Obama goof: 'Teutonic' shift in Middle East

Ha Ha Ha, what a brainiac! Should we vote for this genius for a second term as president?

  • Teu·ton·ic (t-t n k, ty-) adj. 1. Of or relating to the ancient Teutons. 2. Of or relating to the Germanic languages or their speakers. n. Germanic.

  • The White House corrects its transcript of Obama's remarks in Austin last night: Internationally, we've gone through a **Teutonic [tectonic] shift in the Middle ...


    In the wake of President Obama's 60 Minutes interview, I noted that he said that we had "denigrated" either the Taliban or Al Qaeda (I forget which).  Lord alone knows what he really meant, but I'm sure he didn't mean that we verbally put them down or insulted them.

    President Malaprop is at it again:

    "Internationally, we've gone through a Teutonic shift in the Middle East that could have enormous ramifications for years to come."

    The White House assured people that the president meant "tectonic."  I suspect, though, that he doesn't know better.  Why do I suspect that?  Because he makes so many of these mistakes.  "Denigrate" instead of, perhaps (?), "decimate;" "corpse-man" instead of "corpsman," "Austrian language" instead of "German;" and on and on with the usual list of mistakes.  At a certain point, one begins to suspect, not that he misspeaks, but that he doesn't know any better.  Not knowing any better is fine for the ordinary person, but it's something of a bait-and-switch for those of us assured of Obama's genius and massive education skills.

    Don't be hard on Obama for misspeaking – he has had to learn the languages of all 57 states, after all.

    I am so glad that the media sycophants frequently tell me how intelligent he is!!!!!!!
