this time, I will not answer anymore questions. Please refer all of your questions to his speech writer, Mr. Teleprompter." :laugh:

    He may be correct, guys.

    Since Cinco de Mayo is basically a drinking holiday, maybe he drank a fourth of a fifth.

    :eek: :D

    I was watching Hannity last night & he was showing clips of Obama's bloopers during his speeches. He showed the one mentioned in this thread. The one that stood out was when he was talking to a group, he was talking about "our fallen heroes" & how some of them were joining him at that speech.

    You know, if President Bush had said this, the nitwits on the left would be howling about it forever.
